  • Patent number: 11972266
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer program products for hibernating a computing cluster. An information lifecycle manager facility (ILM) is invoked to carry out movement of data from the hypervisor of a node of a computing cluster to a different storage location. Multiple nodes of the computing cluster can be hibernated until the entire computing cluster has been hibernated. The ILM observes a replication factor of the computing cluster to suppress saving multiple copies of data. A hibernation object comprising state information of a node is stored in a network-accessible storage location. The hibernation object is accessed in response to an instruction to initiate restoration of all or parts of the computing cluster. The hibernation object can be stored using first cloud computing storage infrastructure and later, can be restored to a different cloud computing infrastructure. Upon restoration, the hibernated cluster has the same state as of the time of hibernation.

  • Patent number: 11966414
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a digital asset synchronization system that provides improved local and remote synchronization of digital assets. In particular, the digital asset synchronization system manages digital assets by separating each digital asset into multiple components stored as a set of distributed individual files. Employing individual components for a digital asset rather than single monolithic file enables the digital asset synchronization system to provide safe concurrent access to the digital asset from multiple applications on the same device and across different devices. In addition, using components for a digital asset provides the digital asset synchronization system with the ability to efficiently store and synchronize multiple versions of the digital asset, both locally and remotely.

  • Patent number: 11789902
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for improved access to rows of data in a distributed data system. Each data row is associated with a partition. Data rows are distributed in one or more files and an impure file includes data rows associated multiple partitions. A clustering set is generated from a plurality of impure files by selecting a candidate impure file based on file access activity metrics and one or more neighbor impure files. Data rows of the impure files included in the clustering set are sorted according to their respective associated partitions. A set of disjoint partition range files are generated based on the sorted data rows of the impure files included in the clustering set. Each file of the set of disjoint partition range files is transferred to a respective target partition.

  • Patent number: 11763157
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are disclosed for using machine learning models with private and public domains. Operations can be applied to transform input to a machine learning model in a private domain that is kept secret or otherwise made unavailable to third parties. In one example of the disclosed technology, a method includes applying a private transform to produce transformed input, providing the transformed input to a machine learning model that was trained using a training set modified by the private transform, and generating inferences with the machine learning model using the transformed input. Examples of suitable transforms that can be employed include matrix multiplication, time or spatial domain to frequency domains, and partitioning a neural network model such that an input and at least one hidden layer form part of the private domain, while the remaining layers form part of the public domain.

  • Patent number: 11748416
    Abstract: In some aspects, a content-extraction system can receive a query from a client device and generate a result set of digital content responsive to the query. For instance, the content-extraction system can obtain, from a search system, a set of digital content matching one or more keywords. The content-extraction system can exclude digital content items lacking core content, digital content items with duplicative content, or both. In some aspects, the content-extraction system can determine, for one or more remaining digital content items, a content attribute score. The content-extraction system can select, as the result set of digital content, a subset of digital content based on the content attribute scores. The content-extraction system can output the result set to the client device.

  • Patent number: 11694097
    Abstract: By the abovementioned technical solutions, the present disclosure provides optimizing a vector autoregressive model conforming to structural constraints of sparsity and acyclicity. A regularization term is introduced to the model to impose the sparsity structural constraint such that most off-diagonal coefficients of an autoregressive coefficient matrix are forced to zero values. One or more penalty terms are introduced to the model to impose the acyclicity structural constraint such that coefficients of the main diagonal are not causally self-related. The resulting model is then reformulated for computation as an augmented Lagrangian function, and further computed for different parameters in alternating iterations to make the computations tractable and within magnitude and precision limits of digital computers.

  • Patent number: 11669559
    Abstract: Techniques for implementing user interfaces, systems, and processes for multidimensional clustering and analysis are described herein. In one aspect, an application or cloud service receives a request to cluster a set of records where the request identifies a first set of one or more dimensions to use for clustering and a second set of one or more dimensions to analyze for correlation patterns. Responsive to receiving the request to cluster the set of records, the system generates clusters based at least in part on variances in the first set of one or more dimensions, wherein each cluster includes at least one record from the set of records. The system may generate, for each respective cluster, an analytic result that identifies how strongly the second set of one or more dimensions correlate to the respective cluster. The system may present the clusters and analytic results for further processing.

  • Patent number: 11663243
    Abstract: An information handling system for managing detection of objects includes a storage and a processor. The storage is for storing an encoder; a critical class classifier; a general classifier; and a decoder. The processor obtains data that may include one or more of the objects; encodes the data using the encoder to obtain encoded data; obtains a critical class classification for the encoded data using the critical class classifier; obtains a general classification for the encoded data using the general classifier; conditions the encoded data to obtain conditioned encoded data; decodes the conditioned encoded data using the decoder to obtain reconstructed data; makes a determination that the reconstructed data and the critical class classification indicate that the data is an unknown classification; classifies the data as being an unknown classification based on the determination; and performs an action set based on the unknown classification of the data.

  • Patent number: 11645613
    Abstract: Techniques for identifying images that are representative of items of inventory are described herein. A service provider may receive a description of an item of inventory from a merchant. The service provider may search one or more databases for images representative of the item. The images may include a merchant-facing image used to represent the item on a user interface of a merchant computing device and a customer-facing image used to represent the item to a customer on a user interface of a merchant computing device and/or a customer computing device. The customer-facing image may include an image that is more detailed, accurate, and/or aesthetically pleasing than the merchant-facing image. The service provider may associate the merchant-facing and customer-facing images with the item and may cause the merchant-facing and the customer-facing images to render on displays of the merchant and customer computing devices to represent the item.
