  • Publication number: 20240143606
    Abstract: A microprocessor executable method and system for determining the semantic relatedness and meaning between at least two natural language sources is described in a prescribed context. Portions of natural languages are vectorized and mathematically processed to express relatedness as a calculated metric. The metric is associable to the natural language sources to graphically present the level of relatedness between at least two natural language sources. The metric may be re-determined with algorithms designed to compare the natural language sources with a knowledge data bank so the calculated metric can be ascertained with a higher level of certainty.

  • Publication number: 20240062395
    Abstract: A crime center system generating a graphical user interface (GUI), which may be map-based, that facilitates efficient following of a moving object across cameras covering a geographic area. The system processes information on a network of cameras to determine the locations the cameras and their orientations. An object-tracking interface is generated by the system that includes an active camera view window presenting video from a camera capturing video of the geographic area that includes the tracked object. The system determines a set of the cameras, based on known locations and orientations, capturing images about the geographic space captured by the active camera. The system generates a “halo” of camera icons in the object-tracking interface around the periphery of the active camera view window, which provides a 360-degree view of available cameras about the active camera's location allowing a user to select a next active camera to efficiently track an object.
