  • Patent number: 11024058
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods for encoding information in a graphic image. The information may be encoded so as to have a visual appearance that adopts a particular style, so that the encoded information is visually pleasing in the environment in which it is displayed. An encoder and decoder are trained during an integrated training process, where the encoder is tuned to minimize a loss when its encoded images are decoded. Similarly, the decoder is also trained to minimize loss when decoding the encoded images. Both the encoder and decoder may utilize a convolutional neural network in some aspects to analyze data and/or images. Once data is encoded, a style from a sample image is transferred to the encoded data. When decoding, the decoder may largely ignore the style aspects of the encoded data and decode based on a content portion of the data.

  • Patent number: 11026113
    Abstract: Disclosed are a measuring method, a base station, and a terminal. The method comprises: a base station transmits to a terminal a switching message of a narrow bandwidth receiving mode, thus instructing the terminal to switch to a specified narrow bandwidth to receive information; when channel state information (CSI) of a downlink channel needs to be measured, the base station schedules the terminal to switch sequentially to at least two different measuring narrow bandwidths to measure a downlink reference signal, where the width of the narrow bandwidth and that of the at least two different measuring narrow bandwidths are less than the width of a system bandwidth. The employment of embodiments of the present invention allows the terminal to flexibly switch between the narrow bandwidth and the system bandwidth, reduces power consumption of the terminal, and implements the measurement of the CSI of the downlink channel at the same time.

  • Publication number: 20210124057
    Abstract: Techniques for enhanced Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) position determination can include capturing an image, from a camera, of obstructions near a mobile device. Orientation information regarding the camera can is used to determine where, in the image, the horizon is situated, and which portions of the sky are blocked by the obstructions from the perspective of the mobile device. Information regarding the location of satellites in the sky is obtained, based on an estimated position of the mobile device. Obstructed satellites can then be identified by comparing the location of the satellites with the obstructed portions of the sky. In a GNSS position determination, information received from the obstructed satellites can then be disregarded or de-weighted accordingly. In some embodiments, the information regarding the blocked portions of the sky can be sent to a server and/or shared with other nearby mobile devices.
