  • Patent number: 11128597
    Abstract: Techniques for information passing for content-based source selection via DNS are described. A domain name specified in a DNS lookup request includes one or more hostname and/or subdomain values that are generated based on obfuscating a path of the object that is ultimately to be sought by the client. The authoritative DNS server can identify the desired object, and select a particular network address for the lookup response in a more intelligent manner based on characteristics of the sought object, server location availabilities and characteristics, client device characteristics, etc.

  • Patent number: 11106990
    Abstract: Detecting motion-sensor data anomalies by registering an event associated with received motion-detector sensor data at a current timestamp, calculating, a timestamp delta between a previous timestamp and the current timestamp, and counting transitions between a set of timestamp deltas using a finite state machine. The anomaly detection also includes using a Markov chain transition matrix, generated from the finite state machine, to determine that, a probability of transitioning from a current state to a next state associated with the event, is less than a predetermined value, and registering an anomaly associated with the sensor and the event.

  • Patent number: 11103270
    Abstract: A surgical apparatus comprises a body, an ultrasonic transducer, a shaft, and an end effector. The ultrasonic transducer is operable to convert electrical power into ultrasonic vibrations. The body comprises a pivotal trigger. The shaft couples the end effector and the body together. The end effector comprises a clamp arm and an ultrasonic blade in acoustic communication with the ultrasonic transducer. The ultrasonic blade is operable to deliver ultrasonic vibrations to tissue. Pivotal movement of the trigger causes movement of the clamp arm. The trigger includes a compliant feature configured to limit the amount of force delivered to tissue by the clamp arm. The flexible feature may comprise a flexible band, living hinge, a series of living hinges, or a flexible tab.

  • Publication number: 20210264802
    Abstract: An apparatus is disclosed for conditioning and adapting an individual having an environmental anxiety disorder to real-world environments through computer simulations. The subject is fully or partially immersed in a computer-simulated environment for a time-limited session. Real-time monitoring of the human subject is performed for a change in a sensor-derived, quantified anxiety level. Responsive to an increase in anxiety level, the computer-simulated environment modulates the sensory complexity of one or more features of the simulation wherein the human subject adapts to increasingly complex environments.

  • Publication number: 20210256684
    Abstract: A computer system is structured to determine a density of particulate matter in a diesel particulate filter (DPF) sample. The computer system includes a processing circuit having a processor and a memory. The processing circuit is structured to generate a computed tomography (CT) scan-based image of the DPF sample; and, segment the CT scan-based image of the DPF sample into a plurality of regions. For at least one region from the plurality of regions, the processing circuit is structured to determine a density of a portion of the DPF sample corresponding to the at least one region of the CT scan-based image of the DPF sample and cause an electronic display of a user device to display the CT scan-based image including the at least one region and an indication of the density for the at least one region.

  • Patent number: 11091687
    Abstract: A method of treating a reservoir penetrated by at least one well involves placing a consolidated solids pack into a permeable zone of rock in the reservoir. The consolidated solids pack has a reduced permeability to water and a reduced mobility in the permeable zone. For example, when placed in the permeable zone in connection with a water flooding operation, the consolidated solids pack diverts the injectant from the permeable zone to other less permeable zones of the reservoir that contain oil.

  • Patent number: 11090411
    Abstract: A method of making an electron beam irradiated osteoinductive implant is provided. The method comprises exposing an osteoinductive implant containing demineralized bone matrix (DBM) fibers to electron beam radiation at a dose of from about 10 kilograys to 100 kilograys for a period of time. The electron beam irradiation reduces microorganisms in the osteoinductive implant, and the electron beam irradiated osteoinductive implant retains osteoinductive properties. Methods of implantation and an irradiated osteoinductive implant are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210243498
    Abstract: A recommendation engine generates contextually relevant media programs tailored to the specific context of the user. The recommendation engine interfaces with one or more Internet-of-Things (IoT) appliances to determine one or more food items stored within the IoT appliance(s) and/or one or more cooking capabilities associated with the IoT appliance(s). The recommendation engine also gathers profile data that reflects a set of preferences associated with the user. Based on the gathered data, the recommendation engine queries a database of cooking program data associated with various cooking programs. The recommendation engine obtains cooking program data that is contextually relevant to the user and then generates a contextual cooking program that describes how to perform a given recipe. During playback of the contextual cooking program, the recommendation engine can modify the contextual cooking program based on the progress of the user in following the recipe.
