  • Patent number: 11347623
    Abstract: Using a natural language processing model, a historical defect report comprising a defect description in narrative text form is parsed. Within a code repository, source code associated with the historical defect report is identified. From the historical defect report and the source code, a logging rule comprising a defect type, logging placement information corresponding to the defect type, and logging format information corresponding to the defect type is generated. By parsing a new defect report using the natural language processing model, the new defect report reporting a defect in new source code, it is determined that the logging rule applies to the new defect report. Logging source code generating logging output when executed is placed within the new source code according to the logging rule. Execution of the new source code including the logging source code is caused, generating the logging output.

  • Publication number: 20220165290
    Abstract: To generate substantially condition-invariant and speaker-discriminative features, embodiments are associated with a feature extractor capable of extracting features from speech frames based on first parameters, a speaker classifier capable of identifying a speaker based on the features and on second parameters, and a condition classifier capable of identifying a noise condition based on the features and on third parameters. The first parameters of the feature extractor and the second parameters of the speaker classifier are trained to minimize a speaker classification loss, the first parameters of the feature extractor are further trained to maximize a condition classification loss, and the third parameters of the condition classifier are trained to minimize the condition classification loss.

  • Patent number: 11334769
    Abstract: In an approach to augmenting caption datasets, one or more computer processors sample a ratio lambda from a probability distribution based on a pair of datapoints contained in a dataset, wherein each datapoint in the pair of datapoints comprises an image and an associated caption; extend the dataset by generating one or more new datapoints based on the sampled ratio lambda for each pair of datapoints in the dataset, wherein the sampled ratio lambda incorporates an interpolation of features associated with the pair of datapoints into the generated one or more new datapoints; identify one or more objects contained within a subsequent image utilizing an image model trained utilizing the extended dataset; generate a subsequent caption for one or more identified objects contained within the subsequent image utilizing a language generating model trained utilizing the extended dataset.

  • Patent number: 11209267
    Abstract: An apparatus to detect the topology of a workpiece including surface variations and flaws according to images from several viewpoints includes a frame, a loading member, a robot, an image capturing mechanism, and a controller. The loading member is positioned on the frame and loads a workpiece. The controller controls the robot to drive the image capturing mechanism to move or rotate to different preset positions from each of which the image capturing mechanism can capture images of the workpiece and transmit the images to the controller. The controller further processes the images to obtain an assessment of the components and surface of the workpiece for further processing.
