  • Publication number: 20210378484
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for delivering consistent high quality, cost efficient results in fixed or mobile endoscopy facilities, without requiring the continuous real-time involvement of a fellowship trained gastroenterologist, by integrating patient specific information into decision support systems and AI/machine learning systems employed during the planning and examination phases of the endoscopy procedure.

  • Patent number: 11191423
    Abstract: Systems and methods for improving endoscopy procedures are described that provide not only a conventional real time image of the view obtained by an endoscope, but in addition, a near real time 3D model and/or a 2D flattened image of an interior surface of an organ, which model and image may be processed using AI software to highlight potential tissue abnormalities for closer examination and/or biopsy during the procedure. A navigation module interacts with other system outputs to further assist the endoscopist with navigational indicia, e.g., landmarks and/or directional arrows, that enhance the endoscopists' spatial orientation, and/or may provide navigational guidance to the endoscopist to assist manipulation of the endoscope.

  • Patent number: 11100373
    Abstract: A system and methods are provided in which an artificial intelligence inference module identifies targeted information in large-scale unlabeled data, wherein the artificial intelligence inference module autonomously learns hierarchical representations from large-scale unlabeled data and continually self-improves from self-labeled data points using a teacher model trained to detect known targets from combined inputs of a small hand labeled curated dataset prepared by a domain expert together with self-generated intermediate and global context features derived from the unlabeled dataset by unsupervised and self-supervised processes. The trained teacher model processes further unlabeled data to self-generate new weakly-supervised training samples that are self-refined and self-corrected, without human supervision, and then used as inputs to a noisy student model trained in a semi-supervised learning process on a combination of the teacher model training set and new weakly-supervised training samples.

  • Patent number: 9503254
    Abstract: A loop filter in a modified phase locked loop has a proportional path generating first output signal that is proportional to an input signal and an integral path for generating a second output signal that is an integral of the input signal. An additional functional path generates a third output signal that is a predetermined function of the input signal. The predetermined function is of the form f(s)/g(s), where f and g are polynomial functions. An adder combines the first, second, and third output signals into a common output signal.

  • Publication number: 20060191788
    Abstract: The subject invention comprises electrochemical methods and devices for in vitro detection of an ischemic event in a patient sample. Following addition of a known amount of a transition metal ion to the patient sample, electrodes are used to measure the current or potential difference of non-sequestered transition metal ion in the sample. The amount of non-sequestered transition metal ion in the sample reflects the degree of modification to albumin that is the result of an ischemic event.
