  • Patent number: 10329494
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a system and a process for producing biofuel. The system comprises at least one feed tank; a low pressure pump; a high pressure pump; a first heat exchanger; a second heat exchanger; a reaction vessel; a precipitation vessel; a first pressure let-down station; a third heat exchanger; a second pressure let-down station; a gas-liquid separator; and a biofuel separator. The process comprises pressurizing and heating a feed, followed by reforming the pressurized and heated feed to obtain a slurry. The solids are separated from the slurry by precipitation to obtain a mixture comprising biofuel and the non-reformed feed. The mixture is then cooled and de-pressurized, followed by separation of gases and the non-reformed feed to obtain the biofuel. The system and process of the present disclosure can be used to produce biofuel from diverse, easily available and inexpensive starting material.

  • Patent number: 10324969
    Abstract: A device may receive a first textual document and a set of second textual documents. The first textual document may identify parameters. The device may process the first textual document, based on a natural language processing algorithm, to identify first values corresponding to the parameters. The device may process the plurality of second textual documents, based on the natural language processing algorithm, to identify second values corresponding to the parameters. Each of the plurality of second textual documents may be associated with one or more respective second values of the second values. The device may determine scores for the plurality of second textual documents. A score may be determined based on comparing one or more of the first values to one or more of the second values associated with a second textual document. The device may provide information identifying the plurality of second textual documents and the scores.

  • Publication number: 20180341999
    Abstract: An online system acts as a centralized, trusted intermediary in managing subscription products that a user of the online system has subscribed to. For example, a user may subscribe to receive a product from a variety of different third party systems. The user of the online system provides payment information and authorization information to the online system which stores them in association with a user profile belonging to the user of the online system. When a payment is required for a subscription product, the online system retrieves the payment information and verifies that the online system is authorized to provide a payment. Once verified, the online system provides a payment on behalf of the user to the third party system in exchange for provision of the subscription product to the user.

  • Publication number: 20180336574
    Abstract: A method is disclosed which includes: receiving, from a third-party content provider, a link to a structured document on an external server, where the link is associated with a post of the online social network by the third-party content provider, and retrieving the structured document from the external server, where the structured document includes content and input fields.. This step is followed by extracting a predefined set of information from the structured document about the content and input fields of the structured document. The extracted set of information from the structured document are then evaluated to determine one or more feature-values of the structured document. A machine learning model is used to classify the structured document as an external lead-generation type page based on the one or more feature-values of the structured document and a notification is sent to the third-party content provider if the structured document is classified as an external lead-generation type page.

  • Patent number: 8732161
    Abstract: Architecture and its implementation of an event-based media management system and method are disclosed. A generic model for events is used for developing architecture for media management, called Eventcentric Media Management (EMMa) system. The system focuses on event experiences and provides flexible functionality for media management. The system and method analyze cross-media files for features to extract atomic events and apply algorithms to cluster files including similar or related features. Thus, the EMMa system allows unified media indexing of multiple media types, better abstraction of the real world, use of context, media processing operations to compute and store features and tags, and a more intuitive support for multiple users. It provides environments for querying and browsing media related to events and authoring of multimedia presentations for sharing with other individuals.

  • Patent number: 8094948
    Abstract: A method of classifying and organizing digital images utilizing optical metadata (captured using multiple sensors on the camera) may define semantically coherent image classes or annotations. The method defines optical parameters based on the physics of vision and operation of a camera to cluster related images for future search and retrieval. An image database constructed using photos taken by at least thirty different users over a six year period on four different continents was tested using algorithms to construct a hierarchal clustering model to cluster related images. Additionally, a survey about the most frequent image classes shot by common people forms a baseline model for automatic annotation of images for search and retrieval by query keyword.

  • Patent number: 6121969
    Abstract: A similarity-based database of images, where images are preferably ranked and correlated in correspondence to biological preattentive similarity, supports a new type of interface for visual navigation within the database to the end that a human may perceive not only selected images resultant from a query, but the relationship between the selected images. In particular, navigation is within a display space whose geometric characteristics depend on the geometry of the perceptual space in which image similarity is measured. The display space is a subset of the three dimensional Euclidean space that, for many of the distance functions appropriate to the images, is contained in the unit cube. The perceptual intuition of the metric is given (i) in part by the distribution of images in the space, and (ii) in part by making the motion of the user uniform with respect to the metric of the space.

  • Patent number: 5983237
    Abstract: A system and method for improving the retrieval performance of a query engine in a visual information retrieval (VIR) system by encoding domain-specific knowledge into the VIR system through a visual dictionary or "victionary". The victionary is a dictionary-like information-mapping module that is used to retrieve visual information at a "semantic" level. A VIR system that performs generic image processing is enhanced by adding a query transformation unit and a query expansion unit, i.e., the victionary. With these additional components, a user may present a query either as a text term (such as a keyword or phrase), or as an image (with weights) and execute a "semantic query". During semantic query processing, the victionary-enhanced system transforms the user's original term (or image query) to a set of equivalent queries, and internally executes all the equivalent queries before presenting the results to the user.

  • Patent number: 5915250
    Abstract: A system and method for content-based search and retrieval of visual objects. A base visual information retrieval (VIR) engine utilizes a set of universal primitives to operate on the visual objects. An extensible VIR engine allows custom, modular primitives to be defined and registered. A custom primitive addresses domain specific problems and can utilize any image understanding technique. Object attributes can be extracted over the entire image or over only a portion of the object. A schema is defined as a specific collection of primitives. A specific schema implies a specific set of visual features to be processed and a corresponding feature vector to be used for content-based similarity scoring. A primitive registration interface registers custom primitives and facilitates storing of an analysis function and a comparison function to a schema table. A heterogeneous comparison allows objects analyzed by different schemas to be compared if at least one primitive is in common between the schemas.
