  • Patent number: 10911947
    Abstract: Privacy centric feature analysis. A secure set of multiple mapped features is selected and provided to a mobile device. Each mapped feature maps a sharable feature to a matching criterion for an item of protected information and no combination of mapped features for a secure set are unique to an individual item of protected information. Privacy compliance instructions enable the mobile device to select a mapped feature from a received set of mapped features by identifying an item of protected information available to the mobile device which corresponds to a matching criterion found in the received set of mapped features. The sharable feature of the selected mapped feature is identified and sent to a privacy compliant destination. Advantageously, the analysis system protects the privacy of the mobile device user because it does not require the mobile device to relay protected information for the selection of customized content or relevant advertisements.

  • Publication number: 20200263318
    Abstract: A bulk SiC single crystal is produced by placing an SiC seed crystal in a crystal growth region of a growth crucible, and introducing SiC source material into an SiC reservoir region, and the bulk SiC single crystal is grown on from an SiC growth gas phase by deposition. The growth crucible is surrounded by an insulation that extends rotationally symmetrically and axially towards the central middle longitudinal axis. The insulation has mutually concentric insulation cylinder components and the insulation is notionally divided into insulation ring segments that are in turn notionally divided into volume elements. The insulation cylinder components are selected and positioned relative to one another such that every volume element of the insulation ring segment in question has a volume element density varying by not more than 10% from an average insulation ring segment density of the insulation ring segment in question.

  • Publication number: 20200184087
    Abstract: Metadata describing access control capabilities of a database technology resource is received from an access control system. Access restrictions for accessing data of the database resource by users of an application that have a role are received from an application developer. A role maintenance user interface is generated, using the metadata, for assigning the role to users of the application. Attribute values for creating an instance of the role for a user are received, using the role maintenance user interface. The instance of the role is created for the user based on the received attribute values and the access restrictions. A request from the application for the user to access the database resource is received by the access control system when the user is logged into the application. The access restrictions are applied by the access control system in the database resource when the database resource is accessed.
