  • Publication number: 20240169027
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for generating a statistically covaried machine learning model for performance measurement of service providers. The method receives a configuration file that includes one or more parameters associated with a plurality of individuals and parses it to generate and executing the database query on input data to generate sets of tabulated data of individuals of the plurality of individuals. The method next determines one or more measures of service providers listed in the configuration file using two or more tabulated data of individuals from the sets of tabulated data of individuals. The method finally generates a covaried machine learning model by training a machine learning model by statistically covarying measures and using them as training data.

  • Publication number: 20240143319
    Abstract: Disclosed are various approaches for determining a version of an application for a user to access based at least in part an overall posture of the user and the device launching the application. An application can support multiple delivery mechanisms to allow a user different ways to access the service provided by the application. A posture level (e.g., level of risk, level of compliance) associated with the overall posture of a device and user accessing an application is determined. The posture level can be used to select which version of the application should be launched by the device in order to provide the best experience for the user while ensuring that security is considered.

The process comprises the steps of providing a purified coal product (PCP), wherein the PCP is in particulate form, and wherein at least about 90% by volume (% v) of the particles are no greater than about 25 ?m in diameter; wherein the PCP has an ash content of less than about 10% m; and combining the PCP with a feedstock for pitch to create a combined blended mixture suitable for thermal reaction followed by distillation to create a resultant pitch. The combined blended mixture comprises at least around 0.1% m and at most around 90% m PCP. Composite materials that find utility as carbon electrodes, particularly electrolytic baked carbon anodes, can be made from combining the pitch and PCP with a filler material, such as a pet coke.

  • Publication number: 20230240561
    Abstract: Estimating inner and middle ear pathologies and conditions, such as issues caused by effusion in the ear, from wideband acoustic immittance can be accomplished by use of an analog-electric model of an ear canal and inner ear. The model is utilized to convert acoustic measurements into output data. The output data can be used to train a machine learning network to identify classifiers that would indicate the presence of an issue in the ear, such as the presence and amount of effusion in the ear. The model is based upon ear mechanics and includes a number of inputs from the acoustic measurements that are fit and converted to the output data that can be compared to measured data for hearing loss to train a system to quickly and easily diagnose an estimated effusion volume or other condition, such as via a diagnostic tool.

  • Publication number: 20230240562
    Abstract: Estimating conductive hearing loss from wideband acoustic immittance can be accomplished by use of an analog-electric model of an ear canal and inner ear utilized to convert acoustic measurements into output data. The output data can be used to create conductive hearing loss methods for diagnostically estimating hearing loss based upon the acoustic measurements. The model includes a number of inputs from the acoustic measurements that are fit and converted to the output data that can be compared to measured data for hearing loss to train a system to quickly and easily diagnose an estimated hearing loss, such as via a diagnostic tool. The system can also be trained to identify an ear type based upon the transformed acoustic measurement data, and the type of ear can be used to provide additional hearing loss estimation.
