  • Publication number: 20200375270
    Abstract: Active fabrics can be created by combining active and passive materials. Active materials with shape memory or other actuation characteristics can generate compression or dynamic fit, and the level of compression and/or change in fit can be determined by setting a knit index, wire diameter, and garment ease, or fit in relation to the body. Maximum compression can be set not only by varying physical properties of the knit structure but by built-in circuit breaking technologies, or by segmentation and control of the garment by a controller. In some embodiments, additive manufacturing can be combined with traditional textile equipment (e.g., circular knitting machine). Uniquely functional or active textiles can be made from additively manufactured, heterogeneous filaments. Yarn-like filament with varying properties (such as elasticity, stiffness, conductivity, activation, or surface properties) can be additively manufactured.

  • Patent number: 10855561
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a method is provided that includes one or more of the following features including creating service request outcome models each being based on a service request outcome. A service request entered using natural language can be received and tokenized. A binary matrix can be created from the tokenized service request, and a service request outcome model can be identified based on the binary matrix. The service request outcome model can be used to identify a service request category, a service request predicted resolution, and a service request diagnostic. A confidence value can be calculated based on the service request predicted resolution. The service request category, the service request predicted resolution, and the service request diagnostic can be transmitted to an automated service request resolution system to resolve the service request.

  • Patent number: 10845246
    Abstract: A cooking engagement system and methods therefore are provided. The system includes a cooktop appliance and an interactive assembly positioned above the cooktop appliance. The interactive assembly includes an image monitor that presents various images and information to a user, e.g., recipes. The system includes an infrared sensor for detecting operation of the cooktop appliance. When the infrared sensor senses a temperature level that exceeds a threshold, a controller communicatively coupled thereto activates an air handler to move or motivate an airflow across or about the image monitor. In this way, the image monitor may be cooled and condensation is prevented from forming on the imaging surface of the image monitor.
