  • Patent number: 11429582
    Abstract: Various embodiments are generally directed to techniques for creating and utilizing multidimensional embedding spaces for data objects, such as to condition the data for input to a neural network, for instance. Some embodiments are particularly directed to converting semi-structured data, such as a set of data objects, into object vector sets mapped to a multidimensional embedding space. In many embodiments, an embedding space for a set of data objects may be customized with a set of dimensions that correspond to various characteristics of the set of data objects. These and other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20210381274
    Abstract: Opening and closing a door without the use of one's hands is facilitated. For instance, an apparatus can comprise one or two rotatable rings. For a one ring apparatus, the ring can have an opening so that the inner cross section of the opening of the ring can be pushed with a forearm or knee so that the ring will rotate and the person can then pull on the ring with his/her forearm or knee to open the door. In a two-ring apparatus, two adjacent rings, both with openings, can comprise similar push surfaces. When pushed on the pushed surfaces, the rings will rotate and the cross sections of the openings of the rings come into contact with one another, creating a surface against which a forearm or knee can pull on to open the door. A rotation plane converter can turn a doorknob using the apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20210154424
    Abstract: A tracheostomy airway device is provided comprising an outer cannula (110) having open proximal and distal ends, an inner actuation member insertable into the proximal end of the outer cannula, and one or more retention members (130). The one or more retention members are movable relative to the outer cannula between a retracted configuration in which the tracheostomy device is insertable into, and removable from, the trachea of a patient, and an extended configuration in which the one or more retention members impede removal of the tracheostomy airway device from the trachea. The retention members are operably linked to the inner actuation member or the outer cannula, such that movement of the inner actuation member relative to the outer cannula actuates movement of the one or more retention members between the retracted configuration and the extended configuration.

  • Publication number: 20210086225
    Abstract: A method of applying a coating liquid to an optical fiber is described. An optical fiber is drawn through a guide die into a pressurized coating chamber and through the pressurized coating chamber to a sizing die. The pressurized coating chamber contains a coating liquid. The method includes directing coating liquid in a direction transverse to the processing pathway of the optical fiber in the pressurized coating chamber. The transverse flow of coating liquid counteracts detrimental effects associated with gyres that form in the pressurized coating chamber during the draw process. Benefits of the transverse flow include removal of bubbles, reduction in the temperature of the gyre, improved wetting, homogenization of the properties of the coating liquid in the pressurized coating chamber, and stabilization of the meniscus.
