  • Publication number: 20210192005
    Abstract: A proxy-based thin-client web browsing framework enables cooperative web browsing of multiple devices. The multiple devices may include devices that are not intended for web browsing and have limited or no web browsers and/or user input capabilities. The proxy-based thin client web browsing framework employs a virtual browser at a proxy server to perform all browser-engine logics, and retrieve, render and encode web pages on behalf of the multiple devices. The multiple devices therefore only need to have limited decoding and display capabilities to perform web browsing. The proxy-based thin client web browsing framework further includes a touch controller as a remote controller for a device that has no or limited user texting or manipulating capabilities.

  • Patent number: 10997746
    Abstract: Feature descriptor matching described herein may include receiving a first input image and a second input image. A feature detector may detect features from the first and second input images. A descriptor extractor may learn local feature descriptors from the features of the first and second input images based on a feature descriptor matching model trained using a ground truth data set. The descriptor extractor may determine a listwise mean average precision (mAP) rank of a pool of candidate image patches from the second input image with respect to a queried image patch from the first input image based on the feature descriptor matching model, the first set of local feature descriptors, and the second set of local feature descriptors. The descriptor matcher may generate a geometric transformation between the first input image and the second input image based on the listwise mAP and a convolutional neural network.
