  • Patent number: 10395388
    Abstract: A system for automated geospatial image analysis comprising a deep learning model that receives orthorectified geospatial images, pre-labeled to demarcate objects of interest. The module presents marked geospatial images and a second set of unmarked, optimized, training geospatial images to a convolutional neural network. This process may be repeated so that an image analysis software module can detect multiple object types or categories. The image analysis software module receives orthorectified geospatial images from one or more geospatial image caches. Using a multi-scale sliding window submodule, image analysis software scans geospatial images, detects objects present and geospatially locates them.

  • Patent number: 10373218
    Abstract: Techniques are described for facilitating use of software components by software applications in a configurable manner. In some situations, the software components are fee-based components that are made available by providers of the components for use by others in exchange for fees defined by the components providers, and in at least some situations, the software components may have various associated restrictions or other non-price conditions related to their use. The described techniques facilitate use of such software components by software applications in a configured manner. Furthermore, in at least some situation, the execution of such software applications is managed by an application deployment system that controls and tracks the execution of the software application on one or more computing nodes, including to manage the execution of any software components that are part of the software application.

  • Patent number: 9118727
    Abstract: Providing metadata subscription services includes receiving a notification subscription request containing an item selected from a plurality of items residing in a repository. The items are stored in hierarchically-arranged levels of storage within the repository. Providing the services also includes determining that metadata of the item has been modified and creating a notification including changes made with respect to the metadata and any others of the items residing in the repository at a storage level equal to a storage level of the item and any storage levels that are lower than the storage level of the item. Providing the services further includes transmitting the notification to a user-specified first address and transmitting a copy of the item including the changes to a user-specified second address. The user-specified second address is different than the user-specified first address.

  • Patent number: 8335824
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments relate to methods, systems, user devices and computer program products for providing metadata subscription services. Methods include receiving notification that an item in a repository has been modified and determining if a notification is associated with the item being modified. The notification corresponds to an address and the determining is performed in an automated manner in response to the receiving. The notification is transmitted to the address in an automated manner in response to determining that the notification request is associated with the item being modified.

  • Patent number: 8107361
    Abstract: Provided are methods, devices, and systems for maintaining a SIP survivable network. The present invention is adapted to allow SIP endpoints or User Agents to discover and select the controller or controllers that the SIP endpoint will register with. Selection of the controller or controllers may be based upon the relative attributes of the controllers and the needs of the SIP endpoint.

  • Patent number: 8018848
    Abstract: Provided are methods, devices, and systems for maintaining a SIP survivable User Agent. The present invention is adapted to allow the User Agent to detect the status of the network, thus providing the User Agent to perform failover/failback operations. The User Agent may be adapted to determine the status of the network based on its own monitoring mechanisms and/or based on messages received from other network components.
