  • Patent number: 10476896
    Abstract: Malicious threat detection through time-series graph analysis, in which a data analysis device receives a data file comprising multiple log data entries. The log data entries include parameters associated with a computer network event in a computing network. The data analysis device produces a graphical model of the computing network based on at least one parameter included in the log data. The data analysis device also identifies a parameter associated with a node of the computer network represented by the graphical model, and performs a time-series analysis on the parameter. The data analysis device further determines, based on the time-series analysis on the parameter, at least one of an anomalous event associated with the computing network or a malicious event associated with the computing network.

  • Publication number: 20190303265
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and system are provided for diagnosing a processor executing a stream of instructions by causing the processor to execute the stream of instructions in a sequence of stages with a diagnostic exception being taken between each stage. The method involves controlling the processor in a current stage, when a point is reached where the diagnostic exception is to be taken, to store in a storage location type indicator information comprising a type indicator for a current instruction in the stream and a type indicator for a next instruction in the stream. The diagnostic exception is then taken, causing a diagnostic operation to be performed which includes accessing the type indicator information from the storage location and, dependent on the type indicator for the current instruction and the type indicator for the next instruction, determining control information to identify at least one trigger condition for a next diagnostic exception.

  • Patent number: 10432914
    Abstract: A graphics processing system includes a graphics processing pipeline, which includes a primitive generation stage and a pixel processing stage. The graphics processing system is arranged to process input data in the primitive generation stage to produce first primitive data associated with a first view of a scene and second primitive data associated with a second view of the scene. The graphics processing system is arranged to process the first primitive data in the pixel processing stage to produce first pixel-processed data associated with the first view. The graphics processing system is arranged to determine, for second pixel-processed data associated with the second view, whether to use the first pixel-processed data as the second pixel-processed data or whether to process the second primitive data in the pixel processing stage to produce the second pixel-processed data, and perform additional processing in the graphics processing pipeline based on the determining.

  • Publication number: 20180372242
    Abstract: The present invention relates to fluid control and management. In particular, it relates to valves or regulators for controlling a flow of fluid, such as, but not limited to, taps and faucets. We will describe a fluid control valve comprising a valve body having an inlet, for operative connection to a supply of pressurised fluid, and an outlet and defining a fluid flow path therebetween. A first valve is adjustable under the control of a first valve actuator between a first, or closed, position in which flow of fluid through the first valve is prevented and a second, or open, position in which flow of fluid through the first valve is permitted.

  • Patent number: 10088074
    Abstract: Fluid control valve including a valve body having an inlet, an outlet and defining a fluid flow path therebetween. A first valve is adjustable by a first valve actuator between a closed position preventing fluid flow through the first valve and an open position permitting fluid flow. A second valve is associated with the inlet or intermediate the inlet and the first valve, and includes a second valve body and a second valve actuator adapted such that the first valve actuator bears against the second valve actuator in each of the open and closed positions to urge the second valve into an open configuration allowing fluid flow. The first valve actuator is adjustable to a third position in which it is spaced from the second valve actuator by a separation sufficient to allow fluid pressure at the inlet to cause the second valve to close.

  • Publication number: 20180228751
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of a therapeutically effective amount of cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) in the treatment of epilepsy. In one embodiment the CBDA is used in the treatment of generalised seizures, preferably tonic-clonic seizures. Preferably the CBDA used is in the form of a botanical drug substance in which the CBDA content is greater than 60%, and most preferably, it is a highly purified extract of cannabis such that the CBDA is present at greater than 95%, through 96% and 97% to most preferably, greater than 98% of the total extract (w/w) and the other components of the extract are characterised. In particular the cannabinoids tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA) have been substantially removed. Alternatively, the CBDA may be synthetically produced.

  • Patent number: 9969485
    Abstract: An inceptor apparatus (10) for controlling a vehicle, in particular an aircraft comprises a control stick (15) for operation by a user and a user feedback generator (28) coupled to the control stick and configured to receive signals from a vehicle condition indicator (40) remote from the inceptor apparatus. The apparatus also has a first vehicle condition sensor (54,56) dedicated to the operation of the inceptor apparatus. In a first mode of operation, the user feedback generator (28) is operable to generate tactile feedback to the user via the control stick in dependence upon signals received from the vehicle condition indicator (40). In a second mode of operation, in the event that no signal is received from the vehicle condition indicator (40), the user feedback generator (28) is operable to generate tactile feedback to the user via the control stick in dependence upon signals received from the first vehicle condition sensor (54,56).

  • Patent number: 9540711
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an alloy, for hardbanding and/or hard overlay applications, which is abrasion resistant to the order of siliceous earth particles and weldable in crack free state on industrial products. The alloy is a carbon chrome based alloy comprising titanium and vanadium carbides and thus has an extremely low coefficient of friction, high abrasion resistance as welded without working. In tool joints and stabilizers, the alloy achieves an optimum balance between tool joint and stabilizer wear resistance and induced casing wear. The alloy is also self-shielded and therefore does not require external shielding gas.
