  • Publication number: 20220198332
    Abstract: A system and associated methods for decentralized attribution of GAN models is disclosed. Given a group of models derived from the same dataset and published by different users, attributability is achieved when a public verification service associated with each model (a linear classifier) returns positive only for outputs of that model. Each model is parameterized by keys distributed by a registry. The keys are computed from first-order sufficient conditions for decentralized attribution. The keys are orthogonal or opposite to each other and belong to a subspace dependent on the data distribution and the architecture of the generative model.

  • Patent number: 11361678
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to a system and method for surgical training with low cost, reusable materials and a highly customizable virtual environment for skill-building. According to various embodiments, a surgical training tool is usable in conjunction with a support structure configured to at least partially constrain the tool movement. Meanwhile, the tool is tracked in real-time with off-tool detectors to generate a tool path driving a virtual rendering of the surgical training tool in an operative environment. The virtual rendering may be visually observable via a display device and may include a customizable and/or selectable operative environment with one or more structures that can be operated on by the virtual surgical training tool. By tracking the virtual tool interaction with the virtual structures, a task path may be established for documenting and/or objectively assessing the performance of one or more operative tasks.
