  • Patent number: 10827089
    Abstract: A method for creating a consolidated work-flow on a multi-function device (MFD) is disclosed. For example, the method is executed by a processor and includes monitoring user interactions with the MFD, determining that an interaction threshold is exceeded, creating the consolidated work-flow for a particular user interaction with the MFD, and creating a short-cut associated with the consolidated work-flow, wherein the short-cut is to be displayed on a user interface (UI) of the MFD, wherein the consolidated work-flow is executed when the short-cut is selected.

  • Publication number: 20200320656
    Abstract: Embodiments provide techniques, including systems and methods, for identifying and matching requestors and providers. For example, embodiments can display an identification pattern that is unique for a matched requestor and provider to allow the providers and requestors to quickly, easily, and accurately validate one another's identities prior to a service being provided. In some embodiments, the identification element may be presented on a provider communication device to clearly display graphics associated with an identification element to all requestors in an area so that the requestors may easily identify a matched provider.

  • Publication number: 20200274789
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are disclosed for using machine learning to dynamically detect physical impairments in lines of a subscriber network. In some implementations, per-tone data for a line of a subscriber network and data indicating a set of one or more scores is obtained. Each score included in the set of scores indicates a conditional likelihood that the line has a type of impairment with respect to a different feature subset ensemble. The per-tone data and the data indicating the set of one or more scores is provided as input to a model. The model is trained to output, for each of different sets of feature subset ensembles, a confidence score representing an overall likelihood that a particular line has a physical impairment. Data indicating a particular confidence score representing an overall likelihood that the line has the physical impairment is obtained. The particular confidence score is provided for output.

  • Publication number: 20200253079
    Abstract: An information handling system for identifying equipment in a datacenter establishes a wireless communication link with an element of datacenter equipment, and receives identification information from the element. The identification information distinguishes the element from other elements of the datacenter equipment that are visibly indistinct from the first element. The information handling system further captures image data when the field of view of an imaging system includes the element, displays the image data on a display, matches a portion of the image data with an image object associated with the first and second elements, determines an identity of the element based upon the identification information and the image object, and displays an augmented reality overlay on the display over the image data. The augmented reality overlay co-locates the image object with the portion and includes the identity over the portion.

  • Publication number: 20200252302
    Abstract: An information handling system for managing equipment in a datacenter includes a display, a wireless communication interface, and an imaging system configured to capture image data from within a field of view of the imaging system. The information handling system shows the image data on the display, and provides an augmented reality overlay on the display over the image data. The augmented reality overlay locates an element of datacenter equipment that needs to be serviced. The information handling system further determines that the element is within the field of view, establishes a wireless communication link with the element via the wireless communication interface in response to determining that the element is within the field of view, and receives an instruction to service the element from a remote service system in response to establishing the wireless communication link.

  • Patent number: 10726254
    Abstract: Systems for dynamically detecting duplicate items are provided. In some examples, a system, may receive a document, document image, document details or the like. The system may identify at least one other document for comparison to the received document. The system may perform optical character recognition on the document or document image to identify data within one or more standard fields of the document. The detected data may be compared to the at least one other document and, if no matches exist, the document may be identified as not a duplicate. If one or more matches exist, the system may identify x and y coordinates of a location of data within one or more standard fields on the received document. A corresponding location on the at least one other document may be identified based on the x and y coordinates.

  • Patent number: 10694330
    Abstract: Allowing access to regulated content (e.g., FDA regulated) via mobile devices can increase operational efficiency of companies that have this type of content, and allow users to quickly interact with this content even when outside of the company office. Yet, mobile devices present security issues in ensuring that the integrity of the regulated content is maintained. A regulated content management system applies a multi-step validation and authentication process to allow mobile access to regulated content. The system validates a mobile application installed on the device for regulated content access, the mobile device itself, and the credentials of the user trying to access the content before access is granted. This thus provides users with access to regulated content in a mobile environment while maintaining the integrity of the regulated content.

  • Patent number: 10686492
    Abstract: Multiple ports of a vectored digital subscriber line (DSL) system can be automatically reconfigured to respond to a fault or defect associated with another one of the ports of the system. Information regarding retrain events for the ports of the system can be examined to identify the “bad” port with the associated fault or defect and the corresponding group of ports affected by the bad port. The affected group of ports can be identified as a group of ports that all were retrained within a predetermined time period and for common retrain reasons (e.g., 1 or 2 different retrain reasons). Once the affected group of ports is identified, the affected group of ports and the bad port can receive corresponding repair profiles to reconfigure the ports to respond to the fault or defect.

  • Publication number: 20200184429
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to processing systems that perform item recognition and profile generation for dynamic event processing. A computing platform may receive a first check image containing first check data, and may generate a profile correlating the first check data to a user account. The computing platform may receive a second check image containing second check data. The computing platform may receive profile information corresponding to one or more recognized fields of the second check image, where the profile information includes the information associated with the profile. The computing platform may determine whether a confidence score indicating a correlation between the second check data and the profile exceeds a predetermined correlation threshold. Based on determining that the confidence score does exceed the predetermined correlation threshold, the computing platform may send commands directing an event processing platform to process the second check image based on the profile.

  • Publication number: 20200123067
    Abstract: A method of fabricating cooling features on a CMC component may comprise compressing a fabric preform within tooling including holes and/or recesses facing the fabric preform. During the compression, portions of the fabric preform are pushed into the holes and/or recesses. Gases are delivered through the tooling to deposit a matrix material on exposed surfaces of the fabric preform while the fabric preform is being compressed. The matrix material builds up on the portions of the fabric preform pushed into the holes and/or recesses, and a rigidized preform with surface protrusions is formed. The tooling is removed, and the rigidized preform is densified, thereby forming a CMC component including raised surface features.
