  • Patent number: 10372743
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed to identify entities that have a similar meaning, and may, in embodiments, be grouped into entity groups for knowledge base construction. In embodiments, the entity relations of similarity or non-similarity for an entity pair are predicted as a binary relationship. In embodiments, the prediction may be based upon similarity score between the entities and the entity features, which features are constructed using an entity feature or representation model. In embodiments, the prediction may be an iterative process involving minimum human checking and existing knowledge update. In embodiments, one or more entity groups are formed using graph search from the predicted entity pairs. In embodiments, a group centroid entity may be selected to represent each group based on one or more factors, such as its generality or popularity.

  • Patent number: 10356341
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present invention relate generally to systems and methods for analyzing and manipulating images and video. In particular, a multi-view interactive digital media representation (MVIDMR) of a person can be generated from live images of a person captured from a hand-held camera. Using the image data from the live images, a skeleton of the person and a boundary between the person and a background can be determined from different viewing angles and across multiple images. Using the skeleton and the boundary data, effects can be added to the person, such as wings. The effects can change from image to image to account for the different viewing angles of the person captured in each image.

  • Publication number: 20180167794
    Abstract: Fast channel deployment is achieved amongst subscriber devices (SDs) having an incident scene role at an incident scene. An SD detects an incident scene arrival trigger associated with arrival at an incident scene. Responsive to detecting the incident scene arrival trigger, the SD (i) tunes to a pre-configured incident channel or (ii) scans a plurality of channels for an incident channel and tunes to the incident channel once located. The SD receives, via the incident channel, an incident scene role to traffic channel mapping that maps a particular incident scene role associated with the subscriber device to a particular assigned traffic channel on which subscriber devices associated with a same incident scene role may communicate. The SD tunes to the particular assigned traffic channel as a function of the incident scene role to traffic channel mapping.
