  • Publication number: 20200150100
    Abstract: A clamp for chromatography columns has a first seal with a first opening a movable seal with a second opening and a movable coupler. The movable coupler has first and second coupler seals with communicating third and fourth openings. The clamp is arranged for pressing a first chromatography column between the first seal and the first coupler seal and for pressing a second chromatography column between the movable seal and the second coupler seal, such that the first opening fluidly communicates with the second opening through the first chromatography column, the third and fourth openings and the second chromatography column.

  • Publication number: 20200097514
    Abstract: Embodiments seek to improve prefetch hinting by using automated browsing clusters to generate and update hinting models used for machine-generated hints. For example, hinting machines can include browsing clusters that autonomously fetch web pages in response to update triggers (e.g., client web page requests, scheduled web crawling, etc.) and generate timing and/or other hinting-related feedback relating to which resources were used to load the fetched web pages. The hinting machines can use the hinting feedback to generate and/or update hinting models, which can be used for machine-generation of hints. Some embodiments can provide preliminary hinting functionality in response to client hinting requests, for example, when hinting models for a requested page are insufficient (e.g., unavailable, outdated, etc.). For example, without having a sufficient hinting model in place, the hinting machine can fetch the page to generate preliminary hinting feedback, which it can use to machine-generate preliminary hints.

  • Patent number: 10583292
    Abstract: An implantable electronic neuromodulation system includes an implantable pulse generator comprising a controller and a memory. The memory is configured to store an emulated neurosensory signal representative of nerve traffic acquired from a patient equipped with an extra-aortic balloon pump counter-pulsation system or an intra-aortic balloon pump counter-pulsation system. A lead is coupled to the implantable pulse generator. At least one electrode is coupled to the lead. The at least one electrode is positionable in contact with or adjacent to at least one nerve that carries sensory information from baroreceptors. The controller is configured to stimulate the at least one nerve using the emulated neurosensory signal.

  • Patent number: 10521766
    Abstract: A wine inventory management system is provided to assist a user in selecting and locating a wine from a wine collection. In one example, a wine inventory management system may comprise a smart cap having an indicator portion and a processor in communication with the smart cap. The processor in communication with the smart cap may comprise a determining module that determines a set of criteria, a matching module that matches wines to the set of criteria to form a wine set, and an illuminating module that illuminates smart caps of the wine set. The smart caps may be illuminated with different colors, light animation patterns, and with different images in some examples.

  • Publication number: 20190379726
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for avoiding redundant data transfers using delta coding techniques when reliably and opportunistically communicating data to multiple user systems. According to embodiments, user systems track received block sequences for locally stored content blocks. An intermediate server intercepts content requests between user systems and target hosts, and deterministically chucks and fingerprints content data received in response to those requests. A fingerprint of a received content block is communicated to the requesting user system, and the user system determines based on the fingerprint whether the corresponding content block matches a content block that is already locally stored. If so, the user system returns a set of fingerprints representing a sequence of next content blocks that were previously stored after the matching content block.

  • Publication number: 20150350370
    Abstract: Embodiments seek to improve web page loading time using server-machine-driven hint generation for based on client-machine-driven feedback. For example, client computers having page renderers are in communication with content servers and hinting processors. The hinting processors can use hinting feedback from multiple page rendering instances to automatically generate hints for optimizing loading and/or rendering of those pages. In some implementations, in response to page requests from the page renderers, content servers can request hints from hinting processors and send those hints to the requesting page renderers for use in improving the page loading experience. In other implementations, in response to page requests from the page renderers, content servers can instruct the requesting page renderers to contact an appropriate hinting processor and to retrieve appropriate hints therefrom for use in improving the page loading experience.

  • Publication number: 20140164586
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for subscriber-driven resource shifting in an attempt to maximize delivery of requested content to subscribers while minimizing the impact of satisfying those requests to network infrastructure resources. For example, when a media plan subscriber requests access to media content under the media plan, a determination is made that the media can be delivered at an earlier timeframe for a particular cost or at a later timeframe for a lower cost. Accordingly, an offer is presented to the requesting subscriber either to receive the media in the earlier timeframe at a higher cost, or to receive the media at a later timeframe in exchange for a discount (e.g., watch now for $4.99 or in 24 hours for free). Embodiments further handle delayed delivery of the content, notification of the delayed delivery to the subscriber, accounting for the delayed delivery, and/or other related functions.

  • Publication number: 20100198098
    Abstract: A system (10) analyzes signals representative of a subject's brain activity in a signal processor (12) for information indicating the subject's current activity state and for predicting a change in the activity state. One preferred embodiment uses a combination of nonlinear filtering methods to perform real-time analysis of the electro-encephalogram (EEG) or electro-corticogram (ECoG) signals from a subject patient for information indicative of or predictive of a seizure, and to complete the needed analysis at least before clinical seizure onset. The preferred system then performs an output task for prevention or abatement of the seizure, or for recording pertinent data.

  • Publication number: 20100161504
    Abstract: A method and system for use by a Customs Agency for clearing shipments of goods into a country is disclosed. A customs resource application may be used to integrate alert information, news, research, and communications capabilities. Customs inspectors may use the resource application with a conventional computer, or with a portable device in the field as they perform customs inspections. The portable device provides access to alert information regarding shipments that are to be inspected by the inspector, and provides alert resolution capabilities so that the inspector can clear shipments into the country from the location of the inspection and/or shipped goods without requiring the inspector to return to a field office to clear the goods.
