  • Publication number: 20210279723
    Abstract: Methods and systems for processing a blockchain comprising a plurality of immutable insurance policy records corresponding to industry reports are provided. According to certain aspects, a transaction request indicating an industry report issued by an entity may be received at a first node. A block including a reporting record indicating the industry report may be added to a blockchain and transmitted to another node for validation. The first node may add the block to a copy of the blockchain, where the block may be identified by a hash value that references a previous block in the blockchain that includes at least one additional industry report.

  • Publication number: 20210279722
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing and/or processing a blockchain to maintain data security for confidential and/or personal data are provided. According to certain aspects, the disclosed data security techniques may enable access sharing functionality utilizing the blockchain. For example, access sharing may be utilized to file documents with an agency. In some scenarios, the documents may be associated with unclaimed property. The documents may be associated with a smart contract. Accordingly, the document may be encrypted using a public key for the smart contract and compiled into a block of the blockchain. In response to a request to provide access to the document to a particular node, the private key for the smart contract may be encrypted using the public key for the particular node and compiled into a block of the blockchain.

  • Publication number: 20210004470
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide for automatically generating patches for security violations. For example, a plurality of inputs may be generated for code. The code may be executed using the plurality of inputs to obtain execution states at a plurality of code locations. The execution states may include at least one security violation for at least some of the plurality of inputs. Using the execution states, one or more patch conditions causing the at least one security violation may be determined. Using the execution states, one or more corresponding patch locations may be determined based on a code location of the plurality of code locations where the at least one security violation each of the one or more patch conditions occurred. At least one candidate patch for the at least one security violation may be automatically generated. The at least one candidate patch may include one of the patch conditions and one of the corresponding patch locations.

  • Patent number: 10835116
    Abstract: A video laryngoscope system includes an imager, an audio processing circuitry, a light source, an exposure controller, and a line gain module. The imager generates a first frame and a second frame of a plurality of video frames using a rolling shutter. The audio processing circuitry determines a base frequency of a vocalization based on an audio signal. The light source generates pulses of light based on the base frequency. The exposure controller adjusts a duration and position in time of the pulses based on the base frequency during the first and second frames. The line gain module selectively applies a line gain to at least a portion of the first frame and a portion of the second frame based on a gap time between the first frame and the second frame and the duration and position in time of the pulses.

  • Patent number: 10602918
    Abstract: Still image display of a recent video image of tissue as a reference still image prior to a switch in the mode of illumination of the tissue. The still image is displayed concurrently with live video of the tissue under a different mode of illumination, to facilitate discrimination between healthy and diseased tissue. When a practitioner switches a light source from a “first light” to a “second light”, the second light video may be frozen/captured and displayed as a reference still image as a PIP, and the second light live video is displayed concurrently. The second light can be infrared and/or near infrared light. The second light can include structured light to project a structured light pattern to facilitate structure measurements. The second light source is configured with a numerical aperture greater than the first light source.

  • Patent number: 10602917
    Abstract: Still image display of a recent video image of tissue as a reference still image prior to a switch in the mode of illumination of the tissue. The still image is displayed concurrently with live video of the tissue under a different mode of illumination, to facilitate discrimination between healthy and diseased tissue, and further facilitate therapeutic intervention. The reference still image may be displayed either as an insert (picture-in-picture), side-by-side, or the like concurrently with the live video image. In some embodiments, when a practitioner switches a light source from “excitation-light” to “white light”, the “excitation-light” video may be frozen/captured and displayed as a reference still image as a PIP, and the “white-light” live video is displayed concurrently. When the source is switched again, the “white-light” video may be frozen/captured and displayed as a reference still image, and the “excitation-light” live video is displayed concurrently.
