  • Patent number: 9613032
    Abstract: A technique and associated mechanism is described for registering event metadata at a first site, transferring the event metadata to a second site using a portable module, and processing the event metadata at the second site. A user can register the event metadata at the first site in the course of consuming broadcast content. Namely, when the user encounters an interesting portion of the broadcast content, the user activates an input mechanism, resulting in the storage of event metadata associated with the interesting portion on the portable module. The second site can upload the event metadata from the portable module and, in response, provide content associated with the event metadata, including recommended content associated with the event metadata.

  • Patent number: 9396669
    Abstract: A system for generating surgical procedure training media draws upon the realistic data of an actual surgical procedure for realistic training without the risks. A 3D capturing component records three-dimensional model plus imaging data over time of a portion of a patient's body undergoing a surgical procedure. A spatial detection system detects an orientation of a surgical instrument relative to the patient's body during the surgical procedure. A modeling component creates a four-dimensional model (3D model+time) of the portion of the patient's body. Animation such as contingent events, trainee prompts, a virtual surgical instrument, etc., can be added to the model to expand upon the training potential. A user interface processes and edits training media for playback of the four-dimensional model including defining triggers responsive to a trainee simulated surgical inputs to pace sequencing of playback.

  • Patent number: 8271516
    Abstract: A social network service provides trusted, timely and managed communications between a querying individual and an informed individual by optimizing distribution of queries to reflect a requisite amount of expertise necessary (i.e., interest, background, education, demographic attribute, etc.). Those candidate recipients with a rare level of expertise or specialization can specify a desired level of participation, which is respected. In order not to exhaust their availability, those who are less qualified or part of a larger demographic category appropriate for the query are selected to handle queries of lesser difficulty or less specialization. Anonymity if desired by the recipient party can be supported by increasing the pool of candidate recipients so that the querying party cannot reasonably ascertain who is responding. Timeliness of response, as well as satisfaction in the response, is tracked in order to affect redirection of a query.

  • Patent number: 8239544
    Abstract: A system and method for removable storage content transfer. A removable storage medium is passed between a terminal and a device, and a device file stored on the removable storage medium is used to communicate media content and other information between the terminal and the device. The device file may include “session information,” such as information that can be used to represent a network or direct connect session between the terminal and the device file. The session information may include, for example, media content and header information. The device file may allow the terminal to treat the removable storage medium as a locally connected device in some situations. For example, the terminal may create a device stack using device parameters stored on the removable storage medium, and use the device stack to communicate with the device via the removable storage medium.

  • Patent number: 7860793
    Abstract: A healthcare smart card management system stores a large amount of healthcare information to overcome shortcomings of separate and largely paper medical and insurance files. Embedded security technology supports partial or separated identity proofing as well as hardware time limited storage. Dynamic contextual privacy consent enhances user, healthcare provider, and insurer privacy and proprietary information to encourage and enable universal adoption. Data is structured in self-executing (“print to device”) for legacy systems as well as in rolled-access format and archival format to balance usage and data integrity purposes. A plurality of network interfaces are incorporated as well as financial transaction codes. Card integrity is enhanced by remote usage oversight, self-destruct monitoring (e.g., time, location, hacking, malfunction, etc.), and integral write-only audit logs.

  • Publication number: 20090260071
    Abstract: A card-based mechanism can enable users to secure their network by limiting network access to devices to which a card is communicationally connected, the card having been previously provisioned by the user. A trusted computing device can be used to provision a card. Subsequently, the card can be communicationally connected to a card-provisionable device and can use the networking abilities of that device to authenticate itself to the trusted computing device. The card-provisionable device can then be granted access to the network. The card can also be used to provision the device with other information, such as device-specific settings. If necessary, either the card or the trusted computing device can revoke the network access rights of the card-provisionable device without affecting other devices on the network.

  • Patent number: 7555554
    Abstract: A protocol and related techniques and platforms allow vendors to selectably extend the Media Transport Protocol (MTP), or other defined protocols to implement vendor-specific commands, data fields, instructions and other extension sets. According to embodiments of the invention in one regard, one or more extension space may be utilized to derive independent extension sets, in part by separating the extension space according to a unique identifier assigned to or associated with a given vendor. In embodiments that unique identifier may be or include an Internet DNS (Domain Name System) domain name, or other extension set name or identifier. According to the invention in one regard, because a DNS domain name may be independently registered and secured by participating vendors or manufacturers and by definition uniquely assigned, the separation of vendor extension sets by that type of name may be automatic and free from conflict.
