  • Patent number: 11769519
    Abstract: Examples described herein involve detecting known environmental conditions of using a neural network. An example implementation involves a playback device receiving data indicating a response of a listening environment to audio output of one or more playback devices as captured by a microphone and determining an input vector for a neural network. The playback device provides the determined input vector to the neural network, which includes an output layer comprising neurons that correspond to respective environmental conditions. The playback device detects that the input vector caused one or more neurons of the neural network to fire such that the neural network indicates that one or more particular environmental conditions are present in the listening environment. The playback device adjusts audio output of the one or more playback devices to at least partially offset the one or more particular environmental conditions.

  • Patent number: 11561540
    Abstract: Autonomous vehicles are an exciting prospect to the future of driving. However, concerns about the decision-making made by the AI controlling a vehicle has been of concern, particularly in light of high-profile accidents. We can alleviate some concern, introduce better decisions, and also train an AI to make better decisions by introducing a remote viewer's, e.g., a human's, reaction to a possibly complex environment surrounding a vehicle that includes a potential threat to the vehicle. One or more remote viewer may provide a recommended response to the threat that may be incorporated in whole or in part in how the vehicle reacts. Various ways to engage and utilize remote viewers are proposed to improve the likelihood of receiving useful recommendations, including modifying how the environment is presented to a remote viewer to best suit the remote viewer, e.g., perhaps present the threat in a game.

  • Patent number: 10931702
    Abstract: Various systems and methods are described for correlating technology choices with the risk of system vulnerabilities. A system captures and quantifies both observations of technology choices as well as the outputs certain outputs of internal choices and processes across a number of different organizations. A Bayesian estimate of vulnerability is imputed from the choices and observed use of vulnerable technology, further segmented by business type, revenue, and size. Differences between the observation of a particular organization and Bayesian expected value are measured and converted to vulnerability score, the vulnerability score embodying a point-in-time and longitudinal measure of organizational performance, including the likelihood of future compromise due to software vulnerabilities. The vulnerability score can then be further used to price risk, for example in a cyber insurance context.

  • Patent number: 10805317
    Abstract: Described herein is a system transmits and combines local models, that individually include a set of local parameters computed via stochastic gradient descent (SGD), into a global model that includes a set of global model parameters. The local models are computed in parallel at different geographic locations (e.g., different instances of computing infrastructure) along with symbolic representations. Network transmission of the local models and the symbolic representations, rather than transmission of the large training data subsets processed to compute the local models and symbolic representations, conserves resources and decreases latency. The global model can then be used as a model to determine a likelihood that at least a portion of current and/or recently received data traffic is illegitimate data traffic that is associated with a cyber attack. In some instances, the system can implement a remedial action to mitigate the effects of the cyber attack on computing infrastructure.

  • Patent number: 9390331
    Abstract: A method of assessing a riparian area includes mapping a physical extent of a potential riparian area (PRA) along a stream using first imagery, determining a percent of basic functional groups of vegetation with the PRA using the first imagery, and determining a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) for the PRA over multiple years using second imagery. The method further includes setting an NDVI threshold value for riparian vegetation in the PRA using the NDVI, mathematically relating the percent of basic functional groups with the NDVI threshold value to evaluate and correct the NDVI threshold value, and determining a proper function and condition (PFC) assessment of the PRA using the corrected NDVI threshold value.

  • Patent number: 9349096
    Abstract: A context-awareness system has an event data producer for forming event data from node data including a node value and node information, a context producer, and an event data manager for storing event data formation suppression information and event data conversion rules. The context producer sends the number of entries of event data (the number of inputs) to the event data manager per unit time. The manager sends to the event data producer the event data formation suppression information and event data conversion rules corresponding to the number of inputs. The event data producer forms event data depending on the event data formation suppression information and event data conversion rules corresponding to the number of inputs. Appropriate context information is formed without increasing the amount of resources when data including values related to events are entered in large amount and frequently.
