  • Patent number: 11449380
    Abstract: A method for detecting and recovery from a soft error in a computing device is provided. In examples discussed herein, the method can be performed to detect soft errors that may occur during execution of a predefined critical instruction(s) and/or has been propagated in the computing device prior to the execution of the predefined critical instruction(s). Specifically, a software compiler may be used to embed an error detector block(s) after the predefined critical instruction(s). In this regard, the error detector block(s) can be executed after the predefined critical instruction(s) to detect the soft error. Accordingly, it may be possible to invoke a diagnosis routine to determine severity of the detected soft error and take appropriate action against the detected soft error. As such, it may be possible to protect the execution of the predefined critical instruction(s) concurrent to eliminating vulnerable voting intervals and reducing soft error detection overhead.

  • Publication number: 20220286172
    Abstract: Multi-stage distributed beamforming for distributed mosaic wireless networks is provided. Embodiments described herein present systems, devices, and methods that provide increased range, data rate, and robustness to interference and jamming. A distributed mosaic wireless network includes a transmitter, a receiver, and one or more distributed clusters of radios referred to herein as mosaics or relay mosaics. Each mosaic consists of several distributed, cooperative radio transceivers (e.g., mosaic nodes) that relay a signal sent by the transmitter towards the receiver. In some embodiments, a single-stage beamforming technique is implemented whereby the transmitter sends a signal to a first mosaic, which then relays this signal by beamforming to the receiver. In some embodiments, a multi-stage beamforming technique is implemented whereby the transmitter sends a signal to a first mosaic, which then relays this signal by beamforming to a second mosaic, which then relays this signal by beamforming to the receiver.

  • Patent number: 11436725
    Abstract: Not only is annotating medical images tedious and time consuming, but it also demands costly, specialty-oriented expertise, which is not easily accessible. To address this challenge, a new self-supervised framework is introduced: TransVW (transferable visual words), exploiting the prowess of transfer learning with convolutional neural networks and the unsupervised nature of visual word extraction with bags of visual words, resulting in an annotation-efficient solution to medical image analysis. TransVW was evaluated using NIH ChestX-ray14 to demonstrate its annotation efficiency. When compared with training from scratch and ImageNet-based transfer learning, TransVW reduces the annotation efforts by 75% and 12%, respectively, in addition to significantly accelerating the convergence speed. More importantly, TransVW sets new records: achieving the best average AUC on all 14 diseases, the best individual AUC scores on 10 diseases, and the second best individual AUC scores on 3 diseases.
