  • Publication number: 20200280554
    Abstract: In order to leverage an enterprise-hosted network (EHN) associated with an entity, a communication technique may dynamically customize an application on a portable electronic device. In particular, the portable electronic device may discover and then may connect to the EHN using a quarantine zone that restricts access to the EHN. After providing valid credentials to establish a level of trust with the EHN, the portable electronic device may receive a request for authentication and authorization information. In response to the request, the portable electronic device may provide a credential to the EHN. Next, the portable electronic device may receive provisioning information that customizes the application on the portable electronic device to a venue associated with the entity. The provisioning information may include a connection setting associated with the application on the portable electronic device, which allows the portable electronic device to connect to the EHN outside of the quarantine zone.

  • Patent number: 10749665
    Abstract: In aspects of high-precision rational number arithmetic in homomorphic encryption, a computing device stores homomorphic encrypted data as a dataset, and implements an encryption application that can encode integers into plaintext polynomials, where the integers are representative of initial data received for encryption. The encryption application can encrypt the plaintext polynomials into ciphertexts of the homomorphic encrypted data, and perform homomorphic operations as rational number arithmetic on the ciphertexts, generating updated ciphertexts while the homomorphic encrypted data remains encrypted. The encryption application can then decrypt the updated ciphertexts to modified plaintext polynomials that can be resolved back to the plaintext polynomials effective to recover the integers that represent the initial data. The encryption application can also decode the modified plaintext polynomials back to the integers effective to recover the initial data in an unencrypted form.

  • Publication number: 20200188809
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a method for recovering at least one product from a fermentation broth. The invention relates to the use of a vacuum distillation vessel to recover products, such as ethanol, from a fermentation broth, where the fermentation broth comprises viable microbial biomass, and where the recovery of the product is completed in such a manner to ensure the viability of the microbial biomass. The invention provides for product recovery at an effective rate so as to prevent the accumulation of product in the fermentation broth. To ensure the viability of the microbial biomass, the invention is designed to reduce the amount of stress on the microbial biomass. By ensuring the viability of the microbial biomass, the microbial biomass may be recycled and reused in the fermentation process, which may result in an increased efficiency of the fermentation process.

  • Patent number: 10656829
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes: receiving, at a user device, user input corresponding to handwritten text to be recognized using a recognition engine; and receiving, at the user device, a representation of the handwritten text. The representation includes the handwritten text parsed into individual handwritten characters. The method further includes: displaying, on a display of the user device, the handwritten characters using a first indicator; receiving, at the user device, an identification of a text character recognized as one of the handwritten characters; displaying, on the display, the text character; and adjusting, at the user device, the one of the handwritten characters from being displayed using the first indicator to using a second indicator in response to the received identification. The first and second indicators are different.

  • Publication number: 20200110587
    Abstract: During source code compilation to a first processor instruction set architecture (ISA), a compiler encounters a memory ordering constraint specified in the source code. The compiler generates binary emulation metadata that is usable during emulation of emitted machine code instructions of the first ISA, in order to enforce the memory ordering constraint within corresponding machine code instructions of a second ISA. An emulator utilizes this binary emulation metadata during emulation of a resulting executable image at a processor implementing the second ISA. When the emulator encounters a machine code instruction in the image that performs a memory operation, it identifies an instruction memory address corresponding to the instruction. The emulator determines whether the binary emulation metadata identifies the instruction memory address as being associated with a memory ordering constraint.

  • Patent number: 10541805
    Abstract: In aspects of variable relinearization in homomorphic encryption, a computing device stores homomorphic encrypted data as a dataset, and implements an encryption application that can perform a multiplication operation on a ciphertext in the homomorphic encrypted data, where the multiplication operation contributes to increase a noise component in the ciphertext. The encryption application can determine a relinearization amount by which to relinearize the ciphertext after the multiplication operation, where the determination is effective to optimize a noise increase in the ciphertext based at least in part on projected subsequent multiplication operations on the ciphertext. The encryption application can then relinearize the ciphertext utilizing the determined relinearization amount that optimizes the noise increase in the ciphertext for optimal relinearization performance.

  • Publication number: 20190392054
    Abstract: Systems and methods of pre-fetching map data are disclosed herein. In some example embodiments, a computer system determines that a network connectivity metric of a geographic area satisfies a predetermined criteria, with the network connectivity metric comprising a metric of ability of a computing device to communicate with a remote server via a network connection while the computing device is within the geographic area. The computer system causes a map data item corresponding to the geographic area to be downloaded from the remote server onto the computing device during a time at which the computing device is not located within the geographic area based on the determination that the network connectivity metric of the geographic area satisfies the predetermined criteria. The map data item is configured to be used by the computing device to display a visual representation of the geographic area on the computing device.

  • Publication number: 20190166550
    Abstract: During a communication technique, an access point provides a message that includes one or more public land mobile network identifiers of one or more cellular-telephone networks that are supported by the access point. Then, an electronic device, which received the message, provides a candidate list specifying one or more access points that support communication with a cellular telephone network to a radio node that is associated with this cellular-telephone network. By communicating with a wireless-local-area-network (WLAN) controller, the radio node validates the one or more access points, and selects a target access point based on performance feedback from the WLAN controller. Next, the radio node instructs the electronic device to associate with the target access point. Moreover, the radio node and the target access point establish a secure-communication pathway, which allows the radio node to communicate data to the electronic device via the access point using an LTE Wi-Fi aggregation protocol.
