  • Patent number: 11403596
    Abstract: Systems and method for managing human interactions is described. An integrated system may receive dataset from multiple disparate sources. The received dataset may be processed by corresponding data processing engines and transformed into textual dataset by respective adapters in the integrated system. The textual dataset may be further processed and transformed into unified dataset by components in integrated system. For instance, such processing may include analysis based on comprehension, context of the interaction, etc. Based on further analysis, the unified dataset may be classified and highlighted into items that may correspond to action items, follow ups, questions or any other important information, insights provided or regenerated based on an analysis from the human interactions.

  • Patent number: 11308113
    Abstract: A cognate specification system manages and enforces digital, canonical representations of entities that are added to and in the system by creating a composite entity key (“EntityKey”) that uniquely and immutably identifies each entity within the system, and that is created based upon the attributes of the entity rather than being arbitrarily assigned. Entities may be organized into various types or cognates, each associated with distinct sets of attributes. A physical or digital referent may be added to the system as an entity by specifying attributes. In such a system, any entity, whether a physical or digital referent, a process, or other type, is uniquely and verifiably identifiable, and may be linked to or associated with other entities, allowing users of the system to produce and access specification granularity beyond traditional approaches focused on systems interoperability.

  • Patent number: 11301643
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for translating strings in a human language that are associated with code, such as code that declares user interface elements in association with which the strings can be displayed. The strings can be embedded in code, or can be included in files that are accessed by the code or used in creating executable code. Strings can be extracted from data, such as files, received in a translation request. After translation, such as by a human translator or using automatic translation, the translation results can be provided in response to the translation request. The translation process can be automated, such that changes to files in a code repository can trigger a translation request. Disclosed technologies can facilitate the production of programs that are localized using different human languages.

    Abstract: A tool for standardized layout transformations of BIDI data exchanged between legacy and modern systems is provided. Responsive to a determination that data requested in a client request is BIDI data, the tool initiates a layout transformation of the data requested at a single point within a database server. The tool determines a plurality of data from a connection string of the client request, wherein the plurality of data indicates a type of bi-directional data transformation. Responsive to the plurality of data from the connection string indicating data being returned to the client application from a database, the tool converts visual data to logical data at the single point within the database server. The tool returns transformed BIDI data to a client application. The tool inserts the transformed BIDI data into a database.

  • Patent number: 11132374
    Abstract: Techniques for assigning one or more values to properties or form fields. One technique includes receiving a query for a property associated with an attribute of an element of software, executing a search within a storage device for the property that satisfies the query, displaying the property and attributes that support the property, and receiving a first type of input regarding the property. The first type of input includes a value for the property. The technique further includes receiving a second type of input that includes selection of at least one attribute from the attributes identified to support the property, and assigning the value for the property to the at least one attribute.

  • Patent number: 11120064
    Abstract: A data records service is configured to receive original data records and, in parallel, generate a transliterated version of the original data record into a phonetic based language. Individual fields of data records can be transliterated by identifying a primary language, generating language specific tokens for individual text portions, and transliterating the token. The records processing service can then execute matching models on both original data records and transliterated data records to detect matching data records.

  • 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.
