  • Publication number: 20200046285
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for supporting detection of a sign of cognitive decline is disclosed. In the method, a reference set of conversational data recorded for an individual and one or more sets of conversational data recorded for the individual on different days from the reference set are obtained. The method includes evaluating at least a temporal separation between conversations corresponding to the reference set and each of the one or more sets of the conversational data determine a value of the temporal separation. The method also includes determining topic similarity between the reference set and each of the one or more sets of the conversational data. A feature is generated for the individual based, at least in part, on relationship between the value and the topic similarity, and the computed feature is then sent as a message corresponding to a diagnosis.

  • Publication number: 20190304484
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for supporting detection of a sign of cognitive decline is disclosed. In the method, two or more sets of conversation data of a target individual are obtained. The method includes combining at least two sets of the conversation data corresponding to plural different days to generate a combined set and extracting one or more linguistic features that represent vocabulary richness from at least the combined set. A feature that characterizes word repetitiveness in conversations across the plural different days of the target individual is calculated from the one or more linguistic features. The feature that characterizes the word repetitiveness is output.

  • Patent number: 10309328
    Abstract: An exhaust emission control system of an engine is provided, which includes a NOx catalyst disposed in an exhaust passage for storing NOx within exhaust gas when an air-fuel ratio of the exhaust gas is lean, and reducing the stored NOx when the air-fuel ratio is approximately stoichiometric or rich. A processor executes a NOx reduction controlling module for performing, when the NOx stored amount exceeds a given amount, a NOx reduction control in which a fuel injector performs a post injection of fuel to continuously control the air-fuel ratio to a target ratio so that the stored NOx is reduced to be below a given amount, the target air-fuel ratio being a ratio at which the stored NOx is reducible, the post injection causing the injected fuel to combust inside a cylinder, the execution of the control permitted when an engine load is within a medium load range.

  • Patent number: 8035058
    Abstract: A region surrounded by two gate wiring and two drain wiring includes pixels and when there is a defect of short-circuit in adjacent pixel electrodes, the short-circuited portion is removed by irradiating a laser via a mask having a transmission pattern, which corresponds to a pattern of the gate wiring, drain wiring and pixel electrodes in the short-circuited portion. The above short-circuited portion is identified and removed in comparison to a normal pattern, by use of information from an inspection apparatus, and the pattern defect formed on the substrate is automatically repaired. By applying the above method to a manufacturing process of display apparatus, in particular, to a resist pattern forming process, a display apparatus having a highly qualified display property may be achieved.
