  • Patent number: 10749875
    Abstract: Described technologies enhance cybersecurity and facilitate computing system account usage by configuring a primary account and a supplementary account together in a security configuration lifecycle. The primary account user may be a parent or other adult, while the supplementary account user may be a child or other person with less capacity than the primary user. Over time, the accounts may transition together through security configurations to give more capabilities to the supplementary user, e.g., login separate from the primary user, and to reduce the control of the primary user over the supplementary account. Security configuration lifecycle stages are implemented, e.g., using capability-security pair data structures and account security configuration code. Despite the security configuration linkage of the accounts, each account may have its own personalized content and its own recommendation history.

  • Publication number: 20200249755
    Abstract: Systems and methods for eye tracking calibration in a wearable system are described. The wearable system can present three-dimensional (3D) virtual content and allow a user to interact with the 3D virtual content using eye gaze. During an eye tracking calibration, the wearable system can validate that a user is indeed looking at a calibration target while the eye tracking data is acquired. The validation may be performed based on data associated with the user's head pose and vestibulo-ocular reflex.

  • Publication number: 20200155656
    Abstract: ILC2 cells play a role in the pathogenesis of graft versus host disease (GvHD) and idiopathic pneumonia syndrome (IPS), both conditions associated with allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Infusion of IL-33 activated ILC2 cells into patients with ongoing GvHD or IPS, or prior to onset of GvHD or IPS in susceptible patients, substantially ameliorates the disease and improves survival.

  • Publication number: 20200053094
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a user interface, the user interface being communicably coupled to processing circuitry configured to operate a research browser plugin, the research browser plugin, via the processing circuitry, being configured to determine a user's access permissions to a document, the document being stored at network locations in document versions that are categorized by a predetermined hierarchy. Additionally, the research browser plugin is configured to generate, on the user interface, a one-click control and associate the one-click control with a resource locator (e.g., URL) of a selected document version, the selected version being the highest version in the hierarchy to which the user has access permissions, and retrieve the document associated with the resource locator in response to one-click activation of the one-click control.

  • Patent number: 9955009
    Abstract: Methods and systems determining customer satisfaction in a work environment via prescriptive analytics. Self-reported data related to the perception of an agent with respect to customer satisfaction in a work environment (e.g., a call center) can be collected via an interface (e.g., an agent dashboard) that allows the agent to enter the self-reported data regarding the customer satisfaction. The self-reported data can then be correlated with an actual customer satisfaction score associated with the agent to derive data indicative of an interaction between the agent and a customer(s). Feedback data can then be provided via the interface indicating a correctness of the self-reported data based on correlating the self-reported data with the actual customer satisfaction score.
