  • Publication number: 20220067913
    Abstract: In a method for training a neural network to recognize a tool condition based on image data, the neural network is trained to recognize the tool condition of a first tool type, and image data of a second tool type is applied. The image data is subjected to image processing. Via this, the image data of the second tool type is converted into image data of the first tool type. The neural network is trained based on the converted image data. In a method for machining and/or production via the first tool type, the tool condition of the first tool type is recognized via a neural network that is trained in accordance with such a method.

  • Patent number: 11053025
    Abstract: A method and system for alleviating a load is provided. A support system is positioned at a nominal location with respect to an object. The support system comprises jacks and supports. Each of the supports is associated with one of the jacks. The object is positioned on the support system. The support system with the object is moved across a path. The height of each of the jacks is adjusted as the support system moves along the path to maintain a desired minimum load on each jack. Maintaining the desired minimum load prevents damage to the object.

  • Publication number: 20210201262
    Abstract: A load matching system matches freight loads to trucking carriers based on multiple factors including carrier geo-location, load origin, load destination, carrier equipment type, information about the user, pick-up-time, drop-off-time, price elasticity, and transactional history. The system uses machine learning algorithms to provide the carrier with synthesized load information, based on past experience, current conditions and user interaction with previous load postings.

  • Patent number: 10887294
    Abstract: A set of cryptographic keys are synchronized across a set of HSMs that are configured in an HSM cluster. The set of cryptographic keys is maintained in a synchronized state by HSM cluster clients running on client computer systems with corresponding client applications. If the HSM cluster becomes unsynchronized, an HSM cluster client attempts to lock the HSM cluster and reestablish synchronization of the cryptographic keys across the HSM cluster. HSMs within the HSM cluster are able to establish an encrypted communication channel to other HSMs without revealing the contents of their communications to their respective host computer systems. Individual HSMs in the HSM cluster may include features that assist the HSM cluster client in determining whether each HSM is up-to-date, identifying particular keys that are not up-to-date, and copying keys from one HSM to another HSM within the HSM cluster.

  • Patent number: 10764047
    Abstract: An HSM cluster includes a set of hardware security modules that maintain a set of cryptographic keys that are synchronized across the HSM cluster. Individual applications running on client computer systems access the HSM cluster using HSM duster clients running on the client computer systems. The HSMs are accessed via a set of HSM cluster servers that monitor the synchronization of the cryptographic keys. Synchronization of the HSMs is maintained by the HSM cluster clients. If the HSM cluster loses synchronization, an HSM cluster client resynchronizes the HSM cluster by acquiring a list of keys and key versions stored on each HSM, and generating an update map. Using the update map, the HSM client obtains, form various HSM in the HSM cluster, the latest versions of the out-of-date keys in an encrypted form. The HSM cluster client assembles and distributes updates to each HSM in the HSM cluster.

  • Publication number: 20200021430
    Abstract: An HSM cluster includes a set of hardware security modules that maintain a set of cryptographic keys that are synchronized across the HSM cluster. Individual applications running on client computer systems access the HSM cluster using HSM cluster clients running on the client computer systems. The HSMs are accessed via a set of HSM cluster servers that monitor the synchronization of the cryptographic keys. Synchronization of the HSMs is maintained by the HSM cluster clients. The HSM cluster clients replicate key-addition and key-deletion operations across the HSM cluster. When a new key is created by a particular HSM, a prefix associated with the particular HSM is added to the identifier associated with the new key to avoid key-namespace collisions. If the set of cryptographic keys becomes unsynchronized across the HSM cluster, applications may continue read-only cryptographic operations while the HSM cluster is resynchronized by the HSM cluster clients.

  • Patent number: 10456198
    Abstract: Systems and methods for the controlled delivery of laser light to target tissue using an improved waveguide. A waveguide controls transmission of wave energy to a target based on direct contact with the target. The waveguide comprises a propagation medium, a cladding causing the electromagnetic wave to be internally reflected in the medium, and an interface formed in the cladding and configured for direct contact with the target. A portion of the laser light penetrates through the cladding at the interface and propagates into the target while a portion internally reflects within the propagation medium.

  • Patent number: 10439814
    Abstract: A resource generates and provides discovery configuration information to a network appliance. The network appliance validates the discovery configuration information, such as by validating a token within the discovery configuration information, then is configured using at least the discovery configuration information and passes at least a portion of the discovery configuration information to a network disjoint from that which connects the resource and the network appliance. This portion of discovery configuration information may include service advertisement information, routing information for traversing the network topology, and in some embodiments, the validation token.
