  • Publication number: 20230004884
    Abstract: Validated tracking and managing of events associated with equipment during a usage lifetime. Equipment is registered within a distributed register/ledger of a distributed trust network according to an equipment identifier and subsequently events related to the equipment are registered and managed within the distributed register/ledger during the usage lifetime. Such events include resource arrangement-related events and property-right-related events. In addition, logic may be included in the distributed register/leger that triggers various actions in response to the events.

  • Publication number: 20220414495
    Abstract: A computing device for predicting an expected loss for a set of claim transactions is provided. The computing device predicts, at a first machine learning model, a claim frequency of the set of claim transactions over a given time period and trained using historical frequency data and based on a segment type defining a type of claim, each type of segment having peril types. The computing device also predicts, at a second machine learning model, claim severity of the set of claim transactions during the given time period, the second machine learning model trained using historical severity data and based on the segment type and the corresponding peril types. The computing device then determines the expected loss for the set of claim transactions over the given time period by applying a product of prediction of the first machine learning model and the second machine learning model.

  • Patent number: 11526240
    Abstract: An input device such as a stylus for providing input to a touch-sensitive surface with reduced sensitivity to leakage current variations over temperature is disclosed. A passive stylus may include one or more diodes in parallel with one or more bleed resistors. The non-linear load of the diode and resistor network can be operative to provide a stylus electric field in response to a stimulation signal from an electronic device that can be capacitively coupled to, and sensed by, the electronic device. The signal sensed by the electronic device can be a function of the total leakage current, which can vary greatly as a function of temperature and frequency. In order to improve performance, the diode and resistor network, including the bleed resistor(s) and diodes within that network, can be selected and/or designed to provide a reduced variation in the leakage current and more accurate stylus detection.

  • Patent number: 11495197
    Abstract: A practice musical instrument configured to mimic implement rebound produced when playing a conventional version of the musical instrument can include a plurality of spaced-apart, rectangular keys. At least two of the keys can have a different length. A strike pad can be attached to a top surface of each key. Each strike pad can be formed of rubber. Each strike pad can be sized to the key to which it is attached. Hitting one of the strike pads with an implement can produce a rebound of the implement that mimics a rebound of the implement when hitting a corresponding key of the conventional version of the instrument. Hitting one of the strike pads with the implement produces a sound that is quieter than when the implement hits a corresponding key of the conventional version of the instrument.

  • Publication number: 20220284387
    Abstract: Validated tracking of events associated with equipment during the course of a resource arrangement. The events include location-changing events, which provide for a physical change in location of the equipment. The verified tracking of the events is provided by a distributed trust computing network, which through convergence by one or more decentralized nodes provides for authenticating/validating data stored within distributed registers/ledgers. Specific to the invention, once a location-changing event is determined/detected, the location-changing event is registered in the distributed trust computing network by creating and validating a data block within a distributed register/ledger that includes information pertaining to the location-changing event.
