  • Patent number: 11336523
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a history walker interface to a time-based data structure are disclosed. A time-based data structure may contain information about updates to a set of records that change periodically over time. For example, a set of records that record state transitions of a task item as the task item progresses through its life cycle. An example task item may be represented by a change request or incident report in a help desk software application. The task item begins with an “open” state and may transition through any number of states (e.g., assigned, on-hold, test, customer response requested, etc.) on its way to ultimately being “closed” as completed. A history walker interface may assist application developers when creating applications to indicate how the task item transitioned through its different states throughout its lifecycle.

  • Patent number: 11308101
    Abstract: An activity of interest is modeled by a non-stationary discrete stochastic process, such as a pattern of mutations across a cancer genome. Initially, input genomic data is used to train a model to predict rate parameters and their associated uncertainty estimation for each of a set of process regions. For any arbitrary set of indexed positions of the stochastic process that are identified in an information query, the rate parameters and their associated estimation uncertainties are scaled using the model to obtain a distribution of the events of interest and their associated estimation uncertainties for the set of indexed positions. In one practical application, and in response to a search query associated with one or more base-pairs, a result is then returned. The result, which represents deviations between the estimated and observed mutation rates, is used to identify genomic elements that have more mutations than expected and therefore constitute previously unknown driver mutations.

  • Patent number: 11044328
    Abstract: An approach is provided for controlling content delivery. Stream data and associated metadata are received from one or more sources. The stream data is converted into a text format. The converted stream data is processed in an artificial intelligence system to detect emotions of the stream data. The emotions of the stream data are mapped to a set of rules for a geographic area. Unacceptable content in the stream data is identified based on the emotions and the set of rules for the geographic area. Content delivery servers are notified to discard the unacceptable content so that the unacceptable content is not delivered through content distribution channels and is not viewed by an end user.
