  • Patent number: 10989927
    Abstract: A method includes providing frames of video data for being displayed by a head mounted display (HMD). Pixel data is encoded in a pixel of at least some of the video data frames, the encoded pixel data defining a focal state of an optics block of the HMD for displaying the respective frame of the video data to a user. The predetermined focal state is determined from a plurality of available focal states of the optics block, each focal state corresponding to a different focal plane of a virtual image generated based on the video data. The pixel used for encoding may be disposed outside a region of the frame that is displayable by the HMD.

  • Publication number: 20170087165
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods and kits for reducing the occurrence of preterm delivery and other pregnancy-related conditions in pregnant female subjects exhibiting one or more risk factors for preterm delivery and other pregnancy-related conditions. For example, the present invention relates to methods for reducing the occurrence of preterm delivery in a pregnant female subject having no history of preterm delivery and exhibiting one or more risk factors for preterm delivery (e.g., smoking during pregnancy). The methods and kits provide for the administration of a steroid hormone to the pregnant female subject.

  • Patent number: 9549065
    Abstract: A balance between customer satisfaction and cost to providing customer care can be achieved based on the use of online interaction classification techniques. Such techniques can use measurements such as a log likelihood ratio to determine if an interaction should be removed from automation to live support if it appears necessary.
