  • Publication number: 20200396269
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for broadcasting data streams. The CDN allows a streamer to stream live (in realtime) on a network(s), such as the Internet, for a live audience to view and to interact with the live entertainment. Each of the broadcast clients send data streams to the CDN via an input node, wherein the CDN output a selected media stream to one or more selected viewing clients via the output node. The architecture of the CDN contains one or more System Racks. Each of the System Racks contains multiple media channels. In operation, the data stream of a broadcasting client is sent to the CDN and distributed into selected channels. The data streams in each of the selected channels are outputted to viewing clients of a corresponding type.

  • Patent number: 10774385
    Abstract: The invention provides an assay useful in predicting risk of 5-fluorouracil (FU) toxicity in a subject. The subject may be screened for the presence of at least one TYMS polymorphism and/or at least one DPYD polymorphism. Suitable TYMS and DPYD polymorphisms are provided. The presence of one or more of the polymorphisms indicates an increased risk of developing FU toxicity; a negative result may indicate a decreased risk of developing FU toxicity.

  • Patent number: 10721705
    Abstract: A system for adjusting a relevance weight value for a content item is described. The system comprises a content delivery module configured to deliver a plurality of content items to a device via a network. The content items are displayed on the device. A user provides a feedback input that is a positive review or a negative review for a content item. The feedback input is transmitted to a relevance weight adjustment module that subtracts a first point value from the relevance weight value associated with a first set of users when a negative review is received for the content item and adds a first point value to the relevance weight value associated with a first set of users when a positive review is received for the content item.
