  • Publication number: 20220173901
    Abstract: The disclosure herein describes securing access to a service resource within a security boundary. A security gateway instance receives a request from an edge deployment outside the security boundary. The request includes identity data identifying the edge deployment. The identity data is validated based on allowed identity data of the security gateway instance and based on a validation handler associated with the service resource. Based on validating the identity data and validating the request, the identity data is transformed using security data specific to the security gateway instance. The transformed identity data indicates the request has been validated by the security gateway instance. Based on transforming the identity data of the request, the transformed identity data and the request are forwarded to the service resource via a network link within the security boundary, wherein the service resource is configured to process the request based on identifying the transformed identity data.

  • Publication number: 20200380038
    Abstract: Described herein is a mechanism for utilizing a neural network to identify and rank search results. A machine learning model is trained by converting training data comprising query-document entries into query term-document entries. The query term-document entries are utilized to train the machine learning model. A set of query terms are identified. The query terms can be derived from a query history. The trained machine learning model is used to calculate document ranking scores for the query terms and the resultant scores are stored in a pre-calculated term-document index. A query to search the document index is broken down into its constituent terms and an aggregate document ranking score is calculated from a weighted sum of the document ranking scores corresponding to the individual query terms. Because the term-document index can be pre-calculated, it can be downloaded to provide deep learning search capabilities in a computationally limited environment.

  • Publication number: 20200333441
    Abstract: Various forms of optical circulator are disclosed. The optical circulators act on polarisation of the light to direct light between its ports. Also disclosed are systems and methods for facilitating estimation of a spatial profile of an environment based on a light detection and ranging (LiDAR) based technique. The systems and method may include or use one or more of the various forms of optical circulator. In one arrangement, the present disclosure facilitates spatial profile estimation based on directing light over one dimension, such as along the vertical direction. In another arrangement, by further directing the one-dimensionally directed light in another dimension, such as along the horizontal direction, the present disclosure facilitates spatial profile estimation based on directing light in two dimensions.

  • Publication number: 20200175047
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatus for automatically determining the relevance of matches between entities. A set of one or more indicators of relevance for each of a plurality of matches may be detected, where each of the plurality of matches exists between a first entity and a different one of a plurality of entities. Each set of one or more indicators of relevance indicates a degree of two-way interest for a corresponding one of the plurality of matches, the degree of two-way interest indicating both a degree of interest of the first entity in the corresponding one of the plurality of entities and a degree of interest of the corresponding one of the plurality of entities in the first entity. A probability of relevance of each of the plurality of matches may be determined based at least in part upon a corresponding set of one or more indicators of relevance. Each of the plurality of matches may be ranked based at least in part on the corresponding probability of relevance.

  • Patent number: 10022048
    Abstract: Method, system and computer program for measuring light diffusion in the eyeball or in the ocular region. The method comprises: projecting a punctiform light beam onto the retina; correcting low-order ocular aberrations of the eye; capturing and recording an image of the retinal plane formed after reflection of the punctiform light beam on the retina and a double passage through the ocular media of the eye; and at the same time as capturing the image of the retinal plane, performing a high- and low-order ocular aberration measurement in the plane of the pupil and performing a light diffusion measurement, combining ocular aberration measurement information with information on the image of the retinal plane. The system and the computer program are adapted for implementing the method.

  • Publication number: 20180018332
    Abstract: A device includes a memory that stores a prefetching model. A control module receives a content page including one or more links each associated with selectable content and collects data associated with the content page. The collected data includes at least one of first data indicative of respective relationships between each of the links and a viewport of the device and second data indicative of characteristics of the viewport. The control module further assigns, using the prefetching model, respective scores to each of the links based on the collected data, and selectively generates, based on the assigned scores, a request to prefetch the selectable content associated with at least one of the links.
