  • Patent number: 10839406
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for performing A/B testing for search engine optimization (SEO). During operation, the system divides a set of web pages into a control group, an inbound treatment group, an outbound treatment group, and a full treatment group. Next, the system generates a first set of links from the outbound treatment group to the inbound treatment group and a second set of links within the full treatment group. The system then applies an A/B test to pairs of groups selected from the control group, the inbound treatment group, the outbound treatment group, and the full treatment group. Finally, the system outputs a result of the A/B test for use in assessing an effect of the first and second sets of links on search engine results associated with the set of web pages.

  • Publication number: 20200341103
    Abstract: Images are reconstructed from undersampled k-space data using a residual machine learning algorithm (e.g., a ResNet architecture) to estimate missing k-space lines from acquired k-space data with improved noise resilience. Using a residual machine learning algorithm provides for combining the advantages of both linear and nonlinear k-space reconstructions. The linear residual connection can implement a convolution that estimates most of the energy in k-space, and the multi-layer machine learning algorithm can be implemented with nonlinear activation functions to estimate imperfections, such as noise amplification due to coil geometry, that arise from the linear component.

  • Patent number: 10799200
    Abstract: A nuclear scanner includes an annular support structure (12) which supports a plurality of radiation detector units (14), each detector unit including crystals (52), tiles (66) containing an array of crystals, or modules (14) of tiles. The detector units define annular ranks of crystals, and the annular ranks of crystals define spaces between the ranks. In another embodiment, the crystals define axial spaces between crystals. Separate rings of crystals have axial spaces that are staggered such that no area of the imaging region is missed. The spaces between the detector units may be adjusted to form uniform or non-uniform spacing. Moving the patient through the annular support structure compensates for reduced sampling under the spaces between ranks.
