  • Publication number: 20220027804
    Abstract: A method includes receiving data characterizing a configuration of an asset configured within an oil and gas production environment. The data can include attribute-value pairs identifying attributes of the configuration of the asset and values of the attributes. The attribute-value pairs can correspond to a hierarchical structure of the asset and sub-components of the asset. The method can include determining a representation of the asset. The representation can be provided in a provided in a language-independent format suitable for use with data interchange application programming interfaces. The method can include determining an asset model of the asset. The asset model can include a digital representation characterize the hierarchical structure of the asset and sub-components of the asset. The asset model can include computer-readable, executable content associated with the attribute-value pairs. The method can include providing asset model.

  • Patent number: 11079401
    Abstract: Various embodiments are described herein for an apparatus and method for indicating at least one property related to an object. Detection data and optionally input data are received for the at least one property related to the object and at least one light property that corresponds to the at least one property related the object based on the detection signal is determined using a processing unit. A light is then generated and projected to illuminate and/or surround at least a portion of the object, the light being based on the at least one light property to indicate the at least one property related to the object.

  • Publication number: 20210219952
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods for ultrasonic imaging by sparse sampling are provided. In one embodiment, an ultrasound imaging system comprises an array of ultrasound transducer elements, electronic circuitry in communication with the array of ultrasound transducer elements and configured to select a first receive aperture of the array comprising a plurality of contiguous ultrasound transducer elements and at least one non-contiguous ultrasound transducer element, and a beamformer in communication with the electronic circuitry. Each ultrasound transducer element of the first receive aperture is configured to receive reflected ultrasound echoes and generate an electrical signal representative of imaging data.

  • Publication number: 20200395095
    Abstract: An ultra-fast solution to the problem of comparing genotypes across genotyping technologies, while preserving privacy, is presented. A method for transforming a standard genotype representation (i.e., a list of alleles associated with IDs representing single nucleotide variants) into a “fingerprint” of the genotype does not require knowledge of the SNP chip technology, and yields fingerprints that can be readily compared to ascertain relatedness between two genotypes even if the genotypes were created using different SNP chip designs. Because of their reduced size, computation on the genotype fingerprints is fast and requires little memory. This enables scaling up a variety of important genotype analyses, including determinations of degree of relatedness, recognizing duplicative sequenced genotypes in a set, and many others. Because the original genotype representation cannot be reconstructed from its fingerprint, the method also has significant implications for privacy-preserving genotype analytics.

  • Publication number: 20190177719
    Abstract: An ultra-fast solution to the problem of comparing genomes across sequencing technologies and genome freezes, while preserving privacy, is presented. A method for transforming a standard genome representation (i.e., a list of variants relative to a reference) into a “fingerprint” of the genome does not require knowledge of the technology, reference and encoding used, and yields fingerprints that can be readily compared to ascertain relatedness between two genome representations. Because of their reduced size, computation on the genome fingerprints is fast and requires little memory. This enables scaling up a variety of important genome analyses, including determinations of degree of relatedness, recognizing duplicative sequenced genomes in a set, and many others. Because the original genome representation cannot be reconstructed from its fingerprint, the method also has significant implications for privacy-preserving genome analytics.

  • Patent number: 8829170
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to constructs and in particular genetic constructs comprising polynucleotide sequences capable of release in covalently closed, circular form from a larger nucleotide sequence such as, but not limited to, a genome of a eukaryotic cell. Preferably, once released, a polynucleotide sequence is reconstituted in a form which permits expression of the polynucleotide sequence. In one embodiment, the reconstituted polynucleotide sequence comprises a coding sequence with all or part of an extraneous nucleotide such as, but not limited to, an intronic sequence or other splice signal inserted therein. Expression and in particular transcription of the coding sequence involves splicing out the extraneous sequence. The release and circularization is generally in response to a stimulus such as a protein-mediated stimulus. More particularly, the protein is a viral or prokaryotic or eukaryotic derived protein or developmentally and/or tissue specific regulated protein.

  • Patent number: 7458602
    Abstract: A motorcycle trailer converts between a single mode, for towing one motorcycle, and a dual mode for towing two motorcycles. In the single mode, a longitudinal frame includes a front member, a center member and a rear member which assemble to provide an elongate, narrow platform with a tire channel for receiving the front and rear wheels of a motorcycle. Left and right wheel assemblies each include a wheel with a tire, an axle and an axle extension that slides into an axle sleeve fixed to the underside of the longitudinal frame. A straight coupler is fitted to the front member for hitching the assembled trailer to a tow vehicle. In the dual mode, two assembled longitudinal frames, each having the front member, center member and rear member, are positioned in parallel spaced relation and an axle extension is connected between the axle sleeves.
