  • Patent number: 11983745
    Abstract: Aspects described provide systems and methods that relate generally to image analysis and, more specifically, identifying individual components and elements in an image. The systems and methods include a valuation application executing one or more application program interfaces (APIs) communicating with one or more websites via a network, where the user is prompted to enter information and/or take pictures or videos of their vehicle that they would like to sell. The valuation application utilizes a machine learning model to identify and value the various vehicle components within the images and videos. Based on the machine learning model, the valuation application identifies each component according to the images and videos and performs a search to determine the value of the components identified. The valuation application tabulates and summarizes the vehicle component resale values and resell information for the user to view.

  • Patent number: 11137986
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for mitigating similar and/or duplicate data. An embodiment operates by a computing device receiving a first and second code segment and parsing the first and second code segments into a first and second abstract syntax tree (AST), respectively. Thereafter, the computing device generates a first and a second normalized. AST corresponding to the first and second ASTs, respectively, based on a normalization rule such that the first and second normalized ASTs correspond to a first and second normalized code segment. The computing device then derives analytical information of the first and second normalized ASTs based on the first and second normalized code segments.

  • Patent number: 11138195
    Abstract: A method for obtaining query response data by a relational database management system (RDBMS) is provided. The method receives a user input query, by a processor associated with the RDBMS, wherein the user input query comprises a query request for a set of data; formats the user input query into a second query language suitable for communication between the RDBMS and a query response interface associated with a second data storage external to the RDBMS, by the processor, to generate a reformatted user input query, wherein the RDBMS is configured to perform query operations using an n-ary tree format, and wherein the query response interface is configured to perform query operations using a binary tree format consisting of two child nodes per non-terminal node of a binary tree; and transmits the reformatted user input query to the query response interface, via a communication device communicatively coupled to the processor.

  • Patent number: 11114189
    Abstract: A multi-model medical scan analysis system is operable to generate a generic model by performing a training step on image data of a plurality of medical scans and corresponding labeling data. A plurality of fine-tuned models corresponding to one of a plurality of abnormality types can be generated by performing a fine-tuning step on the generic model. Abnormality detection data can be generated for a new medical scan by performing utilizing the generic model. One of the plurality of abnormality types is determined to be detected in the new medical scan based on the abnormality detection data, and a fine-tuned model that corresponds to the abnormality type is selected. Additional abnormality data is generated for the new medical scan by utilizing the selected fine-tuned model. The additional abnormality data can be transmitted to a client device for display via a display device.

  • Patent number: 11106683
    Abstract: An interactive query processing system provides a user interface, including a “chat bot,” capable of receiving natural language queries from users, processing those queries to determine intents and entities, extracting data from applications and portals, synthesizing the data, and displaying the data to the user via the user interface in a useful, easy to understand, and unified format. The user utilizes a singular UI to receive data responsive to queries rapidly instead of manually extracting and synthesizing data from multiple different portals or dashboards. Additionally, the system provides actionable insights without requiring a user to sort or analyze data from multiple sources.

  • Patent number: 11061623
    Abstract: Storage virtualization techniques allow files and directories to be stored remotely, for example, by a cloud storage provider, but in a manner that appears to a user or application running on a local computing device as if the files are stored locally—even though the data of those files and directories may not be resident on the local computing device. That is, the contents of files and directories that may exist in the cloud look and behave as if they were stored locally on a computing device. The level of hydration of placeholders may be monitored and operations may be performed to reduce the impact of excessive hydration on the resources of the computing device.

  • Patent number: 11062142
    Abstract: In some examples, natural language unification based robotic agent control may include ascertaining, by a robotic agent, an image of an object or an environment, and ascertaining a plurality of natural language insights for the image. A semantic relatedness may be determined between each insight of the plurality of insights, and a semantic relatedness graph may be generated for the plurality of insights. For each insight of the plurality of insights, at least one central concept may be identified. Based on the semantic relatedness graph and the identified at least one central concept, the plurality of insights may be clustered to generate at least one insights cluster. For insights included in the least one insights cluster, a unified insight may be generated. Further, an operation associated with the robotic agent, the object, or the environment may be controlled by the robotic agent and based on the unified insight.
