Application: Algorithm selection for processor-controlled device (Patent ID: US20240086241A1)

The patent filed by BT Group Plc describes a method for selecting an algorithm from a group of candidate algorithms based on resource characteristics of a processor-controlled device. The method involves obtaining values for the device's resource characteristics, identifying analogous reference devices with similar characteristics, obtaining reference performance values for candidate algorithms on these reference devices, and selecting the algorithm based on these performance values. The algorithm selection process is tailored to the specific resource capabilities of the device, ensuring optimal performance.

Furthermore, the method allows for the consideration of various resource characteristics such as processing capability, storage capability, power source, and communication capability of the device. It also involves obtaining device performance values, applying performance constraints, and calculating score values for each candidate algorithm to aid in the selection process. By utilizing a classifier trained to identify analogous reference devices and considering the importance of different resource characteristics and performance values, the method ensures efficient algorithm selection for optimal application performance. This approach can be implemented in a data processing system or through computer-readable instructions, providing a systematic and effective way to choose the most suitable algorithm for a given device and application scenario.
