  • Patent number: 11160494
    Abstract: A physical data acquirer included in an operator device acquires at least one of health data indicating a health condition of an operator or posture data indicating a posture of the operator. A distance determiner included in an information processing apparatus determines whether a distance between the operator and a machine is below a predetermined threshold. A corrector corrects an avoidability definition value defined as a value indicating a possibility of the operator avoiding a hazard caused by the machine in accordance with at least one of the health condition of the operator indicated by the health data acquired from the operator device or the posture of the operator indicated by the posture data acquired from the operator device. A risk value calculator calculates a risk value by substituting the corrected avoidability definition value and a riskiness definition value into a calculation function for the risk value.

  • Patent number: 11152003
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided to implement an intelligent service broker for routing a voice command from a user to one or more virtual assistants based on each virtual assistant's capability to provide an accurate response. Responsive to receiving a voice command with a wake word associated with the intelligent service broker, the intelligent service broker identifies a subject or category of the voice command. Using the identified subject or category, the intelligent service broker selects one or more virtual assistants using a set of ranking values and a set of characteristics that indicate which ranking values to evaluate. The intelligent service broker sends the voice command to the identified virtual assistants and, responsive to receiving responses from more than one virtual assistant, identifies a confidence ranking for each of the responding virtual assistants and provides one or more of the responses based on a set of user configuration settings.

  • Patent number: 11107016
    Abstract: In disclosed techniques, augmented power control within a datacenter uses predictive modeling. A power usage by a first data rack within a datacenter is measured, using one or more processors, over a first period of time. A predicted power usage by the first data rack over a second period of time is generated on a computing device, wherein the second period of time is subsequent to the first period of time. A power correlation model is calculated that correlates a power prediction to an actual power usage. The predicted power usage for the second period of time is refined, based on the predicted power usage and the power correlation model. The refining is accomplished using a power prediction model comprising the predicted power usage and the power correlation model. Datacenter power structure is configured, based on the refined power usage prediction.
