  • Patent number: 11901935
    Abstract: The present application relates to wireless communications suitable for smart manufacturing and industrial automation. In particular, the application proposes a wireless communication device (UE) and a network device (BS), in particular suitable for cyclic communication. The BS is configured to provide a first information defining a hopping sequence to a UE, and to provide a second information to the UE defining when the hopping sequence should be repeated, in particular periodically repeated. The UE is accordingly configured to receive the first information from the BS, and to receive the second information from the BS. The hopping sequence specifies at least two spatial resources and/or at least two radio resources, which the UE is configured to use for transmissions to and/or from the BS.

  • Patent number: 11902817
    Abstract: A device may receive input data associated with a wireless network, and may extract data from the input data to generate extracted data. The device may create PRB images based on the extracted data, and may process the PRB images, with a first model, to associate labels with each of the PRB images. The device may process the labels and the PRB images, with a second model, to identify potential issues associated with the PRB images, and may process data identifying the potential issues associated with the PRB images, with a third model, to compress the data identifying the potential issues into an array. The device may process the array, with a fourth model, to determine probability scores associated with the potential issues, and may select a potential issue with a greatest probability score as a detected issue. The device may perform actions based on the detected issue.

  • Patent number: 11880957
    Abstract: One example method involves operations for receiving a request to transform an input image into a target image. Operations further include providing the input image to a machine learning model trained to adapt images. Training the machine learning model includes accessing training data having a source domain of images and a target domain of images with a target style. Training further includes using a pre-trained generative model to generate an adapted source domain of adapted images having the target style. The adapted source domain is generated by determining a rate of change for parameters of the target style, generating weighted parameters by applying a weight to each of the parameters based on their respective rate of change, and applying the weighted parameters to the source domain. Additionally, operations include using the machine learning model to generate the target image by modifying parameters of the input image using the target style.

  • Publication number: 20230405536
    Abstract: An inline static mixer includes an outer tube and an inner tube positioned inside the outer tube and arranged coaxially with respect to the outer tube with a space between the inner and outer tubes. The inner tube is operable to receive and convey a hydrocarbon stream and the outer tube is operable to receive and convey a diluent stream. At least one baffle extends from the inner tube toward the outer tube and through at least a portion of the space that is operable to generate a twisted diluent flow from the diluent stream. The twisted diluent flow and the hydrocarbon stream are mixed downstream of an outlet of the inner tube with the twisted diluent flow forming a boundary layer along an internal surface of the outer tube to minimize fouling from liquid or liquid droplets of the hydrocarbon stream after mixing.
