  • Publication number: 20200379504
    Abstract: An optical neural network is constructed based on photonic integrated circuits to perform neuromorphic computing. In the optical neural network, matrix multiplication is implemented using one or more optical interference units, which can apply an arbitrary weighting matrix multiplication to an array of input optical signals. Nonlinear activation is realized by an optical nonlinearity unit, which can be based on nonlinear optical effects, such as saturable absorption. These calculations are implemented optically, thereby resulting in high calculation speeds and low power consumption in the optical neural network.

  • Patent number: 10749157
    Abstract: A battery package includes a card, a cover, a tray, and batteries. The cover is attached to the card and includes a door and an opening formed in the front of the cover and the peripheral edge of the cover. The door is movable between an open position to provide access to the opening and a closed position. The tray is positioned between the card and the cover and includes multiple receptacles. Each battery is positioned within one of the receptacles. The card includes a recess in the outer edge of the card at a battery removal position. The tray is movable relative to the card and the cover to selectively align one of the receptacles with the opening in the battery removal position. With the door in the open position, the battery in the receptacle in the battery removal position is accessible through the opening.

  • Publication number: 20200121180
    Abstract: Diagnostic eyewear systems are disclosed that facilitate the evaluation of and adjustment to monovision as a solution for near vision loss experienced by corrected nearsighted and normal vision persons. The diagnostic eyewear include a magnifying lens and a non-magnifying lens, and a frame that allows the user to switch the locations of the magnifying and non-magnifying lenses from one eye to another. Multiple diagnostic eyewear may be provided as a set, with the magnifying lens of each eyewear having a different magnification power. The diagnostic eyewear may be used to determine magnification eye preference, magnification strength and distance eye preference in order to facilitate acclimation to monovision.

  • Patent number: 10617262
    Abstract: A cutting board system that includes a cutting surface that removeably cooperates with at least one side of a base portion of the cutting board system. In a preferred aspect, the cutting surface includes a cutting layer and an indicator layer that underlies the cutting layer. Exposure of the indicator layer provides an indication as to degradation or use of the cutting layer and is indicative of desired replacement of the cutting surface. In a more preferred embodiment, respective cutting layers are associated with the generally opposite sides of the indicator layer such that the cutting surface is reversible.

  • Patent number: 10594665
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for securely obtaining trusted information in an online environment. A first entity stores trusted information from a third entity. A second entity retrieves the trusted information from the first entity. In response to a request from a computing device of the third entity, the first entity identifies a set of attributes selected by the second entity. The first entity identifies, from a profile of the third entity, a set of values that correspond to the set of attributes. The first entity may immediately transmit the set of values to the second entity or may first cause the set of values to be presented to the third entity, for example, in an electronic form. The form may allow some of the values to be editable by the third entity and may prevent other of the values to be edited.

  • Patent number: 10577163
    Abstract: A battery package includes a card, a cover attached to the card, a tray positioned between the card and the cover, batteries, and tabs. The cover includes an opening and a door. The door is movable between an open position to provide access to the opening and a closed position. The tray includes a plurality of receptacles in which are positioned the batteries. Each tab is removably attached to one of the batteries and is positioned between the cover and the battery. The tray is rotatable relative to the card and the cover about an axis of rotation to selectively align one of the receptacles with the opening in a battery removal position. With the door in the open position, the tab attached to the battery in the receptacle in the battery removal position is accessible through the opening from the front of the cover and the peripheral edge of the cover.

  • Patent number: 10454832
    Abstract: Systems and methods of a balancing data requests over a computer network are provided. The system can receive a request for content to be rendered in a content slot on a computing device. The content slot can be coded with a default timer value. The system can execute a real-time content selection process to identify content items that each have a magnitude. The system can determine a timer value based on the magnitudes, and transmit the timer value to the computing device to override the default timer value to cause the computing device to replace a first content item rendered in the content slot upon expiration of the timer.

  • Publication number: 20190314070
    Abstract: A low profile dorsal plate for internal fixation of a radius fracture can comprise a single longitudinal portion having a distal end, and a transverse portion fixed across the distal end at an angle of about 15° to about 30° from perpendicular with respect to the longitudinal portion. The transverse portion can also have a z-axis curvature, or can be flexible to form a z-axis curvature, where the z-axis curvature corresponds to a dorsal contour of a distal radius. Also included is a first plurality of screw holes aligned within the longitudinal portion and a second plurality of screw holes aligned within the transverse portion.
