  • Publication number: 20190205431
    Abstract: Examples of techniques for constructing, evaluating, and improving a search string for retrieving images are disclosed. In one example implementation according to aspects of the present disclosure, a computer-implemented method includes receiving, by a processing device, a plurality of images as search results returned based at least in part on a search string for an item in the form of a tuple including an item class, an action and an actor. The method further includes determining, by the processing device, whether the search string is effective at indicating a common item use based on image similarity. The method further includes, based at least in part on determining that the search string is ineffective at indicating the item use, generating, by the processing device, an alternative search string.

    Abstract: Examples of techniques for constructing, evaluating, and improving a search string for retrieving images are disclosed. In one example implementation according to aspects of the present disclosure, a computer-implemented method includes receiving, by a processing device, a plurality of images returned as results to an executed search string in the form of a tuple including an item class, an action and an actor. The method further includes generating, by the processing device, a collection similarity score by comparing at least one of the plurality of images to at least one other of the plurality of images. The method further includes determining, by the processing device, whether the collection similarity score exceeds a collection threshold. The method further includes, based at least in part on determining that the similarity score does not exceed the collection threshold, indicating that the search string is ineffective at indicating the item use.

  • Patent number: 10324777
    Abstract: An example device may include processing circuitry and a management controller. The processing circuitry may include a communications interface that includes a first register and a second register. The first register may include a freshness bit and a number of first data bits. The second register may include a number of second data bits that correspond, respectively, to the first data bits. The processing circuitry may write variously to the first data bits in response to detected events, set the freshness bit in response to the management controller reading the first data bits, and reset the freshness bit if any of the first data bits are written to. The management controller may read the first data bits, perform predetermined processing based thereon, write to the second data bits based on the predetermined processing, and request a register transfer.

  • Publication number: 20190153592
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention contemplate a shadow ring that provides increased or decreased and more uniform deposition on the edge of a wafer. By removing material from the top and/or bottom surfaces of the shadow ring, increased edge deposition and bevel coverage can be realized. In one embodiment, the material on the bottom surface is reduced by providing a recessed slot on the bottom surface. By increasing the amount of material of the shadow ring, the edge deposition and bevel coverage is reduced. Another approach to adjusting the deposition at the edge of the wafer includes increasing or decreasing the inner diameter of the shadow ring. The material forming the shadow ring may also be varied to change the amount of deposition at the edge of the wafer.

  • Publication number: 20190134786
    Abstract: Tools for installing network hardware in server racks may self-adhere to a server rack, alleviating the need for cap screws to attach the tool to the rack. The tool also may support the weight and aid alignment of the network hardware in a rack unit during installation. In some embodiments, the tool may include one or more spring-loaded locks adapted to couple to corresponding holes in the rack. The network device may rest atop the tool so that the network device is properly aligned for installation in the rack unit above the tool. In operation, a technician may couple one or more tools to the rack in the slot below the intended rack unit for the network device to provide hands-free support of the weight of the network device. The technician may then use both hands to screw the network device to the rack.

  • Publication number: 20180269089
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosure relate to methods for measuring temperature and a tool for calibrating temperature control of a substrate support in a processing chamber without contact with a surface of the substrate support. In one embodiment, a test fixture with a temperature sensor is removably mounted to an upper surface of a chamber body of the processing chamber such that the temperature sensor has a field of view including an area of the substrate support that is adjacent to a resistive coil disposed in the substrate support. One or more calibration temperature measurements of the area of the substrate support are taken by the temperature sensor and simultaneously one or more calibration resistance measurements of the resistive coil are taken corresponding to each calibration temperature measurement. Temperature control of a heating element disposed in the substrate support is calibrated based on the calibration temperature and calibration resistance measurements.

  • Publication number: 20180250134
    Abstract: A prosthesis may have an articulating component formed via casting and a 3D printed bone anchoring component with a joint-facing side and a bone-facing side. The bone-facing side may have a bone engagement surface with a porous structure with pores selected to facilitate in-growth of the bone into the pores. The bone facing side may further have a surface layer of Titanium Dioxide nanotubes. The joint-facing side may be secured to the articulating component by melting Titanium nanoparticles at a temperature below the melting temperatures of the major constituents of the articulating component and/or the bone anchoring component, such as Cobalt, Chromium, and/or Titanium, so as to avoid significantly modifying the crystalline structures of the articulating component and/or the bone anchoring component. The melting temperature of the Titanium nanoparticles may be about 500° C.

  • Publication number: 20180239507
    Abstract: Methods and systems for compact presentation of automatically summarized information according to rule-based graphically represented information. One of the methods includes obtaining, via a user accessible user interface, a request for uploaded textual information to be analyzed. Ontology information is accessed based on an indicated type associated with the textual information, and ontology information for the type. The ontology information specifies nodes, with the nodes causing the server system to extract values for textual expressions defined by the nodes, and relational information between the nodes, with the relational information indicating links between textual expressions. The textual information is parsed based on the ontology information. The parsing causes traversal of the nodes and extraction of values from associated textual expressions based on the textual information. Values are obtained based on the parsing, with the values being utilized as summary information.
