  • Publication number: 20210117625
    Abstract: According to implementations of the subject matter described herein, there is proposed a solution for semantic parsing of a natural language query. In this solution, a plurality of words in a natural language query for a data set are replaced with a plurality of predetermined symbols to obtain an abstracted utterance. The abstracted utterance is parsed into a plurality of logical representations by applying different deduction rule sets to the abstracted utterance, each logical representation corresponding to a predictive semantic of the natural language query. A logical representation is selected based on the predictive semantics corresponding to the plurality of logical representations for generating a computer-executable query for the data set. Through this solution, a natural language query is converted to a computer-executable query quickly in a data-agnostic and syntax-agnostic manner.

  • Patent number: 10985293
    Abstract: A gallium nitride (GaN) based light emitting diode (LED), wherein light is extracted through a nitrogen face (N-face) of the LED and a surface of the N-face is roughened into one or more hexagonal shaped cones. The roughened surface reduces light reflections occurring repeatedly inside the LED, and thus extracts more light out of the LED. The surface of the N-face is roughened by an anisotropic etching, which may comprise a dry etching or a photo-enhanced chemical (PEC) etching.

  • Patent number: 10972563
    Abstract: Techniques for identifying and delivering notifications of user-generated content to network-limited users are provided. In one technique, for each selected target entity that has a limited network, one or more topics associated with the target entity are identified and the target entity is assigned to one or more entity-topic buckets for the identified topics. For each selected content item, one or more topics associated with the content item are identified and the content item is assigned to one or more content-topic buckets for the identified topics. The entity-topic buckets are matched to the content-topic buckets, resulting in assigning, for each selected target entity, zero or more content items to that target entity. For each target entity that is assigned one or more content items based on the matching, a notification is generated and transmitted over a computer network to a computing device of the target entity.

    Abstract: Technologies for generating dynamic notification content for notification messages using a machine learned model are provided. The disclosed techniques include identifying an event related to a particular user, where the event has a particular notification type that represents a subject type of the event. Based on the particular notification type of the event, a set of candidate headline and call-to-action combinations corresponding to the particular notification type are identified. Using the machine learned model, scores are calculated for each headline and call-to-action combination in the set of candidate headline and call-to-action combinations. One or more particular headline and call-to-action combinations from the set of candidate headline and call-to-action combinations are selected based upon the scores calculated for each combination of the set of candidate headline and call-to-action combinations.

  • Patent number: 10778234
    Abstract: A clock generation circuit and a clock signal generation method are disclosed. In the method, a direct current bias circuit in a first clock source superimposes a first direct current voltage on a first clock signal output by a first oscillation circuit, to generate a second clock signal; and a logical operation is performed on the second clock signal and a third clock signal that is generated by a second clock source, to generate a fourth clock signal. The fourth clock signal is used as a signal output by a clock generation circuit. In the method, when the first oscillation circuit cannot normally work, the clock generation circuit can still output a correct clock signal. This avoids clock signal interruption when switching is performed from the first clock source to the second clock source.
