  • Publication number: 20210350795
    Abstract: A method for generating a prosodic representation includes receiving a text utterance having one or more words. Each word has at least one syllable having at least one phoneme. The method also includes generating, using a Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) model, a sequence of wordpiece embeddings and selecting an utterance embedding for the text utterance, the utterance embedding representing an intended prosody. Each wordpiece embedding is associated with one of the one or more words of the text utterance. For each syllable, using the selected utterance embedding and a prosody model that incorporates the BERT model, the method also includes generating a corresponding prosodic syllable embedding for the syllable based on the wordpiece embedding associated with the word that includes the syllable and predicting a duration of the syllable by encoding linguistic features of each phoneme of the syllable with the corresponding prosodic syllable embedding for the syllable.

  • Patent number: 10498610
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer program product are provided for utilizing radio access network (RAN) information and mobile backhaul (MBH) network information to assess network site performance. In operation, a system receives information associated with a radio access network. Additionally, the system receives information associated with a mobile backhaul network corresponding to the radio access network. The system correlates the information associated with the radio access network with the information associated with the mobile backhaul network to create correlated information. Further, the system calculates scores for the correlated information. Moreover, the system calculates a score for a site associated with the mobile backhaul network utilizing the scores for the correlated information.

  • Patent number: 9140576
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention can provide systems and methods for controlling the load of demand response metering devices. According to one embodiment of the invention, a system can be provided. The system can be operable to receive a load limit, store the load limit, determine a load demand of a location, provide an alarm when the load demand is greater than the load limit, and restrict electricity to the location when the load demand remains greater than the load limit for a predetermined amount of time.

  • Patent number: 8958620
    Abstract: A method for cardiac imaging for determining a myocardial region of interest (ROI) is disclosed. The method includes acquiring functional imaging data of a subject, where the functional imaging data includes at least the myocardium. A ROI encompassing at most the myocardium from the acquired functional imaging data, and diagnostic parameters relating to the myocardium are estimated and quantified based on the determined ROI. In one embodiment, the ROI is determined from a projection image representation utilizing histogram based thresholding and ray casting based localization to determine the extents of the ROI. In another embodiment, the ROI is determined from a volumetric image representation utilizing clustering Manhattan distance based cleaning to determine cardiac angles used for reorienting the left ventricle.
