  • Patent number: 11140034
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, apparatus, article of manufacture, method and/or computer program product embodiments, and/or combinations and sub-combinations thereof, for automatically determining the functionality and capabilities of electronic components. Some embodiments operate by transmitting a command to the display device in question (sometimes called the device under test—DUT—herein) and monitoring the device. Then, it is determined whether an action by the display device was one of a set of proper responses to the command. If the action was proper, then it is determined that the display device supports the command set associated with the command. The command set may be the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) set, although this disclosure is not limited to that example.

  • Publication number: 20210304765
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, apparatus, article of manufacture, method and/or computer program product embodiments, and/or combinations and sub-combinations thereof, for providing voice control using multiple digital assistants. In some embodiments, a voice platform operates to receive a voice input from a user. The voice platform selects a digital assistant from a plurality of digital assistants based on a trigger word. The voice platform then generates an intent from the voice input using the selected digital assistant. The voice platform then transmits the intent to a media device for processing.

  • Patent number: 11130558
    Abstract: A barrier for providing isolation between two internal volumes within an aircraft, comprises: a wall section adapted for location within an aircraft, the wall section having an aperture formed therein; mounting means located on the wall section proximate the aperture; and a substantially planar burst panel member having first and second opposingly-facing sides, the burst panel member adapted for location within the mounting means and dimensioned so as to overlie the aperture when received by the mounting means; the burst panel member comprising a line of weakness provided therein, adapted such that, in use, exposure of the burst panel member to an atmospheric pressure differential between air volumes respectively adjacent the first and second sides exceeding a predetermined value causes the burst panel member to rupture along said line of weakness.

  • Publication number: 20210282886
    Abstract: A system for planning and performing a repeat interventional procedure is provided which includes a registration device and an image generation device which map current targets in a reference image for a first interventional procedure to at least one guidance image acquired from a different imaging modality. Biopsy locations are recorded to the guidance images during the first interventional procedure and the biopsy locations are mapped to the reference image to provide a planning image for use in a subsequent interventional procedure on the patient. In a subsequent interventional procedure, the prior planning image (124) may be registered to a current reference image and the prior biopsy locations and prior and current targets are mapped to a guidance image acquired from a different imaging modality. Biopsy locations are then mapped to the guidance image and mapped back to the current reference image.

  • Publication number: 20210279263
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes receiving one or more update requests; identifying, a set of foundational relationships for deletion from a graph database; inferring, using one or more relationship inference rules, a set of inferred relationships for deletion from the graph database; and deleting, from the graph database, the set of foundational relationships for deletion and the set of inferred relationships for deletion. Inferring the set of inferred relationships for deletion includes searching for relationships in the set of foundational relationships for deletion that match a relationship specified in a precondition of at least one of the one or more relationship inference rules; determining whether the precondition is satisfiable using at least one of the matching relationships; and, in response to the precondition being satisfiable, inferring at least one of the relationships of the set of inferred relationships for deletion using at least one of the matching relationships.

  • Patent number: 11105459
    Abstract: An isolation coupler for coupling a functional element to a support structure includes a first bracket. The first bracket includes a number of first-bracket sides. The number of first-bracket sides forms a closed polygonal shape, in plan view. The isolation coupler further includes a number of isolators coupled to each one of the first-bracket sides. The isolation coupler also includes a second bracket. The second bracket includes a number of second-bracket sides. The second bracket sides are coupled to the isolators. The number of second-bracket sides is equal to the number of first-bracket sides and forms the closed polygonal shape, in plan view. The isolators separate each one of the first-bracket sides from a corresponding one of the second-bracket sides to attenuate a load transferred from the first bracket to the second bracket.
