  • Patent number: 11971954
    Abstract: One example method includes identifying dissimilar items in a data set. A data set may be walked one or more times and the nodes or vertices of the data set may be scored based on the number of times the nodes are touched during the walks. Scores below a threshold score are determined to be dissimilar nodes in the data set. This allows a diverse set of nodes to be identified. A dissimilar data set may be used to prevent unintentional bias in algorithmic training.

  • Patent number: 11944429
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed to objectively identify sub-second behavioral modules in the three-dimensional (3D) video data that represents the motion of a subject. Defining behavioral modules based upon structure in the 3D video data itself— rather than using a priori definitions for what should constitute a measurable unit of action— identifies a previously-unexplored sub-second regularity that defines a timescale upon which behavior is organized, yields important information about the components and structure of behavior, offers insight into the nature of behavioral change in the subject, and enables objective discovery of subtle alterations in patterned action. The systems and methods of the invention can be applied to drug or gene therapy classification, drug or gene therapy screening, disease study including early detection of the onset of a disease, toxicology research, side-effect study, learning and memory process study, anxiety study, and analysis in consumer behavior.

  • Patent number: 11918390
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for medical imaging systems. In one embodiment, a method for a medical imaging system comprises acquiring emission data during a positron emission tomography (PET) scan of a patient, reconstructing a series of live PET images while acquiring the emission data, tracking motion of the patient during the acquiring by determining a per-voxel variation for selected voxels in a current live PET image of the series of live PET images, and outputting an indication of patient motion based on the per-voxel variation for the selected voxels in each live PET image. In this way, patient motion during the scan may be identified and compensated for via scan acquisition and/or data processing adjustments, thereby producing a diagnostic PET image with reduced motion artifacts and increased diagnostic quality.
