  • Publication number: 20200279180
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computing device includes processing circuitry to predict outcomes of unresolved customer support cases. For example, the processing circuitry: receives a request to predict an outcome of an unresolved customer support case; extracts a set of features from a case record for the unresolved case, including a set of categorical features and a set of textual features; encodes the set of categorical and textual features into numerical representations; predicts the outcome of the unresolved customer support case using a trained case prediction model, wherein the trained case prediction model generates a predicted outcome based on the encoded categorical and textual features; and performs a corresponding customer support action based on the predicted outcome of the unresolved customer support case.

  • Publication number: 20200101222
    Abstract: A method of controlling an insulin infusion device involves controlling the device to operate in an automatic basal insulin delivery mode, obtaining a blood glucose measurement for the user, and initiating a correction bolus procedure when: the measurement exceeds a correction bolus threshold value; and a maximum basal insulin infusion rate is reached during the automatic basal insulin delivery mode. The correction bolus procedure calculates an initial correction bolus amount, and scales the initial amount to obtain a final correction bolus amount, such that a predicted future blood glucose level resulting from simulated delivery of the final correction bolus amount exceeds a low blood glucose threshold level. The final amount is delivered to the user during operation in the automatic basal insulin delivery mode.

  • Publication number: 20200101221
    Abstract: Medical devices and related systems and operating methods are provided. A method of operating an infusion device capable of delivering fluid influencing a physiological condition to a patient involves obtaining an event indication, such as a meal indication, determining an initial bolus amount based on the event indication, and determining predicted values for the physiological condition of the patient during a time window into the future based at least in part on the initial bolus amount. When the predicted values violate a threshold during the time window, the control system identifies an adjusted bolus amount that results in the predicted values for the physiological condition satisfying the threshold during the time window from within a search space defined by the initial bolus amount and operates an actuation arrangement of the infusion device to deliver the adjusted bolus amount of the fluid to the patient.

  • Publication number: 20200043483
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer-readable storage media, for speech recognition using attention-based sequence-to-sequence models. In some implementations, audio data indicating acoustic characteristics of an utterance is received. A sequence of feature vectors indicative of the acoustic characteristics of the utterance is generated. The sequence of feature vectors is processed using a speech recognition model that has been trained using a loss function that uses N-best lists of decoded hypotheses, the speech recognition model including an encoder, an attention module, and a decoder. The encoder and decoder each include one or more recurrent neural network layers. A sequence of output vectors representing distributions over a predetermined set of linguistic units is obtained. A transcription for the utterance is obtained based on the sequence of output vectors. Data indicating the transcription of the utterance is provided.

  • Publication number: 20200027444
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer-readable media, for performing speech recognition using sequence-to-sequence models. An automated speech recognition (ASR) system receives audio data for an utterance and provides features indicative of acoustic characteristics of the utterance as input to an encoder. The system processes an output of the encoder using an attender to generate a context vector and generates speech recognition scores using the context vector and a decoder trained using a training process that selects at least one input to the decoder with a predetermined probability. An input to the decoder during training is selected between input data based on a known value for an element in a training example, and input data based on an output of the decoder for the element in the training example. A transcription is generated for the utterance using word elements selected based on the speech recognition scores. The transcription is provided as an output of the ASR system.
