  • Patent number: 10216829
    Abstract: A method for a processing device to determine whether to assign a data item to at least one cluster of data items is disclosed. The processing device may identify a signature of the data item, the signature including a set of elements. The processing device may select a subset of the set of elements to form at least one partial signature. The processing device may combine the selected subset of elements into at least one token. The processing device may determine whether the at least one token is present in a memory. The memory may be configured to contain an existing set of tokens. The processing device may determine whether to assign the data item to at least one cluster based on whether the at least one token is present in the memory.

  • Publication number: 20180203916
    Abstract: A method and system for a processing device to assign a data item to at least one cluster of data items is disclosed. The processing device may identify a signature of the data item, the signature including a set of elements. The processing device may derive a first size value of the number of elements of the identified signature based on a set of size values of signatures that includes a maximum size value representing the largest number of elements in a signature. The processing device may derive a set of second size values of the number of elements of a second signature that is similar to the identified signature based on the set of size values of signatures. The processing device may generate a plurality of partial signatures from one or more combinations of elements of the identified signature. For each partial signature of the plurality of partial signatures, the processing device may combine the elements of the partial signature into one or more tokens.

  • Publication number: 20180203917
    Abstract: A method for a processing device to group data items of a list of data items is disclosed. The processing device may identify a signature of a data item, the signature including a set of elements. The processing device may select a subset of the elements of the identified signature to form one or more partial signatures. The processing device may combine the selected subset of elements to form one or more tokens. The processing device may determine whether the one or more tokens is marked with one or more markers in a memory, the memory configured to contain an existing set of markers for tokens. The processing device may assign the data item to at least one group when one or more tokens is marked with the one or more markers in the memory.

  • Publication number: 20170241242
    Abstract: A downhole drill pipe may comprise a transducer disposed therein, capable of converting energy from flowing fluid into electrical energy. A portion of a fluid flowing through the drill pipe may be diverted to the transducer. After passing the transducer, the diverted portion of the fluid may be discharged to an exterior of the drill pipe. To generate electrical energy while not obstructing the main fluid flow from passing through the drill pipe, the transducer may be disposed within a lateral sidewall of the drill pipe with an outlet for discharging fluid exposed on an exterior of the lateral sidewall.

  • Patent number: 9678231
    Abstract: Methods or systems for identifying seismic or acoustic signals of interest originating with moving motorized vehicles or footstep movement or stationary or moving machinery. A related system for monitoring an area includes a plurality of sensing devices each comprising a frame and a piezo-electric sensor element. A monitoring device is coupled to receive information from each of the sensing devices. One method includes providing a processing chain coupled to receive signal data from a sensor device which receives the signals, including a detection stage, a Joint Time Frequency (JTF) domain stage, and a classification stage. The detection stage identifies presence of signals that emerge from the background. The JTF domain stage estimates the state of the signals of interest over time. The classification stage assesses the previously derived information to form a decision about source identity. In one embodiment, the detector stage performs detections on a single cycle basis.

  • Patent number: 9556682
    Abstract: An underreamer for increasing a diameter of a wellbore. The underreamer may include a body having an axial bore extending at least partially therethrough. An electromagnetic activation system may be disposed at least partially within the bore of the body. A valve may be disposed within the bore of the body and coupled to the electromagnetic activation system. The valve may include a mobile element and a static element. The mobile element may be coupled to the electromagnetic activation system and move from a first position where the mobile element obstructs fluid flow through the valve to a second position where the mobile element permits fluid flow through the valve. A cutter block may be movably coupled to the body and move radially-outward as the mobile element moves from the first position to the second position.

  • Patent number: 9313149
    Abstract: A method for determining influential broadcast messages in which a processing device identifies a plurality of re-posts of a post, wherein each re-post comprises a time stamp, determines whether the time stamp of the re-post is within a first time interval or a second time interval, increments a first count associated with the first time interval when the time stamp is within the first time interval or a second count associated with the second time interval when the time stamp is within the second time interval, and determines a public sentiment attribute associated with the post in view of a comparison between the first count and the second count.

  • Publication number: 20150275582
    Abstract: Downhole drilling often requires passing drilling fluid containing water mixed with mud through a downhole drill pipe. Such drill pipe may comprise cavities therein for working units such as motors, generators, solenoids and the like. It may be desirable to lubricate and cool such working units with water from the drilling fluid, however, mud particulate may damage such devices. The present invention comprises various embodiments of a dynamic seal assembly designed to allow fluid communication between a cavity and a fluid flow while blocking certain particulate matter within the fluid flow from entering the cavity. The fluid communication may occur through and the particulate matter may be blocked by a defined clearance between two complementary surfaces that are movable relative to each other.
