  • Publication number: 20220114644
    Abstract: A recommendation system includes a recommendation model for generating a recommendation score for a user with respect to an item. The model is configured to receive a set of dense features, describing numerical information, and a set of sparse features, representing a subset of items from a relatively large group of items. To represent the subset of items in the sparse features, each item (or a symbol thereof) is processed by an encoder to represent each item with a plurality of positions in a sparse binary representation of the subset of items. The sparse binary representation is then processed by a model that determines a vector representation of the sparse category features used in the prediction in conjunction with the dense features.

  • Publication number: 20220092725
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for implementing register compaction with early release are disclosed. A processor includes at least a command processor, a plurality of compute units, a plurality of registers, and a control unit. Registers are statically allocated to wavefronts by the control unit when wavefronts are launched by the command processor on the compute units. In response to determining that a first set of registers, previously allocated to a first wavefront, are no longer needed, the first wavefront executes an instruction to release the first set of registers. The control unit detects the executed instruction and releases the first set of registers to the available pool of registers to potentially be used by other wavefronts. Then, the control unit can allocate the first set of registers to a second wavefront for use by threads of the second wavefront while the first wavefront is still active.

  • Patent number: 11268783
    Abstract: An airgun has a high pressure reservoir for providing a pressurized motive gas to a breech to fire a projectile. A regulator is intermediate the high pressure reservoir and a downstream firing pressure reservoir for providing a consistent regulated pressure of the motive gas in the firing pressure reservoir. The airgun includes a bypass line for selectively connecting the high pressure reservoir to the firing pressure reservoir, independently of the regulator. Thus, an operator can select a firing of the airgun with either a regulated gas pressure in the firing reservoir or the pressure of the high pressure reservoir.

  • Patent number: 11265144
    Abstract: Aspects of the invention include receiving, by a processor, an unencrypted object that includes plaintext and metadata that describes the plaintext. A data encryption key (DEK) and a nonce key for the unencrypted object are obtained by the processor. The nonce key is different than the DEK. The unencrypted object is encrypted by the processor. The encrypting includes generating a nonce based at least in part of the plaintext and the nonce key. The encrypting also includes generating ciphertext and a metadata authentication tag that includes a signature of the metadata. The generating is based at least in part on the plaintext, the metadata, the DEK, and the nonce. An encrypted object that includes the ciphertext, the metadata, and the metadata authentication tag is created.
