  • Publication number: 20200104696
    Abstract: Systems are provided for using machine learning to identify service accounts and/or for distinguishing service accounts from user accounts based on the user names of the accounts. Machine learning tools can be trained on user name label data for service accounts and user accounts. The trained machine learning tool can then be applied to user names of accounts to determine whether the user names correspond to service accounts or not and, in some instances, without referencing tables or other structures that explicitly identify and distinguish the service/user accounts and/or conventions for identifying service accounts. Then, the systems can respond appropriately, based on the determination. The machine learning tool can also be shared with other systems to make the same determinations for their accounts without having to share confidential or proprietary account information.

  • Patent number: 8240283
    Abstract: Described is a method of making and using an adherent guide strip on a damper wheel of a piston engine to adjust engine valves. The method includes cutting the strip to a length sufficient to exactly encircle the damper wheel; placing midpoint marks onto a visible outside surface of the strip; engaging the strip with a peripheral edge of the crankshaft pulley while aligning the strip for corresponding rotational positions of the damper wheel; and guiding rotation and positioning of the crankshaft and camshaft by the midpoint marks on the guide strip in order to more easily and accurately adjust the engine's valves.

  • Publication number: 20080011068
    Abstract: Described is a method of making and using an adherent indicia strip on a crankshaft pulley of a piston engine to adjust engine valves. The method includes cutting the strip to a length sufficient to exactly encircle the crankshaft pulley; placing midpoint marks onto a visible outside surface of the strip; engaging the strip with a peripheral edge of the crankshaft pulley while aligning the strip for corresponding rotational positions of the crankshaft pulley; and guiding rotation and positioning of the crankshaft and camshaft by the midpoint marks on the indicia strip in order to more easily and accurately adjust the engine's valves.

  • Publication number: 20020048986
    Abstract: The present invention is directed, in part, to electrical connectors for engaging a mating electrical component, methods and systems comprising same. Specifically, in one embodiment, there is provided a system for engaging a mating electrical component that includes a first and second electrical connector adapted to engage different portions of the mating electrical component and spaced apart from each other. The first electrical connector has a guide post at a first end opposite said second electrical connector and the second electrical connector has a guide post at a first end opposite first electrical connector. The guide posts are adapted to support the mating electrical component therebetween, and the first electrical connector and the second electrical connector are mounted on the circuit substrate in a mirror image relationship.
