  • Publication number: 20190235920
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method is disclosed. The method comprises receiving a notification from a job scheduler that an execution time for a job registered with the job scheduler is at or before a first time being a current time. The method also comprises identifying, in response to receiving the notification, at least one task from a task data structure with a target runtime that is at or before the first time. The task data structure stores task data for one or more tasks received from one or more client computers, and the task data associates each of the one or more tasks with a target runtime. The method further comprises initiating execution for each of the at least one task and determining whether there is a specific task from the task data structure with a specific target runtime after the first time.

  • Publication number: 20190214140
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to the field of diagnostics, specifically, to a method of identifying progressing multiple sclerosis (MS) in a subject. At least one performance parameter is determined from a dataset of activity measurements obtained from the subject using a mobile device, and the performance parameter is compared to a reference, whereby a subject with progressing MS will be identified. Also disclosed is a method of recommending an anti-CD20 antibody therapy against MS that includes the steps just mentioned and the further step of recommending the anti-CD20 antibody therapy if the subject suffers from progressing MS. Also disclosed is a mobile device having a processor, at least one sensor and a database as well as software which is tangibly embedded to the device and, when running on said device, carries out the method of this disclosure as well as the use of such a device for identifying a subject suffering from progressing MS.

  • Publication number: 20190210052
    Abstract: A repeatable manufacturing process uses a printer to deposits liquid for each product carried by a substrate to form respective thin films. The liquid is dried, cured or otherwise processed to form from the liquid a permanent layer of each respective product. To perform printing, each newly-introduced substrate is roughly mechanically aligned, with an optical system detecting sub-millimeter misalignment, and with software correcting for misalignment. Rendering of adjusted data is performed such that nozzles are variously assigned dependent on misalignment to deposit droplets in a regulated manner, to ensure precise deposition of liquid for each given area of the substrate. For example, applied to the manufacture of flat panel displays, software ensures that exactly the right amount of liquid is deposited for each “pixel” of the display, to minimize likelihood of visible discrepancies in the resultant display.

  • Patent number: 10345208
    Abstract: A system and method for applying force to at least one device by setting a target position of a pin with respect to the device, setting a target force that the pin will apply to the device, moving the pin towards the device, stopping the movement of the pin when the first of a force exerted on the device by the pin substantially equals the target force, or a position of the pin substantially equals the target position happens, and modifying the position of the pin to maintain the force of the pin on the device at substantially constant.

  • Publication number: 20190200915
    Abstract: A method for assessing a cognition and movement disease or disorder in a subject suspected to suffer therefrom. A cognition and/or fine motoric activity parameter is determined from a dataset of activity measurements obtained from the subject using a mobile device. The determined activity parameter is compared to a reference, and the cognition and movement disease or disorder is assessed. Also disclosed is a method for identifying whether a subject will benefit from a therapy for a cognition and movement disease or disorder. The steps just described are performed along with the step of identifying the subject as one who benefits from the therapy if the cognition and movement disease or disorder is assessed. Also disclosed is a mobile device comprising a processor, at least one sensor, a database and software which is tangibly embedded in said device and, when running on said device, carries out the disclosed methods.

  • Patent number: 10293500
    Abstract: An attachment for use with a conventional barber's clipper or trimmer includes a base plate having a front edge, a rear edge and a pair of opposing side edges. Extending from the front edge of the base plate is at least one central tooth disposed between and spaced from a pair of outer teeth. In at least one embodiment, the central tooth is wider than the outer tooth to create a unique hairstyle. Formed between each outer tooth and the central tooth is a channel that extends to the clipper's cutting blade. Extending from a distal end of each tooth are a pair of elongated, spaced tines that form a U-shaped slot for collecting and bundling a significant portion of hair to isolate it from the cutting blade.
