  • Publication number: 20210070221
    Abstract: In one example, a computing device includes one or more user input detection components, and one or more processors configured to receive an indication of a first user input detected by the one or more user input detection components, responsive to receiving the indication of the first user input, adjust a level of an attention buffer at a defined rate; responsive to determining that the level of the attention buffer satisfies a first threshold, prevent further interaction with a user interface of the computing device, responsive to determining that an indication of a second user input has not been received within a time period, adjust a level of the attention buffer, and responsive to determining that the level of the attention buffer satisfies a second threshold, allow further interaction with the user interface.

  • Publication number: 20200380702
    Abstract: A method of tracking a face includes determining a current frame from video stream data in response to receiving a face tracking instruction; detecting a position of a face in the current frame, and obtaining a historical motion trajectory of the face in the current frame; predicting the position of the face in the current frame based on the historical motion trajectory to obtain a predicted position of the face; obtaining a correlation matrix of the historical motion trajectory and the face in the current frame based on the predicted position and the detected position; and updating the historical motion trajectory based on the correlation matrix, and tracking the face in a next frame based on the updated historical motion trajectory.

  • Publication number: 20200278972
    Abstract: Identifying relations between items in transactions. Local conditional frequency pattern trees are generated in processing nodes in a computer system. The nodes in the local conditional frequency pattern trees represent items and a frequency of the items in the transactions. Global conditional frequency pattern trees are generated in the processing nodes. Each processing node in the processing nodes generates a global conditional frequency pattern tree using a set of local conditional frequency pattern trees in the processing node. The global conditional frequency pattern trees generated by the processing nodes are distributed such that each processing node in the processing nodes has the global conditional frequency pattern trees generated by other processing nodes. Patterns are generated by the computer system. A set of rules is generated using the patterns and the global conditional frequency pattern trees in the processing nodes, wherein the set of rules define the relations between the items.

    Abstract: A stretching device for moving one end of an elastic ring to a predetermined position is illustrated. The stretching device includes a base member, a handle, a movable member, a rotatable member, at least one connecting bar, and a positioning head fixed to the rotatable member. The handle includes at least one first bar, a first end of the at least one first bar being rotatably connected to the base member. The movable member is slidably mounted on the base member and comprising a blocking section opposite to the base member. The rotatable member includes at least one second bar, a first end of the at least one second bar being rotatably connected to the movable member. Opposite ends of the connecting bar are rotatably connected to a second end of the at least one first bar and a second end of the at least one second bar, respectively.
