  • Publication number: 20200355612
    Abstract: In-situ fluorimeters and methods and systems for collecting and analyzing sensor data to predict water source contamination are provided. In one embodiment, a method is provided that includes receiving sensor data regarding a water source. Changepoints may then be calculated within the sensor data and the sensor data may be split into intervals at the changepoints. A machine learning model may then be used to classify the intervals and a predicted contamination event for the water source may be identified based on the classified intervals. In another embodiment, an in-situ fluorimeter is provided. The in-situ fluorimeter comprises one or more UV LEDs centered around a pre-set excitation wavelength (e.g., a TLF excitation wavelength), a bandpass filter, a lens, a photodiode system, a machine learning platform; and an alarm triggered by contamination events, wherein the alarm is calibrated through the machine learning system.

  • Publication number: 20190250907
    Abstract: Techniques for service modification utilizing a split design-assign framework are described. An existing service design for a service is obtained. The input data structure that would be used to build the desired service design from scratch is obtained or computed. A design “add” function is executed using this new input data structure as if building the desired service design for the first time. A difference is determined between the existing service design and the desired service design, resulting in instructions for objects needed to be created, modified, and/or deleted in the existing service design to achieve the desired service design. These instructions are applied to an inventory system, thereby achieving the desired service design.

  • Publication number: 20190052664
    Abstract: Systems and methods for assessing cybersecurity risk of a computer network include the use of a risk model application that is configured to determine an initial cyber risk score value based upon an underwriting process. A cyber risk data stream is sent from the client's computer network to the system processor to periodically calculate an updated cyber risk score based upon actual data. The system processor is adapted to use the data stream to generate client information that is accessible by the client via a web-based client portal. In embodiments, the cyber risk data stream can be actively monitored to identify a threat of a cybersecurity breach.

  • Patent number: 9960980
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide various techniques for monitoring electronic devices at various locations, and cloning behaviors of specific electronic devices across locations and times. Device monitor and control systems may be configured to detect changes in the operational settings of electronic devices at monitored locations, and to transmit control signals to control corresponding electronic devices at other locations. In some cases, separate device monitor and control systems may operate at different locations, where each system may monitor and control a set of local devices and communicate device status detection signals, control signals, and the like to other device monitor and control systems at other locations. In some examples, central device monitor and control systems may operate at network hubs, such as satellite base stations, cable head-ends, and/or central computer servers, to coordinate the device monitoring and cloning of device behaviors between multiple locations.
