  • Patent number: 11403786
    Abstract: Embodiments of present disclosure disclose method and system for generating a medical image based on a textual data in a medical report. For generation, a textual data from each of one or more medical reports of the patient is retrieved. The textual data comprises one or more medical events and corresponding one or more attributes associated with each of the one or more medical reports. Further, a matching score for each of plurality of reference images is computed based on the textual data, using a first machine learning model. Upon computing the matching score, one or more images are selected from the plurality of reference images based on the matching score associated with each of the plurality of reference images. The medical image for the patient is generated based on the one or more images and the textual data using a second machine learning model.

    Abstract: Methods and systems for applying a vignette effect to a rendered computer-generated image are presented. A kernel image including a kernel shape is overlaid on a control image including a vignette shape, creating a region where the kernel shape and control image overlap. A region of the rendered image corresponding to the overlapping region is blurred based on the shape of the overlapping region. A vignetting factor indicating a loss in intensity as a result of the blurring is computed based on the area of the overlapping region and the area of the kernel shape. The intensity of the blurred region is scaled upward based on the vignetting factor. The position of the kernel image on the control shape is shifted, resulting in a new overlapping region.

  • Patent number: 11255164
    Abstract: Dynamically combining graphical information from multiple windows displayed in a graphical user interface includes displaying a first window including a first graphic representation of a first data set, and a second window including a second graphic representation of a second data set. An overlap condition is detected by constantly monitoring a boundary of the first window and a boundary of the second window. In response to detecting the overlap condition, the first data set and the second data set are processed to identify a first and second set of attributes of the first and second data sets, respectively. A third set of attributes is determined, whereby the third set of attributes is common to the first set of attributes and the second set of attributes. A third window including a third graphic representation is generated and displayed based on the first graphic representation and the third set of attributes.

  • Patent number: 11250548
    Abstract: Digital image completion using deep learning is described. Initially, a digital image having at least one hole is received. This holey digital image is provided as input to an image completer formed with a framework that combines generative and discriminative neural networks based on learning architecture of the generative adversarial networks. From the holey digital image, the generative neural network generates a filled digital image having hole-filling content in place of holes. The discriminative neural networks detect whether the filled digital image and the hole-filling digital content correspond to or include computer-generated content or are photo-realistic. The generating and detecting are iteratively continued until the discriminative neural networks fail to detect computer-generated content for the filled digital image and hole-filling content or until detection surpasses a threshold difficulty.

  • Patent number: 11243786
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to the transfer of visuals (e.g., window visuals) over virtual frames that may be stored in any number of video frames of one or more video streams. The visuals may be split into two-dimensional (2D) pages of a virtual frame, with each of the 2D pages being a fraction of the size of video frames of the video stream(s). The virtual frame may be encoded to the video frames of the video stream(s) and later reconstructed in accordance with a page table.

  • Patent number: 11240570
    Abstract: In an approach, a processor determines respective resolution levels for a plurality of objects, presented in a video segment to be rendered, based on a relationship between a primary object and at least one remaining object of the plurality of objects. A processors, determines, from the video segment, a plurality of object-based video elements at the determined respective resolution levels, each of the plurality of object-based video elements corresponding to one of the plurality of objects. A processor causes the plurality of object-based video elements to be delivered for rendering the video segment.

  • Patent number: 11227355
    Abstract: In one example embodiment, an information processing apparatus generates and causes a display device to display a first thumbnail image which is associated with annotation information. Using a size of the first thumbnail image, the information processing apparatus determines a display size of a first annotation which corresponds to the annotation information. Using the determined display size, the information processing apparatus determines a second annotation. In one example embodiment, the information processing apparatus causes a display device to display the determined second annotation overlapping the first thumbnail image.

  • Patent number: 11221819
    Abstract: An extendable augmented reality (AR) system for recognizing objects. The AR system may incorporate plugins to improve the AR system's ability to recognize objects, such as by adding external matchable data or using external recognition algorithms. The plugins may be installed/activated dynamically by a user to expand the system's AR capabilities. The AR system may also incorporate plugins to improve the AR system's post-recognition features such as supplying a user with supplemental content or follow-up functionality. The AR system may filter communications with the plugins to centralize identification processes, to shield plugins, and to ensure plugins are only activated at appropriate times.

  • Patent number: 11204733
    Abstract: An electronic device having a display, radio frequency (RF) circuitry, and one or more input devices, displays a first user interface on the display. While displaying the first user interface, the electronic device detects a pairing request to pair a first peripheral with the electronic device. In response to detecting the pairing request, the electronic device pairs the first peripheral with the electronic device, and after the first peripheral is paired with the electronic device, the electronic device concurrently displays status information of the first peripheral and a second peripheral, wherein the first peripheral is coupled to the second peripheral, or the first peripheral and second peripheral are both coupled to a third peripheral.

  • Patent number: 11200743
    Abstract: A virtual-reality that includes multiple different features therein, those features arranged in a combined wall. The user can select from the multiple features by looking at the features for a specified amount of time for example 3 seconds. One embodiment uses a wall which combines together a number of feeds from a number of social networks. Another embodiment uses a wall that is cylindrical or spherical around the user, and a system that detects which post or item the user is looking at. When the user looks at a poster item for more than the specified amount of time, additional information about that poster item pops up. For example the user can look it up icon representing their friend, and get information about their friend including the ability to message the friend, posts that the friend has made, and other information about the friend. There can also be navigation pains in places in the virtual-reality cylinder or sphere which enables navigating using a different kind of menu.
