  • Publication number: 20240215816
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are provided for measuring eye refraction without a lens, and more particularly, for measuring eye refraction with a mobile device application. An exemplary method includes measuring a distance between a patient and a mobile device, presenting to the patient one or more visual targets sized and shaped to represent perfect vision such as by using Vernier targets or grating targets, instructing the patient to indicate whether the patient can accurately read the visual targets and, if not, to move closer to the mobile device until the patient can accurately read the visual targets, calculating a vision prescription for the patient based on the visual targets and a final distance between the patient and the mobile device, and displaying the vision prescription for the patient.

  • Publication number: 20230273914
    Abstract: This application discloses a data augmentation method and apparatus, a computing device, and a computer-readable storage medium, and pertains to the field of artificial intelligence technologies. According to this method, a sample is processed through a plurality of data augmentation operations in a data augmentation policy, so that a plurality of target augmented samples can be obtained, thereby increasing a quantity of samples. In addition, because the plurality of data augmentation operations are performed on the sample within an operation intensity change interval indicated by target operation levels of the plurality of data augmentation operations, the plurality of obtained target augmented samples can change within the operation intensity change interval indicated by the target operation levels of the plurality of data augmentation operations, thereby improving sample diversity.

  • Patent number: 11657105
    Abstract: The automated social networking graph mining and visualization technique described herein mines social connections and allows creation of a social networking graph from general (not necessarily social-application specific) Web pages. The technique uses the distances between a person's/entity's name and related people's/entities names on one or more Web pages to determine connections between people/entities and the strengths of the connections. In one embodiment, the technique lays out these connections, and then clusters them, in a 2-D layout of a social networking graph that represents the Web connection strengths among the related people's or entities' names, by using a force-directed model.

  • Patent number: 11113277
    Abstract: Methods and systems for maintaining a materialized view defined on a relation of a relational database include providing a materialized view maintenance system implemented in a computing device having at least a processor and a memory device. It is determined whether an update to a base relation is irrelevant with respect to the materialized view by performing content-based filtering on the base relation using the materialized view maintenance system. An estimate of at least one of an importance and an effect of the update to the base relation is generated. One or both of performing a load shedding operation on the relational database based upon the estimate and quantifying the effect of the update being omitted from the materialized view based on the estimate is performed. The maintained materialized view is displayed so as to exclude determined irrelevant updates.
