  • Patent number: 11463517
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein perform computer vision (CV) model training in a distributed edge network. Regional Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) clusters are provided with a local copy of a CV model and a local synthetic training data generator. A MEC cluster receives client data requiring computer vision and applies the local copy of the CV model to the client data. The MEC cluster detects an exception to the local copy of the CV model and generates local synthetic training data for the exception. The MEC cluster updates, based on the local synthetic training data, the local copy of the CV model to form an updated local CV model. The MEC cluster sends the local synthetic training data and the updated local CV model to a central network. The central network uses the local synthetic training data to update a master CV model and any other interconnected CV models.

  • Patent number: 11445509
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Generally, the described techniques allow a channel engineering device (CED) to identify a suitable configuration for deflecting downlink transmissions from a base station to a user equipment (UE). The base station may transmit control signaling to the CED indicating multiple configurations for deflecting downlink reference signals from the base station. The base station may then transmit the downlink reference signals to the CED, and the CED may deflect the downlink reference signals using the indicated configurations. The UE may receive the downlink reference signals from the base station via the CED, and the UE may perform measurements on the downlink reference signals. The UE may then report the measurements to the base station, and the base station may indicate a configuration for the CED to use to deflect subsequent transmissions from the base station to the UE based on the measurements.
