  • Patent number: 10614042
    Abstract: Cloud-based storage services are provided for storing and/or sharing content across multiple devices, where the content is periodically synchronized between the devices and the storage service. Embodiments are directed to detection of bulk operations associated with content stored at a storage service to protect users both proactively and remedially from accidental and/or nefarious content alterations propagating to the storage service and/or other devices. A model may be created based on a usage pattern associated with the content, an attempted operation performed on the content may be detected, and the attempted operation may be compared to the model to determine whether the operation deviates from the usage pattern. If the attempted operation deviates from the usage pattern, a preservation policy for the content at the storage service may be modified and a notification of the attempted operation may be provided to obtain user approval.

  • Patent number: 10581918
    Abstract: A device secures open authorization (OAuth) resources according to systems described herein. In some instances, a resource server is configured for receiving a request for authorization from a client device. The request, for authorization to use a requested resource, may include a token having at least one claim. The resource server may interpret data of the token according to a domain specific language. The interpreting may obtain at least one rule associated with the at least one claim from among a range of resource access control rules. The rule may be compared against a resource request and operation. Based on the comparison, the request may be allowed or rejected. In one example, interpretation of the token may decode resources including quantities and combinations of uniform resource identifiers (URIs) claimed by the token using a domain specific language defined by a context-free grammar.

  • Patent number: 10558619
    Abstract: Cloud-based storage services are provided for storing and/or sharing content across multiple devices, where the content is periodically synchronized between the devices and the storage service. Embodiments are directed to detection of bulk operations associated with content stored at a storage service to protect users both proactively and remedially from accidental and/or nefarious content alterations propagating to the storage service and/or other devices. A model based on a usage pattern monitored and provided by a client device may be received at the client device from the storage service. An attempted operation performed on the content may be detected, and the attempted operation may be compared to the model to determine whether the operation deviates from the usage pattern. If the attempted operation deviates from the usage pattern, execution of the attempted operation and synchronization of the content with the storage service may be prevented until the attempted operation is approved.

    Abstract: An automated positioning system and methods of controlling the same. The positioning system includes a multi-joint positioning arm, an end effector coupled to a distal end of the positioning arm, a force-moment sensor (FMS) coupled to the end effector and a controller coupled to communicate with the positioning arm and the FMS. Using signals from the FMS, at least one external force or torque applied to the end effector is determined. A drive velocity for moving the end effector is determined, based on the at least one external force or torque. One or more joint movements of the positioning arm for moving the end effector is calculated, according to the drive velocity. The positioning arm is moved according to the one or more calculated joint movements.
