  • Patent number: 10409909
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for building a dictionary of words from combinations of symbols generated based on input data. A neuro-linguistic behavior recognition system includes a neuro-linguistic module that generates a linguistic model that describes data input from a source (e.g., video data, SCADA data, etc.). To generate words for the linguistic model, a lexical analyzer component in the neuro-linguistic module receives a stream of symbols, each symbol generated based on an ordered stream of normalized vectors generated from input data. The lexical analyzer component determines words from combinations of the symbols based on a hierarchical learning model having one or more levels. Each level indicates a length of the words to be identified at that level. Statistics are evaluated for the words identified at each level. The lexical analyzer component identifies one or more of the words having statistical significance.

  • Patent number: 10409295
    Abstract: An electronic device manufacturing system includes a mass flow controller (MFC) that has a thermal flow sensor. The thermal flow sensor may measure a mass flow rate and may include a sensor tube having an inner surface coated with a material to form an inner barrier layer. The inner barrier layer may prevent or substantially reduce the likelihood of a corrosive reaction from occurring on the inner surface, which may prevent or reduce the likelihood of the MFC drifting beyond the MFC's mass flow rate accuracy specifications. This may improve the repeatability of flow detection by the MFC. Methods of measuring and controlling a mass flow rate in an electronic device manufacturing system are also provided, as are other aspects.

  • Publication number: 20190242815
    Abstract: A numerical characterization method for the dispersion state of carbon nanotubes based on fractal dimension is invented. In this method, a SEM image of the dispersion state of carbon nanotube is obtained first, and then is binarized by the ImageJ software to extract the boundary of individual carbon nanotubes or carbon nanotubes agglomerates, and thereby calculating the fractal dimension of the processed image with the assistance of the box-count algorithm. The value of fractal dimension represents quantitatively the abundant information contained in the dispersion state of carbon nanotubes, which is capable of realizing the numerical characterization of the dispersion state of carbon nanotubes. The invention quantifies the dispersion state of carbon nanotubes, and provides a powerful strategy for controlling, comparison and prediction of macro-properties of carbon nanotube based composites.

  • Patent number: 10373062
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for generating a sequence of symbols based on input data for a neuro-linguistic model. The model may be used by a behavior recognition system to analyze the input data. A mapper component of a neuro-linguistic module in the behavior recognition system receives one or more normalized vectors generated from the input data. The mapper component generates one or more clusters based on a statistical distribution of the normalized vectors. The mapper component evaluates statistics and identifies statistically relevant clusters. The mapper component assigns a distinct symbol to each of the identified clusters.

  • Patent number: 10374667
    Abstract: The present invention employs a pilot scheme for frequency division multiple access (FDM) communication systems, such as single carrier FDM communication systems. A given transmit time interval will include numerous traffic symbols and two or more short pilot symbols, which are spaced apart from one another by at least one traffic symbol and will have a Fourier transform length that is less than the Fourier transform length of any given traffic symbol. Multiple transmitters will generate pilot information and modulate the pilot information onto sub-carriers of the short pilot symbols in an orthogonal manner. Each transmitter may use different sub-carriers within the time and frequency domain, which is encompassed by the short pilot symbols within the transmit time interval. Alternatively, each transmitter may uniquely encode the pilot information using a unique code division multiplexed code and modulate the encoded pilot information onto common sub-carriers of the short pilot symbols.
