  • Patent number: 10706539
    Abstract: A system and method for detecting tumors. Three-dimensional scans of a patient are performed with penetrating radiation, before and/or after the injection of a contrast agent. Raw density arrays are formed from the scans. The median density within an organ is calculated and subtracted from each of the raw density arrays, to form offset arrays. The offset arrays are subtracted pairwise and the differences are summed to form a discriminator array.

  • Publication number: 20200072484
    Abstract: An illustrative HVAC controller may include a communication module for wirelessly communicating with a network and wiring terminals for receiving a wired connection to a remote temperature sensor that is situated remote from the HVAC controller and in a living space of the building. A controller may be operably coupled to the communication module and the wiring terminals and may be configured to implement a thermostat control algorithm to generate one or more control signals, wherein the one or more control signals are provided by a wired connection to the HVAC system to control one or more HVAC components of the HVAC system. The thermostat control algorithm may be configured to compare a sensed temperature received from the remote temperature sensor via the wiring terminals and a temperature setpoint received from the server via the network.

  • Patent number: 10543671
    Abstract: In one aspect, the present disclosure relates to the decorating and printing of three-dimensional edible media on a printable base media based on a user selected image. A base can be determined to support and couple the printed 3D edible media based on the user selected image to the printable base media. Using a user interface, the user selected image can be modified and adapted to print based on a 3D printer's capabilities. Maneuvers of either a platform or a printhead of the 3D printer can be tracked for secondary treatments to either the printed 3D edible media or the printable base media.

  • Patent number: 10521479
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to evaluating different semantic interpretations of a search query. One example method includes obtaining a set of search results for a particular search query submitted to a search engine; obtaining a set of semantic interpretations for the particular search query; obtaining, for each semantic interpretation of the set, a canonical search query; generating a modified search query based at least in part on the particular search query and the canonical search query for the semantic interpretation; obtaining a set of search results for the modified search query for the semantic interpretation; and determining, for each semantic interpretation of the set, a degree of similarity between (i) the set of search results of the modified search query for the semantic interpretation, and (ii) the set of search results for the particular search query.

  • Patent number: 10497635
    Abstract: A stacked package configuration is described that includes a bottom package and an upper package. The bottom package includes a substrate having a top surface with first circuitry and metal first pads. A molded layer is then formed over the substrate. Holes through the molded layer are then laser drilled to expose the first pads. The holes and first pads align with leads of an upper package, which contains further circuit components. The holes are then partially filled with a solder paste. A thermal epoxy is applied between the molded layer and the upper package. The leads of the upper package are then inserted into the holes, and the solder paste is reflowed to electrically, thermally, and mechanically connect the upper package to the bottom package. The reflow heat also cures the epoxy. A ball grid array is then formed on the bottom of the substrate.
