  • Patent number: 10343776
    Abstract: Directed fragmentation of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is described. In one embodiment, the UAV includes various components, such one or more motors, batteries, sensors, a housing, casing or shell, and a payload for delivery. Additionally, the UAV includes a controller. The controller determines a flight path and controls a flight operation of the UAV. During the flight operation, the controller develops a release timing and a release location for one or more of the components based on the flight path, the flight conditions, and terrain topology information, among other factors. The controller can also detect a disruption in the flight operation of the UAV and, in response, direct fragmentation of one or more of the components apart from the UAV. In that way, a controlled, directed fragmentation of the UAV can be accomplished upon any disruption to the flight operation of the UAV.

    Abstract: An online system using attributes of users to select content for presentation to the users predicts one or more attributes of users whose attributes are unavailable to the online system. For a user with one or more attributes unavailable to the online system, the online system applies a model to attributes of additional users to predict one or more attributes of the user. Attributes of the additional user use in the prediction may include demographic information and interactions with content by the additional users. The online system may determine an accuracy of the model by using the model to predict attributes for users whose attributes are known to the online system and comparing the predicted attributes to the known attributes. If the model's accuracy is less than a threshold value, the online system discontinues using the model to predict attributes of users.

  • Patent number: 10171300
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for automatic redistribution of virtual machines. A cloud-optimization module selects parameters, such as bandwidth requirements, that characterize an efficiency of a virtual network. It assigns weightings to these parameters based on relative importance of each parameter to the proper operation of the network, where the weightings may be determined as functions of captured network-performance statistics. The module translates the network's topology into a graph in which each node represents a network entity, such as a virtual machine or an application, and each edge represents a connection between two such entities. The module then uses a growing neural gas algorithm to revise the graph and the weightings, and translates the revised graph to a more optimal topology that has redistributed the network entities to operate more efficiently, as measured by the weighted parameters.

    Abstract: A self-aware machine platform is implemented through analyzing operational data of machining tools to achieve machine tool damage assessment, prediction and planning in manufacturing shop floor. Machining processes are first identified by matching similar processes through an ICP algorithm. Machining processes are further clustered by Hotelling's T-squared statistics. Degradation of the machining tool is detected through a trend of the operational data within a cluster of machining processes by a monotonicity test, and the remaining useful life of the machining tool is predicted through a particle filter by extrapolating the trend under a first-order Markov process. In addition, process anomalies across machines are detected through a combination of outlier detection methods including SOMs, multivariate regression, and robust Mahalanobis distance. Warnings and recommendations are flexibly provided to manufacturing shop floor based on policy choice.

  • Patent number: 10133980
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve generating or optimizing a neural network for risk assessment. The neural network can be generated using a relationship between various predictor variables and an outcome (e.g., a condition's presence or absence). The neural network can be used to determine a relationship between each of the predictor variables and a risk indicator. The neural network can be optimized by iteratively adjusting the neural network such that a monotonic relationship exists between each of the predictor variables and the risk indicator. The optimized neural network can be used both for accurately determining risk indicators using predictor variables and determining adverse action codes for the predictor variables, which indicate an effect or an amount of impact that a given predictor variable has on the risk indicator. The neural network can be used to generate adverse action codes upon which consumer behavior can be modified to improve the risk indicator score.

    Abstract: Digitized images of the propagated waveforms returned by Time-Domain (TD) sensors reveal the effects of bound water in soil samples, causing errors in the volumetric water content reported for samples due to soil type. Pattern analysis yields not only correct volumetric water content values but also the soil type from which the waveform was taken. Collection and analysis of waveforms from soils having precisely known properties yield computer-generated algorithms to improve the accuracy and number of reporting variables for integrated TD sensors. These algorithms can be deployed in the Cloud for external analysis, or can be incorporated within the sensor to report highly accurate readings of water content, conductivity and soil type under all conditions of these variables with no interpretive burden placed on the user of the sensor. Machine learning algorithms are intended to externally augment data measured by these sensors, or can be added to similar sensors.

  • Patent number: 10049770
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and other embodiments associated with predicting non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patient response to adjuvant chemotherapy therapy using radiomic features extracted from digitized hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stained slides of a region of tissue demonstrating NSCLC. One example apparatus includes an image acquisition circuit that acquires an H&E image of a region of tissue demonstrating NSCLC pathology, a segmentation circuit that segments a region of interest (ROI) from the diagnostic radiological image, a feature extraction that extracts a set of discriminative features from the ROI, and a classification circuit that generates a probability that the ROI will experience NSCLC recurrence. The classification circuit may compute a quantitative continuous image-based risk score based on the probability or the image. A prognosis or treatment plan may be provided based on the quantitative continuous image-based risk score.

  • Patent number: 9683858
    Abstract: Described is a technology by which raw GPS data is processed into segments of a trip, with a predicted mode of transportation (e.g., walking, car, bus, bicycling) determined for each segment. The determined transportation modes may be used to tag the GPS data with transportation mode information, and/or dynamically used. Segments are first characterized as walk segments or non-walk segments based on velocity and/or acceleration. Features corresponding to each of those walk segments or non-walk segments are extracted, and analyzed with an inference model to determine probabilities for the possible modes of transportation for each segment. Post-processing may be used to modify the probabilities based on transitioning considerations with respect to the transportation mode of an adjacent segment. The most probable transportation mode for each segment is selected.
