  • Patent number: 11501302
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented for configuring a risk assessment engine to predict a risk of a user based on a topic classification across a set of unknown topics generated by a topic model. A risk determination system obtains a plurality of transactions previously conducted by a user. The risk determination system generates a risk document comprising a sequence of words that describe the plurality of transactions. A topic model is used to determine a topic classification for the user based on the sequence of words. The topic model comprises a natural language processor configured to classify the risk document to one or more topics based on the words within the risk document. The risk determination system configures the risk assessment engine to accept the topic classification as input value(s) for predicting a risk associated with the user.

  • Patent number: 11489797
    Abstract: In a method for distributed upload of documents an upload email address is assigned to a user and associated with a searchable document database accessible by the user via a user device and a network. Sender acceptance criteria are established for the upload email address. An email addressed to the upload email address and having a sender email address is received from an email sender via the network. A determination is made as to whether the received email meets sender acceptance criteria. Responsive to a determination that the email meets sender acceptance criteria, documents attached to the email are identified. Each identified document is associated with a document record comprising a document identifier and a sender identifier associated with the email sender and is stored in the searchable document database with the document record.

  • Patent number: 11409814
    Abstract: Embodiments herein provide for a more efficient web crawler (102) that accesses a plurality of links from a web page (106). In certain embodiments, the web crawler (102) determines link scores for each of the plurality of links, with each link score corresponding to a probability that the associated link leads to a web page (106) of a target page type. The plurality of links and the associated link scores are added to a priority queue (114). The web crawler (102) accesses a second web page (106) using the highest-ranked link in the priority queue (114), obtains links from that web page (106), identifies a link score for each of those links, and adds those links to the priority queue (114) based on their link scores. This process can be repeated for several pages, as needed, using the highest-rank link in each instance, until the crawler (102) identifies a web page (106) of a target page type.

  • Patent number: 11017019
    Abstract: Various aspects of the subject technology relate to systems, methods, and machine-readable media for authentic content search using style classifications. A system may be a search engine that uses a set of style classifiers to detect one or more styles associated with an image and a logistic regression model to determine a level of authenticity for the image based on the associated styles. Training images are fed to train a series of neural networks that output a set of style classifiers. An image is processed through the style classifiers to determine respective probabilities for each style classification. The results from the set of style classifiers are then input to the logistic regression model to determine an authenticity score for the image. For example, the authenticity score shows how authentic is an image (e.g., a score of 1.0 refers to 100% authenticity, whereas a score of 0.0 represents a non-authentic image).

  • Patent number: 10909125
    Abstract: A system associates sequentially descending weights with items in a reference list. The system identifies overlapping items from the first position to the second position in both the reference list and a test list. The system determines a weighted overlap for the overlapping items by combining the weights for each overlapping item to create a reference item weight, combining the weights for each item from the first position to the second position in the reference list to create a reference position weight, and determining the ratio between the reference item weight and the reference position weight. The system identifies overlapping items from the first position to the third position in both the reference list and the test list, and then determines a weighted overlap for these overlapping items. The system outputs the average weighted overlap as an efficiency evaluation of the information retrieval system that created the test list.

  • Patent number: 10148750
    Abstract: While providing a storage service to a client system, a storage system maintains a complete set of storage service metadata for the service on the same storage device that stores the user data received from the client system. When an event is detected that requires the storage service to be moved to a new storage system, the storage service can be moved to a new storage system by moving the storage device containing both the user data and the storage service metadata to the new storage system. The new storage system detects the storage device that has been moved, and detects the storage service metadata and user data. The new storage system then uses the storage service metadata and user data from the storage device to immediately reestablish the storage service with the client system, without having to perform a separate step of copying the storage service metadata from the previous storage system.

  • Patent number: 9749352
    Abstract: Provided are a harmful site collection device and method for determining a harmful site by analyzing a connection between harmful sites. The harmful site collection device extracts a URL linked to a web page of a harmful site; checks a link circulation on the basis of link information on a web page of the URL linked to the harmful site to determine whether the web page of the URL linked to the harmful site is a harmful site; and, when a URL of a prestored non-harmful site is extracted while the link circulation is checked, stops checking the link circulation that includes the URL of the non-harmful site. Accordingly, the harmful site collection device can more easily determine a harmful site merely with information on a URL linked to a web page and can reduce the amount of computation using information on a URL of a prestored non-harmful site.

  • Patent number: 9519414
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for providing whiteboard records accessibility to users interacting with a whiteboard. A whiteboard may enable two or more users to interact with the whiteboard concurrently. The whiteboard may identify the users interacting with the whiteboard and may identify permission settings associated with the users. Based on the identification of the users and detected permission settings, the whiteboard may activate a whiteboard records accessibility mode to provide access to whiteboard records. In a public mode, any user may interact with the whiteboard, and the whiteboard may provide access to a public records data store. In a private mode, the whiteboard may provide access to a separate private records data store associated with an authenticated user interacting with the whiteboard. When two users interact with the whiteboard concurrently, the whiteboard may separate the whiteboard records such that each user can access records corresponding to the detected permission settings.
