  • Patent number: 11995381
    Abstract: Computing devices, computer-readable storage media, and computer-implemented methods are disclosed for prediction of capacity. In a central tier, central-tier benchmark values are generated from benchmark testing performed on different test configurations in a reference execution environment. In a deployment tier, deployment-tier benchmark values are generated from benchmark testing performed on a baseline deployed configuration in many execution environments. A sizing model is learned from the central-tier benchmark values to predict execution platform requirements given a set of workload input parameters. A performance model is learned from the deployment-tier and the central-tier benchmark values to predict a performance delta value reflecting relative performance between a particular execution environment and the reference execution environment. The performance delta value is used to adjust predicted execution platform requirements to tailor the prediction to a particular execution environment.

  • Patent number: 11986958
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for using skill templates for robotic demonstration learning. One of the methods includes receiving a skill template for a task to be performed by a robot, wherein the skill template defines a state machine having a plurality of subtasks and one or more respective transition conditions between one or more of the subtasks. Local demonstration data for a demonstration subtask of the skill template is received, where the local demonstration data is generated from a user demonstrating how to perform the demonstration subtask with the robot. A machine learning model is refined for the demonstration subtask and the skill template is executed on the robot, causing the robot to transition through the state machine defined by the skill template to perform the task.

  • Publication number: 20240157554
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for using simulated local demonstration data for robotic demonstration learning. One of the methods includes receiving perceptual data of a workcell of a robot to be configured to execute a task according to a skill template, wherein the skill template specifies one or more subtasks required to perform the skill, wherein at least one of the subtasks is a demonstration subtask that relies on learning visual characteristics of the workcell. A virtual model is generated of a portion of the workcell. A training system generates simulated local demonstration data from the virtual model of the portion of the workcell and tunes a base control policy for the demonstration subtask using the simulated local demonstration data generated from the virtual model of the portion of the workcell.

  • Patent number: 11978713
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to a flip chip assembly having a bump that reduces stress levels in a low-k dielectric layer in the flip chip. Rather than having a single, large area plateau that interfaces with a large corresponding opening of an insulating layer in the flip chip, the bump includes a plurality of much smaller pillars that interface with a corresponding plurality of openings in the insulating layer. In so doing, the low-k layer within the flip chip experiences much less stress and hence, fewer failures.

    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for detecting a failed temperature sensor within a data storage device and for mitigating the loss of the sensor are provided. One such data storage device includes a non-volatile memory (NVM), a set of temperature sensors, and a processor coupled to the NVM and the temperature sensors. The processor is configured to detect failure of one of the temperature sensors and obtain temperature data from the other temperature sensors. The processor is further configured to estimate, based on the obtained temperature data, the temperature at the failed sensor, and then control at least one function of the data storage device based on the estimated temperature, such as controlling entry into a Read Only mode. In some examples, the processor estimates the temperature at the failed sensor or at various virtual sensor locations using pre-determined formulas having offsets and coefficients determined during an initial machine learning calibration procedure.
