Abstract

A system defining a visual sensing pipeline architecture flexibly allows application developers to dynamically adapt the spatial resolution and update rate of different “rhythmic pixel encoding regions” in a scene. The system ingests pixel streams with raster-scan pixel read-out patterns, but only encodes relevant pixels prior to storing them in memory. The system includes streaming hardware to decode the stored rhythmic pixel encoding region stream into traditional frame-based representations to feed into standard computer vision algorithms.

Abstract

A computer-implemented system incorporates a time-varying view of exploitability in the form of Expected Exploitability (EE) to learn and continuously estimate the likelihood of functional software exploits being developed over time. The system characterizes the noise-generating process systematically affecting exploit prediction, and applies a domain-specific technique (e.g., Feature Forward Correction) to learn EE in the presence of label noise. The system also incorporates timeliness and predictive utility of various artifacts, including new and complementary features from proof-of-concepts, and includes scalable feature extractors. The system is validated on three case studies to investigate the practical utility of EE, showing that the system incorporating EE can qualitatively improve prioritization strategies based on exploitability.

Abstract

The present disclosure provides for characterization of normal flora and identifying biomarkers in the gut of healthy, neurotypical subjects. Aspect of the disclosure provide for the characterization of the gut microbiome in ADS subjects, characterized by reduced richness and significant loss of the ‘Prevotella-like enterotype’ compared to neurotypical subjects. The relative abundance of genera Prevotella, Coprococcus, Prevotellaceae and Veillonellaceae are significantly lower in autistic children than in neurotypical children. Further, Prevotella, is one of the three main classifiers for the human enterotypes, along with Bacteroides and Ruminococcus. These three core genera are among main contributors in the principle component analysis. ‘Prevotella-like enterotype’ was absent in the autistic group, while neurotypical samples showed an even distribution among the three enterotypes. The present disclosure provides for an understanding the association between gut microbiota, health, and disease states, and provides for potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets.

Abstract

Techniques are described for efficiently reducing the amount of total computation in convolutional neural networks (CNNs) without affecting the output result or classification accuracy. Computation redundancy in CNNs is reduced by exploiting the computing nature of the convolution and subsequent pooling (e.g., sub-sampling) operations. In some implementations, the input features may be divided into a group of precision values and the operation(s) may be cascaded. A maximum may be identified (e.g., by 90% probability) using a small number of bits in the input features, and the full-precision convolution may then be performed on the maximum input. Accordingly, the total number of bits used to perform the convolution is reduced without affecting the output features or the final classification accuracy.

Abstract

Contacts for solar cells and other optoelectronic devices are provided. Embodiments described herein take advantage of the surface Fermi level pinning effect to build an electrical field inside of a semiconductor to extract or inject carriers for solar cells, photodetectors, and light-emitting device applications. For example, n-type or p-type two-dimensional (2D) materials can be used in contact with an n-type semiconductor to form a “p-region” so that a p-n junction, or an i-n or n-n+ junction can be constructed. Similarly, n-type or p-type 2D materials can be used in contact with a p-type semiconductor to form an “n-region” so that an n-p junction, or an i-p or p-p+ junction can be constructed. These structures can provide sufficiently high electrical field inside the semiconductor to extract photogenerated carriers in solar cells and photodetectors or inject minority carriers for light-emitting devices.

Abstract

Systems and methods for continuous flow polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are provided. The system comprises an injector, a mixer, a coalescer, a droplet generator, a detector, a digital PCR system, and a controller. The injector takes in a sample, partitions the sample into sample aliquots with the help of an immiscible oil phase, dispenses waste, and sends the sample aliquot to the mixer. The mixer mixes the sample aliquot with a PCR master mix and diluting water, dispenses waste, and sends the sample mixture (separated by an immiscible oil) to the coalescer. The coalescer coalesces the sample mixture with primers dispensed from a cassette, dispenses waste, and sends the reaction mixture (separated by an immiscible oil) to the droplet generator. The droplet generator converts the sample mixture into an emulsion where aqueous droplets of the reaction mixture are maintained inside of an immiscible oil phase and dispenses droplets to the digital PCR system. The digital PCR system amplifies target DNAs in the droplets. The detector detects target DNAs in the droplets. The controller controls the system to run automatically and continuously.

Abstract

Relay-aided intelligent reconfigurable surfaces (IRSs) are provided. A novel relay-aided intelligent surface architecture is described herein that has the potential of achieving the promising gains of IRSs with a much smaller number of elements, opening the door for realizing these surfaces in practice. A half-duplex or full-duplex relay is connected to one or more IRSs. This merges the gains of relays and reconfigurable surfaces and splits the required signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) gain between them. This architecture can hen significantly reduce the required number of reconfigurable elements in the IRS(s) while achieving the same spectral efficiencies. Consequently, the proposed relay-aided intelligent surface architecture needs far less channel estimation/beam training overhead and provides enhanced robustness compared to traditional IRS solutions.

Abstract

Hierarchical coarse-grain sparsity for deep neural networks is provided. An algorithm-hardware co-optimized memory compression technique is proposed to compress deep neural networks in a hardware-efficient manner, which is referred to herein as hierarchical coarse-grain sparsity (HCGS). HCGS provides a new long short-term memory (LSTM) training technique which enforces hierarchical structured sparsity by randomly dropping static block-wise connections between layers. HCGS maintains the same hierarchical structured sparsity throughout training and inference; this reduces weight storage for both training and inference hardware systems.

Abstract

Vision-aided wireless communications systems are provided. Embodiments disclosed herein leverage visual data sensors (such as red-blue-green (RGB)/depth cameras) to adapt communications (e.g., predict beamforming directions) in large-scale antenna arrays, such as used in millimeter wave (mmWave) and massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. These systems face two important challenges: (i) a large training overhead associated with selecting an optimal beam and (ii) a reliability challenge due to high sensitivity of mmWave and similar signals to link blockages. Interestingly, most devices that employ mmWave antenna arrays, such as 5G phones, self-driving vehicles, and virtual/augmented reality headsets, will likely also use cameras. Therefore, an efficient olution is presented which uses cameras at base stations and/or handsets to help overcome the beam selection and blockage prediction challenges.
