  • Publication number: 20190176862
    Abstract: System includes a controller configured to obtain one or more of a route parameter or a vehicle parameter from discrete examinations of one or more of a route or a vehicle system. The route parameter is indicative of a health of the route over which the vehicle system travels. The vehicle parameter is indicative of a health of the vehicle system. The discrete examinations of the one or more of the route or the vehicle system separated from each other by one or more of location or time. The controller is configured to examine the one or more of the route parameter or the vehicle parameter to determine whether the one or more of the route or the vehicle system is damaged. The system also includes examination equipment configured to continually monitor the one or more of the route or the vehicle system responsive to determining that the one or more of the route or the vehicle is damaged.

  • Patent number: 10243911
    Abstract: Techniques for identifying suggested online content for company administrators to broadcast to company employees via an online social networking service are described. According to various embodiments, a plurality of suggested content items are displayed, via an administrator user interface, to a user associated with a company. A user request is then received via the administrator user interface, the request being to broadcast a recommendation to view a specific content item of the suggested content items to one or more employees of the company that are members of an online social networking service. The recommendation to view the specific content item is then broadcast to the employees of the company.

  • Patent number: 10212121
    Abstract: Techniques for intelligent scheduling of content sharing by company employees via an online social networking service are described. According to various embodiments, a request is received from a member of an online social networking service to share a content item among members in the member's connection network on the online social networking service. Member behavior log data associated with the members in the connection network of the member is then accessed. Thereafter, an optimum sharing time for sharing the content item among the members in the member's connection network is calculated. The content item is then caused to be shared at the optimum sharing time with the members in the member's connection network.

  • Publication number: 20190052471
    Abstract: Toxicity-shield modules are activated with respect to participants of a multiuser virtual environment to shield individual participants from toxic behaviors. The toxicity-shield modules may be customized for each participant of the multiuser virtual environment based on tolerances of each participant for exposure to predetermined toxic behavior(s). The toxicity-shield modules may be activated during the multiuser virtual environment to monitor communications data (e.g., voice-based and/or text-based “chats” and/or a video stream) between the participants and to manage the exposure level of individual participants to the predetermined toxic behavior(s).

  • Publication number: 20190038907
    Abstract: An automated external defibrillator (AED) is described which spends an increased proportion of a rescue in a CPR mode. This is accomplished by use of a single shock protocol which causes the AED to spend less time in shock analysis and delivery activities as compared with the typical multiple shock protocol. An AED of the present invention preferably is configured such that the rescue protocol can be modified or changed easily without the need to remove the battery or use specialized hardware or software. Preferably the shock waveform of the single shock is a biphasic waveform delivering at least 150 Joules of energy and more preferably at least 200 Joules of energy.

This is accomplished by use of a single shock protocol which causes the AED to spend less time in shock analysis and delivery activities as compared with the typical multiple shock protocol. An AED of the present invention preferably is configured at the factory with a single shock protocol as the default rescue protocol. The rescue protocol can be modified or changed easily without the need to remove the battery or use specialized hardware or software. Preferably the shock waveform of the single shock is a biphasic waveform delivering at least 175 Joules of energy and more preferably at least 200 Joules of energy.

  • Patent number: 10120959
    Abstract: For displaying a node of a tree structure, a processor receives an anchor node creation command for a given node of a tree structure of nodes. The given node has one or more branches of parent nodes. The processor further removes the one or more branches of parent nodes and branches of sibling nodes of the given node from a display of the tree structure. In addition, the processor displays the given node as a topmost node of the tree structure.

  • Publication number: 20180262616
    Abstract: Methods for dynamically switching communications to text interactions are provided. In one example, a method includes the steps of receiving a phone call and determining a voice queue wait time exceeds a predetermined threshold. The phone call is routed to a speech-to-text queue based on the determination, and an audio signal associated with the phone call is converted to an instant message interaction.

  • Patent number: 10042354
    Abstract: An industrial control system hardened against malicious activity monitors highly dynamic control data to develop a dynamic thumbprint that can be evaluated to detect deviations from normal behavior of a type that suggest tampering or other attacks. Evaluation of the dynamic thumbprint may employ a set of ranges defining normal operation and reflecting known patterns of interrelationship between dynamic variables.

  • Patent number: 9898656
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of monitoring a subject's neurological condition. In some embodiments, the method includes the steps of analyzing a physiological signal (such as an EEG) from a subject to determine if the subject is in a contra-ictal condition; and if the subject is in a contra-ictal condition, providing an indication (e.g., to the subject and/or to a caregiver) that the subject is in the contra-ictal condition, such as by activating a green light or other visible output. In some embodiments, if the subject is in a pro-ictal condition, the method includes the step of providing an indication (such as a red light) that the subject is in the pro-ictal condition. The invention also provides neurological system monitors.

  • Patent number: 9817391
    Abstract: An industrial control system providing security against tampering or modification generates periodic state thumbprints defining a state of control elements that may be forwarded to a security or safety appliance for comparison to a benchmark thumbprint indicating no tampering. The transmitted state thumbprint may capture not only programs but also configuration and environmental states of the control element.

  • Patent number: 9717924
    Abstract: A defibrillator having a pair of electrodes for delivering an artifact-compensated defibrillation shock and a method thereof is provided. The defibrillator can be deployed rapidly while administering a cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the patient. Upon detection of an end of the CPR operation, a correlation signal indicative of signal corruption is detected and analyzed rapidly to determine an appropriate energy level discharged across the pair of electrodes. Thereafter, a notification signal is sent to the user of the defibrillator prior to delivering the defibrillation shock to the patient. The artifact-compensated defibrillation shock is delivered if for a predetermined period of time no movement is detected.

  • Publication number: 20170061498
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes improving target segments data provided by data management platforms and generating a new target segment that is not available from data management platforms. An advertisement platform compares multiple target segments received from data management platforms. Each of the multiple target segments includes a plurality of items and target group metadata. Then, the advertisement platform retrieves memberships related to the same user or device from the multiple target segments, and determines whether the memberships are logically inconsistent by applying predetermined logical consistency rules. If the memberships are logically inconsistent, the advertisement platform modifies the multiple target segments by eliminating the inconsistent items.
