  • Publication number: 20200264846
    Abstract: A runtime environment generates a proxy class in response to detecting a request for a proxy object. The proxy class implements a set of interfaces specified by the request for the proxy object. The runtime environment selects or generates a proxy module, in a module system, to include the proxy class. The runtime environment exposes interfaces from other modules to the proxy module using a qualified export that does not expose the interfaces to modules other than the proxy module. The runtime environment does not expose the proxy class, of the proxy module, to other modules in the module system.

  • Publication number: 20200159377
    Abstract: Systems and methods for identification and retrieval of content for visual search are provided. An example method includes transmitting a visual-content query to a server computing device and receiving a response to the visual-content query that identifies a digital supplement. The example method also includes causing a user interface to be displayed that includes information associated with the digital supplement. The visual-content query may be based on an image. The digital supplement may include information about the content of the image.

  • Publication number: 20190392084
    Abstract: Systems and methods for identification and retrieval of content for visual search are provided. An example method includes receiving data specifying a digital supplement. The data may identify a digital supplement and a supplement anchor for associating the digital supplement with visual content. The method may also include generating a data structure instance that specifies the digital supplement and the supplement anchor and, after generating the data structure instance, enabling triggering of the digital supplement by an image based at least on storing the data structure instance in a database that includes a plurality of other data structure instances. The other data structure instances may each specify a digital supplement and one or more supplement anchors.

  • Patent number: 10501353
    Abstract: In a process and apparatus for treating produced water, the produced water flows through a series of treatment units. A portion of the produced water may by-pass one or more of the treatment units but the by-pass portion may be such that the treated water is still acceptable, for example for discharge or reuse. Concentrations of oil and grease, organic carbon, silica, pH or related parameters in the produced water may be monitored and used to control the process or apparatus. Control of the process may involve one or more of altering a by-pass portion, altering the addition of chemicals, and altering the operation of a unit process. The process may be controlled to respond to upset conditions, or such that the concentration of one or more limiting contaminants is near, but not over, a specified maximum for re-use or discharge.

  • Publication number: 20190340705
    Abstract: The subject disclosure is directed towards integrating an application into an operating system component of a mobile computing platform. The application communicates registration information to an extension mechanism within the mobile computing platform. The extension mechanism registers the application and modifies the operating system component to provide interoperability with the application based on the registration information. The extension mechanism couples the operating system component with content from a counterpart application to the application, which corresponds to information presented on the operating system component.

  • Patent number: 10355527
    Abstract: At least one of a system or a method for wirelessly charging a device is provided. A wireless receiver is configured to communicate with a device to be charged to determine a desired charge scenario indicative of power to be supplied to the device. Based upon the desired charge scenario, a resonant frequency of the wireless receiver is set. The resonant frequency, in combination with energy transferred from a wireless transmitter, is configured to induce a current in the wireless receiver. Power is supplied to the device based upon the current induced in the wireless receiver.

  • Publication number: 20190157828
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for aligning a master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) system. The method includes ramping up a pumping power input into a laser amplifier chain of the MOPA system until the pumping power input reaches an operational pumping power input level; adjusting a seed laser power output of a seed laser of the MOPA system until the seed laser power output is at a first level below an operational seed laser power output level; and performing a first optical alignment process to the MOPA system while the pumping power input is at the operational pumping power input level, the seed laser power output is at the first level, and the MOPA system reaches a steady operational thermal state.
