  • Patent number: 11226807
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods, systems, and processes to perform self-dependent upgrades of Java Runtime Environments (JREs). A request to update a plugin to a new version with a new configuration that includes a location to download a new upgrader-executable is received from a platform computing device at an endpoint computing device. The plugin is uploaded to the new version. The new upgrader-executable that includes an executable with an executable table executed by the plugin is downloaded from the location. The executable is used to halt execution of a JRE application (e.g., a Collector) and download JRE files required for the upgrade. The JRE application (e.g., the Collector) is then re-started with the new configuration, which can be rolled back if the upgrade is unsuccessful.

  • Patent number: 10825095
    Abstract: A system and method for evaluating an insurance applicant as part of an underwriting process to determine one or more appropriate terms of life or other insurance coverage, such as premiums. A processing element employing a neural network is trained to correlate aspects of appearance and/or voice with personal and/or health-related characteristic. A database of images and/or voice recordings of individuals with known personal and/or health-related characteristics is provided for this purpose. The processing element is then provided with an image and/or voice recording of the insurance applicant. The image may be an otherwise non-diagnostic image, such as an ordinary “selfie.

  • Publication number: 20200250757
    Abstract: The present invention concerns methods of providing feedback to a user based on the amount of risk underlying an options contract. The invention uses a display screen, with a selection mechanism, to allow the user to interface directly the with parameters of a potential options, while providing feedback, typically in the form of color changes, vibration, or sounds, to the user while the risk of the options contract increases. Evaluating the underlying risk of an options contract is a difficult process for the individual investor who lacks the advanced mathematical models of institutional investors. The present invention consolidates the factors into a simplified tool that analyzes the factors and communicates risk to the user through the feedback mechanisms.

  • Patent number: 10406722
    Abstract: A plastic melt machine includes a feed screw rotatably mounted in a barrel and driven in rotation about a longitudinal screw axis of the feed screw by a screw drive to plasticize material, and an apparatus for driving a device independently of the feed screw. The device can be any rotatable device associated with the feed screw wherein the device is rotatable about a drive axis and is in fluid communication with the barrel to receive the plasticized material. The drive axis is one of parallel to and offset from the screw axis and extending at an angle relative to the screw axis. A drive shaft couples the device to the device drive for rotating the device independently of the rotation of the feed screw by the screw drive.

  • Publication number: 20150273753
    Abstract: An extruder screw comprises a core extending longitudinally from a feed end to a discharge end thereof. The core has a helical primary thread formed thereon. At least one discontinuity is fog lied in the primary thread to divide the primary thread into a plurality of primary thread portions spaced apart from each other in a longitudinal direction of the core. The at least one discontinuity formed in the primary thread may be formed adjacent a downstream end of a compression section of the screw or spanning a transition from the compression section to a section of the screw disposed downstream of the compression section. The discontinuity in the primary thread militates against the problem of solids wedging by allowing any solid materials being processed by the extruder screw to expand and break apart prior to the core reaching a maximum outer diameter.

  • Publication number: 20100290997
    Abstract: The disclosure includes a composition including a poly(L-glutamic acid) and a NIRF dye. It also includes a method including providing to a plurality of cells an imaging agent including poly(L-glutamic acid), a NIRF dye and then imaging the cells to detect the imaging agent. It further includes a dual functional contrast agent including an MRI agent conjugated with an optical imaging agent. A method of detecting cancer is provided including injecting a dual functional contrast agent into a patient and performing both an MRI and an optical scan. The presence of the agent may indicate cancer. A method of detecting cancer by injecting PG-DTPA-Gd-NIR813 into a patient, then detecting the presence or absence of Gd in a cell or tissue of the patient and detecting the presence or absence of NIR813 in a cell or tissue of the patient is provided. The presence of Gd and NIR813 may indicate cancer.

  • Publication number: 20080269618
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for a non-invasive method for determining the presence or absence of cancerous cells in the skin and deeper tissue levels. The system includes a portable handheld laser coupled with a spectroscopy system to produce real-time material analysis of the presence of cancerous cells without sample preparation. The system focuses a high peak power laser pulse onto a targeted material to produce a laser spark or micro-plasma. Elemental line spectra emission is created, collected and analyzed by a spectrophotometer. The line spectra emission data is quickly displayed on a laptop computer. “Eye-safe” Class I lasers provide for practical in-situ laser plasma spectroscopy applications such as detection of cancerous skin tissues. The emission data can be used to detect changes in the levels of a series of elements that are associated with cancerous cells versus normal skin cells.
