  • Patent number: 11972335
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for automatic classification of information in an adversarial machine learning setting. For example, a learner that includes multiple classifiers may perform data classification automatically. Each classifier may be trained with adversarial data of a different strength. For a given query to be classified, the learner is configured to intelligently select a classifier that is commensurate with the adversarial strength of the data inside the query, without explicit knowledge of that data or its adversarial strength.

  • Patent number: 11907263
    Abstract: A computer measures for each column in many rows, a respective frequency of statements that filter the column in a workload of database statements, a respective count of distinct values used for filtration on the column in each statement individually, a respective frequency of each of the counts of distinct values used for filtration on the column across all of the database statements, and a respective value range of the column for each of many storage zones. A respective efficiency is measured for each of many distinct interleaved sorts. Each interleaved sort uses a respective distinct subset of the columns. Each interleaved sort is based on portions of each of the values for each row in a sampled subset of rows in each column of the subset of the columns of the interleaved sort. Efficiency measurement is based on frequencies of statements, value ranges of columns for each storage zone, and frequencies of counts of distinct values.

    Abstract: A top K query directed at a table is received. The table is organized into multiple storage units. The top K query comprises a first clause to sort a result set in order and a second clause that specifies a limit on a number of results provided in response to the query. A table scan operator identifies a first set of rows from the table based on a scan set determined for the table and provides the first set of rows to a top K operator. The top K operator determines a current boundary based on the first set of rows and provides the current boundary to the table scan operator. The table scan operator prunes the scan set based on the current boundary and identifies a second set of rows from the table based on the pruning.

  • Patent number: 11869628
    Abstract: An exemplary memory is configurable to operate in a low latency mode through use of a low latency register circuit to execute a read or write command, rather performing a memory array access to execute the read or write command. A control circuit determines whether an access command should be performed using the low latency mode of operation (e.g., first mode of operation) or a normal mode of operation (e.g., second mode of operation). In some examples, a processor unit directs the memory to execute an access command using the low latency mode of operation via one or more bits (e.g., a low latency enable bit) included in the command and address information.

The initiating can be associated with a time stamp. The server can be configured to determine a compliance with the service level agreement. The compliance can be computed as a difference between the time stamp and the creation time being less than the maximum response time. The server can be configured to generate a notification of the compliance with the service level agreement.

  • Patent number: 11321954
    Abstract: Some examples herein describe time-series recognition and analysis techniques with computer vision. In one example, a system can access an image depicting data lines representing time series datasets. The system can execute a clustering process to assign pixels in the image to pixel clusters. The system can generate image masks based on attributes of the pixel clusters, and identify a respective set of line segments defining the respective data line associated with each image mask. The system can determine pixel sets associated with the time series datasets based on the respective set of line segments associated with each image mask, and provide one or more pixel sets as input for a computing operation that processes the pixel sets and returns a processing result. The system may then display the processing result on a display device or perform another task based on the processing result.

  • Patent number: 11308277
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system includes a processor obtaining data including values and generating a value conversion dictionary by applying a parse tree based compression algorithm to the data, where the value conversion dictionary includes dictionary entries that represent the values. The processor obtains a distribution of the values and estimates a likelihood for each based on the distribution. The processor generates a code word to represent each value, a size of each code word is inversely proportional to the likelihood of the word. The processor assigns a rank to each code word, the rank for each represents the likelihood of the value represented by the code word; and based on the rank associated with each code word, the processor reorders each dictionary entry in the value conversion dictionary to associate each dictionary entry with an equivalent rank, the reordered value conversion dictionary comprises an architected dictionary.

  • Patent number: 8935249
    Abstract: A system for visualizing concepts within a collection of information analyzes a set of materials from at least one collection of information and defines an attribute space associated with the set of materials. The system then determines automatically similarity of members of the attribute space. The system then generates a graphical model of the members of the attribute space, where the generating includes generating a display of the members of the attribute space, each of the members having a respective display distance from other respective members of the attribute space reflective of the determined similarity.

  • Patent number: 8856143
    Abstract: A location classifier generates location information based on textual strings in input text. The location information defines potential geographical relevance of the input text. In determining the location information, the location classifier may receive at least one geo-relevance profile associated with at least one string in the input text, obtain a combined geo-relevance profile for the document from the at least one geo-relevance profile, and determine geographical relevance of the input text based on the combined geo-relevance profile.

  • Patent number: 8788498
    Abstract: Described is a technology for obtaining labeled sample data. Labeling guidelines are converted into binary yes/no questions regarding data samples. The questions and data samples are provided to judges who then answer the questions for each sample. The answers are input to a label assignment algorithm that associates a label with each sample based upon the answers. If the guidelines are modified and previous answers to the binary questions are maintained, at least some of the previous answers may be used in re-labeling the samples in view of the modification.
