  • 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: 20210052395
    Abstract: The present invention provides an expandable fusion device capable of being installed inside an intervertebral disc space to maintain normal disc spacing and restore spinal stability, thereby facilitating an intervertebral fusion. In one embodiment, the fusion device includes a body portion, a first endplate, and a second endplate, the first and second endplates capable of being moved in a direction away from the body portion into an expanded configuration or capable of being moved towards the body portion into an unexpanded configuration. The fusion device is capable of being deployed and installed in both configurations.

  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20210051170
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed wherein a risk score is generated by interrogating multiple sources of information across a network. The information is aggregated, such that every network action for individuals and organizations are turned into a unique behavioral model, which can be used as a unique identifier (“fingerprint”). This fingerprint is in turn used by a personalized Trust Guardian System to block, modify and/or allow network actions.

  • Publication number: 20210015631
    Abstract: An apparatus for inserting an implant between vertebrae includes a body having a through bore, a central shaft movable within the through bore, the central shaft having a proximal end and a distal end. The apparatus includes a pair of distractor arms having proximal portions and distal portions, the proximal portions pivotally coupled to the body and distal portions for engagement between the vertebrae. Tracking slots are formed in and extend through surfaces of and along a longitudinal axes of the distractor arms and an attachment tip is operably connected to the central shaft, the attachment tip is configured to grip the implant. The apparatus includes a single guide member projecting outward from the attachment tip and the attachment tip is removably connectable to the central shaft in multiple configurations.

  • Publication number: 20210004779
    Abstract: A document handler system and method includes timed operation functionality in which the manufacturer of the document handler may input coded information in the document handler to establish a timed operation of the document handler which may be contingent on continued payments for use of the document handler. Alternatively, or in addition, the timed operation may be used to establish an appropriate warranty period during which the manufacturer is obligated to provide repairs, modification and/or support for the document handler.

  • Patent number: 10864985
    Abstract: A centrifugal force (CF) bearing for a rotorcraft rotor assembly includes an inner-member, an outer-member, and an elastic member interposed between the inner- and outer-members. The inner-member includes a boss configured for location to and engagement with a yoke. The boss includes a tapered profile (e.g., conic) portion. A tapered recess region of the yoke includes a profile that is substantially matched to receive and contact the tapered profile of the boss. The CF bearing is configured for attachment to a grip of the rotor assembly. The boss is configured to communicate mechanical loads (e.g., centrifugal force, lateral shear, vertical shear) from the grip to the yoke during operation of the rotor assembly.
