  • Patent number: 7254481
    Abstract: An action support apparatus displays a destination specification screen for specifying a destination, and receives from the user a specification of a general destination. If a general destination is specified, then the apparatus determines a detailed destination, referencing a knowledge DB. If there is a plurality of detailed destinations with respect to the general destination, then any one of them is set to the user's destination. Next, the apparatus sets the current location as the starting point, and generates a planned route from the starting point to the destination based on a map DB and an internal clock. Furthermore, the apparatus reads a filtering rule from a filtering DB, and extracts as recommended information facility information of facilities suited to the user from a facility information DB. Depending on the filtering rule, it is also acceptable to use user information in a user DB in the extraction of the recommended information.

  • Patent number: 6999605
    Abstract: A window picture (robust window picture) is selected as a model window picture, which is unlikely to be influenced by the variations in an environment and selected irrespective of the variations in an environment of pictures assumed to be inputted in a recognition phase. Alternatively, a window picture (stable window picture) is selected as a model window picture, in which the changes in a feature value are small even though an environment is varied. For example, a tracking window picture group is obtained from a registered picture group in which an environment is continuously varied, by tracking window pictures of a basic registered picture. Then, a static extraction window picture is obtained by extracting window pictures as independent pictures from a series of pictures. Then, a window picture selected both in the tracking window picture group and in the static extraction window picture is set as a robust window picture, and picture matching is conducted using the robust window picture.

  • Patent number: 6888955
    Abstract: The variations in appearance of an object caused by the variations in a capturing environment are estimated to be modeled, and the object model thus obtained is previously registered in a database. Picture information of an object to be a recognition target is input, and the input picture information is matched with the previously registered object model. The similarity with respect to the registered object model is determined, and the type of the object to be a recognition target is output, which is determined to be most similar among the registered object models. Information of a plurality of pictures captured by changing the relative position and posture of an object is input, and the variations in appearance of an object caused by the possible variations in a capturing environment are estimated to be modeled based on the input information of a plurality of pictures.

  • Patent number: 6804420
    Abstract: A plurality of thumbnails to be used as retrieval keys are indicated by a retrieving key indicating section. Respective feature vector of the retrieval keys are extracted by a feature vector extracting section. A retrieval feature vector selecting section selects, among elements of feature vector of each retrieval key, a prescribed number of elements in a distance average ascending order as retrieval feature vector. A retrieving section retrieves information stored in an information storing section by using the retrieval feature vector. An arrangement feature vector selecting section selects, as arrangement feature vector, among elements of feature vector of the retrieval key, the feature vector elements that have not been extracted as the elements of retrieval feature vector. Elements of feature vector selected in a dispersion descending order in the retrieval results are preferable.

  • Publication number: 20040193586
    Abstract: A database search system for searching a database for data measures an input number of search conditions input during a period from a start to an end of search processing or a necessary time taken from the start to the end of the search processing, receives an input of a message describing know-how information corresponding to contents of the search processing from a user, in a case where the measured input number exceeds a predetermined threshold value, and stores the input message under a condition that the input message is associated with a predetermined search condition during an execution period of the search processing. During execution of the search processing, the search conditions input by the user are compared with stored search conditions every time the search conditions are received, and in a case where a plurality of or more search conditions are matched with each other, the associated message is output to the user.

  • Publication number: 20020087426
    Abstract: An article picture is previously obtained through an information obtaining part, and a data sending rank setting part sets a sending rank showing a sending priority. A picture feature analyzing part extracts picture features and stores article data in an article data storing part. When search conditions are input, an article search processing part conducts a search. Search results are given to an article picture arrangement data generating part, and article picture arrangement data is given to a data sending control part. Under the control of a sending order by the data sending control part, each article picture data is sent to a user terminal in accordance with a sending rank, and displayed at an arrangement position on a screen of search results in accordance with the sending rank.
