  • Patent number: 10371585
    Abstract: A temperature sensor assembly includes a bluff body, and a first member spaced apart from the bluff body that defines a first flow channel in relation to the bluff body. The temperature sensor assembly also includes a second member spaced apart from the bluff body that defines a second flow channel in relation to the bluff body. The first member and the second member further define a third flow channel in fluid communication with and downstream of the first flow channel and the second flow channel. The temperature sensor assembly also includes a sensor element spaced apart from the bluff body and disposed at least partially within the third flow channel.

  • Patent number: 10366567
    Abstract: In overview, the technology is primarily directed to the implementation of linked gaming in respect of a plurality of gaming machines. In particular, a controller device is disclosed, this controller device being adapted to enable the management of a plurality of linked games via a single piece of hardware. This is achieved in part by virtualization of jackpot controllers within the controller device. More specifically, a user is enabled to configure a plurality of virtual jackpot controllers by way of interaction with a graphical user interface, and select compatible electronic gaming machines to participate in a linked game provided by a given one of the virtual jackpot controllers.

  • Publication number: 20190147838
    Abstract: A method for generating multimedia output. The method comprises receiving a text input and receiving an animated character input corresponding to an animated character including at least one movement characteristic. The method includes analyzing the text input to determine at least one text characteristic of the text input. The method includes generating a viseme timeline by applying at least one viseme characteristic to each of the at least one text characteristic. Based on the viseme timeline, the method includes generating a multimedia output coordinating the at least one character movement of the animated character with the at least one viseme characteristic.

  • Publication number: 20180298448
    Abstract: The present disclosure is a method comprising the steps of performing one or more nucleic-acid based assays to identify mutations present in the breast tissue acquired from the subject corresponding to a first test module and a second test module associated with detection of at least one predetermined mutation of one or more genes, wherein each test module is configured to provide a positive outcome corresponding to at least one predetermined mutation detected in the tissue or a negative outcome corresponding to absence of detectable predetermined mutation in the sample; and identifying the type of neoplasm of the breast tissue based upon the provided outcome of the both test modules. Preferably, the first test module is associated with detection of mutation in MED12 gene and/or RARA gene, while the second test module is associated with detection of mutation in FLNA gene, SETD2 gene and/or MLL2 gene.

  • Patent number: 9720790
    Abstract: Technology described herein includes an arrangement whereby a hardware-based solution is implemented to enable mirroring of NVRAM data in a master server directly to NVRAM in a sleeper server. Both the master server and sleeper server implement a like motherboard unit, which is configured to implement the mirroring technology. That is, the roles of master and sleeper may be reversed. The master server includes a hardware module that monitors (but does not affect) NVRAM operations at the master server, and replicates those operations via a high speed communications link, such as a fiber optic link, to the sleeper server. The term “high speed communications link” refers to a link with at least 2.5 gigabit speed, and preferably at least 5 gigabit speed. The sleeper server is configured to, when in sleeper mode, suspend control of its own NVRAM module. Instead, the NVRAM module is controlled by a module that is configured to receive NVRAM operations via the fiber optic link, and apply those operations.

  • Publication number: 20130064901
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods for diagnosis and prognosis of gastric cancer. The approach described herein can distinguish intestinal-type gastric cancer (G-INT) from diffuse-type gastric cancer (G-DIF). The genomic expression signatures of G-INT and G-DIF define two major sets of genes. A diagnosis of gastric cancer G-INT and G-DIF can be made on the basis of the expression levels of these genes. This can lead to a better prognosis and treatment of gastric cancer.
