  • Publication number: 20220004345
    Abstract: A system and method for identification and location of user identified, feature specific printers works in conjunction with a user's smartphone or tablet computer. A user inputs their desired printer features into their device, and a listing of candidate printers within a search perimeter is rendered. A distance between the user device and each candidate printer is calculated from a determined location user device relative to locations of each of the candidate printers. The user selects their desired printer from the candidates, and directions for the user to walk to the selected printer are generated and displayed.

  • Patent number: 11210349
    Abstract: A document review system is configured to quickly provide search results for large amounts of documents. Ontology templates are used to generate objects and links based on the documents. Users can view documents, and linked objects and object properties can be displayed. An index assisted search can be performed to determine the linked objects and object properties. A supplemental search can be performed on a second database that tracks modifications to the documents or objects. The modifications in the second database can be periodically written to the first database, and the index can be rebuilt. The user experience can be free of slow searches and slow index rebuilds.

  • Patent number: 11206244
    Abstract: A method and video decoder system using the method are provided for identifying video frames in an encoded or encrypted video stream without performing decoding or decryption. The method includes: receiving a video data stream comprised of a plurality of transport stream (TS) packets; detecting a first video frame in the video data stream, wherein detection of the first video frame includes registering a last checked position at the start of the video data stream, examining bytes in a next TS packet to identify a predetermined pattern indicating a network abstraction layer (NAL) unit, repeating the examining step until two TS packets have been identified that include an NAL unit, wherein the last checked position is updated after each examining step, and identifying a video frame based on a position of the NAL unit identified in the two TS packets; and repeating the detecting step for a plurality of additional video frames in the video data stream.

  • Publication number: 20210252325
    Abstract: A resistance-generating device includes a resilient body extending between opposed ends. The resilient body has a first portion extending between first and second mounting members of the device, and a second portion extending between the first and second mounting members. The first portion is spaced apart from the second portion, and the first and second mounting members are made of an inelastic material. At least one of the first and second mounting members is removably mountable to a corresponding one of the first and second mounting members of another resistance-generating device. The resilient body generates resistance upon the first and second portions being elastically deformed by displacement of the second mounting member mounted to a second structure relative to the first mounting member mounted to a first structure.

  • Publication number: 20210231455
    Abstract: An augmented reality system and method for mobile device discovery with indoor and outdoor navigation includes a user device with a processor, memory, a touchscreen user interface and a wireless data interface. The processor generates a map display on the touchscreen including indicia illustrating a position of each of a plurality of MFPs on an associated premises. The processor receives a user selection of an indicia via the touchscreen and displays data corresponding to a status of a selected MFP associated with the user selected indicia. The processor receives a second user selection associated with the user selected indicia via the touchscreen and displays navigation data corresponding to navigation to the selected MFP.

  • Patent number: 10962002
    Abstract: Overheating of a process liquid retained in a reservoir of a multiphase pump during extended gas slugs is avoided by circulating a cooling liquid in thermal contact with a process liquid through an external cooling apparatus, which can include a heat exchanger. In some embodiments, process liquid from the reservoir is circulated through the cooling loop, while in other embodiments a separate cooling liquid is circulated between a reservoir heat exchanger and the external cooling apparatus. The liquid in the cooling loop can be circulated by a separate cooling pump, or process liquid can be circulated through the cooling loop due to a pressure differential between an inlet and an outlet of the cooling loop within the multiphase pump. The multiphase pump can be a twin screw pump, and the reservoir can be formed between outer and inner casings of the multiphase pump.

  • Publication number: 20200410551
    Abstract: Techniques for suggesting targeting criteria for a content delivery campaign are provided. An affinity score representing an affinity between the attribute values of each pair of multiple pairs of attribute values is computed. First input indicating a particular attribute value for a particular attribute type is received through a user interface for creating a content delivery campaign. The user interface includes fields for inputting attribute values for multiple attribute types that includes the particular attribute type. In response to the first input and based on affinity scores associated with the particular attribute value, a set of suggested attribute values is identified. The user interface is updated to include the set of suggested attribute values. Second input indicating a selection of a particular suggested attribute value is received. The particular suggested attribute value is added to the content delivery campaign.

  • Patent number: 10867284
    Abstract: A machine may be configured to generate recruitment leads based on targeted content. For example, the machine causes a presentation of an item of digital media in a user interface of a first device associated with a member of a social networking service. The member may be targeted for the presentation of the item of digital media. The machine, based on the presentation of the item to the member, accesses an event message pertaining to an interaction by the member with the item of digital media. The machine, based on the event message, identifies an indication of interest by the member in a content of the item. The machine generates a communication pertaining to the interest by the member in the content of the item. The machine transmits the communication to a second device associated with a recruiter.

  • Patent number: 10821383
    Abstract: An apparatus and method prevent entrained solids from entering a pump by directing a process stream through an active upstream filter that removes the solids, and then through a downstream idle filter where the process stream purges the filter of previously retained solids. The flow path is periodically switched to exchange the roles of the filters, so that none of the filters is saturated, and the solids remain in the process flow but bypass the pump. Any need for a low pressure destination for purged solids and purging fluid and/or any environmental impact of dumping process fluid and solids into the environment is thereby avoided. Partially opened valves can be used to divert only part of the downstream flow for filter purging. Selectable paths can be included for which no filters are purged. The downstream flow can be divided and used to simultaneously purge a plurality of idle filters.

  • Patent number: 10322416
    Abstract: A sensor detects the presence of an upper cup in a pair of cups, between which pills are crushed by machine. Operation of the crushing machine is prevented if the upper cup is absent, and enabled if the upper cup is present. The sensor may be a photodiode that is sensitive to a beam of laser light that is directed over the lower cup. The beam passes when the upper cup is absent and is blocked by the upper cup when present. An optional sensor may be included to detect whether the drawer containing the cups and pills is closed, which is used as a further condition that must be satisfied before crushing can be started. Also, an interlock can be included to prevent the drawer from opening during the crushing process. By ensuring the presence of the upper cup, the escape of powdered medication can be prevented.
