  • Publication number: 20190278435
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to enabling a user of data-sharing applications executing on a computing device to indirectly exchange objects between the applications by adding objects from the applications to a journal application that manages a display area. The objects are displayed in the display area. The journal application collects metadata related to the objects and automatically curates lists of the objects according to the metadata. Curation of a list may involve moving objects into a list, merging objects, creating new objects out of content of existing objects, grouping objects according to a commonality thereof, etc. Machine learning services may be invoked to acquire additional metadata about the objects and to make curation decisions.

  • Publication number: 20190262769
    Abstract: A process is presented where a feed stream containing a hydrogen sulfide and another feed component is introduced into an absorber that the feed stream flows upward from the bottom of the absorber and contacts a liquid treatment solution, where the liquid treatment solution contains a sulfur dye catalyst. The hydrogen sulfide is absorbed into the liquid treatment solution and converted into sulfide ions. The other feed component is removed from the absorber vessel substantially free of the hydrogen sulfide and a spent treatment solution is also removed from the absorber vessel and fed to an oxidation vessel where it is contacted with an oxygen containing gas causing the sulfide ions to oxidize to thiosulfate and converting the spent sulfur dye catalyst to regenerated sulfur dye catalyst. The thiosulfate is recovered, and the regenerated sulfur dye catalyst can be recycled as part of the liquid treatment solution.
