  • Publication number: 20240185122
    Abstract: A method for training a fault probability model using warranty claim data includes obtaining, by a processing circuit, a first data set for failed building devices based on warranty claim data associated with the building devices; receiving, by the processing circuit, design change data associated with the building devices and determining a design change date based on the design change data; comparing, by the processing circuit, a manufacturing date for each of the failed building devices with the design change date; removing, by the processing circuit, any building devices from the first data set in response to the manufacturing date preceding the design change date to create an updated first data set; generating, by the processing circuit, a training data set comprising the updated first data set; and training, by the processing circuit, a fault probability model using the training data set to produce a trained model.

  • Patent number: 11916518
    Abstract: Examples provide methods and apparatus for controlling a DC bias current in an RF amplifier. In one example where the RF amplifier is implemented on an amplifier die, a reference voltage is produced across a reference resistor implemented on the amplifier die, the DC bias current is measured, and a current controller, which is implemented on a controller die that is separate from the amplifier die, operates a feedback loop using the reference voltage to control a level of the DC bias current.

  • Patent number: 10958513
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for content streaming with bandwidth management. Prior to shipment of a streaming device, partial content and remaining content from content may be generated. The partial content may be configured to be unusable for presentation at the streaming device without at least a portion of the remaining content, and the remaining content may be configured to be unusable for presentation at the streaming device without at least a portion of the partial content. The partial content may be combinable with the remaining content by the streaming device to form a presentable file corresponding to the first content. The partial content may have a filename extension indicating that an associated media file includes the partial content, and the associated media file is different from the presentable file. The partial content on the streaming device may be stored prior to the shipment of the streaming device.

  • Patent number: 10381016
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer readable media for altering an audio output are provided. In some embodiments, the system may change the original frequency content of an audio data file to a second frequency content so that a recorded audio track will sound as if a different person had recorded it when it is played back. In other embodiments, the system may receive an audio data file and a voice signature, and it may apply the voice signature to the audio data file to alter the audio output of the audio data file. In that instance, the audio data file may be a textual representation of a recorded audio data file.

  • Patent number: 10108612
    Abstract: A mobile electronic device has a touch sensitive screen and an accelerometer. A translator is to translate a word or phrase that is in a first human language and that is entered via a first virtual keyboard displayed on the touch sensitive screen, into a second human language. A translator is to cause the touch sensitive screen to display the translated word or phrase and a second virtual keyboard having characters in the second human language, in response to the accelerometer detecting a change in the physical orientation of the device or movement of the device. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 9876892
    Abstract: Methods and systems for powering-off a wireless communication device from a linked device are provided. A device can transmit a wireless communication signal to a linked device to instruct the linked device to power-off. In this manner, the user need only turn off one device manually which results in all linked devices being powered off. This process can be initiated by a user through a device directly linked with the device to be powered-off or through a device that is indirectly connected, through one or more wireless communication networks, with the device to be powered-off. This process can also be automatically initiated by a device when a set of predetermined conditions exist. Once instructed to do so, a device can initiate a predetermined power-off process which can involve terminating any ongoing functions and turning off various subsystems. In accordance with the present invention, a user can initiate a power-off of all the devices on a wireless communication network through a single device.

  • Patent number: 9645789
    Abstract: Approaches are described for securely sending, receiving, or otherwise processing communications between electronic devices. A communication can be received at a computing device (such as a mobile phone). The communication can include information captured about a person initiating the communication such as an image of the user, voice data of the user, typing pattern information of the user, or any other information that can be used to identify the user generating the communication. The information can be compared against profile data (e.g., contact information such as a phone number or name of the sender) associated with or otherwise stored for an indicated sender of the communication to generate a confidence value, where the confidence value can be used to indicate that the person initiating the communication is the indicated sender.

  • Patent number: 9456298
    Abstract: During an ongoing wireless telephone call communication session between a pair of mobile devices, a local device responds to its user's activation of a virtual or actual button or key, or its user's verbal command, by automatically sending an over the air message (e.g., a SMS or text message or other network communication message) to the remote device. The message requests location information of the remote device. Upon obtaining location information from the remote device, a location of the remote device is automatically displayed on the local device. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 9412416
    Abstract: Media can be presented based on location associated with presentation of media (e.g., physical location of a device that is to present media). Presentation of media can be effectively controlled in order to automatically present a first media content (e.g., a list of songs, an album) in accordance with a first set of media presentation attributes or parameters (e.g., volume associated with presentation of audible media) at a first location, while a second media content is automatically presented in accordance with a second set of media presentation attributes or parameters when the current location is changed to a second location.
