  • Patent number: 10719315
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media for automatically determining developer team composition. One of the methods includes obtaining a reference set of snapshots for a code base, each snapshot comprising a representation of source code of the code base at a particular time and being associated with a particular project and a particular developer of a team of developers of the code base; selecting a subset of snapshots; dividing the subset into a plurality of time windows; for each time window and for each developer that committed a snapshot to the reference collection of snapshots during the time window, determining a normalized rating of the developer's skills in each of a plurality of developer activity metrics; and aggregating, for each time window, the normalized ratings for each developer to generate a developer team composition for the fixed period of time.

  • Patent number: 10696495
    Abstract: A flexible chain diverter system acts as a moveable diverter “swing-arm” capable of dispensing groups of bottles into the array of entrance gates for loading onto a shipping pallet. The flexible chain has a variable axial length. As a result of the ability to change in axial length, the diverter described herein can remain taut at the shortest distance gates and can stretch to reach gates at the maximum range of reach. This allows for the path length of travel to be optimized for any gate.

  • Publication number: 20200126426
    Abstract: A server device can obtain historical location data, concerning a vehicle, captured by a global positioning system (GPS) device of the vehicle and historical engine control unit (ECU) data concerning the vehicle captured by an ECU of the vehicle. The server device can process the historical location data and the historical ECU data to train a machine learning model to determine a relationship between the historical location data and the historical ECU data. The server device can receive location data and ECU data concerning the vehicle and update the machine learning model based on the location data and the ECU data. The server device can receive real-time location data concerning the vehicle and derive an equivalent real-time ECU speed using the machine learning model.

  • Patent number: 10602058
    Abstract: A camera application executable on a camera enabled device, such as a smartphone, can include an image capture interface used to record the live image displayed on a display screen of the device. The image capture interface can also display multiple album icons that can be actively associated with an image capture function. The album icons may correspond to attribute sets including a folder into which recorded images may be stored. The album icons operate as individual shutter buttons that cause the camera application to record the image and apply one or more attributes of the respective album to the recorded image. The attributes may include storage attributes as well as sharing attributes.
