  • Patent number: 10825132
    Abstract: Systems and methods for use in training a convolutional neural network (CNN) for image and video transformations. The CNN is trained by adding noise to training data set images, transforming both the noisy image and the source image, and then determining the difference between the transformed noisy image and the transformed source image. The CNN is further trained by using an object classifier network and noting the node activation levels within that classifier network when transformed images (from the CNN) are classified. By iteratively adjusting the CNN to minimize a combined loss function that includes the differences between the node activation levels for the transformed references images and when transformed source are classified and the differences between the transformed noisy image and the transformed source image, the artistic style being transferred is maintained in the transformed images.

  • Patent number: 10677881
    Abstract: The present invention provides an improved method of pedestrian dead reckoning (PDR) and device for performing PDR. An image of the environment to be traversed by the pedestrian is used to define states associated with the PDR environment. The image is utilized to constrain error in the estimated location of the pedestrian. Pairs of states are identified and the characteristics of the defined states are utilized to define the probabilities of transitioning between states of the pair. Possible pedestrian events which may be observed are also defined and for each pair of states, the possibility of detecting an event given the state transition is determined. After detecting a series of events, the transition probabilities and the event probabilities are utilized to determine a state probability that the pedestrian is in a particular state at each particular time. Utilizing these state probabilities an estimated location is provided at each time.
