  • Patent number: 11163542
    Abstract: A system and method for facilitating automatically adjusting a user interface display screen or portion thereof. An example method includes determining context information associated with data, wherein the data is maintained in accordance with a data model; generating a signal when the context information changes; and employing the signal to automatically configure one or more characteristics of a user interface architecture, resulting in an adjusted user interface architecture. The context information may include information specifying one or more attributes relating to the data model. Generating may further include analyzing the one or more attributes to determine a modification to be made to the user interface architecture and then rendering a user interface display screen based on a modified user interface architecture.

  • Publication number: 20200385792
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods and kits for detecting a nucleic acid or antigen in a sample using a universal array platform. For example, a nucleic acid can be detected by amplifying at least a portion of a nucleic acid from a sample using a primer pair comprising a first primer comprising a label and a first oligonucleotide sequence that hybridizes with a first strand of the portion of the nucleic acid and a second primer comprising a second oligonucleotide sequence that hybridizes with a second strand of the portion of the nucleic acid; contacting the amplicon, if present, to a plurality of single-stranded oligonucleotide capture sequences each affixed to a solid support; applying a colloidal detection reagent to the solid supports; washing the solid supports with a wash solution; and detecting the colloidal detection reagent. The present disclosure further relates to specific capture and tether oligonucleotide sequences.

  • Publication number: 20190325054
    Abstract: A computer system and method for performing 3D geolocation within an urban environment to at least a building floor level by combining geocoded locations with local dimensional data available from municipal agencies processed to calculate estimated elevation of building floors in a target building. The local dimensional data is building inventory information that includes the ground elevation of the target building, the number of above-ground floors in the target building and the height of the target building. The system is configured to calculate the building floor level of a particular floor in the target building from the local data. Standard equations for estimating the height of a building are adapted to generate the elevation of the particular floor within the target building relative to the ground elevation of the target building.

  • Patent number: 9891897
    Abstract: A system and method for facilitating characterizing data to enable dynamic generation of a user interface feature based on the data. An example method includes maintaining data in accordance with a data model accessible to webpage computer code, wherein the data model is adapted to be populated with data associated with one or more data attributes in the data model; and providing a signal, identifying a data attribute, from the data model to webpage computer code to facilitate dynamic construction of one or more user interface features characterizing a rendering of a webpage. Data in the data model is characterized by one or more data attributes, each of which is associated with an attribute definition. The example method may further include organizing one or more attribute definitions in the data model as computing objects containing characterizations of the one or more data attributes.
