  • Patent number: 11934789
    Abstract: A document capture server receives a document image from a document capture client and processes the image into an electronic document containing textual content. During capture, the document capture server determines a graphical layout of the document, extracts keywords from the document, classifies the document accordingly, and calls an artificial intelligence (AI) platform to gain insights on the textual content. The AI platform analyzes the textual content and returns additional, insightful data such as a sentiment of the textual content. The document capture server can validate the additional data, integrate the additional data in a process or workflow, and/or provide the textual content and the additional data to a content repository or a computing facility operating in an enterprise computing environment. The document capture server can provide validated data to the AI platform to improve future analyses by the AI platform.

  • Patent number: 11908152
    Abstract: The present invention belongs to the field of image processing and computer vision, and discloses an acceleration method of depth estimation for multiband stereo cameras. In the process of depth estimation, during binocular stereo matching in each band, through compression of matched images, on one hand, disparity equipotential errors caused by binocular image correction can be offset to make the matching more accurate, and on the other hand, calculation overhead is reduced. In addition, before cost aggregation, cost diagrams are transversely compressed and sparsely matched, thereby reducing the calculation overhead again. Disparity diagrams obtained under different modes are fused to obtain all-weather, more complete and more accurate depth information.

  • Patent number: 11900560
    Abstract: Implementations relate to diagnosis of crop yield predictions and/or crop yields at the field- and pixel-level. In various implementations, a first temporal sequence of high-elevation digital images may be obtained that captures a geographic area over a given time interval through a crop cycle of a first type of crop. Ground truth operational data generated through the given time interval and that influences a final crop yield of the first geographic area after the crop cycle may also be obtained. Based on these data, a ground truth-based crop yield prediction may be generated for the first geographic area at the crop cycle's end. Recommended operational change(s) may be identified based on distinct hypothetical crop yield prediction(s) for the first geographic area. Each distinct hypothetical crop yield prediction may be generated based on hypothetical operational data that includes altered data point(s) of the ground truth operational data.
