  • Publication number: 20210074353
    Abstract: Various implementations described herein are directed to an integrated circuit having first latch circuitry with multiple first latches that latch multiple input data signals. The integrated circuit may include second latch circuitry having a single second latch that receives the latched multiple input data signals from the multiple first latches and outputs a single latched data signal based on the latched multiple input data signals. The integrated circuit may include intermediate logic circuitry that is coupled between the first latch circuitry and the second latch circuitry. The intermediate logic circuitry may receive and combine the multiple input data signals from the first latch circuitry into a single data signal that is provided to the single second latch of the second latch circuitry for output as the single latched data signal.

  • Patent number: 10936963
    Abstract: Techniques for predicting a user response to content are described. According to various embodiments, a configuration file is accessed, where the configuration file includes a user-specification of raw data accessible via external data sources and raw data encoding rules. In some embodiments, the raw data includes raw member data associated with a particular member and raw content data associated with a particular content item. Thereafter, source modules encode the raw data from the external data sources into feature vectors, based on the raw data encoding rules. An assembler module assembles one or more of the feature vectors into an assembled feature vector, based on user-specified assembly rules included in the configuration file. A prediction module performs a prediction modeling process based on the assembled feature vector and a prediction model, to predict a likelihood of the particular member performing a particular user action on the particular content item.

  • Patent number: 10932733
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for operating an imaging system that includes an intra-oral imaging sensor and an electronic processor. The intra-oral imaging sensor includes a housing, an image sensing component at least partially housed within the housing, and a multi-dimensional sensor at least partially housed within the housing. The electronic processor is configured to receive an output of the multi-dimensional sensor indicative of movement of the intra-oral imaging sensor. The output is compared to predetermined movement criteria indicative of a type of movement and, in response to determining that the type of movement of the imaging sensor has occurred, the electronic processor alters the operation of the imaging system.

  • Publication number: 20200412770
    Abstract: A method for establishing a communication session between a public switched telephone network (PSTN) endpoint and a Web real time communications (WebRTC) endpoint includes receiving, by a PSTN microservice (MS), a session initiation protocol (SIP) based signaling message from a PSTN endpoint and acquiring, by the PSTN MS, endpoint context attribute information from the SIP based signaling message. The method further includes generating, by the PSTN MS, a WebRTC based signaling message that includes an address identifier of an associate endpoint (AE) that is associated with the context attribute information and transmitting, by the PSTN MS, the WebRTC based signaling message to the AE to initiate a call session between the PSTN endpoint and the AE.
