  • Publication number: 20190281076
    Abstract: A corpus of documents (and other data objects) stored for an entity can be analyzed to determine one or more topics for each document. Elements of the documents can be analyzed to also assign a risk score. The types of topics and security elements, and the associated risk scores, can be learned and adapted over time using, for example, a topic model and random forest regressor. Activity with respect to the documents is monitored, and expected behavior for a user determined using a trained recurrent neural network. Ongoing user activity is processed to determine whether the activity excessively deviates from the expected user activity. The activity can also be compared against the activity of user peers to determine whether the activity is also anomalous among the user peer group. For anomalous activity, risk scores of the accessed documents can be analyzed to determine whether to generate an alert.

  • Patent number: 7522951
    Abstract: An electrode arrangement (10) comprises a knitted electrically conductive electrode portion (12) containing electrically conductive yarn and at least one portion (14) of moisture impermeable electrically conductive material attached to the electrode portion (12). During use the electrode portion (12) and portion of material (14) are applied to a wearers skin. The moisture impermeable material portion (14) is of silicon loaded with carbon black. The moisture impermeable portion (14) encourages perspiration of a user and the perspiration trapped between the skin and moisture impermeable portion (14) reduces skin to electrode contact resistance to increase efficiency of detection of user heart rate or other electrical signals generated by a user.

  • Patent number: 7093753
    Abstract: A pocket suitable for incorporation in garments, luggage items, personal accessories or the like is provided with an active mechanism and control apparatus to close the pocket. Such closing action may be triggered manually but can also be triggered automatically when the pocket is moved away from an upright orientation or experiences a jolting action. In one embodiment the closing action is performed by a length of shape memory material which contracts when heated to pull the pocket front panel top portion against the rear panel top portion and close the pocket opening.

  • Publication number: 20060015503
    Abstract: A method and system for anonymously and opportunistically tracking the location of a portable device in a wireless infrastructure is described. The system comprises an installed infrastructure (12) in for example a shopping mall, the infrastructure having short range radio stations (14a,14b) primarily installed as wireless information access points. Standard communication between a users device (10a) and a station (14a) is according to a short range radio protocol such as ZigBee in which devices are assigned unique identifiers. In an exchange, the identifier is correlated with location, time and date data and uploaded via a backchannel connection (16) to a database (20) which a user may connect with at a later time. The user, knowing his objects identifier, can therefore access the data to determine where his object last interacted with a station.

  • Patent number: 6807869
    Abstract: A sensor for detecting the presence of a force exerted by a persons foot on the ground is provided in a shoe, the sensor interposed between the foot and the ground in the region of the sole of the shoe. The sensor includes a resilient compressible elastomeric middle layer of insulating material disposed between a lower conductive fabric layer and a plurality of upper conductive fabric layer portions. The resilient elastomeric layer includes a plurality of embedded electrically conductive metal filaments extending from a first surface towards a second surface of the elastomeric layer. In regions of the sensor compressed by force ‘F’ due to a persons weight the thickness of the elastomeric layer is reduced and so the metal filaments are of sufficient length to provide electrical continuity through the elastomeric layer between the lower and upper conductive fabric.

  • Patent number: 5442216
    Abstract: A semiconductor body (2) has a first region (3) providing a current path to a first main electrode (4) and carrying a plurality of active device cells (5). The majority (5a) of the active device cells are connected to a second main electrode (6) for providing a main current path through the device between the first and second main electrodes (4 and 6). At least one remaining active device cell forms a monitor cell (5b) and is connected to a monitor electrode (7) for providing a monitor current path through the device between the first main electrode (4) and the monitor electrode (7). The one monitor cell (5b) is formed differently from the majority (5a) of the active device cells so as to be more susceptible to failure than the majority of the active device cells so providing an early warning of the imminent failure of the device enabling evasive action to be taken to inhibit failure of the entire device.

  • Patent number: 5362980
    Abstract: A semiconductor component is formed by an insulated gate field effect device having a semiconductor body with a first region of one conductivity type adjacent one major surface, a second region defining a conduction channel area separating a third region from the first region, an insulated gate adjoining the conduction channel area for controlling current flow between the first and third regions and an injection region for injecting opposite conductivity type charge carriers into the first region, and a protection device for limiting the current through the insulated gate field effect device. The protection device is formed by a fourth region of the opposite conductivity type formed within the first region, a fifth region separated from the first region by the fourth region, a first conductive path connecting the fifth region to the insulated gate for allowing the flow of one conductivity type charge carriers towards the insulated gate and a second conductive path connected to the fourth region.
