  • Patent number: 10081366
    Abstract: The system described herein provides a sensor-based assessment of attention interruptibility. In a driving scenario, this system solves a persistent safety issue with regard to dangerous interruptions as they increase driver workload and reduce performance on the primary driving task. Being able to identify when a driver is interruptible is critical for building systems that can mediate these interruptions. The present invention utilizes sensor data collected from wearable devices and on-board diagnostics which can be used as input to build a machine learning classifier that can determine driver interruptibility in real-time.

    Abstract: In some implementations, a system adaptively adapts engagement between a user and an application based on prior user interactions and context data associated with the user. A performance category for which performance is tracked for a user of the application is initially identified. Context data indicating a current context of the user is received from a client device associated with the user. One or more responsiveness scores indicating actions of the user with respect to the performance category following the previous communications through the application are determined. A communication is then selected from among communications of multiple types based on the context data for the user and the one or more responsiveness scores for the user. A time to provide the communication to the user is determined based on the context data. The selected communication is finally provided for output by the client device at the determined time.

  • Patent number: 10067995
    Abstract: To update a database of records having person attributes using an input record containing person attributes and authorization information, a person attribute of an input record is compared to a person attribute for each record in the database, and records in the database are identified as matched records. A composite record is created from the input record and the matched record. A portion of the input record is written to the database if the authorization information contains either an authorized provider ID or a prior-use indicator. An output record is thus generated consisting of the input record and authorization information containing a prior-use indicator. A cascade of a first instance and a second instance wherein the database comprises a first database in the first instance and a second database in the second instance may be performed.

  • Patent number: 10061888
    Abstract: Apparatus and associated methods may relate to a system for predicting a respirator fit by comparing a respirator model in a deformed state to a specific facial model. In an illustrative example, an internal measurement may be calculated between an inside part of the respirator model and the facial model. The internal measurement may be compared against a predetermined threshold to determine a fit of the respirator model, for example. In various implementations, the internal measurement may be a distance and/or a volume between the respirator and facial model. In some implementations, a 3D representation of the respirator model may be displayed upon a 3D representation of the facial model. In some implementations, a color-coded facial display may characterize areas of comfort and discomfort with respect to the respirator model. For example, areas of comfort and discomfort may be objectively determined in view of an applied pressure by the respirator.

  • Patent number: 10058247
    Abstract: A multipurpose diagnostic examination apparatus includes a diagnosis control unit (DCU), an attachment unit, and an image capture device (ICD). The attachment unit is detachably connected to and extends from a front end of the DCU. A microcontroller of the DCU receives and processes actuation signals from trigger elements of the DCU to indicate actions to be performed by the ICD removably connected to a camera module of the DCU, and/or by a medical diagnostic device (MDD) connected to the DCU via the attachment unit. The microcontroller facilitates transmission of diagnostic image data captured by the ICD and processed by the camera module, and diagnostic examination data from the MDD, to a medical diagnostic examination system (MDES) accessible on a local user device via a connector interface of the DCU. The MDES, in communication with a remote user device over a communication network, facilitates remote viewing, selection, and diagnostic examinations.

  • Patent number: 10055547
    Abstract: A quality of medical care can be estimated based on factors such as a mortality rate or complications rate. However, by this point, poor care may have already reached its consequence. In some embodiments, characteristics pertaining to a care experience are analyzed to identify those predictive of a health result. The identified characteristics may include ones that depend on care factors, such that they are not, alone, easy to manipulate. Those characteristics can then be monitored, and unsatisfactory characteristics can be addressed.
