  • Publication number: 20220157189
    Abstract: A learning system includes a non-transitory memory, and one or more hardware processors configured or programmed to read instructions from the non-transitory memory to cause the learning system to perform operations including generating a user knowledge mesh including generating topic nodes each corresponding to a topic included in the user knowledge mesh, and generating concept nodes each corresponding to a key learnable concept, wherein each of the topic nodes is connected to another one of the topic nodes, each of the concept nodes is connected to one of the topic nodes, and each of the key learnable concepts includes one or more interactions related to the key learnable concept.

  • Patent number: 8961179
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for mineralising demineralised and hypo-mineralised biological material such as tooth or bone. The apparatus has a probe electrode for receiving a mineralisation agent and a counter electrode. It is also provided with a controller to control the electrical signal provided to the probe such that the extent of mineralisation of the biological material is controlled by modulating or changing the electrical signal provided by the probe based upon the measured output of the circuit formed from the probe, counter electrode and biological material. The electrical output provides a measure of the extent of mineralisation of the biological material which is compared with data from a reference technique which gives 3D structural information on an area of interest in the biological material.
