    Abstract: A system and method is described herein for data filtering to reduce functional, and trend line outlier bias. Outliers are removed from the data set through an objective statistical method. Bias is determined based on absolute, relative error, or both. Error values are computed from the data, model coefficients, or trend line calculations. Outlier data records are removed when the error values are greater than or equal to the user-supplied criteria. For optimization methods or other iterative calculations, the removed data are re-applied each iteration to the model computing new results. Using model values for the complete dataset, new error values are computed and the outlier bias reduction procedure is re-applied. Overall error is minimized for model coefficients and outlier removed data in an iterative fashion until user defined error improvement limits are reached. The filtered data may be used for validation, outlier bias reduction and data quality operations.

Bart learns and predicts satisfaction (e.g., click-through rate, consumption probability) for any combination of item, explanation, and context and, through logging and contextual bandit retraining, can learn from its mistakes in an online setting.

  • Patent number: 11303590
    Abstract: Implementations relate to automatic suggested responses based on message stickers provided in a messaging application. In some implementations, a computer-implemented method to provide message suggestions in a messaging application includes detecting a first message sent by a first user device to a second user device over a communication network, programmatically analyzing the first message to determine a semantic concept associated with the first message, identifying one or more message stickers based at least in part on the semantic concept, and transmitting instructions to cause the one or more message stickers to be displayed in a user interface displayed on the second user device.

  • Patent number: 11294623
    Abstract: Systems and methods for personalized quality assurance of inference models are provided. For example, data items associated with a group of devices may be obtained, results of applying the data items to inference models may be obtained, the results of applying the data items to a first inference model may be compared with the results of applying the data items to a second inference model, and the compatibility of the second inference model to the group of devices may be assessed, for example based on the comparison results. In some examples, when the second inference model is found compatible, the second inference model may be utilized in tasks associated with the group of devices. In some examples, when the second inference model is found incompatible, the system may forgo the usage of the second inference model in one or more tasks associated with the group of devices.

  • Patent number: 11295144
    Abstract: An obstacle classification method and apparatus based on unmanned vehicle, a device, and a storage medium are provided. The method includes: obtaining obstacle information of a plurality of obstacles detected by a detection device of the unmanned vehicle; and performing classification processing on the obstacle information using a compressed random forest model, to obtain a result of obstacle classification, where a non-leaf node of each decision tree of the compressed random forest model stores only feature index information, classification threshold index information and node position index information, the node position index information is left or right node position index information; a leaf node of each decision tree stores only class index information. Only part of information needs to be stored, and there is no need to occupy more memory and space of the unmanned vehicle system, thereby reducing the memory occupancy, and improving the speed and efficiency of classification.

  • Patent number: 11288695
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for using a machine learning model to analyze customers data for each of a number of customers interacting with electronic commerce, and determining whether the customers are high value customers. For the high value customers, one or more high value actions are then determined by the machine learning model, the one or more high value actions representing actions previously performed by or with respect to the customers and that correlate with a likelihood of the customers reaching high value customers status. Non-high value customers may then be prompted to perform the high value action which may elevate the non-high value customers to high value customers status.

  • Patent number: 11283679
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms for automatically identifying counters/features of a network component that are related to a state change (or event) for the network component or for the network itself. For example, using data obtained from the network component around a time of the state change, delta-averages for the counters/features around the time of the state change may be determined. The delta-averages may be utilized to determine which counters/features are most descriptive for a particular state change. Determining which counters/features are most descriptive may also include determining which counters/features are most relevant, i.e., counters/features that contribute most to preserving the manifold structure of the original data or counters/features with the highest or lowest correlation with the other counters/features in the data set.
