  • Patent number: 12033408
    Abstract: A text recognition system receives a prompt and, based on the prompt, causes a trained region encoder to determine a first region of interest of an image file. The system modifies a first image associated with the first region of interest (e.g., parsed out from the first region) to generate a data augmentation entity that includes a modified image. Using a trained instance encoder, the system generates a first set of visual instances corresponding to the first region of interest image and a second set of visual instances corresponding to the data augmentation entity. The system generates the corresponding first and second sequences. By executing a self-supervised contrastive loss function on the first and second sequences, the system automatically updates a continual knowledge distillation model of the trained region encoder. The system provides the first sequence to an instance decoder to generate output text in response to the prompt.

  • Patent number: 11561709
    Abstract: Dynamic configuration of backups of production volumes based on desired recovery objectives is provided. A system may obtain a recovery point objective (“RPO”) for a particular production volume. The system may initially back up data, written to the production volume, to a storage volume with certain performance parameters. However, if the write operations to the production volume occur at a high enough rate and/or affect a large enough amount of data, there may be a lag in writing that data to the backup volume. The system may monitor the lag with respect to the specified RPO for backup of the production volume. If the lag approaches the RPO, then the system may dynamically change the configuration of the backup volume to better satisfy the RPO.

  • Patent number: 11531707
    Abstract: A system stores resources such as text articles, videos, and so forth for an organization. During operation, the system receives a query and provides a response. During initial use of the system, there is little or no historical data available to help determine which resource is most relevant to a particular query. In this “cold-start” situation, the system determines attributes associated with a user account of the user making the query. The query is used to search a data store and retrieve a set of resources based on a term match with the query and to find the resources which correspond to the attributes of the user account. This allows the system to provide simplified output that is more likely to be relevant to that particular user in the “cold-start” situation.

  • Patent number: 11461689
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for systems and methods for learning the behavior of and/or for performing automated testing of a system under test (SUT). The learning/testing is accomplished solely via the graphical user interface (GUI) of the SUT and requires no a priori metadata/knowledge about the GUI objects. The learning engine operates by performing actions on the GUI and by observing the results of these actions. If the actions result in a change in the screen/page of the GUI then a screenshot is taken for further processing. Objects are detected from the screenshot, new actions that need to be performed on the objects are guessed, those actions are performed, the results are observed and the process repeats. Text labels on the screens are also read and are used for generating contextualized inputs for the screens. The learning process continues until any predetermined learning/testing criteria are satisfied.
