  • Publication number: 20210365286
    Abstract: A system for creating surrogate models is provided. The system includes a user computing device including a user interface, a database, and a processor. The processor is configured to receive, from the user computing device, a workflow request, determine at least one application in the database required to complete the workflow request, retrieve, from the database, the at least one application and meta-data associated with the at least one application, and determine that a user has proper tenancies to use the at least one application. The processor is further configured to execute, using the at least one application on an external computing device, a workflow associated with the workflow request based at least in part on the meta-data, generate, based on execution of the workflow request, new meta-data associated with the at least one application, and transmit the new meta-data to the database.

  • Publication number: 20210363431
    Abstract: A process for producing crude biodiesel from renewable feedstocks (such as fats, oils, and greases) containing unsaponifiable materials; purifying the crude biodiesel through a purification process; recovering a purified biodiesel distillate stream and a less volatile biodiesel residue stream; and further recovering valuable chemicals from the biodiesel residue. Specifically, the present technology relates to the concentration of valuable chemicals in the biodiesel residue product of biodiesel production and the subsequent recovery of these valuable chemicals. The process may further include the conversion of the biodiesel residue into diesel range hydrocarbons using hydrodeoxygenation and the subsequent purification of the hydrocarbon fraction produced thereby.

  • Publication number: 20210362758
    Abstract: Techniques for injecting a vehicle into a high speed transportation system are described. A travel request is received from a user. The user is determined to be authorized to travel using the high speed transportation system, based on a profile associated with the user. An injection portal for the user to enter the transportation system is identified. One or more instructions for the user are provided, relating to the injection portal. A vehicle associated with the user is identified at the injection portal. Characteristics of the vehicle are sensed at the injection portal, including a center of gravity of the vehicle. The characteristics are determined to satisfy threshold values, and the vehicle is authorized for travel in the transportation system. A vehicle profile is generated. The vehicle profile is transmitted to a second controller associated with the transportation system. The vehicle is injected into the transportation system.

  • Patent number: 11180285
    Abstract: Plastic grid or framework arrangements are used to support and position of bowls that hold flower arrangements, candles, letters, and other decorative elements. These grids are deployable in water fountains, indoor and outdoor pools, and other small bodies of water during festive occasions or for longer term decorative display. The grid themselves do not float, and are positioned below the surface of the water, and thus are not readily visible. Buoyancy is provided at the hubs that form nodes in the grids. The hubs also support floating bowls containing various decorative elements. The resulting effect is that the various decorative elements appear to be floating on the surface while the sub-surface grid structure maintains their relative positioning, keeping the bowls from clumping together at the edges or in the corners of the pool or fountain.

  • Publication number: 20210328947
    Abstract: One embodiment comprises a non-transitory computer readable medium comprising computer-executable instructions executable to access a conversation-enabled document and expose the conversation-enabled document on a conversation channel as a conversation into the conversation-enabled document. The conversation-enabled document can comprise a conversation component for controlling a conversation interface into the conversation-enabled document, the conversation component specifying conversation steps, routing between conversation steps and a document variable to accept a conversation participant response. The computer-executable instructions can be executable to set a document variable value in the conversation-enabled document based on the participant response received via the conversation interface; and render the conversation-enabled document to a response channel using the document variable and the page template.

  • Publication number: 20210320998
    Abstract: A data subscription system provides emergency event data to receiving systems. The data subscription system includes an event emitter and a distribution module. The event emitter receives event data describing an event in a computer-aided dispatch (CAD) system; the event is related to an emergency call. The event emitter identifies a subscription subscribed to the event based on a tenant identifier identifying a CAD tenant associated with the event, and adds a data message with the event data to a queue for the identified subscription. The distribution module retrieves the data message from the queue, transforms the data message based on one or more filtering or formatting rules, and transmits the transformed data message to a receiving system associated with the subscription.
