  • Patent number: 11227321
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention disclose a method, computer program product, and system for capturing and transposing user behavioral data. The method includes determining that a user enters a first venue based on tracking a computing device of the user. The method further includes capturing behavioral data of the user in the first venue as the user interacts with a first product, where the captured behavioral data is saved to a database. The method further includes responsive to determining that the user enters a second venue, determining a set of recommendations for the user that has entered the second venue, based on the behavioral data in the user profile and a product available to the user in the second venue. The method further includes generating a recommendation to a user.

  • Patent number: 10921602
    Abstract: A head-mounted device (HMD) whose circumference is dynamically adjustable to conform to different head sizes and shapes is disclosed herein. The HMD includes a front-end and back-end housing. The front-end housing includes a first compute unit, and the back-end housing includes a second compute unit. The HMD also includes two adjustable flex fit arms that connect the front-end housing to the back-end housing. The HMD has an enclosed rounded boundary that is placeable around a user's head. The HMD also includes a nested flexible cable ribbon, which is nested within a cavity of one of the arms and which includes both a static bend and a dynamic bend. The bend radius for the dynamic bend is larger than the bend radius of the static bend. The dynamic bend enables the nested flexible cable ribbon to expand or contract when the circumference of the enclosed rounded boundary changes.

  • Patent number: 10909606
    Abstract: User behaviors are monitored, by machine logic, during a visit to a venue by a user, the user behaviors associated with user interactions with items in the venue, a location of the items being tracked. In real-time, based, at least in part, on the user behaviors and the items, a subsequent behavior of the user is predicted, by machine logic, the predicting resulting in predicted behavior(s). Cognitive recommendations are provided, by machine logic, to the user in real-time during the visit, the cognitive recommendations corresponding to additional item(s) based, at least in part, on the predicted behaviors and the items. Machine learning is used to train a system for facilitating the noted aspects, as well as to update training.

  • Patent number: 10184084
    Abstract: A method and system of separating a mixture of water, diluted bitumen and a mineral phase comprising fine solids, produced from oil-wet or carbonate-cemented oil sands ore, includes the steps of agitating the mixture to produce a micronized emulsion of the diluted bitumen in a continuous water phase such that a majority of the diluted bitumen associates with the fine solids, and passing the micronized emulsion through a separator to produce a bitumen stream enriched in bitumen and fine solids, and a water stream.

  • Publication number: 20030118109
    Abstract: A video signal is compressed by alternately removing predetermined arrangements of pixels, e.g. odd and even lines. In the case of an interlaced video signal, this may comprise removing the even fields of odd frames and odd fields of even frames. Two such compressed signals may be combined and transmitted in a channel having a bandwidth sufficient for one uncompressed signal only. In the case of non-interlaced video signals, odd and even lines, for example, may be removed from alternate frames. The removed lines can be replaced with odd and even lines taken from another video signal to produce a compressed video signal in which the lines are alternately from first and second uncompressed video signals.

  • Patent number: 5860590
    Abstract: A container formed from a blank to define indexing longer walls having an inward incline but a double thickness provided by a foldline at the tops thereof so that the indexing projections are receivable within corresponding openings in the base of a corresponding container. Each part of the indexing walls has an extension such that at each end thereof one extension attaches to the outside of an end wall while the other attaches to the inside of an end wall with preferably that attaching to the inside of an end wall through a pair of parallel vertical folds providing a support at least in part for the weight of a stacked container.
