  • Patent number: 12002081
    Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating product preferences and/or product recommendations are disclosed. Biometric data of the subject are taken into account by the systems and methods in order to determine product preferences and/or product recommendations. Other factors of the subject, although optional, may be also taken into account while determining product preferences and/or product recommendations for a subject. These product preferences or recommendations can be presented to the subject, either automatically via a display device or with assistance from a product consultant. To obtain the biometric data, the subject will be exposed to a number of stimuli, such as fragrance/scent stimuli. Biometric data will then be collected from the subject based on her response to this fragrance/scent stimuli. In some examples, the collected biometric data relates to a subject's event-related potential (ERP)—the measured brain response that is the direct result of a specific sensory, cognitive, or motor event.

In some aspects, the method includes acquiring physiological data from a subject over a sleep period using sensors positioned about the subject, and assembling the physiological data into time-series datasets. The method also includes selecting a temporal window in which signals associated with the time-series datasets are substantially stationary, computing a time bandwidth product based on a selected spectral resolution and the selected temporal window, and determining a number of tapers using the computed time bandwidth product. The method further includes computing a spectrogram using the determined number of tapers and the time-series datasets, analyzing the spectrogram to identify signatures of sleep in the subject, and generating, using the identified signatures, a report indicative of sleep states of the subject.

  • Patent number: 11540759
    Abstract: There are described headphones comprising earcups to be placed about ears of a user, with a headband linking the earcups and to be extending above a head of the user. A flexible band distinct from the headband is secured below the headband for contact with the head of the user. Removable headband sensors are embedded in the flexible band and have a portion thereof protruding downwardly from the flexible band to reach the scalp. The flexible band has a flexibility which makes the flexible band deform under the weight of the earcups to conform with the head of the user to ensure high quality contact between the headband electrodes and the scalp. There are further provided earcup electrodes on the earcups for contact with a region on or behind an ear of the user. Signals from the electrodes can be used for different purposes such as concentration monitoring and feedback.

  • Patent number: 11544404
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to systems and methods that enable access control for digital objects based on measured physiological signals of a user. A method of operation of a human mind interface (HMI) system includes measuring, via a physiological sensor of a HMI device, a brain pattern of a user while the user retrieves a digital object after training. The method includes identifying, via a processor of the HMI device, the measured brain pattern stored in a memory of the HMI device, and determining, via the processor, the digital object stored in the memory that is associated with the identified brain pattern. The method includes accessing, via the processor, the digital object and retrieving information contained in the digital object and providing, via the processor of the HMI device, the information contained in the digital object to a recipient on behalf of the user.

  • Patent number: 11537908
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods for dynamically determining a discipline-specific knowledge value of an agent. In one example, the method may include receiving from an agent, via a computing device, a formulation of content that corresponds to an inquiry, determining a knowledge value for the agent based on one or more of the content and a property of the inquiry with respect to a dynamically defined solution to the inquiry, and storing the determined knowledge value of the agent within a storage device.

  • Patent number: 11511115
    Abstract: Systems and method may be used for interfacing with a patient. Systems may include a plurality of electrodes in electrical communication with a processor. The processor may be configured to receive sense signals from electrodes and to determine the reliability of the received signal. A test tone signal comprising a test tone frequency may be applied, and the magnitude of the test tone frequency may be analyzed in the received signal. If it is determined that the magnitude of the test tone frequency is below a threshold, the system may take action, such as lowering the gain on an amplifier. Stimulation signals may be applied to the patient at a stimulation frequency simultaneously with one or both of receiving sense signals and providing the test tone signal.

  • Patent number: 11507924
    Abstract: A system and method for identifying individuals that compatibly contribute to high-performing teams is disclosed. Teams may range in size and complexity from a two-person team of roommates to many hundreds in a commercial product development team. Candidates for new or existing teams are identified by matching brainwave response of candidates to the brainwave signature of high-performing, compatible teams. The stimuli of stimulus datasets are rapidly presented to candidates and sensed by any of the five human senses. The signature of a team type is a set of brainwave response characteristics extracted from one or more high-performing, compatible exemplar teams presented with the stimulus dataset and is also distinctly different from other team types or the general population. Closeness of fit between a candidate's brainwave response and the signature of the exemplar team provides an indication of the likely compatible fit and contribution of a candidate to a high-performing team.

  • Patent number: 11500463
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for controlling electronic devices based on detected brain activity. For example, a system includes a wearable over-the-ear electronic device has a set of dry EEG sensors, a camera, a processor, and programming instructions. The programming instructions cause the processor to receive images from the camera, process the images to identify features corresponding to a known device, and receive brain-wave signals from the EEG sensors. The system compares the brain-wave signals to measure a level of brain activity. Upon detection of both (a) a feature corresponding to the known device and (b) a level of brain activity that deviates from a baseline by at least a threshold level, the system generates a command signal configured to cause the known device to actuate and transmits the command signal to a controller for the known device.
