  • Patent number: 11954801
    Abstract: A method for virtually representing human body poses includes receiving positioning data detailing parameters of one or more body parts of a human user based at least in part on input from one or more sensors. One or more mapping constraints are maintained that relate a model articulated representation to a target articulated representation. A model pose of the model articulated representation and a target pose of the target articulated representation are concurrently estimated based at least in part on the positioning data and the one or more mapping constraints. The previously-trained pose optimization machine is trained with training positioning data having ground truth labels for the model articulated representation. The target articulated representation is output for display with the target pose as a virtual representation of the human user.

  • Patent number: 11943325
    Abstract: A computer system is provided that includes a storage system, at least one transceiver, and a processing system with at least one hardware processor. The storage system stores a first list pair. The transceiver receives electronic data messages that each include a respective data transaction request. The processing system determines how the new data transaction request should be processed based on which communication protocol was used to submit the request. Updates regarding the first list pair are sent out to non-party client computer systems using different communication protocols, where one is faster than the other, but the slower update includes private data therein.
