  • Publication number: 20190279256
    Abstract: A real-time or non-real-time communication from a customer communication endpoint is received. A work item is generated that represents the real-time or non-real-time communication. For example, a real-time voice communication is received and tracked in a contact center as a work item. First data from an external data service provider (DSP) is consumed. For example, the first data is received from an Experian® data service. The first data is natively provided by the external DSP in a first format. For example, the first format may be in Extended Markup Language (XML). The first data is converted into second data in a second format for use in a contact center. The second data in the second format is used to: 1) select a first offer from multiple offers; and 2) route the work item and the first selected offer to a communication element (e.g., an agent communication endpoint).

  • Patent number: 10338029
    Abstract: A system and method for monitoring a subject are presented. The system includes a sensing device including at least one magnetic source to generate a magnetic field and an array of magnetic sensors disposed within the magnetic field. The sensor array obtains a plurality of magnetic field measurements at a plurality of locations along a vessel carrying a fluid including one or more magnetic particles. Further, the system includes a processing subsystem communicatively coupled to the sensing device, where the processing subsystem determines variations in the measurements caused by magnetization-relaxation of the magnetic particles based on a coupled model that defines behavior of the fluid in the varying magnetic field based on principles of magnetization-relaxation, bulk motion of the magnetic particles towards a determined gradient of the magnetic field, magnetostatics, and conservation of momentum. The processing subsystem estimates values of one or more desired parameters based on the determined variations.

  • Patent number: 10311585
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to methods and a mechanism for manipulating images generated by radiotherapy machines used in radiation diagnostic and treatment applications. In one embodiment, a method is provided for intelligent automatic propagation of manual or automatic contouring across linked (e.g., registered) images and image data sets by acquiring one or more images of one or more image data sets; determining the correlation between the images with respect to identified structures; and generating a deformation map that establishes a correspondence for each point in the source image with a point in the target image. Subsequently, the intelligent propagation mechanism applies this deformation map individually to each structure of the source image and propagates the deformed structure to the target image.

  • Patent number: 10291907
    Abstract: A multi-view display device, including a controller that is operable to receive from a positioning device, position information representing positions of a left eye and a right eye of a viewer relative to the multi-view display. The viewer is able to activate a channel selection mode in which the multiview display simultaneously projects different stereoscopic channels on the side of his last position before starting the new mode, so he can see other channels by changing his head position. The viewer selects then a desired channel by which it ends the channel selection mode and switches the display to a mode where only one channel is stereoscopically displayed at a time.
