  • Patent number: 10417577
    Abstract: Some embodiments include an experiment management interface for a machine learning system. The experiment management interface can manage one or more workflow runs related to building or testing machine learning models. The experiment management interface can receive an experiment initialization command to create a new experiment associated with a new workflow. A workflow can be represented by an interdependency graph of one or more data processing operators. The experiment management interface enables definition of the new workflow from scratch or by cloning and modifying an existing workflow. The workflow can define a summary format for its inputs and outputs. In some embodiments, the experiment management interface can automatically generate a comparative visualization at the conclusion of running the new workflow based on an input schema or an output schema of the new workflow.

  • Patent number: 10402481
    Abstract: Systems and methods for switching to different states of electronic content being developed in a content creation application. This involves storing different states of the electronic content using a content-addressable data store, where individual states are represented by identifiers that identify items of respective states stored in the content-addressable data store. Identical items that are included in multiple states are stored once in the content-addressable data store and referenced by common identifiers. Input is received to change the electronic content to a selected state of the different states and the electronic content is displayed in the selected state based on identifiers for the selected state. In this way, undo, redo, and other commands to switch to different states of electronic content being developed are provided.

  • Patent number: 10402600
    Abstract: Embodiments herein describe an RFID reader tray which includes a receptacle for detecting RFID tags disposed on physical items. In one embodiment, a sidewall is disposed around the periphery of a bottom support structure and extends away from the bottom support structure to form the receptacle. The reader tray includes an RFID antenna disposed under the bottom support structure on which the items can be placed. The material of the bottom support structure is selected such that RFID signals emitted by the RFID antenna can radiate through the bottom support structure and reach RFID tags placed on items in the receptacle. In one embodiment, the reader tray includes a shield for reflecting the RFID signals so that the most of the RFID signals radiate through the bottom support structure and into the receptacle.

  • Patent number: 10403486
    Abstract: A data acquisition system for a TOF mass spectrometer comprises a processing module and a data collection module. The processing module generates a stream of data comprising, for each respective transient of a first scan, a set of time-intensity related parameter pairs. For each new set of data, the data collection module reads out a previous set of data from a previous memory bank, merges that previous set of data with the new set of data, and writes that latest merged set of data into a memory bank other than the previous memory bank. The data acquisition system provides a convenient way to merge sequential sets of time-intensity related parameter pairs for respective transients as a stream of data for a first scan is generated.
