  • Patent number: 11989088
    Abstract: Described apparatuses and methods relate to a read data path for a memory system. The memory system may include logic that receives data and associated metadata from a memory. The logic may perform a reliability check on the data using the associated metadata to determine if the data has an error. If the data is determined not to include an error, the data may be transmitted to a requestor. If the data is determined to include an error, however, a data recovery process may be initiated to recover the data. This may reduce a likelihood the memory system returns corrupted data to a requestor. The memory system may process a different read request at least partially in parallel with the data recovery process to increase throughput or reduce latency. In some cases, the data recovery process may involve one or more techniques related to redundant array of disks (RAID) technology.

  • Patent number: 11868535
    Abstract: A wearable device to assist with memory that includes a processor, a haptic output device, and a button. When a wearer of the device encounters a piece of information they want to remember but thinks they may forget (e.g. the name of someone they just met; a phone number; a coupon code; an address; a new word definition, etc.) they simply press the single button on the device. The single button press initiates a pre-set schedule of tactile reminders about that piece of information. The reminders are vibrational and/or haptic outputs triggered by the processor that come quickly at first, and then become more spaced out over time. The device beneficially assists users in implementing the empirically supported ‘spaced retrieval’ memory strategy—where spaced retrieval refers to a method of retrieving information at longer and longer intervals to aid memory retention for selected pieces of information.
