  • Patent number: 10803648
    Abstract: An online system presents a content item to users and receives selections of reaction icons from the users. The online system generates a background animation with the selected reaction icons and a foreground animation to be layered on top of the background animation. The online system sends the background and foreground animations to a client device to be cached. Further, the online system presents the content item to a viewing user associated with the client device and receives a selection of a reaction icon from the viewing user. The online system selects a subset of the users based on the viewing user's affinity to the users, retrieves images of the selected users, and send the images to the client device. The client device customizes the background and foreground animations based on the images and the viewing user's reaction icon to generate a compound animation for display to the viewing user.

  • Patent number: 10758672
    Abstract: The subject technology is embodied in a method for predicting a delivery rate of a plurality of drugs dispensed by multiple infusion pumps at a delivery point. The method includes receiving one or more operating parameters related to multiple drug pumps and a carrier fluid pump, wherein each of the drug pumps dispenses a drug, and the carrier fluid pump dispenses a carrier fluid. The method also includes determining a delivery rate of a first drug at the delivery point. This can be done by predicting time variation of a concentration of the first drug at the delivery point based on a mathematical model of a mixed flow through a fluid path that terminates at the delivery point. The mixed flow includes the drugs and the carrier fluid. The model includes the operating parameters and a plurality of flow-parameters related to the mathematical model of the mixed flow.

  • Publication number: 20200230426
    Abstract: Method and systems for optimizing acoustic energy transmission in implantable devices are disclosed. Transducer elements transmit acoustic locator signals towards a receiver assembly, and the receiver responds with a location signal. The location signal can reveal information related to the location of the receiver and the efficiency of the transmitted acoustic beam received by the receiver. This information enables the transmitter to target the receiver and optimize the acoustic energy transfer between the transmitter and the receiver. The energy can be used for therapeutic purposes, for example, stimulating tissue or for diagnostic purposes.

  • Publication number: 20200153942
    Abstract: In one form the invention provides a method of modifying a data file for transmission over a data network. The method comprises the steps of receiving the original data file and creating a header file, the header file including the length in bytes of the original data file. At least one repetition byte sequence is identified within the original data file, the repetition byte sequence comprising a byte value that is repeated consecutively within the repetition byte sequence. A modified data file is created by replacing the repetition byte sequence with a repetition marker, the repeated byte value, and a repeat frequency value representing the number of times the repeated byte value occurs within the repetition byte sequence. The repetition marker is added to the header file. The invention further provides a method of transmitting a data file to a remote device over a data network.
