  • Publication number: 20230022038
    Abstract: A combination of materials that may be formed through an extrusion process. The resulting product has at least two layers. By coextruding multiple layers of at least two types of materials together, the final product may have improved mechanical, thermal, electrical, and other properties as compared to the original materials used. Additionally, by using an additive, filler, or doping material in at least one layer of the final product during the extrusion process, the mechanical, thermal, electrical, or other properties of the final product may be further improved.

  • Publication number: 20230013632
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that provide smart alerts to users, e.g., alerts to users about diabetic states that are only provided when it makes sense to do so, e.g., when the system can predict or estimate that the user is not already cognitively aware of their current condition, e.g., particularly where the current condition is a diabetic state warranting attention. In this way, the alert or alarm is personalized and made particularly effective for that user. Such systems and methods still alert the user when action is necessary, e.g., a bolus or temporary basal rate change, or provide a response to a missed bolus or a need for correction, but do not alert when action is unnecessary, e.g., if the user is already estimated or predicted to be cognitively aware of the diabetic state warranting attention, or if corrective action was already taken.

  • Patent number: 11556702
    Abstract: Example embodiments facilitate orchestrating changes of data made (and/or actions specified for execution) in a client-side program with changes of corresponding data made in one or more server-side data objects. An example method includes structuring one or more worksheet relationships between one or more worksheets of a client-side spreadsheet in accordance with one or more data object relationships of one or more data objects of a server-side data structure; determining that one or more operations have been selected for performing on data of one or more of the worksheets; detecting user input operative to initiate performance of the one or more operations; and initiating implementation of the one or more operations (e.g., CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations) in accordance with the one or more worksheet relationships and the one or more data object relationships (e.g., hierarchical relationships).

  • Publication number: 20220392342
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for generating a vehicle-to-vehicle traffic alert and updating a vehicle-usage profile. Various aspects include detecting, via one or more processors associated with a first vehicle, that an abnormal traffic condition exists in an operating environment of the first vehicle. An electronic message is generated and transmitted wirelessly, via a vehicle-mounted transceiver associated with the first vehicle, to alert a nearby vehicle of the abnormal traffic condition and to allow the nearby vehicle to avoid the abnormal traffic condition. The first vehicle receives telematics data regarding operation of the nearby vehicle after the nearby vehicle received the electronic message, and transmits the telematics data to a remote server for updating a vehicle-usage profile associated with the nearby vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20220358109
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method comprises receiving, by a processor, search requests to search a database; receiving a reindex request to reindex information in the database based on a new ontology for the database or a new number of shards for a first index server; initiating, by the processor, generation of a second index for the database while a first index managed by the first index server continues to be used live for responding to received search requests; completing the generation of the second index during a certain period when no search request is sent to the first index server; and in response to the completing, using the second index live for responding to received search requests.
