  • Publication number: 20190200841
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is useful as a stored object detector and a method of detecting stored objects configured to capture an image a movable storage portion, and objects stored in the storage portion, and configured to acquire storage information including at least one of position, size and quantity of the stored object based on the captured image. In addition, disclosed herein is a dishwasher configured to identify at least storage area of dish stored in a dish storage basket. It is possible to estimate a position of a basket, although the number of feature points is small. Therefore, when installing a detection indicator corresponding to the feature point, which is separated from the general configuration, to the basket, it is not required to install a large number of detection indicator, and thus it is possible to improve the appearance of the dishwasher.

  • Publication number: 20190163799
    Abstract: A database management system (DBMS) performs, in response to a conversion request to convert a store format of a table in a database, a process (base type change process) for changing a store format indicated by information (base type) indicating the store format of the table to a store format according to the conversion request, and performs a data conversion process asynchronously with the aforementioned process. In an import process after the base type change process, the DBMS imports, into the table, a chunk in the store format indicated by the base type after change. In the data conversion process, the DBMS converts a chunk in a store format different from the store format indicated by the base type into a chunk in the store format indicated by the base type.

  • Publication number: 20170176084
    Abstract: A refrigerator includes a storage chamber, an evaporator configured to cool the storage chamber, and an air passage through which cold air generated by the evaporator flows. The air passage includes a blower fan configured to blow the cold air to the storage chamber, and a trap part in which warm air generated by a defrosting operation stays, such that warm air generated by the defrosting operation is prevented from being introduced into the inner space of the refrigerator through the air passage. The refrigerator reduces the defrosting operation time, efficiently prevents increase of the inner temperature of the refrigerator due to warm air during the defrosting operation, reduces a temperature difference in inner temperature of the refrigerator, and prevents food stored in the refrigerator from being rotten due to a temperature change.
