  • Publication number: 20230035961
    Abstract: A system and method for recommending emojis to send by a messaging application includes receiving user biosignals from at least one sensor, receiving context information from at least one context source, and selecting, using a rule-based heuristic state selector, a list of plausible user states from possible heuristic states in a heuristic state table based on the received user biosignals and received context information. A state predictor determines, from at least the list of plausible user states and a user model of emojis previously sent in different user states, a list of user states and probabilities that the user will send an emoji for each user state given the context information. The recommended emojis are displayed for selection for sending by the messaging application in order from the highest to the lowest probabilities that the user will send the recommended emojis based on a selected plausible user state.

  • Publication number: 20230035691
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a device uses a multi-armed bandit model to select different network paths over time via which traffic associated with an online application is routed. The device obtains, from a provider of the online application, application experience metrics associated with the different network paths and indicative of user satisfaction with the online application. The device learns, by the multi-armed bandit model, which of the different network paths will provide satisfactory application experience metrics, based on the application experience metrics associated with the different network paths. The device causes the traffic associated with the online application to be routed via a set of one or more paths expected by the multi-armed bandit model to provide satisfactory application experience metrics for the online application.

  • Publication number: 20230035769
    Abstract: A barrier for a roadway (e.g., a highway, bridge, or other road), which can be used to manage vehicular traffic, such as to establish lanes, protect motorists and other people (e.g., pedestrians, constructions workers, etc) against crashes or other impacts, and/or other purposes, and which may be configured to enhance its use and performance, such as by better protecting the motorists and others when impacted by vehicles (e.g., reducing deflection by deflecting less or substantially not deflecting; mitigating risks of “catapulting” or “vaulting” of vehicles; and/or otherwise improving protection provided by the barrier), facilitating transportation, installation and/or transfer of the barrier at the roadway, and/or enhancing other aspects of the barrier.

  • Publication number: 20230034363
    Abstract: To determine the head pose of a user, a head-mounted display system having an imaging device can obtain a current image of a real-world environment, with points corresponding to salient points which will be used to determine the head pose. The salient points are patch-based and include: a first salient point being projected onto the current image from a previous image, and with a second salient point included in the current image being extracted from the current image. Each salient point is subsequently matched with real-world points based on descriptor-based map information indicating locations of salient points in the real-world environment. The orientation of the imaging devices is determined based on the matching and based on the relative positions of the salient points in the view captured in the current image. The orientation may be used to extrapolate the head pose of the wearer of the head-mounted display system.

  • Publication number: 20230029640
    Abstract: The present disclosure refers to the development of novel random bipolymers, which are comprised of alkyl acrylate and alkoxy alkyl acrylate monomers, as hydrophobic and hydrophilic components, respectively. These bipolymers are synthesized by means of semi-continuous emulsion polymerization, under strict conditions of monomer deficiency, to ensure the randomness and homogeneity of the chains. The application in dissolution of these random bipolymers has shown a dehydrating capacity superior to that of polyethers and phenolic resins, with the additional advantage of being soluble in crude oil. The random bipolymers show excellent performance as breakers of water-in-crude oil emulsions, coalescers of water droplets and clarifiers of the removed aqueous phase, and are chemically stable under acidic conditions.
