  • Patent number: 11593615
    Abstract: Image stylization is based on a learning network. A learning network is trained with a plurality of images and a reference image with a particular texture style. A plurality of different sub-networks of the learning network is trained, respectively. Specifically, one of the sub-networks is trained to extract one or more feature maps from the source image and transform the feature maps with the texture style applied thereon to a target image. Each of the feature maps indicates part of feature information of the source image. Another sub-network is trained to apply a specified texture style to the extracted feature maps, such that the target image generated based on the processed feature maps can embody the specified texture style.

  • Patent number: 11514261
    Abstract: According to implementations of the subject matter described herein, there is provided an image colorization solution. The solution includes determining a similarity between contents presented in a grayscale source image and a color reference image and determining a col or target image corresponding to the source image based on the similarity. Specifically, a first and a second sets of blocks similar and dissimilar to the reference image are determined based on the similarity; a first color for the first set of blocks is determined based on a color of corresponding blocks in the reference image; a second color for the second set of blocks is determined independently of the reference image. Through this solution, it is possible to provide user controllability and customized effects in colorization, and there is no strict requirement on correspondence between the color image and grayscale image, achieving more robustness to selection of color reference images.

  • Patent number: 11481869
    Abstract: Implementations of the present disclosure provide a solution for cross-domain image translation. In this solution, a first learning network for geometric deformation from a first to a second image domain is determined based on first and second images in the first and second domains, images in the two domains having different styles and objects in the images having geometric deformation with respect to each other. Geometric deformation from the second to the first domains is performed on the second image or geometric deformation from the first to the second domains is performed on the first image, to generate an intermediate image. A second learning network for style transfer from the first to the second domains is determined based on the first and intermediate images or based on the second and intermediate images generated. Accordingly, processing accuracy of leaning networks for cross-domain image translation can be improved and complexity is lowered.

  • Patent number: 11308576
    Abstract: In accordance with implementations of the subject matter described herein, there is proposed a solution of visual stylization of stereoscopic images. In the solution, a first feature map for a first source image and a second feature map for a second source image are extracted. The first and second source images correspond to first and second views of a stereoscopic image, respectively. A first unidirectional disparity from the first source image to the second source image is determined based on the first and second source images. First and second target images having a specified visual style are generated by processing the first and second feature maps based on the first unidirectional disparity. Through the solution, a disparity between two source images of a stereoscopic image are taken into account when performing the visual style transfer, thereby maintaining a stereoscopic effect in the stereoscopic image consisting of the target images.

  • Publication number: 20220017393
    Abstract: A method for advanced nitrogen and phosphorus removal in sewage treatment includes the following steps: feeding raw water and return sludge into a pre-denitrification zone for denitrification; allowing a sludge-containing mixed liquor discharged from the pre-denitrification zone to enter an anaerobic zone to undergo a biological phosphorus removal reaction; allowing a sludge-containing mixed liquor discharged from the anaerobic zone and a return nitrification liquid to enter an anoxic zone for denitrification; allowing a sludge-containing mixed liquor discharged from the anoxic zone to enter an aerobic zone for nitrification and excessive phosphorus uptake, and allowing part of a nitrification liquid to be returned to the anoxic zone; allowing a sludge-containing mixed liquor discharged from the aerobic zone to enter a sedimentation zone for separation; passing a resulting supernatant through a biological filtration zone; returning part of resulting sludge to the pre-denitrification zone; and the like.

  • Publication number: 20200151849
    Abstract: According to implementations of the subject matter, a solution is provided for visual style transfer of images. In this solution, first and second sets of feature maps are extracted for first and second source images, respectively, a feature map in the first or second set of feature maps representing at least a part of a visual style of the first or second source image. A first mapping from the first source image to the second source image is determined based on the first and second sets of feature maps. The first source image is transferred based on the first mapping and the second source image to generate a first target image at least partially having the second visual style. Through this solution, a visual style of a source image can be effectively applied to a further source image in feature space.
