  • Patent number: 10789465
    Abstract: In a feature extraction and pattern matching system, image sharpening can enable vascular point detection (VPD) for detecting points of interest from visible vasculature of the eye. Pattern Histograms of Extended Multi-Radii Local Binary Patterns and/or Pattern Histograms of Extended Multi-Radii Center Symmetric Local Binary Patterns can provide description of portions of images surrounding a point of interest, and enrollment and verification templates can be generated using points detected via VPD and the corresponding descriptors. Inlier point pairs can be selected from the enrollment and verification templates, and a first match score indicating similarity of the two templates can be computed based on the number of inlier point pairs and one or more parameters of a transform selected by the inlier detection. A second match score can be computed by applying the selected transform, and either or both scores can be used to authenticate the user.

  • Patent number: 10789502
    Abstract: An extraneous-matter detecting apparatus according to an embodiment includes a first extraction unit, a second extraction unit, and a detection unit. The first extraction extracts a first pixel group of first pixels included in a captured image captured by an image capturing device. Each of the first pixels has a luminance gradient directed outward from a predetermined center region. The second extraction unit extracts a second pixel group of second pixels included in the captured image. Each of the second pixels has a luminance gradient directed inward toward the predetermined center region. The detection unit combines the first pixel group, extracted by the first extraction unit, and the second pixel group, extracted by the second extraction unit, with each other so as to detect an extraneous matter adhered to the image capturing device.

  • Patent number: 10733581
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer program products are disclosed for improving ease in initiating information transfers between devices. A user of a communications device accesses an image of a target recipient. With that recipient in view in the image, the user selects the portion of the screen where the recipient is displayed in the image. Pattern recognition is performed to extract one or more features of the selected portion of the screen as a recognized pattern. That recognized pattern is compared against multiple stored patterns that are associated with contacts in contact lists and/or other types of databases. Once a match is found, the user is prompted to confirm the identified recipient corresponding to the matching pattern and the data to transfer. Once confirmed, the data transfer is initiated based on the automatically determined recipient information.

  • Patent number: 10706255
    Abstract: In a processing method, an electronic device may detect, in a locked state, an operation performed on a fingerprint sensor, and determine a result of matching a fingerprint collected by the fingerprint sensor with a preset fingerprint, where the matching result is matching or not matching. When an included angle between a direction of a screen and a gravity direction falls beyond a preset range, the electronic device skips executing a response corresponding to the matching result. When an included angle between a direction of a screen and a gravity direction falls within a preset range, the electronic device executes a response corresponding to the matching result.
