||WO||WO/2014/189481 - OBJECT MIGRATION BETWEEN CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS||27.11.2014||
||PCT/US2013/041779||EMPIRE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, LLC||FRANK, Alexander|
Technologies are generally described for a system for migrating an application between cloud environments such as datacenters. In some examples, an application hosted at a source cloud may be moved from the source cloud to the destination cloud by migrating one or more objects at a time from the source to the destination cloud while maintaining the application up and running by intercepting and redirecting requests to a source or destination depending on where related objects reside. Example objects may be data structures, attributes and associated behaviors that encapsulate the application. Migration of the objects may be facilitated by enumerating and serializing the objects, and loading subsets of one or more serialized objects at the destination datacenter. An object migration module may keep track of objects in transit, and may direct requests for transferred objects to the destination cloud for maintaining continued access to the application.

||PCT/US2013/041793||INTEL CORPORATION||YANG, Lei|
Various embodiments are generally directed to techniques to merge a virtual map derived from sensors of computing devices moved about an interior of a structure with a corresponding physical map. An apparatus to merge maps includes a processor component; and a merged map generator for execution by the processor component to merge a virtual map and a physical map to generate a merged map, the virtual map comprising indications of virtual pathways through an interior of a structure based on sensors, and the physical map comprising indications of physical pathways of the interior. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

||PCT/US2013/041864||INTEL CORPORATION||ROHAN, Chandra|
Technologies for improving the accuracy of depth camera images include a computing device to generate a foreground mask and a background mask for an image generated by a depth camera. The computing device identifies areas of a depth image of a depth channel of the generated image having unknown depth values as one of interior depth holes or exterior depth holes based on the foreground and background masks. The computing device fills at least a portion of the interior depth holes of the depth image based on depth values of areas of the depth image within a threshold distance of the corresponding portion of the interior depth holes. Similarly, the computing device fills at least a portion of the exterior depth holes of the depth image based on depth values of areas of the depth image within the threshold distance of the corresponding portion of the exterior depth holes.

||PCT/US2013/041865||INTEL CORPORATION||BARON, Charles|
Technologies for cloud-based media search and editing include a video editor configured to build a media query and associate the media query with a dynamic content slot of a media program. When generating video output based on the media program, the video editor transmits the media query to a cloud analytics server and receives 5 search results identifying one or more media clips produced by a number of mobile computing devices. The video editor may display a list of clips for selection by the user or may automatically include one of the clips in the output. The cloud analytics server transmits an acceptance policy defining criteria for acceptable media, based on the media query, to the mobile computing devices. The mobile computing devices configure 10 capture settings according to the acceptance policy and may display a user interface to assist the user in capturing acceptable media. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

||PCT/US2013/042275||YELLIN, Nadav||YELLIN, Nadav|
A prosthesis secures a replacement valve in a heart. The prosthesis includes a radially expandable inflow section and outflow section, and migration blocker rods. The inflow section has a tapered shape and is implanted within an atrium of a heart adjacent a native valve annulus. The outflow section couples to the inflow section, and is configured to be implanted through the native valve annulus and at least partially within a ventricle of the heart. The migration blocker rods extend circumferentially around at least a portion of the outflow section and hold native leaflets of the heart valve. In a contracted configuration, the prosthesis may be implanted through a catheter into the heart. In an expanded configuration, the tapered shape of the inflow section in the atrium cooperates with the migration blockers in the ventricle to hold the prosthesis against the native valve annulus.
