  • Patent number: 11145333
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for capturing and presenting content creation tools of an application used in a video. Application data from the application for the duration of the video is received. The application data includes data identifiers and time markers corresponding to user interaction with an application in a video. The application data is processed to detect tool identifiers identifying tools used in the video based on the data identifiers. For each a tool identifier, a tool label and a corresponding time in the timeline is determined. A tool record storing the tool labels and the corresponding times in association with the video is generated. When a viewer requests to watch the video, the tool record is presented to the viewer in conjunction with the video.

  • Publication number: 20210275036
    Abstract: A pulse sensor is capable of measuring a pulse rate of a wearer at a peripheral artery. In an embodiment, the pulse sensor includes a magnet supported to move responsive to an arterial pulse and a magnetometer configured to detect changes in a magnetic field produced by the magnet. The magnet may include a plurality of ferromagnetic particles disposed in or on a flexible substrate configured to be held adjacent to human skin subject to arterial palpation and a magnetic sensor configured to sense movement of the ferromagnetic particles. A system and method may measure hydration includes using a pulse sensor to measure pulse rate and modulation. The wearer is prompted when the pulse rate and pulse modulation indicate a response to dehydration of the wearer.

  • Publication number: 20200057751
    Abstract: A method for generating and maintaining hierarchical tags with community-based ratings is provided. Tags for media streams are organized into a hierarchical format. Users may select tags from the hierarchical tag database that describes a particular multimedia content. If the user is unable to locate a desired tag, the user may submit a new tag. Upon submission of the new tag, a librarian approves the tag before storing and placing the tag in the hierarchical tag database. Users are also able to rate the quality of the association between the tag and the multimedia content. If a tag is rated low, the tag may be removed from the hierarchical tag database. If the tag is rated highly, display of the tag in a list of tags becomes more prominent.

  • Publication number: 20190230969
    Abstract: A composition of chemically purified soluble mannans from legumes' seeds (e.g. Ceratonia siliqua, Cæsalpinia spinosa Trigonelle foenum-graecum, and Cyamopsis tetragonolobus) and their use in the assembly of palatable dietary supplements is disclosed herein. The fractionation process provides high-quality physiologically soluble, chemically modified and purified homogeneous size polysaccharide fibers, devoid of natural impurities, for example proteins, alkaloids, glycoalkaloids, and/or environmental impurities including heavy metals, agricultural residues and microbial toxins. This process provides hypoallergenic dietary fibers devoid of any potential allergens, cytotoxins, and gastrointestinal toxins.

  • Publication number: 20190046558
    Abstract: PAZ320, a mixture of two galactomannans (GMa and GN/IP?), is being developed to treat diabetes and inflammatory diseases. Both GM? and GM? have a ?(1->4) mannan backbone, with a high density of ?(1->6) linked galactose units. When ingested by diabetic patients, PAZ320 reduces the magnitude of postprandial glucose excursions. PAZ320 functions by binding to enzymes that hydrolyze starch in the gastrointestinal track and thereby reduces steady-state concentrations of low molecular weight sugars like glucose. PAZ320 binds to the ?-amylase enzyme from human and porcine sources and thereby attenuates the rate of amylase-mediated hydrolysis of ?(1->4)-linked glucose polymers (starch and maltohexaose).

  • Patent number: 10186335
    Abstract: An automated high speed under vessel work platform with three automated axes comprising a 360° rotational horizontal axis, a linear horizontal axis via a traversing trolley, and a linear vertical axis via swappable task robots, which can also add fourth and fifth axes capabilities. The automated high speed under vessel work platform has the ability to drive to a specific location by typing the core location into the control software. The work platform can be operated manually via a hand wheel, or locally via a handheld pendant or from the control room. The work platform also has a camera for inspections and verification of the work.

  • Publication number: 20170372215
    Abstract: A system and method for providing customized content recommendations to a user based on extrapolated data is described. The system may receive an answer to a question from a user and determine a second unanswered question having a threshold relationship level with the question. The system may compute a predicted probability that the user would answer the second question correctly, calculate a first comparative skill level of the user among a cohort of similar users, and rank the first comparative skill level of the user against a second comparative skill level of the cohort to determine a skill gap of the user. Further, in some implementations, the system may generate a search query based on the skill gap of the user, and determine recommended content customized to the skill gap of the user.

  • Patent number: 9823718
    Abstract: The description relates to devices, such as computing devices. One example can include a processor secured to a circuit board and a self-biasing heat sink positioned over the processor and secured to the circuit board to complete a Faraday Cage around the processor. The self-biasing heat sink can include a peripheral portion positioned in a first plane and a contact portion positioned in a second different plane and biased against the heat generating component by an interposed biasing portion that is flexed to force the contact portion against the processor.
