  • Patent number: 11278434
    Abstract: An orthopedic joint device having a lower leg part, a foot part that is arranged on the lower leg part about a swivel axis such that it can be swivelled, at least a first energy store, and a coupling element. The coupling element can be brought into a coupling position, in which a swivelling of the foot part relative to the lower leg part about the swivel axis in a plantar flexion direction leads to an increase in the amount of energy stored in the first energy store, and a de-coupling position. The orthopedic joint device also has at least one release element, which can be brought into a release position and a locked position. The energy stored in the first energy store can be released by bringing the release element into the release position.

  • Patent number: 10706418
    Abstract: Systems and methods for applying machine learning to dynamically validate a sales transaction document created by a user in a computing system are provided. Data comprising the sales transaction document is received. A machine learning model is applied to the sales transaction document to verify that the sales transaction document meets at least one compliance standard. The user is alerted if the sales transaction document does not meet the at least one compliance standard. The maching learning model is generated by: receiving first sales transaction data from a database; determining patterns based on the first sales transaction data, wherein the patterns indicate that corrective data was created to compensate for at least one error in original data, the at least one error indicating that the original data did not meet at least one compliance standard; and generating the machine learning model based on the determined patterns.

  • Publication number: 20200153202
    Abstract: Methods for driving a tunable laser with integrated tuning elements are disclosed. The methods can include modulating the tuning current and laser injection current such that the laser emission wavelength and output power are independently controllable. In some examples, the tuning current and laser injection current are modulated simultaneously and a wider tuning range can result. In some examples, one or both of these currents is sinusoidally modulated. In some examples, a constant output power can be achieved while tuning the emission wavelength. In some examples, the output power and tuning can follow a linear relationship. In some examples, injection current and tuning element drive waveforms necessary to achieve targeted output power and tuning waveforms can be achieved through optimization based on goodness of fit values between the targeted and actual output power and tuning waveforms.
