  • Patent number: 11003910
    Abstract: A first and second scoring endpoint with payload logging are deployed. At the second scoring endpoint, native data and a user-generated score for the native data are received, the native data is pre-processed into readable data for the deep-learning model, and the user-generated score and the readable data are output to the first scoring endpoint, which is associated directly with the deep-learning model. A raw payload that includes the native data is output to a payload store. At the first scoring endpoint, the readable data and the user-generated score are processed by the deep-learning model, which outputs a transformed payload and a prediction, respectively, to the payload store. The raw payload is matched with the transformed payload and the prediction to produce a comprehensive data set, which is evaluated to describe a set of transformation parameters. The deep-learning model is retrained to account for the set of transformation parameters.

  • Patent number: 10984145
    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed that, in an embodiment, receive first input from a user of a candidate formulation recipe, and second input from the user of target properties and target property constraints. The system inputs the first input into a machine learning model, the model having been trained using historical training data, each element of the historical training data corresponding to a known formulation having a known feature representation, each known formulation having associated properties and statistical representations of each feature of the known formulation that form the known feature representation. The system receives as output from the model a predicted property of a candidate formulation derived using the first input and the likelihood that the candidate formulation satisfies the target property constraints using the second input.

  • Patent number: 10970816
    Abstract: A neural network structure, namely a warped external recurrent neural network, is disclosed for reconstructing images with synthesized effects. The effects can include motion blur, depth of field reconstruction (e.g., simulating lens effects), and/or anti-aliasing (e.g., removing artifacts caused by sampling frequency). The warped external recurrent neural network is not recurrent at each layer inside the neural network. Instead, the external state output by the final layer of the neural network is warped and provided as a portion of the input to the neural network for the next image in a sequence of images. In contrast, in a conventional recurrent neural network, hidden state generated at each layer is provided as a feedback input to the generating layer. The neural network can be implemented, at least in part, on a processor. In an embodiment, the neural network is implemented on at least one parallel processing unit.
