Publication/Patent Number: US10885047B2 Publication Date: 2021-01-05 Application Number: 15/200,028 Filing Date: 2016-07-01 Inventor: Mozes, Ari W.   Bai, Dongfang   Assignee: Oracle International Corporation   IPC: G06F17/30 Abstract: Systems, methods, and other embodiments are disclosed for performing data mining. In one embodiment, transaction records are read one at a time. Each transaction record represents a transaction for at least one item and includes an item identifier and a metric value for the item. The number-of-occurrences of at least one candidate item set in the transaction records are counted to generate a total count for the candidate item set. The candidate item set includes one or more items. As the counting proceeds, at least one aggregate metric value associated with the candidate item set is accumulated by summing metric values across the number-of-occurrences for each item represented in the candidate item set. A determination is made as to whether the candidate item set is a frequent item set in the transaction records by comparing the total count to a threshold value.

Method and apparatus for query formulation
Publication/Patent Number: US10896163B1 Publication Date: 2021-01-19 Application Number: 14/793,644 Filing Date: 2015-07-07 Inventor: Bowles, Mark Edward   Tellefsen, Jens Erik   Bhatia, Ranjeet Singh   Assignee: NetBase Solutions, Inc.   IPC: G06F17/30 Abstract: To the standard operations of an inverted index database, a new “To” operator is added. The “To” operator treats the standard single-level linear collection of records as being organized into localized clusters. Techniques for hierarchical clusters are presented. During indexing, hierarchical clusters are serialized according to a uniform visitation procedure. Serialization produces bit maps, one for each hierarchical level, that preserve the hierarchical level of each record and its location in the serialization sequence. The “To” operator accepts a list of records, each at a same hierarchical level in a cluster, and a specification of a hierarchical level that all the input records should be converted into. The “To” operator outputs a list of records, representing a conversion of the input records to the specified new level. When searching a Corpus-of-Interest for an Object-of-Interest, techniques are presented for greatly improving the process by which Exclude Terms are identified. Exclude Terms are particularly useful when the lexical units, representing an Object-of-Interest, are ambiguous. When in the mode of searching for Exclude Terms, the Object-of-Interest of interest is sought, in the Corpus-of-Interest, in a broader context than when the Exclude Terms are utilized as part of an actual query. The Object-of-Interest can match anywhere in a snippet, rather than just in the focus sentence. Using the “To” operator, the focus sentences thus found are converted into role values. Statistical sampling of the role values may be used to reduce the data for the next step of processing. The role values are subjected to frequency and cluster analysis, at the lexical unit level, in order to identify candidate Exclude Terms that a user can select. Frequency and clustering information, is presented to the user, to aid in the decision process. The search for Exclude Terms can be repeated, using the Exclude Terms located thus far.

The determination may be based at least in part on data such as images acquired from cameras onboard the tote, images acquired from cameras external to the tote, proximity sensors onboard the tote, weight sensors, and so forth. Orientation of information presented on a display device of the tote may be based on the tote placement.
