  • Publication number: 20220193549
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for performing adaptive audio mixing are disclosed. A trained neural network dynamically selects and mixes pre-recorded, human-composed music stems that are composed as mutually compatible sets. Stem and track selection, volume mixing, filtering, dynamic compression, acoustical/reverberant characteristics, segues, tempo, beat-matching and crossfading parameters generated by the neural network are inferred from the game scene characteristics and other dynamically changing factors. The trained neural network selects an artist's pre-recorded stems and mixes the stems in real-time in unique ways to dynamically adjust and modify background music based on factors such as game scenario, the unique storyline of the player, scene elements, the player's profile, interest, and performance, adjustments made to game controls (e.g., music volume), number of viewers, received comments, player's popularity, player's native language, player's presence, and/or other factors.

  • Patent number: 11324400
    Abstract: An eye measurement system includes an optical system. The eye measurement system is disposed in a housing which includes an aperture for providing light to and from the optical system and a subject's eye while the subject is separated and spaced apart from the housing, and the eye is not maintained in a fixed positional relationship with respect to the housing. An optical system movement arrangement moves the optical system. An automatic eye tracking arrangement ascertains a current positional relationship of the eye with respect to the optical system without human assistance, and in response thereto controls the optical system movement arrangement to move the optical system into a predetermined positional relationship with respect to the eye, for measurement of the eye, without human assistance. The eye measurement system can make objective, and/or subjective, refraction measurements of the eye.

  • Patent number: 11314909
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides for generating multiphase flow properties of porous media based on one or more input parameters. For instance, the multiphase flow properties may be a capillary pressure-saturation relationship for the porous media. The one or more input parameters include an interfacial tension along an interface between a wetting fluid and a non-wetting fluid, a contact angle between the interface and a pore wall of the porous media, and a pore throat size. The pore throat size is based on subparameters including a saturation of the wetting fluid, a saturation of the non-wetting fluid, a porosity of the porous media, and an orientation angle between a representative pore body size and a representative pore throat size.
