  • Patent number: 11402361
    Abstract: A method of controlling a gas mixture for a laser includes receiving as an input one or more of a plurality of concentration values. Each of the concentration values respectively corresponds to a constituent of a plurality of constituents of air. In the method, a blend of the plurality of constituents of air is generated based on the received one or more of the concentration values. The method also includes determining whether the blend of the plurality of constituents of air is within a threshold range for a ratio of the concentration values for the plurality of constituents of air. A flow of the blend of the plurality of constituents of air is controlled to be routed through an output circuit for use as the gas mixture for the laser following a determination that the blend of the plurality of constituents of air is within the threshold range.

  • Patent number: 11399015
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a memory and a hardware processor. The memory stores identification information of a user. The processor receives from a device a request for the identification information of the user and in response to the request, appends a data element to the identification information to produce a protected message. The processor also encrypts the protected message to produce an encrypted message and communicates the encrypted message to the device. The data element executes in response to the encrypted message being decrypted, and the data element encrypts the identification information when the data element executes.

  • Patent number: 11310259
    Abstract: A system for using artificial intelligence to generate a computing network architecture diagram based on user inputs, applicable vulnerability/cyber threat data and internal/external compliance/audit regulation data. In addition, machine-learning techniques may be used that leverage previously implemented computing network architectures. The computing network architecture diagram may be generated absent a baseline diagram or the user inputs may define at least a portion of an initial/baseline network architecture diagram that is modified based on the vulnerability/cyber threat data, the internal/external compliance/audit regulation data and/or the previously implemented computing network architectures. In additional embodiments of the invention, new/emerging vulnerabilities and cyber threats are detected, and in real-time response, adjustments to the computing network infrastructure and determined and implemented.

  • Publication number: 20220084112
    Abstract: Systems, computer program products, and methods are described herein for tracking user eye focus for adjusting interactions with a user. The present invention may be configured to receive, from a user device, image data associated with an item and receive, from the user device, eye-tracking data associated with eye movements of a user while the user is viewing the item. The present invention may be further configured to determine, based on the eye-tracking data, whether the user focused on the item and receive outcome data comprising an action, performed by the user, regarding the item. The present invention may be further configured to determine, based on the outcome data and based on whether the user focused on the item, an attribute of the action by determining whether the user understood the item, whether the user took the action regarding the item impulsively, and/or the like.

  • Publication number: 20220049275
    Abstract: Mammalian cells are described that includes a recombination target site integrated within high integrating locus. Recombinant protein producer cell lines incorporating the mammalian cells and methods for forming the mammalian cells are also described. The high integrating loci have been developed through understanding and mapping of the three dimensional hierarchical structure of chromatin in mammalian cells. The high integrating loci are present in transcriptionally active environments that can provide both chromatin accessibility and epigenetic stability. As such, the recombinant mammalian cells can provide predictable and stable transgene production.
