Server-group messaging system for interactive applications

A method for deploying interactive applications over a network containing host computers and group messaging servers is disclosed. The method operates in a conventional unicast network architecture comprised of conventional network links and unicast gateways and routers. The hosts send messages containing destination group addresses by unicast to the group messaging servers. The group addresses select message groups maintained by the group messaging servers. For each message group, the group messaging servers also maintain a list of all of the hosts that are members of the particular group. In its most simple implementation, the method consists of the group server receiving a message from a host containing a destination group address. Using the group address, the group messaging server then selects a message group which lists all of the host members of the group which are the targets of messages to the group. The group messaging server then forwards the message to each of the target hosts. In an interactive application, many messages will be arriving at the group server close to one another in time. Rather than simply forward each message to its targeted hosts, the group messaging server aggregates the contents of each of messages received during a specified time period and then sends an aggregated message to the targeted hosts. The time period can be defined in a number of ways. This method reduces the message traffic between hosts in a networked interactive application and contributes to reducing the latency in the communications between the hosts.

Personal message service with enhanced text to speech synthesis

A server in a network gathers textual information, such as news items, E-mail and the like. From that information, the server develops or identifies messages for use by individual subscribers. The same server that accumulates the text messages or another server in the network converts the textual information in each message to a sequence of speech synthesizer instructions. The converted messages, containing the sequences of speech synthesizer instructions, are transmitted to each identified subscriber's terminal device. A synthesizer in the terminal generates an audio waveform signal, representing the speech information, in response to the instructions. In the preferred embodiment, the terminals utilize concatenative type speech synthesizers, each of which has an associated vocabulary of stored fundamental sound samples. The instructions identify the sound samples, in order. The instructions also provide parameters for controlling characteristics of the signal generated during waveform synthesis for each sound sample in each sequence. For example, the instructions may specify the pitch, duration, amplitude, attack envelope and decay envelope for each sample. The division of the text to speech synthesis processing between the server and the terminals places the cost of the front end processing in the server, which is a shared resource. As a result, the hardware and software of the terminal may be relatively simple and inexpensive. Also, it is possible to upgrade the quality of the synthesis by upgrading the server software, without modifying the terminals.

Systems and methods for localized image registration and fusion

Systems and methods are described for co-registering, displaying and quantifying images from numerous different medical modalities, such as CT, MRI and SPECT. In this novel approach co-registration and image fusion is based on multiple user-defined Regions-of-Interest (ROI), which may be subsets of entire image volumes, from multiple modalities, where the each ROI may depict data from different image modalities. The user-selected ROI of a first image modality may be superposed over or blended with the corresponding ROI of a second image modality, and the entire second image may be displayed with either the superposed or blended ROI.

Method for controlling heterogeneous multiprocessor and multigrain parallelizing compiler

A heterogeneous multiprocessor system including a plurality of processor elements having mutually different instruction sets and structures avoids a specific processor element from being short of resources to improve throughput. An executable task is extracted based on a preset depending relationship between a plurality of tasks, and the plurality of first processors are allocated to a general-purpose processor group based on a depending relationship among the extracted tasks. A second processor is allocated to an accelerator group, a task to be allocated is determined from the extracted tasks based on a priority value for each of tasks, and an execution cost of executing the determined task by the first processor is compared with an execution cost of executing the task by the second processor. The task is allocated to one of the general-purpose processor group and the accelerator group that is judged to be lower as a result of the cost comparison.

Stent with polymeric coating

InactiveUS20040034409A1Effectively suppress the restenosis-triggering factorsReduce spreadPharmaceutical containersPretreated surfacesPercent Diameter StenosisPolymer
The invention concerns an implantable stent (10) with an at least portion-wise polymeric coating (16). The coating material is admittedly intended to bond to known materials but by virtue of its properties it is intended to enjoy improved compatibility and reduce inflammatory and proliferative processes which can lead to restenosis. That is achieved in that the polymeric coating (16) in the implantable condition after production and sterilization contains poly-L-lactide of a mean molecular weight of more than 200 kDa.

Methods and systems for the rapid detection of concealed objects

The present invention provides for an improved scanning process having a first stage to rapidly identify a threat location and a second stage to accurately identify the nature of the threat. The improved scanning process maintains a high degree of accuracy while still providing an operationally desirable high throughput. The present invention also uses improved processing techniques that enable the substantially automated detection of threats and decrease the dependence on operator accuracy. One embodiment of the present invention provides an apparatus for identifying an object concealed within a container. It comprises a first stage inspection system having at least two X-ray projection systems to generate a first set of data and a plurality of processors in data communication with the first stage inspection system. The processors process the first set of data to generate at least two images. The two images are used to identify at least one target region from the two images. A second stage inspection system is then used to generate an inspection region which is then positioned relative to the target region and made to at least partially physically coincide with the target region. A second set of data is produced specifically from the inspection region, data which have a high degree of specificity for the material in the inspection region.
