  • Publication number: 20210052217
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to systems and methods for developing an individual-specific patient baseline for a target patient. An exemplary method involves: determining one or more acuity scores for the target patient; identifying patient health data corresponding to one or more low acuity time periods; storing retrospective clinical data from a group of patients in a second database; comparing the patient health data corresponding to the one or more low acuity time periods with retrospective clinical data from a group of patients by identifying one or more patient subgroups; determining the individual-specific patient baseline using an adaptive baseline selection algorithm, wherein the adaptive baseline selection algorithm is used to determine whether to determine the individual-specific patient baseline using patient health data or using retrospective clinical data from one or more patient subgroups; and displaying, using a user interface, the individual-specific patient baseline.

  • Patent number: 10927590
    Abstract: A computing device determines that one or more users have departed a vehicle. The computing device determines whether a vehicle door is ajar. A power door subsystem is actuated to close the vehicle door when the vehicle door is ajar and the vehicle has no users. A fare is determined when the vehicle door is in a latched position. A message is sent to the at least one of the one or more users indicating the fare.

  • Publication number: 20210046866
    Abstract: Various implementations of a horn system include one or more force sensors disposed on a first portion of a driver air bag module and one or more actuators disposed on a second portion of the driver air bag module. For example, the force sensors may be disposed adjacent a perimeter of a base plate of the driver air bag module, and the actuators may extend inwardly toward the force sensors from an inner surface of a cover of the driver air bag module, or vice versa. To actuate the horn, the cover is moved axially toward the base plate, causing the actuators to apply force to the force sensors. Force signals received from the force sensors are used by one or more processors to determine characteristics of the force received and/or select a control message for communicating to the horn system based on the force signal characteristics.

  • Patent number: 10924577
    Abstract: Systems and methods for delivering fractions of content to user devices before the content is selected or requested (e.g., a pre-delivery of content) are described. In some embodiments, the systems and methods receive an indication that content is available for pre-delivery from a content server to a user device over a network, determine a fraction (e.g., size) of the content available for pre-delivery that satisfies one or more predicted content playback conditions, and causes the determined fraction of the content available for pre-delivery to be delivered to the user device.

  • Patent number: 10917948
    Abstract: A system and method for defrosting or heating are presented. A radio frequency (RF) signal source provides, through a transmission path, an RF signal to an electrode that is proximate to a cavity of a defrosting system. A rate of change of a ratio of a reflected RF power measurement and a forward RF power measurement along the transmission path is determined to have transitioned from a relatively high value to a relatively low value. At a point in time when the determination is made, the RF signal is provided to the electrode for an additional time duration beyond the point in time, and provision of the RF signal to the electrode is ceased when the additional time duration has expired.

  • Publication number: 20210034969
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for training a memory-based prediction system configured to receive an input observation characterizing a state of an environment interacted with by an agent and to process the input observation and data read from a memory to update data stored in the memory and to generate a latent representation of the state of the environment. The method comprises: for each of a plurality of time steps: processing an observation for the time step and data read from the memory to: (i) update the data stored in the memory, and (ii) generate a latent representation of the current state of the environment as of the time step; and generating a predicted return that will be received by the agent as a result of interactions with the environment after the observation for the time step is received.
