  • Publication number: 20200242848
    Abstract: An improved augmented reality (A/R) headset system is described. The system can feature a position sensor to determine a user's real-world view, an environmental sensor to determine objects obstructed from the real-world view, and a processing unit to correlate the data such that a merged graphical image corresponds to the user's real-world view. For example, the image can be a representation of objects that are obstructed in the user's real-world view. In addition, the image can be dynamic and change as the real-world view of the user changes, as the user rotates his head. In some instances, the position sensor includes an accelerometer, a magnetometer, a gyroscope, and/or a GPS device and the environmental sensor collects sonar data.

  • Publication number: 20200243161
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to systems and methods for pathogen detection using next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis of a sample. Embodiments may apply alignment algorithms (e.g., SNAP and/or RAPSearch alignment algorithms) to align individual sequence reads from a sample in a next-generation sequencing (NGS) dataset against reference genome entries in a classified reference genome database. Embodiments of the present invention may include classifying, filtering, and displaying results to a clinician that can then quickly and easily obtain the results of the sequencing to identify a pathogen or other genetic material in a sample that is being tested. A negative sample and a corresponding database can be used to remove contaminants from a list of candidate pathogens. Thus, embodiments are directed to a system that is configured to filter the results of a sequencing alignment and classify a sample quickly.

  • Patent number: 10718856
    Abstract: A vehicle sensor calibration system for self-driving vehicles can include a turntable on which a sensor system including a LIDAR sensor is positioned. A plurality of fiducial targets can be positioned around the turntable to enable calibration of the sensor system, and a control mechanism can automatically rotate the turntable when the sensor system is positioned on the turntable. The system can include one or more computing systems that receive a data log corresponding to sensor data recorded by the sensor system as the sensor system rotates on the turntable, and analyze the sensor data to determine a set of calibration parameters to calibrate the sensor system.

  • Patent number: 10685321
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for advantageously forecasting an inventory of a product having a particular duration (e.g., video content). The technique can include determining the particular configuration (e.g., maximum number of impressions, maximum amount of time permitted) of breaks identified within an impression log. Based on the number of breaks and the configurations of the breaks, the technique can forecast a future inventory of the product. In some implementations, the disclosed technique can identify an amount of a previous break that was not filled with video content. These forecasts can enable product sellers to better communicate with their customers, negotiate supply contracts, price their products, plan for business operations, etc.

  • Patent number: 10687153
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to hearing devices configurable between open fit and closed fit configurations at different times through actuation of one or more acoustic valves located in one or more corresponding sound passages of the hearing device. The one or more acoustic valves of the hearing device are adaptively controlled based on context detected by one or more sensors. The context may be, but is not limited to, a mode of operation of the hearing devices which may include, for example, an audio content playback mode and a voice communication mode. The actuatable valves may be actuatable in situ without having to remove the hearing device from the user's ear thereby enabling the user to experience the benefit of a closed fit or an open fit depending on the user's desire or other context.

  • Patent number: 10678520
    Abstract: An algorithm data store may contain information about a pool of available algorithms. An algorithm analysis engine may compare the information about each of the pool of available algorithms with at least one requirement associated with the current algorithm executing in the live environment. Based on the comparison, the algorithm analysis engine may select at least one of the pool of available algorithms as a potential replacement algorithm and transmit an indication of the selected at least one potential replacement algorithm. A deployment platform may include a lifecycle manager that manages execution of the current algorithm in the live environment. The lifecycle manager may also receive the indication of the selected at least one potential replacement algorithm, manage execution of the at least one potential replacement algorithm in a shadow environment, and report performance information associated with the current algorithm and the at least one potential replacement algorithm.
