  • Publication number: 20210374167
    Abstract: A method executed by a computing device includes determining a set of identigens for each query word of a query to produce sets of identigens. The method further includes interpreting the sets of identigens to produce different first and second query entigen groups. The method further includes generating an interim response based on the first and second query entigen groups. The method further includes determining a set of identigens for each updated query word of an updated query to produce updated sets of identigens. The method further includes selecting one of the first or second query entigen group based on the updated sets of identigens to produce a selected query entigen group. The method further includes generating a response entigen group utilizing the selected query entigen group and generating a response to the query utilizing the response entigen group.

  • Publication number: 20210370311
    Abstract: A method for execution by a computing device includes obtaining a set of media element identigens for media elements of media to produce sets of media element identigens. The sets of media element identigens are possible interpretations of a media element. The method further includes generating a set of relationships between media elements. The relationships provide a list of one or more ways in which the media elements are related. The method further includes processing different permutations of the sets of media element identigens using the set of relationships to generate an entigen group. The entigen group represents a most likely interpretation of the media.

  • Publication number: 20210290324
    Abstract: Certain aspects relate to systems and techniques for medical robotic systems that leverage a versatile, open kinematic chain together with a set of medical-procedure-specific software-controlled actuation constraints in order to perform a variety of medical procedures. The robotic system can be operated in a first mode by identifying a remote center and constraining the actuation of motorized joints to maintain intersection of at least an insertion axis with the remote center. The robotic system can be operated in a second mode by identifying a virtual rail position and constraining the actuation of motorized joints to maintain alignment of the insertion axis along the virtual rail.

  • Patent number: 11100324
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining a set of image segment identigens for each image segment of an image to produce sets of image segment identigens. The sets of image segment identigens are possible interpretations of an image segment. The method further includes generating a set of relationships between image segments. The relationships provide a list of one or more ways in which the image segments are related. The method further includes processing different permutations of the sets of image segment identigens in accordance with the set of relationships to generate an entigen group. The entigen group represents a most likely interpretation of the image.

  • Patent number: 7179927
    Abstract: There is disclosed a method for treating a source of azadirachtin: (a) dissolving said sample in an organic polar solvent; (b) combining the solution of step (a) with an organic non-polar solvent to form a single phase containing the said solvents and dissolved sample; (c) treating said single phase of step (b) with an aqueous salt solution to form an aqueous phase and a phase containing the organic non-polar solvent; and (d) recovering one or other or both of the aqueous phase and the phase containing the organic polar solvent.

  • Patent number: 7179632
    Abstract: There is disclosed a method for preparing allicin which comprises the following steps: (a) mechanically treating a natural source of alliinase to release alliinase therefrom; (b) contacting the mechanically treated alliinase source with an aqueous solution of allicin containing alliin at a concentration greater than that found in raw garlic, whereby the alliin is enzymatically converted to allicin by the alliinase released from the alliinase source; and optionally (c) extracting the resultant allicin into a low boiling point non-polar organic solvent.

  • Patent number: 6042701
    Abstract: An electrodialysis system for desalting water is powered from a direct current power source. The system includes solenoid activated reversing controls and incorporates features which enable the system to operate unattended for continuous (24 hours per day) periods while still using minimal power. A microcontroller unit and a field circuit board control all reversing functions and fail-safe modes. The flow control portion of the system provides for flushing the system electrodes with product water so that chlorine gas generated during the electrodialysis process is picked up by the product water stream.

  • Patent number: 3971493
    Abstract: A transportable container for handling powdered, granulated or other particulated solid materials, having a tapering lower wall portion of hopper form and a discharge opening at its base, the opening being normally closed by a valve member which is movable upwardly into the interior of the container to define an annular opening between its periphery and the internal surface of the container wall, retaining springs being provided within the container and arranged to hold the valve member in its closed position until lifted by, for example, a probe fixed relative to a material receiving member onto which the transportable container may be lowered. This inventionTHIS INVENTION concerns the handling of powdered, granulated or other particulate solid materials. Such materials will hereinafter be termed materials of the kind referred to.Materials of the kind referred to are widely used by the process industries and are normally dispensed for use from bins or hoppers.
