  • Patent number: 11315586
    Abstract: A speech enhancement apparatus is disclosed and comprises an adaptive noise cancellation circuit, a blending circuit, a noise suppressor and a control module. The ANC circuit filters a reference signal to generate a noise estimate and subtracts a noise estimate from a primary signal to generate a signal estimate based on a control signal. The blending circuit blends the primary signal and the signal estimate to produce a blended signal. The noise suppressor suppresses noise over the blended signal using a first trained model to generate an enhanced signal and a main spectral representation from a main microphone and M auxiliary spectral representations from M auxiliary microphones using (M+1) second trained models to generate a main score and M auxiliary scores. The ANC circuit, the noise suppressor and the trained models are well combined to maximize the performance of the speech enhancement apparatus.

  • Patent number: 11317088
    Abstract: This disclosure describes gradient-based prediction refinement. A video coder (e.g., video encoder or video decoder) determines one or more prediction blocks for inter-predicting a current block (e.g., based on one or more motion vectors for the current block). In gradient-based prediction refinement, the video coder modifies one or more samples of the prediction block based on various factors such as displacement in a horizontal direction, the horizontal gradient, a displacement in the vertical direction, and a vertical gradient. This disclosure provides for gradient-based prediction refinement where a precision level of the displacement (e.g., at least one of the horizontal or vertical displacement) is unified (e.g., the same) for different prediction modes (e.g., including an affine mode and a bi-directional optical flow (BDOF) mode).
