    Abstract: A process adapts user-initiated search queries. The process executes at a client device with a microphone. The process downloads audio fingerprints from a remote server for a plurality of video programs, and downloads information that correlates the audio fingerprint to the video programs. The audio fingerprints are preselected according to relevancy criteria, including stored user preferences and prior search queries by the user. The audio fingerprints and correlating information are stored locally. The process detects ambient sound using the microphone and computes one or more sample audio fingerprints from the detected ambient sound. The process matches a sample audio fingerprint to a locally stored audio fingerprint and uses the correlating information to identify a first video program corresponding to the matched sample audio fingerprint. The process then receives user input to initiate a search query. The process provides auto-complete suggestions for the search query based on the first video program.

    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method and system for generating question variations to user input. The method comprises receiving a user input comprising at least one sentence from a user. Further, plurality of keywords and associated plurality of features are extracted from the at least one sentence. Thereafter, a plurality of question variations is generated for the user input by using one or more subgraphs identified from a trained knowledge graph based on the plurality of keywords and the associated plurality of features. The plurality of keywords and the associated plurality of features are extracted using rich semantics processing, transformation of words from one form to another and similarity. The one or more subgraphs include an entity specific graph and an action specific graph. The system and method of the present disclosure fetches real time user input and generates probable question variations for the user input.

  • Patent number: 11074248
    Abstract: Techniques are described for generating a map of operations to ingest external data. In an embodiment, DBMS receives a query schema that specifies an external data source and client-defined columns to arrange queried data from data fields of the external data source. DBMS generates an ingest schema for the queried data of the external data source such that the ingest schema specifies ingest data fields from the data fields of the external data source to be mapped to the one or more client-defined columns. Additionally, the DBMS identifies surplus data in the external data source, which has not been specified by the ingest schema and is different from the queried data defined by the client-requested query schema. The process not only ingests the ingest data fields from the external data source but also the surplus data from the external data source. In response to receiving a query according to a different query schema, DBMS generates a result set that based on the surplus data of the external data source.

  • Patent number: 11042552
    Abstract: A method may include obtaining multiple search paths, each search path including a previous search query and multiple search materials. The method may include generating multiple relevancy scores corresponding to the search paths. The method may include obtaining a current search query of a new search. The method may include identifying one or more previous search queries that match the current search query. The method may include identifying a first search path and a second search path based on the first search path and the second search path corresponding to the matching previous search queries. The method may include comparing a first relevancy score of the first search path with a second relevancy score of the second search path. The method may include presenting the search materials of the first search path in response to the first relevancy score being greater than the second relevancy score.

  • Patent number: 11036791
    Abstract: Descriptive data relating to at least a subset of a plurality of entities on a website is retrieved over a network. Endorsement data relating to the plurality of entities is retrieved from the website. A first set of probabilities is determined reflecting a probability that endorsements can be attributed to specific aspects. A second set of probabilities is determined reflecting a probability that terms can be attributed to aspects. Using the first set of probabilities and the second set of probabilities, a subset of the terms that are most probably associated with each entity are selected. Tags are then generated for each entity using the selected terms.

  • Patent number: 11030151
    Abstract: Systems and methods create an inverted index for a set of documents utilizing a heap data structure. The documents can be divided into a series of n-grams. The n-grams can be hashed, producing hashed n-gram values. A first hashed n-gram value can be placed into the heap data structure. Operations performed using the heap data structure obtain document identifiers that are associated with documents that include a hashed n-gram value that matches the top n-gram value in the heap.

  • Patent number: 11030651
    Abstract: A web page personalization system comprises a profile database and a profile manager. The profile database stores profiles for users. The profiles are comprised of segments of profile information for the users. The profile manager receives a request over an Internet for a group of segments of profile information about a user from a requestor. The request includes an anonymized identifier stored on a device for the user. The profile manager identifies a profile from the profiles for the user in the profile database using the anonymized identifier. The profile is comprised of the segments of the profile information about the user. The profile manager sends a portion of the profile information corresponding to the group of segments in an anonymized form in a reply over the Internet to the requestor. The requestor uses the group of segments to generate a personalized web page for the user.

  • Patent number: 10992609
    Abstract: Technology is directed to text message based concierge services (“the technology”). A user interacts with a concierge service (CS) via text messages to obtain a specific concierge service. For example, the user can send a text message to the CS, e.g., to a contact number provided by the CS, requesting for a recommendation of a restaurant, and the CS can respond by sending the recommendation as a text message. The CS determines a context of the request and generates recommendations that are personalized to the user and is relevant to the context. The CS can use various techniques, e.g., artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, to determine a context of the request and generate the recommendations accordingly. The CS can also receive additional information from a person associated with the CS, such as a concierge, to further customize or personalize the recommendations to the user.
