  • Patent number: 10877798
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a workflow engine executes a custom algorithm on a media item. In operation, the workflow engine generates split specifications based on a split function included in a container image. Each split specification is associated with a different portion of the media item. Subsequently, the workflow engine generates map output files based on the split specifications and a map function included in the container image. The workflow engine then generates one or more final output file(s) based on the map output files and a collect function included in the container image. The final output file(s) are subsequently used to perform at least one of an evaluation operation on, a modification operation on, and a representation operation with respect to the media item.

  • Patent number: 10867343
    Abstract: An efficient reusable, extensible light weight framework statelessly orchestrates system activities in any application which involves a series of sequential or parallel set of activities involving computational logic, data retrieval and persistence services. Actual orchestration steps and activities and computational logic are specified into configuration files, separate from the orchestration engine itself, thereby eliminating the need to code for such logic and activities. The framework can eliminate the need to code business logic and orchestration of data retrieval services by externalizing them into configuration files, resulting in lower costs to implement, test and maintain such system during its lifespan.

  • Patent number: 10754645
    Abstract: Improved techniques for asynchronously displaying the results of a codebase analysis service are provided herein. Initially, machine learning is applied to a corpus of model code. In doing so, a machine learning model is generated, where the model identifies coding practices that are included in the corpus of model code. After this model is generated, then the model is applied to a current codebase by comparing coding practices of the current codebase to the identified coding practices that were extracted, or rather identified, from the corpus of model code. Then, in response to detecting one or more differences between the current codebase's coding practices and the identified coding practices, where the differences satisfy a pre-determined difference threshold, a user interface is caused to display one or more insights. These insights beneficially provide additional detailed information describing the differences.

  • Patent number: 10614382
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining feature generation code from, which is configured to determine features relating to input data. The method further includes obtaining data grouping code, which is configured to generate training data by determining a plurality of data groupings for the features relating to the input data. The method further includes obtaining modeling code, which is derived at least in part by applying one or more machine learning algorithms to the training data. The method further includes applying a model wrapper code to the feature generation code, the data grouping code, and the modeling code to generate a model wrapper and deploying the model wrapper such that the model wrapper may receive a first application programming interface (API) call including an input data value, determine a score relating to the input data value, and send a second API call including the score in response to the first API call.

  • Patent number: 10592371
    Abstract: In a workload data, a pattern of usage of an aspect of a product is detected in a production system. The pattern is apportioned into a portion. When a test has a characterization that corresponds to the portion within a tolerance, the test is configured in a test bucket. The product is caused to be tested using the test bucket, the test bucket including a set of tests such that the set of tests collectively correspond to the pattern within the tolerance.

  • Patent number: 10572650
    Abstract: Technologies for monitoring service level agreement (SLA) performance in an end-to-end SLA monitoring architecture include a network functions virtualization (NFV) SLA controller configured to manage SLA agents initialized in various network processing components of the end-to-end SLA monitoring architecture. To do so, the NFV SLA controller is configured to provide instruction to the SLA agents indicating which types of telemetry data to monitor and receive the requested telemetry data, as securely collected and securely packaged by the SLA agents. The NFV SLA controller is further configured to securely analyze the received telemetry data to determine one or more performance metrics and compare performance benchmarks against the performance metrics to generate an SLA report that includes the results of the comparison. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10552141
    Abstract: An event-driven compute service upgrades an execution environment for registered functions of the compute service. Some compute nodes of the service have an updated version of the execution environment and some compute nodes have the old version of the execution environment. As a part of the upgrade process, some functions are executed in both environments. For example, for some invocations of a particular function, the function is executed in the updated execution environment while for other invocations of the same function, the function is executed in the old execution environment. Based on resulting status of the executions, the compute service determines that the particular function is compatible or incompatible with the updated version of the execution environment. The compute service performs subsequent executions of incompatible functions in the old version of the execution environment instead of in the updated version. A client may be notified of the incompatibility.

  • Patent number: 10540158
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus include computer programs encoded on a computer-readable storage medium, including a method for providing content. Data specifying a post-install activity is received from a provider of an application. An opportunity is identified to provide third-party content to a user. A likelihood is determined that the user will perform the specified post-install activity based on one or more attributes of the user and attributes of users that have previously performed the specified post-install activity in the application. A selection value is adjusted for third-party content that identifies the application based on the determined likelihood, wherein the selection value increases as the likelihood increases. The third-party content identifying the application is selected based on the adjusted selection value. The third-party content identifying the application is distributed to a client device of the user.

  • Patent number: 10534585
    Abstract: At an Operational Insights and Development Recommendation (OIDR) system, development artifacts from a central artifacts repository are received. At the OIDR system, statistical data from a central data analysis infrastructure is received. The statistical data is retrieved from application systems running software created from the development artifacts, and the statistical data is correlated with the development artifacts. Data insights and recommendations based on the correlated statistical data and development artifacts are provided by the OIDR system to an enhanced integrated development environment (IDE). Recommendations are derived using an analysis algorithm.

  • Patent number: 10528525
    Abstract: A method, executed by a computer, for inter-process communication in a multi-tenant environment includes creating an advertisement file for each tenant, determining that a semaphore is greater than zero, searching for a response file, and decrementing the semaphore. Detecting the response file may enable the specific tenant to establish a connection with an attachment process, and as a result, the semaphore may be reset to a value of zero. In one embodiment, a plurality of synchronization files are locked prior to incrementing the semaphore and unlocked in response to detecting the response file. Another method includes counting the targets to provide a target count, incrementing a semaphore to the target count, creating a response file, and establishing a connection with the specific target. A computer program product and computer system corresponding to the methods are also disclosed herein.
