  • Publication number: 20200394194
    Abstract: A method includes generating vertical-specific (VS) records from data sources. Each VS record includes a vertical identifier and a set of VS data fields. The method further comprises generating, for each VS record, an entity partial (EP) record that includes EP data fields populated from the VS data fields. The EP data fields include an entity ID that indicates an entity for the EP record, a source data field that identifies a data source, and an EP searchable data field including data that is descriptive of the entity. The method further comprises generating a search record for each entity ID by combining data from EP records. The data from the EP records is combined based on the source data included in the EP records. Each search record includes a search record searchable data field that includes data from one or more of the EP searchable data fields.

  • Publication number: 20200390350
    Abstract: Dual sensor system for continuous blood pressure monitoring during transcatheter heart valve therapies (TVT), such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), comprises a controller, a support guidewire for TVT containing a first Fabry-PĂ©rot (FP) optical pressure sensor near its distal end, and a pigtail catheter for delivery of contrast medium containing a second FP optical pressure sensor near its distal end. For example, for TAVR, the support guidewire is positioned to place the first optical pressure sensor within the left ventricle (LV) for monitoring LV pressure, the pigtail catheter is positioned in the aorta to place the second optical pressure sensor in the ascending aorta for direct measurement of pressure in the aorta, downstream of the aortic valve, enabling continuous monitoring of blood pressure at both sensor locations during TAVR. The controller may be configured to interface with standard patient monitoring systems.

  • Patent number: 10353977
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a search query from a user device and identifying function records using the search query. Each function record includes an application access mechanism (AAM) and application state information (ASI). The AAM includes a reference to a native application and indicates one or more operations for the application to perform. The ASI describes a state of the application after the application has performed the operations. Identifying the function records may be based on matches between terms of the search query and terms of the ASI included in the function records. The techniques further include selecting AAMs from the identified function records and identifying one or more AAMs of the selected AAMs that are compatible with the user device. The techniques also include transmitting the identified AAMs to the user device and refraining from transmitting any of the selected AAMs that are not compatible with the user device.

  • Patent number: 10324987
    Abstract: An application search system stores information describing device capabilities used by one or more applications. The device capabilities describe interfaces with hardware on the user device. The application search system identifies the application capabilities related to applications in any search results. One method that the application search system identifies application capabilities includes identifying function calls to device interfaces used by an application. The application search system may receive user-selected identification of a desired application capability from a search, from a user-selected entry or from a search term, among others. The application capability in a search may be used to score relevance of applications and increase relevance of applications matching the desired application capability.

  • Patent number: 10282466
    Abstract: A search server stores a plurality of keywords, each associated with an entity type. The server stores grammar rules, each specifying one or more entity types. The server receives a search query with search terms and generates tokens by splitting the search terms, each token associated with a token position that indicates a location of the token within the query. The server generates n-grams. Each n-gram is associated with a start token position and an end token position. The server determines entity types for n-grams that correspond to the keywords and generates a mapping that maps the received entity types and the start token positions of the n-grams that correspond with the received entity types to the end token positions of the n-grams that correspond with the received entity types. The server identifies grammar rules based on the mapping and transmits a result based on the identified grammar rules.

  • Patent number: 10229190
    Abstract: An application classifier classifies applications using latent semantic indexing (LSI) vectors of the applications. The application classifier uses a machine-learned model generated based on pairs of LSI vectors of positive and negative training sets of applications, where the positive training set includes applications within a desired category and the negative training set includes applications outside of the desired category. For a given application, the application classifier determines whether the application belongs to the desired category based on similarity of an LSI vector of the application and LSI vectors of positive and negative exemplar applications, as determined by the machine-learned model. If the LSI vector of the application is similar to an LSI vector of at least one positive exemplar application and not similar to an LSI vector of any of the negative exemplar applications, the application is determined to belong to the desired category.
