  • Publication number: 20230309504
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a collapsible and portable pet crate has a rear, top, bottom, folding side, and front panels. The assembled crate may be collapsed by lifting the top panel and pressing the forward panel towards the rear panel as the side panels fold, folding the top panel over the front panel, and then folding the bottom panel over the front panel. Sliding hinges may be provided at the junction between the bottom plate and the rear plate to enable a smaller profile for the collapsed crate. Latches may be provided to secure the crate in the assembled and collapsed configurations. The rear wall may include wall mounting attachment(s), for example, magnetic assemblies that can be mated with another magnetic mounting on the user's wall for easy storage and/or enable collapsing the crate in much the same way as a Murphy bed.

  • Publication number: 20230197069
    Abstract: Speech recognition may be improved by generating and using a topic specific language model. A topic specific language model may be created by performing an initial pass on an audio signal using a generic or basis language model. A speech recognition device may then determine topics relating to the audio signal based on the words identified in the initial pass and retrieve a corpus of text relating to those topics. Using the retrieved corpus of text, the speech recognition device may create a topic specific language model. In one example, the speech recognition device may adapt or otherwise modify the generic language model based on the retrieved corpus of text.
