  • Patent number: 11347576
    Abstract: Some embodiments of the invention provide methods for performing root cause analysis for non-deterministic anomalies in a datacenter. For instance, the method of some embodiments identifies a root cause for degradation in performance of one or more components in a network of the datacenter. This method collects and generates resource consumption data regarding resources consumed by a set of components in this network. The method performs a first analysis on the collected and/or generated data to identify an instance in time when one or more components, while still operational, are possibly suffering from performance degradation. The method then performs a second analysis on the collected and/or generated data associated with the identified time instance to identify a root cause of a performance degradation of at least one component in the network.

  • Patent number: 11334767
    Abstract: Described is a system to evaluate and reduce perception error in object detection and recognition. The system includes a perception module that receives perception data (of an object(s)) from an environment proximate a mobile platform. Perception probes are generated that describe one or more characteristics of the objects. The perception probes are converted into probabilistic signal temporal logic (PSTL)-based constraints that provide axioms having statistical analysis of the perception probes. The axioms are evaluated to classify the perception probes as valid or erroneous. Optimal perception parameters are generated by solving an optimization problem based on the axioms, which allows the system to adjust the perception module based on the optimal perception parameters.

    Abstract: Detecting fraudulent activity can be a complex, manual process. In this paper, we adapt statistical properties of count data in a novel algorithm to uncover records exhibiting high risk for fraud. Our method identifies shelves, partitioning data under the counts using a Student's t-distribution. We apply this methodology on a univariate dataset including cumulative results from phone calls to a customer service center. Additionally, we extend this technique to multivariate data, illustrating that the same method is applicable to both univariate and multivariate data.

    Abstract: Disclosed is an inspection system for a cable, pipe or wire transit having a plurality of transit elements in a sealed installation of cables, pipes or wires at a site. A portable inspection device has a controller and an RFID interface. The transit has an RFID chip with a first memory area which stores an identity of the transit, and a second memory area. The controller reads the identity of the transit via the RFID interface, records detailed operational integrity status data of the transit elements, obtains a status indication representing an assessed overall operational integrity status of the transit based on the recorded detailed operational integrity status data, transmits the obtained status indication via the RFID interface to the transit for storage in the second memory area of the RFID chip, and makes the recorded detailed operational integrity status data or the obtained status indication available to a maintenance server together with the read transit identity.

  • Patent number: 11232292
    Abstract: An activity recognition system is disclosed. A plurality of temporal features is generated from a digital representation of an observed activity using a feature detection algorithm. An observed activity graph comprising one or more clusters of temporal features generated from the digital representation is established, wherein each one of the one or more clusters of temporal features defines a node of the observed activity graph. At least one contextually relevant scoring technique is selected from similarity scoring techniques for known activity graphs, the at least one contextually relevant scoring technique being associated with activity ingestion metadata that satisfies device context criteria defined based on device contextual attributes of the digital representation, and a similarity activity score is calculated for the observed activity graph as a function of the at least one contextually relevant scoring technique, the similarity activity score being relative to at least one known activity graph.

  • Patent number: 11216313
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for processing a resource request are provided. The method includes: classifying, by a computing device, access virtual objects into a plurality of density grades according to a density of interaction virtual objects in a current interactive range of each access virtual object; allocating a resource request quota to each density grade. The method also includes: when a resource request sent by an access virtual object in a first density grade is received within the first preset duration, processing the resource request if the resource request quota corresponding to the density grade is greater than the preset quota threshold, and subtracting a preset value from the resource request quota corresponding to the density grade; and rejecting the resource request if the resource request quota corresponding to the density grade is not greater than the preset quota threshold.
