  • Patent number: 8489648
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the present invention is a computer-implemented system for designing software-based components for systems of systems including multiple software-based components saved in a relational database where the functions of each software component are defined by one or more examples of its operation using a natural language. Each software component is assigned a searchable, unique free-text field such that each of the components have multiple indexed levels in a literal restriction path. The system further includes means for retrieval, synthesis, substitution, reuse and modification of the components at every level of the multiple levels, including means for defining a new software component.

  • Patent number: 8457795
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the present invention is a retrofit to rapidly transition to existing consumer refrigerator-freezer product lines in order to greatly eliminate wasted energy. This occurs because spurious opening of the system doors allows heat to enter with the deleterious side effect of causing the compressor to cycle on and off. This, in turn, consumes more power than if such duty cycles could be predicted, which would allow for their smoothing. The invention takes advantage of existing sensor technologies and develops a computational framework for their fusion for the prediction of a dependency, which controls operation of the compressor. Instances of a predictive schema are evolved and this approach allows for greater accuracy in less time than would be possible using competing neural network or support vector machine technologies. A novel evolutionary algorithm is included, which is so defined as to allow its execution on a lower-end computer.

  • Patent number: 8315958
    Abstract: The underlying objective of this invention is to show how fuzzy sets (and information granules in general) and grammatical inference play an interdependent role in information granularization and knowledge-based problem characterization. The bottom-up organization of the material starts with a concept and selected techniques of data compactification which involves information granulation and gives rise to higher order constructs (type-2 fuzzy sets). The detailed algorithmic investigations are provided. In the sequel, we focus on Computing with Words (CW), which in this context is treated as a general paradigm of processing information granules. We elaborate on a role of randomization and offer a detailed example illustrating the essence of the granular constructs along with the grammatical aspects of the processing.

  • Patent number: 8285728
    Abstract: The present invention enables the construction and deployment of semantic search engines, which learn. Here, the learning necessarily occurs in unsupervised mode given the huge amount of text being searched and the resultant impracticality of providing human feedback. That is, it acquires a lexicon of synonyms and the context for their proper application by searching a moving window of text and compiling the results. No human operator is involved. This allows for the practical search, using machine learning techniques, of very large textual bases.

  • Publication number: 20070088406
    Abstract: Systems and methods for programming and logging medical device and patient data are provided. The systems include a handheld device, which is capable of communicating with a medical device, and a base station, which provides connectivity for the handheld device to accomplish various functions such as recharging, programming, data back-up and data entry. The methods comprise the steps of detecting a medical device, obtaining and recording information from the medical device. Additionally, medical device parameters may be modified and the recorded information may be archived for future reference.

    Abstract: Improved assemblies, systems, and methods provide a stimulation system for prosthetic or therapeutic stimulation of muscles, nerves, or central nervous system tissue, or any combination. The stimulation system includes both implantable components and external components. The implantable components comprise a pulse generator including an operating system, a predefined set of stimulation parameters, a rechargeable battery, a power receiving coil, and a lead coupled to an electrode to provide electrical stimulation. An external clinical programmer system comprises a clinical programmer adapted for radio frequency wireless telemetry communication with the pulse generator, and a docking station, the docking station including a cradle to dock the hand held clinical programmer, the cradle adapted to provide access to a printer and/or non-volatile memory.

  • Publication number: 20030205148
    Abstract: A cup holder (10) for nonrotatable holding a beverage container during mixing of the pre-frozen beverage ingredients therein is described. The cup holder is removably supported in a cup holder support structure while the ingredients inside the beverage cup are processed, such as by mixing by a rotating blade. The cup holder (10) has anti-rotational features (18) on its sidewall and/or bottom wall structures, so that the cup holder is restrained against rotation which would otherwise be caused by the action of the rotating blade or other processing tool within the beverage cup. In a preferred embodiment, a spirally radiating anti-rotation pattern is formed on the cup holder bottom for mating with a corresponding pattern on the cup holder support structure.

  • Patent number: 6359562
    Abstract: An apparatus for deactivating a resonant circuit without physically contacting the resonant circuit. The EAS system includes a numerically controlled oscillator for generating an alternating electric signal, the frequency of the alternating electric signal varying in accordance with a numerical frequency control signal; a clock having a substantially fixed frequency connected to the numerically controlled oscillator; and a transmitting antenna connected to the numerically controlled oscillator for establishing an electromagnetic field within a deactivation zone. The frequency of the alternating electric signal is restricted to being an integer multiple of an integer sub-multiple of the clock frequency.

  • Patent number: 5337737
    Abstract: A dynamic orthosis incorporating proportional resistance across a major joint connecting proximal and distal body portions (e.g., the elbow connecting the upper arm and forearm), includes a first orthotic coupler for grasping the proximal body portion for movement therewith and a second orthotic coupler for grasping a distal body portion for movement therewith. A connector connects portions of said pair of couplers and permits said first and second couplers to pivot freely relative to one another about the pivotal axis of the major joint. A resistance is disposed between and operatively connects the couplers for creating a bidirectional velocity proportional resistance in both tension and compression modes to relative pivotal movement of the couplers, whereby rapid dysmetric relative movement of the proximal and distal body portions is dampened more by the resistance than is slow controlled relative movement thereof.
