  • Patent number: 10997492
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention are directed to computer-implemented techniques for performing data compression and conversion between data formats of varying degrees of precision, and more particularly for improving the inferencing (application) of artificial neural networks using a reduced precision (e.g., INT8) data format. Embodiments of the present invention generate candidate conversions of data output, then employ a relative measure of quality to identify the candidate conversion with the greatest accuracy (i.e., least divergence from the original higher precision values). The representation can be then be used during inference to perform computations on the resulting output data.

  • Patent number: 10994465
    Abstract: A rigid connecting device for connecting the upper and lower surfaces inside an oil tank includes a connecting rod. The upper and lower sides of the connecting rod are each provided with a connecting end surface. The connecting end surface is provided with material-passing hole. The outer surface of the rigid connecting device is covered with high-density polyethylene. The upper and lower surfaces of the oil tank are connected by a connecting rod, and such arrangement is locally applied to areas where the rigidity of the oil tank is poor, so there are more effective space. The part of the rigid connecting rod contacting with the oil fuel is made of high-density polyethylene, so the requirements of strength and anti-corrosion can be satisfied.
