  • Publication number: 20200258313
    Abstract: Systems, devices, media, and methods are presented for object detection and inserting graphical elements into an image stream in response to detecting the object. The systems and methods detect an object of interest in received frames of a video stream. The systems and methods identify a bounding box for the object of interest and estimate a three-dimensional position of the object of interest based on a scale of the object of interest. The systems and methods generate one or more graphical elements having a size based on the scale of the object of interest and a position based on the three-dimensional position estimated for the object of interest. The one or more graphical elements are generated within the video stream to form a modified video stream. The systems and methods cause presentation of the modified video stream including the object of interest and the one or more graphical elements.

  • Publication number: 20200235995
    Abstract: Provided are an architecture, method and apparatus for realizing communication between network functions. An interworking interface between the network function and a selected interface function which is in the same communication domain with the network function is identical to an interworking interface between the network function and a destination network function which is in the same communication domain with the network function. With the architecture, the network function and the interface function are decoupled. The network function can realize the interworking with the network function inside the communication domain as well as the interworking with a destination network function outside the communication domain by only one type of interworking interface, so that the logic of the network functions becomes simple, thereby simplifying the design of the network functions and greatly reducing the development and deployment difficulties of the network functions.
