  • Publication number: 20210052976
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to apparatus, systems, and methods to allow a user to create virtual and real-world game content to provide players with physically engaging virtual content that is anchored to real-world locations. A content creator is provided a set of “drag-n-drop” modular assets (e.g., encounter tiles, content tiles, creatures, chests, rooms, vehicles, etc.) that can be aggregated together to form a complete content set (e.g., a dungeon, level, puzzle, etc.) through which a player is able to engage the game via the real-world. Each individual modular asset may include a set of in-game challenge criteria that must be satisfied to complete an in-game challenge associated with the asset.

  • Patent number: 10925728
    Abstract: Methods of transcatheter delivery of a prosthetic heart valve. A distal region of a guide member assembly is advanced into a heart of a patient. The distal region is docked to native anatomy of the heart. A delivery device, including a collapsed prosthetic heart valve, is advanced over the docked guide member assembly. The collapsed prosthetic heart valve is located at an implantation site. The prosthetic heart valve is deployed from the delivery device, and then the delivery device is removed from the patient. At least a portion of the guide member assembly is removed from the patient. In some embodiments, the docking structure is docked to one or more of native mitral valve leaflets, chordae in the left ventricle, or walls of the left ventricle as part of a transseptal mitral valve delivery procedure.

  • Publication number: 20210048863
    Abstract: An information handling system includes a controller and first, second and third devices. The devices power-on during a power-on sequence of the information handling system. During the power-on sequence, the controller provides a first power brake signal to the first device via a first power brake line, a second power brake signal to the second device via a second power brake line, and a third power brake signal to the third device via a third power brake line. The controller removes the first power brake signal from the first power brake line. In response to an expiration of a first amount of time, the controller removes the second power brake signal from the second power brake line. In response to an expiration of a second amount of time, the controller removes the third power brake signal from the third power brake line.

  • Publication number: 20210051217
    Abstract: A first add-in card is connected to a second add-in card via a network communication link using a first network protocol. The first add-in card determines that a first network interface device is directly connected to a second network interface device via the network communication link, and directs that the first and second network interface devices communicate via a second network protocol based upon the first network interface device being directly connected to the second network interface device via the network communication link. The second network protocol transmits a higher proportion of data than the first network protocol.

  • Publication number: 20210019296
    Abstract: Methods for data de-duplication and data augmentation are performed by systems and devices. A request for information is received over a network from a requestor by a host, and is provided to an information source for a response. The host retrieves first data from a data source associated with the request, and receives the response that includes second data associated with the request. The first and second data are aggregated by the host. The aggregated data is processed by the host to remove duplicate information/records. The aggregated data is processed by the host to augment eligible data fields to correct, supplement, and calculate the aggregated data through data augmentation. An updated response is then provided back to the requestor with augmented data tracking. Neural network models are also utilized by the host for data augmentation.

  • Publication number: 20210008557
    Abstract: Droplet interfaces are formed between droplets in an electro-wetting device comprising an array of actuation electrodes. Actuation signals are applied to selected actuation electrodes to place the droplets into an energised state in which the shape of the droplets is modified compared to a shape of the droplets in a lower energy state and to bring the two droplets into proximity. The actuation signals are then changed to lower the energy of the droplets into the lower energy state so that the droplets relax into the gap and the two droplets contact each other thereby forming a droplet interface. The use of sensing electrodes in the device permit electrical current measurements across the droplet interface. The sensing electrodes can be used for either (i) applying a reference signal during droplet actuation or (ii) recording electrical current measurements.

  • Patent number: 10891610
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to methods, apparatuses, computer readable media and systems for providing, along with a token, a token assurance level and data used to generate the token assurance level. At the time a token is issued, one or more Identification and Verification (ID&V) methods may be performed to ensure that the token is replacing a PAN that was legitimately used by a token requestor. A token assurance level may be assigned to a given token in light of the type of ID&V that is performed and the entity performing the ID&V. Different ID&Vs may result in different token assurance levels. An issuer may wish to know the level of assurance and the data used in generating the level of assurance associated with a token prior to authorizing a payment transaction that uses the token.
