  • Publication number: 20220365984
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, a computer system and a computer program product dynamically identify a shared document, or a similar document. The method includes establishing a screen sharing session, where a presenter computing device transmits a first image of a shared document to a participant computing device. The method also includes generating one or more search parameters by scanning the first image using optical character recognition or object recognition in response to receiving the first image at the participant computing device. The method further includes performing a search of one or more memories accessible to the participant computing device using the generated one or more search parameters. Finally, the method includes displaying a prioritized list of search results.

  • Publication number: 20220347433
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are magnetically trackable stylets and methods thereof. A magnetically trackable stylet can include a stylet body including a core wire, a magnetic assembly, and an outer construction over the core wire and the magnetic assembly. The magnetic assembly can include one or more magnetic field-producing elements disposed alongside the core wire in a magnetically trackable distal portion of the stylet body. The outer construction, which can be an overmolded layer, a reflowed layer, a potting layer, or a shrink-wrapped layer, can be around the core wire and the magnetic assembly. The stylet body can be configured to be disposed in a lumen of a medical device such as a catheter for magnetically tracking a tip of the medical device in vivo without breakage of the stylet body due to bending-related fatigue. A method of such a magnetically trackable stylet can include a method of using the stylet.

  • Publication number: 20220331929
    Abstract: A belt sander includes a frame, a drive roller, an idler roller rotatably attached to a pivot arm, a first linear actuator configured for pivoting the pivot arm, a nose roller and a continuous abrasive belt wrapped around the drive roller, the idler roller and the nose roller. A drive motor rotates the drive roller, and an air cylinder attached to the frame and a nose roller spindle exerts a first force against the frame and a second force equal to and opposite the first force against the nose roller spindle. A first sensor senses a position of a belt edge, and a first controller receives a belt edge position signal from the first sensor and sends a command signal responsive to the position signal to the first linear actuator for expanding or contracting so as to pivot the pivot arm about a pivot point.

  • Patent number: 11422681
    Abstract: Non-limiting examples of the present disclosure describe an application command control user interface menu to facilitate user interaction between a user and a mobile application. An application command control menu is displayed on a display screen of a processing device. An input may be received into an application canvas of a launched application. The application canvas may be positioned above the application command control menu on the display screen. In response to a received input into the application canvas, a soft input keyboard application may be displayed. The soft input keyboard application may display below the application command control menu on the display screen. A selection may be received in the application command control menu. In response to the received selection, display of the application command control menu may be expanded to replace display on the soft input keyboard application on the display screen. Other examples are also described.

  • Patent number: 11416931
    Abstract: A decentralized investment fund operates according to consensus code on a shared ledger and raises capital by issuing ownership tokens on the shared ledger. The decentralized investment fund may hold digital assets in the consensus code and distribute profits to the token owners according to each owner's dividend preference. A token owner's dividend preference can include digital assets tracked by a different shared ledger, stabletoken digital assets pegged to the value of a digital asset, and cross-chain digital asset swaps. Token issuance may include a proof of accreditation requirement based on cryptographic proof on a shared ledger. The decentralized investment fund may distribute fund documents to the token holders by encrypting the document, first with a symmetric key common to all token holders, and second with an asymmetric key unique to each token holders and based on the token's holder's known public address on the shared ledger.
