  • Patent number: 11157689
    Abstract: Systems for performing operations on dynamic data associated with cells of a spreadsheet are provided. Both dynamic data and static data may be associated with a single cell of the spreadsheet. Upon association, parameters (including stream attributes, video attributes, image attributes and audio attributes) may be manipulated by a user, providing dynamic data processing functionality within a spreadsheet. Controls may be provided for playing the dynamic data and/or playing the dynamic data in response to spreadsheet data satisfying a condition. Operations for inserting text transcriptions (e.g., speech-to-text) of an audio track associated with dynamic data as subtitles may further be provided. Spreadsheet operations (e.g., sort and/or filter operations) may also be performed on a range of cells based on parameters of associated dynamic data.

  • Publication number: 20210287336
    Abstract: A modular tracking system is described comprising of the network of independent tracking units optionally accompanied by a LIDAR scanner and/or (one or more) elevated cameras. Tracking units are combining panoramic and zoomed cameras to imitate the working principle of the human eye. Markerless computer vision algorithms are executed directly on the units and provide feedback to motorized mirror placed in front of the zoomed camera to keep tracked objects/people in its field of view. Microphones are used to detect and localize sound events. Inference from different sensor is fused in real time to reconstruct high-level events and full skeleton representation for each participant.

  • Publication number: 20200346093
    Abstract: The sport data tracking systems available today are based on specialized hardware to detect and track targets on the field. While effective, implementing and maintaining these systems pose a number of challenges, including high cost and need for close human monitoring. On the other hand, the sports analytics community has been exploring human computation and crowdsourcing in order to produce tracking data that is trustworthy, cheaper and more accessible. However, state-of-the-art methods require a large number of users to perform the annotation, or put too much burden into a single user. Example methods, systems and user interfaces that facilitate the creation of tracking data sequences of events (e.g., plays of baseball games) by warm-starting a manual annotation process using a vast collection of historical data are described.
