  • Patent number: 10769545
    Abstract: A second problem Hamiltonian may replace a first problem Hamiltonian during evolution of an analog processor (e.g., quantum processor) during a first iteration in solving a first problem. This may be repeated during a second, or further successive iterations on the first problem, following re-initialization of the analog processor. An analog processor may evolve under a first non-monotonic evolution schedule during a first iteration, and second non-monotonic evolution schedule under second, or additional non-monotonic evolution schedule under even further iterations. A first graph and second graph may each be processed to extract final states versus a plurality of evolution schedules, and a determination made as to whether the first graph is isomorphic with respect to the second graph. An analog processor may evolve by decreasing a temperature of, and a set of quantum fluctuations, within the analog processor until the analog processor reaches a state preferred by a problem Hamiltonian.

  • Patent number: 10771369
    Abstract: A method for predicting a failure of a complex storage environment is provided. An earliest expected incident of resource exhaustion on a data path of interest is predicted. The method includes monitoring a current utilization of one or more resources over a data path of interest, and calculating a maximum utilization threshold for each resource, such that exceeding the maximum utilization threshold adversely impacts one or more performance measures. An expected performance threshold is created that is associated with an expected performance. A maximum values of resource usage over time is analyzed to predict when the expected performance will fall outside of an acceptable overall performance threshold for the data path of interest to determine an earliest expected incident of resource exhaustion.

  • Patent number: 10758660
    Abstract: Constraining adaptive optimizations of a state of an operation module of a medical device includes determining if a new state has at least one operational parameter that is outside a constraint that has been provided to the medical device in a non-repudiable manner, accepting the new state if no operational parameters are outside any of the constraints, and reverting the medical device to a previous valid state if at least one operational parameter is outside at least one of the constraints. The adaptive optimizations may be provided using artificial intelligence along with relevant inputs thereto. The medical device may be a dialysis system. Constraint data may be provided to the medical device along with a one-way hash value of the constraint data using, for example, a SHA 256 hash. The one-way hash value may be digitally signed using a private key that is part of a public/private key pair.

  • Patent number: 10685285
    Abstract: The mirror deep neural networks (DNNs) as described herein recognize patterns in an input signal. Mirror DNNs regularize to a linear function and train very quickly. Mirror DNNs employ a neural network pattern recognizer that receives a set of features extracted from an input signal and inputs the set of features into a multi-layer neural network. The multi-layer neural network has an input layer that receives the set of features, a plurality of intermediate layers, and an output layer that generates a set of output values that are indicative of a recognized pattern exhibited in the input signal. A first and second non-linear equation pair are chosen and applied to intermediate layers of the neural network so as to make the output values that are indicative of a pattern exhibited in the input signal linear.

    Abstract: Computing systems, methods and collaboration tracking tools for predicting, tracking, and reporting the occurrence of unscheduled collaborations between two or more contributors to a project using computer systems equipped capabilities to transmit and/or receive location information of each individual contributor. An analytics module receiving the location information may use the location data to identify when two or more contributors to a project are in the same location together, and further predict whether the proximity of location and timing of the contributors crossing paths will predictably lead to an undocumented project-related collaboration determined as a function of location information, historical data and input collected. The collaboration tracking tools predict, report and/or record collaborations of project-related topics.

  • Patent number: 10489792
    Abstract: A company may desire to maintain a quality level for messages sent by customer service representatives to customers. The company may receive a message input by a customer service representative, modify the message with one or more neural networks, and transmit the modified message to a customer. To modify a message, an input vector may be created for each word of the message where the input vector is created using a word embedding of the word and a feature vector that represents the characters of the word. The input vectors for the words of the message may be sequentially processed with an encoding neural network to compute a message encoding vector that represents the message. The message encoding vector may then be processed by a decoding neural network to sequentially generate the words of a modified message. The modified message may then be transmitted to the customer.
