  • Publication number: 20220129683
    Abstract: Systems and methods analyze a data set including a plurality of images. In one implementation, at least one processor receives a plurality of images acquired by one or more cameras associated with at least one vehicle; and analyzes the plurality of images using an active learning system configured to determine a relative priority ranking among the plurality of images. The relative priority ranking indicates an ordered sequence for the plurality of images, and is determined based on at least one indicator, determined for each of the plurality of images, of a complexity level and a diversity level associated with representations of one or more objects represented in the plurality of images. The at least one processor then outputs information indicating the relative priority ranking among the plurality of images.

  • Patent number: 9278230
    Abstract: A method is provided for reducing a wrinkle on a skin surface (42). The method includes identifying a person having a skin surface (42) with a wrinkle and in response to identifying the person, positioning at respective sites on the skin surface (42) an array (44) of electrodes (60) coupled to an energy source (46). While the electrodes (60) are at the respective sites: during a first time period, applying energy from the energy source (46) to drive the electrodes (60) to apply radio frequency (RF) current at a first voltage, capable of ablating an epidermal layer of the skin; and during a second time period, applying energy from the energy source (46) to drive the electrodes (60) to apply current at a second voltage, lower than the first voltage. Other embodiments are also described.
