  • Publication number: 20200195711
    Abstract: Software-based data planes for network function virtualization may use a modular approach in which network functions are implemented as modules that can be composed into service chains. Infrastructures that allow these modules to share central processing unit resources are particularly appealing since they support multi-tenancy or diverse service chains applied to different traffic classes. Systems, methods, and apparatuses introduce schemes for load balancing considering central processing unit utilization of a next hop device when processing a packet that uses a service chain.

  • Patent number: 10568718
    Abstract: Force modules and assemblies for use in orthodontic corrections include an elongate hollow outer body extending between proximal and distal ends, a plunger, biasing member (e.g. spring), and push rod. The plunger and push rod are slidably received within different ends of the hollow outer body. The biasing member is positioned within the hollow outer body and provides an expansion force, which provides a desired corrective force. The outer body, plunger, biasing member, and push rod can be configured in a telescoping relationship in order for the components to be telescopically compressed and expanded during use. The distal end can include a bendable pin or latch mechanism for attachment to a buccal tube. The push rod can include a hook, hole, or slot for attachment to an archwire. Various connectors for coupling an orthodontic force module to a buccal tube portion of a molar bracket are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10423855
    Abstract: In some examples, a system includes a color cluster learning engine and a color recognition engine. The color cluster learning engine may be configured to obtain a set of training images, process the training images to obtain clusters of pixel colors for the training images, identify learned color clusters from the clusters of pixel colors obtained from the training images, and label the learned color clusters with color indicators. The color recognition engine may be configured to receive an input image for color identification, process the input image to obtain a particular cluster of pixel colors that covers the highest number of pixels in the input image, match the particular cluster to a particular learned color cluster labeled with a particular color indicator, and identify a color of the input image as specified by the particular color indicator.
