  • Publication number: 20230018877
    Abstract: Video frames from a video are compressed into a single image or a single data structure that represents a unique visual flowprint or visual signature for a given activity being modeled from the video frames. The flowprint comprises a computed summary of the original pixel values associated with the video frames within the single image and the flowprint is specific to movements occurring within the video frames that are associated with the given activity. In an embodiment, the flowprint is provided as input to a machine-learning algorithm to allow the algorithm to perform object tracking and monitoring from the flowprint rather than from the video frames of the video, which substantially improves processor load and memory utilization on a device that executes the algorithm, and substantially improved responsiveness of the algorithm.

  • Publication number: 20220350808
    Abstract: Techniques for managing real-time business event analysis and monitoring are provided. In some examples, a logical request may be received at a business intelligence server configured with a continuous query service. Additionally, the continuous query service may be configured to translate the logical request into a physical request. Further, business intelligence information may be provided based at least in part on querying against an event data stream with a continuous query configured based at least in part on the physical request translated by the continuous query service.

  • Publication number: 20210295057
    Abstract: A system detects a transaction outcome by obtaining video data associated with a transaction area and analyzing the video data to obtain at least one video transaction parameter concerning transactions associated with the transaction area. The transaction area can be a video count of items indicated in the video data as detected by an automated item detection algorithm applied to the video data. The system obtains at least one expected transaction parameter concerning an expected transaction that occurs in the transaction area, such as a scan count of items scanned at a point of sale terminal. The system automatically compares the video transaction parameter(s) to the expected transaction parameter(s) to identify a transaction outcome that may indicate fraudulent activity such as sweethearting in a retail environment.

  • Publication number: 20210287277
    Abstract: A service may provide an e-commerce platform through which users may search for, view, and purchase products. To ensure users receive relevant results when querying for particular products or product classes, a list of ranked classes may be generated, from which the query results are based. For example, products may be classified into classes and particular text from search data may be associated with one or more of the products based on click log data. For instance, input text from previously performed queries may be associated with products interacted with following those queries (e.g., products clicked on to view/purchase). Training data that associates the particular text with the respective one or more classes into which the clicked on products are classified may be generated, and in response to receiving a query including the particular text as input, the list of ranked classes may be generated based on the training data.

  • Publication number: 20210042528
    Abstract: Detection and prevention of loss at a retail checkout are provided. At least one camera captures video streams during a transaction at a point of sale terminal. The video streams are analyzed to detect a scan activity during the transaction. Transaction data is collected from the point of sale terminal. The scan activity is compared with the transaction data in order to detect discrepancies between the detected scan activity and the scan activity recorded in the transaction data.

  • Patent number: 10796305
    Abstract: A computer system monitors a private network for presence of data traffic. In one embodiment, the private network is a retail environment in which a customer purchases an item scanned at a point-of-sale terminal. The data traffic can be point-of-sale transaction information generated in response to purchase of the item at the point-of-sale terminal. Subsequent to detecting presence of the data traffic in the network, the computer system analyzes the data traffic to identify private information in the data traffic. To protect the private information from improper disclosure to unauthorized entities, the computer system modifies the data traffic. Thus, techniques herein can include detecting occurrence of one or more point-of-sale events in a private network, anonymizing the event information (e.g., data traffic), and forwarding the anonymized event information associated with the point-of-sale events out of the private network to a remote resource.

  • Patent number: 10757627
    Abstract: System and method for seamless switching between operator networks is disclosed. The present invention relates to communication networks and, more particularly, to switching between operators in communication networks. A network element termed as the service aggregator is provided that resides in the operator's network and acts as an intermediate between the mobile user and the operator. In addition, a switching module is provided on the mobile device of the user that interacts with the service aggregator to perform switching. Base station continuously broadcasts signaling information to the mobile device. Based on such signaling information received, the mobile device decides if it wishes to switch to another operator's network. The service aggregator establishes connection with the service gateway of the new network. Further, service aggregator sends handover signal and the mobile device switches seamlessly to the new operator's network.
