  • Patent number: 10922613
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for generating a solution to an optimization problem. A received structured set of data is analyzed with the prescriptive domains to identify one or more prescriptive domains that match the received structure set of data in data structure and/or semantic terms. A user selection of one of the presented possible prescriptive intentions from the intention templates in the identified one or more prescriptive domains that match the received structure set of data in data structure and/or semantic terms is received. A prescriptive model is then generated from the prescriptive domain containing the selected prescriptive intention. The prescriptive model is translated into a technical prescriptive model using a set of mapping rules. Furthermore, the technical prescriptive model is translated into an optimization model. The optimization model is solved and an output defining a solution from the solved optimization model is presented.

  • Patent number: 10748060
    Abstract: A processor or integrated circuit includes a memory to store weight values for a plurality neuromorphic states and a circuitry coupled to the memory. The circuitry is to detect an incoming data signal for a pre-synaptic neuromorphic state and initiate a time window for the pre-synaptic neuromorphic state in response to detecting the incoming data signal. The circuitry is further to, responsive to detecting an end of the time window: retrieve, from the memory, a weight value for a post-synaptic neuromorphic state for which an outgoing data signal is generated during the time window, the post-synaptic neuromorphic state being a fan-out connection of the pre-synaptic neuromorphic state; perform a causal update to the weight value, according to a learning function, to generate an updated weight value; and store the updated weight value back to the memory.

  • Patent number: 10740690
    Abstract: An online system predicts topics for content items. The online system provides one or more topic labels for a user to apply concurrently while a user is composing a post, in response to requests periodically received from the user's device. A request includes information such as content composed by the user and contextual information. The online system employs machine learning techniques to analyze content composed by a user and contextual information thereby to predict topic labels. Different machine learning models for classifying individual topic labels, identifying relevant topic labels, and/or detecting changes in existing topic predictions are developed. Some machine learning models predict topics for full content and some predict topics for partial content. The online system trains the machine learning models to ensure accurate topic predictions are provided timely. The online system employs various machine learning model training methods such as active training and gradient training.

  • Patent number: 10592824
    Abstract: A calculation formula learning unit sets a coefficient relating to a time lag element in a thermal displacement estimation calculation formula by machine learning while fixing a coefficient relating to measured data except the coefficient relating to the time lag element at a predetermined value based on a difference between a thermal displacement estimated value about a machine element calculated by substituting a measured data group into the thermal displacement estimation calculation formula and a thermal displacement actual measured value about the machine element; sets the coefficient relating to the measured data except the coefficient relating to the time lag element in the thermal displacement estimation calculation formula by machine learning based on the difference while fixing the coefficient relating to the time lag element at a predetermined value; and repeats the machine learning.

  • Patent number: 10521717
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for representation of weight values in an artificial neural network using inter-group indexing may include, in an artificial neural network that includes neurons and synaptic connections between the neurons with each of the synaptic connections including a weight, arranging the weights in ascending order. The method may also include dividing the arranged weights into groups based on approximately linear patterns of the weights. The method may further include designating a base group and the other groups as dependent groups. The method may also include storing in memory values of the weights in the base group. The method may further include storing in the memory a group index for each of the dependent groups. The method may also include storing in the memory an index for each of the weights in the dependent groups corresponding to one of the weights in the base group without storing in the memory values of the weights in the dependent groups.
