  • Publication number: 20230033354
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to context based saving of content. A set of conditions for automatically saving content for a user currently engaged with savable content can be received. A current context of the user currently engaged with savable content can be determined. The current context of the user can be compared to the set of conditions to determine whether automatically saving the savable content should be completed. The savable content can be automatically saved in response to determining that automatically saving the savable content should be completed.

  • Patent number: 11564384
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provides a systems and methods for pest control. The system detects one or more pests based on receiving sensor data from one or more sensors associated with a predefined location. The system analyzes the sensor data with cognitive machine learning based on the detected pests. The system generates a treatment recommendation report based on the analysis and outputs the treatment recommendation report.

  • Patent number: 11565380
    Abstract: A paint-line hook for vehicle shocks includes a tube, an eye fixed to the tube, and a bracket fixed to the tube below the eye. The tube has a bottom end and a bore extending through the bottom end. The bracket defines a channel configured to engage a mount of a vehicle shock. A latch is rotatably supported by the tube. The tube includes a slot in communication with the bore. The latch extends through the slot and has a handle exterior to the slot and an end positioned to engage a threaded shaft of a vehicle shock in the bore. A vehicle shock may be retained in the tube and the tube acts as a paint shield during paint application to the vehicle shock.

  • Patent number: 11562568
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, a computer program product, and a computer system for dynamically creating a composition reference video to support a user activity. In response to that a user selects a reference video for performing an activity, the computer system identifies a search query of a reference video. The computer system identifies personalized parameters of the user, based on a knowledge corpus user preferences of performing activities, and the search query. The computer system identifies appropriate videos and video transcripts in an online video repository and identifies textual contents through document and text search, based on a prediction about how the user is to perform the activity. The computer system draws series of images based on the textual contents. The computer system normalizes contents from the appropriate videos and the series of images and normalizes voices in the contents from the appropriate videos.

  • Publication number: 20230015649
    Abstract: The present invention provides improved and/or shortened methods for expanding TILs and producing therapeutic populations of TILs, including novel methods for expanding TIL populations in a closed system that lead to improved efficacy, improved phenotype, and increased metabolic health of the TILs in a shorter time period, while allowing for reduced microbial contamination as well as decreased costs. Such TILs find use in therapeutic treatment regimens.

  • Patent number: 11521220
    Abstract: In an approach for monitoring data usage in an IoT network, a processor identifies a set of IoT devices. A processor collects a set of baseline readings for the set of IoT devices. A processor collects a set of IoT data from the set of IoT devices as a user answers a survey question. A processor compares the set of baseline readings to the set of IoT data. A processor derives an emotional state of the user while answering the survey question. A processor builds a CART model using the set of baseline readings, the set of IoT data, and a set of survey data. A processor applies the emotional state as a weight to the CART model. A processor outputs the weighted CART model.
