  • Patent number: 10209363
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to a system for implementing a restricted-operation region. The system includes an instruction development module configured to be utilized in the development of a set of instructions that implement an operation policy of the restricted-operation region. The set of instructions is configured to, when interpreted, implement the operation policy by controlling at least one function of a vehicle that attempts to operate within the restricted-operation region. The system further includes a first transmitter configured to transmit the set of instructions to the vehicle, wherein a processor of the vehicle is configured to interpret the set of instructions based at least in part on a determination that the vehicle is attempting to operate within the restricted-operation region.

  • Publication number: 20180366143
    Abstract: Monitoring and analysis of a user's speech to detect symptoms of a mental health disorder by continuously monitoring a user's speech in real-time to generate audio data based, transcribing the audio data to text and analyzing the text of the audio data to determine a sentiment of the audio data is disclosed. A trained machine learning model may be applied to correlate the text and the determined sentiment to clinical information associated with symptoms of a mental health disorder to determine whether the symptoms are a symptom event. The initial determination may be transmitted to a second device to determine (and/or verify) whether or not the symptom event was falsely recognized.
