  • Publication number: 20210168044
    Abstract: A system and related methods for making distributed, autonomous decisions on the management of network traffic and data are provided. The disclosed system and methods increasingly become smarter and faster over time based on the accumulated data across the network, and any data science or decision science associated with the system can be updated or modified via remote, autonomous updates. The system can comprise computing devices and systems across multiple layers of the network, wherein each layer of the network can comprise a plurality of nodes. Each node of the network can be enhanced or embedded with the Smart Distributed system, and the Smart Distributed system can provide each node of the network the ability to apply data or decision science to any data in real or near real-time.

  • Publication number: 20210134295
    Abstract: Typical graphical user interfaces and predefined data fields limit the interaction between a person and a computing system. An oral communication device and a data enablement platform are provided for ingesting oral conversational data from people, and using machine learning to provide intelligence. At the front end, an oral conversational bot, or chatbot, interacts with a user. On the backend, the data enablement platform has a computing architecture that ingests data from various external data sources as well as data from internal applications and databases. These data and algorithms are applied to surface new data, identify trends, provide recommendations, infer new understanding, predict actions and events, and automatically act on this computed information. The chatbot then provides audio data that reflects the information computed by the data enablement platform. The system and the devices, for example, are adaptable to various industries.

  • Publication number: 20210063972
    Abstract: Biological human-computer interfaces are used to control devices, such a robotic limbs, using brain signals, nerve signals and muscle signals. These interfaces are sometimes called brain-computing interfaces. The learning process for a user to control devices using these interfaces is cumbersome. A computing platform is provided that includes a library of human model templates that are used to take biological inputs signals to generate outputs that control the device. Different templates are more appropriate for users of different attributes, such as demographic attributes. The computing platform collects data from multiple other users with these interfaces and devices in order to calibrate the human model templates. The calibrated human model templates are then published to the individual users, so that they can more accurately control their devices using their biological input signals.

  • Publication number: 20200156701
    Abstract: A control device for a steer-by-wire type vehicle calculates a target turn angle being represented as a function of a steering angle of a steering wheel, and controls a turning device such that a turn angle of a wheel becomes the target turn angle. A variation range of the steering angle includes: an effective steering range in which the steering angle is an effective maximum steering angle or smaller; and an adjustment steering range in which the steering angle is between the effective maximum steering angle and a predetermined maximum steering angle. The target turn angle calculated according to the effective maximum steering angle is an effective maximum turn angle. The control device variably sets the function according to a road surface condition such that the effective maximum turn angle in a case of a low-? condition is smaller than that in a case of a high-? condition.
