  • Publication number: 20200134373
    Abstract: A machine learning device includes a state variable acquiring section, a teaching data acquiring section, and a learned model generating section. The state variable acquiring section acquires, as state variables: feature information that is information regarding a feature of an actual printed matter on which printing has been actually performed by an image forming apparatus; medium information that is information regarding a print medium used in the actual printed matter; and first control information that is information regarding control performed when the actual printed matter has been outputted. The teaching data acquiring section acquires, as teaching data, second control information that is information regarding control that causes the feature information to fall within a predetermined threshold. The learned model generating section generates a learned model by performing machine learning on the basis of the pieces of information acquired by the state variable acquiring section and the teaching data.

  • Publication number: 20060023252
    Abstract: A print file having print data is transmitted to corresponding image forming apparatuses. A print management section manages first information that identifies a print file and second information that addresses an image forming apparatus. A print file monitoring section monitors a print file memory to detect whether a print file identified by the first information has been created. When said print file monitoring section determines that the print file has been created, a print file obtaining section obtains print data for the print file from the print file memory and the first information from said print management section. A transmitter obtains the second information from said print management section that corresponds to the first information obtained through said print file obtaining section. The transmitter transmits the print data for the print file to the image forming apparatus addressed by the second information.
