  • Patent number: 11069364
    Abstract: Described herein is a system for device arbitration using acoustic characteristics of a physical space, such as a user's household. The system generates a matrix of inter-device attenuation factors. The inter-device attenuation factors are determined using the attenuation experienced by a first device versus the attenuation experienced by a second device. Once the matrix is generated, an attenuation vector representing the attenuation corresponding to an input audio signal is determined and compared to the matrix. Based on the comparison, the system selects a device for further processing.

  • Publication number: 20210189652
    Abstract: A system for treating recycled cellulosic fibers to improve paper, board and tissue quality; the system involves fractionating recycled fibers into a short fiber portion and a long fiber portion. The short fiber portion is split into an original short fiber portion and a refinable portion. The refinable portion is processed into glue pulp. The glue pulp is refined to targeted, measured fiber properties. Varying amounts of the glue pulp, original short unrefined fibers, and long unrefined fibers are blended together to form an optimized slurry that is processed by a paper machine into an optimized recycled paper product. The process provides for improved drainage with the same or better paper properties allowing for cost reductions in fabrication.

  • Patent number: 10941520
    Abstract: A system for treating cellulosic fibers to improve paper, board and tissue quality; the system involves splitting fibers into an original portion having original fibers and a refinable portion. The refinable portion may further be fractionated by one or more fibers properties by a fiber fractionation system into a first fraction and a second fraction. The refinable portion as a whole, or a fractionated fraction thereof, is then refined to produce refined fibers. Varying amounts of the original unrefined fibers, refined fibers and possibly additionally fractionated unrefined fibers are blended together to form an optimized slurry that is processed by a paper machine into an optimized paper product. A master control system, fiber measurement system and optional fractionation maintenance system may be integrated with the overall system to regulate all processing.

  • Patent number: 10807723
    Abstract: An aircraft outflow valve with a heat exchanger is disclosed herein. The aircraft outflow valve can include a heat exchanger that includes an air flow path. Air can flow through the air flow path and exit the outflow valve through an opening at the end of the air flow path. Such airflow can regulate the internal pressure of the aircraft and can also dissipate heat from the outflow valve. The outflow valve can further include a liquid coolant flow path. The liquid coolant flow path can be coupled to liquid coolant lines of electronics of the aircraft. Thus, heat from the electronics of the aircraft can be dissipated through heat transfer between the coolant and the outflow valve, which is accordingly cooled by the airflow through the heat exchanger.

  • Publication number: 20200211554
    Abstract: This disclosure describes, in part, context-based device arbitration techniques to select a voice-enabled device from multiple voice-enabled devices to provide a response to a command included in a speech utterance of a user. In some examples, the context-driven arbitration techniques may include determining a ranked list of voice-enabled devices that are ranked based on audio signal metric values for audio signals generated by each voice-enabled device, and iteratively moving through the list to determine, based on device states of the voice-enabled devices, whether one of the voice-enabled devices can perform an action responsive to the command. If the voice-enabled devices that detected the speech utterance are unable to perform the action responsive to the command, all other voice-enabled devices associated with an account may be analyzed to determine whether one of the other voice-enabled devices can perform the action responsive to the command in the speech utterance.

  • Patent number: 10685652
    Abstract: This disclosure describes, in part, techniques for determining device groupings, or clusters, for multiple voice-enabled devices. The device clusters may be determined based on metadata data for audio signals (or audio data) generated by each of the multiple voice-enabled devices. For example, a remote system may analyze timestamp data for the audio signals received from the devices, and determine that the devices detected the same voice command of a user based on the timestamp data indicating that the audio signals were received within a threshold period of time from each other. Additionally, the remote system may analyze other metadata of the audio data, such as signal-to-noise (SNR) values, and determine that the SNR values are within a threshold value. The remote system may determine device clusters for the voice-enabled devices of a user based on these, and potentially other, types of metadata of the audio signals.
