  • Patent number: 10195901
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for alerting drivers of hazardous driving conditions using the sensing capabilities of wearable mobile technology. In one aspect, a method for alerting drivers of hazardous driving conditions includes the steps of: collecting real-time data from a driver of a vehicle, wherein the data is collected via a mobile device worn by the driver; determining whether the real-time data indicates that a hazardous driving condition exists; providing feedback to the driver if the real-time data indicates that a hazardous driving condition exists, and continuing to collect data from the driver in real-time if the real-time data indicates that a hazardous driving condition does not exist. The real-time data may also be collected and used to learn characteristics of the driver. These characteristics can be compared with the data being collected to help determine, in real-time, whether the driving behavior is normal and whether a hazardous driving condition exists.

  • Publication number: 20180366143
    Abstract: Monitoring and analysis of a user's speech to detect symptoms of a mental health disorder by continuously monitoring a user's speech in real-time to generate audio data based, transcribing the audio data to text and analyzing the text of the audio data to determine a sentiment of the audio data is disclosed. A trained machine learning model may be applied to correlate the text and the determined sentiment to clinical information associated with symptoms of a mental health disorder to determine whether the symptoms are a symptom event. The initial determination may be transmitted to a second device to determine (and/or verify) whether or not the symptom event was falsely recognized.

  • Publication number: 20180197858
    Abstract: A method for fabricating fin field effect transistors comprises creating a pattern of self-aligned small cavities for P-type material growth using at least two hard mask layers, generating a pre-defined isolation area around each small cavity using a vertical spacer, selectively removing N-type material from the self-aligned small cavities, and growing P-type material in the small cavities. The P-type material may be silicon germanium (SiGe) and the N-type material may be tensile Silicon (t-Si). The pattern of self-aligned small cavities for P-type material growth is created by depositing two hard mask materials over a starting substrate wafer, selectively depositing photo resist over a plurality N-type areas, reactive ion etching to remove the second hard mask layer material over areas not covered by photo resist to create gaps in second hard mask layer, and removing the photo resist to expose the second hard mask material in the N-type areas.

    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes tracking, using a computer processor, a position of a receiver in real space. A set of images is generated, using the computer processor, where the set of images represents a position of the receiver in virtual space, and where the position of the receiver in virtual space corresponds to the position of the receiver in real space. The set of images is transmitted, using a light fidelity (LiFi) communication system, to a display.
