  • Publication number: 20240169161
    Abstract: Obtaining collections of sentences in different languages that are usable for training models in various applications of artificial intelligence is provided. A method is provided that obtains, from text corpus, webpages in a plurality of languages, each of the webpages corresponding to an URL; obtains annotations for each of the webpages based on its URL, to obtain annotated data entries corresponding to the webpages, each of the annotated data entries including a classification label corresponding to a sub-topic of one of a plurality of topics, where each of the plurality of topics includes a corresponding plurality of sub-topics; filters the annotated data entries to obtain topic-specific content in a target language based on the classification labels, the topic-specific content corresponding to one or more sub-topics; performs post-processing on the topic-specific content to obtain result data; and outputs the result data for the topic.

  • Publication number: 20230408225
    Abstract: A computing system for executing a simulation of a tactical engagement configured to receive a first set of data comprising an indication that a laser sensor worn by a participant was struck by a laser transmitted from a firearm; and receive a second set of data from the firearm comprising data generated by an image capture device of the firearm and an indication that one or more of the participants are present in the data. The computing system is further configured to retrieve data comprising position information and velocity information on the participants that are present in the second set of data. The computing system is further configured to identify a target participant from the participants identified in the second set of data; determine whether the target participant is struck by a simulated ammunition round fired from the firearm; and determine a final outcome for the tactical engagement.

  • Publication number: 20210065709
    Abstract: Described herein are dialog systems, and techniques for providing such dialog systems, that are suitable for use on standalone computing devices. In some embodiments, a dialog system includes a dialog manager, which takes as input an input logical form, which may be a representation of user input. The dialog, manager may include a dialog state tracker, an execution subsystem, a dialog policy subsystem, and a context stack. The dialog state tracker may generate an intermediate logical form from the input logical form combined with a context from the context stack. The context stack may maintain a history of a current dialog, and thus, the intermediate logical form may include contextual information potentially missing from the input logical form. The execution subsystem may execute the intermediate logical form to produce an execution result, and the dialog policy subsystem may generate an output logical form based on the execution result.

  • Patent number: 10371686
    Abstract: A detection device for molten metal is provided. The detection device includes a sample cup having a cavity configured to receive a sample of molten metal and a blob arranged in the cavity. The blob includes a carbide stabilizing element and a hydrogen releasing material including a hydroxide of an alkaline earth metal. The blob is provided for use in detecting phase change temperatures during solidification of a sample of molten cast iron. The blob is also resistant to moisture gain and moisture loss during transport and storage. A method of detecting phase change temperatures of the molten iron or molten cast iron sample using the blob and a method of manufacturing the blob are also provided.

  • Patent number: 10116136
    Abstract: In a frequency control system, a system controller assigns load-specific threshold frequencies to electrical loads of a fleet of electrical loads. Load controllers perform load monitoring and control operations for controlled electrical loads of the fleet including (i) comparing a measurement of the electrical frequency with the threshold frequency assigned to the controlled electrical load and (ii) operating the controlled electrical load based on the comparison. For example, each load controller may perform operation (ii) by turning the controlled electrical load on if the measurement of the electrical frequency is greater than the threshold frequency assigned to the controlled electrical load, and turning the controlled electrical load off if the measurement of the electrical frequency is less than the threshold frequency assigned to the controlled electrical load. The threshold frequencies may be assigned based on State of Charge (SOC) values for the loads.

  • Patent number: 8781767
    Abstract: Systems and methods for performing data anomaly detection and/or removal are usable to accurately assess baseline power consumption. According to one embodiment of the invention, a system can be provided. The system can be operable to receive energy consumption data of a location; select, based at least in part on a collection period of the energy consumption data, an algorithm for detecting anomalies in the energy consumption data; perform the algorithm on the energy consumption data to detect the anomalies in the energy consumption data; and determine an energy consumption baseline for the location based at least in part on a result of the algorithm.

  • Patent number: 8065192
    Abstract: Systems and methods for organizational purchasing are disclosed herein. More specifically, in certain embodiments a campaign corresponding to a product may be created and potential buyers informed of the campaign. These potential buyers may then themselves purchase the product in association with the campaign. In this manner not only are potential buyers informed that a product is being offered to one or more other buyers but the purchases of the individual buyers in association with the campaign may be aggregated to, for example, achieve a lower purchasing cost for each buyer relative to what the buyer would have paid if he had purchased only the quantity of product he desired.
