  • Publication number: 20230027476
    Abstract: There is provided mechanisms for adaptive cell-shaping in a cellular network in which a group of radio access network nodes provide network access. A method is performed by a network node. The method comprises obtaining an indication of combined network performance degradation in a region in which a first radio access network node in the group of radio access network nodes provides network access and increased need for network access for prioritized service and/or prioritized subscribers in this region. The method comprises initiating adjustment of cell-degradation shaping parameters of at least one radio access network node in the group of radio access network nodes. Network access for the prioritized service and/or prioritized subscribers in the region is maintained by this at least one radio access network node in the group of radio access network nodes.

  • Patent number: 11481121
    Abstract: An indirection mapping data structure can maintain a mapping between logical block addresses used by a host computer and physical data storage locations on a solid state drive. Changes to the indirection mapping data structure can be stored in journals. When a journal is full, the journal can be stored to a predetermined location on the cluster block determined based on the number of entries stored by the journal, leading to a number of journals scattered throughout the cluster block at predetermined locations. Each physical chunk of media, whether written with data or marked as defective is journaled. Such a journaling scheme, where the journal locations are predetermined and each physical chunk of media is journaled is referred to as physical media-aware spatially coupled journaling. During replay the spatially coupled journals can be retrieved from the predefined locations within cluster blocks and used to rebuild the indirection mapping data structure.

  • Patent number: 11472685
    Abstract: Systems and methods for platform occupancy detection on an aerial device are described. An aerial platform may be provided for the aerial device. A worker may perform operations in the aerial platform and connect to an interlock system thereof. The worker may have an associated transmitter configured to transmit a signal. A first receiver and a second receiver may be disposed on the aerial platform to receive the signal. Based on the time difference between receiving the signal at the first receiver and receiving the signal at the second receiver, the position of the transmitter may be triangulated. If the transmitter is determined to be within the aerial platform and the worker is not connected to the interlock system, preventive actions may be taken before operation of the aerial platform is permitted.

  • Patent number: 11443240
    Abstract: Herein are techniques for domain adaptation of a machine learning (ML) model. These techniques impose differential privacy onto federated learning by the ML model. In an embodiment, each of many client devices receive, from a server, coefficients of a general ML model. For respective new data point(s), each client device operates as follows. Based on the new data point(s), a respective private ML model is trained. Based on the new data point(s), respective gradients are calculated for the coefficients of the general ML model. Random noise is added to the gradients to generate respective noisy gradients. A combined inference may be generated based on: the private ML model, the general ML model, and one of the new data point(s). The noisy gradients are sent to the server. The server adjusts the general ML model based on the noisy gradients from the client devices. This client/server process may be repeated indefinitely.

  • Patent number: 11079156
    Abstract: An ice bagger is provided. The ice bagger includes an ice hopper into which ice is disposed from an ice manufacturer. The ice hopper further includes an ice agitator. The ice hopper defines an ice trough positioned beneath the ice hopper. An ice auger is housed inside the ice trough. The ice auger transports ice to an ice delivery chute. A hatch is positioned beneath the ice delivery chute, upon which the bag rests while filling. The ice delivery chute and the hatch define a bag filling area such that, when bags are present in the bag filling area, the bags are positioned to be filled. A scale is positioned on the hatch. The scale weighs the ice being deposited into the bag. When the bag is full, the bag is sealed by a sealer. When the bag is sealed, the hatch opens and the bag of ice is deposited in an bag depository. This Abstract is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims.

  • Patent number: 10990763
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed to improve a topic modeling system that tunes a topic model for a set of topics from a corpus of documents, by allowing users to pre-inform the tuning process with bias parameters for desired associations in the topic model. In embodiments, the topic model may be a Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) model. In embodiments, the bias parameter may indicate a fixed association where a particular word in a particular document is associated with a particular topic. In embodiments, the bias parameter may specify a weight value that biases the inference process with regard to a particular association. Advantageously, the disclosed features allow users to specify a small number of parameters to steer the tuning process towards a set of desired topics. As a result, the topic model may be generated more quickly and with more useful topics.
