  • Publication number: 20240154626
    Abstract: Neural Normalized MinSum (N-NMS) decoding for improving frame error rate (FER) performance on linear block codes over conventional normalized MinSum (NMS). Dynamic multiplicative weights are assigned to each check-to-variable message in each iteration to efficiently provide training parameters of N-NMS that support N-NMS for longer block lengths. Embodiment are described for neural two-dimensional normalized MinSum (N-2D-NMS) decoders requiring fewer training parameters. The N-2D-NMS approaches for example use the same weight for edges with the same check and/or variable node degree. Simulation results indicate that that this LDPC decoding performs similarly to previous techniques while substantially reducing the amount of training necessary.

  • Publication number: 20240121424
    Abstract: Methods and systems for canvas size scalability across the same or different bitstream layers of a video coded bitstream are described. Offset parameters for a conformance window, a reference region of interest (ROI) in a reference layer, and a current ROI in a current layer are received. The width and height of a current ROI and a reference ROI are computed based on the offset parameters and they are used to generate a width and height scaling factor to be used by a reference picture resampling unit to generate an output picture based on the current ROI and the reference ROI.

  • Publication number: 20240078340
    Abstract: A data processing system implements detecting that a first user device associated with a first user has added a first sponsored content item to a host electronic document by adding a first reference to the first sponsored content item to the host electronic document. The first sponsored content item is stored separately in a memory of a cloud-based service from the host electronic document. The data processing system further implements determining that the first user has permission to share the first sponsored content item with other users of the cloud-based service, generating sponsor information to associate the sponsored content item with the host electronic document to permit users having access to the host electronic document to access the sponsored content item, and storing the sponsor information in a sponsored access datastore.
