  • Patent number: 12032918
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for using artificial intelligence to select, curate, normalize, enrich, and synthesize the results of user experience (UX) tests. In some embodiments, a system identifies a set of unstructured textual elements associated with one or more UX tests. The system may configure agents using generative language model services, including a reviewing agent that reviews and edit outputs of a machine learning classification model applied to the unstructured textual elements and/or a curating agent that selects unstructured textual elements to represent themes within the user experience test classified using the machine learning classification model. The outputs may be used to enhance the scalability, function, and efficiency of applications directed at improving product designs.

    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software are disclosed herein that support enhanced code linting. In an implementation, an application hosts a content object that is the subject of one or more scripts for automating tasks. A linter obtains an initial state of the content object from the application and generates a model that reflects the object's state. The linter also performs an analysis of the code statements with respect to the model. The linter may then enable or otherwise cause one or more results of the analysis to be displayed in a user interface to a code editor used for interacting with the scripts.

  • Patent number: 11977858
    Abstract: A method performed by a platform for real-time intake capacity assessment of a project includes routing, to a service desk, a request to assess capacity for the project. In response, an electronic message is communicated with a link to a form to retrieve structured information about the project. An assessment template is populated with structured information that includes feature-level information of the project (e.g., a level-of-effort (LOE) for developing a software product). The platform can dynamically estimate a capacity measure for the project, which is then used to generate a visualization on a dashboard based on the estimate of the capacity measure. As such, the platform enables better decision-making, planning, and prioritization.

    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed herein for positioning application windows based on existing application layout and anticipated user workflows. When an existing application window and a recently launched application window are determined to be related to a workflow, and the default position of the recently launched application window is determined to overlap with the existing application window, the recently launched application window may be displayed in a non-default display region to avoid occlusion. By avoiding occlusion, the foldable device may provide a user-friendly application layout, reducing the number of times a user will move, resize, or switch between application windows in the workflow. This in turn may improve device performance and efficiency while reducing errors attributable to user input. The user-friendly layout may also enable a user to view more content at the same time, increasing productivity, reducing eye strain, facilitating operations such as cut and paste, etc.

  • Patent number: 11693641
    Abstract: A machine learning (ML) based code transformation system that transforms a source programming code developed using a source library for execution on a source platform into remediated code for execution on a target platform is disclosed. Metadata extracted from the source programming code is used to detect the source programming language, source libraries, and the source platform. The metadata also enables modularizing the source programming code based on the functionality and identifying a node from a plurality of nodes in a communication network to execute the various source code modules. A similarity map is generated mapping the source libraries to the target libraries and the source code modules that are incompatible with the target platform are identified and remediated with similar target code modules using the similarity map.

  • Patent number: 11683387
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are provided for providing zero- (permanent) byte real-time customized software to a user's client station. A user may request real-time customized software from one channel. The request may be transmitted to a server and analyzed to determine an intent for the customized software. The intent may be matched to one or more features in a feature catalog and an appropriate target output channel may be determined. A feature bundler may extract source code corresponding to the feature(s) and output channel, compile the code and transmit the customized software to the target output channel. The target output channel may execute the customized software within a container and delete the software when a deletion condition is satisfied, such as after the user finishes using the software.

  • Patent number: 11652710
    Abstract: Mechanisms for redistributing computing resources in a distributed data processing system is provided. Performance metrics are collected for processing requests associated with a computer operation for which there is an established service level agreement (SLA) having a required SLA performance metric. The performance metrics are compared to the SLA performance metric to select an SLA for which the SLA performance metric is being met. A plurality of computer simulations are executed that simulate different distributions of computing resources. Simulation results are compared to the SLA performance metric to identify one or more computer simulations whose results either meet, exceed, or are closest to the SLA performance metric of the selected SLA. A distribution of computing resources is selected based on the comparison and the computing resources are redistributed accordingly.

  • Patent number: 11593121
    Abstract: The components of a firmware that are to be executed are identified, such as firmware device drivers and SMI interrupt handlers. Performance data is also obtained for the components. An inventory identifying the components and the performance data are provided to a BMC. The BMC provides the inventory and the performance data to a remote management client through an out-of-band (“OOB”) network connection. The BMC might also receive a blacklist instruction from the management client. The blacklist instruction provides an indication to the BMC that one or more of the components of the firmware are not to be executed by the computing system. The BMC provides the blacklist instruction to the firmware. The firmware adds the component, or components, identified in the blacklist instruction to a blacklist. The next time the computing system is booted, the firmware will not execute the components identified in the blacklist.

  • Patent number: 11579586
    Abstract: A method according to the disclosure configures a processor to predict metal loss in a structure for remediation. The method uses a machine learning model, trained based upon historical data, to predict metal loss over locations of a structure at a time of the prediction. The method identifies from among the predicted locations a high-risk location on the structure in which a magnitude of metal loss indicates potential remediation being needed, dispatches a robotic vehicle to the high-risk location on the structure and inspects the high-risk location using the robotic vehicle to confirm whether the magnitude of metal loss at the location requires remediation. In further methods, remediation is performed. In still further methods, a three-dimensional visualization of the structure is generated with an overlay which depicts predicted metal loss over the sections of the structure.
