  • Publication number: 20210012722
    Abstract: Often when there is a glare on a display screen the user may be able to mitigate the glare by tilting or otherwise moving the screen or changing their viewing position. However, when driving a car there are limited options for overcoming glares on the dashboard, especially when you are driving for a long distance in the same direction. Embodiments are directed to eliminating such glare. Other embodiments are related to mixed reality (MR) and filling in occluded areas.

  • Patent number: 10846793
    Abstract: In an example implementation, a method includes receiving, at a computing device, borrower information, requested financing plan information, and credit bureau information relating to a particular borrower. Likewise, a method includes processing at least one of the received information to identify a subset of lenders as potential candidates to approve a loan for the particular borrower and generate an offer of the loan for the borrower. Further, the method includes performing a portfolio assignment process and generating electronic documents relating to the loan following the borrower's acceptance of the offer. Finally, the method includes sending an offer of the loan to a borrower and, upon receipt of the borrower's acceptance, transmitting the loan documents to the borrower.

  • Publication number: 20200262907
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of the Chemokine (C—C motif) ligand 20 (CCL20) as a biomarker to stratify or identify populations of patients suffering from interleukin-23 (IL23)-mediated diseases (e.g., Crohn's disease) responsive to treatment with an, anti-IL23 antagonist (including, e.g., anti-IL23 antibodies). Levels of CCL20 above or below a predetermined threshold can be used, for example, (i) to determine whether a patient with an IL23-mediated disease or disorder such a Crohn's disease is eligible or non-eligible for treatment with a therapeutic agent, (ii) to determine whether treatment with a certain agent should be commenced, suspended, or modified, (iii) to diagnose whether the IL23-mediated disease is treatable or not treatable with a specific therapeutic agent, or (iv) to predict the outcome of treating the IL23-mediated disease with a specific therapeutic agent. CCL20 can be used in combination with other IL23 pathway biomarkers such as IL22 and/or lipocalin-2 (LCN2).

  • Patent number: 10368808
    Abstract: Embodiments describe a method of determining etiology of undiagnosed events comprising monitoring electrocardiogram signals and blood pressure of a patient via a medical device, capturing one or more of an ECG segment and a BP reading in response to a triggering event, classifying one or more of the ECG segment and BP reading as normal or abnormal, and determining etiology of undiagnosed symptomatic events based on the classification. Embodiments further describe a medical device comprising sensors for monitoring ECG signals and BP of a patient, circuitry for capturing one or more of ECG segments and BP readings of a patient in response to a triggering event, and a processor for communicating one of more of captured ECG segments and captured BP readings to a remote monitoring center directly or indirectly where the captured ECG segments and captured BP readings are classified as normal or abnormal.

  • Patent number: 9297888
    Abstract: A method may include generating for transmission a repeating sequence of N constant-frequency pulses of width t seconds at interpulse intervals of T seconds, with each pulse in the sequence having a particular constant phase according to a quadratic phase sequence, which phase is applied to each pulse in a first sense of modulation. The method may further include modulating the phase of echo energy received from one or more objects reflecting the transmitted repeating sequence of N constant-frequency pulses with a second sense of modulation opposite to the first sense of modulation. The method may further include producing from the modulated received echo energy N unique and discrete frequency translations of the received echo energy as a function of range r of the reflecting objects, of magnitude equal to multiples of 1/NT Hz, which may preserve the spectrum of the received echo energy, forming in combination a composite signal frequency spectrum.
