  • Patent number: 8666670
    Abstract: The invention is a new method to computationally analyze nucleic acid-protein binding data in a systematic or statistical manner in order to determine the DNA binding sequence for proteins which bind to DNA and are usually involved in the regulation of the expression of genes, and may enhance, promote or repress the expression of the gene.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: August 19, 2007
    Date of Patent: March 4, 2014
    Inventors: Michael F. Chou, David M. Geshwind
  • Publication number: 20120233631
    Abstract: Creation or modification of various media to a form that is suitable for delivery (e.g., display) during gaps (generally temporal) in an information display to, or interaction with, a human user. Media is prepared to be granular in nature; consisting of relatively many, relatively small, cognitively separable or stand-alone segments; and, is optionally also customized to user preferences.
    Type: Application

    Inventor: David M. Geshwind
  • Patent number: 8253729
    Abstract: Techniques for improving the conversion of 2D images to 3D stereoscopic images, including trimming of portions of depth information to achieve improved processing at object boundaries.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: May 2, 2008
    Date of Patent: August 28, 2012
    Inventor: David M. Geshwind
  • Patent number: 8243123
    Abstract: Additional cameras, optionally in conjunction with markers or projectors, capture three-dimensional information about the environment and characters of a filmed scene. This data is later used to convert, generally as a post-production process under highly automated computer control, or as a post broadcast process, a relatively high quality two-dimensional image stream to three-dimensional or stereoscopic, generally binocular, format.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: February 2, 2006
    Date of Patent: August 14, 2012
    Inventors: David M. Geshwind, Anne C. Avellone
  • Patent number: 5050984
    Abstract: A system is disclosed in which individual black & white frames from film (100) are colorized by combination with color film (120) generated by computer (110) assisted techniques. Color information is processed, for example, by filtering, cross-dissolving or interpolation. The technique is also applicable to modifying the color of black & white portions of full color film (340) to repair damaged or degraded frames or to create special effects.
    Type: Grant

    Date of Patent: September 24, 1991
    Inventor: David M. Geshwind
  • Patent number: 4925294
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the computer-assisted processing of standard two-dimensional motion pictures to generate processed image sequences which exhibit some three-dimensional depth effects when viewed under appropriate conditions.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 17, 1986
    Date of Patent: May 15, 1990
    Inventors: David M. Geshwind, Anthony H. Handal
  • Patent number: 4606625
    Abstract: A system is disclosed in which individual frames are colorized by the addition of manually generated color. Color information is blurred, for example, by passing through a low resolution digital encoder for use in frames adjacent to the one being individually colorized. Interpolative techniques are used to reduce the number of frames which have to be individually colorized.
