A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20240022483A1) describes a computer-implemented event assignment method that involves mapping a network consisting of multiple islands that can dynamically change through splitting and merging. These islands are made up of individual components, and the method includes predicting, detecting, and localizing local events at both the individual component level and the island level using a disaggregation model.

The patent claims to offer a novel approach to event assignment in complex networks by considering the dynamic nature of the islands within the network. By utilizing a disaggregation model, the method aims to provide more accurate predictions and detections of local events, enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of event assignment processes. This innovation could have significant implications for various industries that rely on network monitoring and event management systems, potentially improving the ability to respond to and address events in a timely and precise manner.
