  • Publication number: 20210302625
    Abstract: The invention is generally related to an insert for being embedded in a silicone hydrogel contact lens. The insert is made of a crosslinked materials which are rigid in dry state at room temperature (from about 22° C. to about 26° C.), have a high oxygen permeability and a high refractive index in fully hydrated state, and can become softer at a temperature great than 32° C. Such materials are useful for making inserts in embedded contact lenses for correcting corneal astigmatism, presbyopia, and color blindness lenses and for imparting photochromic characteristics to the lenses. The invention is also related to a method for making embedded silicone hydrogel contact lenses comprising an insert of the invention therein and to embedded silicone hydrogel contact lenses comprising an insert of the invention therein.

  • Patent number: 11115094
    Abstract: An electronic device is able to be embedded in a mobile device with a plurality of antennas. The antennas are electrically coupled to the electronic device through a connector. The electronic device includes a plurality of built-in antennas, a communication processor, a plurality of antenna switching circuits, and a control processor. The built-in antennas receive a wireless mobile communication signal. The communication processor calculates the reception strength of the wireless signal received by each of the built-in antennas or each of the antennas. Each of the antenna switching circuits is electrically coupled to one of the built-in antennas or one of the antennas according to a control signal. The control processor correspondingly outputs the control signal according to the reception strength of the wireless signal received by the built-in antenna and the antenna.

  • Publication number: 20210231884
    Abstract: An optical connector is disclosed. The optical connector includes a rear housing, an inner housing, and an outer housing. The inner housing includes a retaining hole to accommodate a ferrule. The outer housing is disposed on an outer periphery of the inner housing to cover a front portion of the inner housing. The outer housing rotates about the central axis with respect to the inner housing by a rotation guiding mechanism cooperating with an adapter for connecting the optical connector to another optical connector. The outer housing includes a front wall covering the distal end of the inner housing. The front wall includes at least one opening region. The opening region corresponds to a fiber exposed surface of the ferrule when the outer housing is rotated with respect to the inner housing from an initial position to a connected position by the rotation guiding mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20210216384
    Abstract: Implementations set forth herein relate to an automated assistant that can be invoked while a user is interfacing with a foreground application in order to retrieve data from one or more different applications, and then provide the retrieved data to the foreground application. A user can invoke the automated assistant while operating the foreground application by providing a spoken utterance, and the automated assistant can select one or more other applications to query based on content of the spoken utterance. Application data collected by the automated assistant from the one or more other applications can then be used to provide an input to the foreground application. In this way, the user can bypass switching between applications in the foreground in order to retrieve data that has been generated by other applications.

  • Publication number: 20210124132
    Abstract: A method of providing fiber optic connectivity including gripping a rotatable coupler of a fiber optic connector at a grip portion thereof, inserting the rotatable coupler into a bulkhead adapter in a straight direction, turning the rotatable coupler in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction to increase a tension of the spring while pushing the rotatable coupler forward, and releasing the rotatable coupler such that the rotatable coupler rotates in a counter clockwise direction and locks the fiber optic connector into the bulkhead adapter.

  • Publication number: 20210074285
    Abstract: Implementations can reduce the time required to obtain responses from an automated assistant by, for example, obviating the need to provide an explicit invocation to the automated assistant, such as by saying a hot-word/phrase or performing a specific user input, prior to speaking a command or query. In addition, the automated assistant can optionally receive, understand, and/or respond to the command or query without communicating with a server, thereby further reducing the time in which a response can be provided. Implementations only selectively initiate on-device speech recognition responsive to determining one or more condition(s) are satisfied. Further, in some implementations, on-device NLU, on-device fulfillment, and/or resulting execution occur only responsive to determining, based on recognized text form the on-device speech recognition, that such further processing should occur.

  • Publication number: 20210074286
    Abstract: Implementations can reduce the time required to obtain responses from an automated assistant through proactive caching, locally at a client device, of proactive assistant cache entries—and through on-device utilization of the proactive assistant cache entries. Different proactive cache entries can be provided to different client devices, and various implementations relate to technique(s) utilized in determining which proactive cache entries to provide to which client devices. In some of those implementations, in determining which proactive cache entries to provide (proactively or in response to a request) to a given client device, a remote system selects, from a superset of candidate proactive cache entries, a subset of the cache entries for providing to the given client device.

  • Publication number: 20200395018
    Abstract: Implementations set forth herein relate to a system that employs an automated assistant to further interactions between a user and another application, which can provide the automated assistant with permission to initialize relevant application actions simultaneous to the user interacting with the other application. Furthermore, the system can allow the automated assistant to initialize actions of different applications, despite being actively operating a particular application. Available actions can be gleaned by the automated assistant using various application-specific schemas, which can be compared with incoming requests from a user to the automated assistant. Additional data, such as context and historical interactions, can also be used to rank and identify a suitable application action to be initialized via the automated assistant.

  • Publication number: 20200357395
    Abstract: Implementations herein relate to pre-caching data, corresponding to predicted interactions between a user and an automated assistant, using data characterizing previous interactions between the user and the automated assistant. An interaction can be predicted based on details of a current interaction between the user and an automated assistant. One or more predicted interactions can be initialized, and/or any corresponding data pre-cached, prior to the user commanding the automated assistant in furtherance of the predicted interaction. Interaction predictions can be generated using a user-parameterized machine learning model, which can be used when processing input(s) that characterize a recent user interaction with the automated assistant.
