  • Patent number: 11490966
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a processor and a non-transitory memory. The processor is configured to receive pre-operative patient specific data. The pre-operative patient specific data is inputted to a first machine learning model to determine a first predicted post-operative joint performance data output including first predicted post-operative outcome metrics. A reconstruction plan of the joint of the patient is generated based on a medical image of the joint, and at least one arthroplasty surgical parameter obtained from the user. The at least one arthroplasty surgical parameter is inputted into a second machine learning model to determine a second predicted post-operative joint performance data output including second predicted post-operative outcome metrics.

  • Patent number: 11438524
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to automated rack imaging. According to an example, a system for imaging a face of a rack includes a camera and lighting array, a positioning system, a computer system and a wheeled platform. The array includes multiple cameras located in a first plane orthogonal to a second plane and each camera has a first field of view in a first axis of the second plane. Collectively, the first fields of view extend from one end of the face to another end of the face. The positioning system is operable to move the array from a starting point to an ending point via multiple intermediate points along an axis in a third plane parallel to the first plane. The computer system (i) causes the cameras to capture images at the starting, intermediate, and ending point; (ii) stitches the captured images together; and (iii) stores the resulting image.

  • Publication number: 20220259236
    Abstract: The invention provides a facile process for preparing various Group VI precursor compounds useful in the vapor deposition of such Group VI metals onto solid substrates, especially microelectronic semiconductor device substrates. The process provides an effective means to obtain such volatile materials, which can then be sources of molybdenum, chromium, or tungsten-containing materials to be deposited on such substrates. Additionally, the invention provides a method for vapor deposition of such compounds onto microelectronic device substrates.

  • Publication number: 20220183085
    Abstract: In one aspect, a control plane Interworking Function (IWF-C) is used to establish a Packet Data Unit (PDU) session in a data communications network. A create session request is received, for example from a Mobile Management Entity (MME). A create session management context request is generated by the IWF-C and transmitted to a Session Management Function (SMF). A create session management context request response is received from the SMF. A create session request response is generated by the IWF-C and sent, for example to the MME. In other aspects, control plane policy interworking and user plane interworking is provided between components of 4G and 5G networks.

  • Publication number: 20200366681
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for authenticating a user account with a synchronized content management system are disclosed. A synchronized online content management system may receive a request from a client device to access content in the content management system via a web browser that is running on the client device. The system may identify that a client-side application for the content management system has been installed on the client device and that the client-side application is already logged into a user account with the content management system. The system can cause the web browser to open a local host connection to the client-side application such that the web browser may be able to obtain from the client application some user account identifying information for the user account. The system can then cause the web browser to log into the user account by using the user account identifying information.
