  • Publication number: 20200160961
    Abstract: One variation of a method includes: serving a class—spanning a duration of time, including an audio track of a trainer narrating an exercise routine of a first type, and associated with a first difficulty level—to a user; if the user exits the class within a first time window during replay of the class, presenting a first list of classes—spanning durations approximating the duration and including audio tracks of trainers narrating exercise routines of the first type—to the user; and, if the user exits the class within a second time window succeeding the first time window, serving a prompt to select a second class—from a second list of classes—spanning durations less than the first duration and including audio tracks of trainers narrating exercise routines of difficulty levels less than the first difficulty level—for completion during a remainder of the exercise session to the user.

  • Publication number: 20200095970
    Abstract: A power generation system is disclosed. The power generation system may include a first engine and a second engine. The power generation system may include an alternating current (AC) generator coupled to the first engine and a solid state power supply connected to the AC generator via a first circuit. The power generation system may include a first energy storage device associated with the first engine, connected to the solid state power supply via a second circuit, and a first engine control module (ECM) associated with the first engine, connected to the solid state power supply via the second circuit. The power generation system may include a second energy storage device associated with the second engine, connected to the solid state power supply via the second circuit, and a second ECM associated with the second engine, connected to the solid state power supply via the second circuit.

  • Publication number: 20190384747
    Abstract: A data analysis system is proposed for providing fine-grained low latency access to high volume input data from possibly multiple heterogeneous input data sources. The input data is parsed, optionally transformed, indexed, and stored in a horizontally-scalable key-value data repository where it may be accessed using low latency searches. The input data may be compressed into blocks before being stored to minimize storage requirements. The results of searches present input data in its original form. The input data may include access logs, call data records (CDRs), e-mail messages, etc. The system allows a data analyst to efficiently identify information of interest in a very large dynamic data set up to multiple petabytes in size. Once information of interest has been identified, that subset of the large data set can be imported into a dedicated or specialized data analysis system for an additional in-depth investigation and contextual analysis.

  • Publication number: 20190360900
    Abstract: This application relates generally to a method and apparatus to deposit particles onto one or more coupons, and harvest particles from one or more coupons, which may beneficially provide a more uniform or localized distribution of particles over a specified area on each coupon. The application relates to a method and apparatus for depositing particles onto one or more coupons using a sieve. The application also relates to a method and apparatus for depositing particles onto one or more coupons using a dust storm. The particle loadings achieved on each coupon or across an individual coupon may be substantially uniform. The application further relates to a laser-based method and apparatus for transferring particles deposited at localized points on a source coupon to a different substrate for further use.

  • Patent number: 7292958
    Abstract: Systems and methods for predicting features of materials of interest. Reference data are analyzed to deduce relationships between the input data sets and output data sets. Reference data includes measured values and/or computed values. The deduced relationships can be specified as equations, correspondences, and/or algorithmic processes that produce appropriate output data when suitable input data is used. In some instances, the output data set is a subset of the input data set, and computational results may be refined by optionally iterating the computational procedure. To deduce features of a new material of interest, a computed or measured input property of the material is provided to an equation, correspondence, or algorithmic procedure previously deduced, and an output is obtained. In some instances, the output is iteratively refined. In some instances, new features deduced for the material of interest are added to a database of input and output data for known materials.
