  • Patent number: 10914735
    Abstract: Accordingly, in some embodiments methods for detecting an analyte or analytes in one or more sample(s) are provided. The methods encompass providing a solid support with an addressable marker and an associated ligand, contacting the solid substrate to a sample, thereby forming a contacted solid support, associating the contacted solid support with a FET array and detecting the electrical properties of the FET array and thereby detecting an analyte or analytes in one or more samples. In other embodiments, the sample encompasses a second addressable marker.

  • Publication number: 20200380023
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for classifying data objects. One of the methods includes obtaining data that associates each term in a vocabulary of terms with a respective high-dimensional representation of the term; obtaining classification data for a data object, wherein the classification data includes a respective score for each of a plurality of categories, and wherein each of the categories is associated with a respective category label; computing an aggregate high-dimensional representation for the data object from high-dimensional representations for the category labels associated with the categories and the respective scores; identifying a first term in the vocabulary of terms having a high-dimensional representation that is closest to the aggregate high-dimensional representation; and selecting the first term as a category label for the data object.

  • Publication number: 20200297535
    Abstract: A medical instrument and method is described for facilitating lacrimal occlusion. The instrument has two arms for holding a plug being inserted through the punctum, each arm having a distal end and a proximal end. Attached to the proximal end of the arms is a dilator oriented in the opposite direction along the longitudinal axis of the instrument. The instrument is conveniently rotated in the hand of the practitioner to alternately present the functioning end of the instrument as either the distal end of the arms (for holding a plug) or the distal end of the dilator (for enlarging the punctum prior to attempting to inserting the plug). The instrument has a means for moving the two arms near to each other and away from each, and a means for holding the two arms near to each other without requiring closing pressure applied by the practitioner.

  • Publication number: 20200012905
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are disclosed for labeling objects within an image. The objects may be labeled by selecting an option from a plurality of options such that each option is a potential label for the object. An option may have an option score associated with. Additionally, a relation score may be calculated for a first option and a second option corresponding to a second object in an image. The relation score may be based on a frequency, probability, or observance corresponding to the co-occurrence of text associated with the first option and the second option in a text corpus such as the World Wide Web. An option may be selected as a label for an object based on a global score calculated based at least on an option score and relation score associated with the option.
