  • Patent number: 11954126
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for carrying out predictive analysis where a plurality of data sets may be ingested from a data lake. A data analyzer may tag the ingested data sets, detect redundant occurrence of multiple attributes such as, a row, a column, and a list in the tagged data set. The data analyzer may eliminate the detected redundant multiple attributes. Further, a model selector and evaluator may execute a machine learning (ML) model to conduct predictive analysis on the data set. The execution may be done based on a predefined set of instructions stored in a database. The executed ML model may be validated upon determining that the predictive analysis yields a positive response for the transformed data set.

  • Patent number: 11946753
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to generating and modifying recommended event sequences utilizing a dynamic user preference interface. For example, in one or more embodiments, the system generates a recommended event sequence using a recommendation model trained based on a plurality of historical event sequences. The system then provides, for display via a client device, the recommendation, a plurality of interactive elements for entry of user preferences, and a visual representation of historical event sequences. Upon detecting input of user preferences, the system can modify a reward function of the recommendation model and provide a modified recommended event sequence together with the plurality of interactive elements. In one or more embodiments, as a user enters user preferences, the system additionally modifies the visual representation to display subsets of the plurality of historical event sequences corresponding to the preferences.

  • Patent number: 11941667
    Abstract: Embodiments set forth techniques for managing advertisement auctions on a client device. The method can include the steps of (1) receiving, from a server device, a plurality of objects, where each object is associated with a respective digital asset, and each object includes, in association with the respective digital asset (i) a server-derived digital asset vector, (ii) a server-derived predicted tap-through rate, and (iii) a bid amount. In turn, and for each object of the plurality of objects, the client device (2) generates a respective estimated cost per impression for the object based on the information provided by the server device as well as information derived by the client device. Subsequently, the client device (3) identifies, among the plurality of objects, the object associated with the highest respective estimated cost per impression, and (4) causes an advertisement for the respective digital asset associated with the identified object to be displayed.

    Abstract: A method, computer system, and a computer program product is provided for computer log management. In one embodiment, in response to receiving a log request from a user, an input content is analyzed and adjusted according to input contents and user's previous activities. A similarity analysis and a fairness analysis is performed to determine similarities between the input content, as adjusted, and a plurality of log records in an object library. The similarity analysis includes analyzing any patterns and attributes. The attributes have a dimension, and each dimension has a predefined weight (W). The fairness analysis ensures that one type of log is not favored over others. A best possible match is then determined, and one or more logs are presented to the user providing the best possible match.

  • Patent number: 11907991
    Abstract: Systems and methods for item price assignment. A line recommendation engine receives unassigned records from a queue and stores one or more line recommendations for the unassigned item record in a recommendation database. The line recommendation engine can determine a new line should be recommended, and/or which existing lines the unassigned item record could be assigned to. A user interface can display the one or more line recommendations for the unassigned item record to a user and receive an input indicating a selected line identifier for the unassigned item record. A machine learning engine can modify a parameter of the line recommendation engine based on the selected line identifier.
