  • Patent number: 11947964
    Abstract: Examples of a carry chain for performing an operation on operands each including elements of a selectable size is provided. Advantageously, the carry chain adapts to elements of different sizes. The carry chain determines a mask based on a selected size of an element. The carry chain selects, based on the mask, whether to carry a partial result of an operation performed on corresponding first portions of a first operand and a second operand into a next operation. The next operation is performed on corresponding second portions of the first operand and the second operand, and, based on the selection, the partial result of the operation. The carry chain stores, in a memory, a result formed from outputs of the operation and the next operation.

  • Patent number: 11537926
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for operating a hybrid computing system using cluster contraction for converting large, dense input to reduced input that can be easily mapped into a quantum processor. The reduced input represents the global structure of the problem. Techniques involve partitioning the input variables into clusters and contracting each cluster. The input variables can be partitioned using an Unweighted Pair Group Method with Arithmetic Mean algorithm. The quantum processor returns samples based on the reduced input and the samples are expanded to correspond to the original input.

  • Patent number: 11520504
    Abstract: A data storage device includes a storage including a buffer zone and a data zone and a controller for exchanging data with the storage by allocating at least one zone namespace (ZNS) in the data zone, a ZNS being a data storage region that is physically and logically divided and allocated to each of application programs driven in a host. The controller opens one or more sub buffer zones in the buffer zone, divides write data from the host into one or more segments respectively corresponding to sizes of the one or more sub buffer zones, buffers each of the one or more segments in a corresponding one of the one or more sub buffer zones, opens a ZNS corresponding to a length of the write data in the data zone, and migrates the one or more segments buffered in the sub buffer zones to the opened ZNS.

  • Patent number: 11507868
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems, software, and computer-implemented methods for automatically predicting a probability of success or failure of change requests for an organization's information technology (IT) infrastructure or use environment. One example system includes at least one repository storing information corresponding to one or more prior change requests, at least one memory storing instructions and at least one prediction tool, and at least one hardware processor. Each change request corresponds to a request for a modification to one or more sections of the infrastructure. The instructions instruct the at least one hardware processor to receive one or more parameters corresponding to a new change request associated with the infrastructure. The parameters are provided as input to the at least one prediction tool, and in response, a probability of success of the new change request is received as an output of the at least one prediction tool.

  • Patent number: 11502980
    Abstract: A message can be selectively provided to users of an online content management service based at least in part on a user relationship between the users and a shared content item. Users having the user relationship associated with the message can be shown the message, where users without the user relationship are not shown the message. For example, a message can be configured to be shown upon the first time a content item is opened by a user, but not on subsequent openings of the content item.

  • Patent number: 11481244
    Abstract: The current document is directed to automated application-release-management facilities that, in a described implementation, coordinate continuous development and release of cloud-computing applications. The application-release-management process is specified, in the described implementation, by application-release-management pipelines, each pipeline comprising one or more stages, with each stage comprising one or more tasks. The currently described methods and systems check whether endpoints and external tasks are reachable prior to initiating execution of application-release-management pipelines. Automatic reachability checking is scheduled for idle intervals, when the workflow-execution-engine component of the automated application-release-management facility is not executing release pipelines.

  • Patent number: 11474846
    Abstract: A method of bridging a first database and a second database. The method includes maintaining a state machine representing a state of a virtual node in the first database, wherein the state of the virtual node conforms to a native protocol for native nodes of the first database, said native protocol of the first database differing from a foreign protocol of the second database. The method further includes receiving an incoming message for the virtual node from one of the native nodes according to the native protocol, and based on the incoming message, accessing the second database. The method further includes updating the state of the virtual node based on the incoming message according to the native protocol, and based on the state of the virtual node as updated, sending an outgoing message to one or more of the native nodes according to the native protocol.

  • Patent number: 11467855
    Abstract: The embodiments of the disclosure provide an Application (APP) preloading method and device, a storage medium and a terminal. The method includes that: when an APP preloading event is detected to be triggered, an APP to be preloaded is determined; whether a first APP which is being started in foreground exists or not is judged; and if NO, the APP to be preloaded is preloaded. According to the application, with adoption of the technical solution, not only low speed and non-fluency, caused by preloading the APP, for starting of the APP in foreground may be effectively avoided, but also a speed of preloading the APP to be preloaded may be effectively increased, so that a speed of starting the APP to be preloaded may be increased.
