  • Publication number: 20190384762
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of querying a source dataset in which a user provides a query to a dataset querying system. The system automatically processes both the dataset and the query, so that processing the query influences the processing of the dataset, and/or processing the dataset influences the processing of the query. The system automatically processes the query and the dataset to derive a probabilistic inference of the intent behind the query. The user interacts with the relevance-ranked attempts to answer that query and the system then iteratively improves or varies how it initially processed the query and the dataset, to dynamically generate and display further relevance-ranked attempts to answer that query, to enable the user to iteratively explore the dataset or reach a useful answer.

  • Patent number: 10377510
    Abstract: Various enhanced rocket fairings and associated mechanisms are discussed herein for split fairings with two fairing halves. In some implementations, electrically-actuated base clamps are included to deploy the rocket fairing by applying a spring force between a corresponding fairing half and a payload adapter, which directs movement of the fairing halves upwards and away from the payload adapter until release of the fairing halves. In other implementations, electrically-actuated fairing mechanisms are included to hold together a first fairing half and a second fairing half, and separate the first fairing half from the second fairing half using a spring force. In further implementations, one fairing half includes a tab feature configured to overlap a second fairing half. The tab feature can deform inward under a pressure differential between an exterior and a payload envelope to reduce a gap between the two fairing halves.

  • Patent number: 10142122
    Abstract: This application discloses a method implemented at an electronic device for adding a smart device in a smart home environment. The electronic device receives from a client device a request to add a new smart device to the smart home environment over a first communication network, and the request is issued by a client-side application associated with a user account. In response to the request, the electronic device determines that a new smart device is available to add to the smart home environment via a second communication network. Then, the electronic device connects to the new smart device via the second communication network, obtains device information of the new smart device via the second communication network, and causes a notification to be provided to a user concerning association of the new smart device with the user account and addition of the new smart device to the smart home environment.
