  • Patent number: 12039847
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for identifying wildfire in satellite imagery. In some implementations, a server obtains a satellite image of a geographic region and a date corresponding to when the satellite image was generated. The server determines a number of pixels in the satellite image that are indicated as on fire. The server obtains satellite imagery of the geographic region from before the date. The server generates a statistical distribution from the satellite imagery. The server determines a likelihood that the satellite image illustrates fire based on a comparison of the determined number of pixels in the satellite image that are indicated as on fire to the generated statistical distribution. The server can compare the determined likelihood to a threshold. In response to comparing the determined likelihood to the threshold, the server provides an indication that the satellite image illustrates fire.

  • Patent number: 12008114
    Abstract: A machine learning computing system identifies a vulnerability associated with a server. Based on information associated with the server and a knowledge base, the computing system schedules an interval for patching the server in a centralized tracking module. Based on the knowledge base and the vulnerability, the computing system creates, validates, and deploys the patch job. During patch job execution, the computing system monitors the status of the patch job at the server and transmits status updates to a user interface module. After expiration of the interval, the computing system generates an assessment report for the executed patch job. The computing system updates the knowledge base based on the assessment report to improve future decisioning processes. Based on the success or failure of the patch job, the computing system, upon a failure indication, automatically reschedules an interval for patching the server.

  • Patent number: 11917235
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enhancing user experience in accessing media of a certain content type by outputting the media on a nearby device that is better suited for access. For example, a media guidance application may determine that a user is accessing, on his/her smartphone, a digital page (e.g., a website, a newsfeed, etc.) that features embedded content (e.g., photos, movies, music, etc.). In response to determining that the user has navigated to an embedded content, such as a video clip, the media guidance application may determine a device in the vicinity of the user that is better suited than the user's smartphone for playback of the video clip. For example, a nearby smart television may have a larger screen, better sound output, and a better display resolution than the smartphone. As a result, the media guidance application may cause the smart television to output the video clip.

  • Patent number: 11914453
    Abstract: Techniques disclosed herein relate to managing notifications to a user associated with a computing device. The notifications correspond to a response to an indication of an exception condition on the computing device. The response to the exception condition includes a plurality of steps, including computer-implemented steps in which data objects output a plurality of notifications for the user. These notifications are processed by a notification choreographer and used to prepare a unified status communication. The unified status communication is output to the user and depicts information corresponding to a plurality of the notifications.

  • Patent number: 11914578
    Abstract: In some aspects, a server may receive commands from a computing device. The commands may cause the server to create an empty xbundle comprising a context and create a set of additional empty xbundles within the context. The set of additional empty xbundles includes at least a first xbundle, a second xbundle, and a third xbundle. The commands may cause the server to connect the first xbundle to the second xbundle using the third xbundle to create a particular xbundle in which the first xbundle comprises a first vertex, the second xbundle comprises a second vertex, and the third xbundle comprises an edge connecting the first xbundle to the second xbundle. The commands may cause the server to save, in a datastore, the particular xbundle comprising the context that includes the first xbundle, the second xbundle, and the third xbundle.

  • Patent number: 11909590
    Abstract: Examples described herein relate to configuring a Network Interface Card (NIC) of a compute node, such as a server. The NIC may receive an LLDP frame with a first configuration for the NIC. The first configuration is compared with a second configuration. The second configuration corresponds to an existing configuration of the NIC. In response to determining that the second configuration does not match the first configuration, the NIC is configured with the first configuration during a boot-up of the compute node.

  • Patent number: 11907069
    Abstract: In network devices, during manufacturing, input for designation of a region code to be a non-specific region code is stored in a BIOS memory of the network device, and a specific region code is stored off the BIOS. During boot up, the BIOS is checked for a specific region code to regulate wireless transmissions at a physical location of operation. Responsive to receiving the non-specific region code from BIOS, the specific region code is requested from a region code server based on a network device identifier. Once received, the region code is stored in flash memory, until rebooted or otherwise reset, rather than BIOS.

  • Patent number: 11907708
    Abstract: An extensible platform-as-a-service (PaaS) system is used during the software development lifecycle (SDLC) processes of an application. The system, according to various embodiments, receives indications that changes are made to one or more templates or software bundles stored in a software library and coordinates how changes to a particular template will be applied to applications for an enterprise system. Specifically, the system may identify applications that are using the template and determine an ordering for a plurality of application groups that indicates a sequence in which the updates will be applied to the applications. In this manner, template updates can be automatically and systematically deployed to applications without significant involvement by users of the PaaS system.

  • Patent number: 11902111
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and techniques to facilitate rapid and effective notification of issues that may affect services and applications configured at a cloud-based system. A service monitoring system may be queried regularly for status data for services operating in a cloud-based system. The service status data received in response may be compared to previously stored service status data to identify new and changed issues. Based on the types of issues identified, urgent and/or non-urgent notifications may be generated and transmitted to the users associated with the affected service and/or other parameters using multiple communications channels. Responsive failover actions may also be implemented based on the detected issue and the impacted service.
