  • Patent number: 10997015
    Abstract: A machine-learning mechanism of a disaster-avoidance system trains a knowledgebase to associate characteristics of a data-center component with corresponding degrees of vulnerability to failure and with remedial steps that may be undertaken to avoid failure or to reduce adverse effects of a failure. This training is performed as a function of inferences derived from historical records and from extrinsic information sources. The historical records identify past failures of similar components, component characteristics associated with past failures, and results of remedial procedures undertaken in response to past failures or to previous occurrences of the characteristics. The extrinsic sources identify the current existence of external conditions known to be associated with past failures.

  • Publication number: 20200246549
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to an injection device for expelling of a number of preset or user-selectable doses of a medicament. The injection device includes an elongated housing extending along an axial direction and configured to accommodate a cartridge containing the medicament and having a bung sealing a proximal end of the cartridge, a windup expelling mechanism, and a dose setting mechanism. The dose setting mechanism includes a handle, a dose tracking member, and a limiter. The dose tracking member is rotatable relative to the housing within a range of positional states and operatively connectable to the handle for tracking a rotation thereof. The limiter is operationally engageable with the dose tracking member and a trigger of the windup expelling mechanism for blocking actuation of the trigger when the dose tracking member is in one of a number of predetermined sections of the range of positional states.

  • Publication number: 20200110937
    Abstract: Introduced here are techniques for incentivizing the consumption of foodstuffs through the use of augmented reality features. A parent may initiate an application on a mobile phone and scan a plate of one or more foodstuffs by initiating a live view captured by a camera. The parent can then select a given foodstuff that a child is unlikely to consume. When the child views the given foodstuff through the mobile phone, a portion of an augmented reality feature could be shown. For example, the child may be able to see the tail of a creature, a corner of a item, etc. As the child consumes the given foodstuff, additional portion(s) of the augmented reality feature are exposed, and the augmented reality feature becomes increasingly visible. Such a technique incentivizes the child to continue eating the given foodstuff so that the augmented reality feature can be fully seen.

  • Publication number: 20190147653
    Abstract: Introduced here are computer programs and computer-implemented techniques for facilitating the placement of augmented reality features in close proximity to a variety of real-world objects, such as tableware objects, drinkware objects, etc. By placing a reference object in a real-world environment, physical objects can be made more recognizable/useful within in the context of augmented reality. For example, a pattern may be printed along the surface of a real-world object to facilitate in the cropping, positioning, and/or animating of an augmented reality feature. Additionally or alternatively, a removable item may be placed on the surface of a real-world object to define a reference orientation.
