  • Patent number: 11899569
    Abstract: A system that includes a failed test detector and a task updater can automatically update tasks associated with consistent failures of software tests in a software development management platform. The failed test detector can use a set of evidence of test (EOT) files that indicate software testing results over a period of time to identify tests that are consistently failing when executed against versions of a software application. The task updater can automatically create tasks associated with such consistently-failing tests in the software development management platform. The task updater can also automatically close existing tasks associated with tests, in the software development management system, if the failed test detector determines that those tests are no longer failing consistently.

  • Patent number: 11902177
    Abstract: A system is provided for an artificial intelligence-based engine for generating recommendations for resource allocation. In particular, the system may comprise an artificial intelligence module configured to access one or more data sources containing resource data associated with one or more users. Based on the resource data, the system may identify a group of analogous users with respect to a specific user. The system may then generate one or more recommendations for a resource allocation associated with the user. The one or more recommendations may then be presented on a graphical interface of a user device associated with the user. In this way, the system may provide an AI-driven method for efficient allocation of resources.

  • Patent number: 11897437
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for heat sanitizing a vehicle. In one example, a method may include, responsive to receiving a request for sanitization of a vehicle interior, activating an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) system and operating a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system to heat the vehicle interior above an upper threshold temperature for a threshold duration. In this way, the HVAC system may be advantageously used to expose the vehicle interior to temperatures that kill or inactive microbes while the UVGI system may supplement the heat sanitizing.

  • Publication number: 20240036321
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a near-eye, near-eye display system comprises a stack of waveguides having pillars in a central, active portion of the waveguides. The active portion may include light outcoupling optical elements configured to outcouple image light from the waveguides towards the eye of a viewer. The pillars extend between and separate neighboring ones of the waveguides. The light outcoupling optical elements may include diffractive optical elements that are formed simultaneously with the pillars, for example, by imprinting or casting. The pillars are disposed on one or more major surfaces of each of the waveguides. The pillars may define a distance between two adjacent waveguides of the stack of waveguides. The pillars may be bonded to adjacent waveguides may be using one or more of the systems, methods, or devices herein. The bonding provides a high level of thermal stability to the waveguide stack, to resist deformation as temperatures change.

  • Publication number: 20240039820
    Abstract: Methods and system for configuring a remote terminal unit (RTU) device of a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. The RTU device transmits an initial message payload to a SCADA server of the SCADA system via a broker server in accordance with a Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) messaging protocol. The initial message payload complies with a Sparkplug specification for MQTT and includes at least one metric name and initial data and at least one PropertySet object associated with the metric name indicative of at least one parameter of the RTU device to be configured. In response to the initial message payload, the SCADA server transmits a subsequent message payload to the RTU device via the broker server. The subsequent message payload also complies with the Sparkplug specification and includes one or more values for the PropertySet object for configuring the at least one parameter of the RTU device.

  • Publication number: 20240024540
    Abstract: In an embodiment, there is provided a catheter extender-lengthener comprising end connectors and tubing that comprises a polymer and a substance such as an antibiotic that is safe for exposure to bodily fluids. The catheter extender-lengthener is suitable to connect to a catheter extension set. Antibiotic can be eluted to fluid on both sides of a clamp and can diffuse toward the patient's body. Similar tubing can be used in a catheter extension set and optionally in a cap. The catheter extender-lengthener can be added on to existing catheter assemblies. Drugs can be combined at high concentration with polymer, and the device can elute effective amounts of minocycline and rifampin for more than a month. Use of the devices can provide adjustable antibiotic or dose and can be adjusted in response to a patient's condition. This can lessen the possibility of Catheter Related Blood Stream Infection.

  • Publication number: 20240008865
    Abstract: The system includes a frame composed of materials and geometry allowing selective deformation in a plane perpendicular to a patient's anatomy at the surgical site but resisting deformation in a plane parallel to the anatomy. The frame is connected to stabilizing features and sheets, which are attached to adhesive to secure the frame to the patient. The features, sheets, and adhesive layers extend both into and beyond the frame. An integrated sheet covers the prospective incision site on the patient. When positioned at the site, the frame conforms to the patient. Anchor points are distributed along the frame to reversibly secure and provide a stable base for surgical retractors, even when unilaterally applied. By adaptable positioning and design of the stabilizing members and adhesive layers on the frame, the system is able to provide optimal tractional stability when experiencing tensile loads in myriad surgical environments including ophthalmic and spinal surgery.

  • Patent number: 11853852
    Abstract: Systems and methods for preventing machine learning models from negatively affecting mobile devices are provided. For example, a mobile device including a camera, memory devices, and one or more processors are provided. In some embodiments, the processors may be configured to provide images captured by the camera to a machine learning model at a first rate. The processors may also be configured to determine whether one or more of the images includes an object. If one or more of the images includes the object, the processors may be further configured to adjust the first rate of providing the images to the machine learning model to a second rate, and in some embodiments, determine whether to adjust the second rate of providing the images to the machine learning model to a third rate based on output received from the machine learning model.
