  • Publication number: 20210142736
    Abstract: An electronic device such as a head-mounted device may have displays. The display may have regions of lower and higher resolution to reduce data bandwidth and power consumption for the display while preserving satisfactory image quality. Data lines may be shared by lower and higher resolution portions of a display or different portions of a display with different resolutions may be supplied with different numbers of data lines. Data line length may be varied in transition regions between lower resolution and higher resolution portions of a display to reduce visible discontinuities between the lower and higher resolution portions. The lower and higher resolution portions of the display may be dynamically adjusted using dynamically adjustable gate driver circuitry and dynamically adjustable data line driver circuitry.

  • Patent number: 10885380
    Abstract: Some implementations can include a computer-implemented method and/or system for automatic suggestion to share images. The method can include identifying a plurality of images associated with a user and detecting one or more entities in the plurality of images. The method can also include constructing an aggregate feature vector for the plurality of images based on the one or more entities in the plurality of images and determining that the aggregate feature vector matches a first cluster. The method can further include, in response to determining that the aggregate feature vector matches the first cluster, providing a suggestion to the user for an image composition based on the plurality of images.

  • Patent number: 10872112
    Abstract: Some implementations can include a computer-implemented method and/or system for automatic suggestions to share images containing people of importance to a user. The method can include determining, based on pixels of an image associated with a user account, one or more clusters associated with the image. The method can also include determining a share probability score for the image based on a probabilistic model and determining that the share probability score meets a threshold. The method can further include, in response to determining that the share probability score meets the threshold, providing a suggestion to a user associated with the user account to share the image.

  • Publication number: 20200076756
    Abstract: Implementations relate to sharing images and image albums over a communication network. In some implementations, a computer-implemented method includes determining that a shared album data structure is accessible by a device and includes references to album images. The device determines one or more suggested images from a collection of stored images associated with a user, based on determining sharing scores for the stored images. The sharing scores are based on comparing one or more characteristics of the stored images to one or more corresponding characteristics of the album images. The method includes causing display of the one or more suggested images by the device, receiving a selection of at least one selected image of the suggested images based on received user input, and causing an update of the shared album data structure with the at least one selected image to be accessible over a communication network by recipient users.

  • Patent number: 10569650
    Abstract: The method, system, and computer-readable medium facilitates monitoring a vehicle operator during the course of vehicle operation to determine whether the vehicle operator is impaired (e.g., distracted, drowsy, intoxicated) and alerting the vehicle operator using a haptic alert delivered by a wearable computing device worn by the vehicle operator when impairment is detected. The method, system, and computer-readable medium may monitor the vehicle operator, the environment surrounding the vehicle, and/or forces acting on the vehicle using a variety of sensors, including optical sensors or accelerometers. In particular, optical sensors may monitor the vehicle operator to detect eye blinks, head nods, head rotations, and/or gaze fixation. Optical sensors may also monitor the road ahead of the vehicle to detect lane deviation, lane centering, and time to collision. Accelerometers may detect acceleration in the direction of vehicle travel and/or lateral acceleration.

  • Patent number: 10564824
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes detecting a plurality of faces within one or more images, and, for each of the plurality of faces, registering the face with a contact. The method further includes receiving a selection of one of the plurality of faces from a user, and, in response to the selection of the one of the plurality of faces, determining the contact associated with the selected one of the plurality of faces. Still further, the method includes retrieving information about the contact, and generating a list of selectable communication types to be displayed to the user on a display device.
