  • Publication number: 20210081171
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to fuse multiple database tables together. The fields of the database tables may be normalized using semantic fields. Under a first approach, database tables are deduplicated by consolidating redundant records. This may be done by performing pairwise comparisons to identify related pairs of records and then clustering the related pairs of records. Then, the deduplicated database tables are merged by performing another pairwise comparison. Under a second approach, the database tables may be concatenated. Thereafter, records are subject to pairwise comparisons and then clustered to create a merged database table.

  • Patent number: 10922337
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates clustering similar data records together in a hierarchical clustering scheme. Each tier in a cluster corresponds to a minimal match score, which reflects a degree of confidence. A hierarchical cluster ID is generated for respective data records. The hierarchical cluster ID may be made up of a series of values, wherein each value reflects a tier within the hierarchical clustering scheme. A user may enter a partial hierarchical cluster ID to select clusters associated with a lower confidence. Thus, in some embodiments, the hierarchical cluster ID is variable in length in a manner that corresponds to the tiers in the hierarchical clustering scheme.

  • Publication number: 20210025815
    Abstract: Provided is a near-infrared spectroscopy-based method for chemical pattern recognition of the authenticity of the traditional Chinese medicine Gleditsiae Spina. The method uses the combination of a near-infrared spectroscopy acquisition method, a 1st derivative pretreatment method and a successive projection algorithm, a Kennard-Stone algorithm and a marching algorithm to perform chemical pattern recognition on the authenticity of the Gleditsiae Spina. The results of the pattern recognition method are accurate and reliable, and Gleditsiae Spina and counterfeits thereof can be accurately distinguished. The present application is the first to establish a method for the chemical pattern recognition of the quality of Gleditsiae Spina based on near-infrared spectroscopy, and can accurately distinguish between Gleditsiae Spina and counterfeits thereof, and provides scientific basis for the quality evaluation of Gleditsiae Spina.

  • Publication number: 20200367750
    Abstract: A system for monitoring an ablation procedure in a target tissue includes a first light source for delivering light to the target tissue to generate photoacoustic signals and a second light source for delivering light to the target tissue for ablation therapy. The system further includes a beam mixer for receiving light from the first and second light sources to create a combined light beam. An ablation catheter including a single optical fiber receives the combined light beam from the beam mixer, wherein the combined light beam is emitted from a tip of the ablation catheter to perform simultaneous ablation therapy and photoacoustic monitoring of the ablation procedure in the target tissue in real time.

  • Publication number: 20200349136
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates clustering similar data records together in a hierarchical clustering scheme. Each tier in a cluster corresponds to a minimal match score, which reflects a degree of confidence. In this respect, a higher confidence may lead to smaller sized clusters while a lower confidence may lead to larger sized clusters. Ordinal classification may be used to generate hierarchical clusters. In some embodiments, hierarchical clustering with conflict resolution is used to resolve user-defined hard conflicts in each tier of the clustering results.

    Abstract: A spiral flute tap includes a body having an axial forward end and an axial rearward end. The body has a cylindrical shank portion adjacent the axial rearward end, a threaded fluted portion adjacent the axial forward end, a non-threaded fluted portion between the cylindrical shank portion and the threaded fluted portion, and a central, longitudinal axis. The spiral flute tap further includes a plurality of helical flutes formed at a helix angle, HA, with respect to the central, longitudinal axis of the tap that continuously increases in magnitude in the threaded fluted portion. In other words, the lead of the plurality of helical flutes continuously decreases in magnitude in a rearward direction for a predetermined distance. In one example, the helix angle, HA, varies at a rate of between 0.5 degrees/mm to 4.0 degrees/mm. A method of making the spiral flute tap is also disclosed.
