  • Publication number: 20240156467
    Abstract: A compression device is used to increase intra-luminal pressure within the upper esophageal sphincter of a patient in order relieve an impact of an abnormal or defective upper esophageal sphincter anatomy, physiology, or functionality. In one implementation, the compression device is used in conjunction with an external pressure sensing device to determine the external pressure that is to be applied to the cricoid for a specific patient. The compression device can be a means for the management and/or treatment of abnormal upper esophageal sphincter functionality, or a means for strengthening an esophageal sphincter of a subject, or a means for curing esophageal reflux disease of a subject, or a means for improving vocal function in a subject, or a means for managing lung aspiration, or a means for applying cricoid pressure during anesthesia intubation, or a means for stabilizing body structures such as during medical imaging or radiation treatment.

  • Patent number: 11983823
    Abstract: Examples of wearable systems and methods can use multiple inputs (e.g., gesture, head pose, eye gaze, voice, totem, and/or environmental factors (e.g., location)) to determine a command that should be executed and objects in the three-dimensional (3D) environment that should be operated on. The wearable system can detect when different inputs converge together, such as when a user seeks to select a virtual object using multiple inputs such as eye gaze, head pose, hand gesture, and totem input. Upon detecting an input convergence, the wearable system can perform a transmodal filtering scheme that leverages the converged inputs to assist in properly interpreting what command the user is providing or what object the user is targeting.

  • Patent number: 11966059
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for presenting virtual objects on a limited number of depth planes using, e.g., an augmented reality display system. A farthest one of the depth planes is within a mismatch tolerance of optical infinity. The display system may switch the depth plane on which content is actively displayed, so that the content is displayed on the depth plane on which a user is fixating. The impact of errors in fixation tracking is addressed using partially overlapping depth planes. A fixation depth at which a user is fixating is determined and the display system determines whether to adjust selection of a selected depth plane at which a virtual object is presented. The determination may be based on whether the fixation depth falls within a depth overlap region of adjacent depth planes. The display system may switch the active depth plane depending upon whether the fixation depth falls outside the overlap region.

  • Publication number: 20240126086
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for operating a head-mounted display system based on user perceptibility. The display system may be an augmented reality display system configured to provide virtual content on a plurality of depth planes by presenting the content with different amounts of wavefront divergence. Some embodiments include obtaining an image captured by an imaging device of the display system. Whether a threshold measure or more of motion blur is determined to be exhibited in one or more regions of the image. Based on a determination that the threshold measure or more of motion blur is exhibited in one or more regions of the image, one or more operating parameters of the wearable display are adjusted. Example operating parameter adjustments comprise adjusting the depth plane on which content is presented (e.g., by switching from a first depth plane to a second depth plane), adjusting a rendering quality, and adjusting power characteristics of the system.

  • Patent number: 11936547
    Abstract: At times, it may be desirable to determine that a client system is, or to determine the number of client systems that are, presenting particular dynamic content when an auditable event occurs in the dynamic content. One manner of making the determination may include accessing presentation time information that indicates the time(s) at which one or more client systems present particular dynamic content and accessing event time information indicating the time(s) at which one or more auditable events occur in the dynamic particular content. Based on the presentation time information and the event time information, it may be possible to determine that a client system is, or to determine the number of client systems that are, presenting particular dynamic content when an auditable event occurs in the dynamic content.

  • Patent number: 11855799
    Abstract: In embodiments of an autonomous vehicle platform and safety architecture, safety managers of a safety-critical system monitor outputs of linked components of the safety-critical system. The linked components comprise at least three components, each of which is configured to produce output indicative of a same event independent from the other linked components by using different input information than the other linked components. The safety managers also compare the outputs of the linked components to determine whether each output indicates the occurrence of a same event. When the output of one linked component does not indicate the occurrence of an event that is indicated by the outputs of the other linked components, the safety managers identify the one linked component as having failed. Based on this, the outputs of the other linked components are used to carry out operations of the safety-critical system without using the output of the failed component.

  • Publication number: 20230368090
    Abstract: According to various aspects, systems and methods are provided for automatically matching recruiters to job openings. The system may train one or more models that determine a measure of compatibility between a recruiter and a job opening. The system may train the model(s) using stored records of activity tracked by the system. The measure of compatibility may be used to determine whether a recruiter is likely to place a candidate for a job opening. Some embodiments provide a system that can collect objective data about recruiters and hiring parties, and use the objective data to train the model(s).
