  • Patent number: 9658937
    Abstract: Various aspects provide systems and methods for optimizing hardware monitoring on a computing device. A computing device may receive a monitoring request to monitor a portion of code or data within a process executing on the computing device. The computing device may generate from the monitoring request a first monitoring configuration parameter for a first hardware monitoring component in the computing device and may identify a non-optimal event pattern that occurs while the first hardware monitoring component monitors the portion of code or data according to the first monitoring configuration parameter. The computing device may apply a transformation to the portion of code or data and reconfigure the first hardware monitoring component by modifying the first monitoring configuration parameter in response to the transformation of the portion of code or data.

  • Publication number: 20170083827
    Abstract: Embodiments include computing devices, apparatus, and methods implemented by the apparatus for accelerating machine learning on a computing device. Raw data may be received in the computing device from a raw data source device. The apparatus may identify key features as two dimensional matrices of the raw data such that the key features are mutually exclusive from each other. The key features may be translated into key feature vectors. The computing device may generate a feature vector from at least one of the key feature vectors. The computing device may receive a first partial output resulting from an execution of a basic linear algebra subprogram (BLAS) operation using the feature vector and a weight factor. The first partial output may be combined with a plurality of partial outputs to produce an output matrix. Receiving the raw data on the computing device may include receiving streaming raw data.

  • Patent number: 9292685
    Abstract: Aspect methods, systems and devices may be configured to create/capture checkpoints without significantly impacting the performance, power consumption, or responsiveness of the mobile device. An observer module of the mobile device may instrument or coordinate various application programming interfaces (APIs) at various levels of the mobile device system and constantly monitor the mobile device (via a low power process, background processes, etc.) to identify the normal operation patterns of the mobile device and/or to identify behaviors that are not consistent with previously computed normal operation patterns. The mobile device may store mobile device state information in a memory as a stored checkpoint when it determines that the mobile device behaviors are consistent with normal operation patterns, and upload a previously stored checkpoint to a backup storage system when it determines that the mobile device behaviors are not consistent with normal operation patterns.

  • Patent number: 8166053
    Abstract: Schema-driven XML parsing techniques allow an XML parser to optimize its parsing process by composing parse and to dynamically generate parsing code components based on XML schema definition for the targeted XML document. These techniques reduce the XML parsing time and reduce the memory requirement during parsing process. Further, a reconfigurable parser is provided which is guided during parsing of the XML document by XML element lexicographical information and state transition information extracted from a schema associated with the XML document. Pre-allocated element object pools may be provided based on the schema analysis to reduce the requirements for dynamic memory allocation and de-allocation operations.
