  • Patent number: 10332025
    Abstract: The Support Vector Machine (SVM) has been used in a wide variety of classification problems. The original SVM uses the hinge loss function, which is nondifferentiable and makes the problem difficult to solve in particular for regularized SVMs, such as with l1-norm. The Huberized SVM (HSVM) is considered, which uses a differentiable approximation of the hinge loss function. The Proximal Gradient (PG) method is used to solving binary-class HSVM (BHSVM) and then generalized to multi-class HSVM (MHSVM). Under strong convexity assumptions, the algorithm converges linearly. A finite convergence result about the support of the solution is given, based on which the algorithm is further accelerated by a two-stage method.

  • Patent number: 10291652
    Abstract: Technology for improving evaluation of policies comprising multiple rules is disclosed. By generating a policy evaluation tree controlling, for any given policy state, which rules should be evaluated next, policy optimization can be performed off-line prior to policy evaluation. For a policy, a policy evaluation tree can be generated such that each node in the tree corresponds to a policy state and each child node corresponds to a policy state that may result from an action that may be taken from its parent policy state. Policy evaluation trees may be generated by iteratively generating, from an initial policy state, possible next states as child states until a result of the policy is determined. Some next possible policy states may be pruned from the tree based on conditions such as having a high cost of evaluation compared to the likelihood a rule will yield an interesting result.

  • Patent number: 10282458
    Abstract: An event-notification system provides for monitoring resource-status parameters so as to repeatedly generate resource-status values for each of N resource-status parameters applicable to the resources. Each datapoint specifies a resource, a time of collection, and the values of parameters for the resource at the time. The datapoints are represented in an N-dimensional space, including N dimensions corresponding to the resource-status parameters and one dimension devoted to time. The datapoints are clustered on a proximity basis. The clusters are manually classified as Normal or Ack-Abnormal. A machine-learning engine develops a model that allows the classifications to be automated. Alerts are sent for respective Abnormal clusters rather than for each abnormal datapoint, thus reducing the amount of data an administrator must deal with to address potential problems.

  • Patent number: 9684775
    Abstract: A computing device processor may be configured with processor-executable instructions to implement methods of using behavioral analysis and machine learning techniques to identify, prevent, correct, and/or otherwise respond to malicious or performance-degrading behaviors of the computing device. As part of these operations, the processor may perform multifactor authentication operations that include determining one or more of a transaction type criticality value, a user confidence value, a software integrity confidence value, and a historical behavior value, using the one or more of these values to determine a number of authentication factors that are be evaluated when authenticating a user of the computing device, and authenticating the user by evaluating the determined number of authentication factors.

  • Patent number: 9678509
    Abstract: Techniques that optimize performance of simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) processes for mobile devices, typically a mobile robot. In one embodiment, erroneous particles are introduced to the particle filtering process of localization. Monitoring the weights of the erroneous particles relative to the particles maintained for SLAM provides a verification that the robot is localized and detection that it is no longer localized. In another embodiment, cell-based grid mapping of a mobile robot's environment also monitors cells for changes in their probability of occupancy. Cells with a changing occupancy probability are marked as dynamic and updating of such cells to the map is suspended or modified until their individual occupancy probabilities have stabilized.

  • Patent number: 9658840
    Abstract: The invention relates to a compiler and a method for compiling control logic for a plurality of devices of a networked control system, particularly to the automated assignment of control logic to devices. The invention provides with a compilation an automatic assignment procedure of an executable runtime code to devices of a networked control system. The assignment process of control logic to the devices may take various optimization criteria into account which include various distribution aspects, e.g. network resources or capabilities, such as available bandwidth or reliability of the network links, and device resources or capabilities, e.g. CPU, memory, power source or sleeping behavior which may influence the observed behavior of the devices, e.g. due to transmission delay or data packet loss.

  • Patent number: 9600764
    Abstract: Features are disclosed for using a neural network to tag sequential input without using an internal representation of the neural network generated when scoring previous positions in the sequence. A predicted or determined label (e.g., the highest scoring or otherwise most probable label) for input at a given position in the sequence can be used when scoring input corresponding to the next position the sequence. Additional features are disclosed for training a neural network for use in tagging sequential input without using an internal representation of the neural network generated when scoring previous positions the sequence.

  • Patent number: 9600537
    Abstract: A method for detecting and locating occurrence in a data stream of any complex string belonging to a predefined complex dictionary is disclosed. A complex string may comprise an arbitrary number of interleaving coherent strings and ambiguous strings. The method comprises a first process for transforming the complex dictionary into a simple structure to enable continuously conducting computationally efficient search, and a second process for examining received data in real time using the simple structure. The method may be implemented as an article of manufacture having a processor-readable storage medium having instructions stored thereon for execution by a processor, causing the processor to match examined data to an object complex string belonging to the complex dictionary, where the matching process is based on equality to constituent coherent strings, and congruence to ambiguous strings, of the object complex string.

    Abstract: An advanced intelligence engine (AIE) for use in identifying what may be complex events or developments on one or more data platforms or networks from various types of structured or normalized data generated by one or more disparate data sources. The AIE may conduct one or more types of quantitative, correlative, behavioral and corroborative analyses to detect events from what may otherwise be considered unimportant or non-relevant information spanning one or more time periods. Events generated by the AIE may be passed to an event manager to determine whether further action is required such as reporting, remediation, and the like.

  • Patent number: 9547754
    Abstract: A system and method for identifying unauthorized uploaded content that has been uploaded before a validated live reference stream has been ingested is disclosed herein. The live reference stream is compared against the indexed uploaded content repeatedly as the live reference stream is received. The matching process is done once per a time period until a match meeting a minimum match duration threshold is identified. The match is then determined to be unauthorized, and a claim is issued against the unauthorized uploaded content. The time period can be based on a utility based analysis that factors the computational costs of repeated matching versus the diminishing value of the live reference stream as time progresses.
