  • Patent number: 12013859
    Abstract: Implementations are described herein for aggregating information responsive to a query from multiple different data feed services using machine learning. In various implementations, NLP may be performed on a natural language input comprising a query for information to generate a data feed-agnostic aggregator embedding (FAAE). A plurality of data feed services may be selected, each having its own data feed service action space that includes actions that are performable to access data via the data feed service. The FAAE may be processed based on domain-specific machine learning models corresponding to the selected data feed services. Each domain-specific machine learning model may translate between a respective data feed service action space and a data feed-agnostic semantic embedding space. Using these models, action(s) may be selected from the data feed service action spaces and performed to aggregate, from the plurality of data feed services, data that is responsive to the query.

  • Patent number: 12007519
    Abstract: This disclosure describes a system and method for generating a subsurface model representing lithological characteristics and attributes of the subsurface of a celestial body or planet. By automatically ingesting data from many sources, a machine learning system can infer information about the characteristics of regions of the subsurface and build a model representing the subsurface rock properties. In some cases, this can provide information about a region using inferred data, where no direct measurements have been taken. Remote sensing data, such as aerial or satellite imagery, gravimetric data, magnetic field data, electromagnetic data, and other information can be readily collected or is already available at scale.

  • Publication number: 20240176943
    Abstract: The technology involves the auto-creation of custom standard cells. The process may include receiving specifications for implementing a set of functionalities in an integrated circuit to be fabricated. From this, the system identifies which cells are required to implement the set of functionalities. The identified cells are evaluated against a standard cell library stored in memory to determine which of the cells are not in the standard cell library. The system automatically creates the cells that are not in the standard cell library. The system can then utilize the automatically created cells to fabricate the integrated circuit. Benefits of such an approach include reduced design, development time and improved design quality of results. The resulting new cells may have fewer transistors, less area/power and improved performance than a standard cell from a preexisting library, especially since such standard cells would not necessarily be configurable to perform the desired functions.

  • Patent number: 11983554
    Abstract: Disclosed implementations relate to automating semantically-similar computing tasks across multiple contexts. In various implementations, an initial natural language input and a first plurality of actions performed using a first computer application may be used to generate a first task embedding and a first action embedding in action embedding space. An association between the first task embedding and first action embedding may be stored. Later, subsequent natural language input may be used to generate a second task embedding that is then matched to the first task embedding. Based on the stored association, the first action embedding may be identified and processed using a selected domain model to select actions to be performed using a second computer application. The selected domain model may be trained to translate between an action space of the second computer application and the action embedding space.
