  • Patent number: 11288053
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer-storage media, for conversion and restoration of computer environments to container-based implementations. In some implementations, an archive of configuration data for a server system is obtained, where the server system includes at least one application. A set of multiple software images is generated, where the multiple software images are generated such that they divide the functionality of at least one application among the respective containers. In generating the set of multiple software images, settings of the at least one application are identified based on the configuration data in the archive, a subset of the settings is selected for each of the software images, and the selected subsets of settings are converted into converted subsets of settings for the respective software images.

  • Publication number: 20220087116
    Abstract: An indoor gardening appliance includes a grow module that is rotatably mounted within a grow chamber and that defines pod apertures for receiving a plurality of plant pods. A hydration system includes a discharge nozzle positioned within the grow chamber for selectively discharging a mist of nutrients. An electrostatic charging assembly is coupled to the discharge nozzle for selectively charging the mist of nutrients. By contrast, the plant pods may be electrically coupled to a grounding assembly for selectively grounding the root end of the plant pods. In this manner, the roots of the plants may have an opposing charge relative to the mist of nutrients such that the mist of nutrients are attracted to and deposited on the roots of plants.

  • Patent number: 11277878
    Abstract: Two devices can be connected for communication by a wireless connection, where those devices will function as master and slave devices with respect to that connection. A slave device to a connection can perform changes to the connection on behalf of an application, subsystem, or other such source on either the slave device or a master device. These changes can include changes to connection parameter values, or can include state changes such as to perform a disconnect action. Enabling the slave device to perform these actions can help to bypass any restrictions that would otherwise prevent these actions being performed from a master device to the connection.

  • Publication number: 20220056935
    Abstract: An innovative hexagonet provides a unique surface structure to achieve optimal tribological performance of any solid objects. The hexagonet comprises fractal hexagons and each fractal hexagon include regular hexagons in fractal form that can reduce friction and improve interactions of an object with any other objects and environment, thereby increasing the performance and reliability of the object by increasing balance and consistency in motion and at rest. Once integrated to the object, the hexagonet can form a protective surface which is repellent to other matter, thus, providing slippery, anti-fouling and anti-bacterial properties. Additionally, the protective surface creates a tribological effect which significantly reduces heat and disturbance, contamination and wear and tear resulting in reduction of energy consumption of the object. Further, the versatile and effective hexagonet can provide various applications to the object in solid-to-solid, solid-to-liquid, solid-to-air interactions, etc.

  • Publication number: 20220012924
    Abstract: First content may be obtained in response to identifying a first physical element of a first object type. The first content may be associated with the first object type. Second content may be obtained in response to identifying a second physical element of a second object type. The second content may be associated with the second object type. The second physical element may be detected as being within a threshold distance of the first physical element. Third content may be generated based on a combination of the first content and the second content. The third content may be associated with a third object type that is different from the first object type and the second object type. The third content may be displayed on the display.

  • Publication number: 20220015108
    Abstract: A mechanism for efficient event scheduling for a wireless communication module. The event scheduling is performed by employing a tree-based structure for organising/arranging desired events by desired initiation time, and selecting an event to be performed by the wireless communication module using the tree-based structure. Conflicting events are resolved using a probabilistic scheduling approach.

  • Publication number: 20220004381
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer-storage media, for integration of containers with external elements. In some implementations, a server environment is provided using one or more containers. The one or more containers include a first container that is an instance of a software image for an application or service. The first container is run such that the first container performs various operations. For example, access to one or more external elements that reside outside of the software image is initiated. Based on the one or more external elements, a configuration of the first container is changed from what is provided by the software image.

  • Publication number: 20210375448
    Abstract: Glucose prediction using machine learning (ML) and time series glucose measurements is described. Given the number of people that wear glucose monitoring devices and because some wearable glucose monitoring devices can produce measurements continuously, a platform providing such devices may have an enormous amount of data. This amount of data is practically, if not actually, impossible for humans to process and covers a robust number of state spaces unlikely to be covered without the enormous amount of data. In implementations, a glucose monitoring platform includes an ML model trained using historical time series glucose measurements of a user population. The ML model predicts upcoming glucose measurements for a particular user by receiving a time series of glucose measurements up to a time and determining the upcoming glucose measurements of the particular user for an interval subsequent to the time based on patterns learned from the historical time series glucose measurements.
