  • Publication number: 20230409882
    Abstract: Facilitating efficient processing of transformer based models is provided herein. A low latency processing system includes a transformer having an embedding layer and a Tensor Streaming Processor (TSP) having a Matrix Multiplication module (MXM) and Vector Calculation module (VXM). The TSP is arranged to deterministically process information arranged by the embedding layer and an encoder layer with the associated self-attention mechanism, the information being further modified according to the transformer using a general matrix multiply (GEMM) mapped directly on the MXM and associated accumulator. Further, at least some set of information is processed to parallelize the execution of GEMMs across all MXM planes.

  • Patent number: 11769324
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of sensors distributed about a space. Each sensor generates sensor data associated with properties of one or more people in the space. A gateway device receives the sensor data from each of the plurality of sensors and provides the sensor data to an automated response subsystem over a network. The automated response subsystem receives the sensor data. A first feature value is determined based on the received sensor data. An event score is determined based on the first feature value. The event score is compared to predefined response criteria. Based on the comparison of the event score to the predefined response criteria, an actionable event is detected, and an automated response to initiate for the detected actionable event is identified. One or both of an alert and instructions are provided in order to initiate the automated response.

  • Patent number: 11620888
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of sensors distributed about a space. Each sensor generates sensor data associated with properties of one or more people in the space. An automated response subsystem receives the sensor data. An unauthorized activity performed by a first person in the space is detected based on at least a portion of the received sensor data. In response to detecting the unauthorized activity, tracking instructions are transmitted that identify the first person associated with the unauthorized activity. A tracking device receives the tracking instructions. A device associated with the first person is detected. Over a period of time, the tracking device sends queries to the device and receives corresponding responses from the device. The tracking device determines positions of the device within the space over the period of time.

  • Publication number: 20220335791
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of sensors distributed about a space. Each sensor generates sensor data associated with properties of one or more people in the space. An automated response subsystem receives the sensor data. An unauthorized event is detected associated with an adaptive-security device operating within the space and operating instructions are transmitted that identify security protocols to increase security of devices during the unauthorized event. An adaptive-security device operates within the space and receives the operating instructions. After receiving the operating instructions, the adaptive-security device determines whether a user is currently accessing secure information in the adaptive-security device. If the user is currently accessing the secure information, display of at least a portion of the secure information is prevented. If the user is not currently accessing the secure information, authentication requirements are increased for accessing the secure information.
