  • Patent number: 10963659
    Abstract: This disclosure describes using trained classifiers and additional data to identify items placed into a tote. The techniques may use a first classifier on image data representing an item to determine a region associated with a barcode of the item and may use one or more second classifiers to analyze the region for determining a candidate barcode. The techniques may then determine whether the candidate barcode corresponds to the actual barcode of the item. If so, the techniques may update a virtual cart associated with a user account to indicate the acquisition of the item. If not, then the techniques may use the additional data for identifying the item. For example, the techniques determine a current location of a tote for determining items that are within a threshold distance of the location and may use this information, along with the candidate barcode, to identify the item placed into the tote.

  • Patent number: 10759145
    Abstract: There is provided a process for preparing a laminate, comprising electrostatically printing a transparent electrostatic ink composition onto a base material, wherein the transparent electrostatic ink composition comprises a thermoplastic resin, and a charge adjuvant and/or a charge director; providing a substrate; and contacting the substrate with the transparent electrostatic ink composition while the thermoplastic resin is softened or molten, and then allowing the thermoplastic resin to harden, so that the electrostatic ink composition adheres the base material and the substrate together. Laminate materials are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200258248
    Abstract: An active depth detection system can generate a depth map from an image and user interaction data, such as a pair of clicks. The active depth detection system can be implemented as a recurrent neural network that can receive the user interaction data as runtime inputs after training. The active depth detection system can store the generated depth map for further processing, such as image manipulation or real-world object detection.

  • Patent number: 10529535
    Abstract: Apparatuses, methods, kits, and systems relating to transferring electromagnetic energy to an energy application zone via a source of electromagnetic energy are disclosed. Some apparatuses may include a processor configured to determine a preliminary amount of energy to be dissipated in an object located at least partially in the energy application zone and determine a corrected amount of energy based on the preliminary amount of energy and calibration information. The processor may be further configured to estimate an amount of energy dissipated in the object. The processor may also be configured to cause the source to transfer energy to the energy application zone at least until the energy dissipated in the object as estimated equals the corrected amount of energy.

  • Publication number: 20190365141
    Abstract: A device and method for preparing hot beverage while combining roasting the brewing in the same device. When non-roasted or semi roasted grinds or scrunched leaves are used, completion of the roasting is performed by the device to a desired level of roasting. Thereafter brewing is performed in a desired temperature and a controlled pressure. The grinds or scrunched leaves can be provided packed in a capsule.

  • Patent number: 10333639
    Abstract: A digital synthesis channelizer includes a memory buffer and circuitry. The memory buffer stores samples of N input signals having a sampling rate Fsi. The N input signals are processed, prior to storing in the memory buffer, by an N-point time-frequency transform module. The circuitry includes at least P filters derived from a Low-Pass Filter whose stopband frequency depends on Fsi. The circuitry is configured to set a sampling time according to a predefined output sampling rate Fso=?·Fsi, ? being a predefined rate-conversion ratio, to select based on the sampling time one or more filters out of the at least P filters, and using the selected one or more filters, to generate, from at least some of the samples in the memory buffer, a filtered and interpolated output sample of an output signal that sums N digitally resampled by ? and frequency-shifted versions of the respective N input signals.

  • Patent number: 7149801
    Abstract: A resource may be abused if its users incur little or no cost. For example, e-mail abuse is rampant because sending an e-mail has negligible cost for the sender. Such abuse may be discouraged by introducing an artificial cost in the form of a moderately expensive computation. Thus, the sender of an e-mail might be required to pay by computing for a few seconds before the e-mail is accepted. Unfortunately, because of sharp disparities across computer systems, this approach may be ineffective against malicious users with high-end systems, prohibitively slow for legitimate users with low-end systems, or both. Starting from this observation, we identify moderately hard, memory bound functions that most recent computer systems will evaluate at about the same speed, and we explain how to use them for protecting against abuses.
