  • Patent number: 10325146
    Abstract: There is provided a framework including systems and methods for analyzing skin parameters from images or videos showing skin. Using a series of Hierarchical Differential Image Filters (HDIF), it becomes possible to detect different skin features such as wrinkles, spots, and roughness. The hierarchical differential image filter computes two enhancements to an image showing skin at two different levels of enhancement, determines a differential image using the two enhancements and computes the skin analysis rating using the differential image. These skin ratings are comparably accurate to actual ratings by dermatologists.

  • Publication number: 20190043113
    Abstract: A system and method compute, store and use relativity measures between events in datasets where the measures are stored in a relational memory for querying. From user data and e-commerce shopping session data, relativity measures are computed for a plurality of subsets of data attributes of the user data and session data, each subset comprising two or more data attributes. The relativity measures individually or when combined represent conditional relativities between a set of events within the session data. Only the relativity measures are stored to the relational memory. The measures may be queried for results and applied to the e-commerce service (e.g. to determine which specific product data to present or an order of the presentation of the specific product data). The relativity measures may be computed only for pre-selected relations between particular data attributes which give desired trends and insights into user shopping using the e-commerce service.

  • Publication number: 20190026013
    Abstract: Provided is a method and system of providing a cosmetics enhancement interface. The method comprises showing, at the display screen of a computing device having a memory and a processor: a digital photograph including facial features; an interactive dialog portion reflecting a conversational input received and a subsequent response provided thereto from the computing device; and a product display portion; receiving an inquiry, as reflected in the interactive dialog portion, related to a cosmetic product for application onto a selected facial feature; receiving a selection of the cosmetic product based on a matching to the at least one facial feature according to a predefined rule; displaying, at the product display portion, a product representation associated with the selected cosmetic product; receiving an update request; and updating the digital photograph showing a modification to the facial feature on the display screen by simulating application of the selected cosmetic product thereon.

  • Publication number: 20180300589
    Abstract: This document relates to hybrid eye center localization using machine learning, namely cascaded regression and hand-crafted model fitting to improve a computer. There are proposed systems and methods of eye center (iris) detection using a cascade regressor (cascade of regression forests) as well as systems and methods for training a cascaded regressor. For detection, the eyes are detected using a facial feature alignment method. The robustness of localization is improved by using both advanced features and powerful regression machinery. Localization is made more accurate by adding a robust circle fitting post-processing step. Finally, using a simple hand-crafted method for eye center localization, there is provided a method to train the cascaded regressor without the need for manually annotated training data. Evaluation of the approach shows that it achieves state-of-the-art performance.

  • Patent number: 9928601
    Abstract: Based on a multi-step process, an automatic hair segmentation method and system are disclosed. By extracting various information components from an image, including background color, face position, hair color, skin color, and skin mask, a heuristic-based method is created for the detection and segmentation of hair that can detect hair with an accuracy of approximately 75% and with a false hair overestimation error of 34%. Furthermore, it is shown that down sampling the image down to a face width of 25 px results in a 73% reduction in computation time with insignificant change in detection accuracy.

  • Patent number: 9235602
    Abstract: A web-based application provides more accurate and clearer methods of searching, sorting, and displaying a set of images stored in a database. A first aspect of the present invention is the method by which image data is stored. Typical content-based systems use color information, whereas the present invention uses an image-location tagging method. A second aspect of the present invention is the method by which the set of images are sorted in relevancy. Tag data of the images allows for a new and last method of searching through an entire set. A third aspect of the present invention is the method by which the sorted images are displayed to the user. Instead of the common method of just displaying the images in a rectangular array, where each image is the same size, the web-based application positions and sizes each image based on how relevant it is.
