  • Publication number: 20220030091
    Abstract: Various embodiments improve the operation of computers by providing methods of transmitting data with low latency and high bandwidth. Data may be transmitted in a packet composed of data flits, the data flits having at least two different formats configured to implement different communication protocols. In some embodiments, a given flit may be transmitted using two different modulation methods, with a first part of the flit transmitted using a first modulation method, such as a binary method, and a second part of the flit using a higher-order modulation method.

  • Publication number: 20220007082
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes receiving video, three-dimensional (3D) motion data, and location data from image capture devices that captured video during an event. One or more metadata tags may be applied to the video during key moments in the video. The metadata tags may be provided through user input or automatically generated through analysis of the video by a machine-learning model. 3D motion graphics may be generated for the key moments based on actions taking place during the event. The actions may be determined by analyzing the video, the metadata tags, and the 3D motion data. Finally, a composite video comprising at least a portion of the video annotated with the 3D motion graphics may be generated and provided for download or as a video stream.

  • Patent number: 11169990
    Abstract: Pre-computed search results are re-computed by a computation platform based on available computing resources. A search platform maintains at least a first and a second group of pre-computed search results and provides the first group of pre-computed search results at a first provision time and the second group of pre-computed search results at a second provision time to requesting clients. A re-computation controller schedules the re-computation of the pre-computed search results on the basis of validity probabilities being associated with the pre-computed search results and the respective provision times. Re-computation of the first group and the second group is scheduled such that the validity of the search results of the first group given by the validity probabilities is maximized at the first provision time and the validity of the pre-computed search results of the second group given by the validity probabilities is maximized at the second provision time.

  • Publication number: 20210190990
    Abstract: Example embodiments provide systems and methods for simulating a disease outbreak using a relatively simple formula based on a limited number of input parameters. In particular, disease severity is computed based on a relationship between leaf wetness duration and average temperature during a wetness period. The resulting model is a physical, deterministic model that accepts hourly weather data as input and outputs the most significant severity event of disease infection during a specified (e.g., one-day) period. This information can then be used to guide the application of various treatments when they can be most effective (e.g., when predicted disease severity is at its worst).

  • Publication number: 20210178088
    Abstract: Embodiments provide aerosolization device for providing aerosolized medicament to user. The aerosolization device includes conduit, aerosol generator, fluid receiving chamber, restrictor within the conduit, and indicator mechanism. Conduit has an inner wall and a mouthpiece end for causing an inspiratory flow. Aerosol generator includes a vibratable mesh laterally offset from the inner wall. Fluid receiving chamber receives liquid medicament. At least a portion of chamber is tapered such that liquid medicament is directed onto vibratable mesh for aerosolization. Restrictor defines a plurality of apertures that provide increases in pressure differential that vary with inspiratory flow rate within conduit and provide relatively laminar flow downstream of restrictor. Indicator mechanism indicates a state of flow parameters relative to a predefined range. Aerosol generator is configured to aerosolize at least a portion of liquid medicament only when flow parameters of the inspiratory flow are within range.
