  • Patent number: 10578357
    Abstract: An annular divided wall column for the cryogenic rectification of air or constituents of air is provided. The annular divided wall column includes a first annular column wall and a second annular column wall disposed within the first annular column wall to define an annulus column region and an interior core column region. The present annular divided wall column further includes structured packing elements disposed within at least the annulus column region as well as a ring-shaped cantilevered collector; and a ring-shaped distributor disposed in the annulus column region above or below the plurality of structured packing elements. The thermal expansion and contraction of the second annular column wall in a radial direction and in an axial direction is independent of the thermal expansion and contraction of the first annular column wall in the radial and axial directions.

  • Patent number: 10572903
    Abstract: A server receives incoming data records comprising an ID value and respective user attributes corresponding to a user activity that originates at a user device. Characteristics of the activity and/or characteristics of the user device are considered in order to assign a probabilistic confidence value, which is in turn used to generate links from an incoming data record to other previously-received data records, and in so doing, generates a probabilistic link between one set of user attributes from the incoming data record and another set of user attributes from previously-received data records. A messaging campaign specification that describes target user attributes is used to identify a matching set of target audience member records. The determination of a match or not is based on the probabilistic confidence value and a threshold can be varied to extend audience reach. The identified set of target audience member records are transmitted over a network.

  • Patent number: 10459832
    Abstract: Embodiments presented herein describe techniques for tracking operators of a distributed computing environment (e.g., a streams processing environment) using metadata. During execution of a distributed application of the computing environment, a tracker tool monitors a plurality of operators of the distributed application. Each of the operators stores one or more specified metadata values associated with the operator. For each operator, the tracker tool retrieves the one or more specified metadata values associated with the operator. Upon determining that one of the one or more specified metadata values do not comply with a corresponding expected metadata value, the tracker tool generates an indicator for the operator. The indicator includes information describing the one or more specified metadata values.

  • Publication number: 20190274687
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a magnetic anastomosis device (MAD), a delivery catheter for the MAD, and a method for treating at least one of diabetes, obesity, digestive disease, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. In embodiments of the present invention, a pair of the MADs are delivered in body lumen by endoscopic and/or laparoscopic techniques. An anastomosis between two adjacent body lumens is formed by compression of the pair of MADs followed by necrosis and regeneration of the lumen tissue. The bodily fluids are then redirected through the formed anastomosis to relieve disease symptoms.
