  • Publication number: 20220309372
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a pair of depletion gates, an accumulation gate, and a conductive resonator. The depletion gates are spaced apart from each other. The accumulation gate is over the depletion gates. The conductive resonator is over the depletion gates and the accumulation gate. The conductive resonator includes a first portion, a second portion, and a third portion. The first portion and the second portion are on opposite sides of the accumulation gate. The third portion interconnects the first and second portions of the conductive resonator and across the depletion gates. A bottom surface of the first portion of the conductive resonator is lower than a bottom surface of the accumulation gate.

  • Patent number: 11443182
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided to implement an enhanced privacy deep learning system framework (hereafter “framework”). The framework receives, from a client computing device, an encrypted first subnet model of a neural network, where the first subnet model is one partition of multiple partitions of the neural network. The framework loads the encrypted first subnet model into a trusted execution environment (TEE) of the framework, decrypts the first subnet model, within the TEE, and executes the first subnet model within the TEE. The framework receives encrypted input data from the client computing device, loads the encrypted input data into the TEE, decrypts the input data, and processes the input data in the TEE using the first subnet model executing within the TEE.

  • Patent number: 11426024
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for sharing capsule image data and beverage preparation parameters, from one or more beverage preparation machines with a remote computer system via a network, such as the Internet, is disclosed. The remote computer system may process the capsule image data to determine characteristics of the capsule (e.g., a type of capsule, such as a brand, or beverage ingredients in the capsule), thereby relieving the beverage preparation from having to determine information about the capsule. The remote computer may track a user's consumption of capsules, may compare this value to the user's past capsule purchase history, and may determine if the user's supply of capsules is below a threshold value (e.g., below a week's worth of capsules).

  • Publication number: 20220263059
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for heat treatment of whole cell structures. A battery may be formed based on applying of heat treatment to a whole cell composition that includes, at least, both anode material and cathode material, such that the anode material and the cathode material are heat treated at the same time. The heat treatment may include pyrolysis. The whole cell composition, and the corresponding cell formed based thereon, may include solid state electrolyte.

  • Publication number: 20220207137
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided for detecting abnormal system call sequences in a monitored computing environment. The mechanisms receive, from a computing system resource of the monitored computing environment, a system call of an observed system call sequence for evaluation. A trained recurrent neural network (RNN), trained to predict system call sequences, processes the system call to generate a prediction of a subsequent system call in a predicted system call sequence. Abnormal call sequence logic compares the subsequent system call in the predicted system call sequence to an observed system call in the observed system call sequence and identifies a difference between the predicted system call sequence and the observed system call sequence based on results of the comparing. The abnormal call sequence logic generates an alert notification in response to identifying the difference.

  • Publication number: 20060282336
    Abstract: The present invention provides an internet search engine and associated website which provides users with ranked website search results. In an aspect of the present invention, the search engine and associated website provides a critical rating function. Critics can be human experts who review websites on the internet and rate and comment on them. Users apply to become critics, and their applications are reviewed for acceptability by other critics. Critics are selected in particular professions for their expertise in those areas. The critics provide a rating and comments in relation to a site, or to other online content, including text, audio and video, among other things. Ratings and comments are also available to users. In other words, the present invention provides for at least two levels of critical review: critics' review and users' review. In an aspect of the present invention, an advanced critic sorting mechanism is provided.

  • Patent number: 7061804
    Abstract: Techniques for quickly and reliably accessing a memory device (e.g., a NAND Flash memory) with adaptive interface timing are described. For memory access with adaptive interface timing, the NAND Flash memory is accessed at an initial memory access rate, which may be the rate predicted to achieve reliable memory access. Error correction coding (ECC), which is often employed for NAND Flash memory, is then used to ensure reliable access of the NAND Flash. For a read operation, one page of data is read at a time from the NAND Flash memory, and the ECC determines whether the page read from the NAND Flash memory contains any errors. If errors are encountered, then a slower memory access rate is selected, and the page with error is read again from the NAND Flash memory at the new rate. The techniques may be used to write data to the NAND Flash memory.
