Post-provisioning Authentication Protocols
Patent No. 12008550
More effective authentication protocols for provisioning electronic devices are provided. An approval signal responsive to a provisioning request may be transmitted in real-time, such as under four seconds in certain embodiments. An authentication score for the provisioning request may be calculated even after transmitting the approval signal. In certain embodiments, information gathered from the successful provisioning of a device can be used in the authentication scoring process. Authentication scores deemed to fall below a requisite threshold may be used to suspend the provisioned device, therefore, limit the ability for the device to utilize the account, however, without withdrawing the approval or granted digital token. Certain implementations may negate the need to transmit further approvals or confirmations following determining an authentication score met a threshold.

Safety Shutdown Systems And Methods For LNG, Crude Oil Refineries, Petrochemical Plants, And Other Facilities
Patent No. 12007132
Methods and systems for maintaining an atmosphere inside a habitat enclosing a work station and shutting down one, more than one, or all operational equipment inside and/or outside the habitat upon the occurrence of an adverse event. Concentrations of explosive, flammable, and/or poisonous gases or vapors are sensed, transmitted to a logic device, as are temperature, pressure, and/or humidity. HVAC units and air extraction units controlled by the logic device maintain acceptable pressure, temperature, and/or humidity. Any grit and dust may be extracted. Any explosive, flammable, and/or poisonous gases or vapors are extracted employing an emergency gas extraction sub-system controlled by the logic device. The logic device shuts down one, more than one, or all operational equipment inside and/or outside the habitat (for example as dictated by the client, law, or regulation) upon receiving one or more adverse event signals.

Low Temperature Formation Of Perovskite Films In Supercritical Fluids
Patent No. 12006574
Crystallization of perovskite films was performed in supercritical carbon dioxide with and without organic co-solvents. Post deposition crystallization of the films was performed in a binary, single phase supercritical fluid at constant conditions (45? C., 1200 psi) but with varying organic co-solvent volume fractions up to 2%. The co-solvents can provide selective interactions with one or both of the perovskite precursor compounds resulting in different film morphologies ranging from uniform films containing large grains to films exhibiting large cubic or hexagonal crystals or preferential crystallographic orientations. The use of supercritical fluids to enhance or tune crystallization in solid-state thin films could have broad applications toward the realization of high efficiency photovoltaic devices.

Systems And Methods For Modeling Computer Resource Metrics
Patent No. 12007869
In some embodiments, a plurality of devices may be respectively mapped to a plurality of interaction types. Statistical models may be generated, where the statistical models are indicative of relationships between aggregated interaction data related to the interaction types and aggregated resource utilization data related to the devices. With respect to each interaction type of the interaction types, the statistical models may be scored based on strength of one or more of the relationships. A subset of the statistical models may be selected based on the scoring for the interaction types. As an example, a first statistical model is included in the subset based on the scoring related to a first interaction type and a second statistical model is included in the subset based on the scoring related to a second interaction type different from the first interaction type. One or more of the devices may be remapped to one or more interaction types based on the selected subset of the statistical models.

Post deposition crystallization of the films was performed in a binary, single phase supercritical fluid at constant conditions (45? C., 1200 psi) but with varying organic co-solvent volume fractions up to 2%. The co-solvents can provide selective interactions with one or both of the perovskite precursor compounds resulting in different film morphologies ranging from uniform films containing large grains to films exhibiting large cubic or hexagonal crystals or preferential crystallographic orientations. The use of supercritical fluids to enhance or tune crystallization in solid-state thin films could have broad applications toward the realization of high efficiency photovoltaic devices.

Systems And Methods For Modeling Computer Resource Metrics
Patent No. 12007869
In some embodiments, a plurality of devices may be respectively mapped to a plurality of interaction types. Statistical models may be generated, where the statistical models are indicative of relationships between aggregated interaction data related to the interaction types and aggregated resource utilization data related to the devices. With respect to each interaction type of the interaction types, the statistical models may be scored based on strength of one or more of the relationships. A subset of the statistical models may be selected based on the scoring for the interaction types. As an example, a first statistical model is included in the subset based on the scoring related to a first interaction type and a second statistical model is included in the subset based on the scoring related to a second interaction type different from the first interaction type. One or more of the devices may be remapped to one or more interaction types based on the selected subset of the statistical models.
