  • Patent number: 11004714
    Abstract: A load port includes a door and a mapping sensor. The door moves upward and downward between a closing position for closing an opening connected into a container with multiple stages for placing a plurality of substrates and an opening position for opening the opening. The mapping sensor is disposed integrally with the door and detects a state of the substrates. The mapping sensor includes a light emitting portion and an imaging portion. The light emitting portion emits an imaging light toward the substrates. The imaging portion captures an image of a reflected light of the imaging light.

  • Patent number: 10840770
    Abstract: An electrical rotating machine includes a housing which has a bearing mounted on a wall thereof. The housing also has a plurality of air inlets, a plurality of air outlets, and spokes. The spokes extend from the bearing in a radial direction of the housing to isolate the air inlets from each other in a circumferential direction of the housing. Each of the spokes is equipped with a heat sink exposed to a flow of cooling air entering the housing through the air inlet to dissipate heat, as transmitted to the spoke, thereby minimizing transfer of the heat to the bearing through the spokes.

  • Patent number: 10769532
    Abstract: A rating prediction engine builds and applies models to predict ratings based on an analysis of textual reviews and comments. The engine can build multiple models simultaneously through distributed parallel model building that employs deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs). The engine can also incorporate user moment feature data, including user status and context information, to provide better performance and more accurate predictions. The engine can also employ heuristic unsupervised pre-training and/or adaptive over-fitting reduction for model building. In some instances, the techniques described herein can be used in a service to predict personalized ratings for reviews or other published items, in instances where the original author of the item did not include a rating and/or in instances where the publication channel does not provide a mechanism to enter ratings.

  • Patent number: 10424006
    Abstract: A system for automatic ordering of products comprises a receiver to receive stock parameters including a number of products sold till a point in time, an expiration duration for usage of products, or a number of products available in an inventory at the time. The system also includes a stock analyzer to determine a stock-out probability factor based on the number of products sold and estimated short term sales, determine a disposal probability factor based on the number of products sold, the expiration duration and estimated long term sales, ascertain a risk balance factor indicative of a ratio of the disposal probability factor to the stock-out probability factor, determine a number of products to replenish the inventory, based on the stock-out probability factor, the disposal probability factor, and the risk balance factor, and place a purchase order to a vendor for acquiring the number of products for replenishing the inventory.

  • Patent number: 10289641
    Abstract: Techniques are described for determining recommended tourist based on the real time collection and analysis of biological information regarding users. Sensors in proximity to a user may collect neural activity data (e.g., brain wave data) and physiological data (e.g., blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar level, etc.). The biological information may be analyzed to determine, for each user, an emotion metric indicating an emotional state of the user at various times. The emotion metrics may be correlated with location data to determine the emotion metric of the user at various sites during a trip. Tag metadata describing the location(s) may be clustered through semantic analysis to generate clusters of semantically similar tags. Emotion metric scores for the clusters may be employed to predict destination(s) where the user(s) may exhibit positive emotion metrics, and the predicted destination(s) may be presented to users in advertisements or other content.

  • Patent number: 10276415
    Abstract: A gas purge unit introduces a cleaning gas into a container with a main opening there through for taking a housed object in and out. The gas purge unit includes a blowout member and a supply portion. The blowout member with a cylindrical shape has an elongated hollow extending in a longitudinal direction and a discharge portion of a porous body connecting between the elongated hollow and the outside to discharge the cleaning gas. The supply portion is connected to the elongated hollow through a connection hole formed at one end of the blowout member to supply the cleaning gas to the elongated hollow.
