  • Publication number: 20240046430
    Abstract: One or more processing devices access a scene depicting a reference object that includes an annotation identifying a target region to be modified in one or more video frames. The one or more processing devices determine that a target pixel corresponds to a sub-region within the target region that includes hallucinated content. The one or more processing devices determine gradient constraints using gradient values of neighboring pixels in the hallucinated content, the neighboring pixels being adjacent to the target pixel and corresponding to four cardinal directions. The one or more processing devices update color data of the target pixel subject to the determined gradient constraints.

  • Publication number: 20240004767
    Abstract: A data processing system (1) comprises a plurality of, e.g. graphics, processing units (11), and a management circuit (12) associated with the processing units and operable to configure the processing units of the plurality of processing units into respective groups of the processing units. The management circuit (12) is configured to always operate with a high level of fault protection, but the groups of the processing units can be selectively operated with either a higher level of fault protection or a lower level of fault protection, by selectively subjecting them to fault detection testing (60).

  • Patent number: 11823357
    Abstract: Certain aspects involve video inpainting in which content is propagated from a user-provided reference video frame to other video frames depicting a scene. One example method includes one or more processing devices that performs operations that include accessing a scene depicting a reference object that includes an annotation identifying a target region to be modified in one or more video frames. The operations also includes computing a target motion of a target pixel that is subject to a motion constraint. The motion constraint is based on a three-dimensional model of the reference object. Further, operations include determining color data of the target pixel to correspond to the target motion. The color data includes a color value and a gradient. Operations also include determining gradient constraints using gradient values of neighbor pixels. Additionally, the processing devices updates the color data of the target pixel subject to the gradient constraints.

  • Patent number: 11780197
    Abstract: The disclosure describes techniques for erecting cases, and particularly example structures and example methods for use in a case erecting system using a robotic arm. A tool for use in robotic case erecting may be used in conjunction with a robotic arm. Use of the tool assists in keeping a case level as the case moves along a conveyor, where a plow closes the major flaps and a tape head tapes edges of the flaps together, thereby sealing the bottom of the case. The tool also assists in regulating the gap between the major flaps, so that the gap and/or any overlap of the flaps is minimized. Accordingly, the tool assists the robotic arm to close the case in a more precise manner.

  • Patent number: 11775380
    Abstract: A data processing system comprises a memory, a processing unit, a MMU operable to process memory transactions for the processing unit; and an error-detecting circuit located between the MMU and the memory. The MMU is configured to determine from respective memory address mappings corresponding memory addresses to which memory transaction applies. The determined memory addresses comprise a first part representing a memory location and a second part representing an error-detecting code generated using the first part of the memory address. The error-detecting circuit can then check using the error-detecting code for the memory address whether the memory address received by the error-detecting circuit is valid.

  • Patent number: 11756210
    Abstract: Certain aspects involve video inpainting in which content is propagated from a user-provided reference frame to other video frames depicting a scene. For example, a computing system accesses a set of video frames with annotations identifying a target region to be modified. The computing system determines a motion of the target region's boundary across the set of video frames, and also interpolates pixel motion within the target region across the set of video frames. The computing system also inserts, responsive to user input, a reference frame into the set of video frames. The reference frame can include reference color data from a user-specified modification to the target region. The computing system can use the reference color data and the interpolated motion to update color data in the target region across set of video frames.

  • Publication number: 20230126016
    Abstract: A system and method for generating non-fungible tokens for collectibles. The system authenticates physical ownership of a collectible before allowing a requesting entity to generate a non-fungible token for the collectible. The system generates a fiat currency value for the non-fungible token based on the total number of non-fungible tokens already generated for the collectible and the current value of the collectible. The system tracks non-fungible tokens generated for the collectible to ensure that the proportional cost of generating a non-fungible token strictly increases as the total number of non-fungible tokens generated for the collectible increases.
