  • Publication number: 20210136000
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a packet control method and a node device, to improve reliability of a data flow in a transmission process. The method includes: After receiving a pause frame, a first node automatically applies, based on adjustment information that is of a send queue of a data flow and that is recorded in a state record set, the pause frame to all queues associated in an adjustment process of the send queue of the data flow. In this way, a packet loss problem in a data transmission process can be avoided without adjusting an XOFF/XON threshold of a receive queue and without increasing a quantity of pause frames in a network system, thereby improving reliability of the data flow in the transmission process.

A first stage has a hardware processor based 3D regression network for directly generating a space position map for a 3D shape and a camera perspective matrix from a single input image of a face and further having a rendering layer for rendering a partial texture map of the single input image based on the space position map and the camera perspective matrix. A second stage has a hardware processor based two-part stacked Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) including a Texture Completion GAN (TC-GAN) stacked with a 3D Attribute generation GAN (3DA-GAN). The TC-GAN completes the partial texture map to form a complete texture map based on the partial texture map and the space position map. The 3DA-GAN generates a target facial attribute for the single input image based on the complete texture map and the space position map.
