  • Publication number: 20240152756
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method of training an autoencoder neural network includes determining autoencoder design parameters for the autoencoder neural network, including an input image size for an input image, a compression ratio for compression of the input image into a latent vector, and a latent vector size for the latent vector. The input image size is determined based on a resolution of training images and a size of target features to be detected. The compression ratio is determined based on entropy of the training images. The latent vector size is determined based on the compression ratio. The method further includes training the autoencoder neural network based on the autoencoder design parameters and the training dataset, and then saving the trained autoencoder neural network on a storage device.

  • Patent number: 11943319
    Abstract: Systems and methods for isolating applications associated with multiple tenants within a computing platform receive a request from a client associated with a tenant for running an application on a computing platform. Hosts connected to the platform are associated with a network address and configured to run applications associated with multiple tenants. A host is identified based at least in part on the request. One or more broadcast domain(s) including the identified hosts are generated. The broadcast domains are isolated in the network at a data link layer. A unique tenant identification number corresponding to the tenant is assigned to the broadcast domains. In response to launching the application on the host: the unique tenant identification number is assigned to the launched application and is added to the network address of the host; and the network address of the host is sent to the client associated with the tenant.

  • Patent number: 11911736
    Abstract: An exemplary compounding method of controlling a compounding device to prepare an admixture of at least two distinct material sources can include examining material source solutions for incompatibility of the ingredients and operating a first and a second pump to prevent one of the incompatible source solutions from entering a common flow path. The processing method can detect degradation of a fluid line by evaluating one or more of calibration error rate data, cumulative volumetric flow data, or cumulative pump operation data. The processing method can also selectively transfer a first group of source solutions using the first pump, receiving pump data from one or more sensors that sense actions of the pumps, applying fluid correction factors and calculating discrete pump movements, the pump movements being indicative of an amount of source solution displacement by a pump, and operating the pumps to selectively dispense the source solution amounts according to a preparation order.

  • Publication number: 20230254282
    Abstract: A content filtering system and method includes receiving in a network device in a network from a user device, a user selected set of rules identifying a set of URLs to be blocked. The set of rules are loaded into the network device. The network device receives from the user device a request to access a specified URL. A determination is made at the network device whether the specified URL is in the user selected set of rules. If the specified URL is in the user selected set of rules, then the specified URL is blocked.
