  • Patent number: 10785497
    Abstract: In accordance with a first aspect, the intra prediction direction of a neighboring, intra-predicted block is used in order to predict the extension direction of the wedgelet separation line of a current block, thereby reducing the side information rate necessitated in order to convey the partitioning information. In accordance with a second aspect, the idea is that previously reconstructed samples, i.e. reconstructed values of blocks preceding the current block in accordance with the coding/decoding order allow for at least a prediction of a correct placement of a starting point of the wedgelet separation line, namely by placing the starting point of the wedgelet separation line at a position of a maximum change between consecutive ones of a sequence of reconstructed values of samples of a line of samples extending adjacent to the current block along a circumference thereof. Both aspects may be used individually or in combination.

  • Publication number: 20200286595
    Abstract: Approaches, techniques, and mechanisms are disclosed for predicting molecular electronic structural information. According to one embodiment, quantum simulation results are generated for a molecule based on a quantum simulation of an electronic structure of the molecule. The quantum simulation of the electronic structure of the molecule is performed with quantum processing units. An input vector comprising data field values derived from the quantum simulation results for the molecule is created. An electronic structural information prediction model is applied to generate, based at least in part on the input vector, predicted electronic structural information for the molecule.

  • Patent number: 10771793
    Abstract: The way of predicting a current block by assigning constant partition values to the partitions of a bi-partitioning of a block is quite effective, especially in case of coding sample arrays such as depth/disparity maps where the content of these sample arrays is mostly composed of plateaus or simple connected regions of similar value separated from each other by steep edges. The transmission of such constant partition values would, however, still need a considerable amount of side information which should be avoided. This side information rate may be further reduced if mean values of values of neighboring samples associated or adjoining the respective partitions are used as predictors for the constant partition values.

  • Patent number: 10771794
    Abstract: Although wedgelet-based partitioning seems to represent a better tradeoff between side information rate on the one hand and achievable variety in partitioning possibilities on the other hand, compared to contour partitioning, the ability to alleviate the constraints of the partitioning to the extent that the partitions have to be wedgelet partitions, enables applying relatively uncomplex statistical analysis onto overlaid spatially sampled texture information in order to derive a good predictor for the bi-segmentation in a depth/disparity map. Thus, in accordance with a first aspect it is exactly the increase of the freedom which alleviates the signaling overhead provided that co-located texture information in form of a picture is present. Another aspect pertains the possibility to save side information rate involved with signaling a respective coding mode supporting irregular partitioning.

  • Patent number: 10769117
    Abstract: A method for handling snapshots together with migrated files in a hierarchical storage management may be provided. The method comprises managing files using a first-tier storage and a second-tier storage. The files are organized in a managed file system—e.g., a hierarchically managed file system—in the first-tier storage. The method comprises further creating a snapshot of a portion of the files of the first-tier storage, thereby creating a hidden directory in the file system, deleting a migrated file, and moving the stub file relating to the file to be deleted in the first-tier storage to the hidden directory.

  • Publication number: 20200276644
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing open-pore molded metal bodies which have a modified surface. The surface of an open-pore molded metal body said molded body being used as a semi-finished product, is coated with particles of a chemical compound of a metal on particles of the metal which can be reduced or thermally or chemically decomposed in a thermal treatment. After the coating process, at least one thermal treatment is carried out, in which the produced metal particles are connected to the surface of the semi-finished product and/or adjacent produced particles via sintered necks or sintered bridges such that the specific surface area of the obtained open-pore molded body is increased to at least 30 m2/l and/or at least by a factor of 5 in comparison to the starting material of the uncoated metal semi-finished product.

  • Patent number: 10764839
    Abstract: A method performed by a network node for managing power of Cell Reference Symbols, CRS, wherein the network node operates one or more cells and the network node is configured to transmit the CRS in a first power mode. When the network node identifies a first cell which is not actively serving any UEs, which cell is also referred to as an empty cell, the network node reduces the power of the CRS in the first cell in relation to the first power mode. By reducing the power of the CRS, the overall interference of the CRS from the empty cell is reduced, thereby enhancing the performance in cells actively serving UEs.
