  • Publication number: 20190155681
    Abstract: A method for managing data transfer for a plurality of processors. Transfer messages exchanged between processor units and an external node in an integrity manager located in hardware in communication with the processor units and the external node are received. An exchange of the transfer messages is managed by the processor units with the external node based on a selected mode in mixed integrity modes such that redundantly calculated outputs from the processor units in a high integrity mode match.

  • Publication number: 20190155325
    Abstract: A method for synchronizing processor units. An external synchronizer is communicated with to determine whether an undesired amount of skew is present between a first processor unit and a second processor unit in communication with a synchronization system. The first processor unit is selectively directed to perform an action without generating a needed result such that the undesired amount of skew between the first processor unit and the second processor unit is reduced when the undesired amount of skew is present in the first processor unit. The first processor unit and the second processor unit are associated with each other for a high integrity mode in which integrity checks are performed on corresponding messages generated by the first processor unit and the second processor unit.

  • Patent number: 9454672
    Abstract: A method of controlling distribution of content in a message sent by a message sender comprises receiving an indication from the message sender that the message is to be protected, identifying content in the message to be protected, adding the identified content to a database of protected content, and determining whether subsequently received content in a subsequently received message is associated with the identified content. A system for controlling distribution of content in a message sent by a message sender comprises a processor configured to receive an indication from the message sender that the message is to be protected, identify content in the message to be protected, add the identified content to a database of protected content, and determine whether subsequently received content in a subsequently received message is associated with the identified content.

  • Patent number: 7272562
    Abstract: A system and method for utilizing speech recognition to efficiently perform data indexing procedures includes an authoring module that coordinates an authoring procedure for creating an index file that has pattern word sets corresponding to data objects stored in a memory of a host electronic device. The pattern word sets are generated with a speech recognition engine that transforms spoken data descriptions into text data descriptions for creating the pattern word sets. The pattern word sets are associated in the index file with data object identifiers that uniquely identify the corresponding data objects. A retrieval module manages a retrieval procedure in which the speech recognition engine converts a spoken data request into a text data request. The retrieval module compares the text data request and the pattern word sets to identify a requested object identifier for locating a requested data object from among the data objects stored in the memory of the host electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20060031071
    Abstract: A system and method for automatically implementing a finite state automaton for speech recognition includes a finite state automaton generator that analyzes one or more input text sequences and automatically creates a node table and a link table to define the finite state automaton. The node table includes N-tuples from the input text sequences. Each N-tuple includes a current word and a corresponding history of one or more prior words from the input text sequences. The node table also includes unique node identifiers that each correspond to a different respective one of the current words. The link table includes specific links between successive words from the input text sequences. The links identified in the link table are defined by utilizing start node identifiers and end node identifiers from the unique node identifiers of the node table.

  • Patent number: 6535886
    Abstract: A method and system for compressing a data structure. A segment is identified within the data structure. Each segment identified is counted for the number of occurrences of the segment within the data structure. If the number of occurrences is greater than one, the segment is saved in a recurring data structure. Also, the recurring segment within the data structure is replaced with an index to the segment stored in the recurring data structure.
