  • Patent number: 10803571
    Abstract: After analyzing images or videos, a computer system may display or present visual performance feedback with an interactive visual representation of a data-analysis pipeline, where the visual representation includes separate and coupled data-analysis operations in a set of data-analysis operations that includes the one or more machine-learning models. Moreover, in response to a user-interface command the specifies a given data-analysis operation, the computer system may display or present a group of images or videos and associated performance information for the given data-analysis operation, where a given image or video corresponds to an instance of the given data-analysis operation. Furthermore, when the computer system receives user feedback about one at least one of the images or videos in the group of images or videos, the computer system performs a remedial action based at least in part on the user feedback.

  • Patent number: 10796158
    Abstract: An apparatus and method are providing for generating a hash in video in which a sample series of temporal difference are sampled in an image order. A temporal averaging is performed and a rate of change is detected to identify as distinctive events regions of high rate of change. Images having a distinctive event are labelled as distinctive images. For each image, the temporal spacing in images is calculated between that image and other distinctive images to provide a set of temporal spacings for that image; and a hash is derived for that image from that set of temporal spacings.

  • Patent number: 10796140
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for monitoring the health and safety of a subject in a room such as a secure room based on video images of the subject. The images are analysed to characterise the movement of the subject as gross movement, fine movement or no movement. In the case of gross movement, no vital signs of the subject are estimated and a display indicates that the subject is moving, but no vital signs are available. In the absence of gross movement, vital signs of the subject such as heart rate or breathing rate are estimated from the video images of the subject, for example by detecting and analysing photoplethysmogram signals in the video images, and the vital signs are displayed. Alerts may be generated if the vital signs are out of the normal physiological range. If vital signs cannot be detected in the video images but the movement of the subject is characterised as fine movement, the display shows that no vital signs are being estimated, but that the subject is moving.
