  • Patent number: 11182540
    Abstract: An electronic input document presented on a display of a client is examined to identify a text unit in the electronic input document and contextual information about the input document. A set of annotations for the text unit and the input document are determined responsive to the contextual information for the text unit. Responsive to the set of annotations, a set of candidate texts are identified from a corpus of documents that can replace the text unit. The candidate texts are evaluated in the set of candidate texts to identify a subset of the set of candidate texts as a set of replacement texts for the text unit. At least one replacement text from the set of replacement texts is presented on the display of the client.

  • Publication number: 20210318272
    Abstract: A system and method for utilizing a carbide-derived carbon (CDC) fiber in solid-phase micro extraction. Optically pumping the carbide-derived carbon (CDC) fiber, as compared to using thermal desorption, enhances performance of the system. CDC provides for a broad based sorbent that is insensitive to high humidity. Optical pumping may be done axially or radially on a modified gas chromatography needle. In some cases, staged, or pulsed, optical pumping is used to drive off solvent or other lower boiling compounds first and then the desorption of the remaining analytes is cleaner and the instrumentation is less likely to be overloaded.

  • Publication number: 20210318916
    Abstract: One or more computing devices, systems, and/or methods are provided. Event information associated with a plurality of events may be identified. The plurality of events may be associated with first entities corresponding to a first entity type and second entities associated with a second entity type. A first network profile associated with the first entities and the second entities may be generated based upon the event information. An iterative process may be performed to identify a coalition network associated with fraudulent activity. The iterative process may include analyzing the first network profile to identify a first set of entities, of the first entities, that are related to an entity of the second entities, and/or analyzing the first network profile to identify a second set of entities, of the second entities, that are related to the first set of entities. Multiple iterations may be performed to identify the coalition network.

  • Publication number: 20210301737
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine system includes an engine component comprising ceramic matrix composite materials, at least one control system configured to control at least a temperature of the engine component, and a controller. The controller includes a degradation map stored therein. The degradation map includes degradation fields, each field defined by a unique range of temperatures and stresses of the component and correlated to different types of degradation of the component. The controller is configured to determine a first temperature and stress of the component and a first field based on the first temperature and stress, determine a second field different from the first and a second temperature and stress that would locate the component in the second field, and instruct the control system to change the temperature of the component from the first to the second temperature to locate the component in the second field.

  • Publication number: 20210297579
    Abstract: The present embodiments relate to managing the operation of devices within a home or other property based upon received image data. According to certain aspects, a controller within the home may receive, with customer permission or consent, image data from image sensors disposed throughout the home. The controller may analyze the image data in combination with profile data for individuals associated with the home to determine that a certain individual is indicated in the image data. The controller may further determine an action to facilitate based upon the individual being detected in a certain location of the property, and may direct smart devices to perform that action. As a result, the present embodiments may facilitate providing occupant-location based (or occupant-presence or preference based) functionality, functions, or services, and/or directing operations of smart devices located about a property based upon occupant location, presence, preferences, and/or activities at the property.

  • Patent number: 11117838
    Abstract: A method of making a fiber preform for ceramic matrix composite (CMC) fabrication that utilizes a fugitive binder and a machining step is described. The method includes, according to one embodiment, laying up a plurality of plies to form a stack, where each ply comprises an arrangement of fibers. The stack is infiltrated with a polymer at an elevated temperature to form an infiltrated stack that is cooled to form a rigid preform. The rigid fiber preform is machined to have a predetermined shape, such that a machined fiber preform is formed. A composite assembly including the machined fiber preform is formed and then the composite assembly is heated at a sufficient temperature to pyrolyze the polymer. Thus, a porous preform of a predetermined geometry is formed for further processing into a CMC.
