  • Publication number: 20210287395
    Abstract: An information processing system includes a storage device that stores therein a trained model, and a processor. The trained model is trained to output a position and shape of an object in a training image based on training data. The training data is data in which the training image is provided with an annotation indicating the position and shape of the object. The training image is an image captured with an angle of view including the object whose position and shape are not clearly displayed in an image. The processor executes detection processing on a detection image to output detected information indicating the position and shape of the object. The processor then causes a display device to display the detected information superimposed on the detection image.

  • Patent number: 11122177
    Abstract: An image reading device reads two types of documents, a first document having a first size and a second document having a second size larger than the first size. A controller of the device causes the first document reader to read the first document and generate image data when the operation unit accepts a command. The first document reader reads a portion of the second document and generates image data on tilt of the second document when the operation unit accepts a command. The document tilt detector detects tilt of the second document based on the image data for detecting tilt of the second document. The document transporter stops transport of the second document when the document tilt detector detects tilt of the second document. The second document reader reads the second document and generates image data when the document tilt detector detects no tilt of the second document.

  • Patent number: 9329898
    Abstract: A computer sequentially selects, when receiving a job execution request specifying the requested number of nodes, an axis from the n axes of n-dimensional space (n is an integer of two or greater) forming a network where nodes are connected by mesh or torus interconnect. The computer gradually extends the width of a temporary range of coordinates of the selected axis from a prescribed value, and determines, as a range for the selected axis, the temporary range where the number of available nodes whose coordinates on each defined axis having a determined range fall within the range and whose coordinates on the selected axis fall within the temporary range is greater than or equal to the requested number of nodes. After determining ranges for all the axes, the computer determines which nodes to assign to the job from available nodes whose coordinates on each axis fall within its range.

  • Patent number: 9332686
    Abstract: A lower supporting pin module 22 is given a shape having a contact surface 26a. On the occasion of position recognition for determining a position of a pin on the lower supporting pin module 22, an image of the lower supporting pin module 22 is captured, and the image is subjected to recognition processing, to thus detect an outer shape of an upper shaft 24B. Even when an extraneous matter on a downside surface of a substrate adheres to the contact surface 26a, the position of the lower supporting pin module 22 can be stably recognized with superior recognition precision.
