  • Patent number: 11687047
    Abstract: A system and approach for storing factors in a quadratic programming solver of an embedded model predictive control platform. The solver may be connected to an optimization model which may be connected to a factorization module. The factorization module may incorporate a memory containing saved factors that may be connected to a factor search mechanism to find a nearest stored factor in the memory. A factor update unit may be connected to the factor search mechanism to obtain the nearest stored factor to perform a factor update. The factorization module may provide variable ordering to reduce a number of factors that need to be stored to permit the factors to be updated at zero floating point operations per unit of time.

  • Patent number: 11651271
    Abstract: Computer systems and associated methods are disclosed to detect a future change point in time series data used as input to a machine learning model. A forecast for the time series data is generated. In some embodiments, a fitting model is generated from the time series data, and residuals of the fitting model are obtained for respective portions of the data both before and after a potential change point in the future. The change point is determined based on a ratio of residual metrics for the two portions. In some embodiments, data features are extracted from individual segments in the time series data, and the segments are clustered based on their data features. A change point is determined based on a dissimilarity in cluster assignments for segments before and after the point. In some embodiments, when a change point is predicted, an update of the machine learning model is triggered.

  • Patent number: 11640505
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide systems and methods for an Explicit Memory Tracker (EMT) that tracks each rule sentence to perform decision making and to generate follow-up clarifying questions. Specifically, the EMT first segments the regulation text into several rule sentences and allocates the segmented rule sentences into memory modules, and then feeds information regarding the user scenario and dialogue history into the EMT sequentially to update each memory module separately. At each dialogue turn, the EMT makes a decision among based on current memory status of the memory modules whether further clarification is needed to come up with an answer to a user question. The EMT determines that further clarification is needed by identifying an underspecified rule sentence span by modulating token-level span distributions with sentence-level selection scores. The EMT extracts the underspecified rule sentence span and rephrases the underspecified rule sentence span to generate a follow-up question.

  • Patent number: 11620581
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided to implement an ensemble of unsupervised machine learning (ML) models. The ensemble of unsupervised ML models processes a portion of input data to generate an ensemble output and the ensemble output is output to an authorized user computing device to obtain user feedback from the authorized user via the user computing device. The user feedback indicates a correctness of the ensemble output. The mechanisms modify at least one feature of the ensemble of unsupervised ML models based on the obtained user feedback to thereby generate a modified ensemble of unsupervised ML models. Subsequent portions of input data are then processed using the modified ensemble of unsupervised ML models.

  • Patent number: 11620573
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, for totally corrective boosting with cardinality penalization are described. One of the methods includes obtaining initialization data identifying training examples, a dictionary of weak classifiers, and an active weak classifier matrix. Iterations of a totally corrective boosting with cardinality penalization process are performed, wherein each iteration performs operations comprising selecting a weak classifier from the dictionary of weak classifiers that most violates a constraint of a dual of the primal problem. The selected weak classifier is included in the active weak classifier matrix. The primal problem is optimized, and a discrete weight vector is determined. Weak classifiers are identified from the active weak classifier matrix with respective discrete weights greater than a threshold. The regularized risk is optimized, and a continuous weight vector is determined.

  • Patent number: 11614846
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to tracking user engagement with an interface. In one aspect, interaction of a user with a user interface can be detected and, in response to such interaction, it can be determined if the user interface was updated. In a scenario in which it is determined that the user interface was updated, an impression metric indicative of engagement of the user with the user interface can be updated. The updated metric can permit the tracking of user engagement.

  • Patent number: 11609894
    Abstract: Data storage system conflict management techniques are described. In one example, data is sent by client devices to both a repository system and a search index system of a data storage system. Each of the client devices maintains, locally, records of changes to data of the repository system, e.g., through use of an invertible Bloom lookup table. The records are used as a basis by the client devices to send reports to an arbiter system and used to detect conflicts When detected, a conflict request is communicated to client devices involved in the conflict as well as to the repository system and responses used to generate a correction that is communicated to update the repository system and search index system.

  • Patent number: 11599104
    Abstract: A controller for controlling an operation of a system is disclosed. The controller receives an input signal indicative of the operation of the system and rotates a test signal multiple times with different circular shifts to produce different rotations of the test signal forming a matrix data structure with the input signal. The input signal and the test signal are time-series data having values monotonically measured over time. The controller is further configured to apply a sliding three-dimensional (3D) window method to the matrix data structure to produce statistics of the input signal with respect to the rotations of the test signal. The sliding 3D window method iteratively moves window over the matrix data structure to compute a value of the statistics for a segment of the matrix data structure within the window. Furthermore, the controller controls the operation of the system according to the statistics of the input signal.

  • Patent number: 11594308
    Abstract: Methods and systems providing adaptive assessment of a physical subject to efficiently collect assessment data and modify an assessment schedule based on the analyses. The methods and systems can control the timing of each assessment in order to collect data at times and under conditions that are most informative about the physical subject. Such adaptive methods and systems significantly minimize the frequency of data collection without loss in accuracy or precision and can increase test reliability through reduction in redundancy. The ability to estimate an unknown, underlying function using a small number of free parameters that remain constant regardless of the number of data points being estimated substantially reduces the error of the function estimate. Because estimates of the measurement error are achieved with a minimum of sampled assessments, and with great accuracy, the statistical power of clinical trials, for example, can be greatly increased.
