  • Patent number: 10496927
    Abstract: A predictive modeling method may include determining a time interval of time-series data; identifying one or more variables of the data as targets; determining a forecast range and a skip range associated with a prediction problem represented by the data; generating training data and testing data from the time-series data; fitting a predictive model to the training data; and testing the fitted model on the testing data. The forecast range may indicate a duration of a period for which values of the targets are to be predicted. The skip range may indicate a temporal lag between the time period corresponding to the data used to make predictions and the time period corresponding to the predictions. The skip range may separate input data subsets representing model inputs from subsets representing model outputs, and separate test data subsets representing model inputs from subsets representing validation data.

  • Publication number: 20190167235
    Abstract: Front-end circuitry for an ultrasound system is described which comprises a beamformer FPGA integrated circuit, transmit ICs with both pulse transmitters and linear waveform transmitters, transmit control and receiver ICs, and analog-to-digital converter (ADC) ICs. Waveform data for both the linear and pulser transmitters is stored in the transmit control and receiver ICs, saving pins on the FPGA, which is the conventional source of this data. The ADCs couple digital echo data to the FPGA for beamforming over serial bus lines, saving additional FPGA pins over a conventional parallel data arrangement. The inclusion of both pulser and linear waveform transmit capabilities in the transmit ICs enables the use of both types of transmitters in the formation of a multi-mode image, such as use of the pulsers for Doppler beams and linear transmitters for B mode beams in the formation of a colorflow image.

  • Publication number: 20190121315
    Abstract: A method for calibrating a CNC machine including providing instructions for machining a surface of a distortion-free object, selecting a true axis of movement of a toolhead of the machine using the instructions, instructing the toolhead to travel on an object to be machined along the true axis of movement, but where the toolhead actually travels along an actual axis that is deviated from the true axis as a result of the surface distortions on the object to be machined, selecting multiple points along the actual axis traveled by the toolhead on the object to be machined, comparing the distance of the multiple points along the actual axis from the true axis to determine offset amounts from the true axis corresponding to a lack of straightness of the object to be machined, and modifying the instructions to compensate for the offset amounts before uploading the instructions to a CNC controller.

  • Publication number: 20190100122
    Abstract: A method of making a seating assembly includes attaching an electronics module to a seat support structure. A cushion assembly is formed over the electronics module and secures the cushion assembly to an underlying seat support structure. Connecting features of the cushion assembly are flowed into securing channels of the seat support structure to form an interference fit. The cushion assembly and the underlying seat support structure are covered with a water barrier skin to form a watertight seating unit. A seating surface of the watertight seating unit is covered with a coverstock.

  • Publication number: 20180060744
    Abstract: A predictive modeling method may include obtaining a fitted, first-order predictive model configured to predict values of output variables based on values of first input variables; and performing a second-order modeling procedure on the fitted, first-order model, which may include: generating input data including observations including observed values of second input variables and predicted values of the output variables; generating training data and testing data from the input data; generating a fitted second-order model of the fitted first-order model by fitting a second-order model to the training data; and testing the fitted, second-order model of the first-order model on the testing data. Each observation of the input data may be generated by (1) obtaining observed values of the second input variables, and (2) applying the first-order predictive model to corresponding observed values of the first input variables to generate the predicted values of the output variables.
