  • Patent number: 11068519
    Abstract: In implementations of the subject matter described herein, a new approach for presenting a response to a message in a conversation is proposed. Generally speaking, in response to receiving a message in a conversation, the received message will be matched with one or more documents on the sentence basis. That is, the received message is compared with the sentences from a document(s), rather than predefined query-response pairs. In this way, a whole sentence may be selected from the document as a candidate response. Then the suitability of this sentence with respect to the ongoing conversation will be determined, and the response will be generated and rendered in an adaptive way based on the suitability. As a result, the user experiences may be significantly enhanced in the chatbot scenario.

  • Patent number: 11054989
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are disclosed for selection of characters from an electronic user interface. In one embodiment, a letter selection interface displays letters in a row, some of which are recordable by an input interpreter and others that are unrecordable. In one embodiment, unrecordable letters visually separate letters that are both (1) recordable, and (2) assigned to different but adjacent selection buttons. In response to received touch-screen activations, an interpreter records recordable letter selections and a display displays both recordable and unrecordable letter selections. The interpreter composes a sequence of the recorded letters. An algorithm identifies alternatives to the recorded sequence by editing one or more letters of the sequence, such that each edit changes a selected letter to an adjacent unrecordable letter. The algorithm outputs words that match the originally composed sequence or one of the identified alternatives.

  • Patent number: 10868799
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for securing data transmission. After determining that a message is being created to be sent from a sender to a receiver, the cognitive states of the sender and receiver are measured. A set of feature vectors for the sender and receiver is generated based on the cognitive states of the sender and receiver. The feature vectors are inputted into a long short term memory network, which selects an appropriate level of encryption (encryption strength, encryption algorithm, and mode of transportation in sending the message) to encapsulate the message utilizing the generated set of feature vectors. The message is then encapsulated using the selected level of encryption. In this manner, by using an appropriate level of encryption, the message is less likely to be accessible by unauthorized users thereby reducing the likelihood of unauthorized access or loss of valuable data.

    Abstract: Examples described herein emulate a processing architecture using multiple translations of the same source binary. A first translation binary includes compiler optimizations not present in a second translation binary. During runtime, a dispatcher directs control flow of a CPU when branch instructions are reached. Specifically, a dispatcher directs a CPU to execute instructions in the first translation binary, and accesses the second translation binary when an instruction is to a target that is not addressable in the first translation binary. The first and second translation binaries enable a target processing architecture to emulate a source processing architecture without just-in-time compilation or other runtime interpretation.

  • Patent number: 10761835
    Abstract: An application includes main program code, but also a call handler and an update module. When a specific method or function in the operating system is called, the call is redirected to the call handler in the application. The call handler then calls the function in the operating system. The function retrieves an object to present in a user interface to the application. But before the object is rendered, program control is returned to the call handler, which calls into the update module. The update module determines whether or not the appearance of the object should be changed, for example, in accordance with an A/B test or any other type of update. If so, visual characteristics of the object are changed. Control reverts back to the operating system from the call handler and the object, in its changed form, is presented in the user interface.

    Abstract: Parallel linguistic corpora used to train cognitive translation systems are built from robot plans. A collection of robot plans in various languages is analyzed in candidate pairings to see if any two plans are directed to the same task. If so, verbal instructions in different languages from the two plans (such as plan names) are assumed to have the same meaning, and are stored in association as part of the bilingual corpus. If each plan has multiple steps, the corresponding steps from the two plans can also be stored in association as part of the corpus. Robot plans are modeled as finite state automata having a plurality of links representing sensory states and a plurality of nodes representing motor actions, and the determination of plan similarity is based on a comparison of the two FSAs.

  • Patent number: 10732946
    Abstract: A method for analyzing a program may include generating an initial control flow graph (CFG) for the program, identifying merge blocks of the initial CFG, identifying predecessor-merge pairs based on identifying predecessor blocks for each merge block, simulating a duplication of each predecessor-merge pair, determining whether the duplication satisfies a precondition of each of a collection of optimizations, applying, in response to satisfying the precondition, the optimization to the duplication, and generating a simulation result for the predecessor-merge pair corresponding to the duplication. The simulation result may include the optimization and a benefit of applying the optimization to the duplication. The method may further include duplicating, in the initial CFG, a predecessor-merge pair based on the simulation result corresponding to the predecessor-merge pair.

  • Patent number: 10650324
    Abstract: In some aspects, a heterogeneous computing system includes a quantum processor unit and a classical processor unit. In some instances, variables defined by a computer program are stored in a classical memory in the heterogeneous computing system. The computer program is executed in the heterogeneous computing system by operation of the quantum processor unit and the classical processor unit. Instructions are generated for the quantum processor by a host processor unit based on values of the variables stored in the classical memory. The instructions are configured to cause the quantum processor unit to perform a data processing task defined by the computer program. The values of the variables are updated in the classical memory based on output values generated by the quantum processor unit. The classical processor unit processes the updated values of the variables.

  • Patent number: 10628188
    Abstract: Techniques to facilitate prevention of just-in-time (JIT) translations of application functions are disclosed herein. In at least one implementation, a JIT translation function of an operating system is modified in memory to redirect the JIT translation function to execute alternative code when the JIT translation function is called. When the JIT translation function is called for an application function, the alternative code is executed to determine whether the application function has been modified. When the alternative code determines that the application function has been modified, the JIT translation function is prevented from translating the application function into a native machine code version. When the alternative code determines that the application function has not been modified, the JIT translation function is allowed to translate the application function into the native machine code version.

  • Patent number: 10621314
    Abstract: Techniques for easy and secure deployment of a software package from a server to a customer-controlled computing device are described. In an embodiment, a deployment engine running on a server can be used to generate a unique URL for deployment of the software package. The unique URL may include a restricted use token. The restricted use token may be generated based on a combination of a random selection of one or more dictionary words, numbers, and/or symbols. The restricted token is easily readable given the combination of dictionary words, numbers, and/or symbols that make up the restricted use token. The unique URL may then be entered into a customer-controlled computing device via a curl command. The curl command will use the unique URL to generate a secure channel to the deployment engine and automatically download the software package onto the customer-controlled computing device.

  • Patent number: 10540372
    Abstract: An operator tree is formed for a data processing plan, the operator tree containing a plurality of interconnected nodes and including a grouping of two or more duplicative portions, each of the two or more duplicative portions having identical nodes and structure such that when the operator tree is executed, operators executed in a first duplicative portion using a first thread perform same functions use different data than operators in a second duplicative portion using a second thread. One or more operators in the first portion and one or more operators in the second portion to be synchronized with each other are identified. A synchronization point is created for the identified operators in the first thread and one or more subsequent threads, wherein the synchronization point receives information from each of the identified operators to build an artifact to deliver to one or more operators that depend on the artifact.

  • Patent number: 10503603
    Abstract: In one embodiment, techniques are provided for converting data items of a source repository that maintains a CAD description according to a first storage format to data items of an output repository that maintains the CAD description according to a second storage format. A converter gathers data items of the source repository and compares current condition information for them with condition information as of a last successful conversion maintained by a synchronization information record separate from the source repository. The converter determines one or more new or changed data items in the source repository since the last successful conversion, converts new or changed data items to the second storage format of the output repository, and stores them in the output repository, while skipping any unchanged data items. The converter further updates the synchronization information record to include the current condition information for data items in the source repository.
