  • Patent number: 11927736
    Abstract: A method of characterizing a serum or plasma portion of a specimen in a specimen container provides a fine-grained HILN index (hemolysis, icterus, lipemia, normal) of the serum or plasma portion of the specimen, wherein the H, I, and L classes may each have five to seven sub-classes. The HILN index may also have one un-centrifuged class. Pixel data of an input image of the specimen container may be processed by a deep semantic segmentation network having, in some embodiments, more than 100 layers. A small front-end container segmentation network may be used to determine a container type and boundary, which may additionally be input to the deep semantic segmentation network. A discriminative network may be used to train the deep semantic segmentation network to generate a homogeneously structured output. Quality check modules and testing apparatus configured to carry out the method are also described, as are other aspects.

  • Patent number: 11792136
    Abstract: In some aspects, a computing system may use time series data and machine learning to determine an efficient time to send data to a blockchain. A machine learning model may use a variety of blockchain related data to predict a network usage costs for different times in the future. The predicted network usage costs may be used to determine when data should be sent for storing on the blockchain to reduce network resource costs for a computing system. For example, based on inputting the blockchain data into the machine learning model, a computing system may generate output indicating network usage costs for a future time period, with each network usage cost corresponding to a timestamp within the future time period. The computing system may determine a minimum network usage cost of the network usage costs and send data to a node in the blockchain network at the corresponding timestamp.

  • Publication number: 20210286369
    Abstract: An agent for navigating a mobile automated system is disclosed herein. The navigation agent receives a navigation instruction and visual information for one or more observed images. The navigation agent is provided or equipped with self-awareness, which provides or supports the following abilities: identifying which direction to go or proceed by determining the part of the instruction that corresponds to the observed images (visual grounding), and identifying which part of the instruction has been completed or ongoing and which part is potentially needed for the next action selection (textual grounding). In some embodiments, the navigation agent applies regularization to ensures that the grounded instruction can correctly be used to estimate the progress made towards the navigation goal (progress monitoring).
