  • Publication number: 20200193246
    Abstract: In some embodiments, reduction of computational resource usage related to image labeling and/or segmentation may be facilitated. In some embodiments, a collection of images may be used to train one or more prediction models. Based on a presentation of an image on a user interface, an indication of a target quantity of superpixels for the image may be obtained. The image may be provided to a first prediction model to cause the prediction model to predict a quantity of superpixels for the image. The target quantity of superpixels may be provided to the first model to update the first model's configurations based on (i) the predicted quantity and (ii) the target quantity. A set of superpixels may be generated for the image based on the target quantity, and segmentation information related to the superpixels set may be provided to a second prediction model to update the second model's configurations.

  • Publication number: 20200047364
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein are optimized for cutting sealing elements on packages using optical radiation. Packages can pass through a cutting device that applies the optical radiation to damage, vaporize, or cut the sealing element (e.g., tape) on the package. The systems and methods control several aspects of the cutting process to adjust throughput, improve efficiency, and reduce line stoppages. Systems can include an in-feed conveyor that orients packages and rejects packages that are out of specification, which can lead to issues such as jamming or damage to the equipment. Systems can include a variable-speed cut conveyor controlled by a computing system to dynamically adjust the speed of packages based upon historical cut quality, environmental measurement data, and height data related to a vertical dimension of the package.

  • Publication number: 20180089592
    Abstract: In some embodiments, user-selectable/connectable model representations may be provided via a user interface to facilitate artificial intelligence development. The model representations may comprises first and second machine learning model (ML) representations corresponding to first and second ML models, and non-ML model representations corresponding to non-ML models. Based on user input indicating selection of the first and second ML model representations and a non-ML model representation corresponding to a non-ML model, at least a portion of a software application may be generated such that the software application comprises (i) an instance of the first ML model, an instance of the second ML model, and an instance of the non-ML model and (ii) an input/output data path between the instance of the first ML model and at least one other instance, the at least one other instance comprising the instance of the second ML model or the instance of the non-ML model.

  • Publication number: 20170161631
    Abstract: In certain implementations, a user request to add a new concept may be received. A set of media item recommendations may be caused to be loaded on a user interface for presentation to a user responsive to the user request to add the new concept. The media item recommendation set may include a set of recommendations loaded on an on-screen portion of the user interface and a set of recommendations loaded on an off-screen portion of the user interface. The on-screen user interface portion is visible to the user at a first time. The off-screen user interface portion is not being visible to the user at the first time. A user selection of one or more recommendations of the on-screen recommendation set is received. The off-screen recommendation set may be caused to be updated on the user interface during the presentation of the media item recommendation set based on the user recommendation selection.

  • Publication number: 20070044874
    Abstract: A method for thermal forming includes determining a process window for initiating cooling, locally heating at least one region on a specimen to achieve a pre-selected geometry deformation, initiating active cooling of the heated region within the process window to control at least one material property of the specimen at the heated region and actively cooling the heated region to a pre-selected temperature. A system for thermal forming includes a thermal source for heating the region on the specimen to achieve a pre-selected geometry deformation, an active cooling module for cooling the region to a pre-selected temperature and a control module to control at least one of the thermal source and active cooling module in accordance with a process window to initiate active cooling to control at least one material property of the specimen at the heated region. The process window has an upper time limit for initiating cooling.
