  • Patent number: 10399206
    Abstract: PDCs, methods of fabricating the PDCs, and methods of using the PDCs are disclosed herein. The PDCs include a PCD table bonded to a substrate. The PCD table includes an upper surface having a plurality of recessed features formed therein. The plurality of recessed features are configured to attract at least some cracks that form in the PCD table. As such, the plurality of recessed features limit or prevent crack propagation into other portions of the PCD table and limit a volume of the PCD table that spalls. Methods of fabricating the PDCs include partially leaching the PCD table and, after leaching the PCD table, forming the plurality of recessed features in the upper surface thereof. Method of using the PDCs include rotating a PDC that has spalled relative to a rotary drill bit such that a portion of the upper surface of the PDC that has not spalled forms a cutting surface thereof.

  • Publication number: 20190246936
    Abstract: A system and method may be provided for associating bio-signal data (e.g. EEG brain scan data) from at least one user with at least one music data item (e.g. song, or piece of music). By associating bio-signal data, or emotions determined therefrom, with music, the system may establish a data store of music associated with emotions. That database may then be leveraged upon determining that a user is feeling a particular emotion through an EEG scan. When a particular emotion is detected in EEG data of a user, the system may then respond based at least partly on the same or similar emotion being associated with one or more music data items in the system. For example, the system may recommend a particular song associated with the same emotion presently being experienced by the user.

  • Publication number: 20190171729
    Abstract: A system to enable a user to generate copies of files at a client device and to cause a file hosting platform to generate backups of these copies in a cloud database without transferring file content data for these files between the client device and the cloud database. When a user copies a file from a first folder on a client device to a second folder on the client device, the system may determine that the file content data for this file is already present in the cloud database. Then, rather than uploading the file content data to the cloud database from the client device, the system may cause a file hosting platform to access the file content data directly from the cloud database to perform a file copy operation.

  • Patent number: 9789587
    Abstract: A polycrystalline diamond element leaching assembly includes a polycrystalline diamond element, a protective leaching cup surrounding at least a portion of the polycrystalline diamond element, and a protective layer positioned between the polycrystalline diamond element and the protective leaching cup. A method of processing a polycrystalline diamond element includes covering a selected portion of a polycrystalline diamond element with a curable resin layer, curing the curable resin layer to form a protective layer, and exposing at least a portion of the polycrystalline diamond element to a leaching agent. Another method of processing a polycrystalline diamond element includes depositing a curable resin within a protective leaching cup and positioning a polycrystalline diamond element within the protective leaching cup such that the curable resin is displaced so as to surround at least a portion of the polycrystalline diamond element.

  • Publication number: 20160212616
    Abstract: At one node in a wireless communications network, a transmitter (i) encodes an outgoing data stream as a sequence of outgoing symbols of a symbol constellation, (ii) applies a sequence of random rotations to the outgoing symbols to generate an outgoing sequence of rotated symbols in the same symbol constellation, and (iii) transmits wireless signals based on the rotated symbols. At another network node, a receiver, having knowledge of the sequence of random rotations, (i) recovers an incoming sequence of rotated symbols from the received wireless signals, (ii) applies a corresponding sequence to de-rotations to the recovered rotated symbols to generate a sequence of de-rotated symbols, and (iii) decodes the de-rotated symbols to recover an incoming data stream that is ideally identical to the outgoing data stream. An eavesdropping node in the network that does not have knowledge of the sequence of random rotations is unable to recover meaningful data.

  • Publication number: 20090119976
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a bait bucket assembly for retaining bait therein. More specifically, a bait bucket assembly is described that may facilitate transferring bait from a cast net therein while minimizing, if not preventing, undesired egression of the bait from the bait bucket assembly, i.e., the bait “escaping” from the bait bucket. Further, the bait bucket assembly may facilitate desired egression of the bait from the bait bucket assembly, i.e., a user retrieving the bait. The bait bucket assembly comprises a bucket having a funnel to achieve the above. The bait bucket assembly may further comprise a floatation device such that the same may float in water.

  • Publication number: 20030055511
    Abstract: A shaped particle for use in an array of interlocking particles to repair, replace, improve or augment a bone deficiency is provided. The particle is comprised of bone material and, in a preferred embodiment, has six extremities, and the interstitial spaces between the extremities of one particle accept the extremities of an adjacent particle in an array. In a preferred embodiment, the bone material is demineralized bone material. In some embodiments, the particle is suspended in a material that facilitates application of the particle to bone, and the material may contain biological factors that augment bone growth or prevent infection.
