  • Patent number: 12039622
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer-readable storage media, for course assignment by a multi-learning management system. The system can receive data from a variety of individual learning management systems offering different courses. The system can use feedback data of a user base for the system to cluster courses by predicted difficulty, and generate, from the clusters, a sequence of courses for a target user. The sequence of courses can include at least one course from each cluster, with courses from a first cluster with a lower overall difficulty measure preceding courses in a second cluster with a higher overall difficulty measure in the sequence, wherein the starting cluster can be calculated according to the estimated level of the target user.

  • Publication number: 20230409605
    Abstract: In some implementations, a device may identify respective sets of unique values for multiple dimensions of a multidimensional data structure. The device may identify a plurality of subsets of permutations of a set of permutations of the unique values. The plurality of subsets of permutations are to be processed in parallel. The device may obtain, based on processing the plurality of subsets of permutations in parallel, respective data associated with each permutation of the plurality of subsets of permutations. The data for a permutation, of the plurality of subsets of permutations, is obtained based on respective unique values for the permutation that are determined independently of another permutation of the plurality of subsets of permutations.

  • Patent number: 11849179
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for characterizing audience engagement with one or more characters in a media content item. In some embodiments, an audience engagement characterization application processes sensor data; such as video data capturing the faces of one or more audience members consuming a media content item, to generate an audience emotion signal. The characterization application also processes the media content item to generate a character emotion signal associated with one or more characters in the media content item. Then, the characterization application determines an audience engagement score based on an amount of alignment and/or misalignment between the audience emotion signal and the character emotion signal.

  • Patent number: 11781256
    Abstract: Various examples are provided related to transporting and sewing material in, e.g., automation of sewing robots. Multiple pieces of layered materials can be transported on a flat planar surface while maintaining the material layer's position and orientation relative to one another during a sewing procedure of these materials along any arbitrary seam shape. In one example, among others, a method includes positioning a second piece of material on a first piece of material located on a sewing plane, positioning a material holding apparatus over the pieces of material to secure position and orientation between the pieces of material, locating the pieces of material with respect to an automated sewing machine by repositioning the material holding apparatus, and sewing the second piece of material to the first piece of material. The methods can eliminate the need of custom-made templates for sewing arbitrarily shaped seams with an automated sewing machine.
