  • Publication number: 20210117624
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes receiving a user input comprising a natural-language utterance by an assistant xbot from a client system associated with a user, determining a semantic representation of the user input based on a structural ontology defining a labeling syntax for parsing the natural-language utterance to semantic units comprising actions, objects, and attributes, wherein the semantic representation embeds at least one object within at least one action and declares at least one attribute of the embedded object to be acted upon, sending a request based on the semantic representation to an agent for executing a task corresponding to the user input, receiving results of the executed task mapped to a structure determined by the structural ontology from the agent, and sending from the assistant xbot to the client system instructions for presenting a response based on the results of the executed task.

  • Publication number: 20200376238
    Abstract: A method of using a catheter assembly for inserting in a fluid filled space in a body includes providing a main body having a first end portion and a second end portion. The first end portion is positioned within the fluid filled space. The second end portion is adjusted to extend outwardly from the fluid filled space when the first end portion is positioned within the fluid filled space. A catheter tip is connected to the second end portion of the main body. The catheter tip includes a housing having a cavity defined therein and a rotating element positioned within the fluid filled space. The rotating element is rotated within the cavity of the housing to impart movement of the first end portion of the main body within the fluid filled space.

  • Publication number: 20190351235
    Abstract: A system for stimulating a sympathetic chain includes an electrode assembly that is configured to attach to a bone in proximity to a targeted portion of the sympathetic chain. The electrode assembly includes a cathode and an anode. The system also includes a power supply connected to the electrode assembly and configured to deliver power to the electrode assembly. The electrode assembly generates an electrical field between the cathode and the anode when power is delivered to the electrode assembly. The electrical field reaches the targeted portion of the sympathetic chain to provide electrical stimulation to the targeted portion of the sympathetic chain.

  • Publication number: 20190283711
    Abstract: A detection and warning assembly for preventing sneak attacks includes a housing. A power module and a microprocessor are coupled to and positioned in the housing. The microprocessor is operationally coupled to the power module. A speaker, a camera, a light, and a sensor are coupled to the housing and are operationally coupled to the microprocessor. Each of a plurality of the housings is configured to couple to an exterior surface the vehicle such that a respective blind spot of the vehicle is covered by the sensor. The sensor is configured to detect a movement in the blind spot and to communicate the movement to the microprocessor. The microprocessor is positioned to selectively activate the speaker to emit a warning sound, the camera to capture an image, and the light to illuminate the blind spot. An occupant of the vehicle is protected from surprise by a person approaching the vehicle.
