  • Publication number: 20200334349
    Abstract: A system and method for a digital pass with user verification is disclosed. The method receives a request for the digital pass to be generated for a user. The request includes identification (ID) information that is added to a database. An image is defined for the digital pass, the image incorporates at least a portion of the ID information therein and is editable only by the digital pass management system. The method then generates the digital pass which includes the image and a non-image portion that is editable by the user. The digital pass is transmitted to the user's mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20200173276
    Abstract: A fluid sampling probe may include one or more features that increase the likelihood that a seal will be maintained during a sampling operation, even for sampling operations in unconsolidated formations. This may reduce contamination in formation fluid samples that are obtained during sampling operations. The fluid sampling probe may include a reinforcement ring configured to extend into a geological formation beyond an elastomer portion of the fluid sampling probe, which may support the geological formation and prevent a failure of the formation during sampling operations. The fluid sampling probe may also include a stop sleeve to prevent overextension that could otherwise cause the geological formation to collapse. In addition, the fluid sampling probe may include a relatively wider sealing elastomer that may decrease in height monotonically radially from the center of the fluid sampling probe.

  • Publication number: 20200123564
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for conferring pesticidal activity to bacteria, plants, plant cells, tissues and seeds are provided. Compositions comprising a coding sequence for a toxin polypeptide are provided. The coding sequences can be used in DNA constructs or expression cassettes for transformation and expression in plants and bacteria. Compositions also comprise transformed bacteria, plants, plant cells, tissues, and seeds. In particular, isolated toxin nucleic acid molecules are provided. Additionally, amino acid sequences corresponding to the polynucleotides are encompassed, and antibodies specifically binding to those amino acid sequences. In particular, the present invention provides for isolated nucleic acid molecules comprising nucleotide sequences encoding the amino acid sequence shown in any of SEQ ID NO:1-40, 42, 43, 45-48, 50, 51, 52, 54, 56, 58-64, 66, or 67, or the nucleotide sequence set forth in any of SEQ ID NO:69-106, as well as variants and fragments thereof.

  • Publication number: 20200106959
    Abstract: A light field panorama system in which a user holding a mobile device performs a gesture to capture images of a scene from different positions. Additional information, for example position and orientation information, may also be captured. The images and information may be processed to determine metadata including the relative positions of the images and depth information for the images. The images and metadata may be stored as a light field panorama. The light field panorama may be processed by a rendering engine to render different 3D views of the scene to allow a viewer to explore the scene from different positions and angles with six degrees of freedom. Using a rendering and viewing system such as a mobile device or head-mounted display, the viewer may see behind or over objects in the scene, zoom in or out on the scene, or view different parts of the scene.

  • Patent number: 10499105
    Abstract: A media effects engine on a computer device applies one or more effects to an input media stream. A performance monitor monitors a performance metric associated with playing the input media stream and reduces a quality parameter associated with the effect upon detecting a drop in the performance metric below a target metric. The quality parameter manages a tradeoff between a quality of effect and an amount of hardware resources consumed to produce the effect. Thus, the effect can be adjusted to meet the capabilities of the computer device.

  • Publication number: 20190238610
    Abstract: A video effects application executes on a client device having an image capture device and receives video data captured by the image capture device. The video effects application extracts information from the captured video data and stores the extracted information as metadata associated with the captured video data. For example, the video effects application identifies objects in the captured video data or identifies optical flow of the captured video data and stores the identified objects or identified optical flow as metadata associated with the captured video data. The video effects application stores information describing modifications to the captured video data in association with the captured video data. When the captured video data is presented, the captured video data, associated metadata, and information describing the modifications is communicated to a renderer, which uses the metadata to perform the identified modifications to the captured video data when presenting the captured video data.
