  • Patent number: 11089254
    Abstract: Techniques for reducing a read out time and power consumption of an image sensor used for eye tracking are described. In an example, a position of an eye element in an active area of a sensor is determined. The eye element can be any of an eye, a pupil of the eye, an iris of the eye, or a glint at the eye. A region of interest (ROI) around the position of the eye is defined. The image sensor reads out pixels confined to the ROI, thereby generating an ROI image that shows the eye element.

  • Patent number: 10996984
    Abstract: Systems and methods for the execution and operation of compute instances and tasks to perform batch jobs on behalf of customers of a computing resource service provider. Batch jobs can be subdivided into job fragments that can be concurrently executed by compute resources instantiated by the computing resource service provider. The computing resource service provider utilizes control mechanisms in the form of a maximum concurrent job fragment thresholds to mitigate the potential impact of resource constraints associated with larger batch jobs.

  • Patent number: 10880249
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide improved techniques for securely delivering content and messages to endpoints. Based on a strategic program for delivering the content, the messages may be delivered according to a schedule and to particular endpoints. Embodiments of the present invention provide the ability to apply filters in order to determine a set of endpoints according to the delivery schedule. The messages may be further modified to improve security by adding authentication mechanisms and other attributes that enhance the content delivered to the endpoints.

  • Patent number: 10862821
    Abstract: Approaches are described for managing workload, or other tasks in a data center, shared resource environment or other such electronic environment. In particular, a customer (or other end user, etc.) is able to use a computing device to submit a request to process information across at least one appropriate network to be received by a provider environment. The provider environment includes a set of resources (e.g., computing devices) operable to process the information for any of a variety of different purposes. Code can be deployed and executed at one or more of the host machines, wherein when executed, can enable the host machines to perform operations to process a workload in a distributed self-organizing manner, without a master server or other management device, to distribute work, handle situations where host machines go offline, etc.

  • Patent number: 10528565
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer-readable medium for performing a predictive caching operation in which a hit rate is improved by pre executing statements that are predicted based upon previous use patterns. More specifically, by analyzing a stream of statements provided to a server, such as a database server, patterns of usage are detected and based upon these patterns, statements provided to the server are executed before the actual application executes the predicted statements. Thus the application executes faster because the data requested is already cached based upon the predictive execution.

  • Patent number: 10454795
    Abstract: Devices and processes perform a metrics aggregation process within the context of a serverless compute environment that includes a fleet of execution environment containers for executing ephemeral functions. In response to receipt of triggering events, functions, registered to handle the events, are launched in separate execution environments of an event-driven compute service. The functions generate metrics that are sent to the execution environment via a call (e.g., via asynchronous call) to the execution environment, and the functions may retire, without saving execution state for the function, and before the execution environment passes the metrics to an intermediate metrics aggregation service. The metric aggregation system receives the metrics generated by the fleet of instances of the function from the plurality of execution environments of the event-driven compute service, batch processes the metrics into an aggregated record, and transmits the aggregate record to a metrics reporting service.

  • Patent number: 10372208
    Abstract: An image sensing apparatus has a light sensitive area and a control unit. The light sensitive area registers image data in response to an incoming amount of light, and is operable in an active mode wherein image data can be read out there from as well as in a standby mode wherein image data cannot be read out. The control unit produces a control signal setting the light sensitive area to operate in the active mode and the standby mode respectively in a cyclic manner during an operation period, which preferably encompasses multiple data frame read-outs of image data from the light sensitive area.

  • Patent number: 10296377
    Abstract: A computing resource service receives a request to execute a batch job. The computing resource service invokes a first compute instance to divide the batch job into a plurality of job fragments, where each job fragment comprises a respective subset of operations for the batch job that can be processed within a limited lifespan of a compute instance. The job fragments are distributed among a plurality of second compute instances to enable collective processing of the job fragments. The status of the batch job is determined based at least in part on individual statuses of the job fragments.

  • Patent number: 10157234
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes receiving a data-transformation request in relation to a visualization of a first dataset, wherein the data-transformation request expresses at least one transformation of the first dataset without using Structured Query Language (SQL) syntax, wherein the visualization is characterized by a first SQL statement. In addition, the method includes automatically determining based, at least in part, on a mapping of the visualization to the first SQL statement, a second SQL statement operable to return a second dataset. Further, the method includes causing the second SQL statement to be executed on one or more databases. Moreover, the method includes receiving, in response to the causing, the second dataset. The method also includes updating the visualization to reflect the second dataset.

  • Patent number: 10148895
    Abstract: There is provided a method and an arrangement for generating a combined image having an enhanced transition between image areas each representing a different type of image information. The method may include: determining a set of pixel coordinates, wherein the set of pixel coordinates partly overlaps at least one area in the combined image wherein the pixel values represent image information according to a first type of image information; and/or wherein the set of coordinates partly overlaps at least another area in the combined image wherein the pixel values represent image information according to a second type of image information, dependent on a selection rule; and generating a new combined image by assigning pixel values to the pixels having coordinates comprised in the determined set of pixel coordinates dependent on a mixing rule and the pixel values of the corresponding coordinates of the combined image.
