  • Publication number: 20210049522
    Abstract: To improve a future prediction simulation technology in order to more accurately predict the future by enabling a mathematics expression and an operand numerical value to be appropriately corrected, a server executes, as a future prediction simulation apparatus, a future prediction simulation by using mathematics expression data and operand numerical data for specifying a mathematics expression and an operand numerical value, which are recorded in a server recorder and which are to be used in the future prediction simulation. The server includes an interpreting unit, a related information collecting unit, and a determining unit. The interpreting unit reads from the server recorder basis data, which is text data for specifying the basis used by the user to determine the mathematics expression and the operand numerical value, and generates interpretation data. The related information collecting unit collects related information related to the basis data by crawling the Internet using the interpretation data.

  • Patent number: 7595824
    Abstract: Random pollution of output signals with logic noise caused by video signal processing is prevented and a high quality image video signal with reduced random noise is output. A signal processor includes a digital signal processor (DSP) which processes a digital signal resulting from analog to digital conversion of an analog signal stored in a pixel unit, an output circuit which outputs a signal resulting from signal processing by the DSP, and line memory which is disposed between the output circuit and the DSP and stores a digital signal output from the DSP for a shorter period than the horizontal scanning period. The output circuit reads the signal stored in the line memory in sync with the beginning of a read-out timing in the horizontal scanning period.
