  • Patent number: 10764809
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented in this disclosure that enable mobile devices without access to an active network connection (e.g. cellular, satellite or Internet network) to communicate between each other by sending and receiving data packets (e.g. text, location, or image) through a mesh of connected devices. A packet for forwarding is included into a mesh forwarding list at a mobile device, wherein the mesh forwarding list includes packets for forwarding to one or more mobile devices. The mobile device checks, in each packet within the mesh forwarding list, a list with at least one identifier of at least one wireless device that has already received the packet. The mobile device forwards the mesh forwarding list to the one or more wireless devices via at least one connection, based on the checked one or more identifiers.

  • Publication number: 20200199334
    Abstract: Dual composition block copolymers made from conjugated diene and monovinyl aromatic monomers in batch organolithium initiated polymerization show advantageous performance in the production of crosslinked microcellular rubber compounds and pressure sensitive hot melt adhesives. The block copolymers are partially coupled molecules with a coupling agent linking inner monovinyl aromatic blocks. An un-coupled low molecular weight fraction has greater monovinyl aromatic repeat unit content than a coupled high molecular weight fraction. Crosslinked microcellular rubber articles made from the block copolymers exhibit lower density, smaller and more homogeneous cell size, higher softness and higher resiliency than prior art block copolymers. Rubber compounding of formulations comprising the block copolymers proceed at slightly lower torque and slightly lower temperature than with prior art block copolymers.

  • Patent number: 10657158
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for automatically generating data extraction templates for structured documents (e.g., B2C emails, invoices, bills, invitations, etc.), and for assigning classifications to those data extraction templates to streamline data extraction from subsequent structured documents. In various implementations, a data extraction template generated from a cluster of structured documents that share fixed content may be identified. Features of the cluster of structured documents may be applied as input to extraction machine learning model(s) trained to provide location(s) of transient field(s) in structured documents, to determine location(s) of transient field(s) in the cluster of structured documents. An association between the data extraction template and the determined transient field location(s) may be stored. Based on the association, data point(s) may be extracted from a given structured document of a user that shares fixed content with the cluster of structured documents.
