  • Patent number: 10905971
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed toward a novel pressurized vapor cycle for distilling liquids. In some embodiments of the invention, a liquid purification system is revealed, including the elements of an input for receiving untreated liquid, a vaporizer coupled to the input for transforming the liquid to vapor, a head chamber for collecting the vapor, a vapor pump with an internal drive shaft and an eccentric rotor with a rotatable housing for compressing vapor, and a condenser in communication with the vapor pump for transforming the compressed vapor into a distilled product. Other embodiments of the invention are directed toward heat management, and other process enhancements for making the system especially efficient.

  • Patent number: 10880273
    Abstract: A secure electronic messaging system includes processors coupled to a network, and constituent applications, services, and processes configured to securely exchange messages between participants such as hosts and recipients, and to protect personally identifying information (PII). The system and processor(s) are configured to generate a deanonymization probability (DP) for an anonymized dataset (ADS) responsive to a query received from the network, and to generate the ADS with pseudoidentities of recipients, when the DP does not exceed a predetermined DP threshold (DPT). The system thereby reduces the probability that the ADS and or pseudoidentities can be deanonymized, and thereby enables secure message exchanges between the participants, while protecting and without sharing the PII of participant identities. When DPs exceed the DPT, the system generates error messages, and or alternative queries that generate ADSs with DPs that do not exceed the DPT.

  • Publication number: 20200358792
    Abstract: An AI-based cyber threat analyst protects a system from cyber threats. A cyber threat analyst module uses i) one or more AI models, ii) a set of scripts, and iii) any combination of both, to form and investigate hypotheses on what are a possible set of cyber threats that include abnormal behavior and/or the suspicious activity. The analyzer module uses one or more data analysis processes including i) an agent analyzer data analysis process; ii) an Ngram data analysis process; iii) an exfiltration data analysis process; and iv) a network scan data analysis process; in order to obtain any of the abnormal behavior and the suspicious activity to start the investigation on the possible set of cyber threats hypotheses, as well as, to obtain the collection of system data points to either support or refute the possible cyber threat hypotheses.

  • Patent number: 10732604
    Abstract: A method for calibrating a CNC machine including providing instructions for machining a surface of a distortion-free object, selecting a true axis of movement of a toolhead of the machine using the instructions, instructing the toolhead to travel on an object to be machined along the true axis of movement, but where the toolhead actually travels along an actual axis that is deviated from the true axis as a result of the surface distortions on the object to be machined, selecting multiple points along the actual axis traveled by the toolhead on the object to be machined, comparing the distance of the multiple points along the actual axis from the true axis to determine offset amounts from the true axis corresponding to a lack of straightness of the object to be machined, and modifying the instructions to compensate for the offset amounts before uploading the instructions to a CNC controller.

  • Publication number: 20200182989
    Abstract: Front-end circuitry for an ultrasound system comprises a beamformer FPGA integrated circuit, transmit ICs with both pulse transmitters and linear waveform transmitters and T/R switches, transmit control and receiver ICs, and analog-to-digital converter (ADC) ICs. Only the transmit ICs require high voltages, and the transmit/receive switches are integrated in the transmit ICs, isolating the receiver ICs from high voltages. The transmitters can be trimmed to adjust the pulse rise and fall rates, enabling the transmission of pulses with low harmonic frequency content and thus better harmonic images.

  • Publication number: 20200147638
    Abstract: A slot die shim for use with a slot die, the slot die shim including a first channel configured to receive a first coating, a second channel configured to receive a second coating, and a third channel configured to receive a third coating. The slot die shim simultaneously dispenses the first coating through the first channel, the second coating through the second channel, and the third coating through the third channel onto a substrate. The coatings can be applied at different flow rates and include different test reagents. A vacuum force is applied to the first, second, and third coatings to control a width and a thickness of each of the coatings and a gap or distance between the coatings. The first, second, and third coatings are placed near one another or directly in contact with one another to minimize the area required for the coatings.
