  • Patent number: 10194770
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and articles to provide customized control of a cooking appliance. A user provides a selection of one or more ending characteristics for a food product. A processor-based device determines one or more output food preparation parameters based on the user's selection of the one or more ending characteristics. Measurements of temperature, power, or other characteristics may be obtained during cooking process. A cooking program controlling the cooking process may be revised or updated based at least in part on the obtained measurements or analysis of the measurements. Estimations or projections about the cooking process may be presented to a user via a user interface of the cooking appliance or a user interface of a computing device (e.g., smartphone) associated with the user. The processor-based device may autonomously detect a temperature scale of a temperature setting input by a user without requiring the user to specify the temperature scale.

  • Publication number: 20180307687
    Abstract: Embodiments are disclosed for a query processing system configured to receive user submitted questions and provide answers to the user submitted questions. In an example embodiment a system receives a user query from a user. The system then determines if a response is available that matches an intent of the user query above a threshold confidence level. The systems then prompts the user for permission to enable access to the user query to other users. If permission is granted, the system then enables access to the user query to the user users. Responses to the user query received from one or more of the other users are then output to the user, for example, via a computing device or an appliance. Further, in some embodiments, feedback received from the user regarding output responses can be used to train machine learning models associated with the system.

  • Patent number: 9851109
    Abstract: A method of operating a heating device includes heating air in a heating device chamber. The method further includes exhausting outgoing air from the heating device chamber via a first flow path through which the outgoing air flows in a first direction, and supplying incoming air to the heating device chamber via a second flow path through which the incoming air flows in a second direction opposite to the first direction. The latent heat in the outgoing air in the first flow path is transferred to the incoming air in the second flow path thereby condensing water vapor contained in the outgoing air to produce liquid water.

  • Publication number: 20170214588
    Abstract: Various embodiments collect unproductive resources in a network infrastructure. In one embodiment, data relating to resources of a network infrastructure is collected. An analytics model is selected based on a type of the collected data. The selected analytics model is executed to classify a resource unproductive or productive, and to assign a corresponding confidence level. An action plan for each confidence level is determined and the action plan is executed for the resource. The collected data may include resource utilization information, hypervisor information, cloud related meta-data, user knowledge and system knowledge. When data is only resource data, a resource mining model is selected. When the data includes reference data, a reference mining model is selected. When the data comprises reference data and resource data, a reference mining model is selected.

  • Patent number: 9710700
    Abstract: A system for activity monitoring includes a tracking component, an activity identification component, a procedural component, and a notification component. The tracking component tracks an individual and one or more objects in a work area using a three-dimensional tracking system. The activity identification component identifies an activity of the individual and any of the one or more objects that are affected by the activity. The procedural component determines whether the activity violates one or more procedural rules pertaining to one or more of the individual, the work area, and the one or more objects. The notification component provides a notification of a violation.
