  • Patent number: 10375234
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting volume level changes in communications are described herein. In some embodiments, a system comprises a computer system. The computer system comprises at least one processor and a memory coupled to the at least one processor. The memory stores program instructions that are executable by the at least one processor to cause the computer system to perform tasks. The tasks include recording a communication that comprises audio, and analyzing the audio of the communication. The analysis of the audio is operable to detect a change in a volume level of the audio that indicates an occurrence of a potential event of interest. The tasks also include creating and storing an information record corresponding to the communication in a second database. The information record includes an indication of the detected change in the volume level.

  • Publication number: 20190184643
    Abstract: A blank is manufactured by additive layer manufacturing. The blank is made up of a part, a tool, and a connection member connecting the tool to the part, which are all integrally formed during the build from the same build material. The connection member can be cut or broken to disconnect the tool from the part which enables the tool to be used to mechanically remove surface build material from the surface of the part.

  • Patent number: 9825626
    Abstract: A programmable equalizer and related method are provided. The equalizer includes a pair of current-setting field effect transistors (FETs) coupled in series with a pair of input FETs and a pair of load resistors, respectively, between a first voltage rail (Vdd) and a second voltage rail (ground). A programmable equalization circuit is coupled between the sources of the input FETs, comprising a plurality of selectable resistive paths and a variable capacitor, which could also be configured as a plurality of selectable capacitive paths. Each of the selectable resistive paths (as well as each of the selectable capacitive paths) include a selection FET for selectively coupling the corresponding resistive (or capacitive) path between the sources of the input FETs. In the case where one of the input FETs is biased with a reference gate voltage, the source of each selection FET is coupled to the source of such input FET.

  • Publication number: 20170116170
    Abstract: A records management system and method that permits paper records to be tagged, stored and retrieved according to user criteria. The system includes a scanning module, a central server, one or more user workstations and an optical character recognition server. After scanning, the records may then be serialized and categorized by project, and then supplemented automatically by the system with a hypertext data file. The system provides for the manual input of additional hypertext data and merger of the hypertext data file with other records in the project. The end user may then search and/or filter records according to information contained in the hypertext data file. Output from the system may include summary excerpts whereby summaries for data contained in select pages of each document in a project are associated with at least dates, page numbers, and providers for the data.

  • Publication number: 20140082111
    Abstract: A computer program product and method for delivery of electronic and physical documents, with an email interface for uploading documents to be automatically stored in a user's account. The system may receive uploaded electronic documents for delivery to one or more electronic and/or physical endpoints. After the electronic documents have been received, the delivery system determines whether the received electronic documents should be delivered electronically or physically, based on recipient data in the delivery system. If physical documents are to be delivered, the system may intelligently decide whether to aggregate some documents into a multi-document package. The system provides for delivery by commercial carrier, postal service, and/or electronic delivery. Optional services available to the sender include, but are not limited to, certified mail, proof of service, and email confirmation.
