  • Publication number: 20190062813
    Abstract: Systems and methods disclosed herein relate to smart toilets (e.g. toilets with integrated stool analysis technology, urinalysis technology, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing technology, and/or logic circuitry which collectively enable the convenient, accessible, and real-time automation of waste analysis and microbiome screening). The smart toilet system can automatically perform various medical analyses on a user's biological waste, including DNA sequencing analyses, fecal occult blood tests, fecal pH tests, fecal fat tests, physical examinations of stool, particulate analyses of stool, physical analyses of urine, chemical analyses of urine, microscopic analyses of urine, particulate analyses of urine, and so on. The smart toilet system can then process and analyze the results in order to make appropriate diagnoses and/or to recommend various courses of action to the user so as to promote/preserve health.

  • Publication number: 20180260908
    Abstract: Real-time insurance rates can be generated and presented to a driver—as the rate changes, the change can be shown through an interface. Different factors can be evaluated and based upon a result of the evaluation, the rate can be determined. The determination can be performed locally at a vehicle as well as by an insurance company. A bidding process can be used where different insurance companies supply rates and a user or automated process selects the rate for use—the selected rate is conveyed upon the interface.

  • Publication number: 20150339780
    Abstract: Vertical insurance market specialization is provided where policies can be created based on granular information related to actual usage of an object. The information can be received in real time or near real time, and specific market definitions can be created based on the information. Insurance companies can bid on specific market definitions, and an owner of the object can select coverage. In cases of automobile insurance, route information or other sensed parameters (such as driving behavior) can be provided to define an insurance market for a specific driver. Allowing companies to bid on the specific instances allows for increased competition and lower cost than current blanket solutions.

  • Publication number: 20140100892
    Abstract: Dynamic insurance rate adjustments are communicated to a vehicle operator in order to allow the vehicle operator to adjust various parameters before an actual change to an insurance rate is communicated to a service provider or trusted third party. The various parameters can be external parameters and/or internal parameters and further can include historical information, current information, and/or predicted information. Communicating the insurance rate adjustments provides for insurance visibility for both the operator and passengers of the vehicle. The insurance rate adjustment is communicated though a device located within a vehicle to enable perception by a vehicle occupant.

  • Publication number: 20130297418
    Abstract: System(s) and method(s) to incentivize adoption of time-dependent customized insurance benefit(s) are provided. A provider of insurance benefit(s) incentivizes adoption of the insurance benefit(s) in exchange for knowledge of operation characteristics of an insured entity. Knowledge is cumulative and collected from the insured entity and environment in which the entity operates. Incentivation is accomplished at least in part through generation of incentive offer(s) based on available knowledge, which is associated with an operator of the insured entity rather than with the entity itself. The operator can regulate the scope of exchanged knowledge, and received incentive offer(s) and related content. Incentive offer(s) can be directed to provision of insurance benefit coverage that is adequate to current or nearly current operation condition(s); discounted real-time or nearly real-time insurance benefits; or subsidized service(s).

  • Patent number: 8521190
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for storing user generated information, e.g., reviews, comments, suggestions relevant to a particular geographic region, using local access nodes and/or facilitating discovery of the availability of the locally stored and locally relevant content through the use of peer-to-peer signals are described. In various embodiments, the locally stored and available content can be discovered when passing within range a local access point, storing the locally relevant user provided content. User generated information, in some embodiments, can be stored subject to user specified sharing restrictions. In various embodiments, users can limit the information they are provided by controlling profile setting and/or a setting used to control what information is provided as they move through a region. In some embodiments, user provided information distribution and/or access can be, and sometimes is, restricted based on group membership, user identity and/or interests.

  • Publication number: 20120277700
    Abstract: The claimed subject matter relates to an ostomy seal applicator guide that facilitates application of the ostomy seal. The applicator can receive an absorbent material that can be employed during the seal application process to absorb moisture (e.g., waste matter seeping from the ostomy/stoma) from an ostomy, and facilitate maintaining clean, dry skin surrounding the ostomy so that the seal can be adhered to the patient's skin surrounding the ostomy area as well as properly align the seal to the ostomy area.
