  • Patent number: 11165785
    Abstract: Selective validation of subgroups of users against group rule parameters is performed to validate group rule parameters for a dynamic group rule. An administrator defines the group rule parameters and selects individual user accounts which are either expected to be included within and/or excluded from a full membership list for the dynamic group rule. For example, the administrator may select first user accounts that are expected to be included within the full membership list and/or second user accounts that are expected to be excluded from the full membership list. Then, a subgroup validation report is generated to inform the administrator whether or not individual user accounts from the subgroup of user accounts satisfy the group rule parameters and, therefore, will be included within the full membership list of the dynamic group rule. The subgroup validation report reveals the efficacy of the group rule parameters.

  • Patent number: 10867129
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a domain-name based framework implemented in a digital assistant ecosystem uses domain names as unique identifiers for request types, requesting entities, responders, and target entities embedded in a natural language request. Further, the framework enables interpreting natural language requests according to domain ontologies associated with different responders. A domain ontology operates as a keyword dictionary for a given responder and defines the keywords and corresponding allowable values to be used for request types and request parameters. The domain-name based framework thus enables the digital assistant to interact with any responder that supports a domain ontology to generate precise and complete responses to natural language based requests.

  • Patent number: 10834121
    Abstract: Implementations are provided herein for systems, methods, and a non-transitory computer product configured to use predictive analysis of quantifiable parameters associated with individual files stored on a distributed file storage system. In some embodiments, parameters are analyzed by machine learning so that real-time and scheduled antivirus scanning can be intelligently conducted. We teach creating a sequential order for scheduled antivirus scanning such that the files most likely to be accessed or needed by users in the future will be scanned for viruses before those files less likely to be accessed. We reconcile scheduled antivirus scanning with predictive analysis for real-time antivirus scanning. Our teachings encompass the use of heuristic data compiled, in some instances through machine learning, and analyzed on a per-file basis. We enable system administrators to determine which parameters to prioritize and to set thresholds for antivirus scanning, such as time limits.

  • Patent number: 10769183
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to enabling users to provide feedback on resources displayed in user interfaces. A feedback tool is executed to allow a user to specify a resource displayed in a user interface. Context metadata about the user interface is captured and stored by the feedback tool. The context metadata corresponds to runtime activity such as loading executable modules, rendering the user interface, handling windowing/input events, etc. The tool is used to specify a resource displayed in the user interface. This triggers capture of the specified resource and the runtime context metadata. The resource and context metadata are searched for in a database of known resources and their respective properties and identifiers. If a match is found, then the source-level identity of the resource is known. The feedback is associated with the resource and used to directly supplement or modify the resource in a source code resource file.

  • Patent number: 10719529
    Abstract: A method for presenting a trusted tag cloud to a user. The method includes associating a number of tags with a first user who applies the tags, calculating a weight of the tags being examined by a second user. The weight may be based on the identity of the second user, the identity of the first user, and examining the relationship between the two. The tags may then be presented to the user in accordance with the value of the weight.

  • Patent number: 10679137
    Abstract: Systems and methods disclosed herein compactly store representations of segment-specific interaction data from a real time data stream of data interactions by multiple entities to facilitate segment-specific analytics for particular time periods. Segment rules defining characteristics of entities within a segment are received. A first probabilistic data structure is created representing unique entity IDs included in instances of interaction data in the real time data stream during a first time period. A second probabilistic data structure representing unique entity IDs included in instances of interaction data in the real time data stream during a second time period different from the first time period. The first probabilistic data structure represents only entity IDs of entities within the segment and the second probabilistic data structure represents only entity IDs of entities within the segment. The first and second probabilistic data structures are indexed and stored.

  • Patent number: 10681168
    Abstract: According to various exemplary embodiments, professional identity content associated with a member of a social network service is identified, based on a network search for online content that contains online content attributes that match member profile attributes included in member profile data associated with the member. Thereafter, a display of a prompt is generated, via a user interface in a device, wherein the prompt invites the member to update a member profile page associated with the member, based on the identified professional identity content.

  • Patent number: 10437846
    Abstract: An administration tool can be used to provide data flexibility in a business intelligence (BI) server that is associated with a data warehouse. The administration tool can display one or more data objects that are adapted to be imported from an application framework into a physical model maintained on the BI server. The administration tool can further map the one or more data objects in the physical model into a logical model, also maintained on the BI server, which corresponds to at least one target table in the data warehouse. Additionally, the administration tool can publish an extension input to an extender associated with the data warehouse based on the logical model, wherein the extender operates to generate one or more metadata extensions based on the extension input.

  • Patent number: 10360271
    Abstract: Embodiments provide systems and methods configured to mine information available from informal sources (e.g., social media, blogs, and forums) regarding security vulnerabilities. Particular embodiments may comprise engine(s) of a backend in communication with a user through an interface of a frontend, and also in communication with an underlying database to store security information and related information (e.g. search parameters). Embodiments may allow creation of user-specific search phrases for searching information in one or more informal social media information sources. Search results may be consolidated, and users such as system administrators quickly alerted to possible security issues. Embodiments may refine data mining over time by tracking the reputation (e.g. for data accuracy, freshness) of various sources. Embodiments may also reference formal official and third party sources of security information.
