The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Faces may be indexed and identified using visual and social criteria. In one example, the visual features of a face are quantified, and the quantification of the features is represented in a vector. Aspects of the vector are then represented in the form of text strings. Social context surrounding the face is also represented in the form of text strings. The text strings--both the visual-based strings and/or the social-based strings--are associated with the face, and are stored in an index. The association of these strings with the face then may make the face text-searchable on both its visual and social features. Searches on these visual and/or social features may be used to help to assist in identifying new images of faces, or to propose tags for users to apply to photos." The patent application was filed on Dec. 20, 2010 (12/973,881).

It includes an automatic price-setting mechanism that modifies the share-price at the same instant that a trade is made, yet without the assistance of a market maker or a queue of orders. The instant price-setting is achieved by assuming a pre-defined relationship between the quantity of shares in the order and the average share price for that order. This relationship is the price-quantity function. The present invention also includes a mechanism of weighted parameters to modify the share-price in addition to pure supply and demand. The parameters can be adjusted over time in a neural network to optimize the relationship between the share price and the prediction of the actual idea value." The patent application was filed on Dec. 15, 2008 (12/335,041).

In such a structure, the entire LDPC matrix is broken into square sub-matrices such that each sub-matrix consists of either a CSI sub-matrix or a permuted identity sub-matrix, or a null matrix. The iterative decoding process operates by updating of APP (a posteriori probability) or gamma (.gamma.) values and check edge message (.lamda.) values, and this by updating one or more individual rows within a number of sub-matrix rows (or all sub-matrix or sub-block rows) are processed in parallel. The amount of parallelism is specified by the designer and is typically an integer divisor of the sub-matrix (or sub-block) size." The patent application was filed on July 30, 2009 (12/512,490).

Intelligent design of LDPC codes having similar characteristics there between allows for a very efficient hardware implementation of a communication device that is operative to perform decoding of more than one type of LDPC coded signals. A common basis of decoder hardware (e.g., decoder circuitry) is employed when decoding all of the various types of LDPC coded signals that such a communication device can decode. However, all of the decoder hardware is only employed to decode signals corresponding to the lowest code rate LDPC code supported by the communication device. A first subset of the decoder hardware is employed to decode signals corresponding to the second to lowest code rate LDPC code, a second subset (being less than the first subset) is employed to decode signals corresponding to the third to lowest code rate LDPC code, etc." The patent application was filed on April 29, 2010 (12/769,818).

Blanksby, Neptune, N.J., for a "permuted accelerated LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) decoder." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Permuted accelerated LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) decoder. This decoding approach operates by processing, in parallel, selected rows for multiple individual LDPC matrix rows from various sub-matrix rows (e.g., first group of rows from a first sub-matrix row, second group of rows from a second sub-matrix row, etc.). A memory structure of daisy chains is employed for memory management of APP (a posteriori probability) values and also for check edge messages/intrinsic information (.lamda.) values. A first group of daisy chains may be employed for memory management of the APP values, and a second group of daisy chains may be employed for memory management of the check edge messages. These daisy chains operate to effectuate the proper alignment of APP (or gamma(.gamma.)) values and check edge message/intrinsic information (.lamda.) values for their respective updating in successive decoding iterations."

A modulation and a block length for a transmission are determined based on the average mutual information per bit. The average mutual information per bit is computed based on a current channel signal-to-noise ratio and a plurality of previous transmissions, each being transmitted with a respective coded block length, modulation form, and signal-to-noise ratio. A block error rate is computed for the potential block lengths and modulations based on the average mutual information per bit, and a throughput of the current transmission is determined based on the block error rate. The modulation form and the block length of the transmission are determined based on an analysis of the throughput. If the receiver cannot decode the current transmission, the transmitter repeats the computation to determine the modulation and the block length for retransmission."

*** Toshiba, Telcordia Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 26 -- Toshiba, Tokyo, and Telcordia Technologies, Piscataway, N.J., have been assigned a patent (8,341,395) developed by Subir Das, Belle Mead, N.J., Yoshihiro Oba, Kawasaki, Japan, and Ashutosh Dutta, Bridgewater, N.J., for a "media independent handover protocol security." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An apparatus for providing security to media independent handover service includes a point of service for providing the media independent handover services including an independent authenticator. The independent authenticator authenticates candidate access networks prior to the handover of the mobile devices from serving access networks to the candidate access networks, where each of the serving access networks and the candidate access networks belong to a plurality of heterogeneous access networks having the specific serving media. An access controller applies an access control through an access authentication with the point of service providing the media independent handover services through an authentication server, in which when the access authentication is established between the point of service and the authentication server, the mobile devices are authorized to access the media independent handover services through the point of service for the mobile devices attached between heterogeneous media." The patent application was filed on May 3, 2010 (12/772,646).

*** InterDigital Technology Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 26 -- InterDigital Technology, Wilmington, Del., has been assigned a patent (8,341,408) developed by six co-inventors for a "system and method for providing variable security level in a wireless communication system." The co-inventors are Akinlolu Oloruntosi Kumoluyi, Summerfield, N.C., Alexander Reznik, Titusville, N.J., Guodong Zhang, Farmingdale, N.Y., Prabhakar R. Chitrapu, Blue Bell, Pa., Sung-Hyuk Shin, Northvale, N.J., and Yingming Tsai, Boonton, N.J.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system and method for providing variable security levels in a wireless communication network. The present invention optimizes the often conflicting demands of highly secure wireless communications and high speed wireless communications. According to a preferred embodiment of the present invention, various security sensors are scanned to determine the likely presence of an intruder within a predetermined trust zone. If an intruder is likely present, the security level is changed to the highest setting, and consequently a lower data rate, while the intruder is identified. If the identified intruder is in fact a trusted node, the security level is returned to a lower setting. If the identified intruder is not a trusted node, the security level is maintained at an elevated state while the intruder is within the trust zone." The patent application was filed on Feb. 2, 2012 (13/365,126). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,341,408.PN.&OS=PN/8,341,408&RS=PN/8,341,408 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
