  • Patent number: 11361339
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a system, method, and computer program for providing users with notifications of a cashback rewards from a shopping portal using screen and email analysis. A shopping portal system analyzes the content and characteristics of user emails, as well as screens viewed by the user through a client application (e.g., webpages and mobile application screens), to identify probable order-confirmation emails and screens. In response to identifying an order-confirmation email or an order-confirmation screen, the system determines whether a cashback reward should be credited to the user for the order corresponding to the order-confirmation email/screen. In response to an order-confirmation email or screen satisfying the criteria for a cashback reward, the system credits a user account with the cashback reward and notifies the user of the reward.

    Abstract: The invention provides, in one aspect, a method of searching an RDF triples data store of the type in which the triples are maintained in accord with a first storage schema. The method includes inputting a first query specifying RDF triples that are to be identified in the data store. That first query assumes either (i) that the triples are stored in a schema-less manner (i.e., with no storage schema) or (ii) that the triples are maintained in accord with a second storage schema that differs from the first. The method further includes generating, from the first query, a second query that specifies those same RDF triples, yet, that reflects the first storage schema. That second query can be applied to the RDF triples data store in order to identify and/or retrieve the desired data.

  • Patent number: 11328214
    Abstract: A method and associated systems provide real-time response to a request received from a real-time system like a self-driving vehicle or a device that communicates interactively with its environment. The response is selected from a set of candidate feasible responses by a group of computerized agents that each sort the feasible responses in order of that agent's specific preferences, based on that agent's particular priorities or expertise. The agents then reconcile their differences through an iterative procedure. During each iteration, each agent decides whether to retain its current preferences or to adopt the preferences of another agent. This decision is made by determining which preferences are most similar to that agent's own initial preferences, and by which preferences would be most useful in helping to achieve that agent's particular goals. When the agents reach consensus, the group's most-preferred response is returned quickly enough to provide real-time, interactive response.

  • Patent number: 11314489
    Abstract: Before generating code from an abstract model of a data store, the model is first analyzed to detect normalization, rationalization, naming conventions, structure conventions, and other anomalies. The analysis is scored, and the score may be weighted. The analysis also suggests scripted solutions for resolving the discovered anomalies. A developer may then choose to implement one or more of the suggested solutions prior to code generation. The score may be compared to a threshold and result used to gate subsequent actions. For example, generation of code from the abstract model may be prevented until such time as anomalies are sufficiently addressed so that the score meets a minimum threshold score.

  • Patent number: 11263692
    Abstract: Aspects described herein may allow for receiving authorization allowing monitoring a user's spending account. A base-line spending profile and a dysfunctional spending profile for the user are established. When notification of a pending purchase transaction is received, a determination is made as to whether the pending purchase transaction is in accordance with the base-line spending profile of the user. If the pending purchase transaction is in accordance with the base-line spending profile of the user, the pending purchase transaction is allowed, however, if the pending purchase transaction is not in accordance with the base-line spending profile of the user, then a temporary secondary approval may be instituted for a predetermined period of time and a secondary approval person is electronically notified that their approval is required before allowing the pending purchase transaction to be made using the spending account of the user.

  • Patent number: 11256995
    Abstract: A system and method that predicts whether a given protein-ligand pair is active or inactive, the ground-truth protein-ligand complex crystalline-structure similarity, and an associated bioactivity value. The system and method further produce 3-D visualizations of previously unknown protein-ligand pairs that show directly the importance assigned to protein-ligand interactions, the positive/negative-ness of the saliencies, and magnitude. Furthermore, the system and method make enhancements in the art by accurately predicting protein-ligand pair bioactivity from decoupled models, removing the need for docking simulations, as well as restricting attention of the machine learning between protein and ligand atoms only.

  • Patent number: 11256821
    Abstract: Methods and systems for identifying sensitive data (SD) stored on data repositories is disclosed. The data is processed to calculate a plurality of float feature (FF) vectors associated with the data. The FF vectors are clustered into a plurality of clusters, each cluster associated with a respective subset of the data. A DNA vector representative of the cluster is generated for each cluster. The DNA vectors of respective clusters are compared to one or more FF vectors calculated for a respective one or more user supplied examples of SD. One or more clusters are classified as SD based on the result of the comparing, thereby identifying respective subsets of data as SD.

  • Patent number: 11250332
    Abstract: A method, system and computer-usable medium are disclosed for automating the generation of an incorrect answer to a question suitable for a multiple choice exam. An input corpus of human-readable text associated with a subject domain is provided to a question generation system, where it is processed to generate a set of question-answer (QA) pairs. The set of QA pairs is then processed with the corpus of input text to extract a set of input keywords and concepts. A concept dependency graph is then used to perform disambiguation operations on the set of input keywords and concepts, and the reference keywords and concepts it contains, to generate a set of distractor words. The resulting set of distractor words is then processed with the set of QA pairs to generate a set of multiple choice question-answers that include various distractor answers.

  • Patent number: 11238545
    Abstract: Illustrative embodiments of the present invention are directed to methods and computer systems for reporting a consumer's usage of a resource. A computer system retrieves consumer characteristic data and resource usage data for the first consumer and a set of second consumers including characteristic data related to each consumer. The computer system selects at least one consumer that is similar to the first consumer from the set of second consumers based upon a plurality of common criteria between the first consumer's characteristic data and a second consumer's characteristic data. The computer processes may be performing iteratively until the total number of similar consumers is equal to or greater than the predetermined number of consumers. Once a desired number of similar consumers is found, the computer system generates a report that displays the first consumer's resource usage data and the at least one similar consumers' resource usage data.
