  • Publication number: 20220222956
    Abstract: This disclosure relates generally to intelligent visual reasoning over graphical illustrations using a MAC unit. Prior arts use visual attention to map particular words in a question to specific areas in an image to memorize the corresponding answers, thereby resulting in a limited capability to answer questions of a specific type. The present disclosure incorporates the MAC unit to enable reasoning capabilities and accordingly attend to an area in the image to find the answer. The present disclosure therefore allows generalizing over a possible set of questions with varying complexities so that an unseen question can also be answered correctly based on the reasoning methods that it has learned. The system and method of the present disclosure can be used for understanding of visual information when processing documents like business reports, research papers, consensus reports etc. containing charts and reduce the time spent in manual analysis.

  • Publication number: 20220215683
    Abstract: Keypoint extraction is done for extracting keypoints from images of documents. Based on different keypoint extraction approaches used by existing keypoint extraction mechanisms, number of keypoints extracted and related parameters vary. Disclosed herein is a method and system for keypoint extraction from images of one or more documents. In this method, a reference image and a test image of a document are collected as input. During the keypoint extraction, based on types of characters present in words extracted from the document images, a plurality of words are extracted. Further, all connected components in each of the extracted words are identified. Further, it is decided whether keypoints are to be searched in a first component or in a last component of all the identified connected components, and accordingly searches and extracts at least four of the keypoints from the test image and the corresponding four keypoints from the reference image.

  • Publication number: 20220172822
    Abstract: The method for evaluating mental health of a patient includes displaying a series of inquiries from mental health questionnaires on a display device. Each inquiry of the series of inquiries includes text and a set of answers. A series of selections is received from a user interface. Each selection of the series of selections is representative of an answer of the set of answers for each corresponding inquiry in the series of inquiries. Unprocessed MRI data are received. The unprocessed MRI data correspond to a set of MRI images of a biological structure associated with a patient. Using a machine learning model, the series of selections and the unprocessed MRI data are processed. The series of selections being processed corresponds to the series of inquiries. A symptom severity indicator for a mental health category of the patient is outputted.

  • Publication number: 20220139530
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides systems and methods for automating the QC of MRI scans. Particularly, the inventors trained machine learning classifiers using features derived from brain MR images and associated processing to predict the quality of those images, which is based on the ground truth of an expert's opinion. In one example, classifiers that utilized features derived from preprocessing log files (textual files output during MRI preprocessing) were particularly accurate and demonstrated an ability to be generalized to new datasets, which allows the disclosed technology to be scalable to new datasets and MRI preprocessing pipelines.

  • Publication number: 20210398685
    Abstract: Systems and methods for utilizing machine learning to generate a trans-diagnostic classifier that is operative to concurrently diagnose a plurality of different mental health disorders using a single trans-diagnostic questionnaire that includes a plurality of questions (e.g., 17 questions). Machine learning techniques are used to process labeled training data to build statistical models that include trans-diagnostic item-level questions as features to create a screen to classify groups of subjects as either healthy or as possibly having a mental health disorder. A subset of questions is selected from the multiple self-administered mental health questionnaires and used to autonomously screen subjects across multiple mental health disorders without physician involvement, optionally remotely and repeatedly, in a short amount of time.

  • Patent number: 10769408
    Abstract: Method and system for automatic chromosome classification is disclosed. The system, alternatively referred as a Residual Convolutional Recurrent Attention Neural Network (Res-CRANN), utilizes property of band sequence of chromosome bands for chromosome classification. The Res-CRANN is end-to-end trainable system, in which a sequence of feature vectors are extracted from the feature maps produced by convolutional layers of a Residual neural networks (ResNet), wherein the feature vectors correspond to visual features representing chromosome bands in an chromosome image. The sequence feature vectors are fed into Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) augmented with an attention mechanism. The RNN learns the sequence of feature vectors and the attention module concentrates on a plurality of Regions-of-interest (ROIs) of the sequence of feature vectors, wherein the ROIs are specific to a class label of chromosomes.

  • Patent number: 10621474
    Abstract: The most challenging problems in karyotyping are segmentation and classification of overlapping chromosomes in metaphase spread images. Often chromosomes are bent in different directions with varying degrees of bend. Tediousness and time consuming nature of the effort for ground truth creation makes it difficult to scale the ground truth for training phase. The present disclosure provides an end-to-end solution that reduces the cognitive burden of segmenting and karyotyping chromosomes. Dependency on experts is reduced by employing crowdsourcing while simultaneously addressing the issues associated with crowdsourcing. Identified segments through crowdsourcing are pre-processed to improve classification achieved by employing deep convolutional network (CNN).
