  • Patent number: 11694276
    Abstract: This document describes a non-transitory computer readable media programmed to enrich an entered record submitted to be matched with a dataset record stored on a data storage device. The enrichment is done by supplementing data in the entered record with customer data from a dataset. The media is further programmed to search through a plurality of dataset records in the dataset for the entered record. The search is programmed to first determine if the entered record unambiguously matches one of the dataset records or if the entered record unambiguously does not match one of the dataset records. If the entered record does not unambiguously match one of the dataset records, score match characteristics using a Fellegi-Sunter algorithm, save the score as a highest score if the score is above the highest score less a threshold, and save a location of one of the dataset records as a matching record if the score is above a previous highest score.

  • Patent number: 10769140
    Abstract: Concept expansion using tables, such as web tables, can return entities belonging to a concept based on an input of the concept and at least one seed entity that belongs to the concept. A concept expansion frontend can receive the concept and seed entity and provide them to a concept expansion framework. The concept expansion framework can expand the coverage of entities for concepts, including tail concepts, using tables by leveraging rich content signals corresponding to concept names. Such content signals can include content matching the concept that appear in captions, early headings, page titles, surrounding text, anchor text, and queries for which the page has been clicked. The concept expansion framework can use the structured entities in tables to infer exclusive tables. Such inference differs from previous label propagation methods and involves modeling a table-entity relationship. The table-entity relationship reduces semantic drift without using a reference ontology.

  • Patent number: 10459945
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing for migrating feedback data from one digital asset to another digital asset are disclosed. Typically, the one digital asset is available for distribution from a network-based media distribution system, but then subsequently is removed from distribution for any of a number of reasons. However, since the one digital asset has been in use at the network-based media distribution system, it has accumulated feedback data. Hence, if the another digital asset serves (e.g., due to equivalency) to replace the one digital asset, then the accumulated feedback data from the one digital asset can be transferred to the another digital asset. As a result, the another digital asset can benefit from the feedback data that was previously associated with the one digital assert.

  • Patent number: 10417216
    Abstract: Key values can be defined at design time (e.g. in a DTTI object) using character strings that include wildcard characters that define multi-dimensional key ranges. Wildcard characters can designate that a single variable character is to be inserted or that a range from zero to multiple characters can be inserted. The use of wildcards can make checks for key intersection non-trivial. During run time, the key values to be accessed from one or more tables are evaluated, and the operation proceeds. An error can occur if the presence of one or more wildcards in two key value strings used in an aggregation operation result in an overlap such that a same record is included more than once.

  • Patent number: 10338972
    Abstract: A computing resource service provider may store user data in a distributed data storage system. The distributed data storage system may contain one or more storage partitions configured to store based at least in part on prefixes of keys contained in a key-value store, where the size of the keys may vary. The one or more storage partitions may track requests to access data where the requests include a key such that the data may be located by the service provider based at least in part on the key. When a request is received a counter associated with the prefix included in the request may be incremented, the counter may be configured to decay over time. If the counter exceeds a threshold the service provider may split the prefix associated with the counter and generate new partitions responsible for the split prefix.

  • Patent number: 10298470
    Abstract: A packet of data and a packet-identification value are transmitted to a network device having an identifier. The stored packet-identification value and the identifier are recorded. The stored packet-identification value is then increased and the process repeats. To receive data, an expected identification value is stored in association with the identifier. A packet and a packet-identification value are received from the network device. The identifier and an indication of receipt are stored. If the received value does not match the expected value for the identifier, the received value is stored. If the values match, the stored packet-identification value and identifier are recorded. If the received value exceeds the expected value, the stored packet-identification value, the identifier and the received identifier are recorded. Subsequently, the stored expected value is increased. The process repeats. Network devices and systems are described.
