  • Patent number: 10895903
    Abstract: In an embodiment, an electronic device includes a package power zone controller. The device monitors the overall power consumption of multiple components of a “package.” The package power zone controller may detect workloads in which the package components (e.g. different types of processors, peripheral hardware, etc.) are each consuming relatively low levels of power, but the overall power consumption is greater than a desired target. The package power zone controller may implement various mechanisms to reduce power consumption in such cases.

  • Publication number: 20210011939
    Abstract: Described herein are, among other things, techniques, devices, and systems for generating one or more trained machine-learning models. Also described herein are techniques, devices, and systems for applying a consumption history of a particular user to the trained model(s) to generate score data indicating a correlation between each content-item title and the consumption history. The techniques then determine a ranked list of content items having a highest correlation to the consumption history, which may be used to retrieve videos associated with the most-correlated content items for generating a compilation video composed of these retrieved videos.

  • Publication number: 20210011958
    Abstract: Described herein are, among other things, techniques, devices, and systems for generating one or more trained machine-learning models used for generating content-item recommendations. Also described herein are techniques, devices, and systems for applying a consumption history of a particular user to the trained model(s) to generate score data indicating a correlation between each content-item title and the consumption history, as well as modifying this score data using one or more biasing factors for generating result data. In addition, the techniques, devices, and systems may use this result data, along with received user input, for determining an order in which to present one or more content items to the user. For example, this may include determining which content items to recommend to a user and in which order to do so.

  • Publication number: 20200379534
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for allocating and distributing power management budgets for subsystems (e.g., power usage clients) of a computer system. A power budget allocation subsystem may include a plurality of feedback branches having different associated time constants. Power usage clients with slower power response times may be provided power budgets based on a feedback branch having an associated longer time constant, while power usage clients with faster power response times may be provided with power budgets based on a feedback branch having an associated shorter time constant. The power budgets may be determined in the feedback branches based on power budgeting policies weighting the power budget of each subsystem relative to total power mitigation.

  • Publication number: 20200286209
    Abstract: A system and method of removing turbulence from an image of a time ordered sequence of image frames. The method comprises removing effects of turbulence from a first image of the sequence to create an initial corrected image frame; determining a number of iterations required to achieve a desired turbulence removal for a subsequent image in the sequence and satisfy a latency constraint and an available memory capacity; and determining, based on the number of required iterations, a minimum set of image frames required to remove turbulence from the subsequent image. The minimum set of image frames comprises: a number of image frames of the sequence, a number of image frames generated in an intermediate iteration of turbulence removal and the initial corrected image frame. The method further comprises using the minimum set of image frames to remove turbulence from the subsequent image of the sequence.

  • Publication number: 20200273424
    Abstract: The invention provides a technique for targeted scaling of the voltage and/or frequency of a processor included in a computing device. One embodiment involves scaling the voltage/frequency of the processor based on the number of frames per second being input to a frame buffer in order to reduce or eliminate choppiness in animations shown on a display of the computing device. Another embodiment of the invention involves scaling the voltage/frequency of the processor based on a utilization rate of the GPU in order to reduce or eliminate any bottleneck caused by slow issuance of instructions from the CPU to the GPU. Yet another embodiment of the invention involves scaling the voltage/frequency of the CPU based on specific types of instructions being executed by the CPU. Further embodiments include scaling the voltage and/or frequency of a CPU when the CPU executes workloads that have characteristics of traditional desktop/laptop computer applications.

  • Publication number: 20200219370
    Abstract: An apparatus for creating haptic stimulations is provided. The apparatus includes one or more pods coupled to a garment, each pod including: (i) an internal structure, and (ii) an airtight bladder surrounding the internal structure, where the bladder is pneumatically coupled to a pneumatic device that is configured to control a pressurized state of the bladder. Each pod is configured to: (i) have a first degree of flexibility when the bladder of the pod is in a first pressurized state; and (ii) have a second degree of flexibility, less than the first degree of flexibility, when the bladder of the pod is in a second pressurized state different from the first pressurized state. Each pod provides a haptic stimulation to a wearer of the garment when the corresponding bladder is in the second pressurized state.

  • Publication number: 20200197813
    Abstract: Techniques are described for automatically reducing cheating in an interactive execution environment, such as to perform automated operations to detect and stop use of cheat software in an online game environment, and to restrict subsequent access to the online game environment for users who are identified as using cheat software. The techniques may include using deep learning techniques to train one or more models to classify particular types of gameplay actions as being unauthorized if cheat software use is detected, including to determine a likelihood of whether a separate cheat detection decision system would decide that particular gameplay actions are authorized or not authorized if the additional cheat detection decision system assesses those gameplay actions, and then using the trained model(s) and in some cases the additional cheat detection decision system for the cheat software detection and prevention.

  • Publication number: 20200174570
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a method includes detecting a motion pattern in proximity to a first midair interface (MAI) device, the motion pattern being of a body part of a user. In an embodiment, the method includes converting the detected motion pattern to a simulated surface of an object projected from a shared MAI device, wherein the first MAI device and the shared MAI device each correspond to a different user. In an embodiment, the method includes causing a behavior change in the simulated surface being projected from the shared MAI device. An embodiment includes a computer usable program product. The computer usable program product includes a computer-readable storage device, and program instructions stored on the storage device.
