  • Patent number: 11962576
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide various methods relating to enclaves. For instance, a method of authentication for an enclave entity with a second entity may include receiving, by one or more processors of a host computing device of the enclave entity, a request and an assertion of identity for the second entity, the assertion including identity information for the second identity; using an assertion verifier of the enclave entity to determine whether the assertion is valid; when the assertion is valid, extracting the identity information; authenticating the second entity using an access control list for the enclave entity to determine whether the identity information meets expectations of the access control list; when the identity information meets the expectations of the access control list, completing the request.

  • Patent number: 11962978
    Abstract: A remote-control unit (10) is adapted for sending a control signal with instructions as an acoustic signal for controlling a hearing assistive device (20). A calibration method comprises outputting tone frequencies applied by the control signal, receiving the output tone frequencies and compare tone frequency levels relatively to a reference, adjusting relative volumes of the tone frequencies applied by the control signal in dependence of the comparison, and storing the adjusted relative volumes of the tone frequencies for use when sending a control signal with instructions as acoustic signals.

  • Publication number: 20240119609
    Abstract: A distributed imaging system for augmented reality devices is disclosed. The system includes a computing module in communication with a plurality of spatially distributed sensing devices. The computing module is configured to process input images from the sensing devices based on performing a local feature matching computation to generate corresponding first output images. The computing module is further configured to process the input images based on performing an optical flow correspondence computation to generate corresponding second output images. The computing module is further configured to computationally combine first and second output images to generate third output images.

  • Publication number: 20240120692
    Abstract: A faceplate assembly may include a faceplate having an opening configured to receive an electrical device insert, and an adapter that is disposed between the faceplate and a structure. The adapter may abut a surface of the structure. The one or more biasing members may apply forces against the faceplate that may cause the faceplate to be biased outward relative to the surface of the structure.

  • Publication number: 20240102003
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes oligonucleotide-tethered nucleotides, methods of making them, and methods of using them. The oligonucleotide-tethered nucleotides comprise, in some embodiments, a nucleotide linked to an oligonucleotide of from about 3 to about 100 nucleotides in length. These oligonucleotide-tethered nucleotides can be used to label a plurality of different types of nucleic acids in a plurality of different situations with a known oligonucleotide, which can serve as a barcode in some embodiments. The resulting oligonucleotide-labeled nucleic acids oligo-nucleotides can be used in a variety of nucleic acid sequencing methods.

  • Publication number: 20240091066
    Abstract: A system for incising tissue with a plasma comprises an elongate electrode configured to incise the tissue along a tissue incision profile and a tissue contact element configured to shape the tissue, which comprises one or more of a channel or a protrusion to form one or more of a corresponding protrusion or indentation in a tissue surface while the tissue is incised with the electrode along the incision profile. The tissue contact element shapes the tissue sufficiently to allow the tissue to form one or more complimentary features along the incision profile when the tissue relaxes to a free-standing configuration with removal of the tissue contact element. The complementary features may be incised into the tissue to provide increased mechanical stability between the separated tissue regions, such as with nominally interlocking protrusion(s) and indentation(s).
