  • Publication number: 20190138830
    Abstract: A real time video analytic processor that uses a trained convolutional neural network that embodies algorithms and processing architectures that process a wide variety of sensor images in a fashion that emulates how the human visual path processes and interprets image content. Spatial, temporal, and color content of images are analyzed and the salient features of the images determined. These salient features are compared to the salient features of objects of user interest in order to detect, track, classify, and characterize the activities of the objects. Objects or activities of interest are annotated in the image streams and alerts of critical events are provided to the user. Instantiation of the cognitive processing can be accomplished on multi-FPGA and multi-GPU processing hardware.

  • Patent number: 10036877
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for imaging a target as for example a multiwell plate. A plurality of regions of interest are selected on the target at a system control. The selected plurality of regions of interest are simultaneously imaged to provide an image with the plurality of regions of interest selectively magnified by a microlens array (30) and the regions that are not of interest are rejected by means of a mirrored aperture array, a mask, or selective illumination of the regions of interest of the target.

  • Patent number: 9635034
    Abstract: A platform for providing authorization of electronic communication of secure data to external entities, e.g., vendors, third parties or the like based on an assessment of the data risk associated with communicating the data to the external entity. The secure data that is to be communicated, in the form of specific data items, are identified as well as the associated security standards. The external identity is assessed to ensure their capabilities to properly meet the enterprise/sender's information security, business privacy and continuity standards, along with applicable industry standards. Based on the results of the assessment, remediation action may be required to address critical vulnerabilities or recommendations may be presented to a decision-making entity to grant authorization to electronically communicate the data in question to the external entity. In response to granting authorization, secure communication channels are allocated and established to allow for communication of the data.

    Abstract: Embodiments of the Concrete Form include a form tube, chamfer disk, and one or more form cross-members. The form cross-members are comprised of a center pivot, two bolt guides, which are formed by the cross-members, and an optional clamp. The chamfer disk is a disk that sits atop of the form tube and forms side chamfers when placed upon the form tube when the concrete cures. The chamfer disk is a separate formed or molded piece that will sit on top of the tube form in order to form a chamfer in the concrete. The chanfer disk is a ring-shaped device with the chamfer formed in positive relief under the ring of the chamfer disk. The optional clamp can be used to hold any conduit, tube or any other item during the pour.
