  • Publication number: 20210365374
    Abstract: An apparatus includes first CPU and second CPU cores, a L1 cache subsystem coupled to the first CPU core and comprising a L1 controller, and a L2 cache subsystem coupled to the L1 cache subsystem and to the second CPU core. The L2 cache subsystem includes a L2 memory and a L2 controller configured to operate in an aliased mode in response to a value in a memory map control register being asserted. In the aliased mode, the L2 controller receives a first request from the first CPU core directed to a virtual address in the L2 memory, receives a second request from the second CPU core directed to the virtual address in the L2 memory, directs the first request to a physical address A in the L2 memory, and directs the second request to a physical address B in the L2 memory.

  • Patent number: 11182746
    Abstract: The present approach relates to integrating a third-party interface with a client instance hosted by one or more data centers, wherein the client instance is accessible by one or more remote client networks. In accordance with the present approach, a request to incorporate a third-party communication interface with the client instance is determined by the client instance. Then, an authorization to incorporate the communication interface with the client instance interface is verified based at least in part on a comparison between an account authorized to access the third-party communication interface and an account authorized to access with the client instance. In response to the verification, a service request interface from the client instance is integrated with the third-party communication interface. Then, a service request is generated via the client instance based on one or more content from the third-party communication interface and one or more data from the client instance.

  • Patent number: 11171909
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for delayed processing for arm policy determination for content management system messaging, including, during a delayed processing window, receiving reward data for arm actions taken, where the arm actions were chosen based on a previous version of an arm choice policy, and the previous version of the arm choice policy was determined based on a previous set of reward data for a previous set of arm actions taken. When the delayed processing window has closed, a new arm choice policy is determined based at least in part on the action-reward data, and the previous set of reward data and/or the previous arm choice policy. After a request to choose an arm choice is received, a particular arm action to take is determined based on the new arm choice policy. This chosen arm is provided in response to the request.

  • Patent number: 11157837
    Abstract: A system can obtain observations from a dataset. The system can generate a set of training partitions based on the observations and generate an ensemble of machine-learning models based on the set of training partitions. The system can then receive new data and detect whether the new data is indicative of the event using the ensemble. In some cases, the system can update the ensemble by providing the new data as input to an unsupervised machine-learning model that is separate from the ensemble of machine-learning models; receiving an output from the unsupervised machine-learning model indicating whether or not the new data is indicative of the event; incorporating a new observation into the dataset indicating whether or not the new data is indicative of the event based on the output from the unsupervised machine-learning model; and updating the ensemble based on the dataset with the new observation.

  • Patent number: 11138117
    Abstract: In described examples, a processor system includes a processor core generating memory transactions, a lower level cache memory with a lower memory controller, and a higher level cache memory with a higher memory controller having a memory pipeline. The higher memory controller is connected to the lower memory controller by a bypass path that skips the memory pipeline. The higher memory controller: determines whether a memory transaction is a bypass write, which is a memory write request indicated not to result in a corresponding write being directed to the higher level cache memory; if the memory transaction is determined a bypass write, determines whether a memory transaction that prevents passing is in the memory pipeline; and if no transaction that prevents passing is determined to be in the memory pipeline, sends the memory transaction to the lower memory controller using the bypass path.
