  • Publication number: 20170090510
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses are described for deskewing between multiple lane groups of deskewed data streams. Multiple distinct and deskewed lane groups can be aligned by utilizing an inter-group synchronized set of counters. The counters supply a way to measure the time delta (counter difference) in clocks between the multiple streams. Using this delta, one or more streams can be stalled to align the multiple streams. The counter values are communicated between the multiple groups in a way that they align to set data stream markers. These fixed markers and the breaking up of the counters in relation to the periodicity of the markers allows for a robust way to compare the multiple streams and calculate an accurate time delta.

    Abstract: An input device of a secure authentication protocol system may receive at least one user authentication factor in a pre-boot session. The input device may verify the received authentication factors and may store the verified authentication factors. During a post-boot session, the input device may communicate the verified authentication factor and a stored post-boot session credential received during a prior post-boot session to an authentication engine executing in a trusted execution environment. The authentication engine verifies the received post-boot session credential is logically associated with an immediately preceding post-boot session. Upon successful verification of the received post-boot session credential, the verified authentication factors or data indicative of a successfully verified authentication factor received during the pre-boot session are used in the current post-boot session.

    Abstract: Generally, this disclosure provides systems, devices, methods and computer readable media for adaptation of language models and semantic tracking to improve automatic speech recognition (ASR). A system for recognizing phrases of speech from a conversation may include an ASR circuit configured to transcribe a user's speech to a first estimated text sequence, based on a generalized language model. The system may also include a language model matching circuit configured to analyze the first estimated text sequence to determine a context and to select a personalized language model (PLM), from a plurality of PLMs, based on that context. The ASR circuit may further be configured to re-transcribe the speech based on the selected PLM to generate a lattice of paths of estimated text sequences, wherein each of the paths of estimated text sequences comprise one or more words and an acoustic score associated with each of the words.

  • Publication number: 20170094245
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for drift correction for camera tracking. In some cases, the techniques include iterative optimization of the camera poses at selected keyframes captured along the camera trajectory to reduce pose errors. Such iterative optimization may include performing an alignment process using the point cloud of a given keyframe and a point cloud made from one or more overlapping keyframes, such as via an iterative closest point (ICP)-based expectation maximization. The keyframes may then be fused to reconstruct a more accurate model of the scene, discarding the existing model. The new model can then be used for tracking and meshing. In some instances, keyframes may be selected such that the overlap with other keyframes includes enough shape features to allow for alignment with the keyframe depth point cloud. In some cases, the techniques can be performed in a particular order giving precedence to keyframes having smaller pose errors.

  • Publication number: 20170092157
    Abstract: This disclosure is directed to a multiple input cryptographic engine. In general, an cryptographic engine consistent with the present disclosure may improve on existing systems that generate encrypted data (e.g., ciphertext) from decrypted input data (e.g., plaintext), or that conversely generate decrypted data from encrypted data, in that a second input may be received into the cryptographic engine while a first input is still being processed, allowing multiple inputs to be processed concurrently. An example device may include an input interface to receive data into the device, an output interface to output data from the device and cryptographic circuitry. The cryptographic circuitry may be configured encrypt/decrypt data received via the input interface into encrypted/decrypted data while also converting a least a portion of a second input received via the input interface into second encrypted/decrypted data. The encrypted/decrypted data may then be output via the output interface.
