  • Patent number: 10930100
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a physical area for unauthorized access by a user of a wireless device, includes scanning for signals from a wireless device, detecting a wireless signal from a wireless device, determining a wireless device ID associated with the wireless signal, determining whether the wireless device ID matches a wireless ID in an authorized or unauthorized ID list and in response to determining that the wireless device ID matches a wireless ID in the unauthorized wireless ID list, activate a security alert. The method may further include in response to determining, that the wireless device ID does not match a wireless ID in the authorized wireless ID list nor the unauthorized wireless ID list, receiving, signal strength information associated with the detected wireless signal for a predetermined time interval and determining a pattern as a function of time of the received signal strength.

  • Publication number: 20210046867
    Abstract: A vehicle automated audio reminder apparatus for reminding parents to check for children and pets when exiting a vehicle includes a housing defining a housing cavity. A front side of the housing has a speaker aperture and a button aperture each extending through to the housing cavity. A first and second engagement member couple the housing under a dash panel of a vehicle. A speaker is coupled to the housing within the speaker aperture and a microphone is coupled within the speaker. A record button is coupled within the button aperture. A digital recorder is coupled within the housing cavity to stores an audio message through the microphone when the record button is depressed and reproduce the audio message through the speaker when activated. A microprocessor activates the digital recorder when a door of the vehicle is opened.

  • Publication number: 20200392578
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure include methods of sequencing antibody chains from hybridomas. In some embodiments, the methods comprise contacting hybridoma RNA with a constant region-specific reverse transcription primer, and contacting the hybridoma RNA with a reverse transcriptase with terminal nucleotidyl transferase activity, thereby creating a heavy chain and/or light chain cDNA. Such methods further comprise contacting the cDNA with a template switch oligonucleotide comprising a universal PCR primer sequence, thereby generating a single stranded cDNA, and performing second strand synthesis on the single stranded cDNA, thereby producing a double stranded heavy chain and/or light chain cDNA. A heavy chain and/or light chain sequencing template is produced, and the methods further comprise sequencing the template by Sanger sequencing. Also provided are kits that find use, e.g., in practicing the methods of the present disclosure.

  • Publication number: 20200387551
    Abstract: In some examples, example-based ontology training for natural language query processing may include identifying, based on an analysis of a query by using an ontology, a term in the query that includes an unknown meaning. The query may be in a natural language format. Based on a context of the query, a proposed definition of the term may be inferred. Based on the proposed definition of the term, a request may be generated to provide a definition of the term, or to modify the proposed definition of the term. A reply to the request may be received. The reply may be in the natural language format. The reply may be analyzed to update the proposed definition of the term. The ontology may be modified to include the updated definition of the term. Based on the modified ontology, a response to the query may be generated.

  • Patent number: 10728170
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention disclose a method, computer program product, and system for determining a number of allowed lists and initiating a change in a number of lists. The method includes receiving a defined list count of a plurality of lists of a coupling facility structure, monitoring list usage by the coupling facility structure, determining that additional lists are required by the coupling facility structure above the defined list count, based on the monitored list usage. The method includes, in response to determining that additional lists are required by the coupling facility structure, determining a new number of lists, where the new number of lists are based on an availability of space for the new number of lists on the coupling facility structure and the new number of lists exceeds the defined list count. The method includes rebuilding coupling facility structure based upon the determined new number of lists.
