  • Publication number: 20210042556
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for extracting micro-features at a pixel-level based on characteristics of one or more images. Importantly, the extraction is unsupervised, i.e., performed independent of any training data that defines particularly objects, allowing a behavior-recognition system to forgo a training phase and for object classification to proceed without being constrained by specify object definitions. A micro-feature extractor that does not require training data is adaptive and self-trains while performing the extraction. The extracted micro-features are represented as a micro-feature vector that may be input to a micro-classifier which groups object into object type clusters based on the micro-feature vectors.

  • Publication number: 20200410164
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for analyzing and learning behaviors based on acquired sensor data. A neuro-linguistic cognitive engine performs learning and analysis on linguistic content (e.g., identified alpha symbols, betas, and gammas) obtained by a linguistic model that clusters observations to generate the linguistic content. The neuro-linguistic cognitive engine compares new data to learned patterns stored in short and longer-term memories and determines whether to issue special event notifications indicating anomalous behavior. In one embodiment, condition(s) may be generated for new data and checked against inference nodes of an inference network. Inference nodes matching the condition(s) are executed to, e.g., compare the new data with the learned patterns, with output from the inference nodes being used to generate additional condition(s) that are again matched to inference nodes which may be executed.
