  • Patent number: 11120800
    Abstract: Techniques for performing feature computation are described. A system may gather and analyze event data to generate a timeline of the event data and corresponding feature data (e.g., statistical values representing the event data). The system can create a customized timeline that allows information to be sorted and aggregated in different timescales to improve speech processing and other functionality. For example, a feature computation system may calculate statistics and other information based on interactions with a speech processing system. These statistics provide information about previous interactions that may be leveraged to interpret future voice commands.

  • Publication number: 20100144503
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a shoulder exercise and stretching apparatus includes a forearm support, a forearm securing means for securing a user's forearm to the forearm support, an elbow support to capture the elbow of a user and keep the user's arm in a desired position to isolate the user's shoulder as a pivot point for rotation, and a rotation member coupled to the forearm support to rotate the forearm support through a desired plane and thereby provide an angular force to a target shoulder of the user. One or more handles, may be provided for grasping by a user's free hand to assist in the movement of the rotation member. Measurement means may be provided for determining the rotation of the apparatus. Resistance means may be provided to provide for resistance exercises of the shoulder.

  • Patent number: 7210313
    Abstract: A bangle includes first and second bangle members, each having a proximal end and a distal end. The distal end of the first bangle member is pivotally connected to the distal end of the second bangle member to permit relative movement between the first and second bangle members. A first locking member is provided at the proximal end of the first bangle member and a second locking member is provided at the proximal end of the second bangle member. The first locking member is selectively moveable between a closed position where the first locking member engages the second locking member to releasably secure the proximal end of the first bangle member to the proximal end of the second bangle member, and an open position where the first locking member is separated from the second locking member.

  • Publication number: 20050055295
    Abstract: Separate accounts of life insurance carriers receive premiums for company owned life insurance (COLI). The premiums are invested in a stable value fund along with net premiums from other separate accounts. The stable value fund enters into a derivative contract with a stable value provider. The stable value fund calculates and reports book value of the investments to the separate accounts, which report the book value to the policy holders. The separate account investors share in the potential risk and reward from early withdrawals by other fund investors.

  • Publication number: 20040243499
    Abstract: Aspects of a stable value product and a total return swap are combined to provide for coordinated investment. A rate based on LIBOR on the amount of the swap plus a percentage is paid in exchange for the total returns on a specified index and a fee is paid in exchange for the stable value. Balances and amounts due are periodically computed and payments of a net difference are made.
