  • Publication number: 20210224315
    Abstract: A search engine is modified to perform increasingly precise image searching using iterative Natural Language (NL) interactions. From an NL search input, the modification extracts a set of input features, which includes a set of response features corresponding to an NL statement in the NL search input and a set of image features from a seed image in the NL search input. The modification performs image analysis on an image result in a result set of a query including at least some of the input features. In a next iteration of NL interactions, at least some of the result set is provided. An NL response in the iteration is added to a cumulative NL basis, and a revised result set is provided, which includes a new image result corresponding to a new response feature extracted from the cumulative NL basis.

  • Publication number: 20210222218
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods for preparing modified starches, and uses thereof. A method for preparing a modified starch includes the steps of: modifying a gelatinized starch suspension with ?-amylase; after inactivating the ?-amylase, further modifying with a branching enzyme, after inactivating the branching enzyme, further modifying with pullulanase, after inactivating the pullulanase, precipitating a resulting enzymatic hydrolysate with an alcohol to obtain precipitates; and drying the precipitates to obtain the modified starch. The methods disclosed herein substantially increase the number of linear chains with a degree of polymerization (DP) 6-11 in the starch chains and, thus, significantly increase the content of resistant starch (RS) in the modified starch—thereby facilitating the use in foods and medicaments.

  • Publication number: 20210227575
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed. In an example from the perspective of a User Equipment (UE), the UE receives, via a Radio Resource Control (RRC) message, a resource configuration of a first configured grant to be used in RRC inactive state. The UE performs a first new transmission using the first configured grant in RRC inactive state. After the performing the first new transmission, the UE receives an uplink grant in RRC inactive state via Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH). The UE determines whether the uplink grant is for performance of a second new transmission or for performance of a first retransmission. The UE performs the second new transmission using the uplink grant in RRC inactive state if the UE determines that the uplink grant is for performance of the second new transmission.

  • Publication number: 20210064618
    Abstract: A federated database-management system receives an SQL query or other type of data-access request. The federated system's host DBMS parses, rewrites, and optimizes the request into an optimal data-access plan, then determines which portions of the plan require access to data stored on the federated systems' remote databases. The federated host partitions the plan into subplans that each represent instructions of the original data-access request that were directed to a corresponding remote database of the federated DBMS. Each subplan is then transmitted to its corresponding remote database, which directly executes the subplan and returns results to the host. If necessary, a subplan is translated from an original generic access-plan format into a database-specific format required by its corresponding remote database.
