  • Publication number: 20210124414
    Abstract: Image editing on a wearable device includes a system which obtains sensor data via the wearable device. The sensor data includes a representation of hand movement, head movement or voice command associated with a user. The system executes an application for editing an image based on the obtained sensor data. The system provides for display a list of image adjustment types associated with the application. The system selects an image adjustment type based on one or more of the hand movement, the head movement or the voice command. The system provides for display a prompt having options to adjust a property of the selected image adjustment type. The system selects one of the options included in the prompt. The system modifies an image based on the selected option. The system then provides the modified image for storage in a data structure of a memory unit in the wearable device.

  • Patent number: 10843248
    Abstract: The invention relates to a bending tool (1) comprising a tool body (2) having an upper (3) and an opposite lower end region (4), wherein an attachment extension (5) is configured in the upper end region (3), and a working tip (6) is configured in the lower end region (4). A tool identification marker (11) is disposed in the tool body (2), and a communication interface (9) is disposed in the attachment extension (5) on at least one side surface (8) and not projecting beyond it, which interface is connected with the tool identification marker (11) by way of a connection line (10). An electronics unit (12) is disposed in the tool body (2). A voltage supply contact (14) that is electrically insulated relative to the tool body (2) is is disposed on the attachment extension (5), which contact is connected with a voltage supply module (15) of the electronics unit (12).

  • Patent number: 10769428
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for training a second model to approximate the output of a first model to classify, according to a classification scheme, image data received as input, and after the second model is trained accessing map data that specifies a plurality of geographic locations, and for each geographic location associated with an entity for each image of the one or more images that depict the entity located at the geographic location, providing the image to the second model to generate an embedding for the image, associating each of the one or more embeddings generated by the second model with the geographic location, and storing, in a database, location data specifying the geographic location, the associated one or more embeddings, and data specifying the entity, as an associated entity entry for the entity.

  • Patent number: 10569195
    Abstract: Described herein is a method of adjusting the composition of a chromatography product to achieve a target enriched proportion of a desired component from an input feed having a lower proportion of the desired component using simulated moving bed (“SMB”) chromatography wherein the eluent for the SMB apparatus may comprise the very input feed being enriched. The method is exemplified by enriching a high fructose corn syrup from a 42% fructose syrup to a 55% fructose syrup without substantially reducing the dissolved solids concentration of the 55% syrup relative to the input 42% syrup. The 42% syrup is also used as the eluent for the SMB apparatus and may be reconstituted from the raffinate stream by passing the raffinate stream over a glucose isomerase column alone or in combination with a dextrose feed. The method reduces water usage and saves energy by minimizing the need for evaporation to obtain a 55% fructose syrup with a high dissolved solids content.

  • Patent number: 10308582
    Abstract: A process is described for making acrylic acid from dextrose, which comprises fermenting dextrose; removing solids from the resulting fermentation broth; removing lactic acid from the clarified broth by extraction into an organic solvent; separating out the lactic acid-loaded organic solvent while recycling at least a portion of the remainder back to the fermentation step; reacting the lactic acid with ammonia to provide a dehydration feed comprising ammonium lactate while preferably recycling the organic solvent; carrying out a vapor phase dehydration of the ammonium lactate to produce a crude acrylic acid product; and purifying the crude acrylic acid by distillation followed by melt crystallization, chromatography or both melt crystallization and chromatography.
