  • Patent number: 11899683
    Abstract: A digital asset management system (DAMS) provides an integrated user experience for the rapid and facile manipulation of a users digital assets in an online environment. Spanning the spectrum of digital assets, the DAMS system set forth herein enables users to tag, fitter, collect, and show such digital assets in a manner which requires preferably minimal user interaction in order to achieve digital asset management and exhibition. Sharing among friends and family becomes much easier and incoming digital assets may be automatically segregated according to user choices or history to enable easier management of such assets. Recognition of relationships, characteristics, features, and the like between different assets may occur automatically and develop an ongoing fashion to enable association of such similar assets into “collections” or the like.

  • Patent number: 11880778
    Abstract: A system for identifying information in high dimensional, low latency streaming data having dynamically evolving data patterns. The system processes, continuously and in real-time, the streaming data. Processing includes filtering the data based on event data to identify diagnostic data points by comparing the event data with an experimental design matrix and performing a modeling operation using the identified diagnostic data points in order to identify efficiently any current and emerging patterns of relationships between at least one outcome variable and predictor variables. The at least one a-priori, pre-designed experimental design matrix is generated based on combinations of the predictor variables and at least one outcome variable. The experimental design matrix is also generated based on at least one of main effects, limitations, constraints, and interaction effects of the predictor variables and combinations.

  • Publication number: 20230414291
    Abstract: Systems, computer-implemented methods, and computer program products for planning of a cutting boundary for removal of a diseased region of an anatomy, such as a bone tumor. A cutting surface is placed relative to the diseased region in a virtual model. An optimization algorithm specifies an optimization criterion that minimizes an amount of healthy region to be removed by the cutting surface and initializes candidate solutions to influence characteristics of the cutting surface. The optimization algorithm identifies a candidate solution that satisfies the optimization criterion and modifies characteristics of the cutting surface based on the identified candidate solution. The cutting boundary is defined relative to diseased region in the virtual model based on the modified cutting surface. The cutting boundary can be registered to the anatomy for constraining operation of a surgical tool in response to interaction of the surgical tool with the registered cutting boundary.

  • Patent number: 11839439
    Abstract: Systems, devices and methods are provided in which an instrument can translate along an insertion axis. Rather than relying primarily on a robotic arm for instrument insertion, the instruments described herein have novel instrument based insertion architectures that allow portions of the instruments themselves to translate along an insertion axis. For example, an instrument can comprise a shaft, an end effector on a distal end of the shaft, and a handle coupled to the shaft. The architecture of the instrument allows the shaft to translate relative to the handle along an axis of insertion. The translation of the shaft does not interfere with other functions of the instrument, such as end effector actuation.

  • Publication number: 20230376619
    Abstract: A device that encapsulates functions necessary to sanitize an electronic system after detecting tampering or when user zeroization occurs. The device includes a FPGA, sensors, external tamper sensors, a battery, interfaces or discrete signals required to execute sanitization of hard drives, flash, registers, etc. The device issues a sanitization response through interface commands Manual sanitization (zeroization) can be achieved two ways, locally or through a remote zeroize button/switch/discrete. The sanitization response is activated through monitoring the tamper sensors. The sanitization response will destroy stored data and encryption keys before they can be compromised. The sanitization response could produce a notification that an event has occurred. The system can provide data protection without main line or standby power. Sensors could include, chassis intrusion switches, motion detectors, radiation sensors, light sensors, temperature sensors, magnetic sensors, or other external inputs.

  • Publication number: 20230363837
    Abstract: An image-guided robotic intervention system (“IGRIS”) may be used to perform medical procedures on patients. IGRIS provides a real-time view of patient anatomy, as well as an intended target or targets for the procedures, software that allows a user to plan an approach or trajectory path using either the image or the robotic device, software that allows a user to convert a series of 2D images into a 3D volume, and localizes the 3D volume with respect to real-time images during the procedure. IGRIS may include sensors to estimate pose of the imaging device relative to the patient to improve the performance of that software with respect to runtime, robustness, and accuracy.

  • Publication number: 20230358449
    Abstract: A controller for a refrigeration system includes a processing circuit having one or more processors and memory. The processing circuit is configured to calculate a superheat of a gas refrigerant exiting a first side of a subcooler based on a measured temperature and a measured pressure of the gas refrigerant and compare the calculated superheat to a superheat threshold. In response to a determination that the calculated superheat is less than the superheat threshold, the processing circuit closes an expansion valve to restrict a flow of the gas refrigerant through a second side of the subcooler. In response to a determination that the calculated superheat is equal to or greater than the superheat threshold, the processing circuit operates the expansion valve to drive a temperature of a subcooled liquid refrigerant exiting the second side of the subcooler to a subcooled liquid temperature setpoint.
