  • Publication number: 20240050209
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods of the present disclosure are generally directed to facilitating user control of high-pressure flow of liquid for oral irrigation carried out as part of personal dental care. Such control over high-pressure flow may reduce the likelihood of errant spray of liquid outside of the user's mouth (e.g., onto mirrors, countertop surfaces, or the user's clothes). Such improved control over errant spraying may reduce the potential for frustration and, thus, may promote maintaining oral irrigation as part of a personal dental care routine. Further, or instead, through facilitating user control of high-pressure flow of liquid, the devices, systems, and methods of the present disclosure may improve the effectiveness and efficiency of self-administered oral irrigation in promoting a user's oral hygiene.

  • Patent number: 11789747
    Abstract: To provide a hierarchical visual paradigm while maintaining the communication advantages of sibling extensions, a visual hierarchy simulation extension generates and maintains placeholders in a visually hierarchical manner, with the visual positioning of such placeholders informing the visual positioning of overlays of frames hosting the visual output of sibling extensions. Such a visual hierarchy simulation extension is utilized to layout and establish a desired visual hierarchy. One or more modules of computer-executable instructions are invoked to provide the relevant functionality, including the obtaining of the visual positioning of placeholders, the relevant visual translation between the visual positioning of placeholders and the visual overlaying of corresponding frames, the generation and movement of the corresponding frames, and the instantiation of extension content within the corresponding frames. The visual hierarchy simulation extension is hosted independently from the one or more modules.

  • Patent number: 11663405
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enhanced classification of sequences of objects based on clique similarity and metadata associated with the sequences are presented. Sequences are received. Events are detected based on analyzing k-skip-n-grams included in the sequences. For each event of the detected plurality of events, a graph is generated. The graph for a particular event includes z-cliques that correspond to portions of the k-skip-n-grams that are included in the sequences that are associated with the particular event. A first sequence, which is separate from the other sequences, is received. The first sequence includes a first plurality of k-skip-n-grams. A trained classifier is employed to classify the first sequence as being associated with a first event of the detected events. Classifying the first sequence is based on a comparison between the first plurality of k-skip-n-grams and the z-cliques of the graph that is generated for the first event.
