  • Publication number: 20180336880
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for augmenting neural speech synthesis networks with low-dimensional trainable speaker embeddings in order to generate speech from different voices from a single model. As a starting point for multi-speaker experiments, improved single-speaker model embodiments, which may be referred to generally as Deep Voice 2 embodiments, were developed, as well as a post-processing neural vocoder for Tacotron (a neural character-to-spectrogram model). New techniques for multi-speaker speech synthesis were performed for both Deep Voice 2 and Tacotron embodiments on two multi-speaker TTS datasets—showing that neural text-to-speech systems can learn hundreds of unique voices from twenty-five minutes of audio per speaker.

  • Patent number: 10130385
    Abstract: A catheter for insertion into vasculature of a patient to a target area in the vasculature includes a hollow inner shaft, a non-occluding self-expandable scaffold coupled to the distal end of the inner shaft and disposed at the distal end of the inner shaft, and a hollow outer shaft. The outer shaft is slidable over the inner shaft and scaffold such that the scaffold is in a non-expanded state when the outer shaft is around the scaffold. The outer shaft has a state where the distal end of the outer shaft remains near the target area without the inner shaft and the scaffold being within the outer shaft. The inner shaft and the scaffold are removable through the proximal end of the outer shaft while the distal end of the outer shaft remains near the target area.

  • Publication number: 20180300312
    Abstract: Presented herein are systems and methods for question answering (QA). In embodiments, extractive question answering (QA) is cast as an iterative search problem through the document's structure: select the answer's sentence, start word, and end word. This representation reduces the space of each search step and allows computation to be conditionally allocated to promising search paths. In embodiments, globally normalizing the decision process and back-propagating through beam search makes this representation viable and learning efficient. Various model embodiments, referred to as Globally Normalized Readers (GNR), achieve excellent performance. Also introduced are embodiments of data-augmentation to produce semantically valid examples by aligning named entities to a knowledge base and performing swaps new entities of the same type. This methodology also improved the performance of GNR models and is of independent interest for a variety of natural language processing (NLP) tasks.

  • Patent number: PP30059
    Abstract: A new and distinct variety of apple was identified from a population of seedlings derived from a cross of ‘Goldrush’ and ‘Sweet 16’. The new variety, named ‘MAIA-Z’ is distinct from ‘Goldrush’ as ‘MAIA-Z’ ripens late-September, 3 weeks before ‘Goldrush’. Unlike ‘Goldrush’, ‘MAIA-Z’ has red skin with yellow ground color. ‘MAIA-Z’ is distinct from ‘Sweet 16’ as ‘MAIA-Z’ ripens 2 weeks after ‘Sweet 16’ and will retain crispness and flavor in normal storage for 20 weeks longer than ‘Sweet 16’. The fruit of ‘MAIA-Z’ adheres to the tree for approximately 6-7 weeks past fruit maturity, while ‘Sweet 16’ fruit will abscise from the tree within 2 weeks of maturity. ‘MAIA-Z’ fruit are large sized, crisp, with pleasant sweet-tart flavor and long storability.

  • Patent number: PP30088
    Abstract: A new and distinct variety of apple was identified from a population of seedlings derived from an open-pollinated ‘Honeycrisp’ block. The new variety, named ‘MAIA-T,’ is distinct from ‘Honeycrisp’ as ‘MAIA-T’ ripens mid-September, 2 weeks after ‘Honeycrisp.’ Unlike ‘Honeycrisp,’ ‘MAIA-T’ has purple skin, yellow ground color, and considerable russet. ‘MAIA-T’ fruit are medium sized, crisp, with more complex, sweet-tart flavors than ‘Honeycrisp.’ ‘MAIA-T’ does not maintain crisp texture in 35° F. storage for as long as ‘Honeycrisp.
