  • Patent number: 11385914
    Abstract: A content creation application can include a feature that receives an inline note within a document and communicates the content of the inline note and a user identifier associated with an author of the inline note to an intelligence service. The intelligence service can identify, from the content of the inline note, one or more agents and a request, the identified one or more agents being the author, one or more person agents, one or more bot agents, or a combination thereof. Based on the identified agent (or lack thereof), the intelligence service can generate a message to each of the one or more agents and communicate the message to the each of the one or more agents over a communication channel. A person agent or the author can receive the message and view the message using the appropriate communication application without accessing the original document.

  • Publication number: 20210012426
    Abstract: A method is performed on a processor for detecting duplication anomalies in a set of patient dental insurance records submitted as part of a dental insurance claim. At least one hash code is generated for at least some of the patient dental insurance record documents. A Hamming Distance is calculated by comparing the hash code(s) of recently submitted patient dental insurance record documents against a database which includes hash codes generated from previous dental insurance claims. Those dental insurance forms are flagged for further human review if the calculated Hamming Distance between the compared hash codes is less than a threshold amount.

  • Publication number: 20200015764
    Abstract: Teeth are screened for periodontal disease using digitized images manipulated and annotated on a processor. A digitized radiographic image of a tooth shows locations of a bone boundary and a cemento-enamel junction (CEJ) of the tooth. The digitized radiographic image is marked on the processor with a location on the bone boundary and with a pair of CEJ points at opposite ends of the CEJ visible in the radiograph. A ratio between (a) a distance between the bone boundary location and the adjacent CEJ point as numerator and (b) a distance between the CEJ points as denominator is calculated on the processor and compared with a threshold ratio-value for a corresponding tooth from a database accessible by the processor. A calculated ratio-value which is greater than the database threshold ratio-value is indicative of periodontal disease in the tooth. The probability of the correct diagnostic decision is determined by the relative magnitude of the calculated ratio-value and the threshold ratio-value.

  • Publication number: 20170218947
    Abstract: An apparatus, method, and non-transitory computer readable recording medium to control a pump system may include a memory storing instructions and a processor that executes the instructions to obtain initial motor data of a motor controlled by a variable frequency drive (VFD) and determine a normal speed baseline of the motor based on the obtained initial motor data. The processor may also obtain current motor data of the motor, detect a pump-off event of the pump system when the current motor data deviates from the normal speed baseline, and control the VFD in response to the detected pump off event.

  • Patent number: 8965637
    Abstract: A method of operating a working machine which includes a main structure and a working arm pivotally mounted at one end on the main structure. The working arm is raisable and lowerable relative to the main structure by a first actuator device, and is extendible relative to the main structure by a second actuator device. In use, the arm carries at another end a working implement which can carry a load. The machine further including a ground engaging drive structure by which the machine is drivable on the ground. The machine has a longitudinal load moment control system which automatically disables operation of the first and/or second actuator devices from increasing longitudinal instability in the event that a predetermined instability is sensed. When the machine senses a ground travelling speed above a threshold speed, the longitudinal load moment control system is disabled.

  • Publication number: 20150013635
    Abstract: An engine combustion system includes a power cylinder and a gear assembly, the piston having respective intake and exhaust valves. The power cylinder includes a connecting rod pivotally attached to a bottom of the piston and extends vertically downwardly in vertical alignment with a gear assembly. A movable rack gear is coupled to the connecting rod and in communication with a rotatably mounted central gear. When an air/fuel mixture is ignited within the power cylinder fuel chamber, the connecting rod is urged downward causing linear movement of the rack gear in operative communication with the rotatably mounted central gear such that the power generated thereby is translated to a vehicle transmission or power train without angular inefficiency of a traditional crankshaft system.

  • Patent number: 7708352
    Abstract: A vehicle axle includes an axle housing defining a cavity. The axle includes a pair of outer drive shafts, each being coaxially received in a respective housing cavity and slidable therein, each outer drive shaft defining a splined cavity. The axle includes a pair of inner drive shafts, each having a splined end coaxially coupled to a respective outer drive shaft splined cavity such that a respective outer drive shaft is slidably movable therein. A piston is attached to the inner end of each outer drive shaft and separates an inner fluid chamber from an outer fluid chamber. A fluid channel includes opposed ends in communication with respective fluid chambers. A force absorption container is in fluid communication with each fluid channel and includes a compression spring, wherein the spring is compressed when movement of the piston pushes fluid through the channel into the force absorption container.
