  • Patent number: 9971743
    Abstract: As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, media content from disparate content providers is restructured into one or more renditions having an article-oriented structure. Linking data is generated to link respective portions of each rendition with media content in the respective sets of media content. Users are allowed to access information characterizing the renditions in the article-oriented structure, and user inputs pertaining to the information characterizing the media content sets is collected. Portions of each rendition are transmitted to remote users based on the user inputs, authorization data, linking data and characteristics of the remote users' access.

  • Patent number: 9971739
    Abstract: As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, aspects of the present disclosure are directed to methods and apparatuses involving the presentation of media content as follows. Different types of media content data having disparate formats and corresponding to respective sets of media content received from disparate content providers, are reformatted into media content data in a common format type. Analytics data providing information characterizing a plurality of users is accessed and utilized in restructuring portions of the media content data in the common format type into renditions having an article-oriented structure defined by the common format type. In various implementations, device-indeterminate ID linking data is generated, which links respective portions of each rendition with corresponding portions of the media content data from which the respective portions were generated.

  • Patent number: 9971738
    Abstract: As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, respective sets of media content data, having disparate formats, are received from disparate content providers. The content is reformatted into a common format type and restructured into renditions having an article-oriented structure. Reformatted assets are generated for each rendition based upon characteristics of devices by which the renditions are to be accessed. Device-indeterminate ID linking data is generated for linking portions of each rendition with the media content data received from the content providers.

  • Patent number: 9971744
    Abstract: As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, portions of media content data corresponding to respective sets of media content received from disparate content providers are restructured into renditions having an article-oriented structure. Device-indeterminate ID linking data is generated to link respective portions of each rendition with media content in the respective sets of media content. For each content provider, access is provided to portions of the restructured renditions bearing the content provider's content, based on the device-indeterminate ID linking data (e.g., providing verification of resulting content layout). Access is also provided to tracked subscriber access to ones of the restructured renditions bearing the content provider's content.

  • Patent number: 9965107
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a stylus includes electrodes operable to transmit signals wirelessly to a device through a touch sensor of the device. The stylus also includes one or more computer-readable non-transitory storage media within the stylus and embodying logic that is operable when executed to access first data representing a gesture made with the stylus by a user, such as a sequence of manipulations of the stylus. The logic is further operable to access second data representing a pre-defined authentication sequence and compare the first data with the second data. This comparison may authenticate the user to the stylus or the device, authenticate the stylus to the device or the user, or authenticate the device to the stylus or the user.

  • Patent number: 9916846
    Abstract: A system and method for determining an amount of speech in an audio signal may include for example: obtaining segments of the audio signal, wherein the segments are grouped into blocks; for each one of the segments, calculating a segment value indicative of an amplitude of the audio signal of a respective segment; for each one of the blocks calculating a block value indicative of the amplitude of the audio signal of a respective block; and calculating an audio signal speech grade based on segment values and block values, wherein the audio signal speech grade is indicative of the amount of speech in the audio signal.

  • Patent number: 9848883
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes an occlusion device and methods of delivering the occlusion device. The occlusion device can include an expandable structure configured to move between an unexpanded configuration and an expanded configuration. The expandable structure can be configured to have an expansion ratio of at least about 5:1. Further, the occlusion device can be configured to prevent substantially all fluid from flowing past the occlusion device when the occlusion device is in the expanded configuration in the vessel.

  • Patent number: 9737426
    Abstract: Modular endograft devices and associated systems and methods are disclosed herein. In several embodiments, an endograft system can include constrained first and second endograft devices that extend across a vascular defect and expanded to press mating septal walls against each other. At least one of the endograft devices can include a fenestration that is aligned with a renal artery to provide bloodflow to the artery. A delivery device configured in accordance with the present technology can include a guidewire that passes through the fenestration to guide the endograft to an implant site and self align the fenestration with the renal artery to facilitate connection of the endograft to the renal artery. An additional stent can be connected to the fenestration to secure the renal artery to the endograft device.

  • Patent number: 9572652
    Abstract: Modular endograft devices and associated systems and methods are disclosed herein. In several embodiments, an endograft system can include a first endograft device and a second endograft device that each include an integrated frame, a cover and a lumen within the cover. Each endograft device further includes a superior portion and an inferior portion. The superior portion can have a convexly curved outer wall and a septal wall. The first and second endograft devices can be configured to extend into a low-profile configuration with a first cross-sectional dimension and a first length and self-expand into an expanded configuration with a second cross-sectional dimension greater than the first cross-sectional dimension and a second length less than the first length. In the expanded configuration, the septal walls can press against each other and form a septum between the lumens of the first and second endograft devices.
