  • Patent number: 12007958
    Abstract: A method or system for generating recommendations based on detected correlations of static and dynamic data. For example, the system generates feature inputs for the machine learning model that is based on labeled static data as well as dynamic data indicating current usage. Notably, the dynamic data is not retrieved from a data store of known training data, but instead is streamed in real time from active databases accessible to the network. Furthermore, the system provides a formatting mechanism that translates user selected requirements and parameters from a human-readable format indicating particular attributes of a database to optimize (e.g., database performance, security, compliance, capacity planning, etc.) into data that may be included in a machine learning feature input that specifies which correlations to use (e.g., server operational statistics data, server log data, monitoring metrics, etc.).

  • Patent number: 11520825
    Abstract: In one implementation, a data transformation engine is employed to analyze an incoming JSON schema syntax and use a “best effort” model to convert a plurality of JSON schemas to other types of schemas such as an XML schema. The model is configured to be adaptable and dynamic in order to convert as much of the JSON as possible. In addition, the conversion tool is configured to transform schemas to other technologies and allow for conversion errors within one or more error thresholds. Further, the system may be distributed standalone with no dependencies to other implementations, such as BPM implementations.

  • Patent number: 11507850
    Abstract: A system receives data associated with a communication between one or more individuals. The data is split between each of the one or more individuals into text associated with that individual. Each of the text is modified to remove stop words and to duplicate key words. The text is merged to form a text corpus, from which a bag of words model is generated. Topics of the bag of words are classified using a topic classifier model. A purpose is identified based on the returned topic and keywords from the topic classifier model. Returned topics and keywords from the topic classifier model are linked to the communication.

  • Patent number: 11500833
    Abstract: A DBMS manages a high-performance accelerated database that is synchronized with a conventional client database. The accelerated database contains both “regular” accelerated tables, which each duplicate a table of the client database, and accelerator-only tables (AOTs) that are unique to the accelerated database and that may be used for analytical purposes. AOT rows are archived by moving the rows to a dedicated accelerator-only archive stored in the accelerated database. When a user query attempts to access accelerator-only data, the DBMS rewrites the query to adapt the requested operations to the accelerated database's partitioned archive/non-archive structure. The rewritten query specifies steps for accessing archived and non-archived accelerator-only data without forcing the DBMS front-end to generate a merged view of archived and non-archived accelerator-only data.

  • Patent number: 11467752
    Abstract: When performing a data migration of a first data store management system to a second data store management system, a data migration system receives a data migration rule, based on a data migration rule, converts a first data into a second data, acquires a first data model as a data model of the first data, acquires a second data model as a data model of the second data, and acquires a second program. Then, a data model conversion rule that causes the first data model to correspond to the second data model is generated based on the data migration rule, the first data model, and the second data model, and the second program is converted into a first program based on the data model conversion rule.

  • Patent number: 11423235
    Abstract: In embodiments, a reusable and adaptive multi-task orchestration dialogue system orchestrates a set of single-task dialogue systems to provide multi-scenario dialogue processing. In embodiments, for each question propounded by a user, using a deep learning predictive model, a best single-task dialogue system is chosen out of the set. In embodiments, multi-task orchestration is done without the need to change, or even understand, the inner workings or mechanisms of the individual single-task dialogue systems in the set. Moreover, the multi-task orchestration is also unconcerned with what rules are set in each individual single-task dialogue system. In embodiments, prior to selection of the best single-task dialogue system to return the best answer, new intents and entities are discovered and used to update an existing dialogue path. In embodiments, additional data is continually collected, and used to retrain model so as to further improve performance.
