  • Publication number: 20190213568
    Abstract: A system for verifying a price associated with an item in a retail environment includes a price tag having an optical member that includes an optical characteristic that modifies an amount of optical energy that leaves the optical member relative to an amount of optical energy received by the optical member, and a price tag holder including an optical sensor having an emitter and a detector. The emitter is positioned to emit optical energy onto the optical member and the detector is positioned to receive optical energy leaving the optical member. A computing device in operable communication with the optical sensor is operative to determine whether the price tag is accurate based upon a comparison between the amount of optical energy received by the detector and the amount of optical energy emitted by the emitter.

  • Patent number: 10344297
    Abstract: A protein conferring resistance to Fusarium Head Blight disease (FHB) is described, along with the DNA sequence of the corresponding gene and mRNA copy (cDNA). The cDNA of Fhb1 gene can be used to produce genetically-modified plants having increased resistance to FHB, particularly in wheat, barley and other plants affected by the disease. The protein has antifungal properties and inhibits fungal growth, thereby providing a means for reducing DON toxin in grains. Conserved functional domains are identified in the protein. Genetically-modified plants having increased resistance FHB are also described, along with methods for producing such genetically-modified plants.

  • Publication number: 20190197443
    Abstract: A system includes one or more server hardware computing devices communicatively coupled to a network. The one or more server hardware computing devices include one or more processors and memory storing specific computer-executable instructions that, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the system to receive a first request to calculate a trust score for a user associated with a user account of an online proctored examination platform. The trust score represents results of a risk analysis of the user. The instructions cause the system to obtain internal data of the online proctored examination platform, the internal data describing usage of the online proctored examination platform by the user, perform the risk analysis using at least the internal data to produce the trust score, associate the trust score with the user account, and perform an action based on the trust score.

  • Publication number: 20190190961
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a device in a network observes traffic between a client and a server for an encrypted session. The device makes a determination that a server certificate should be obtained from the server. The device, based on the determination, sends a handshake probe to the server. The device extracts server certificate information from a handshake response from the server that the server sent in response to the handshake probe. The device uses the extracted server certificate information to analyze the traffic between the client and the server.

  • Patent number: 10327018
    Abstract: An improved approach to tracking media playback includes tracking logic that is based on abandonment indicators. An abandonment indicator is detected during media playback, such as a user interaction with a computing device that is detected prior to ceasing playback of the media content. Tracking messages are reduced, suppressed, or suspended until an abandonment indicator is detected. After an abandonment indicator is detected, the system quickens, releases, or restart sending tracking messages to a collection system.
