  • Patent number: 10315106
    Abstract: An optimized friend recommendation system is described. An active social network (ASN) of a player of an online game is determined based on a frequency of reciprocated communications between the player and friends of the player. The ASN of the player has friends of the player with a minimum number of closed-loop communications with the player within a predetermined duration. The social network of non-ASN friends outside the ASN of the player is identified. One or more non-ASN friends identified and suggested to socially engage with the player in an online game based on the social network of non-ASN friends of the player outside the ASN of the player are.

  • Patent number: 10321270
    Abstract: Indoor positioning systems and methods including a reverse-beacon for location determination and presence sensing technology. The reverse-beacon is any device comprising a transceiver and a computer operating with system nodes and will generally be in the form of a smartphone or other mobile computer. The systems and methods utilize wireless signals of any device that adheres to a general-purpose communication protocol, such as Bluetoothâ„¢ and Wi-Fi, to provide location-based services such as location determination and acting as a ground-truth field for presence sensing systems. The systems and methods operate by passively licensing to wireless communications that take place during the ordinarily course of operation of a wireless network irrespective of the presence of the reverse-beacon.

  • Publication number: 20190171871
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system may access first, second, and third probability models that are respectively associated with predetermined first and second body parts and a predetermined segment connecting the first and second body parts. Each model includes probability values associated with regions in an image, with each value representing the probability of the associated region containing the associated body part or segment. The system may select a first and second region based on the first probability model and a third region based on the second probability model. Based on the third probability model, the system may compute a first probability score for regions connecting the first and third regions and a second probability score for regions connecting the second and third regions. Based on the first and second probability scores, the system may select the first region to indicate where the predetermined first body part appears in the image.

  • Patent number: 10308648
    Abstract: The present invention provides novel compounds of Formula (I) and pharmaceutically acceptable salts, solvates, hydrates, tautomers, stereoisomers, isotopically labeled derivatives, and compositions thereof. Also provided are methods and kits involving the compounds or compositions for treating or preventing proliferative diseases (e.g., cancers (e.g., leukemia, melanoma, multiple myeloma), benign neoplasms, angiogenesis, inflammatory diseases, autoinflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases) in a subject. Treatment of a subject with a proliferative disease using a compound or composition of the invention may inhibit the aberrant activity of cyclin-dependent kinase (e.g., CDK7), and therefore induce cellular apoptosis and/or inhibit transcription in the subject.

  • Patent number: 10296617
    Abstract: Techniques related to searches of highly structured data are described. A body of data may be represented by an object-centric data model. For a search of the body of data, an indication of a particular search template to use may be received. The particular search template may specify one or more hierarchical object types that are within a scope of the search. The one or more hierarchical object types may be defined in the object-centric data model. The particular search template may specify at least one search field. A user interface may be generated based on the particular search template. The user interface may include the at least one search field.

  • Publication number: 20190142534
    Abstract: Devices, systems and methods for detecting a position of an object with a robot surgical system having an articulable, separable camera stand. The surgical robot system may include a robot having a robot base with a robot arm and an end-effector coupled to the robot arm. The end-effector, surgical instruments, the patient, other objects, or any combination thereof, may be tracked via active and/or passive tracking markers. A camera, such as an infrared camera, a bifocal camera or a stereophotogrammetric infrared camera, is mounted on a separable camera stand and is able to detect the tracking markers when in use. Using the camera, the robot determines a position of the object from the tracking markers, which may be a three-dimensional position of the object or the markers. When convenient, the camera base may be assembled into the robot base, e.g., by sliding the camera base into the robot.

  • Publication number: 20190145842
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a sensor. In particular, the present invention is related to a dual-cavity pressure sensor die and its fabrication process. The pressure sensor comprises a chamber inside which a pressure sensor die is provided. The pressure sensor die is uniformly compressed by the external pressure to be measured and can deform freely inside the chamber. The pressure sensor die is primarily constructed of single crystalline silicon and comprises a cap, a substrate and a base connected together. A recess is formed on the cap. The recess forms an upper sealed cavity with the substrate. A silicon oxide layer is formed between the substrate and the cap. The substrate further comprises a plurality of piezoresistive sensing elements which are located inside the upper sealed cavity. A recess is formed on the base. The recess forms a lower sealed cavity with the substrate. The present pressure sensor is more immune to temperature effects.

  • Publication number: 20180132839
    Abstract: A surgical robot system includes a robot having a robot base and a robot arm coupled to the robot base, and a surgical retractor. The surgical retractor includes a retractor frame, a coupler, blades, a force and/or torque sensor, and a force and/or torque feedback determination unit. The retractor frame includes arms that are translatably and/or pivotably connected to the retractor frame. The coupler releasably attaches the retractor frame to the robot arm. The blades are each coupled to and extend away from a distal end of one of the arms. The force and/or torque sensor is connected to the blades and indicates an amount of force and/or torque being applied to the blades from contact with material of a surgical site. The force and/or torque feedback determination unit determines the amount of force and/or torque being applied to the blades based on the indication.
