  • Patent number: 10721268
    Abstract: In various embodiments, systems, methods, and techniques are disclosed for generating a collection of clusters of related data from a seed. Seeds may be generated based on seed generation strategies or rules. Clusters may be generated by, for example, retrieving a seed, adding the seed to a first cluster, retrieving a clustering strategy or rules, and adding related data and/or data entities to the cluster based on the clustering strategy. Various cluster scores may be generated based on attributes of data in a given cluster. Further, cluster metascores may be generated based on various cluster scores associated with a cluster. Clusters may be ranked based on cluster metascores. Various embodiments may enable an analyst to discover various insights related to data clusters, and may be applicable to various tasks including, for example, tax fraud detection, beaconing malware detection, malware user-agent detection, and/or activity trend detection, among various others.

  • Patent number: 10649990
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system using at least one computing device, and computer program product are disclosed for linking an ontology provided by a content service with a word expansion ontology. The content service ontology is referred to as a category ontology and the word expansion ontology is referred to herein as a lexical ontology. A user may provide an input such as an input command to an application. The input command is processed by a natural language processing engine to derive the user's intent and to extract relevant entities embodied in the command. The NLP engine may create a composite concept set containing multiple permutations of the concepts (entities extracted) and provide the composite concept set to a concept mapper. The concept mapper applies searches an ontology map and applies one or more scoring operations to determine a best match between the composite concept set and at least one category provided by the category ontology.

  • Patent number: 10617261
    Abstract: A cutting board system that includes a cutting surface that removeably cooperates with at least one side of a base portion of the cutting board system. In a preferred aspect, the cutting surface includes a cutting layer and an indicator layer that underlies the cutting layer. Exposure of the indicator layer provides an indication as to degradation or use of the cutting layer and is indicative of desired replacement of the cutting surface. In a more preferred embodiment, respective cutting layers are associated with the generally opposite sides of the indicator layer such that the cutting surface is reversible.

  • Patent number: 10561829
    Abstract: A method of treating a sinus cavity of a subject includes advancing a distal portion of a light source through a drainage pathway of a sinus cavity and into the sinus cavity and visually observing a transdermal light emitted from the light source. A distal portion of a substantially rigid inner guide member of a balloon dilation catheter is advanced into the drainage pathway, the balloon dilation catheter including a movable shaft including a balloon that is slidably mounted on the substantially rigid inner guide member. The movable shaft and balloon are advanced distally over the substantially rigid inner guide member to place a portion of the balloon in the drainage pathway whereby the balloon is inflated.

  • Publication number: 20190376134
    Abstract: Described herein are variants of alpha-hemolysin having at least one amino acid substitution at H35G, E111N, M113A, and/or K147N in the mature, wild-type alpha-hemolysin amino acid sequence. In certain examples, the variant may have a substitution at E111S, M113S, T145S, K147S, or L1351 in the mature alpha-hemolysin amino acid sequence. The a-hemolysin variants may also include a substitution at H144A and/or a series of glycine residues spanning residues 127 to 131 of the mature, wild-type alpha hemolysin. Also provided are nanopore assemblies including the alpha-hemolysin variants, the assembly having an increased nanopore lifetime. Further, provided are variants that, in addition to providing increased lifetime, provide a decreased time-to-thread. Hence, the variants provided herein both increase nanopore lifetime and improve efficiency and accuracy of DNA sequencing reactions using nanopores comprising the variants.

  • Publication number: 20190378106
    Abstract: Systems and methods for payment processing on devices are provided. Such systems and methods enable payment processing to be completed with a peripheral device (such as a magnetic card reader) and a point of sales system, without the need for extensive developer integration. The system receives a payment charge amount from a point of sales system. The system also detects (or dynamically populates) peripheral devices that are used to capture account information. The peripheral device is a supported device type with an associated library, which includes data for properly interfacing with the peripheral device. The system provides the captured account data, a merchant ID and the amount of the charge to a payment management system. The system likewise receives a response (approve or decline) from the payment management system.

  • Publication number: 20190340654
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described which focus on targeting and mobilizing specific populations of voters who are present in every voting district, including infrequent voting moderate voters in gerrymandered highly partisan districts. Based on population segmentation modeling and data analysis, desired voters are targeted. An individualized message is developed for each targeted voter, the message presenting the voting records of that voter's (i) close friends, (ii) colleagues, (iii) family members, and (iv) other social influencers in relation to the voter's own record. The individualized message can be delivered to each targeted individual via a variety of individually addressable communication means, including but not limited to direct mail, e-mail, and digital outreach including banner, display, mobile, online application, and social media on-line advertising. Such individualized messages can successfully mobilize large numbers of the target voters.
