  • Publication number: 20190269592
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a clear or translucent composition which takes the form of a solid, a semi-solid or a viscous gel. The inventive composition contains a mixture of at least two amino acid-based gelatinizing agents, at least one polyamide resin, a non ionic, unsaturated fatty alcohol in an amount which reduces the dissolution temperature of the gelatinizing agents to allow processing at or below 115° C., an alkyl dimethicone, and an oil and/or a polymer component. Additional ingredients depending on the application may also be included in the clear or translucent composition. The present disclosure also relates to methods of producing the clear or translucent composition of the disclosure and uses thereof.

  • Patent number: 9245535
    Abstract: A communications network is used to transfer user attribute information about participants in a communication session to their respective communication terminals for storage and use thereon to configure a speech codec to operate in a speaker-dependent manner, thereby improving speech coding efficiency. In a network-assisted model, the user attribute information is stored on the communications network and selectively transmitted to the communication terminals while in a peer-assisted model, the user attribute information is derived by and transferred between communication terminals.

  • Publication number: 20110091847
    Abstract: A method for adapting a training system based on information obtained from a user using a training system during a training scenario, the method including measuring a neurophysiological state, a physiological state, and/or a behavioral state of a user while a training scenario is in progress, diagnosing at least one performance deficiency of the user and/or a learned training objective while the training scenario is in progress, and adapting the training scenario during the training scenario and/or for a subsequent operation of the training scenario in response to information learned during diagnosing the at least one performance deficiency and/or a learned training objective to meet an objective of the training scenario. A system and computer software code for adapting the training system based on information obtained from the user using the training system during a training scenario is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20070165019
    Abstract: A method for designing a human interface of a system includes establishing guidelines for avoiding sensory overload conditions of a human interacting with the system. The method also includes identifying an event associated with the system producing a potential sensory overload condition. The method further includes generating a human interface design solution based on the guidelines for modifying an operation of the system to help alleviate the potential sensory overload condition associated with the event. A prediction of a performance capability of a human subject interacting with the system may be made by determining a first parameter indicative of an intelligence of a human subject, determining a second parameter indicative of a multiple sensory input memory capacity of the human subject, and determining a third parameter indicative of an interactive monitoring capacity of the human subject and then using the parameters to generate an overall parameter indicative of a performance capacity.

  • Publication number: 20070038443
    Abstract: A communication device receives an encoded signal from a primary input source. The encoded signal includes periods of speech and periods of non-speech. The communication device includes a decoder to decode the received signal to produce a decoded signal. A detector of the communication device detects the periods of speech and the periods of non-speech within the decoded signal. A controller of the communication device provides the decoded signal to an output of the communication device during the periods of speech. The controller interrupts the decoded signal during the periods of non-speech and provides an alternate input from a secondary input source to the communication device.

  • Publication number: 20050233718
    Abstract: A cell phone is provided that may be used with multiple radio formats, such as GSM and CDMA. The cell phone includes a receiver that receives radio signals and converts them into electrical signals. An analog to digital converter is connected to the receiver and converts an analog input to a digital output having an adjustable number of bits at an adjustable sampling frequency. A cell phone application specific integrated circuit is connected to the analog to digital converter, which is used to process the digital output to extract encoded telecommunications data in one of the supported radio formats.
