  • Patent number: 11354917
    Abstract: A method for detecting images of fraudulently generated or photocopied secure credential documents using texture analysis includes receiving, by one or more processors, an image of a secure credential document from a computer device. The one or more processors segment the image of the secure credential document into multiple regions. For each region of the multiple regions, the one or more processors extract local high-resolution texture features from the image of the secure credential document. The one or more processors generate a score based on the local high-resolution texture features using a machine learning model. The score is indicative of a likelihood that the image of the secure credential document is fraudulently generated or photocopied. The one or more processors transmit a message to a display device indicating that the image of the secure credential document is fraudulently generated or photocopied.

  • Patent number: 11308715
    Abstract: Inputs from sensors (e.g., image and environmental sensors) are used for real-time optimization of plant growth in indoor farms by adjusting the light provided to the plants and other environmental factors. The sensors use wireless connectivity to create an Internet of Things network. The optimization is determined using machine-learning analysis and image recognition of the plants being grown. Once a machine-learning model has been generated and/or trained in the cloud, the model is deployed to an edge device located at the indoor farm to overcome connectivity issues between the sensors and the cloud. Plants in an indoor farm are continuously monitored and the light energy intensity and spectral output are automatically adjusted to optimal levels at optimal times to create better crops. The methods and systems are self-regulating in that light controls the plant's growth, and the plant's growth in-turn controls the spectral output and intensity of the light.
