  • Publication number: 20220259746
    Abstract: A porous solid electrolyte electrosynthesis cell and corresponding related process for the direct synthesis of high purity liquid products wherein the electrosynthesis cell comprises a cathode compartment including a cathode electrode comprising a gas diffusion layer loaded with a selective reduction reaction electrocatalyst for specific reduction reactions. The electrosynthesis cell further includes an anode compartment including an anode electrode comprising a gas diffusion layer loaded with a catalyst for oxidation reactions; and a solid electrolyte compartment comprising a porous solid electrolyte; a cation exchange membrane; and an anion exchange membrane; (or two cation exchange membranes) wherein the solid electrolyte compartment is separated from the cathode and the anode by the anion exchange membrane and the cation exchange membrane (or by the two cation exchange membranes).

  • Publication number: 20210342977
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an method and apparatus for image restoration, a storage medium and a terminal. The method includes: acquiring a to-be-processed image including biometric information; inputting the to-be-processed image into a generator, wherein the generator comprises a neural network model with a plurality of convolutional layers, and a weight of a convolutional kernel of the generator is determined at least according to a quality of an image historically restored by the generator; and restoring the to-be-processed image by the generator to acquire a restored image. The present disclosure can effectively improve a restoration quality when performing image restoration based on machine learning.

  • Patent number: 10825223
    Abstract: A mixed reality system including a display and camera is configured to receive video of a physical scene from the camera and construct a 3D model of the physical scene based on the video. Spatial sensing provides pose (position and orientation) updates corresponding to a physical pose of the display. First user inputs allow a user to define an input path. The input path may be displayed as a graphic path or line. The input path is mapped to a 3D path in the 3D model. Second user inputs define animation features in association with the 3D path. Animation features include an object (e.g., a character), animation commands, etc. The animation commands may be manually mapped to points on the 3D path and executed during an animation of the object guided by the 3D path.

  • Publication number: 20080213895
    Abstract: A mass production of dendritic cells (DC) and cytokine-induced killer cells (D-CIK) cells from the umbilical cord blood or peripheral blood via the activation with a cellular activator “Koyo” derived from the purified tumor cells during the aggregation and proliferation of the purified tumor cells is provided. A preparation of a vaccine with the dendritic cells (DC) and D-CIK cells is used to improve the symptoms of infectious diseases, cancers, metastasised cancers and auto-immune disorders.
