  • Publication number: 20220237646
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for providing context-aware selection and recommendation of applications and services on a mobile device. The selection of the preferred applications is based on the context of the user and the context of the applications. A comparison engine related to a recommendation module performs a similarity computation between context attribute vectors of the user and the applications. Based on the similarity computation, a rank-order is produced that determines in what order the application icons should be presented to the user. A digital wallet is also disclosed that maintains the reward points awarded to the user as crypto/virtual tokens based on the instant principles. Unlike prevailing techniques, the reward points are awarded in a context-aware manner after reconciling the conflicting or contradictory usage habits of the user.

  • Publication number: 20220143598
    Abstract: The self-contained kit comprises methods for receiving and preparing the biological samples for the nucleic acid amplification and sensing the presence of the target assay. The kit consists of a self-heating pack to provide the heat for nucleic acid sample preparation and amplification processes. The change of the amplification is indicated through colorimetric or turbidity sensing and detected through a mobile phone camera and associated mobile application for photographic scanning of physical or chemical differences of the samples to produce the test results.

  • Publication number: 20220120033
    Abstract: The present invention relates to yarn dyeing, such as denim dyeing. A process provides a dyed yarn having reduced dye penetration and a white core at lower cost. The improved process for yarn dyeing is referred to herein as the CleanKore technology. The CleanKore technology improves one or more steps in dye ranges to achieve dyeing of the yarn while retaining a white core at the center of the yarn. When viewing a cross-section of a yarn, the peripheral portion is dyed while the center remains white (not dyed). The CleanKore technology modifies the scouring stage (or phase), the scour rinsing stage, the dyeing stage, and/or the dye rinsing phase of existing dye ranges. The modifications may be applied individually or any combinations thereof to the existing dye range.

  • Patent number: 11061706
    Abstract: A method for tracking virtual machine usage includes deploying, by a client machine with a client Internet Protocol (IP) address, an instance of a virtual machine. The client machine generates an identification for the instance of the virtual machine and requests a domain name system (DNS) lookup for a domain name string from a tracker server specified by a tracker IP address, where the domain name string comprises the identification. The tracker server receives the DNS lookup from the client machine and records the identification and the client IP address.

  • Publication number: 20210071358
    Abstract: Ring dyeing of yarn with indigo dye to produce an improved white core, An outer surface of the yarn is scoured prior to applying the indigo dye, and then applying the indigo dye is applied. Scouring parameters of the dyeing are used to limit a penetration of the indigo into the white core, so that the white core has mostly sections of white yarn, and the yarn has indigo dye on the outer surface, said parameters comprising limiting scouring parameters to at least 10% below current parameters used to scour the yarn.

  • Patent number: 10242684
    Abstract: Systems and methods for adjusting audio levels in a plurality of audio signals are disclosed. One or more input signals containing one or more audio signals are depacketized. The audio signals are analyzed to determine if audio levels of the signals correspond to a desired audio level for at least some of the signals. The audio levels of signals that do not correspond are adjusted. Packets that do not require adjustment and the resulting adjusted packets are combined to form one or more output signals corresponding to the one or more input signals.
