  • Patent number: 11069344
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for speech recognition using complex evolution recurrent neural networks. In some implementations, audio data indicating acoustic characteristics of an utterance is received. A first vector sequence comprising audio features determined from the audio data is generated. A second vector sequence is generated, as output of a first recurrent neural network in response to receiving the first vector sequence as input, where the first recurrent neural network has a transition matrix that implements a cascade of linear operators comprising (i) first linear operators that are complex-valued and unitary, and (ii) one or more second linear operators that are non-unitary. An output vector sequence of a second recurrent neural network is generated. A transcription for the utterance is generated based on the output vector sequence generated by the second recurrent neural network.

  • Patent number: 11042714
    Abstract: The language of a remote session can be synchronized with a client's language. A client-side synchronizer can be configured to detect when a client establishes a remote session on a server, whether to access a remote desktop or a remote application. When the client-side synchronizer detects the establishment of a remote session, it can access client-side language settings to gather language information and send it to a server-side synchronizer. The server-side synchronizer can then employ the language information to modify server-side language settings applicable the remote session so that the remote desktop or remote application will employ language settings that match the client-side language settings. In this way, the remote desktop or remote application will be in the language that the user expects even if the server's predefined language settings do not match user's language.

    Abstract: Additional background information is used with a trained neural network based model to help classify whether text is a subtly and/or ambiguously offensive. This additional background information can come from different sources such as the article on which the comment was made, world knowledge about the external entities (e.g., Wikipedia, Urban Dictionary), phrases referenced in the text being classified, and, the context of the previous comments/text in the thread. The background information is retrieved based on key entities (e.g., people, places things) and/or key phrases in the comment. Sentence matrix encodings are built for both the comment and the background information. The background information encoding is used to condition the comment encoding. The background information encoding, and the conditioned comment encoding are fed to a trained multi-level perceptron to classify the comment as hate speech or non-hate speech.

The robot then determines that each of the physical resources in the set are available to the application and, based on the determination, allocates exclusive use of the particular set of resources to the application by (i) generating a token corresponding to the set of resources, (ii) providing the token to the application, and (iii) updating token data that associates the token with the set of resources. The robot then controls access to the particular set of resources such that, while token data indicates that the token is valid, commands from applications that involve the set of resources are only executed when provided with the token corresponding to the allocation of access to the particular set of resources.

  • Patent number: 10789950
    Abstract: A multi-mode voice controlled user interface is described. The user interface is adapted to conduct a speech dialog with one or more possible speakers and includes a broad listening mode which accepts speech inputs from the possible speakers without spatial filtering, and a selective listening mode which limits speech inputs to a specific speaker using spatial filtering. The user interface switches listening modes in response to one or more switching cues.

  • Patent number: 10776248
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes: obtaining and storing, by a computer device, a service profile defining writing style rules, scoring information, and threshold information; receiving, by the computer device, an extracted program integrated information (PII) message from a client device; determining, by the computer device, an overall validation score of the extracted PII message is less than a threshold defined by the threshold information; generating, by the computer device, a modified PII message by changing content of the extracted PII message; and returning, by the computer device, the modified PII message to the client device for replacing the extracted PII message in a source code.

  • Patent number: 10769377
    Abstract: Aspects include learning object/action pairs for recipe ingredients. A method includes extracting an ingredient list that includes a plurality of entries from a recipe stored in an electronic format. Each of the plurality of entries includes one or more words. For each multi-word entry in the ingredient list, an ingredient associated with the entry is identified by comparing words contained in the entry to terms in a lexicon of cooking domain terms. It is determined whether an action corresponds to the identified ingredient. The determining includes parsing the entry to locate a verb that is associated with the identified ingredient. Based on determining that an action corresponds to the identified ingredient, a food item action pair that includes the identified ingredient and the located verb is output.

  • Patent number: 10762297
    Abstract: Embodiments for semantic hierarchical grouping of short text fragments by a processor. Sub-terms are extracted from a plurality of input text fragments according to a lexical sub-term hierarchy. Each of the sub-terms in the lexical sub-term hierarchy are matched with concepts based on an ontology of concepts representing a domain knowledge. The input text fragments are automatically grouped into a hierarchy of concepts based on the matching and a semantical relationship between each concept and matching sub-term.

  • Patent number: 10755245
    Abstract: A method for operating a transaction processing system to provide location based language capabilities and dynamic receipts in connection with money transfer services. One embodiment includes storing, in a database, information representative of transaction location based attributes and associated one or more languages, and storing information representative of receipt field attributes and associated receipt fields. Send and/or receive transaction requests from points of sale are received at a transaction processor. The received transaction requests are processed using the stored information in the database to identify transaction location attributes of the requests and the associated one or more languages, and processed using the information stored in the database to identify receipt field attributes of the requests and to determine the associated receipt fields.

  • Patent number: 10755050
    Abstract: The present invention allows text analysis and routing of an outgoing message. The system intercepts outgoing messages for analysis by a TAS software module. The module assigns an analytical score to the message, then compares the score to a threshold. If the score is below the threshold, the message is transmitted to its ultimate destination. If not, the message may be routed for correction by the message's composer or quality assurance staff. After such correction, the message new analytical score is generated and compared, and, if necessary, the process repeats again.

  • Patent number: 10733976
    Abstract: A virtual vocabulary database is provided for use with a with a particular user database as part of a speech recognition system. Vocabulary elements within the virtual database are imported from the user database and are tagged to include numerical data corresponding to the historical use of the vocabulary element within the user database. For each speech input, potential vocabulary element matches from the speech recognition system are provided to the virtual database software which creates virtual sub-vocabularies from the criteria according to predefined criteria templates. The software then applies vocabulary element weighting adjustments according to the virtual sub-vocabulary weightings and applies the adjustment to the default weighting provided by the speech recognition system. The modified weightings are returned with the associated vocabulary elements to the speech engine for selection of an appropriate match to the input speech.
