  • Publication number: 20210176043
    Abstract: The present invention provides a Multipath blockchain capability to verify blockchain data integrity based on transactions linked to entities that may be device-based or otherwise. Based on an entity's needs, in one embodiment, the Multipath blockchain capability enables the entity reading a block linked to the entity to directly point to only that entity's transactions. The entity's pointer to each path type may be associated with each data record. In an embodiment, each entity's transaction is a separate unit; not bundled with other entity's transactions. Each of these transactions or blocks may be linked to that entity's previous block.

  • Patent number: 11030208
    Abstract: Generating and providing a content feed to a user that surfaces information items that are determined to be interesting or relevant to the user including content that is determined to be “distant” to the user is provided. Explicit user actions are used to discover peers who are not colleagues of the user (e.g., peers with whom the user does not share a close organizational relationship, peers with whom the user does not regularly communicate, etc.), but who the user indicates an interest in via his/her actions. These peers are categorized as elevated peers of the user, and information items associated with and trending around the elevated peers are surfaced to the user in a content feed.

  • Patent number: 11030773
    Abstract: An electronic device estimates a pose of a hand by volumetrically deforming a signed distance field using a skinned tetrahedral mesh to locate a local minimum of an energy function, wherein the local minimum corresponds to the hand pose. The electronic device identifies a pose of the hand by fitting an implicit surface model of a hand to the pixels of a depth image that correspond to the hand. The electronic device uses a skinned tetrahedral mesh to warp space from a base pose to a deformed pose to define an articulated signed distance field from which the hand tracking module derives candidate poses of the hand. The electronic device then minimizes an energy function based on the distance of each corresponding pixel to identify the candidate pose that most closely approximates the pose of the hand.

  • Patent number: 10987246
    Abstract: An ophthalmic surgical device includes a housing having a distal end and a proximal end. A cannula is attached to the housing distal end and has a distal tip with at least one port in communication with a lumen extending through the cannula and in communication with an aspiration path in the housing. A vibration source is held within the housing for vibrating the distal tip of the cannula for assisting in vitreous and other tissue removal from a patient's eye. The vibration source creates a peak velocity of the distal tip equal to or less than a potential maximum flow velocity of water through the at least one port for a pressure differential between an intraocular pressure of the eye and a pressure within the cannula lumen that is less than the intraocular pressure.

  • Patent number: 10955373
    Abstract: A technique for monitoring the quality of objects is disclosed. A container includes a multiple sensors and is configured to receive an object. The sensors monitor various metrics associated with the quality of the object, and a display is affixed to the container for displaying a visual indication of the quality of the object. The visual indication is based on data collected from the sensors. A quality monitoring module is executed by a processor to control the sensors to switch operation between a first mode of operation and a second mode of operation based on a detected change in one of the metrics monitored by the sensors.

  • Publication number: 20210081258
    Abstract: Exploiting FPGAs for acceleration may be performed by transforming concurrent programs. One example method of operation may provide creating synchronous hardware accelerators from concurrent asynchronous programs at software level, by obtaining input as software instructions describing concurrent behavior via a model of communicating sequential processes (CSP) of message exchange between concurrent processes performed via channels, mapping, on a computing device, each of the concurrent processes to synchronous dataflow primitives, comprising at least one of join, fork, merge, steer, variable, and arbiter, producing a clocked digital logic description for upload to one or more field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices, performing primitive remapping of the output design for throughput, clock rate and resource usage via retiming, and creating an annotated graph of the input software description for debugging of concurrent code for the field FPGA devices.

  • Publication number: 20210067544
    Abstract: An embodiment of a feedback-based system and methods are disclosed for real-time mitigation of fraud and otherwise invalid traffic in a mobile ad environment. The system of three complementary facets of one embodiment comprises four major sub-systems: prevention, detection, control and reporting, which work in cohesion with one another to achieve the common goal of the system. In the embodiment, deterministic and probabilistic methods are applied across all levels of user engagement (impressions, clicks, installs, post-install events, and conversions) to detect the likely sources of invalid traffic and block them in real time. A distinctive and unifying feature of the embodiment of the system is the feedback loop that connects advanced analytics and machine learning techniques that the detection subsystem employs at all levels of user engagement to the real-time blocking mechanism of the prevention subsystem that operates at the initial levels of user engagements, such as clicks and impressions.
