  • Publication number: 20200035307
    Abstract: A read table management method for a solid state storage device includes the following steps. If the lowest computation value in a hot group is lower than the highest computation value in a cold group when a read table adjusting process is enabled, a first read voltage set corresponding to the lowest computation value in the hot group and a second read voltage set corresponding to the highest computation value in the cold group are swapped with each other. Consequently, the second read voltage set becomes to belong to the hot group, and the first read voltage set becomes to belong to the cold group.

  • Patent number: 10354380
    Abstract: A method to characterize shape variations in brain ventricles during embryonic growth in mammals, the method including extracting a brain ventricle skeleton from one or more images, calculating a volume profile for the skeleton using the extracted images, partitioning the brain ventricle based on the volume profile along the skeleton, the brain ventricle being partitioned into two lateral ventricles and a main ventricle, the main ventricle being further partitioned into three sub regions, determining volume vectors of the two lateral ventricles and the three sub regions, computing a means square error between the determined computed volume vectors and a pretrained mean volume vector of embryos during different gestational stages, and classifying the embryo to the gestational stage having the lowest mean square error.

  • Patent number: 10157466
    Abstract: A method to segment images that contain multiple objects in a nested structure including acquiring an image; defining the multiple objects by layers, each layer corresponding to one region, where a region contains an innermost object and all the objects nested within the innermost object; stacking the layers in an order of the nested structure of the multiple objects, the stack of layers having at least a top layer and a bottom layer; extending each layer with padded nodes; connecting the top layer to a sink and the bottom layer to a source, wherein each intermediate layer between the top layer and the bottom layer are connected only to the adjacent layer by undirected links; and measuring a boundary length for each layer.

  • Publication number: 20150127796
    Abstract: When performing resource management between different service providers, a first interface and a second interface are provided simultaneously on an electronic device for connecting to a first service provider and a second service provider, respectively. The first interface is arranged to display the resource list of the first service provider as icons, and the second interface is arranged to display the resource list of the second service provider as icons. When a specific icon on one of the interfaces is selected and then dragged to the other interface, resource transmission between the first and second service providers may be activated.

  • Publication number: 20150121271
    Abstract: A method of managing icons is used on a screen of an electronic device which displays a first icon and a second icon. While dragging the first icon, the first and second icons are displayed on a first region of the screen and a group symbol is displayed on a second region of the screen. The first icon is dragged onto the group symbol and then released for creating a new group which contains the first icon. A group icon associated with the new group is then displayed on the second region of the screen.

  • Patent number: 5296643
    Abstract: A system and method for control of so-called KARAOKE equipment whereby the musical key of the pre-recorded accompaniment music may be altered automatically to substantially coincide with the analyzed or given vocal range of the singer, for example, soprano, tenor, mezzo-soprano, baritone, alto or bass, or with the preferred key to be sung entered by the singer, for example, E key, so as to eliminate the trial-and-error manual key adjustments during singing.
