  • Publication number: 20180349755
    Abstract: The technology described herein allows an interactive program to leverage a knowledge graph to maximize the likelihood of successfully understanding the user's query and at the same time minimize the number of turns taken to understand the user. A goal of the technology described herein is to formulate response queries that have a probability of completing the user's requested task accurately while issuing the fewest number of response queries to the user before determining the intended task. In order to accomplish this, the technology combines a reinforced learning mechanism with a knowledge-graph simulation score to determine the optimal response query.

  • Publication number: 20180329860
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for remote direct memory access (RDMA) optimized producer-consumer message processing in a messaging hub is provided. The method includes initializing a shared memory region in memory of a host server hosting operation of a messaging hub. The initialization provides for a control portion and one or more data portions, the control portion storing an index to an available one of the data portions. The method also includes transmitting to a message producer an address of the shared memory region and receiving a message in one of the data portions of the shared memory region from the message producer by way of an RDMA write operation on a network interface of the host server. Finally, the method includes retrieving the message from the one of the data portions and processing the message in the messaging hub in response to the receipt of the message.

  • Patent number: 9332083
    Abstract: A server and/or a client stores a metadata hash map that includes one or more entries associated with keys for data records stored in a cache on a server, wherein the data records comprise Java Virtual Machine (JVM) artifacts or monitoring information. Each of the entries stores metadata for a corresponding data record, wherein the metadata comprises a server-side remote pointer that references the corresponding data record stored in the cache, as well as a version identifier for the key. A selected data record is accessed using a provided key by: (1) identifying potentially matching entries in the metadata hash map using the provided key; (2) accessing data records stored in the cache using the server-side remote pointers from the potentially matching entries; and (3) determining whether the accessed data records match the selected data record using the provided key and the version identifiers from the potentially matching entries.

  • Patent number: 8977549
    Abstract: A natural language business system and method is developed to understand the underlying meaning of a person's speech, such as during a transaction with the business system. The system includes a speech recognition engine, and action classification engine, and a control module. The control module causes the system to execute an inventive method wherein the speech recognition and action classification models may be recursively optimized on an unisolated performance metric that is pertinent to the overall performance of the natural language business system, as opposed to the isolated model-specific criteria previously employed.

  • Patent number: 8943485
    Abstract: Detecting localizable native methods may include statically analyzing a native binary file of a native method. For each function call invoked in the native binary, it is checked whether resources accessed through the function call is locally available or not. If all resources accessed though the native method is locally available, the method is annotated as localizable.

  • Patent number: 8768699
    Abstract: Techniques for assisting in translation are provided. A speech recognition hypothesis is obtained, corresponding to a source language utterance. Information retrieval is performed on a supplemental database, based on a situational context, to obtain at least one word string that is related to the source language utterance. The speech recognition hypothesis and the word string are then formatted for display to a user, to facilitate an appropriate selection by the user for translation.
