  • Patent number: 10687564
    Abstract: A method of enabling shoe identification comprises receiving at a server apparatus information relating to a unique identity of a shoe comprising a physiological sensor configured for operation in an active mode and a shipping mode. The server apparatus causes an NFC tag to be generated comprising at least the information relating to the unique identity. The method further comprises scanning the tag at a testing device during the manufacture of the shoe. The testing device is configured to test the functioning of the physiological sensor in association with the shoe. When it is determined that the at least one physiological sensor is working properly, the information relating to the unique identity is written to a storage device of the physiological sensor.

  • Publication number: 20200192531
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems and methods are disclosed for automatically generating and displaying a chronology of events, where events may be represented by data objects in one or more databases. Events/data objects may be identified as relevant to an investigation or analysis based on specified criteria. A timeline may be generated based on the identified set of relevant events, and interactive user interfaces may be generated and displayed that present the events as a timeline and a list. Events may be selected from the timeline or the list, may be identified as key events in the chronology, and additional events related to a selected event may be determined and added to the chronology. Timelines may be compared to other data sets, including other timelines, other event lists, and other relevant data.

  • Publication number: 20200159570
    Abstract: A controller may control input to, output from, and execution of a component of a data-processing pipeline via an interface. The interface facilitates replacing the component with a different and/or updated component and/or changing a type of controller that controls the component via the interface. For example, the different types of controllers may facilitate communication between components controlled by other controllers (and/or that aren't controlled by a controller), controllers that generate reproducibility data so that component behavior may be reproduced, controllers that reproduce component behavior, and/or controllers that tune performance of the data-processing pipeline, e.g., by varying input, output, and execution of respective component(s).

  • Publication number: 20200139143
    Abstract: A defibrillator (AED) and method for using a defibrillator using two different ECG analysis algorithms which work sequentially to improve the accuracy of AED shock decisions. A first algorithm, such as (ART), is particularly suited for analysis in the presence of CPR periods. A second algorithm, such as (PAS), is particularly suited for analysis during hands-off periods. The AED switches algorithms depending on the period and on the current analysis of the cardiac rhythm. The inventions thus provide an optimized ECG analysis scheme in a manner that improves the effectiveness of the rescue, resulting in more CPR “hands-on” time, better treatment of refibrillation, and reduced transition times between CPR and electrotherapy.

  • Patent number: 10632372
    Abstract: A game spectating system that provides interfaces and methods for providing game content to viewers. The spectating system obtains game metadata from game systems for games being broadcast by the spectating system according to the API, and generates broadcast content based at least in part on the game metadata. The broadcast content includes user interface (UI) elements for obtaining virtual or physical objects corresponding to the game content. The broadcast content is provided to spectator devices with the broadcasts. The spectating system receives indications of spectators' interactions with the broadcast content from the spectator devices including interactions requesting the virtual or physical objects, and facilitates provisioning or delivery of the objects to respective spectator devices or spectators.

  • Patent number: 10628814
    Abstract: Some systems and methods are directed to a device agnostic architecture configured to control and/or manage the interactions between any front end store systems (e.g., self checkout (SCO) systems) for capturing purchase items and backend systems (e.g., point of sale (POS) subsystems) for completing purchase of the items. The device agnostic architecture can include a translation layer or translation component that mediates communications from and/or between the front end and backend systems. For example, the translation layer maps any commands received from any SCO and/or POS device into execution commands native to receiving systems. For example, back-end processing systems can be configured to control on-line identification of products and/or services for purchase, and manage execution of sales of any goods or services. The translation layer manages communication between SCO devices and the backend systems so each communicates with each other according to their respective formats (e.g.

  • Publication number: 20200110587
    Abstract: During source code compilation to a first processor instruction set architecture (ISA), a compiler encounters a memory ordering constraint specified in the source code. The compiler generates binary emulation metadata that is usable during emulation of emitted machine code instructions of the first ISA, in order to enforce the memory ordering constraint within corresponding machine code instructions of a second ISA. An emulator utilizes this binary emulation metadata during emulation of a resulting executable image at a processor implementing the second ISA. When the emulator encounters a machine code instruction in the image that performs a memory operation, it identifies an instruction memory address corresponding to the instruction. The emulator determines whether the binary emulation metadata identifies the instruction memory address as being associated with a memory ordering constraint.
