  • Patent number: 11568634
    Abstract: A computing system receives, from a client device, an image of a content item uploaded by a user of the client devices. The computing system divides the image into one or more overlapping patches. The computing system identifies, via a first machine learning model, one or more distortions present in the image based on the image and the one or more overlapping patches. The computing system determines that the image meets a threshold level of quality. Responsive to the determining, the computing system corrects, via a second machine learning model, the one or more distortions present in the image based on the image and the one or more overlapping patches. Each patch of the one or more overlapping patches are corrected. The computing system reconstructs the image of the content item based on the one or more corrected overlapping patches.

  • Patent number: 11547315
    Abstract: A spectrally encoded flow cytometry (SEFC) technique for imaging blood in the microcirculation. Since the dependency of one of the axes of the image on time prevents effective quantification of essential clinical parameters, the optical path in an SEFC system is split into two parallel imaging lines, followed by data analysis for recovering the flow speed from the multiplexed data. The data analysis may be auto-correlation of a pair of images obtained from a sequence of images of the imaged blood vessel.

  • Patent number: 11544320
    Abstract: A method performed by a computing device includes obtaining a set of image segment identigens for image segments of an image to produce sets of image segment identigens. A set of image segment identigens is a set of possible interpretations of a first image segment of the image segments. The method further includes identifying a subset of valid image segment identigens of each set of image segment identigens by applying identigen rules to the sets of image segment identigens to produce subsets of valid image segment identigens. Each valid image segment identigen of a subset of valid image segment identigens represents a most likely interpretation of a corresponding image segment. The method further includes generating an image entigen group utilizing the subsets of valid image segment identigens, where the image entigen group represents a most likely interpretation of the image.

  • Patent number: 11544824
    Abstract: Described are methods and devices for applying a color gamut mapping process on a first image to generate a second image, where the content of the first and second images is similar but the respective color spaces of the first and second images are different. The color gamut mapping process may be controlled using a color gamut mapping mode obtained from a bitstream where the color gamut mapping mode belongs to a set comprising at least two preset modes and an explicit parameters mode. If the obtained color gamut mapping mode is the explicit parameters mode and the color gamut mapping process is not enabled for the explicit parameters mode, the color gamut mapping process may be controlled by a substitute color gamut mapping mode determined from additional data.
