  • Patent number: 11321801
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a GPU-based third-order low-rank tensor completion method. Operation steps of the method includes: (1) transmitting, by a CPU, input data DATA1 to a GPU, and initializing the loop count t=1; (2) obtaining, by the GPU, a third-order tensor Yt of a current loop t based on the least squares method; (3) obtaining, by the GPU, a third-order tensor Xt of the current loop t based on the least squares method; (4) checking, by the CPU, whether an end condition is met; and if the end condition is met, turning to (5); otherwise, increasing the loop count t by 1 and turning to (2) to continue the loop; and (5) outputting, by the GPU, output data DATA2 to the CPU. In the present disclosure, in the third-order low-rank tensor completion, a computational task with high concurrent processes is accelerated by using the GPU to improve computational efficiency.

  • Patent number: 11288800
    Abstract: Introduced here are diagnostic platforms able to attribute an output produced by a neural network to its input, as well as communicate the relationship between the output and input in a comprehensible manner. Neural networks are increasingly being used for critical tasks, such as detecting the presence/progression of medical conditions. Accordingly, the importance of explaining how these neural networks produce outputs has grown in importance. By explaining how outputs are produced by a neural network, a diagnostic platform can build trust with medical professionals responsible for interpreting the outputs, identify possible modes of neural network failure, and identify the latent variable(s) responsible for producing a given output.

  • Patent number: 11232593
    Abstract: In a calibration apparatus, a captured image acquisition unit acquires data of an image of a calibration chart captured by a fish-eye imaging apparatus. A distortion correction unit makes an assumption of a parameter of the imaging apparatus, takes into account a projection system to make a correction, and adjusts the parameter until an image of the original chart is obtained. A pseudo image drawing unit uses model data of a chart to draw a pseudo captured image. A point-of-view adjustment unit compares the pseudo image and the captured image and adjusts a point-of-view position of a virtual camera according to a difference between positions of markers or intervals of patterns to specify a position of the imaging apparatus.

  • Patent number: 11182958
    Abstract: In various embodiments, computerized methods and systems for rendering near-field objects as perceivable far-field objects within a virtual environment are provided. A determination is made that a near-field object to be rendered is configured for far-field perception within the virtual environment. The virtual environment is operable to include one or more virtualized near-field objects that are stereoscopically rendered utilizing one or more stereoscopic projection transforms generated based at least in part on a position and orientation of a head-mounted display. A harmonize transform is generated for the configured near-field object based at least in part on one of the stereoscopic projection transforms. Based on the determination that the near-field object is configured for far-field perception, the generated harmonize transform is employed to stereoscopically render the configured near-field object as a perceivable far-field object within the virtual environment.

  • Patent number: 11145123
    Abstract: A mobile device that includes a camera and an extended reality software application program is employed by a user in an operating environment, such as an industrial environment. The user aims the camera within the mobile device at optical data markers, such as QR codes, that are associated with machines in the environment. The mobile device acquires an image from the camera and decodes the optical data markers included in the acquired image. The mobile device queries the data intake and query system for the values of metrics for the machines associated with the decoded optical data markers. Upon receiving the metric values from the data intake and query system, the mobile device generates AR overlays and superimposes the AR overlays onto the acquired image. The mobile device displays the image with superimposed AR overlays on a display device.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for an emergency response system (ERS) to provide an augmented reality overlay on a real-world scene through the heads-up display (HUD) of an emergency responder. In addition to displaying information known to the ERS, an emergency responder terminal of the ERS can detect propagated signals from devices not registered with the ERS. The source and location of the propagated signal can be determined, and a generic display object can be generated representing the location of the propagated signal. The generic display object can be displayed on the HUD when the location of the source of the propagated signal falls within the field of view of a camera component of the emergency responder terminal.
