  • Publication number: 20210066714
    Abstract: Provided is a novel production method for producing silicon clathrate II. In the production method for producing silicon clathrate II, in a reaction system in which a Na—Si alloy containing Na and Si and an Na getter agent coexist so as not to be in contact with each other, the Na—Si alloy is heated and Na evaporated from the Na—Si alloy is thus caused to react with the Na getter agent to reduce an amount of Na in the Na—Si alloy.

  • Publication number: 20210042412
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus (2000) classifies each event that occurred in a target apparatus to be determined (10) either as an event (event of a first class) that also occurs in a standard apparatus (20) or as an event (event of a second class) that does not occur in the standard apparatus (20). Herein, a first model used for a determination with respect to an event that also occurs in the standard apparatus (20) and a second model used for a determination with respect to an event that does not occur in the standard apparatus (20) are used as models for determining whether an event that occurs in a target apparatus to be determined (10) is a target for warning. The information processing apparatus (2000) performs learning of the first model using an event of the first class. Further, the information processing apparatus (2000) performs learning of the second model using an event of the second class.
