    Abstract: A perception system is adapted to receive visual data from a camera and includes a controller having a processor and tangible, non-transitory memory on which instructions are recorded. A subsampling module, an object detection module and an attention module are each selectively executable by the controller. The controller is configured to sample an input image from the visual data to generate a rescaled whole image frame, via the subsampling module. The controller is configured to extract feature data from the rescaled whole image frame, via the object detection module. A region of interest in the rescaled whole image frame is identified, based on an output of the attention module. The controller is configured to generate a first image based on the rescaled whole image frame and a second image based on the region of interest, the second image having a higher resolution than the first image.

  • Patent number: 11960573
    Abstract: Neural network-based categorization can be improved by incorporating graph neural networks that operate on a graph representing the taxonomy of the categories into which a given input is to be categorized by the neural network based-categorization. The output of a graph neural network, operating on a graph representing the taxonomy of categories, can be combined with the output of a neural network operating upon the input to be categorized, such as through an interaction of multidimensional output data, such as a dot product of output vectors. In such a manner, information conveying the explicit relationships between categories, as defined by the taxonomy, can be incorporated into the categorization. To recapture information, incorporate new information, or reemphasize information a second neural network can also operate upon the input to be categorized, with the output of such a second neural network being merged with the output of the interaction.

  • Patent number: 11942208
    Abstract: A food-recognition engine can be used with a mobile device to identify, in real-time, foods present in a video stream. To capture the video stream, a user points a camera of the mobile device at foods they are about to consume. The video stream is displayed, in real-time, on a screen of the mobile device. The food-recognition engine uses several neural networks to recognize, in the video stream, food features, text printed on packaging, bar codes, logos, and “Nutrition Facts” panels. The neural-network outputs are combined to identify foods with high probabilities. The foods may be packaged or unpackaged, branded or unbranded, and labeled or unlabeled, and may appear simultaneously within the view of the mobile device. Information about recognized foods is displayed on the screen while the video stream is captured. The user may log identified foods with a gesture and without typing.

  • Patent number: 11922753
    Abstract: A system comprises a combination of digital fingerprint authentication techniques, processes, programs, and hardware to facilitate highly reliable authentication of a wide variety of composite physical objects. “Composite” in this case means that there are distinct regions of the object that must be authenticating individually and in tandem to authenticate the entire object. Preferably, a template is stored that defines for a class of objects what regions must be found, their locations, optionally semantic content of the regions, and other criteria. digital fingerprinting is utilized to locate and attempt to match candidate regions by querying a database of reference object records.

  • Patent number: 11915137
    Abstract: An urban data prediction method based on a generative causal interpretation model is provided. The generative causal interpretation model includes exogenous variables, spatio-temporal conditional parent variables, controlled causal transition functions, and spatio-temporal mixing functions. By inferring the model's exogenous variables, causal descriptors, spatio-temporal conditional parent variables, and other causal latent variables from the observation data and fitting the corresponding functions such as the controlled causal transfer function and the spatio-temporal mixing function, the invention can predict the spatio-temporal data in city level based on the model. The observation data of the urban complex system can be decomposed into causal descriptors with physical meanings. Under the influence of stable causal structure, the robustness and applicability of the model can be improved, so that the prediction results are more in line with the operation of urban complex systems.

  • Patent number: 11899927
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for generating a digital image of simulated handwriting using an encoder-decoder neural network trained on images of natural handwriting samples. The simulated handwriting image can be generated based on a style of a handwriting sample and a variable length coded text input. The style represents visually distinctive characteristics of the handwriting sample, such as the shape, size, slope, and spacing of the letters, characters, or other markings in the handwriting sample. The resulting simulated handwriting image can include the text input rendered in the style of the handwriting sample. The distinctive visual appearance of the letters or words in the simulated handwriting image mimics the visual appearance of the letters or words in the handwriting sample image, whether the letters or words in the simulated handwriting image are the same as in the handwriting sample image or different from those in the handwriting sample image.
