  • Patent number: 11403544
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer program product are provided for validating artificial intelligence models. In operation, a data set is obtained. At least one first artificial intelligence (AI) model on the data set is run, for a first time period, to output first predictions. Additionally, at least one second AI model on the data set is run, for a second time period that is less than the first time period, to output second predictions. A first probability of the first predictions and an error of the second predictions are calculated. Further, a second probability of the first predictions is calculated based on the first probability and the error. A representative AI model of the at least one first AI model is selected based on the second probability.

The electronic device includes a random access memory (RAM), a non-volatile memory, a transient error detector, and a clock counter. When a status of input-output ports in the electronic device changes, the transient error detector takes the status of the input-output port and its change as one of the event logs, obtains a time stamp corresponding to the one of the event logs according to a count value counted by the clock counter, and sequentially and temporarily stores the one of the event logs and a corresponding time stamp to the RAM. And, the transient error detector determines whether the event log is a cause to fault. When the event log is the cause to fault, the transient error detector stores the event logs and the corresponding time stamps in the RAM to the non-volatile memory.

A verification information is generated for the item based on the weight data, where the verification information is associated to the determined weight, the generation of the verification information including one of the following steps: a) encrypting the weight data where the verification information corresponds to the encrypted weight data, or b) determining a first message authentication code where the verification information corresponds to the first message authentication code, wherein when using the weight data the validity of the weight data for the item is verified by use of the verification information and if the weight data is verified as being valid weight data, a graphic representation of the weight data is generated.

  • Patent number: 10705858
    Abstract: Techniques to facilitate acquisition of analytics associated with an application are disclosed herein. In at least one implementation, an analytics function call from main program code of the application to a third party analytics function is monitored. Responsive to the analytics function call, the analytics function call is intercepted and a call handler function is invoked instead of the third party analytics function. The call handler function processes the analytics function call to extract analytics data from the analytics function call. A copy of the third party analytics function is then called.

  • Patent number: 10698024
    Abstract: A self-healing microchip comprising a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) microchip lacking radiation shielding. The self-healing microchip includes one or more microheaters that are integrated directly upon a surface of the COTS microchip, a self-test circuit which detects a degradation in the COTS microchip, and one or more temperature sensors. The one or more microheaters may be formed directly upon a backside surface of the COTS microchip using tungsten sputtered shadow mask patterning or by lithography and etching, for example. In response to a detected degradation in the COTS microchip, a temperature control configures an output temperature generated by the one or more microheaters and an amount of time at which the output temperature is maintained to cause annealing in the microchip responsive to the detected degradation in the COTS microchip.

    Abstract: A bioprocess management system includes a bioprocess management controller for electronically interfacing with at least one bioreactor and at least one analyzer. Each bioreactor is configured to maintain cells based on a set of bioreactor operating parameters and to output bioreactor data. Each analyzer is configured to analyze at least one sample taken from at least one bioreactor and to output analyzer data for each sample. The bioprocess controller is configured to receive bioreactor data and analyzer data in real-time. Furthermore, the bioprocess controller is configured to correlate, in real-time, analyzer data from at least one analyzer with bioreactor data from at least one corresponding bioreactor. Additionally, the bioprocess controller is configured to output real-time data relating to at least one bioreactor operating parameter. The real-time data is based at least in part on correlated data from at least one analyzer and at least one corresponding bioreactor.

  • Patent number: 10567436
    Abstract: A method of remote access action includes directing user actions including a first action to a destination device in an industrial control system (ICS) through a terminal server including a memory, a remote access recording component (RARC), and a security center coupled by a communication server through a network connection to the ICS. The terminal server is coupled to a streaming server having a recorded session repository database. The terminal server limits the user to specifically allowed actions and directs actions if allowed enabling user selecting the destination device from a menu that then provides a connection for the first action to be begun. The RARC during the remote session records streams of video of display window content and text representing the first action, combines the text and display window content to generate a combined video output file and stores the file in the session repository database.

  • Patent number: 10560308
    Abstract: Systems are provided for logging transactions in heterogeneous networks that include a combination of one or more instrumented components and one or more non-instrumented components. The instrumented components are configured to generate impersonated log records for the non-instrumented components involved in the transaction processing hand-offs with the instrumented components. The impersonated log records are persisted with other log records that are generated by the instrumented components in a transaction log that is maintained by a central logging system to reflect a complete flow of the transaction processing performed on the object, including the flow through the non-instrumented component(s).
