  • Patent number: 10635673
    Abstract: Linking of a child table to a parent table in a database system. For a given parent table row, an expression associated with the particular row is identified. The expression may be a semantic expression that comprises something different than or more than an equals expression or a contains expression. The expression might also take as input a field of the parent table other than the primary key of the parent table. For each of multiple (and potentially all) rows of a child table, the expression is evaluated against a foreign key of the corresponding row of the child table. If the foreign key matches the expression, an association is created, and perhaps saved, between the foreign key and the particular row of the parent table. The expressions may differ even down to the granularity of a single row in the parent table, thereby enabling perhaps custom per-row expressions.

  • Patent number: 10454962
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for generating term frequencies of known terms based on crowdsourced differentially private sketches of the known terms. An asset catalog can be updated with new frequency counts for known terms based on the crowdsourced differentially private sketches. Known terms can have a classification. A client device can maintain a privacy budget for each classification of known terms. Classifications can include emojis, deep links, locations, finance terms, and health terms, etc. A privacy budget ensures that a client does not transmit too much information to a term frequency server, thereby compromising the privacy of the client device.

  • Patent number: 10423640
    Abstract: The use of multiple logical data models to expose a data storage system. Each logical data model may expose the data storage system using a semantic mapping set that maps sets of entities or attributes of the respective logical data model to corresponding sets of entities or attributes of the physical data model or perhaps directly to the data storage system itself. Each logical data model might serve a different vertical, and have a particular modelling notation selected by the logical data model provider. The mapping may also translate different logical modelling notations into a common logical modelling notation for use in communicating with the physical data model. The system may account for the lifecycle of the logical data model including birth or retirement of logical data model entities, and merging or splitting of logical data models.
