  • Patent number: 10591965
    Abstract: Various embodiments of methods and systems context-aware thermal management in a portable computing device (“PCD”) are disclosed. Notably, the environmental context to which a PCD is subjected may have significant impact on the PCD's thermal energy dissipation efficiency. Embodiments of the solution seek to leverage knowledge of a PCD's environmental context to modify or adjust thermal policy parameters applied within a PCD in response to a thermal event within the PCD.

  • Publication number: 20190197443
    Abstract: A system includes one or more server hardware computing devices communicatively coupled to a network. The one or more server hardware computing devices include one or more processors and memory storing specific computer-executable instructions that, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the system to receive a first request to calculate a trust score for a user associated with a user account of an online proctored examination platform. The trust score represents results of a risk analysis of the user. The instructions cause the system to obtain internal data of the online proctored examination platform, the internal data describing usage of the online proctored examination platform by the user, perform the risk analysis using at least the internal data to produce the trust score, associate the trust score with the user account, and perform an action based on the trust score.
