  • Publication number: 20240127035
    Abstract: A method performed by a computer is disclosed. The method comprises receiving interaction data between electronic devices of a plurality of entities. The interaction data is used to form an entity interaction vector containing a number of interactions between the electronic devices of a chosen entity and an entity time series containing a plurality of metrics per unit time of the interactions. An interaction encoder of the computer can generate an interaction hidden representation of the entity interaction vector using embeddings of the plurality of entities. A temporal encoder of the computer can generate a temporal hidden representation of the entity time series. The interaction hidden representation and the temporal hidden representation can be used to generate a predicted scale and a shape estimation of a target interaction metric. The computer can then generate an estimated interaction metric of a time period using the predicted scale and the shape estimation.

  • Patent number: 11955613
    Abstract: Cathode material from exhausted lithium ion batteries are dissolved in a solution for extracting the useful elements Co (cobalt), Ni (nickel), Al (Aluminum) and Mn (manganese) to produce active cathode materials for new batteries. The solution includes compounds of desirable materials such as cobalt, nickel, aluminum and manganese dissolved as compounds from the exhausted cathode material of spent cells. Depending on a desired proportion, or ratio, of the desired materials, raw materials are added to the solution to achieve the desired ratio of the commingled compounds for the recycled cathode material for new cells. The desired materials precipitate out of solution without extensive heating or separation of the desired materials into individual compounds or elements. The resulting active cathode material has the predetermined ratio for use in new cells, and avoids high heat typically required to separate the useful elements because the desired materials remain commingled in solution.
