    Abstract: Technologies are provided for determining an individual's likelihood of relapsing into prior behavior subsequent to a treatment for a mental health or addiction disorder, and in some instances predicting a likelihood time frame for such a relapse. Target subjects having a risk of addiction relapse, non-adherence to a treatment program, or absconding, may be automatically identified based on a multiplicative-regression model for relative survival (MRS) that is developed for predicting risk or likelihood of relapse or non-adherence. Further, in some embodiments, a leading indicator of near-term future abnormalities may be provided thereby proactively notifying supervisory personnel responsible for the person and providing such personnel with timely notice to enable effective corrective, preventive, or trend-modifying maneuvers to be undertaken.

  • Patent number: 10235753
    Abstract: A method for automatic recognition of at least one anatomical landmark in a hollow organ of a patient is provided. The method includes providing an image dataset of the hollow organ, establishing or providing a three-dimensional mesh of a surface of the hollow organ from the image dataset, and determining a centerline of the mesh by skeletization. At least one feature is determined for each of a plurality of points on the centerline. A classifier pre-trained on the at least one feature is used for detecting candidates for the at least one anatomical landmark from the plurality of points. The candidates are grouped together with a distance from one another below a threshold. At least one specification determined from the anatomy of the hollow organ is used for confirming or rejecting the candidates for the at least one anatomical landmark. One or more candidates are defined as an anatomical landmark.

  • Patent number: 10021207
    Abstract: Features are disclosed for generating bundles of content items and proactively providing the bundles to client devices. The bundles may be provided to client devices in response to requests for the content page that references the content items in the bundle, or in response to a request for a content page hosted by the same domain as the content items in the bundle. A browser module executing on the client device can extract the referenced content items in the bundle and cache them in a local content cache at the client device prior to the client device receiving and processing a requested content page. As a result, the browser module may have access to cached versions of referenced content items when processing the requested content page even if the referenced content items were not present when the requested content page was requested.

  • Patent number: 9965522
    Abstract: Disclosed is a technique for providing a linkage between applications, or other digital content, of an application store by assigning values to users of the digital content with respect to a particular user who is submitting a query for particular digital content. The technique involves receiving a query and identifying a subset of digital content based on the query and a word matching technique. For each identified digital content, users who have installed or downloaded the digital content may be determined. A reputation score, corresponding to a user's influence, and a trust score, corresponding to a degree of separation between the user who submitted the query and other users who have installed the digital content, may be computed for each of the users. A list of recommended applications may be generated based on the word matching technique, the reputation score, and the trust score.

  • Patent number: 9948735
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a mobile device determines sensor signals from one or more sensors of the mobile device, the sensor signals indicating motion that is associated with activities of a user of the mobile device. The mobile device determines activity types that correspond to at least a portion of the determined sensor signals. The mobile device determines activity periods of the user, each activity period corresponding to a period of time for one of the determined activity types. The mobile device then performs a heuristics-type analysis based on the length of time for each activity period and the corresponding activity types to determine whether two or more activity periods should be combined into a single activity period. The determined activity types are displayed on the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 9948734
    Abstract: In one embodiment, sensor signals corresponding to motions of a client device are received. Activities of a user corresponding to the client device are determined, based on a first analysis algorithm that uses the sensor signals to select activity types, each activity type corresponding to a particular time period. A reference to the selected activity types is sent to the client device. User input indicating whether the reference is correct is received from the client device. Based on the indication, which reflects the accuracy of the first analysis algorithm, a priority between the first analysis algorithm and a second analysis algorithm is determined, based on determining which analysis algorithm is more accurate.

  • Patent number: 9925393
    Abstract: An apparatus for determining a contour of a treatment region in a patient includes a computer processor to receive input regarding a contour of at least one organ-at-risk (OAR) adjacent to the treatment region; receive input regarding an initial contour of the treatment region; predict a radiation toxicity to the at least one OAR based on the contour of the at least one OAR, the initial contour of the treatment region, and a radiation treatment regimen; determine whether the predicted radiation toxicity exceeds a threshold; and determine a contour of the treatment region by iteratively modifying the initial contour of the treatment region, and any subsequent modified contours of the treatment region, until a stopping condition is satisfied. The stopping condition can be a preselected number of iterations or that the predicted radiation toxicity using the contour in place of the initial contour is first calculated is below said threshold.

  • Patent number: 9836526
    Abstract: A table structure corresponding to the table is selected to describe when cells in a cell-pair in the table structure should be similar to one another. A cell similarity function is selected to compare the cells in the cell-pair and output a probability that the cell-pair includes cells that contain values that are similar to one another according to a criteria. A cell similarity probability is determined of a first cell and a second cell in a first cell-pair in the table structure being similar to each other according to the cell similarity function. A computed probability is adjusted of the table structure representing the table using the cell similarity probability. The computed probability is indicated as a probability of a first model representing the table, wherein the first model is a function of the table structure and the selected cell similarity function.
