  • Publication number: 20210107158
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a working environment of a movable device utilizing a monitoring apparatus, wherein the working environment includes a working area and at least one protected area and the movable device is located within the working area during normal operation of said movable device, where the method includes a user inputting a plurality of convex polytopes into the monitoring apparatus, the convex polytopes corresponding to areas in which the movable device is located during normal operation, determining a convex polytope hull using the monitoring apparatus, the convex polytope hull completely enclosing the multiplicity of convex polytopes, and determining the at least one protected area by calculating a difference from the convex polytope hull and the input using the monitoring apparatus, such that monitoring of the position of the movable device is simplified because the working area can be modeled autonomously.

  • Patent number: 10868911
    Abstract: A system and method for testing an agent by a validation bot may include sending training material to an agent; automatically initiating, by the validation bot, a session with an agent by providing a phrase to the agent via a client media interface; obtaining a reply from the agent; mapping the reply of the agent to an agent intent; providing a response to the agent based on the agent intent and according to a predetermined session flow, wherein the predetermined session flow is based on the training material; repeating obtaining responses, mapping the responses and providing responses until a termination criterion is met; calculating a score of the agent according to scoring rules; and providing the score of the agent to a user.

  • Patent number: 10860570
    Abstract: A system and method for identifying anomalies in indicators, such as key performance indicators (KPIs) of a telecom system are disclosed. The method can learn over time behavior of the indicator and can statistically identify what should be considered anomalous. Learning can be performed on a per indicator basis that each presents different statistical qualities. The method can associate the indicator to a profile, such as one of several statistical distributions and can operate accordingly. Association may be determined by the correlation of the indicator to statistical distribution. The method can identify correlations between indicators when identifying the statistical distribution and especially when the associated statistical distribution is an unidentified profile. The method can include comparison of actuals versus prediction and sending alerts when anomalies are found.

  • Patent number: 10740419
    Abstract: Some embodiments include tracking events and classifying assets within a computer system. A time series of occurrences of an event type associated with at least one asset is generated. A first signal value and a second signal value is determined based on the time series. The at least one asset can be classified based on comparison of the first signal value and the second signal value. The time series can be based on at least one time window including time intervals. Counters to determine a number of occurrences of an event type can be associated with the time intervals. Each of the counters can be incremented upon occurrence of the event type associated with the at least one asset during an associated time interval.

  • Publication number: 20200224395
    Abstract: A jet regulator (104) including a jet regulator housing (1) having an outer thread (2) on the outer circumference of the housing for screwing into an internal thread (3) in the water outlet (4) of a sanitary outlet fitting. The jet regulator housing (1) has a thread profile as an outer thread (2) on the housing outer circumference, deviating at least in sections from a thread groove that is continuously spiraling around a cylindrical wall, which outer thread cooperates in this region in a self-adapting manner with the internal thread (3) provided in the water outlet (4) and/or has at least one cross-sectional widening (6, 7) which is made of the same material as the housing section of the jet regulator housing (1) supporting the outer thread (2) and which is integrally formed thereon, and which can be sealingly placed on the water outlet (4) on the end side and/or on the inner circumference side.

  • Patent number: 10672514
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for bioinformatics and data processing. In particular, in a first aspect, the present disclosure relates to methods and systems for generating a personalized treatment guideline for a patient and for selecting a treatment for a patient. In another aspect, the present disclosure relates to methods and systems for selecting patients for a clinical trial of a treatment. The invention resolves cases in which patients have more than one “actionable” aberration by combining the patient-specific molecular information and the treatment-specific molecular information further with a clinico-molecular disease model, specifically a scoring of genes and/or proteins that represents several aspects of their involvement into the disease. In this way, treatments and patients can be prioritized that are most likely to impact or impacted by the disease mechanism, respectively.
