  • Patent number: 11514238
    Abstract: Machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other computer-implemented methods are used to identify various semantically important chunks in documents, automatically label them with appropriate datatypes and semantic roles, and use this enhanced information to assist authors and to support downstream processes. Chunk locations, datatypes, and semantic roles can often be automatically determined from what is here called “context”, to wit, the combination of their formatting, structure, and content; those of adjacent or nearby content; overall patterns of occurrence in a document, and similarities of all these things across documents (mainly but not exclusively among documents in the same document set).

  • Patent number: 11507285
    Abstract: Disclosed is a controller for a disaggregated memory device. The controller may receive a request to allocate memory of a specific size from the disaggregated memory device to a computing device, and may generate a memory block device in the specific size from a memory pool formed from physical memory modules configured on the disaggregated memory device. The controller may expose the memory block device to the computing device as a Non-Volatile Memory Express (“NVMe”) target device, and may control access to the memory block device by converting NVMe access requests in a first format from the computing device to access requests in a different second format supported by the memory block device.

  • Publication number: 20220365676
    Abstract: Provided is a disaggregated memory server, which in some examples is a rack-mounted hardware appliance comprising a pool of memory for allocation to memory clients. Examples of memory clients may include one or more rack-mounted computing devices co-located on a rack with the disaggregated memory server. The disaggregated memory server may be optimized for high-speed dynamic memory allocation to the other computing devices in the rack.

  • Patent number: 11492709
    Abstract: An etchant composition and method for etching molybdenum from a microelectronic device at an etch rate are described. A microelectronic device is contacted with an etchant composition for a time sufficient to at least partially remove the molybdenum. The etchant composition comprises at least one oxidizing agent, at least one oxidizing agent stabilizer, and at least one base and has a pH of from 7.5 to 13. The etchant composition selectively removes molybdenum at an etch rate of 5-200 ?/min.

  • Publication number: 20220306165
    Abstract: The disclosure generally pertains to systems and methods for assisting a customer retrieve a package from an autonomous vehicle. In an example procedure, the autonomous vehicle may detect the customer waiting at a first spot and may determine that the first spot is unsuitable/unsafe for the customer to retrieve a package from a locked compartment in the autonomous vehicle. The autonomous vehicle may therefore instruct the customer to move to a second spot that is safer and closer to the compartment and may then execute an authentication procedure to authenticate the customer and unlock a door of the compartment. In an alternative approach, the autonomous vehicle may travel to a parking spot that is safer and closer to where the customer is waiting (rather than instructing the customer to move) before authenticating and unlocking the door of the compartment to allow the customer to retrieve the package.

  • Patent number: 11455247
    Abstract: Disclosed is a controller for providing applications seamless access to local and remote memory so that data of a particular application that is moved out of the Random Access Memory (“RAM”) of a local device may be stored and accessed in RAM of a remote device rather than on higher latency and slower performing storage mediums. The controller provides an application with a first allocation of RAM from the local device running the application, and a second allocation of RAM from the remote device. The controller registers to receive a page fault notification for a particular page that the application attempts to access and that is not stored in the first allocation of RAM. The controller retrieves the particular page from the second allocation of RAM, and loads it into the first allocation of RAM where it becomes accessible by the application.

  • Publication number: 20220275276
    Abstract: The invention provides a composition and method for improving the selectivity of nitride etching versus oxide etching and can be used with conventional phosphoric acid wet etch compositions. The invention describes additives that serve to inhibit silicon, oxides, and related compounds regrowth (i.e., redeposition) on the silicon oxide surface. In certain embodiments, the invention provides certain amino-substituted aryl compounds which are bound to a tri-alkoxy silane.
