  • Patent number: 11042808
    Abstract: Predicting probable activity consequences is provided. Information is collected from data sources to identify various activities. Patterns of how any identified activity is linked with a corresponding event are detected based on analyzing the information. The patterns are indexed with data having a relationship to a particular event. Activity context information associated with a set of identified activities corresponding to the particular event is extracted from the information. A cognitive model of how the set of identified activities corresponding to the particular event are related to a set of activity consequences is generated. Probable activity consequences with degree of severity corresponding to the activity context information is predicted based on the cognitive model. A recommendation to perform a set of action steps to reduce impact of the probable activity consequences on different aspects of the activity context information associated with the set of identified activities is generated.

  • Patent number: 10138987
    Abstract: A speed reducer used in a server is disclosed to include a first planetary gear set, a planet gear carrier, an internal gear surrounding the first planetary gear set, and an output gear. The first planet gear includes a first sun gear mounted on the motor output shaft, at least one first planet gear pivotally coupled at the first planet gear carrier and meshed with the first sun gear and the internal gear for driving the first planet gear carrier and the output gear to rotate. Thus, the first planetary gear set reduces the revolving speed of the rotary driving force outputted by the motor output shaft, and effectively transfer the rotary driving force to the output gear, achieving the advantages of low backlash and long service life, reducing power transfer loss, increasing server output torque, and providing high speed ratio, high design flexibility and high assembly yields.

  • Patent number: 9800113
    Abstract: A modularized servo case includes a hollow first barrel and a hollow second barrel, each of which has a lower opening at a bottom end thereof. The first barrel and the second barrel have a first connecting portion and a second connecting portion disposed on outer surfaces thereof, respectively. The first and second barrels can be combined together by engagement between the first connecting portion and the second connecting portion. In this way, the different inner components required for the first and second barrels can be separately installed beforehand by modularization, and then the first and second barrels can be assembled. Therefore, the assembly is preferably convenient and the inner components can be assembled simultaneously, thus enhancing the whole production capacity and efficiency and facilitating the disassembly procedure in the later repair and maintenance operation.

  • Patent number: 9792034
    Abstract: A method and system for transferring an image. Displayed are: (a) a graphic object representing a web page, (b) a first destination point within the graphic object and first text which is adjacent to the first destination point and describes the first destination point, and (c) a second, different destination point within the graphic object and second, different text which is adjacent to the second destination point and describes the second destination point. A user mouse selection of one of the destination points within the graphic object is received, and in response, a selected image is copied into the web page at the selected destination point. The first destination point, the first text, the second destination point, and the second text are stored in the transfer map. The selected image is mapped to the one of the destination points in the transfer map.

  • Patent number: 9680783
    Abstract: An email update system dynamically updates the content of an email when the originator of an email has sent the email, and the originator later determines that the email requires editing. The updating may take place transparent to the recipient and without the introduction of duplicative content into the recipient's email program. The email update system comprises a delta engine program and a delta temporary storage in a sender's computer, a queue manager program and an intermediate email queue in a server computer, and a recipient email retrieval program in a recipient's computer.

  • Patent number: 9590980
    Abstract: A system for automatically completing fields in online forms, such as login forms and new user registration forms, which employs a Master Cookie File containing sets of records associated with the user, his or her accounts or web sites, and registered values associated with form tags (e.g. username, password, address, email, telephone, etc.). When the user encounters another form, the MCF is automatically searched for matching values and form tags, primarily from the same account or web site, or alternatively from other accounts or sites. A flowing pop-up menu is displayed nearby the form fields from which the user can select values to automatically complete the form. Automatic account information updating, value expiration management, mapping of favorite values, and sharing of values are optional, enhanced functions of the invention.
