  • Publication number: 20190311150
    Abstract: Techniques for secure data synchronization are described. In one or more implementations, a determination is made as to whether enterprise data is stored locally on a first device corresponding to an enterprise device. Based on a determination that the second device is a non-enterprise device, a determination is made as to whether a permission associated with the first device indicates that the first device is permitted to propagate the enterprise data to non-enterprise devices. If the first device lacks permission to propagate the enterprise data to non-enterprise devices, the enterprise data is prevented from being propagated to the second device.

  • Publication number: 20190303458
    Abstract: A contemporary image is stored, is analyzed, and an associated data structure is generated. An image data structure may include image meta data, image classification data, image segment data, image caption data, or the like. The storage of the contemporary image is used as a triggering event and its data structure is used as an input to determine contextually relevant ancestral images. The contemporary image data structure is compared to respective data structures of ancestral images. A series of ancestral images are ranked based upon contextual similarly of their data structures to the contemporary image data structure. The most similar ancestral image is simultaneously displayed with the contemporary image. Interactions may be monitored, a prompt may be provided, a next ranked ancestral image may be displayed in place of the previous ancestral image, and/or a prompt to store a new contemporary image may be provided.

  • Publication number: 20190282810
    Abstract: The exemplified systems and methods facilitate a nerve conduction block at a target nerve using electrical stimulation applied from one or more electrodes located on a percutaneous lead that are placed in parallel, or substantially in parallel, and without direct contact, to a long axis of the peripheral nerve over an overlapping nerve region of greater than about 3 millimeters. The exemplified system and method can be further configured to block nerve condition without eliciting onset activity and co-excitation of non-targeted structures. The exemplified method and system can be performed using conventional percutaneous leads, though an improved percutaneous lead design is disclosed herein. In an aspect, an introducer is disclosed that facilitates accurate and consistent insertion of the percutaneous lead to the specified or intended position relative to the target nerve. In another aspect, a treatment kit comprising the various system components to treat pain is disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190272335
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for data retention handling are described. In some data storage systems, data objects are stored in a non-relational database schema. The system may support configurable data retention policies for different tenants, users, or applications. For example, a data store may receive retention requests, where the retention requests may specify deletion or exportation actions to perform on records contained within data objects. The data store may determine retention rules based on these retention requests, and may periodically or aperiodically evaluate the rules to determine active actions to perform. To improve the efficiency of the system, the data store may aggregate the active actions (e.g., according to the dataset to perform the actions on), and may generate work items corresponding to the aggregate actions. A work processor may retrieve these work items and may efficiently perform the data retention actions on datasets stored in the data object store.
