PROCESSING APPARATUS AND PROCESSING METHOD CONCERNING MEDICAL IMAGES

Pub Date: 2019-03-14

Pub Number: US20190076027

A processing apparatus concerning medical images includes a reference image readout unit configured to read out a reference image acquired by photoacoustic imaging, a target image readout unit configured to read out a target image for diagnostics acquired by photoacoustic imaging, and a calculation unit configured to modify at least one of a read-out reference image and a read-out target image, wherein the reference image and the target image are read out while being associated with meta-information, and wherein the calculation unit modifies at least one of the read-out reference image and the read-out target image based on the meta-information.

APPARATUSES, METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR A MARGINAL CONTRIBUTION TO PERFORMANCE PLATFORM

Pub Number: US20190080403

The APPARATUSES, METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR A MARGINAL CONTRIBUTION TO PERFORMANCE PLATFORM (MCP PLATFORM) brings about significant advances in the utility and efficacy of algorithmic trading. In one embodiment, the MCP Platform facilitates optimized trading of financial instruments by employing an optimization framework that extends down to the order-placement level. The MCP Platform may minimize a total, generalized cost associated with a trade by separating the overall optimization problem into current order placement decisions and future order placement decisions. Future order placement decisions may then be evaluated analytically and the current order placement decisions evaluated numerically to effectively reduce the dimensionality of the optimization problem and allow optimization to be performed in a relatively short period of time.

STORAGE SYSTEM USING CLOUD BASED RANKS AS REPLICA STORAGE

Pub Date: 2019-03-14

Pub Number: US20190082009

A computer-implemented method for using cloud based ranks as replica storage comprises allocating storage space on cloud storage devices via a cloud interface; mapping the allocated storage space on the cloud storage devices to corresponding virtual local addresses; grouping the virtual local addresses to create at least one cloud based rank from the allocated storage space on the cloud storage devices; designating a cloud based rank as cloud based replica storage for a corresponding primary storage; assigning a service level to the cloud based replica storage based, at least in part, on characteristics of data being mirrored to the cloud based replica storage and a rate at which the data is mirrored to the cloud based replica storage; and dynamically adjusting the service level assigned to the cloud based replica storage in response to a command to swap the cloud based replica storage with the corresponding primary storage.

STORAGE ARCHITECTURE FOR VIRTUAL MACHINES

Pub Date: 2019-03-14

Pub Number: US20190079793

Some embodiments of the present invention include a method comprising: accessing units of network storage that encode state data of respective virtual machines, wherein the state data for respective ones of the virtual machines are stored in distinct ones of the network storage units such that the state data for more than one virtual machine are not commingled in any one of the network storage units.

HDTV Antenna Assemblies

Pub Date: 2019-03-14

Pub Number: US20190081401

Exemplary embodiments are disclosed of HDTV antenna assemblies. In an exemplary embodiment, a high definition television antenna assembly generally includes a first antenna element and a second antenna element. The first antenna element has a generally annular shape with an opening. The second antenna element includes first and second arms spaced apart from the first antenna element. The first and second arms extend at least partially along portions of the first antenna element. The first and second antenna elements may be electromagnetically coupled without a direct ohmic connection between the first and second antenna elements.
