    determine a first probability that the first candidate substring corresponds to a first actionable command and a second probability that the second candidate sub string corresponds to a second actionable command;

    in response to the first probability and the second probability exceeding a threshold, determine a first intent associated with the first candidate substring and a second intent associated with the second candidate substring;

    execute a first process identified by the first intent and a second process identified by the second intent; and
