  • Patent number: 11568260
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure enable humanly-specified relationships to contribute to a mapping that enables compression of the output structure of a machine-learned model. An exponential model such as a maximum entropy model can leverage a machine-learned embedding and the mapping to produce a classification output. In such fashion, the feature discovery capabilities of machine-learned models (e.g., deep networks) can be synergistically combined with relationships developed based on human understanding of the structural nature of the problem to be solved, thereby enabling compression of model output structures without significant loss of accuracy. These compressed models provide improved applicability to “on device” or other resource-constrained scenarios.

  • Patent number: 11231961
    Abstract: A method may include obtaining multiple operations configured to be performed in a serial fashion to implement a function. In some embodiments, each operation may be performed with respect to a parameter and an input. The method may also include obtaining an indication of multiple resources configured to perform the operations and a duration for each of the multiple resources to perform each of the multiple operations individually. The method may also include modeling, as a binary optimization, a scheduling of the resources to perform the multiple operations that reduces a total duration to perform the multiple operations based on the duration for each of the multiple resources to perform each of the multiple operations individually. The method may further include solving the binary optimization to determine a schedule of the multiple resources and performing, by the multiple resources, the multiple operations according to the schedule to implement the function.

  • Patent number: 11233787
    Abstract: Complex cloud-based system with many different entities, e.g., servers, clients, databases, firewalls, other machines, etc. often require on call engineers to be available to help with maintenance, emergencies, and other tasks. Sometimes ad hoc access is required when on call engineers are unable to resolve a particular issue. Organizations that manually manage access to on call and ad hoc engineer access, may do so relatively easily if they are a smaller organization. But, for larger or more complex environments, manual processes represent a significant burden. An alternative is automatically grant and revoke access. For example, if a vendor tracks your on call engineers, on call statuses may be identified to automatically grant access while on call. For ad hoc access, a requestor may request temporary access, and if valid, access may also be automatically granted for a desired time period. Automation frees valuable limited resources for other tasks.

  • Patent number: 11222182
    Abstract: A receiving unit (310) receives a message transmitted from any one of the users that are talk targets. The interpreter (341) attempts to interpret, as an answer to a question, the message received by the receiving unit (310). A collector (342) collects, upon success of the attempt made by the interpreter (341), the interpreted answer as the answer from the user who sends the message. When a predetermined requirement is satisfied in a state where a yet-to-respond user whose answer is not yet collected by the collector (342) is present, an inquiry transmitter (321) transmits an inquiry about the question to at least the yet-to-respond user among the users. A result transmitter (322), after the answers are collected from all of the users, transmits to the users a message indicating a result obtained by tallying the answers.

  • Patent number: 11157680
    Abstract: In implementations of systems for suggesting content components, a computing device implements a design system to receive input data describing a feature of a content component to be included in a hypertext markup language (HTML) document. The design system represents that feature of the content component as a document object model (DOM) element and determines a hash value for the DOM element using locality-sensitive hashing. Manhattan distances are computed between the has value and has values described by a segment of content component data. The hash values were determined using the locality-sensitive hashing for DOM elements extracted from a corpus of HTML documents. The design system generates indications, for display in a user interface, of candidate content components for inclusion in the HTML document based on the Manhattan distances.
