  • Patent number: 10846933
    Abstract: An augmented reality (AR) object positioning system receives a target coordinate for a location of interest within a physical environment. The AR object positioning system then determines an AR device coordinate of an AR device within the physical environment and orientation information of the AR device at the AR device coordinate. The AR object positioning system calculates a plurality of image frame coordinates of an image frame based on the AR device coordinate and the orientation information when the image frame was captured. The AR object positioning system, in response to an image frame coordinate of the plurality of image frame coordinates corresponding with the target coordinate, renders on a display of the AR device, first annotation content relative to the image frame coordinate according to rendering instructions for the first annotation content.

  • Patent number: 10848687
    Abstract: Various client devices include displays and one or more image capture devices configured to capture video data. Different users of an online system may authorize client devices to exchange information captured by their respective image capture devices. Additionally, a sending client device captures and transmits video data to a receiving client, while receiving one or more video presentation settings of the receiving client device. The sending client device applies one or more models to the captured video data and compares output from the models to the video presentation settings of the receiving client device. Based on the comparison, the sending client device provides suggested modifications to one or more video presentation settings to the receiving client device. For example, the sending client device provides a suggestion to reorient a display device of the receiving client device.

  • Patent number: 10769838
    Abstract: A graphics processing system can divide a render output into plural larger patches, with each larger patch encompassing plural smaller patches. A rasteriser of the system tests a larger patch against a primitive to be processed to determine if the primitive covers the larger patch. When it is determined that the primitive only partially covers the larger patch, the larger patch is sub-divided into plural smaller patches and at least one of the smaller patches is re-tested against the primitive. Conversely, when it is determined that the primitive completely covers the larger patch, the larger patch is output from the rasteriser in respect of the primitive for processing by a subsequent stage, of the graphics processing system. The system can provide efficient, hierarchal, processing of primitives, whilst helping to prevent the output of the rasteriser from becoming blocked.

  • Patent number: 10755142
    Abstract: The technology disclosed uses a combination of an object detector and an object tracker to process video sequences and produce tracks of real-world images categorized by objects detected in the video sequences. The tracks of real-world images are used to iteratively train and re-train the object detector and improve its detection rate during a so-called “training cycle”. Each training cycle of improving the object detector is followed by a so-called “training data generation cycle” that involves collaboration between the improved object detector and the object tracker. Improved detection by the object detector causes the object tracker to produce longer and smoother tracks tagged with bounding boxes around the target object. Longer and smoother tracks and corresponding bounding boxes from the last training data generation cycle are used as ground truth in the current training cycle until the object detector's performance reaches a convergence point.

  • Patent number: 10740941
    Abstract: A technique for combining first and second images respectively depicting first and second subject matter to facilitate virtual presentation. A first image depicting the first subject matter may be received digital form. A second image depicting the second subject matter may also be received digital form. The second image may be image-processed in various ways to prepare the second subject matter for virtual presentation with the first subject matter. A composite image may be generated that depicts the second subject matter overlayed onto the first subject matter. The composite image may be caused to be displayed in a virtual presentation.

  • Patent number: 10725720
    Abstract: Examples provide for intelligent navigation of informational items within an augmented reality environment. A hierarchical set of informational items within the augmented reality environment is automatically generated. A current level in the hierarchy includes items currently within a field of view (FOV), a current topic of conversation, items associated with user movements, or items selected by the user. A transient user interface control directed to the current group of informational items and a contextual breadcrumb list is generated and displayed within the FOV. An action is performed on a selected group of informational items based on input received from the user via the transient user interface control. The results of the performed action are presented to the user within the FOV.

  • Patent number: 10725637
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can provide one or more options to adjust, in a virtual three-dimensional space, an image in an initial perspective. At least a first command, provided based on the one or more options, to adjust the image from the initial perspective into an adjusted perspective can be detected. The image can be adjusted, based on at least the first command, into the adjusted perspective in the virtual three-dimensional space to produce an adjusted image. A second command to modify a viewable area of the adjusted image can be detected. At least a portion of the adjusted image can be automatically fitted, when the second command has ceased, within a specified display area while one or more empty regions can be minimized in the specified display area.

  • Patent number: 10719920
    Abstract: In some embodiments, an image manipulation application receives a two-dimensional background image and projects the background image onto a sphere to generate a sphere image. Based on the sphere image, an unfilled environment map containing a hole area lacking image content can be generated. A portion of the unfilled environment map can be projected to an unfilled projection image using a map projection. The unfilled projection image contains the hole area. A hole filling model is applied to the unfilled projection image to generate a filled projection image containing image content for the hole area. A filled environment map can be generated by applying an inverse projection of the map projection on the filled projection image and by combining the unfilled environment map with the generated image content for the hole area of the environment map.

  • Patent number: 10706593
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for image reconstruction using target attribute assisted compressive sensing, including an initializing step, a subspace partitioning step, an atom set updating step, a sparse coefficient updating step and an outputting step. The present invention further provides a system for image reconstruction using target attribute assisted compressive sensing. A technical scheme provided by the present invention will introduce auxiliary information capable of reflecting target features into subspace partitioning in a case of unknown sparseness of a small target image signal, thereby accurately and effectively selecting the most closely matching dictionary subspace, and realizing efficient and rapid reconstruction of the small target image signal.

  • Patent number: 10699427
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are disclosed for reporting texture footprint information. A texture footprint identifies the portion of a texture that will be utilized in rendering a pixel in a scene. The disclosed methods and apparatuses advantageously improve system efficiency in decoupled shading systems by first identifying which texels in a given texture map are needed for subsequently rendering a scene. Therefore, the number of texels that are generated and stored may be reduced to include the identified texels. Texels that are not identified need not be rendered and/or stored.
