  • Patent number: 11388283
    Abstract: Various embodiments concern obtaining communication data and generating activity logs. More specifically, communication data such as contact information and call time associated with communications are obtained. The obtained data is then used to generate a report including the time, duration, and project or client associated with communication. Thus, an activity log is automatically generated using the communication data.

  • Patent number: 11379504
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for indexing and mining content of multiple data sources. The method includes: providing a database of learned content of multiple data sources learned using text analysis, the learned content identifying one or more concepts to which a data source relates, wherein the concepts are cognitively associated with the data source and include concepts not explicitly referenced in the data source and providing an index of the learned content including associations between concepts with mappings between concepts and the multiple data sources. The method further includes receiving input of a query and using text analysis to analyze the query to determine one or more query concepts to which it relates and mining the indexed concepts in response to the query concepts to return a list of referenced data sources.

  • Patent number: 11351399
    Abstract: A method and system for combination therapy utilizing local drug delivery and radiotherapy at a target site of body tissue are provided. The delivery system comprises a source electrode adapted to be positioned proximate to a target site of internal body tissue. A counter electrode is in electrical communication with the source electrode, and is configured to cooperate with the source electrode to form a localized electric field proximate to the target site. A cargo may be delivered to the target site when exposed to the localized electric field. Radiotherapy is applied to the target site in combination with the local drug delivery.

  • Publication number: 20220142566
    Abstract: Articles, systems, and methods for rapid administration and active pharmaceutical compositions to subjects exposed to radiation and/or toxins are provided by this disclosure. There are currently few interventional technologies to protect against long-term morbidity and mortality from exposure to radiation and chemical warfare. Furthermore, as commercially available technologies such as additive manufacturing and small-scale chemical reactors have become more prevalent, the risk of misuse of such technologies by terrorists and rogue nation states to manufacture nuclear, radiologic, and chemical weapons continues to increase. Articles, systems, and methods described herein combine sensing technologies with drug release components, in order to provide an approach for rapid diagnosis of and response to exposure to radiation and toxic agents.

  • Patent number: 11279279
    Abstract: An evaluation engine has two or more modules to assist a driver of a vehicle. A driver drowsiness module analyzes monitored features of the driver to recognize two or more levels of drowsiness of the driver of the vehicle. The driver drowsiness module evaluates drowsiness of the driver based on observed body language and facial analysis of the driver. The driver drowsiness module is configured to analyze live multi-modal sensor inputs from sensors against at least one of i) a trained artificial intelligence model and ii) a rules based model while the driver is driving the vehicle to produce an output comprising a driver drowsiness-level estimation. A driver assistance module provides one or more positive assistance mechanisms to the driver to return the driver to be at or above the designated level of drowsiness.

  • Publication number: 20210186723
    Abstract: An example medical device is disclosed. An example medical device includes an expandable stent. The stent includes a tubular scaffold formed of one or more interwoven filament. The tubular scaffold includes an inner surface and a flexible valve extending radially inward from the inner surface of the scaffold. Further, the valve is configured to shift between a closed configuration and an open configuration and the one or more filaments of the scaffold bias the valve to the closed configuration while in a nominally deployed state.

  • Publication number: 20210158303
    Abstract: Various embodiments concern obtaining mobile device data and generating activity logs. More specifically, mobile device data such as data indicating the location and time of a mobile device is obtained. The time and location may be automatically obtained and recorded using location service APIs on the mobile device. The obtained data is then used to generate a report including the time, duration, and location of activities associated with the user of the mobile device. Thus, an activity log is automatically generated using the time and location data.

  • Publication number: 20210141836
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a computational scheme wherein derived calculations of records contained in a disk drive are replicated in-memory and performed in the memory. database records that are generally stored in the hard drive and are temporarily replicated exactly in-memory which takes advantage of a significantly faster read/write time than the disk drive to compute derived resolutions to ad hoc queries. Ad hoc queries include a number of parameters which enable an arbitrarily large number of permutations of query type.

  • Publication number: 20200226171
    Abstract: Introduced here are systems to automatically characterize media data into a record of a database. A database server may receive a first media data. The database server can identify meta data characteristics from metadata included within the first media data and media data characteristics indicating features of the first media data. The first metadata characteristics may be inspected to determine whether they match a first classification identified with a metadata confidence level that exceeds a threshold metadata confidence level. The first media data characteristics may be inspected to determine whether they match a second classification with a media data confidence level that exceeds a threshold media data confidence level. The first media data may be associated with a first record based on at least one of the first metadata characteristics matching the first classification and the first media data characteristics matching the second classification.
