  • Publication number: 20210383251
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses are described herein for performing sentiment analysis on electronic communications relating to one or more image-based communications methods, such as emoji. Message data may be received. The message data may correspond to a message that is intended to be sent but has not yet been sent to an application. Using a first machine learning model, one or more subsets of the plurality of emoji may be determined. The one or more subsets of the plurality of emoji may comprise one or more different types and quantities of emoji, and may each correspond to the same or a different sentiment. Using a second machine learning model, one or more emojis may be selected from the one or more subsets. The one or more emojis selected may correspond to responses to the message.

  • Patent number: 11192375
    Abstract: DOD ink delivery systems and methods are described herein that are used in DOD card printing systems of card processing systems for supplying ink for DOD printing on plastic cards of the type that bear personalized data unique to the intended cardholder and/or which bear other card information. The DOD ink delivery system is configured to recirculate the ink, or have a second pressure damper container that provides damping to eliminate large and abrupt spikes in ink pressure which can disturb the meniscus of the ink in each nozzle of the print head generated by a vacuum system, or simultaneously operate a supply pump at a lower flow rate than a return pump during an autofill/autodrain procedure on the ink delivery system.

  • Publication number: 20210357525
    Abstract: Systems and methods disclosed herein securely provide confidential information associated with a user during an active voice call conducted using the user's mobile device. The confidential information may be provided by generating the information in spoken form and inserting the spoken information into an audio stream of the voice call. For example, a customer may be on a phone call with a customer agent. The customer agent may ask the customer for a credit card number in order to process a financial transaction. The customer may select the credit card number via an application executing on the customer's mobile phone. The application may cause the credit card number to be spoken out loud during the voice call. A voice sample of the spoken credit card number in inserted into the audio stream of the voice call and is therefore, audible to the customer and the customer agent without being overheard by a third party.

  • Publication number: 20210358008
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for recommending a service provider. An embodiment operates by receiving a search request specifying a service request by a user and location for the requested service, retrieving prior financial transactions of the user to purchase the service from a database, and determining a preference of the user based on the retrieved prior financial transactions. The embodiment further operates by applying the preference to a model trained to output a recommended service provider and selecting the recommended service provider for display on a user's device. The model more likely recommends service providers in the location having a higher ratio of tip-to-price relative to other providers for the service in the location based on a history of prior financial transactions of a plurality of users.

  • Publication number: 20210358330
    Abstract: In certain embodiments, nuance-based augmentation of gesture may be facilitated. In some embodiments, a video stream depicting sign language gestures of an individual may be obtained via a wearable device associated with a user. A textual translation of the sign language gestures in the video stream may be determined. Emphasis information related to the sign language gestures may be identified based on an intensity of the sign language gestures. One or more display characteristics may be determined based on the emphasis information. The textual translation may be caused to be displayed to the user via the wearable device according to the one or more display characteristics. In some embodiments, a unique voice profile for the individual may be determined. A spoken translation of the sign language gestures may be generated according to the textual translation, the unique voice profile, and the emphasis information.

  • Publication number: 20210319437
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for anonymizing online transaction details may include performing a process to generate an identifier (ID) and reference address for a user, and receiving a request for transaction processing from an e-commerce server. The request may include first data including: information associated with a purchase of a product to be delivered to the user; the identifier; and the reference address. The method may further include: in response to the request, determining whether the ID and reference address are included in the request, and if so, obtaining the accurate address and shipping rate rules; applying, based on the first data and the accurate address, the shipping rate rules to determine accurate shipping rate cost information associated with delivering the product to the accurate address; performing an anonymizing process on the accurate information to obtain anonymous shipping rate information, and transmitting the anonymous shipping rate information to the e-commerce server.

  • Patent number: 11142299
    Abstract: An aircraft wing has a flap arrangement with an inboard flap configured to move in a chordwise extension direction relative to the wing, the inboard flap having an outboard side, and an outboard flap adjacent to the inboard flap and configured to move in the chordwise extension direction relative to the wing, the outboard flap including an inboard side. A flap interconnect between the inboard flap and outboard flap has a roller mounted to a pin extending from the outboard side of the inboard flap and a guide track extending from the inboard side of the outboard flap. The guide track engages the roller on the inboard flap to limit deflection of the outboard flap relative to the inboard flap during movement of the inboard flap in the chordwise extension direction and movement of the outboard flap in the chordwise extension direction, to provide relative alignment of the inboard flap and outboard flap.

  • Patent number: 11077665
    Abstract: A card processing system includes a drop-on-demand card printing system that has at least one drop-on-demand print head with a nozzle plate. An automated cleaning mechanism is provided in the drop-on-demand card printing system that is configured to clean the nozzle plate without the cleaning mechanism physically contacting the nozzle plate. Since the nozzle plate is not physically contacted by the cleaning mechanism, damage to the nozzle plate during cleaning is avoided thereby avoiding degrading the resulting print quality of the print head.

  • Patent number: 11034432
    Abstract: A trailing edge flap actuation mechanism has a flap drive link with a first end pivotally coupled to a fore flap structure of a flap and a second end pivotally coupled to an underwing support structure. An aft tension link has a leading end pivotally coupled proximate an aft end of the underwing support structure and a trailing end coupled to a mid-section structure of the flap. An actuator, when actuated, rotates the flap drive link about a first pivot axle to move the flap between a retracted position and a deployed lowered position. The actuator, including a ball-screw drive shaft having a universal joint, is positioned in a cove above the underwing support structure whereby the extent that the underwing support structure protrudes below the wing is reduced.

  • Patent number: 10905330
    Abstract: The subject matter disclosed herein describes an improved MR imaging system for breast tissue. The MR imaging system includes a pair of antenna coil arrays that are movable with respect to a base plate on which the coil arrays are mounted. A fixed coil array may also be mounted in a medial location on the base plate. The MR imaging system provides an abdominal support structure and a head support structure to position a patient in a prone position over the movable and fixed coil arrays. An additional support pad may be provided on the upper surface of the medial coil to support the patient's chest. Each of the movable antenna coil arrays may be moved laterally along the base plate to adjust the space between the two arrays. Once adjusted, each of the movable antenna coil arrays may be secured in the adjusted position to immobilize the breast tissue.
