  • Patent number: 10789602
    Abstract: The present invention describes a community based computerized method and system which automatically gathers, acquires and collects students' usage data in a dynamic knowledge base as they perform their routine learning assignments from any educational source (e.g. printed textbooks, e-textbook etc.), for the purpose of assessing their achievements, competencies, areas of interest, preferences and requirements, and then providing automatically generated students-related information and services which are based on this knowledge, such as custom study guides, preparation plans for exams and academic skills assessment reports. The system also provides insights, trends and behavioral patterns within students' groups, which are identified and deduced from actual activities of users, such as learning habits, areas of interest, and demand for new and existing educational learning sources.

  • Patent number: 10731149
    Abstract: The present invention, SMASH (Short Multiply Aggregated Sequence Homologies), is a technique designed to pack multiple independent mappings into every read. Specifically, the invention relates to a composition comprising a first mixture of different chimeric genomic nucleic acid fragments, wherein each different fragment in the mixture comprises randomly ligated DNA segments, wherein each DNA segment in the fragment is a nucleic acid molecule at least 27 base pairs in length resulting from random fragmentation of a single genome. The invention also relates to methods for generating said composition and use of said composition to obtain genomic information, for example, copy number variation.

  • Patent number: 10713201
    Abstract: For example, an MA USB host of an MA USB PAL may be configured to process a request message from a USBDI of a USB host for a real time data transfer to be delivered between the USB host and a USB device EP; based on the request message, transmit at least one real time transfer request to an MA USB device of the MA USB PAL, a header of the real time transfer request including a request ID field to identify the real time data transfer, and a delivery time field to indicate a delivery time to complete delivery of the real time data transfer; and, based on a determination that the real time data transfer is not to be completed by the delivery time, send a response to the USBDI, the response including an error indication to indicate failure of the real time data transfer.

  • Patent number: 10667831
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are ultrasonic probes and systems incorporating the probes. The probes are configured to produce an ultrasonic therapy exposure that, when applied to a kidney stone, will exert an acoustic radiation force sufficient to produce ultrasonic propulsion. Unlike previous probes configured to produce ultrasonic propulsion, however, the disclosed probes are engineered to produce a relatively large (both wide and long) therapy region effective to produce ultrasonic propulsion. This large therapy region allows the probe to move a plurality of kidney stones (or fragments from lithotripsy) in parallel, thereby providing the user the ability to clear several stones from an area simultaneously. This “broadly focused” probe is, in certain embodiments, combined in a single handheld unit with a typical ultrasound imaging probe to produce real-time imaging. Methods of using the probes and systems to move kidney stones are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20200150978
    Abstract: A method for operating a media agnostic universal serial bus (MAUSB) device includes a compute device having a link connection manager, a USB manager, and a state manager. The compute device establishes a link with a MAUSB device and a session with the MAUSB device. Subsequently to receipt of a sleep command for the compute device, the compute device transitions to a sleep state and terminates the link with the MAUSB device while keeping intact the session with the MAUSB device. The compute device transitions back to an active state in response to receipt of a wake command for the compute device. The compute device sends a wake request to the MAUSB device. If the MAUSB device responds to the wake request with an acceptance, then the compute device reestablishes the previous session with the MAUSB device. If instead an error is received, the compute device terminates the session.

  • Patent number: 10630767
    Abstract: A customer of a computing resource service provider submits a request to a virtual computer system service to instantiate a virtual computer system. In response to the request, the service obtains physical network information in order to identify any hardware groupings that may be used, at a later time, to provision one or more data storage volumes that may be associated with the virtual computer system. The service assigns a score to each of these hardware groupings based at least in part on the available capacity for provisioning of these data storage volumes. Based at least in part on these assigned scores, the virtual computer system service selects a hardware grouping and instantiates the virtual computer system within the selected hardware grouping.

  • Patent number: 10616126
    Abstract: Scheduling of packets to be forwarded onto DOCSIS downstream channels as part of a Virtual Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP). A packet to be forwarded onto a DOCSIS downstream channel is enqueued in a service flow queue. The packets stored in the service flow queue are associated with a single service flow. A request is propagated up a hierarchy of schedule elements to a scheduler process to schedule the packet for delivery. The scheduler process determines a grant of how much traffic to offer the DOCSIS downstream channel. The grant determined for the DOCSIS downstream channel may be expressed in units of symbols rather than in bytes. The scheduler process extends a particular grant to the service flow queue by translating symbols in the grant for the service flow queue which issued the request.

  • Patent number: 10528508
    Abstract: Technologies for improving enumeration of universal serial bus (USB) devices over a media agnostic USB (MAUSB) connection are disclosed. In the illustrative embodiment, an MAUSB device may send USB configuration data to a host compute device. The host compute device may then perform a virtual enumeration of the USB devices based on the USB configuration data without necessarily communicating with the USB devices. The MAUSB device may perform an enumeration of the USB devices on behalf of the host compute devices without necessarily communicating with the host compute device. The USB devices may not be aware or have any indication that the USB device is not communicating with the host compute device during the enumeration process. Such an approach may improve the latency of USB enumeration over an MAUSB connection.

  • Publication number: 20190377297
    Abstract: Certain examples described herein relate to splice detection. In certain cases, a splice is detected in a web being conveyed towards a transfer member of the printing system. In certain cases, a print frame is identified from a sequence of pending print frames using successive repeat lengths of the sequence and a distance of the splice from the transfer member. The identified print frame is to be transferred from the transfer member across the splice. In certain cases, writing of the identified print frame onto a photo-imaging plate of the printing system is deferred. In certain examples, the web is disengaged from the transfer member following transfer of an image of a print frame preceding the identified print frame. The web is re-engaged with the transfer member so as to transfer an image of the identified print frame to the web from the transfer member after the splice is conveyed beyond the transfer member.

  • Publication number: 20190373537
    Abstract: Embodiments of methods for scanning in a directive multi-gigabit network are generally described herein. An apparatus of a station may include processing circuitry configured to decode a sector sweep beacon received from an access point, encode for transmission a sector sweep feedback message to include a beam refinement protocol (BRP) request, and encode for transmission BRP responses to BRP signaling received from the access point. The processing circuitry may be further configured to decode a link margin feedback signal received from the access point to determine an access point link margin, measure signal information associated with the link margin feedback signal to determine a received link margin measurement, and encode signaling for association with the access point based on the access point link quality and the receive link quality.
