  • Patent number: 10984047
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for mapping tables and columns of a legacy relational schema into synthetic tables that are dedicated for graph analysis. In an embodiment, a computer receives a mapping of relational tables to node tables and edge tables. The node tables contain columns and rows. The edge tables contain columns and rows. The rows of the node tables and the rows of the edge tables define a graph. Based on the mapping and the relational tables, the computer calculates a value of at least one column of at least one row of the node tables. Based on an execution of a query of the graph, the computer returns the value.

  • Patent number: 10817393
    Abstract: To ensure that there is an elected manager among storage nodes of an erasure coding group (“ECG”), an ECG manager (“ECGM”) election process is periodically performed among available storage nodes that are configured with the software to perform the services of an ECGM. When a storage node is activated, an ECGM process of the storage node begins executing and is assigned a process identifier (“PID”). A storage node can utilize a service query framework to identify other available storage nodes and retrieve their ECGM PIDs. The storage node then selects a PID according to a criterion and elects the storage node corresponding to the selected PID to be the acting ECGM. This process is performed periodically, so even if the acting ECGM storage node fails, a new ECGM is eventually selected from the available storage nodes.

  • Patent number: 10795789
    Abstract: To efficiently recover from a multiple storage node failure, a storage node concurrently restores data fragments to the multiple failed storage nodes, as opposed to restoring each node individually. In the VCS based storage technique, storage nodes are restored as part of an ECG repair process. For each ECG being repaired, a storage node performing the restoration process reads data fragments from active nodes in the ECG and generates new data fragments to replace any lost data fragments. The node then stores one of the new data fragments across each of the failed storage nodes. By concurrently restoring data fragments to each failed storage node, the data fragments needed to repair each ECG are only read once, thereby preserving disk operations and network bandwidth.

  • Patent number: 10789544
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for batching inputs to machine learning models. One of the methods includes receiving a stream of requests, each request identifying a respective input for processing by a first machine learning model; adding the respective input from each request to a first queue of inputs for processing by the first machine learning model; determining, at a first time, that a count of inputs in the first queue as of the first time equals or exceeds a maximum batch size and, in response: generating a first batched input from the inputs in the queue as of the first time so that a count of inputs in the first batched input equals the maximum batch size, and providing the first batched input for processing by the first machine learning model.

  • Patent number: 10776424
    Abstract: A method and a system for natural language processing of digital content objects, such as news stories, which ranks named entities in digital content objects by the impact that digital content objects that mention them are having on social media, is provided. Digital content objects are scored on a per object basis based on social media activity metrics associated with that digital content object. Named entities that appear in each digital content object are also extracted through natural language analysis. The named entities are then scored on a per entity basis to obtain an entity score that the object scores of those digital content objects in which that named entity appears. An entity ranking list can be created based on the entity scores, which can then be used in various different ways. For example, the entity ranking list can be displayed on a graphical user interface.

  • Patent number: 10735382
    Abstract: A system detects human activity through browser canvas events to mitigate the effects of an attack on a host, such as an application layer (layer 7) DDoS attack. A proxy, such as a HTTP/HTTPS “HTTP(S)” proxy server, configured to handle network traffic between a host and clients challenges clients engaging the host. The proxy challenges the clients by injecting code having a beacon and a shared encryption key into the content received from the host prior to transmission of the client. The code, when executed by the client, is configured to monitor user interactions (or lack thereof) with the content at the client in order to determine whether there is human activity at the client. The proxy receives and analyzes the information about interactions (or lack thereof) to determine whether a client is malicious (e.g., non-human activity) or non-malicious (e.g., human activity).

  • Patent number: 10733359
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for expanding user-provided content. User-provided input content is received via a user interface. Content that is relevant to the user-provided input content is identified from a repository of previously-generated content. The identified relevant content is divided into content sub-segments. From the content sub-segments, one or more pieces of candidate content are identified based on each content sub-segment's relevance to the received input content. At least one piece of identified candidate content is provided for display. A selection of one or more pieces of identified candidate content is received, such that the selected piece(s) of identified candidate content is appended to the received input content, thereby expanding the user-provided content.
