  • Patent number: 11900294
    Abstract: Systems and methods for automated path-based recommendation for risk mitigation are provided. An entity assessment server, responsive to a request for a recommendation for modifying a current risk assessment score of an entity to a target nsk assessment score, accesses an input attribute vector for the entity and clusters of entities defined by historical attribute vectors. The entity assessment server assigns the input attribute vector to a particular cluster and determines a requirement on movement from a first point to a second point in a multi-dimensional space based on the statistics computed from the particular cluster. The first point corresponds to the current risk assessment score and the second point corresponds to the target risk assessment score. The entity assessment server computes an attribute-change vector so that a path defined by the attribute-change vector complies with the requirement and generates the recommendation from the attribute-change vector.

  • Patent number: 11693036
    Abstract: A utility meter includes a consumption measurement unit for generating consumption data, a meter processor, and a RTC for time stamping the consumption data to provide interval meter data during interval meter operation. A memory stores the interval meter data. The meter processor implements/initiates responsive to a power loss that suspends RTC operation, switching from interval to relative time operation where consumption data is stored as relative consumption data together with a relative time as relative meter data. Responsive power restoration and receiving a current time, the meter switches from relative time to interval meter operation. The restoration time is calculated using the current and an elapsed time since the restoration. The time of restoration and current time is used to generate calculated times. The consumption data from relative time operation is time stamped with the calculated times to provide time-corrected relative meter data that is stored to the memory.

  • Publication number: 20230177198
    Abstract: Distributed Permissioned Data (DPD) network to securely store encrypted data by distributing multiple copies of data fragments in resilient nodes in the network. Data fragments are stored in multiple node chains in the network. Storing data in this distributed fashion offsets conditions where some nodes are not available because they are offline or unreachable. Nodes may also have other constraints placed on them, such as bandwidth utilization, storage limits, and CPU allocation. Multiple versions (replicas) of the data fragments are stored in multiple nodes to provide resiliency. By properly selecting a number of data fragments and a number of replicas, data stored in the network will be highly available.

  • Publication number: 20230125244
    Abstract: The invention relates to an apparatus for vapour decontamination of an enclosed space. The apparatus comprises: (a) a reservoir comprising a supply of a liquid decontaminant; and (b) a vaporiser unit in fluid communication with the reservoir. The vaporiser unit comprises: a body that defines a lumen that passes along the length of the body, the lumen comprising a first end and a second end, wherein the first end receives liquid decontaminant from the reservoir; and a heating element that is configured to deliver sufficient thermal energy to effect rapid boiling of the liquid decontaminant within the lumen so that it exits the lumen via an exit port at the second end of the lumen as a vapour. The exit port is configured to deliver the vapour into a flow of a non-heated carrier gas, thereby facilitating distribution of the decontaminant vapour within the enclosed space. The invention also relates to a method for decontaminating surfaces within an enclosed space.

  • Publication number: 20220308680
    Abstract: Method, apparatus, and systems for roll angle estimation for an input/gesture device (IGD) are disclosed. The method includes estimating a first axis vector of the input/gesture device (IGD) relative to the surface of the mobile device (MD), as a first frame of reference, using readings from a first type of sensor; and estimating the first axis vector of the IDG relative to a different, second frame of reference using a gyroscope integration of readings from the 3-axis gyroscope. The method further includes aligning the first axis vector of the IDG in the first frame of reference with the first axis vector of the IDG in the second frame of reference; minimizing a change in the alignment of the first axis vectors between the first frame of reference and the second frame of reference; and determining the roll angle of the IDG relative to the surface of the MD.
