  • Patent number: 12008318
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments relate to the automatic generation of captions for visual media, including photos, photo albums, non-live video, and live video. The visual media may be analyzed to determine contextual information (such as location information, people and objects in the video, time, etc.). A system may integrate this information with information from the user's social network and a personalized language model built using public-facing language from the user. The personalized language model captures the user's way of speaking to make the generated captions more detailed and personalized. The language model may account for the context in which the video was generated. The captions maybe used to simplify and encourage content generation, and may also be used to index visual media, rank the media, and recommend the media to users likely to engage with the media.

  • Patent number: 11954458
    Abstract: An automated system and method of converting legacy decision logic to a target format. The legacy files are received by the decision logic translation system, which outputs the business rule content in a standard rule structure, according to the selected target format. The process involves decision logic-based rule extraction. In general, methods or processes for extracting business rules have been difficult to reproduce and do not present clearly the extracted rules regarding the concepts of business rules, their composition and categorization. These drawbacks lead to incomplete extraction of rules and massive manual effort to achieve a complete extraction and verification. In contrast, the proposed system overcomes these drawbacks, and outputs files that can be easily used to migrate the business rules to a new platform.

A geographic region may include multiple sub-regions, each of which may be associated with a respective one or more language variants. As an example, a geographic region may be a state or province, and each sub-region may have one or more dialects that are spoken by individuals in that sub-region. In some cases, a particular dialect may be predominant in a given sub-region. As a vehicle traverses a travel path, it may determine its current location, which geographic sub-region includes that location, and which language variant (e.g., dialect) is predominant there. That language variant may then be selected for in-vehicle communication with a vehicle occupant. The vehicle location determination may be made at or near where the occupant entered the vehicle.

Further, the machine translation system 1000 uses both the pseudo parallel corpus data having diversity, which has been obtained in large quantities, and the base parallel corpus data in a small quantity but with high accuracy, with the applied learning rates changed accordingly, to perform the learning process (training process) for the machine translation model. This allows the machine translation system 1000 to obtain a learned model (machine translation model) with very high accuracy.

The single artificial neural network multilingual text-to-speech synthesis model is generated by learning similarity information between phonemes of the first language and phonemes of the second language based on a first learning data of the first language and a second learning data of the second language.

  • Patent number: 11699434
    Abstract: Embodiments provide for improved data sequence validity processing, for example to determine validity of sentences or other language within a particular language domain. Such improved processing is useful at least for arranging data sequences based on determined validity, and/or making determinations and/or performing actions based on the determined validity. A determined probability (e.g., transformed into the perplexity space) of each token appearing in a data sequence is used in any of a myriad of manners to perform such data sequence validity processing. Example embodiments provide for generating a perplexity value set for each data sequence in a plurality of data sequences, generating a probabilistic ranking set for the plurality of data sequences based on the perplexity value sets and at least one sequence ranking metric, and generating an arrangement of the plurality of data sequences based on the probabilistic ranking set.

  • Patent number: 11647050
    Abstract: A policy management server manages a segmentation policy and policy constraints. The segmentation policy comprises a set of segmentation rules that each permit connections between specified groups of workloads that provide or consume network-based services. The policy constraints comprise a set of constraint rules that determine compliance of the segmentation rules. A workflow process may be initiated to resolve non-compliant rules by enabling an administrator to approve or deny the rule. In a large enterprise managing significant numbers of workloads, the policy constraints may be employed to ensure that overly permissive segmentation rules are not being created. This facilitates creation of a robust and narrowly tailored segmentation policy that reduces exposure of the enterprise to network-based security threats.
