  • Publication number: 20210312738
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for identifying a user based on the classification of user movement data. An identity verification system receives a sequence of motion data from a mobile device operated by a target user. From the sequences of motion data, the identity verification system identifies a plurality of identity blocks representing different movements performed by the target user and encodes a set of signature sequences from each identity block into a feature vector. Each feature vector is input to a confidence model to output an identity confidence value for an identity block. An identity confidence value describes a confidence that the movement in the identity block was performed by the target user. The identity confidence value is compared to an operational security threshold and if identity confidence value is above the threshold, the target user is granted access to an operational context.

  • Patent number: 11124752
    Abstract: The present invention provides for methods and at least partially automated devices suitable for producing a transplantable cellular suspension of living tissue suitable for promoting tissue regeneration in an epithelium-related procedure, as well as compositions produced therefrom. Tissue regeneration in humans is extremely limited and constitutes a major challenge to the repair of damaged organ function. Wound treatment is a typical area where tissue regeneration is required. Wounds (lacerations or openings) in mammalian tissue can result in tissue disruption and coagulation of the microvasculature at the wound face.

  • Patent number: 11128601
    Abstract: Information for use in a command script for a product dispensing system is compiled by sniffing packets associated with a print job that contains information associated with a product to be dispensed, filtering the packets so as to remove fields not associated with the print job, and combining the filtered packets to generate contiguous data associated with the print job. A command script for a product dispensing system is generated by receiving data associated with a print job that contains information associated with a product to be dispensed, extracting the information associated with the product from the print job data, organizing the information associated with the product into discrete informational units, and generating the command script based on the organized discrete information units.

  • Patent number: 11115223
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for distributing cryptographic material are disclosed. In the method and apparatus, cryptographic material is obtained and it is determined that the cryptographic material is to be made available for use by one or more computing resources. The cryptographic material is then sent to one or more secure modules, whereby a secure module of the one or more secure modules is programmatically accessible to a computing resource of the one or more computing resources and programmatic access enables the computing resource to request performance of one or more cryptographic operations using the cryptographic material while exporting the cryptographic material to the computing resource is denied.

  • Patent number: 11112787
    Abstract: A method of targeting, which involves capturing a first video of a scene about a potential targeting coordinate by a first video sensor on a first aircraft; transmitting the first video and associated potential targeting coordinate by the first aircraft; receiving the first video on a first display in communication with a processor, the processor also receiving the potential targeting coordinate; selecting the potential targeting coordinate to be an actual targeting coordinate for a second aircraft in response to viewing the first video on the first display; and guiding a second aircraft toward the actual targeting coordinate; where positive identification of a target corresponding to the actual targeting coordinate is maintained from selection of the actual targeting coordinate.

  • Publication number: 20210160643
    Abstract: Techniques of rendering sound for a listener involve determining, at a first position, a set of directions from which some specified fraction of the sound field energy originates and reconstruct the sound field at a second position based on the set of directions. Along these lines, a sound rendering computer may receive sound data representing sound emanating from positions on a sphere centered on a microphone. Nevertheless, only a small fraction of these points on the sphere contribute much of the sound field energy directed at the listener. The sound rendering computer determines such directions using a directional decomposition in which those directions having the highest fraction of the sound energy are identified. When the listener moves away from the microphone's position, the sound rendering computer, after identifying such directions, applies an amplitude and phase factor to the sound fields corresponding to those directions.

  • Publication number: 20210101437
    Abstract: An enclosure or housing for an air monitoring instrument package for mounting on the roof or other surface on the outside of vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses, trams, trains and ships. By measuring air pollutants from moving vehicles, it is possible to explore the distribution of air pollutants throughout a city or rural area for the identification of sources of different pollutants, estimating human exposures to air pollutants, and mapping air pollutants with high resolution. The disclosed device provides continuous sampling of outside air while simultaneously protecting the delicate instruments from weather elements such as high wind, rain, snow, sleet and hail. The design also allows a nearly constant flow rate of sampled air independent of vehicle velocity. An optional impaction region further reduces transmission of mist and large particles to the chamber containing the measurement package.
