  • Patent number: 12039403
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of reducing an impact of stray magnetic fields on components of a quantum computing chip is disclosed. The computer implemented method includes applying a first current signal to a first component of a quantum computing chip, whereby the first component generates a stray magnetic field impacting an operation of a second component of the quantum computing chip. The computer implemented method further includes applying a compensation current signal to a shielding circuit of the quantum computing chip, the compensation current signal generated according to a predetermined function of the first signal, to magnetically shield the second component from the stray magnetic field generated by the first component.

  • Patent number: 12026141
    Abstract: Data storage system conflict management techniques are described. In one example, data is sent by client devices to both a repository system and a search index system of a data storage system. Each of the client devices maintains, locally, records of changes to data of the repository system, e.g., through use of an invertible Bloom lookup table. The records are used as a basis by the client devices to send reports to an arbiter system and used to detect conflicts When detected, a conflict request is communicated to client devices involved in the conflict as well as to the repository system and responses used to generate a correction that is communicated to update the repository system and search index system.

  • Patent number: 11964646
    Abstract: A foot brake valve (2?) of a pneumatic brake system in a motor vehicle has an installation plate (4?), on which a brake pedal (14) is pivotably mounted and to which a housing (18?) of a control unit (16, 26) is fastened. A spring-loaded plunger piston (36) in actuating contact with the brake pedal (14) is guided axially movably in an annular collar (50) projecting upward out of the installation plate (4?). For fastening the housing (18?) of the control unit (16, 26) to the installation plate (4?), the housing (18?) has an intermediate flange (48) which is screw-connected to the main part of the housing (18?) and has the annular collar (50). The intermediate flange (48) is coaxially rotatably about a vertical central axis (32), and is connectable in non-positively locking fashion to the installation plate (4?) via a releasable clamping connection (62).

  • Patent number: 11967024
    Abstract: A technique is described for extracting or constructing a three-dimensional (3D) model from multiple two-dimensional (2D) images. In an embodiment, a foreground segmentation mask or depth field may be provided as an additional supervision input with each 2D image. In an embodiment, the foreground segmentation mask or depth field is automatically generated for each 2D image. The constructed 3D model comprises a triangular mesh topology, materials, and environment lighting. The constructed 3D model is represented in a format that can be directly edited and/or rendered by conventional application programs, such as digital content creation (DCC) tools. For example, the constructed 3D model may be represented as a triangular surface mesh (with arbitrary topology), a set of 2D textures representing spatially-varying material parameters, and an environment map. Furthermore, the constructed 3D model may be included in 3D scenes and interacts realistically with other objects.

  • Publication number: 20240107214
    Abstract: Switch assemblies and network devices incorporating same. An example playback device includes a housing, one or more microphones, and a switch assembly configured to enable and disable the microphone(s). The switch assembly may include a slider cage coupled to the housing, an electrical actuator, and a sliding switch sub-assembly configured to slide laterally between first and second positions along a path constrained by the slider cage, the sliding switch sub-assembly including an actuator portion that extends through an opening in the housing to an exterior of the playback device and a translation component that converts lateral motion of the sliding switch sub-assembly between the first and second positions into vertical motion that activates the electrical actuator to enable the microphone(s) when the sliding switch sub-assembly is in the first position and deactivates the electrical actuator to disable the microphone(s) when the sliding switch sub-assembly is in the second position.

  • Patent number: 11935179
    Abstract: A fully-connected neural network may be configured for execution by a processor as a fully-fused neural network by limiting slow global memory accesses to reading and writing inputs to and outputs from the fully-connected neural network. The computational cost of fully-connected neural networks scale quadratically with its width, whereas its memory traffic scales linearly. Modern graphics processing units typically have much greater computational throughput compared with memory bandwidth, so that for narrow, fully-connected neural networks, the linear memory traffic is the bottleneck. The key to improving performance of the fully-connected neural network is to minimize traffic to slow “global” memory (off-chip memory and high-level caches) and to fully utilize fast on-chip memory (low-level caches, “shared” memory, and registers), which is achieved by the fully-fused approach.

  • Publication number: 20240086436
    Abstract: Systems and methods for pre-training and fine-tuning of neural-network-based language models to reason directly over tables without generating logical forms. In some examples, a language model can be pre-trained using masked-language modeling tasks synthetically generated from tables pulled from a knowledge corpus. In some examples, the language model may be further pre-trained using pairs of counterfactual statements generated from those tables, and/or one or more statements that compare selected data from those tables. The language model may then be fine-tuned using examples that include only a question, an answer, and a table, allowing fine-tuning examples to be harvested directly from existing benchmark datasets or synthetically generated.
