  • Patent number: 11026800
    Abstract: A joint spacer therapeutically maintains separation of bones of a joint. A carriage is slideably retained within the frame and has at least one ramped surface. An actuator screw is threadably engaged with the frame, and rotatably connected to the carriage, to cause the carriage to slideably move within the frame when the actuator screw is rotated. First and second endplates engage the bones of the joint, and each has at least one ramped surface that is mateable with the ramped surface of the carriage, whereby when the carriage is slideably moved by rotation of the actuator screw, the endplates ramped surface slides against the carriage ramped surface to cause the endplates to move along an axis transverse to the longitudinal axis of the frame, to increase the height of the spacer. Piercing elements are connected to the carriage to pierce bone of the joint when the carriage is moved.

  • Patent number: 10973653
    Abstract: An intervertebral spacer and stabilization implant includes a plate having sockets configured for retaining a fastener passable through the socket and into an adjacent vertebral body. One or more connecting projections extend from a side of the plate, to mate with projections extending from a spacer body. A plurality of teeth project from at least one of the upper or lower surfaces of the spacer body, and a chamber is formed through the spacer body to enable bone fusion between the vertebrae. The combined plate and spacer may be inserted to lie completely within the intervertebral space, or a portion of the plate may overlie a vertebral body.

  • Patent number: 10942840
    Abstract: A data processing device includes persistent storage and a software development manager. The persistent storage stores a code repository. The software development manager generates commit impact information based on: pre-commit code for a code base stored in the code repository, and dependency data based on committed code of the code base; displays a pre-commit analysis graphic user interface (GUI) reflecting the commit impact information and testing information for the pre-commit code; obtains, using the displayed pre-commit analysis GUI, reviewer feedback regarding approval of the pre-commit code; makes a determination, based on the reviewer feedback, that the pre-commit code has been approved; in response to the determination: performs limited testing of the code base based upon the dependency data to obtain testing results; and commits the pre-commit code to the committed code when the testing results match a predetermined behavior.

  • Publication number: 20210055995
    Abstract: A method of providing an error occurrence estimate for a proposed software update, before the proposed software update is created, includes training a learning process to cause the learning process to learn a correlation between the complexity of the previous software updates and the error occurrences of the previous software updates. The complexity information may include the number of lines of code and the number of check-in operations that occurred in connection with creation of the previous software updates. The trained learning process is then provided with expected complexity information of a proposed software update, and used to generate an error estimate including the number of errors that are likely to occur, the severity of the errors that are likely to occur, and the amount of software developer time that should be expected to be incurred to correct the errors.
