  • Publication number: 20200175742
    Abstract: A method for visualizing two-dimensional data with three-dimensional volume enables the end user to easily view abnormalities in sequential data. The two-dimensional data can be in the form of a tiled texture with the images in a set row and column, a media file with the images displayed at certain images in time, or any other way to depict a set of two-dimensional images. The disclosed method takes in each pixel of the images and evaluates the density, usually represented by color, of the pixel. This evaluation allows the user to set threshold values and return accurate representations of the data presented, instead of a culmination of all data along a ray trace.

  • Publication number: 20200175746
    Abstract: A method to view inside three-dimensional volumetric build data takes in each pixel of the images and evaluates the density, usually represented by color, of the pixel. This evaluation allows the user to set threshold values and return exact representations of the data presented, instead of a culmination of all data along a ray trace. The user can determine the size and placement of a slice plane in relation to the volumetric data, and the software will remove the data in front of the plane so the user can view the internal structure of the data.

  • Publication number: 20200151253
    Abstract: In some applications, it may be desired to process a message to determine an intent of the message, where the intent indicates the meaning of the message. An intent classifier may be used to determine the meaning of a message by processing the message to compute a message embedding vector that represents the message in a vector space. Each possible intent may be represented by a prototype vector, and the intent of the message may be determined by comparing the message embedding to one or more prototype vectors, such as by selecting an intent whose prototype vector is closest to the message embedding. An intent classifier may be used, for example, (i) to implement an automated communications system with states where each state is associated with a subset of the possible intents or (ii) for processing usage data of a communications system to update the intents of the communications system.

  • Patent number: 10643429
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments, a physical game element such as a wagering chip or a playing card may be utilized to implement a promotion scheme on an electronic card table (e.g., using RFID or optical imaging technology). During a game it may be determined whether the element is associated with special functionality (e.g., entitles the player to a payout multiplier, special payout table, bonus prize or other benefit). The special functionality may have been previously associated with the element or associated with the element during the game (e.g., dynamically and/or randomly). In accordance with some embodiments a player is not able to readily discern the special functionality by a physical inspection of the physical game element and is only notified of the special functionality once the physical game element is used in a qualifying action (e.g., during a wager at an electronic card table).
