  • Publication number: 20190174126
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed to determine a power state of a device. An example apparatus includes a chart generator to determine respective counts for a plurality of measurements during a calibration period, the measurements indicative of an amount of power drawn by the device, the counts indicating respective numbers of times the respective measurements were detected. The example apparatus also includes a calculator to identify a first threshold based on at least one of the counts, and determine a second threshold. The example apparatus also includes a comparator to compare a measurement to the first threshold and to the second threshold, and a state detector to store an indication that the device is in an indeterminate state if the measurement is greater than the first threshold and less than the second threshold.

  • Publication number: 20180189358
    Abstract: A computing system is described that identifies, based on search histories associated with a group of computing devices for a particular context, a task performed by users of the group of computing devices for the particular context. The computing system determines a first degree of likelihood of the task being performed by the users of the group of computing devices for the particular context and determines a second degree of likelihood of the task being performed by the users of the group of computing devices for a broader context that includes the particular context and at least one other context. Responsive to determining that the first degree of likelihood exceeds the second degree of likelihood by a threshold amount, and that a current context of a particular computing device corresponds to the particular context, the computing system transmits, to the particular computing device, information for completing the task for the particular context.

  • Patent number: 9824147
    Abstract: A method of processing search queries, performed by a search server system, includes receiving, from a client system, a search query and an indicia of an application language associated with an application used at the client system to perform the search query. The search server system responds by identifying a first language and a first probability factor that specifies a likelihood that the search query is in the first language. In response to satisfaction of filter criteria, comprising a determination that the first language corresponds to the application language, the search server system translates the search query to a translated search query in a second language distinct from the application language, obtains search results for the translated search query, and conveys to the client system at least a subset of the search results for the translated search query.

  • Patent number: 8643831
    Abstract: A system for measuring movement of an object includes a source of light for emitting a beam; an object for receiving the beam from the source and reflecting the beam; and a reflective optic for receiving the beam reflected from the object and again reflecting the beam at a first angle. The system also includes a receiver for receiving the reflected beam from the reflective optic. When the object moves in distance, the reflective optic reflects the beam at a second angle. The reflective optic may be replaced by an equivalent refractive optic(s). The receiver measures movement of the object, based on a difference between the first angle and the second angle. The reflective optic may include a cylindrical reflective optic, or a spherical reflective optic. The refractive optic(s) may include a plano hemispheric refractive optic, or a meniscus refractive optic. The receiver may include a quad-cell imaging system, or a focal plane array (FPA). The source of light may include a laser, or any collimated beam source.
