  • Publication number: 20220318879
    Abstract: A web-based item listing platform provides item listings that users can create or search. Item listings can be generated using structured information extracted while capturing an item listing video of the item. During creation of the item listing video, input prompts are provided to the user that cause a mobile device to provide an input request, such as taking an image of a specific feature of the item or providing some other item description information. During the item listing video, image recognition models may also be employed to determine other item description information, such as the color, the brand, and the like. The item listing can be generated from the item listing video by populating a set of structured data elements associated with an item description type. Each structured data element is populated with the item description information corresponding to the associated item description type.

  • Publication number: 20220319551
    Abstract: A video is provided to viewers using a web-based platform without restricted audio, such as a copyrighted soundtrack. To do so, a video comprising at least two audio layers is received. The audio layers can include separate and distinct audio layers or a mix of audio from separate sources. A restricted audio element is identified in a first audio layer and a speech element is identified in a second audio layer. A stitched text string can be generated by performing speech-to-text on both audio layers and removing the text corresponding to the restricted audio element of the second audio layer. When playing back the video, a portion of the video is muted based on the restricted audio element. A voice synthesizer is employed to generate audible sound during the muted portion using the stitched text string.

  • Publication number: 20220253142
    Abstract: Simulating interaction with an object represented in a virtual environment is disclosed. A system includes one or more circuits configured to receive an indicator of a sensed touch in a virtual environment and to determine, based on the indicator, an area of the sensed touch. The one or more circuits are further configured to generate a simulated touch by applying a field to one or more touch simulators, the field actuating the one or more touch simulators by linearly displacing an element of the one or more touch simulators. In implementations, the touch simulators are actuated based on data describing textures and weights of the object represented in the virtual environment.

  • Patent number: 10629069
    Abstract: An approach is provided for a localized link-centric metric for directional traffic propagation. The approach, for instance, involves designating a base link of the road network. The approach also involves determining a plurality of vehicle trajectories that pass through the base link. The plurality of vehicle trajectories is based on probe data collected from one or more sensors of a plurality of vehicles travelling in the road network. The approach further involves determining a frequency at which the plurality of vehicle trajectories passes through the base link to each of one or more other links in the plurality of vehicle trajectories within a proximity threshold. The approach further involves computing a link-centric metric for said each of the one or more other links relative to the base link based on the determined frequency.

  • Patent number: 10504283
    Abstract: An approach is provided for regularizing building footprints. The approach, for example, involves designating a vertex of an initial building footprint as an initial vertex of a regularized footprint. The approach also involves generating an edge from the initial vertex to a next vertex of the initial footprint to add to the regularized footprint when that the edge can connect along a taxicab distance. The taxicab distance, for instance, is based on a rectilinear geometry between two points. The approach further involves adding a new vertex to the regularized footprint when the edge cannot connect along the taxicab distance. The edge then connects the initial vertex to the new vertex, and another edge connects the new vertex to the next vertex along the taxicab distance. The approach further involves generating a subsequent new edge or vertex of the regularized footprint for each subsequent next vertex of the initial footprint.

  • Patent number: 10354433
    Abstract: An approach involves receiving pixel-level labeling data for an image depicting at least a portion of a building facade. The pixel-level labeling data labels each of a plurality of pixels of the image as either window pixels or non-window pixels. The approach further involves generating a window pattern based on window size data, window spacing data, or a combination thereof extracted from the pixel-level labeling data. The approach further involves computing a confidence score for the window pattern based on at least one observed value of at least one characteristic of the window pattern or a deviation of the observed value from at least one expected value, and generating an abstract texture based on the window pattern, the confidence score, and/or other probabilistic metrics.

  • Patent number: 10332309
    Abstract: An approach is provided for identifying objects present in mesh representation of a geo-location, generating accurate 3D models for the objects, and aligning the 3D models to their corresponding objects in an application.
