  • Patent number: 10402858
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and system for enabling the automated selection of keywords for rapid keyword portfolio expansion are disclosed. Various embodiments are operable to receive a plurality of keywords to be trafficked on a search engine, and automatically select at least one of the plurality of keywords to be omitted from trafficking on the search engine based on pruning criteria. In some example embodiments, the automatically selecting comprises for each one of the selected at least one of the plurality of keywords, determining a corresponding confidence level with which a corresponding predicted value of the keyword(s) is expected to satisfy the pruning criteria, with the automatic selection of each one of the selected at least one of the plurality of keywords being based on the corresponding confidence level and a configurable confidence level threshold.

  • Patent number: 10380500
    Abstract: A system and method for managing asynchronously receiving updates and merging updates into global versions of a statistical model using version control are disclosed. During operation, the system transmits a first global version of a statistical model to a set of client computer systems. Next, the system obtains, from a first subset of the client computer systems, a first set of updates to the first global version. The system then merges the first set of updates into a second global version of the statistical model. Finally, the system transmits the second global version to the client computer systems asynchronously from receiving a second set of updates to the first and/or second global versions from a second subset of the client computer systems.

  • Patent number: 9588202
    Abstract: A method and system for providing an article of manufacture with increased longevity of hyperpolarized 1H signals (and other species) for NMR spectroscopy and MRI. The method involves providing a material including a molecular species susceptible of NMR spectroscopy, by providing parahydrogen (and other appropriate species) to disperse within the material/solvent to establish increased longevity of the NMR signals. The material can be in a solution with a surfactant and catalysts added to enhance the persistence of parahydrogen (or other species) in the form of enhanced solubility, microbubbles or micelles and resultant hydrogenation (or other species) of the material.

  • Patent number: 9195246
    Abstract: Disclosed are devices, apparatus, circuitry, components, mechanisms, modules, systems, and methods for virtual output voltage sensing for feed-forward control of a voltage regulator. A buffer has an input coupled to sense a monitored signal indicating a duty cycle of switch circuitry coupled to an output filter of the voltage regulator. The buffer is configured to provide at an output, responsive to the monitored signal, a buffer output signal having a high reference voltage for a high side on time and a low reference voltage for a low side on time of the switch circuitry. A filter is coupled to receive and filter the buffer output signal to provide a feed-forward signal indicating the output voltage of the voltage regulator. Control circuitry is configured to control the switching of the switch circuitry responsive to the feed-forward signal.

  • Patent number: 6812778
    Abstract: A compensating circuit for providing a compensating control signal to a regulating circuit is provided. The compensating circuit includes a multiplying circuit and a miller capacitor. The multiplying circuit may provide a predetermined multiplication factor to a miller current level based on a resistor ratio. The multiplying circuit may also provide a voltage gain stage before the miller capacitor. Both multiplying circuits enable the size of the miller capacitor to be reduced resulting in valuable printed circuit board space savings.
