  • Publication number: 20220399032
    Abstract: Methods and systems for identifying human activity in a building. An illustrative method includes storing one or more room sound profiles for a room in a building based at least in part on background audio captured in the room without a presence of humans in the room. Background noise filters are generated for the room based on the room sound profiles. Real time audio may be captured from the room and filtered with at least one of the background noise filters. The filtered real time audio may be analyzed to identify one or more sounds associated with human activity in the room. A situation report may be generated based at least in part on the identified one or more sounds associated with human activity in the room and transmitted for use by a user.

  • Patent number: 11520743
    Abstract: A database server stores compressed units in data blocks of a database. A table (or data from a plurality of rows thereof) is first compressed into a “compression unit” using any of a wide variety of compression techniques. The compression unit is then stored in one or more data block rows across one or more data blocks. As a result, a single data block row may comprise compressed data for a plurality of table rows, as encoded within the compression unit. Storage of compression units in data blocks maintains compatibility with existing data block-based databases, thus allowing the use of compression units in preexisting databases without modification to the underlying format of the database. The compression units may, for example, co-exist with uncompressed tables. Various techniques allow a database server to optimize access to data in the compression unit, so that the compression is virtually transparent to the user.

  • Publication number: 20220338303
    Abstract: Methods and systems for monitoring blockages of emergency escape routes and emergency exits of a building include capturing a plurality of images which may correspond to an emergency escape route and/or an emergency exit of a building. The plurality of images may be analyzed to determine when a stationary object is present and at least partially blocking the emergency escape route and/or the emergency exit. If a blockage is detected, a user may be notified of the blockage.

  • Patent number: 11449403
    Abstract: A method and system for detecting faults in a communication interface is disclosed. The communication interface is connected to a field device and a device bus comprising generating periodic diagnostic pulse by a programing unit. The programming unit is communicatively connected to the controller and a controller interface and provides the diagnostic pulse to a multiplexer to periodically apply the diagnostic pulses from the programming unit to a first winding of a transformer. The programming unit provides the diagnostic pulse to the isolation unit. A sensing unit senses a voltage drop across a sense resistor, the sensing unit having an input connected to the sense resistor and an output connected to the programming unit. The sensing unit communicates a sense signal based on the comparison to the programming unit, and switches from a primary or a secondary module to the other based on the sense signal.

  • Publication number: 20220284293
    Abstract: Small and compact Deep Learning models are required for embedded Al in several domains. In many industrial use-cases, there are requirements to transform already trained models to ensemble embedded systems or re-train those for a given deployment scenario, with limited data for transfer learning. Moreover, the hardware platforms used in embedded application include FPGAs, AI hardware accelerators, System-on-Chips and on-premises computing elements (Fog/Network Edge). These are interconnected through heterogenous bus/network with different capacities. Method of the present disclosure finds how to automatically partition a given DNN into ensemble devices, considering the effect of accuracy—latency power—tradeoff, due to intermediate compression and effect of quantization due to conversion to AI accelerator SDKs.

  • Publication number: 20220100708
    Abstract: A file system may include an object storage, a merged index, and a distributed database. When a file is stored in the file system, the file may be converted to an object and be stored in the object storage. The deduplication index of the file may be stored in the distributed database. The namespace metadata of the file may be stored in the merged index. The merged index generates namespace entries of the file when the file is created, deleted, and/or modified. A namespace entry may be associated with a specific file and may include a creation version and a deletion version. When a file is deleted or modified, instead of modifying the existing namespace entries, new entries associated with different versions and including different creation or deletion versions are created. The status of a file may be monitored by one or more entries associated with a file.

  • Patent number: 11200634
    Abstract: A vehicle computer includes a watermark memory and a watermark processor programmed to execute instructions stored in the watermark memory. The instructions executed by the watermark processor include receiving an image captured by a camera, selecting a set of random pixel locations, generating a random watermark, and embedding the random watermark into the image at the set of random pixel locations. Another vehicle computer includes a validation memory and a validation processor programmed to execute instructions stored in the validation memory. The instructions executed by the validation processor include receiving a watermarked image, determining a random watermark, detecting an embedded watermark in the received watermarked image by selecting a set of random pixels and analyzing the selected set of random pixels for the random watermark, and authenticating the watermarked image as a result of determining that the watermarked image includes the random watermark at the set of random pixel locations.
