  • Publication number: 20210269847
    Abstract: The purpose of this invention is to provide an inspection method which enables us to judge a microbe's chemical susceptibility quickly, versatile and cheap. The inspection method of this invention's one aspect comprises a step for judging the chemical susceptibility to the antimicrobial of the microbe based on appearance-changing of the observed microbe. The step for judging may judge the chemical susceptibility by obtaining a feature of the plurality of images in the database regarding a plurality of images of microbes which have already been confirmed that they are resistant microbes and a plurality of images of microbes which have already been confirmed that they have susceptibility to an antimicrobial by machine learning and by comparing the images of the microbes with the images in the database based on the feature. Furthermore, the step for judging may judge the chemical susceptibility based on an abundance ratio of the microbe whose appearance changed out of the microbe in the field.

  • Publication number: 20210149029
    Abstract: An image-capturing device includes a sensor, a visible-light-pixel driver, and a non-visible-light-pixel driver. The sensor is configured to have a plurality of visible light pixels having sensitivity to visible light and a plurality of non-visible light pixels having sensitivity to non-visible light. The visible-light-pixel driver controls light exposure to the visible light pixels and a reading operation for charges generated by photoelectric conversion of the visible light pixels resulting from the light exposure. The non-visible-light-pixel driver performs the light exposure to previously-set every two or more non-visible light pixels at the time of the light exposure to the non-visible light pixels and the reading operation, sums the charges generated by the photoelectric conversion of the two or more non-visible light pixels resulting from the light exposure, and creates the distance image on the basis of the summed charges.

  • Patent number: 10942607
    Abstract: A manipulation detection device includes a first manipulation detection process based on detection of light emission of an electronic pen (a first manipulation object) and a second manipulation detection process based on detection of a shadow of a finger (a second manipulation object) by radiation of illumination light. An image sensor captures an image of the electronic pen and an image of the finger, and image signal processing units perform a contrast adjustment of the captured image. Here, a state of the contrast adjustment performed by the image signal processing unit differs between the captured image of the electronic pen and the captured image of the finger. Manipulation detecting units execute a manipulation detection process for the electronic pen and the finger using the captured image which has undergone the contrast adjustment.

  • Publication number: 20210058668
    Abstract: An information processor includes: a user information acquiring unit acquiring user information for identifying a user; a display; a viewing time measuring unit measuring a viewing time during which a previously-registered user views contents information on the display; and a controller. The controller determines whether the user is the registered user, based on the user information and registered user information for identifying the registered user. When the user is the registered user, the controller causes the display to display the contents information, causes the viewing time measuring unit to measure the viewing time, compares a cumulative viewing time that is a total of the viewing times cumulated within a period of time with a viewing limit time that is a previously-set upper limit of the cumulative viewing time, and gives the registered user a warning when the cumulative viewing time is equal to or longer than the viewing limit time.

  • Patent number: 10915186
    Abstract: An operation target device projects a display video onto a projection surface, which is captured by a camera. An operation detectable region specifying unit specifies respective regions where an operation is detectable and is undetectable in a range in which the display video is projected, based on image data captured by the camera. Finger and pen contact position detection units detect the operation to the operation object based on the image data. The operation target device displays the display video so that the region where the operation to the operation object is detectable, which is specified by the operation detectable region specifying unit, is distinguished from the region where the operation to the operation object is undetectable. The operation target device changes a display position of the operation object so the operation object is displayed within a range of the region where the operation to the operation object is detectable.
