  • Patent number: 10726956
    Abstract: The fever epidemic detection system comprises a detection module, a control module and a communication module. The detection module measures and obtains a body-temperature measured value. The control module comprises a first operation unit, a determination unit and an alert unit. The first operation unit receives and calibrates the body-temperature measured value with a calibration factor, and generates a body-temperature calibrated value. The determination unit receives and determines whether the body-temperature calibrated value is within a preset normal body-temperature range and generates a determination result. The alert unit receives the determination result. The communication module transmits data to an external device. The alert unit generates a first alerting message, if the determination result shows that the body-temperature calibrated value is not within a preset normal body-temperature range.

  • Patent number: 10719803
    Abstract: A historical scenario and historical decisions made in the historical scenario are received. The historical decisions represent a set of decision variables of an objective function. A random set of decision variables having different values than the set of decision variables are generated. To determine a weight setting associated with multiple objectives of the objective function, a number of inequalities are built and solved with an assumption that, for an optimization that minimizes the objective function, the objective function having the set of random decision variables has a larger value than the objective function having the set of decision variables. The receiving, the generating and the building steps may be repeated to determine multiple sets of weight settings. The multiple sets of weight settings are searched to select a target weight setting for each of the multiple objectives. The target weight setting may be automatically and continuously learned.
