  • Patent number: 10783753
    Abstract: An electronic gaming table executes player-versus-player playing card games. The gaming table has a display screen where at least one random virtual playing card is virtually delivered to individual player positions for each of the multiple players. The electronic gaming table includes the display screen, a processor associated with memory, player input controls and a playing card masking element at each player position. The playing card masking system at each player position is positioned over an individual position that is a portion of the display screen where the processor directs delivery of the at least one random virtual playing card virtual face down. The playing card masking system includes a three-dimensional element having a visible light transmissive line of sight between the individual position and a player at the individual player position, while excluding visible light transmission to player positions across from or adjacent to the individual player position.

  • Patent number: 10764184
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the system identifies geographic areas covered by a communication network. The system determines, for each identified geographic area, a network performance metric for the identified geographic area based on a difference between: (1) a first average network speed of the communication network in the identified geographic area during prior time periods in which the communication network is busy, and (2) a second average network speed of the communication network in the identified geographic area during second prior time periods in which the communication network is not busy. The system compares the respective performance metrics of the geographic areas to a threshold network performance metric, which is determined by a congestion-analysis machine learning (ML) model. The system identifies traffic congestions in one or more of the identified geographic areas having a determined network performance metric below the threshold network performance metric.

  • Publication number: 20200272348
    Abstract: A machine and method of reducing duplicate transmission data employs one more more digests to track field/value pairs that have previously been distributed. Each digest contains a record table and a segment table. The record table includes anonymous identifier records, each of which contain an anonymous identifier and one or more indexes into the segment table. The segment table comprises an array of every existing data field/value pair. Before distribution of update data, each record is matched to an anonymous identifier record in the record table. The segment values in the prospective distribution record are compared to the digest's anonymous identifier record, used to determine which data has already been distributed, and thus will be suppressed in the distribution.

  • Publication number: 20200069435
    Abstract: An interbody implant comprises one or more elongate members that have superior and inferior surfaces with a height, and medial and lateral surfaces having a width. The height is set so the implant fits into the intervertebral space. The width is less than the height. The interbody implant has a first configuration, a second configuration, and a third configuration. The interbody implant is inserted into the intervertebral space in the first configuration such that medial and lateral surfaces contact the vertebral bodies, and the interbody implant is then actuated into the second configuration such that superior and inferior surfaces engage the vertebral bodies. Actuation of the implant from the first configuration to the second configuration distracts the vertebral bodies. The implant is actuated into the third configuration where the width of the implant is greater than width of the implant in the first or the second configuration.

  • Patent number: 10407332
    Abstract: A wastewater treatment system includes a biological reactor having anaerobic, anoxic, and aerobic chambers. A lift station including a pump is operatively connected to a tertiary filter downstream of the biological reactor. The lift station receives biologically treated liquid from the tertiary filter and pumps the liquid from the lift station. A filtration subsystem is operatively connected to the lift station. The filtration subsystem receives and filters the liquid pumped by the lift station. The filtration subsystem includes a preliminary filter and a salt-rejecting membrane filter having a recycle conduit operatively connected to recirculate salt-rejecting membrane filter, thereby forming a salt concentration loop between biological reactor and the salt-rejecting membrane filter. A post-filtration subsystem is operatively connected to receive salt-rejecting membrane filter permeate, and includes an adsorbent and oxidation system.

  • Patent number: 10377520
    Abstract: A system and method for protecting biological or other material from contamination through the steps of filling, freeze-drying, packaging, storing and use are disclosed. A system can include a flexible container, a membrane configured to transmit air or solvent vapor out of the flexible container, and a membrane frame supporting the membrane and engaged with at least one column member. The at least one column member can be configured to maintain the membrane and the membrane frame a spaced distance from one or more contents received within the flexible container. Upon application of a downward force, the at least one column member can assume a collapsed configuration. A method can include inserting a biological material, for example, into a flexible container, freeze-drying the biological material, moving the freeze-dried biological material to a portion of the flexible container that includes at least one port, and sealing the biological material within the portion.
