  • Publication number: 20210116430
    Abstract: A gas chromatography instrument is provided that is capable of analyzing samples both quickly and accurately. The detector includes a first unit and a second unit that alternate between collection mode and desorption mode. This allows one unit to collect the sample, while the other unit desorbs another sample before the units switch operations. The alternating collection and desorption modes allows the detector to generate a data point approximately every thirty seconds, with each alternating unit.

  • Publication number: 20210042515
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method used for analyzing documents by an artificial intelligence system is disclosed herein. The method includes uploading at least one document via a frontend which stores the document in a database of the artificial intelligence system; preprocessing at least one document retrieved from the database by splitting the document into individual sentences and calculating a word vector for each sentence of the document; assessing each sentence using a categorization model of the artificial intelligence system by processing the calculated word vector representing the sentence to provide a categorization prediction result; and processing positive categorized sentences in order to calculate an opinion prediction result and a sub-categorization prediction result for each positive categorized sentence based on an opinion prediction model and based on a sub categorization model of the artificial intelligence system.

  • Publication number: 20200393258
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for improving the manner in which different fuel types are used under different driving scenarios. In one example, a method may include determining a travel route based on a particular transportation request input by a customer into a software application, where the software application selects a vehicle from a plurality of available vehicles to fulfill the transportation request based on a relative fuel octane content of fuel stored by the available vehicles. In this way, appropriate fuel type usage for different driving scenarios may be improved, and non-appropriate fuel type usage may be avoided.

  • Patent number: 10728469
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for generating hyperspectral images, which may correspond to a three dimensional image in which two dimensions correspond to a spatial field of view and a third dimension corresponds to a frequency domain absorption spectrum. Disclosed systems and methods include those employing dual optical frequency comb Fourier transform spectroscopy and computational imaging for generation of hyperspectral images. Such a combination advantageously allows for imaging systems to exhibit low size, weight, and power, enabling small or handheld sized imaging devices.

  • Patent number: 10573450
    Abstract: A novel and useful degauss circuit for use with electromagnetic door locks. The door lock circuit is configured to provide a constant current to the electromagnetic coil load. A pulse width modulation (PWM) controller varies the frequency and/or duty cycle to a switch in series with the coil. Coil current feedback is used to adjust the PWM frequency and/or duty cycle so as to maintain the current through the coil at a certain level to maintain a desired holding force on the door lock. A degauss circuit inline with the current flowing through the coil is provided. When triggered either in an uncontrolled or controlled manner, a series RLC circuit that includes the coil inductance and resistance causes ringing to occur whereby the coil current reverses direction with sufficient amplitude and duration to degauss the coil.
