  • Patent number: 11687504
    Abstract: Data reduction services are implemented on one or more nodes of an IIoT data pipeline to intelligently determine an appropriate data reduction strategy based on characteristics of the incoming data. In one or more embodiments, data reduction components on the pipeline node or on an edge device define different data filtering rules or algorithms that are selectively applied to streaming time-series data based on a probability distribution of the data. The data pipeline node performs real-time distribution analysis on the streaming data to determine whether the data has a unimodal distribution, a multimodal distribution, or no mode, and selects one of the data filtering rules based on this determined probability distribution. In this way, the data is intelligently reduced in a manner that retains critical information within the reduced data set while achieving a high level of data reduction.

  • Patent number: 11677691
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a mentor application automatically obtains assistance with software applications. The mentor application generates a computer-generated help request associated with a first user of a software application. Based on the computer-generated help request and a set of user contexts associated with a set of users, the mentor application computes match scores. Each match score predicts how suitable a particular user is for servicing the computer-generated help request. Based on the match scores, the mentor application transmits at least one help request notification to at least one user included in the set of users to determine a second user to service the computer-generated help request. The mentor application then establishes a computer connection between the first user and the second user through which an interactive help session between the first user and the second user is held.

    Abstract: A system may generate image data of users within a facility. Such users may be part of a group that is unknown to the system. The system can predict group data for two or more users based on a resemblance or the users being within a threshold distance of each other. However, if a confidence level associated with the predicted group data is below a threshold value, the group data is deemed unreliable and assistance from an associate is deemed necessary. A user interface that includes a portion of the image data, information about the predicted group data, and other interface elements is presented to the associate via a display. Based on the input data received from the associate, the group data can be confirmed or rejected. If the group data is confirmed, an association is made between the users and a group identifier.

  • Patent number: 11651382
    Abstract: User data overlap determination in a digital medium environment is described. Initially, a user selects segments of user data for which a determination of overlap is to be made. For example, the user selects a segment representing users that are working professionals and a segment representing users that are mothers, such that working-mother users may correspond to the overlap. Regardless of the particular segments selected, an indication of those segments is received. One of multiple different overlap determining techniques—which can include a combined MinHash and HyperLogLog (HLL) technique and an Inclusion-Exclusion technique—may be selected for computing the overlap based on a number of segments indicated and numbers of users represented by the segments. The selected overlap determining technique is then used to compute the user data overlap between the indicated segments. Digital content including values indicative of the determined overlap is generated for presentation to a user.

  • Patent number: 11630512
    Abstract: In each trial, brain electrical activity at multiple points of a target person is measured. An acquirer of a determination device acquires response matrices for n trials under a first condition and response matrices form trials under a second condition. An analyzer performs canonical correlation analysis on the acquired response matrices to obtain first canonical variable time series. A distance calculator calculates a distance between the trials from the obtained first canonical variable time series to obtain a distance matrix. A determiner obtains a possibility that the n trials and the m trials are classified into two different clusters from the distance matrix and determines whether the first condition and the second condition are substantially different. It is possible to provide to a single target person a first content in n trials and a second content in m trials so as to determine a difference in interest of the single target person.

    Abstract: An apparatus for implementing a computing system to predict preferences includes at least one processor device operatively coupled to a memory. The at least one processor device is configured to calculate a parameter relating to a density of a prior distribution at each sample of a set of samples associated with the prior distribution. The at least one parameter including a distance from each sample to at least one neighboring sample. The at least one processor device is further configured to estimate, for the plurality of samples, at least one differential entropy of at least one posterior distribution associated with at least one observation based on the parameter relating to the density of the prior distribution at each sample and the likelihood of observation for each sample. The estimation is performed without sampling the at least one posterior distribution to reduce consumption of resources of the computing system.

  • Patent number: 11625735
    Abstract: A processor may receive user interaction data of a user for a plurality of electronically-presented offers. The processor may generate a plurality of labels, the generating comprising generating a label for each respective offer according to a comparison of the quality of the user interactions of the respective offer to the frequency of the user interactions of the respective offer. Each label may be a positive label or a negative label. The processor may determine whether the generating produced both positive and negative labels. The processor may select one of a plurality of available ML models, wherein a two-class ML model is chosen in response to determining that the generating produced both positive and negative labels and a one-class ML model is chosen in response to determining that the generating did not produce both positive and negative labels. The selected ML model may be trained and/or may be used to process user profile data and provide recommendations.

  • Patent number: 11615161
    Abstract: Described are computer-based methods and apparatuses, including computer program products, for dynamically enabling customized web content and applications. One or more rules are stored in a database. Default tag code is transmitted to a browser in response to a request from the browser, the default tag code including data that causes the browser to generate a tag module. An update is received from the tag module comprising data indicative of a visitor's interaction with web page content displayed through the browser. A condition associated with a rule from the one or more rules is determined to be satisfied based on the update. An action associated with the rule is performed, comprising transmitting custom targeted tag code to the tag module, wherein the custom targeted tag code includes data that causes the browser, upon execution of the custom targeted tag code by the tag module, to perform an action.
