  • Patent number: 10732993
    Abstract: An interactive library system comprised of a Processing Engine phase, a Presentation Engine phase, a Content Management phase, and a Content Editing/Reading pages phase, which work together in real time. The system, by providing a set of structures within an overarching database, provides the flexibility to build any data set (library) within an overarching data schema. The system proactively presents information to a user in e time as the system constantly scans to finds library matches to user text, saving the user from having to actively search and confirm information and greatly enhancing data handling capability. Further, each user has the flexibility to create a library most relevant to a user's particular position and needs, and select information for retrieval most useful to them.

  • Patent number: 10725772
    Abstract: An electric control device for vehicles capable of updating an old program stored in a storage unit with a new program. A reception unit sequentially receives a plurality of pieces of division data acquired by dividing difference data, which includes a data section based on a difference between the old program and the new program and a command section used for generating the new program by reflecting the data section on the old program, or difference compression data acquired by compressing the difference data for every predetermined data length A restoration process restores the new program based on each division data received by the reception unit and the old program. If at least a part of the command section and the data section is not included in the division data received by the reception unit, the restoration unit suspends the restoration process and waits for reception of next division data.

  • Patent number: 10705833
    Abstract: Aspects extend to methods, systems, and computer program products for transforming data manipulation code into data workflow. Data manipulation code for a data science process is written in a data manipulation programming language. The data manipulation code defines input instructions, data manipulation instructions, and output instructions. A learning module automatically transforms the data manipulation code into a data workflow representative of the data science process. The level of detail for a data workflow can be tailored for an intended audience and/or for subsequent editing with an editor program (e.g., a drawing program). Aspects of the invention address the disconnection between designing a data science process and documenting the data science process. The creation of data workflows is automated, virtually eliminating manual operations and providing significant productive gains for data scientists, data engineers, developers, and program managers.

  • Patent number: 10658079
    Abstract: This disclosure describes a system, a method, and a computer program that enable recommendation of a version of firmware for medical devices. In one embodiment, a computer receives packets transmitted over communication networks of medical facilities, where the packets include data related to medical device activity. The computer performs deep packet inspection (DPI) of the packets, and extracts, from results of the DPI, versions of firmware installed on the medical devices. The computer calculates, based on the versions of firmware, extents to which different versions of firmware were installed on the medical devices, and identifies a latest version of firmware, from among the different versions, whose extent of installation reaches a predetermined threshold. The computer can then make a recommendation to update firmware installed on one or more medical devices at a certain medical facility to the latest version.

  • Patent number: 10596907
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards providing a dynamic application environment where separate components of an application can execute on separate processing hardware at any given point in time. A host device monitors current operating characteristics associated with a computing device, such a head unit of an automobile, and based on those characteristics selects which components of one or more applications to execute on the computing device and which components to execute on the host device, if any. The host device provides the selected components to the computing device for execution by the computing device and the host device executes any other components that are not executed by the computing device. The host device monitors the current operating characteristics associated with the computing device, and modifies the selection of which components are executing on which device based on changes in current operating characteristics.

  • Patent number: 10592387
    Abstract: An approach is provided in which an information handling system selects a first point in a software program corresponding to a compile-time assumption made by a compiler. The information handling system then selects a set of second points in the software program corresponding to a set of locations at which the compile-time assumption can be violated at runtime. Next, the information handling system starts at the first point and propagates backwards in the software program to identify one or more of the second points that are reached from the backwards propagation. The information handling system then inserts conditional transitions in the software program at each of the identified assumption violation points and executes a compiled version of the software program, resulting in an evaluation of the compile-time assumption at the conditional transitions.
