  • Patent number: 11396372
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to systems and methods for providing a control link for an aircraft in which the control link comprises an impact-resistant structure with a redundant load path. The control link has an inner structure that is sized to carry the anticipated load of the flight control system and to meet all safety factors. The control link also has an outer structure that is sacrificial and configured to absorb impact damage during operation, thereby protecting the inner structure. The outer structure is also designed to carry the anticipated load of the flight control system on its own, independent of the inner structure, and to meet all safety factors. If the outer structure fails, the inner structure allows for continued safe operation of the flight control system. The space or cavity between the inner and outer structures may be filled with a material, such as a closed-cell foam, to improve the impact resistance of the outer structure.

  • Patent number: 11261336
    Abstract: Processes, compositions and agents are included for inhibiting corrosion in various substrates, for example metal substrates. Corrosion inhibitors include organometallic polymers such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), including compositions and processes comprising MOFs for inhibiting corrosion in metal substrates. In some aspects, a method of protecting a substrate from corrosion includes applying a protective composition including a corrosion inhibitor to the surface of a substrate, where the corrosion inhibitor includes a metal organic framework (MOF).

  • Patent number: 10872203
    Abstract: A data input system is described of the type which has a virtual keyboard which enables a user to type a text sequence into a computing device. The data input system has an input probability generator which is configured to compute keypress evidence. The keypress evidence comprises probabilities that user input events at the virtual keyboard correspond to characters or keyboard functions. The data input system has a trained keypress encoder, having been trained using keypress evidence and corresponding words. The trained keypress encoder encodes the keypress evidence into a numerical encoding. The data input system has a completion/correction predictor which is configured to take as input, the numerical encoding and an encoding of one or more text items of the text sequence already input to the computing device, in order to predict a text item in the text sequence.

  • Patent number: 10789529
    Abstract: A data entry system is described which has a user interface which receives a sequence of one or more context text items input by a user. The data entry system has a predictor trained to predict a next item in the sequence. The predictor comprises a plurality of learnt text item embeddings each text item embedding representing a text item in a numerical form, the text item embeddings having a plurality of different lengths. A projection component obtains text item embeddings of the context text items and projects these to be of the same length. The predictor comprises a trained neural network which is fed the projected text item embeddings and which computes a numerical output associated with the predicted next item.

  • Publication number: 20200282085
    Abstract: A method for identifying a patient for cancer therapy can include administering a diagnostic dose of a detectably labeled first binding agent to a patient, the detectably labeled binding agent being capable of binding a molecular target. The method also includes selecting a patient for administration of a therapeutic dose of a second binding agent capable of binding a cellular target, wherein the selected patient exhibits a positive reading for the detectably labeled first binding agent. Furthermore, the method can include administering a therapeutic dose of the second binding agent to the patient.

  • Patent number: 10754441
    Abstract: A text input system is described for inputting text to a computing device. The text input system has a memory storing first evidence comprising text selected by a user for input to the computing device in a first attempt by a user to input intended text. The memory stores second evidence comprising either information about text deleted by the user or text selected by the user in a second attempt at inputting the intended text. The text input system has an input model configured to combine at least the first and second evidence to produce combined evidence; and a text predictor configured to take the combined evidence as input and use the combined evidence to compute a plurality of predicted text items for input to the computing device.

  • Patent number: 10706230
    Abstract: Systems for inputting text into an electronic device are provided. The systems are configured to receive a sequence of characters input into the device. The systems comprise a means configured to generate from the sequence of characters a sequence of word-segments. The systems also comprise a text prediction engine comprising a language model having stored sequences of word-segments. The text prediction engine is configured to receive the sequence of word-segments. In a first embodiment, the text prediction engine is configured to determine whether each word-segment of the sequence of word-segments corresponds to a stored word-segment of the language model and output the sequence of word-segments as a candidate prediction when each of the word-segments of the sequence of word-segments corresponds to a stored word-segment of the language model, regardless of whether the sequence of word-segments corresponds to a stored sequence of word-segments. Various other systems and corresponding methods are provided.

  • Patent number: 10318632
    Abstract: A data input system is described which has a user interface which receives one or more context text items in a sequence of text items input by a user. A processor of the data input system uses a plurality of language models to predict, from each language model, a next item in the sequence of text items. The processor uses a dynamic model which is bespoke to the user as a result of learning text items which the user has previously used, to predict a next item in the sequence of text items. The processor weights the predicted next item from the dynamic model using at least per term weights, each per term weight representing a likelihood of an associated term of the dynamic model given one of the language models.

  • Publication number: 20180150143
    Abstract: A data input system is described for inputting text items to an electronic device. The data input system has a store holding a vocabulary of embeddings of text items, each embedding being a numerical encoding of a text item. The data input system receives user input comprising a sequence of one or more context text items and a new text item, the new text item being a text item with an embedding to be computed and added to the vocabulary or with an embedding already in the vocabulary and to be updated. A neural network predictor predicts a next text item in the sequence given the context text items and the vocabulary. An online training module updates the vocabulary by using either a direction associated with the predicted next item, or, by comparing the new text item and the predicted next text item.

  • Publication number: 20100129144
    Abstract: A universal snap-engagement system for removably connecting separate components together. The first component has a wall defining a channel with an array of flexible teeth extending from the wall into the channel to at least partially obstruct the channel recess. The teeth are spaced-apart and define open slots there between. A separate second component includes a connection peg that has a front wall and a longitudinally-extending sidewall. The sidewall has a groove this is spaced from the front wall and that extends transversely about the peg. The peg is receivable within the channel such that the flexible teeth are deflected by the peg and return to an original non-defected position when seated within the groove to securely connect the first component to the second component. As an alternative, the teeth can extend from the peg and the groove can be formed in the wall of the first component.
