  • Patent number: 10726540
    Abstract: A method for object defect detection includes receiving digital data representing an image of an object with a repeated pattern. The method identifies a part of the image of the object as defined by a sample window of the digital data. The method generates one or more functions from at least the part of the image, wherein each of the one or more functions corresponds to one component of a pixel contained in the part of the image. Responsive to performing self-similarity analytics on the one or more functions, the method identifies a defect area of the object.

  • Patent number: 10628890
    Abstract: A system, a computer readable storage medium, and a method for detecting insurance fraud or for comparing references use visual analytics-based techniques. The method can include identifying a scratch and a scratch location on a vehicle in a 3-dimensional rendering in comparison to a base image or in comparison to a stored image in a database, comparing one or more features of the scratch such as color features of the scratch in the scratch location in comparison to the scratch location or comparing one or more texture features of the scratch in the scratch location in comparison to the scratch location in the base image or the stored image. The method can further generate a similarity calculation based on the one or more comparisons for the scratch, the scratch location, the one or more scratch features of the scratch and presents a result in response to the similarity calculation.

  • Publication number: 20190084369
    Abstract: A method to train a machine learning model for in-vehicle air quality control in a knowledge-based system, executed by one or more computer processors, includes collecting data related to in-vehicle air quality from a plurality of probe cars where the data is collected by various on-board systems in each probe car. The method includes correlating the data related to in-vehicle air quality from each probe car with air quality measurements from each probe car, where the correlation is used to update the machine learning model. The method includes determining a situation when an in-vehicle air quality measurement of the air quality measurements is above a pre-determined in-vehicle air quality level and determining instructions for actions by one or more of the one or more on-board systems in each of the probe cars to maintain an in-vehicle air quality level at or below the pre-determined in-vehicle air quality level.
