  • 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: 20210308724
    Abstract: A debris collection and metrology system for collecting and analyzing debris from a tip used in nanomachining processes, the system including an irradiation source, an irradiation detector, an actuator, and a controller. The irradiation source is operable to direct incident irradiation onto the tip, and the irradiation detector is operable to receive a sample irradiation from the tip, the sample irradiation being generated as a result of the direct incident irradiation being applied onto the tip. The controller is operatively coupled to an actuator system and the irradiation detector, and the controller is operable to receive a first signal based on a first response of the irradiation detector to the sample irradiation, and the controller is operable to effect relative motion between the tip and at least one of the irradiation source and the irradiation detector based on the first signal.

  • Publication number: 20210274003
    Abstract: Measures for providing timer services in a network including a cluster of nodes responsible for providing timer services to clients. At a given node in the cluster, a request to provide a timer is received from a client. Configuration of a primary replica of the requested timer on a first node in the cluster to pop after a first time has elapsed is initiated. A first timer replication message is transmitted to a second node in the cluster, the first timer replication message indicating that the second node should configure a first backup replica of the requested timer. A second timer replication message is transmitted to a third node in the cluster, the second timer replication message indicating that the third node should configure a second backup replica of the requested timer. Popping of the primary, first backup or second backup timer replicas includes initiating callback of a given client.

  • Patent number: 10686849
    Abstract: Measures for use in processing data in a telecommunications network. A request message is received in relation to establishment of a communication session involving a given subscriber. Subscriber configuration data is received in relation to the establishment. The subscriber configuration data includes a set of one or more trigger points at which one or more application services should be invoked in relation to communication sessions for the given subscriber. At least one trigger point from the set of trigger points is encoded into an identifier for the communication session within the request message. The request message including the identifier for the communication session in which the at least one trigger point has been encoded is transmitted.

  • Patent number: 10665008
    Abstract: Object sets are often organized and traversed in a hierarchical manner according to ownership, wherein a subset of contained objects are processed before or after a containing object that contains the contained objects. Such object sets may also be presented as a scene, which may involve traversing the object set in a drawing order, such as a descending distance order that renders objects in a back-to-front manner. It may be difficult to reconcile these distinct traversal techniques, particularly if different portions of the object set utilize a different traversal order. Presented herein are hybrid traversal techniques in which a selected subset of related objects is identified and traversed in a drawing order, and the remainder of the object set is traversed in an ownership order, in furtherance of various tasks that involve hybrid traversal orders and/or to facilitate the traversal of different types of object subsets within the object set.

  • Patent number: 10650541
    Abstract: Virtual environments may be presented to a user with an inclusion of one or more applications, but many such techniques for integrating the applications with the virtual environment may exhibit disadvantages. For example, a two-dimensional “flat” rendering of the application may require a loss of visual depth, and/or may appear inconsistent; an immersive presentation that is mutually exclusive with the presentation of the virtual environment may achieve very limited integration; and a holographic presentation may appear incongruous. Such techniques may also increase presentation latency, with noticeable and significant consequences. Instead, the virtual environment may define an application region, and may notify the application of the application region and a perspective of the user within the virtual environment.

  • Patent number: 10581768
    Abstract: A messaging system configured to receive a message from a first mobile messaging client device, transmit to a second mobile messaging client device a notification of the presence of the message, receive a message attribute comprising an instruction to limit a functionality of the message, apply the message attribute to the message base on a message characteristic and update any existing corresponding message attribute, and transmit the message and the message attribute to the second mobile messaging client device where the message and the message attribute are stored in non-volatile memory at least until the second mobile messaging client device manages the message in accordance with the message attribute, wherein managing the message comprises limiting functionality of the message based on the message attribute, wherein the message attribute comprises a predetermined message viewing time after which the message content cannot be accessed at the second mobile messaging client device.
