A bias is identified for each topic-document pair, and clusters of topics are created from the subset of topics. Each cluster of topics is determined from a value for each bias of each topic-document pair and from a frequency of occurrence of each topic. Each cluster is presentable according to a corresponding image configuration based on all or a subset of the bias dimensions and the frequency of occurrence of topics in a cluster that distinguishes the cluster from other clusters. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10540382
    Abstract: The integrity of an existing tag set associated with a web module is protected by reviewing user-generated proposed additions to the tag set to determine whether the proposed addition is appropriate. An initial test is made to determine whether a proposed addition is trivial; e.g., includes strings of the same character. If the proposed addition is not found to be trivial, it is assessed to determine its relatedness to the existing tag set. The proposed addition is made a part of the tag set only if it is found to be sufficiently related to the existing tag set.

  • Patent number: 10489512
    Abstract: A device receives document information associated with a document, and receives a request to identify insights in the document information. The device performs, based on the request, natural language processing on the document information to identify words, phrases, and sentences in the document information, and utilizes a first machine learning model with the words, the phrases, and the sentences to identify information indicating abstract insights, concrete insights, and non-insights in the document. The device utilizes a second machine learning model to match the abstract insights with particular concrete insights that are different than the concrete insights, and utilizes a third machine learning model to determine particular insights based on the non-insights. The device generates an insight document that includes the concrete insights, the abstract insights matched with the particular concrete insights, and the particular insights determined based on the non-insights.

  • Patent number: 10437714
    Abstract: Systems and methods for performing unit testing are described. During code level testing of the software code, the software code is scanned and converted into compiled code which is received by the system. The system further converts back the compiled code into its source code which comprises several units of source. However, the system filters out only user-defined units of source code for testing. The system further identifies rules for the units of source to be tested. Further, based on the rules and content of the units of source code, the system determines expected parameters. Further, the system utilizes the expected parameters for generating test eases for units of source code. The test eases generated may be a. combination of positive and/or negative test case. This way, the system automatically generates the test .cases and performs unit testing by using the generated test cases.

  • Patent number: 10423652
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for extending and reinforcing a knowledge graph using wiki-like web pages as a source of information. A web crawler parse a wiki-like source and obtain a topic entity from the source. Relationships between the topic entity and sub-topics within the source are identified and a graph is built with the topic and relationships to sub-topics. A candidate topic in the knowledge graph is identified, and a sub-graph of the knowledge graph is either identified or generated. The knowledge sub-graph contains the candidate topic and relationships to sub-topics. A similarity is computed between the source graph and the knowledge sub-graph. If the two graphs are sufficiently similar, then the source topic graph is merged with the knowledge graph.

  • Patent number: 10360503
    Abstract: A system for deriving ontologies to support inferencing with changing context, including changes of time. Embodiment of the invention use a unique system for modeling context and the interactions among multiple contexts in order to compute functions that can modify ontologies for presentation to a reasoning system. A parallel unique system allows previous inferences to be retrospectively modified based on newly derived ontological semantics. The system allows for the creation of new ontological elements and auditable models of agency and cause. It can be implemented using methods that delay evaluation until semantic interpretation is required, either at the ontological or inferential level.
