  • Patent number: 10325329
    Abstract: A technique allows a smart meter to receive a mask. The smart meter may receive the mask from a utility company or an escrow service. The smart meter may apply the mask to original metered data on a continuous schedule, on a periodic schedule, or on a determined schedule, or on a randomized schedule to conceal the original metered data. The smart meter may apply different masks at different times. The smart meter transmits the concealed metered data as augmented metered data remotely to an electric utility via a communication network.

  • Patent number: 10313427
    Abstract: Technologies are presented that optimize application management on a computing device through contextual application archival and retrieval. A method of managing applications may include: learning contextual relevancy of one or more applications installed on a computing device to a user of the device and determining whether an application is no longer contextually relevant to the user. If the application is no longer contextually relevant, the device may send a request to an application management service to obtain and/or maintain the application; create a placeholder for the application at the device; and remove the application from the device. The device may monitor contextual inputs for relevancy of the archived application. If contextual relevancy is determined, the device may send a request to the service to provide the archived application or a replacement of the archived application to the device; receive the requested application; install the requested application; and remove the placeholder.

  • Patent number: 10191794
    Abstract: Technologies are provided in embodiments to monitor and analyze networks. The embodiments can cause a bit in a first bit sequence of a device filter to indicate a failure state based on not receiving a message from a node in a network during a reporting time interval, and upon the reporting time interval expiring, to combine the first bit sequence with a corresponding bit sequence of a shadow filter. The combination preserves, in the shadow filter, an indication of the failure state from the bit in the first bit sequence and any other indications of failure states from bits of the corresponding bit sequence of the shadow filter. More specific embodiments cause, upon the reporting interval expiring, a bit in a second bit sequence of the device filter to indicate a no failure state based on an indication of another no failure state in the first bit sequence.

  • Patent number: 9939644
    Abstract: Technologies for controlling vision correction of a wearable computing device includes controlling an opacity of an adjustable lens of the wearable computing device to generate a viewing port through the adjustable lens such that a region defined by the viewing port has an opacity less than a remaining region of the adjustable lens. For example, the opacity of the adjustable lens may be increased except for the region defined by the viewing port. In use, the wearable computing device may adjust the location, size, and/or shape of the viewing port based on a predefined prescription, the direction of the user's gaze, the user's viewing context, and/or other criteria. Additionally or alternatively, an image may be displayed on an external display surface of the adjustable lens. The wearable computing device may include multiple adjustable lens, each of which may be controlled in a similar manner.
