  • Patent number: 11850181
    Abstract: A method for promoting contraception by placing a contraceptive device within a uterus without blocking fallopian tubes may involve advancing a distal end of a delivery device through a cervix, advancing the contraceptive device comprising an elongate shape memory member out of the distal end of the delivery device and into the uterus, and limiting inferior migration of the contraceptive device within the uterus. Inferior migration may be limited by allowing the contraceptive device to assume a shape, when subjected to pressure that tends to cause a downward migration of the device within the uterus, in which an expandable middle portion of the device is expanded to contact the inner wall of the uterus and thus limit the downward migration of the device.

  • Publication number: 20230394325
    Abstract: In an approach for improved artificial intelligence planning in an automated machine learning pipeline, a processor formulates an artificial intelligence planning problem. A processor receives a pre-defined stopping criterion for generating one or more plans for the artificial intelligence planning problem. A processor generates the one or more plans by executing a planning algorithm. A processor reformulates the artificial intelligence planning problem into a new artificial intelligence planning problem by forbidding plans that correspond to super-sets of the one or more plans. A processor generates one or more new plans based on the reformulation until the pre-defined stopping criterion is reached.
