  • Patent number: 10883517
    Abstract: A compressor that includes a frame, a rotor assembly, and a heat sink assembly. The rotor assembly includes a bearing assembly to which the heat sink assembly is secured. The compressor is configured such that, during use, air is drawn through the interior of the frame. The heat sink assembly then extends radially from the bearing assembly into the air path through the frame such that the air flows over the heat sink assembly.

  • Patent number: 10692391
    Abstract: In various embodiments, subject matter for improving discussions in connection with an educational resource is identified and summarized by analyzing annotations made by students assigned to a discussion group to identify high-quality annotations likely to generate responses and stimulate discussion threads, identifying clusters of high-quality annotations relating to the same portion or related portions of the educational resource, extracting and summarizing text from the annotations, and combining, in an electronically represented document, the extracted and summarized text and (i) at least some of the annotations and the portion or portions of the educational resource or (ii) clickable links thereto.

  • Publication number: 20190377784
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention utilize a feature-extraction approach and/or a matching approach in combination with a nonparametric approach to estimate the proportion of documents in each of multiple labeled categories with high accuracy. The feature-extraction approach automatically generates continuously valued text features optimized for estimating the category proportions, and the matching approach constructs a matched set that closely resembles a data set that is unobserved based on an observed set, thereby improving the degree to which the distributions of the observed and unobserved sets resemble each other.

  • Publication number: 20190239557
    Abstract: A method of, and equipment for gathering fibres (12) entrained a gas stream, for example by melt blowing, comprises an enclosure (50) having an inlet (57), through which a gas stream carrying entrained fibres (12) may be directed into the enclosure (50), a fibre outlet (58) from which an assembly of gathered fibres (12) may be withdrawn from the enclosure (50) and an exhaust outlet (41) through which gas may pass out of the enclosure (50). The enclosure (50) is constructed to provide a pathway for the fibres (12) from the inlet (57) to the fibre outlet (58) in which surplus gas in the gas stream is separated from the entrained fibres (12) and directed to the exhaust outlet (41), thereby reducing turbulence in the fibres (12) in the enclosure (50) which may affect the quality of the finished assembly.
