  • Publication number: 20230021270
    Abstract: A method for execution by a computer generating a virtual reality environment utilizing a group of object representations by identifying an exclusion asset and modifying a set of common illustrative assets to exclude the exclusion asset to produce a redacted set of common illustrative assets. The method further includes rendering a portion of the redacted set of common illustrative asset to produce a redacted set of common illustrative asset video frames and selecting a subset of the redacted set of common illustrative asset video frames to produce a common portion of video frames for the virtual reality environment. The method further includes rendering representations of object representations to produce remaining portions of the video frames for the virtual reality environment. The method further includes linking the common portion and the remaining portions of the video frames to produce the virtual reality environment for interactive consumption.

  • Publication number: 20230013632
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that provide smart alerts to users, e.g., alerts to users about diabetic states that are only provided when it makes sense to do so, e.g., when the system can predict or estimate that the user is not already cognitively aware of their current condition, e.g., particularly where the current condition is a diabetic state warranting attention. In this way, the alert or alarm is personalized and made particularly effective for that user. Such systems and methods still alert the user when action is necessary, e.g., a bolus or temporary basal rate change, or provide a response to a missed bolus or a need for correction, but do not alert when action is unnecessary, e.g., if the user is already estimated or predicted to be cognitively aware of the diabetic state warranting attention, or if corrective action was already taken.

  • Publication number: 20230005040
    Abstract: A method performed by a computing device includes determining a set of identigens for each word of words of a product-service query to produce sets of identigens. The method further includes interpreting, using identigen pairing rules of a knowledge database, the sets of identigens to determine a most likely meaning interpretation of the product-service query and produce a query entigen group that includes query entigens. The method further includes identifying one or more characteristic entigen categories for a subjective category entigen of the query entigen group. The method further includes recovering a set of response entigens for the product-service query from the knowledge database utilizing the query entigen group and based on the one or more characteristic entigen categories. The set of response entigens provides an answer for the product-service query.

  • Patent number: 11500718
    Abstract: A RAID storage controller storage-device-assisted data update system includes a RAID storage controller device coupled to a host system and RAID storage devices in a “look aside” RAID storage controller device configuration. Based on command(s) from the RAID storage controller device, a first RAID primary data storage device may perform a first DMA operation to access first primary data stored on the host system, and write the first primary data to its first buffer subsystem. The first RAID primary data storage device may then perform a first XOR operation using the first primary data stored in its first buffer subsystem and second primary data stored in its first storage subsystem in order to produce first interim parity data, and write the first interim parity data to its second buffer subsystem. The first RAID primary data storage device may then update the second primary data with the first primary data.

  • Publication number: 20220350102
    Abstract: Aspects and techniques of the present disclosure relate to a cable sealing structure comprising a cable sealing body including a gel and methods of making anisotropic behavior in cable sealing structures made with a dry silicone gel. In one aspect, various three-dimensional printing techniques are used to make a cable sealing structure that includes a gel. The cable sealing body has a construction that elastically deforms to apply an elastic spring load to the gel. The cable sealing body has a construction with anisotropic deformation characteristics that allows the cable sealing body to be less deformable in one direction than in others. The cable sealing structure can be utilized to seal fiber optic cables more uniformly while limiting the potential of leakage.
