  • Patent number: 10929372
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed herein for updating a knowledge graph based on a user confirmation. A media guidance application receives a user communication and isolates a term of the user communication. The media guidance application identifies a candidate component of a knowledge graph associated with the term. The media guidance application requests user input directed to confirming whether the term is associated with the candidate component. In response to receiving the user input, the media guidance application modifies a strength of association between the term and the component.

  • Publication number: 20200337272
    Abstract: Systems and methods for continuous monitoring of the behavior of animals, such as small rodents, are provided. Monitoring can include video, audio, and other sensor modalities. In one embodiment, the system can include cameras, arena design, environmental sensors, and ultrasonic sensors. The system uniquely provides a continuous long-term monitoring system suitable for mouse behavioral study. Further provided is a neural network based tracker configured for use with video data acquired by the monitoring system. 3 different neural network architectures have been tested to determine their performance on genetically diverse mice under varying environmental conditions. It has been observed that that an encoder-decoder segmentation neural network achieves high accuracy and speed with minimal training data.

  • Patent number: 10813744
    Abstract: An intraocular implant (IOI) includes a lens structure with variable optical power, a sensor that detects an optical accommodation response, a rechargeable power storage device, a recharging interface, a wireless communication interface, and a controller. The controller can receive information from the sensor indicating an optical accommodation response, control the lens structure to vary the variable optical power based on the information received from the sensor, control the recharging interface to recharge the rechargeable power storage device, and further control the recharging interface to receive power for operation of the IOI, and transmit and receive information through the wireless communication interface.

  • Publication number: 20200327998
    Abstract: Methods, devices and system for asymmetric inertial confinement fusion are disclosed. One method includes a fixing in position a target capsule comprising an inertial confinement fusion fuel, where the target capsule is substantially spherical. The method further includes for applying an oscillatory compression to the target capsule. The oscillatory compression includes compression at a first time in a radial direction orthogonal to a diametric axis of the target capsule, and compression at a second time along the diametric axis to drive the target capsule into driven into an ovoid shape. The oval shaped target can implode upon being further driven at a third time.

  • Publication number: 20200277986
    Abstract: A v-clamp is used to join tubular bodies having end flanges in order to form a joint therebetween. Such tubular bodies are employed in heavy-duty and moderate and light-duty applications including, but not limited to, industrial, oil and gas, sewage, agriculture, and automotive applications. The v-clamp can include a band, a closure mechanism, and a set of bearings. The v-clamp may furnish a more evenly and uniformly distributed clamping force around a circumference of the v-clamp and to the tubular body end flanges than previously demonstrated.

  • Publication number: 20200262403
    Abstract: A work machine with a mechanical brake touch-up system includes a power source that provides power to a rotational element. The work machine includes a brake that is configured with a piston to selectively engage a frictional element rotationally coupled to the rotational element, a position sensor for generating a position signal of the piston, and a control valve configured to supply hydraulic pressure to the piston to selectively apply a retarding torque to the frictional element, a speed sensor for generating a rotational speed signal. The work machine includes a touch-up controller which is configured to detect a retarding condition of the work machine based on the speed signal, and, upon detection of a retarding condition, control the position of the piston to a touch-up position between an engaged and retracted position.

  • Publication number: 20200259905
    Abstract: In various embodiments described herein, a content extension and programming interface enable third-party content extensions to supply transformation and filtering actions and associated criteria to native web clients on a system. In one embodiment, the native web client loads data for a third-party content filtering, blocking, or transformation extension and conducts extension defined actions without requiring additional intermediation by the third-party content. In one embodiment, a third-party application downloaded to a mobile or handheld device can include an extension data object that provides actions and triggers that are loaded by a native web client of the system. The third-party application is not required to execute continuously and can exit or be terminated once the web client retrieves the extension data object.
