Publication number: US20220014597A1
Application number: 17/484,309

Abstract:
A computer-implemented system and method for distributed activity detection is provided. Contextual data collected for a user performing an activity is processed on a mobile computing device. The mobile computing device extracts features from the contextual data and compares the features with a set of models. Each model represents an activity. A confidence score is assigned to each model based on the comparison with the features and the mobile computing device transmits the features to a server when the confidence scores for the models are low. The server trains a new model using the features and sends the new model to the mobile computing device.

Publication number: US20220001173A1
Application number: 17/480,861

Abstract:
A neuromodulator includes an electromagnetic (EM) wave generator configured to generate EM waves remote from a patient and to direct the EM waves to one or more target regions within the patient. Frequencies of the EM waves fall outside a range of frequencies that activates neurons. Intersection of the EM waves in each target region creates envelope-modulated electric and magnetic fields having one or more frequencies that fall within the range of frequencies that activates neurons. The neuromodulator includes control circuitry configured to control parameters of the EM waves produced by the EM wave generator. The neuromodulator may use feedback based on one or more of patient input and/or sensing of physiological signals in order to close the loop and control the EM waves.

Publication number: US20210391692A1
Application number: 17/460,499

Abstract:
A method of forming a laser involves forming, on a substrate, a first epitaxial part of the laser that includes at least an active region layer surrounded by first and second waveguide layers. A dielectric layer is formed over the first epitaxial part. Two or more mask openings are patterned within the dielectric layer. The mask openings extend normal to a light-propagation direction of the laser and are spaced apart in the light-propagation direction of the laser. A second epitaxial part of the laser is formed in the mask openings using selective area epitaxy. The second epitaxial part includes a refractive grating with three-dimensional grating features.
