  • Publication number: 20200301865
    Abstract: A computing system framework and method for configuration thereof are provided. A plurality of processing modules are accessed. Each processing module includes a plurality of processing nodes and each processing node is associated with an intra-module port and an inter-module port. A plurality of intra-module networks are formed. Each intra-module network includes connections between at least a portion of the processing nodes in one of the processing modules via the associated intra-module ports. An enclosed shape of the processing modules is formed by connecting at one inter-module port on each processing module to one inter-module port on an adjacent processing modules. A cable is linked between one of the inter-module ports of one processing module of the enclosed shape to an inter-module port of another processing module of a different group of interconnected processing modules.

  • Patent number: 10678730
    Abstract: A computing system framework and method for configuration thereof are provided. A plurality of processing modules is accessed. Each processing module includes a plurality of processing nodes and each processing node is associated with an intramodule port and an intermodule port. The processing modules are connected in a ring via intermodule connections between at least a portion of the intermodule ports of the processing modules. A network switch is arranged in a center of the ring of processing modules and connections are formed between the network switch and at least one of the processing modules by connecting every Sth processing module to the network switch, connecting every Sth and Sth?1 processing modules to the network switch, or by connecting every Sth and Sth?r processing modules to the network switch. S is a number of steps between the processing modules.

  • Patent number: 10611871
    Abstract: The invention provides a composition comprising: (a) a star polymer comprising: (i) a core portion comprising a polyvalent (meth) acrylic monomer, oligomer or polymer thereof or a polyvalent divinyl non-acrylic monomer, oligomer or polymer thereof; and (ii) at least two arms of polymerized alkyl (meth)acrylate ester; and (b) an oil of lubricating viscosity, wherein the core portion further comprises a functional group of formula (I): —CH2—C(R1)(C(?O)A)-Y—??(I) wherein R1 is hydrogen, a linear or branched alkyl group containing 1 to 5 carbon atoms; A is nitrogen or oxygen; and Y is a free radical leaving group selected from the group consisting of one or more atoms or groups of atoms which may be transferred by a radical mechanism under the polymerisation conditions, a halogen, an —O—N? group and an —S—C(?S)— group. The invention further provides the use of the composition in an oil of lubricating viscosity as a dispersant, a viscosity modifier or a precursor to a dispersant viscosity modifier.

  • Patent number: 10592611
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a system for automatically extracting conversational structure from a voice record based on lexical and acoustic features. The system also aggregates business-relevant statistics and entities from a collection of spoken conversations. The system may infer a coarse-level conversational structure based on fine-level activities identified from extracted acoustic features. The system improves significantly over previous systems by extracting structure based on lexical and acoustic features. This enables extracting conversational structure on a larger scale and finer level of detail than previous systems, and can feed an analytics and business intelligence platform, e.g. for customer service phone calls. During operation, the system obtains a voice record. The system then extracts a lexical feature using automatic speech recognition (ASR). The system extracts an acoustic feature.

  • Patent number: 10535901
    Abstract: The invention provides an electrolyte composition which is adapted for use in a rechargeable alkaline electrochemical cell, and especially preferably adapted for use in a rechargeable manganese zinc electrochemical cell, which electrolyte composition imparts improved performance characteristics to the rechargeable alkaline electrochemical cell. The electrolyte composition includes an electrolyte composition in which contains a potassium hydroxide and lithium hydroxide in a concentration and a respective molar ratio of about 1 molar potassium hydroxide to 2.5-3.7 (preferably 1:3) molar lithium hydroxide (1 M KOH:2.5-3.7 M LiOH). Also provided are alkaline electrochemical cells and alkaline batteries comprising the electrolyte compositions. The resultant alkaline electrochemical cells and alkaline batteries exhibit improved performance characteristics, as the electrolyte composition significantly inhibits the passivation of Zn, and may also be useful in this role in other battery chemistries.
