  • Patent number: 11934289
    Abstract: A graph-based data multi-operation system includes a data multi-operation management subsystem coupled to an application and accelerator subsystems. The data multi-operation management subsystem receives a data multi-operation graph from the application that identifies first data and defines operations for performance on the first data to transform the first data into second data. The data multi-operation management subsystem assigns each of the operations to at least one of the accelerator systems, and configures the accelerator subsystems to perform the operations in a sequence that transforms the first data into the second data, When the data multi-operation management subsystem determine a completion status for the performance of the operations by the accelerator subsystems, it transmits a completion status communication to the application that indicates the completion status of the performance of the plurality of operations by the plurality of accelerator subsystems.

  • Publication number: 20230207131
    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide a wound management system and method for predicting and avoiding wounds in a healthcare facility. The method includes collecting data relating to a patient’s health and applying a machine learning model to the data relating to the patient’s health to predict a first probability that the patient will sustain a first wound while the patient is at a first healthcare facility. The method also includes determining an action that reduces the first probability that the patient will sustain the first wound and communicating, to the first healthcare facility, a message indicating that the action should be taken to reduce the first probability that the patient will sustain the first wound while the patient is at the first healthcare facility.
