  • Publication number: 20200229251
    Abstract: Systems and methods to configure sidelink resources in a dual connectivity operation are provided. In some aspect, a method comprising: transmitting, from a user equipment (UE), a first message to a first evolved Node B (eNB), wherein the first message indicates a request to establish a sidelink communication; receiving, at the UE, a second message from the first eNB, wherein the second message indicates a frequency that is used by a secondary evolved Node B (SeNB); transmitting, from the UE, a measurement result to the first eNB; and receiving, at the UE, sidelink configuration information from the first eNB, wherein the sidelink configuration information indicates sidelink resources managed by the secondary eNB.

  • Publication number: 20190303776
    Abstract: A method and system for teaching an artificial intelligent agent where the agent can be placed in a state that it would like it to learn how to achieve. By giving the agent several examples, it can learn to identify what is important about these example states. Once the agent has the ability to recognize a goal configuration, it can use that information to then learn how to achieve the goal states on its own. An agent may be provided with positive and negative examples to demonstrate a goal configuration. Once the agent has learned certain goal configurations, the agent can learn policies and skills that achieve the learned goal configuration. The agent may create a collection of these policies and skills from which to select based on a particular command or state.

  • Patent number: 10422514
    Abstract: A light source module includes a plurality of light sources mounted in at least one block. The block includes a mating surface for mating the at least one block to an adjacent block, and a plurality of mounting pads for respectively mounting the plurality of light sources, said mounting pads occupying multiple planes in a direction normal to a direction of light emission from the light sources. The mating surface is parallel to the direction of light emission from the light sources. Multiple blocks may be combined by joining the mating surface of a first block with a protrusion extending beyond the mating surface of an adjacent block. When the blocks are combined in this fashion, the mounting pads positioned in the multiple planes overlap in a viewpoint direction along an axis normal to the mounting pads. In this manner, light sources do not impede light emission from adjacent light sources.

  • Patent number: 9571659
    Abstract: An embodiment includes a non-transitory computer-readable medium with programming code executable by a processor to perform operations including accessing a scheduled time and teleconference contact information associated with a teleconference calendar event. The operations include determining whether an operator is operating a vehicle based on synchronization between a mobile device and an abstraction and communication device (device) interfaced with the vehicle. When an actual time is within a threshold of the scheduled time and the operator is operating the vehicle, the operations include determining whether the operator is a participant of a teleconference. If so, the operations include extracting the teleconference contact information from the teleconference calendar event. The operations include communicating a prompt to join the teleconference and receiving a confirmation to join the teleconference.

  • Patent number: 9410813
    Abstract: Course-based place searching systems and methods are described. In an embodiment, a system for performing a course-based place search may include a navigation device, a processing device, and a display. The navigation device may be configured to track a location and a course of the vehicle. The processing device may be communicatively coupled to the navigation device and may be configured to request places from a resource based at least in part on the location of the vehicle and the search criterion and to return a first one or more places received from the resource to an occupant of the vehicle. The first one or more places may be based at least in part on the course of the vehicle. The display may be communicatively coupled to the processing device. The first one or more places may be displayed on the display.

  • Patent number: 9378286
    Abstract: Automatically marking locations of user interest in media content is disclosed. Data that describes user interaction with media content is analyzed to determine locations of potential interest. For each of the locations of potential interest, the data is analyzed to determine whether user interest satisfies a criterion for establishing a mark for the location. Marks are determined for those locations that satisfy the criterion. A mark includes a description for a given location and information that allows the given location to be automatically presented to a user upon selection of the description. In another aspect, extrinsic data that is separate from a piece of media content is analyzed to determine whether moments of high user interest might exist in the piece of media content. Then, the piece of media content is scanned to find locations in the media content that correspond to the moments.
