  • Patent number: 12044970
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a flexographic printing plate for printing image patterns including one or more uniform image regions includes defining a repeating tile having a plurality of different feature shapes positioned in a pattern of pseudo-random feature locations. A plate formation pattern corresponding to the image pattern is determined wherein the repeating tile is applied in a tiled arrangement to the uniform image regions. The plate formation pattern is used to form a flexographic printing plate, wherein regions of the flexographic printing plate corresponding to the uniform image regions of the image pattern include a pattern of raised features in positions corresponding to the feature positions in the repeating tile.

  • Patent number: 12045566
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for providing an untrained machine learning model with a combined message and an appropriate emoji reaction icon. An embodiment operates by receiving a first and second user message. The first and second user comprises a first and second user text or a first and second user-inserted emoji reaction icon, respectively. The first or second user text is associated with a first or second system-specified emoji reaction icon, respectively. Thereafter, the first user message is determined to be associated with the second user message, the combined message is created based on the first and second messages, and the appropriate emoji reaction is identified as associated with the combined message. The combined message and associated appropriate emoji reaction icon are then sent to an untrained machine learning model configured to for training.

  • Patent number: 12014266
    Abstract: A cognitive modeling system uses a cognitive model to efficiently execute a variety of tasks over large datasets. The cognitive modeling system receives an input dataset and a query specifying a task to execute in relation to the input dataset. The cognitive modeling system determines an amount of similarity between each child node of the cognitive model and one or more of the input dataset and the query, selects a particular child node with the most determined amount of similarity, and executes the task using the particular child node. The task execution includes searching the particular child node for a connected set of neurons that match a particular part of the input dataset by a threshold amount, and applying an output that is associated with the connected set of neurons to the particular part of the input dataset.

  • Publication number: 20240078711
    Abstract: A multi-dimensional encoder (“MDE”) receives a file with different data points. Each data point is defined with uncompressed multi-dimensional data. The multi-dimensional data may include multiple elements for defining a data point position (e.g., a multi-dimensional position including x, y, and/or z coordinates), color values of the data point (e.g., red, green, and blue), and/or other data point attributes. The MDE assigns an index to each data point or each data point element, and maps the data points to a frequency domain based on a frequency with which values occur in two or more of the elements (e.g., multiple dimensions). The MDE generates a line that represents the frequency, and provides a compressed file format to a requesting device that includes the line and different sets of indices that are associated with different frequencies represented by the line.

  • Publication number: 20240067164
    Abstract: An erratic driver detection system for a host vehicle. The system includes a sensor configured to measure a distance between the host vehicle and a detected neighboring vehicle, and output sensor data. The system also includes an electronic processor connected to the sensor and configured to build an expected driving behavior model and a target driving behavior model corresponding to the detected neighboring vehicle based on the sensor data. The target driving behavior model includes past, present, and predicted trajectories of the detected neighboring vehicle. The electronic processor is also configured to determine a difference between the target driving behavior model and the expected driving behavior model, identify an instance of erratic driving with respect to the detected neighboring vehicle based on the difference. In response to identifying the instance of erratic driving, the electronic processor controls the vehicle to perform a safety action.
