  • Publication number: 20220068462
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to a system and method for remembering content received from a patient for future use and understood by computerized natural language processing during a chatbot therapy session. The system includes a graph of entities and relationships in an artificial memory graph data structure. The entity nodes in the graph represent entities that are related to a patient root node representing the patient. The entity nodes are connected to patient root node by one or more relationship edges that have named roles. The entity nodes and/or relationship edges can be slotted for at least a distinguishing name, a patient sentiment towards the entity and an entity state.

  • Publication number: 20220068463
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to a system and method for detecting when to diverge to a tangential conversation from a linearly structured steps of a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) session in a series of sessions for a mental health disorder. The system includes logic to determine when to merge the tangential conversation back to flow of linearly structured steps in the therapy session. The system can bookmark the last completed step in the flow of linearly structured steps of the CBT therapy session before starting the tangential conversation. The system can calculate a return to CBT session score after each succeeding utterance from the patient in the tangential conversation. The system resumes flow of the linearly structured steps of the CBT session upon detecting that the return to CBT session score has exceeded a threshold.

    Abstract: Fluoropolymer articles having a high surface roughness and high coarseness are provided. In one embodiment, a fiber is provided that has a surface roughness expressed as a peak-to-valley distance (Rt) greater than 10 micrometers and an average surface roughness (Ra) greater than 1.5 micrometers. In another embodiment, a membrane having a coarseness index ?/EBP of at least 0.3 g/cm3/psi and an air permeability of 15 ft3/ft2/min or higher is provided. The fluoropolymer articles are produced by a process that includes forming a paste-formed fluoropolymer product at a temperature lower than 50° C., densifying the paste-formed product, and then stretching the dens Pied paste-formed fluoropolymer product in at least one direction. In exemplary embodiments, the fluoropolymer may be polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a modified PTFE, a TFE copolymer, a fluorothermoplastic, a fluoroelastomer, or combinations thereof.

  • Patent number: 9994500
    Abstract: A process is disclosed for removing contaminants from an olefin stream, comprising passing the contaminated olefin stream through a first adsorbent in a thermal swing adsorption process to produce a relatively pure olefin product stream, and a regenerating gas stream containing the contaminants, passing the contaminated regenerating gas stream through a pressure swing adsorption process to yield a relatively pure regenerating gas stream, which can be redirected to the thermal swing adsorption process for regenerating the adsorbent therein.
