  • Patent number: 11983750
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods that determine a likelihood that an item page represents a risky item. For example, a machine learning model may be trained to determine a probability score that an item page corresponds to a topic of a plurality of topics based on item textual descriptions determined from the item page and search queries corresponding to the item page. Still further, one or more of a topic risk score, item risk score, cumulative item risk score, and/or a total item risk score may be determined. Each of the risk scores may be indicative of a likelihood that the item page represents a risky item.

  • Patent number: 11928609
    Abstract: Aspects and features of the present disclosure can reconcile node sharing within a production rule network that is fully coded in a compiled language. As an example, the shared, stateless class can represent constraints shared by the alpha node of a rete network. Code can be post processed to create a shared stateless class defined in memory. When the rule engine is executed and the rule network is produced, the shared stateless class can be referenced to evaluate a constraint shared by a node of the production rule network, reducing the number of classes stored in memory. Garbage collection can be used within the shared stateless class, deleting objects from memory structure when no longer used, further improving storage efficiency.

  • Patent number: 11899662
    Abstract: A system and method for extending compression-aware aggregation logic to column partitioned database sources when an SQL query involves simple or complex aggregate expressions. The logic can be applied when there are multiple fields specified in a Group By clause, when a Group By clause includes an expression involving multiple columns from a column partitioned table, or when there is no Group By clause in the query. This logic extends the benefits of push-down aggregation to complex aggregate queries to build partially aggregated rows that can be directly added into an intermediate cache. For cases where the fields within aggregate expressions are themselves compressed, the aggregation techniques leverage the compression information of the aggregate fields. This aggregation mechanism can be applicable to compression techniques including run-length encoding (RLE), value list compression (VLC) and Presence, Delta on Mean (PDM) on columnar source tables such as Column Partitioned (CP) or Parquet tables.

    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: 11862346
    Abstract: A classification method and system for medical conditions based on the concept of subtypes, which are classes of patients whose medical fact patterns as analyzed in an N-dimensional space places them closer to other patients belonging to the same subtype than to patients who belong to different subtypes and, who share similar likelihood of certain specified outcomes. A computer system processes patient data for a plurality of patients from a set of patients called a cohort. The computer system processes the patient data for the cohort to group patients into sub-cohorts of similar patients, i.e., each sub-cohort includes patients who have similar medical fact patterns in their patient data. Patients in different sub-cohorts generally, but not necessarily, have significant differences in their patient data. The computer system generates quantitative definitions, describing the patients in the sub-cohorts.

  • Patent number: 11853273
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to enable a partial migration of applications from one database system to another without modifying the applications. In embodiments, a proxy server is configured to monitor the application's usage of a current database, and generate a migration plan to partially migrate database objects used by the application to a different type of database. An object may be selected for migration based on its usage level or its portability. After the partial migration, the proxy server may remain in place as a request router to route the application's requests to the two databases. In embodiments, the migration system may forward queries to both databases and compare the query results received from the two. Based on the comparison results, the migration system may programmatically determine adjustments to its query handling configuration settings.

    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods discussed herein provide improved autonomous agent applications that are configured to provide explanations in response to user-submitted questions. A user query may be received and a classification (e.g., a general question, a specific question) for the user query may be determined based at least in part on a predefined rule set (or a classification model). A set of decision features (e.g., particular user data) associated with a decision generated by a machine-learning model may be identified. An explanation chain may be identified from a plurality of explanation chains based at least in part on the user query. The explanation chain may describe a logical chain of explanations associated with a decision making process related to the machine-learning model. A response to the user query may be provided based at least in part on the explanation chain and the set of decision features.

  • Patent number: 11841878
    Abstract: In an approach for automatic vertical partitioning of fact tables in a distributed query engine a processor analyzes a sample end-user workload of queries to extract filter predicates associated with each of multiple fact tables relating to a big data store. A processor, for each fact table, and for each column in the fact table to which a filter predicate is applied and where coarsification is required, generates a candidate partitioning expression incorporating an adjustment to a coarsification function based on a data distribution of values in the column. A processor scores the candidate partitioning expressions for each fact table based on cost data relating to the sample end-user workload and selects one or more candidate partitioning expressions to optimize partitioning of each fact table with each partition data being placed in a separate directory in a distributed file system.
