  • Publication number: 20220304747
    Abstract: Provided is a high-frequency treatment tool including: a sheath having an inner hole that passes therethrough in a longitudinal direction; a first electrode portion that is formed in a rod shape, that passes through the inner hole of the sheath to protrude from a distal end of the sheath, and that is configured to apply a high-frequency current; a second electrode portion that is disposed at a position at which the second electrode portion is electrically connected with the first electrode portion; and a power source that uses the first electrode portion as a negative electrode, that uses the second electrode portion as a positive electrode, and that supply a current between the first electrode portion and the second electrode portion so that a state in which attached matter attached to the first electrode portion is lifted from the first electrode portion due to osmosis is created.

  • Patent number: 11436717
    Abstract: A first input unit receives an inspection image subject to inspection. A second input unit receives a normal reference image that should be referred to. A processing unit subjects the inspection image input to the first input unit and the reference image input to the second input unit to a process in a neural network. An output unit outputs information that results from the process in the processing unit and relates to an item of defect included in the inspection image.

  • Publication number: 20210027095
    Abstract: A first processing unit detects each of a plurality of patterns included in the image as one of families by subjecting the image to a neural network process. An extraction unit extracts a plurality of parts that include families from the image, based on a position of the families detected. A second processing unit acquires intermediate data for an intermediate layer unique to each family, by subjecting the plurality of parts extracted to a neural network process. A clustering unit subjects the intermediate data acquired to clustering in accordance with the number of types of pattern. A calculation unit calculates a number of patterns included in each cluster that results from clustering.

  • Publication number: 20190331769
    Abstract: An optical sensor includes a light-emitting element unit that emits a signal beam having a predetermined spread centered at a direction of emission and a light-detecting element unit that receives a signal beam reflected by an object to be measured. The light-emitting element unit has a plurality of light-emitting spots including a first light-emitting element and a second light-emitting element that are different in angle of beam spread of the signal beam from each other. Of these light-emitting elements, the second light-emitting element emits a second signal beam that is narrower in angle of beam spread than the first light-emitting element. The optical sensor combines these first and second light-emitting elements to detect the distance to the object to be measured on the basis of a signal beam received by the light-detecting element unit.
