  • Patent number: 11120298
    Abstract: According to an embodiment, a computing device includes a processing circuitry. The processing circuitry receives an input of tensor data. The processing circuitry sets a window in the tensor data. The processing circuitry compares, for each pair of coordinates in the tensor data within the window, a pixel value at the pair of coordinates with one or more thresholds, and selects a weight value corresponding to a comparison result. The processing circuitry adds the weight values selected for the respective pairs of coordinates to obtain a cumulative value. The processing circuitry derives a value based at least in part on the cumulative value.
