  • Patent number: 10880541
    Abstract: Stereo correspondence and depth sensor techniques are described. In one or more implementations, a depth map generated by a depth sensor is leveraged as part of processing of stereo images to assist in identifying which parts of stereo images correspond to each other. The depth map, for instance, may be utilized to assist in identifying depth discontinuities in the stereo images. Additionally, techniques may be employed to align the depth discontinuities identified from the depth map to image edges identified from the stereo images. Techniques may also be employed to suppress image edges that do not correspond to the depth discontinuities of the depth map in comparison with image edges that do correspond to the depth discontinuities as part of the identification.

  • Patent number: 10521567
    Abstract: Techniques and systems are described to support digital image processing through use of an image repository, e.g., a stock image database or other storage. In one example, a plurality of candidate digital images are obtained from an image repository based on a target digital image. A plurality of transformations are generated to be applied to the target digital image, each transformation based on a respective candidate digital image. Semantic information is employed as part of the transformations, e.g., blending, filtering, or alignment. A plurality of transformed target digital images are generated based at least in part through application of the plurality of transformations to the target image.

  • Patent number: 10460033
    Abstract: Techniques and systems are described to model and extract knowledge from images. A digital medium environment is configured to learn and use a model to compute a descriptive summarization of an input image automatically and without user intervention. Training data is obtained to train a model using machine learning in order to generate a structured image representation that serves as the descriptive summarization of an input image. The images and associated text are processed to extract structured semantic knowledge from the text, which is then associated with the images. The structured semantic knowledge is processed along with corresponding images to train a model using machine learning such that the model describes a relationship between text features within the structured semantic knowledge. Once the model is learned, the model is usable to process input images to generate a structured image representation of the image.

  • Patent number: 10441345
    Abstract: A generator is disclosed to generate a drive signal to a surgical device. The generator includes an ultrasonic generator module to generate a first drive signal to drive an ultrasonic device, an electrosurgery/radio frequency (RF) generator module to generate a second drive signal to drive an electrosurgical device, and a foot switch coupled to each of the ultrasonic generator module and the electrosurgery/RF generator module. The foot switch is configured to operate in a first mode when the ultrasonic device is coupled to the ultrasonic generator module and the foot switch is configured to operate in a second mode when the electrosurgical device is coupled to the electrosurgery/RF generator module. The generator further includes a user interface to provide feedback in accordance with the operation of any one of the ultrasonic device and the electrosurgical device in accordance with a predetermined algorithm.

  • Patent number: 10430973
    Abstract: Techniques and systems are described to recolor a group of images for color consistency. Techniques include extracting color palettes for images of the group of images and generating a group theme color palette based on the color palettes for the images. Image color palettes are then mapped to the group theme color palette and the images are modified in response to the mapping. In some examples, the mapping includes discouraging multiple colors of a single color palette from mapping to a single color of the group theme color palette. Additionally, or alternatively, the mapping includes discouraging a forced mapping of a dissimilar color of an image color palette from mapping to the group theme color palette.

  • Patent number: 10346996
    Abstract: Image depth inference techniques and systems from semantic labels are described. In one or more implementations, a digital medium environment includes one or more computing devices to control a determination of depth within an image. Regions of the image are semantically labeled by the one or more computing devices. At least one of the semantically labeled regions is decomposed into a plurality of segments formed as planes generally perpendicular to a ground plane of the image. Depth of one or more of the plurality of segments is then inferred based on relationships of respective segments with respective locations of the ground plane of the image. A depth map is formed that describes depth for the at least one semantically labeled region based at least in part on the inferred depths for the one or more of the plurality of segments.
