  • Publication number: 20220128462
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed relate to methods of predicting neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD) properties of a feedstuff sample. A method of predicting neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD) properties of a feedstuff sample includes collecting a near-infrared spectrum of the feedstuff sample to provide NIR data of the feedstuff sample. The method also includes predicting NDFD of the sample at an elapsed time, NDFD rate of the sample, and/or NDFD extent of the sample from the NIR data using a NIR/NDFD calibration model. Various embodiments provide a method of developing the NIR/NDFD calibration model using in vitro gas production (IVGP).

  • Publication number: 20220124021
    Abstract: A network verification system processes a network forwarding state into atomic predicates and compresses a network routing table into an atomic predicates indexes set. A transitive closure among all pairs of nodes in the network is calculated from the atomic predicates and atomic predicates indexes set to generate an all-pair reachability matrix Mn of the network. A reachability report for the network is recursively generated for respective nodes based on the all-pair reachability matrix. The reachability report is used to dynamically program the network.

  • Patent number: 11308066
    Abstract: A database-management system (DBMS) dynamically adjusts the logical and physical partitioning of data stored in database tables. An artificially intelligent DBMS partition manager draws expert inferences from the DBMS's current workload, execution logs, and data statistics, in order to identify ranges of database key values that are frequently accessed by incoming queries. The ranges are allocated to logical partitions that are then mapped to physical partitions, such that database records identified by a pair of subranges are stored in proximate areas of physical storage. This partitioning reduces the number of physical-storage accesses by populating each physical partition with records likely to be accessed together.
