  • Patent number: 10679330
    Abstract: The present disclosure addresses the technical problem of enabling automated inferencing of changes in spatio-temporal images by leveraging the high level robust features extracted from a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) trained on varied contexts instead of data dependent feature methods. Unsupervised clustering on the high level features eliminates the cumbersome requirement of labeling the images. Since models are not trained on any specific context, any image may be accepted. Real time inferencing is enabled by a certain combination of unsupervised clustering and supervised classification. A cloud-edge topology ensures real time inferencing even when connectivity is not available by ensuring updated classification models are deployed on the edge. Creating a knowledge ontology based on adaptive learning enables inferencing of an incoming image with varying levels of precision. Precision farming may be an application of the present disclosure.

    Abstract: Disclosed in some examples are real-time video classifier systems, methods, devices, and machine readable mediums that determine whether or not to submit a current video frame to a classifier based upon a similarity score that measures a similarity between the current video frame and previous video frames found by the classifier to contain the feature of interest. For example, a similarity score may be calculated for a current video frame and a previous video frame found by the classifier to contain a feature of interest. The current video frame may be submitted to the classifier only if the similarity score is below a threshold similarity score. That is, only video frames that are sufficiently different from previous images that were found as containing the feature of interest are presented to the classifier.

  • Patent number: 10657444
    Abstract: A method and system where a first subsystem makes observations and performs surveillance using sensors in a mode that conserves a resource such as power, data transmission band width or processing cycles. This is accomplished by reducing illumination, pixel count, sampling rate or other functions that result in a limited granularity or data collection rate. A machine model is applied to the limited data and, when it evaluates to a suitable result or a prediction of an interesting condition, another subsystem or the same subsystem in a different mode collects data at a finer granularity with a higher data collection size or rate and evaluates that data to determine the nature of the first evaluation. The machine model may be trained in stages on a large scale server and on a small field processor. Data from the sensor may be used for training to improve the second step.

  • Patent number: 10565425
    Abstract: Provided are an under-screen biometric identification apparatus, a biometric identification component and a terminal device. The under-screen biometric identification apparatus includes: a display screen and a biometric identification module, where the biometric identification module is fixedly disposed under the display screen, and there is a gap between the biometric identification module and the display screen. In an embodiment of the present application, the biometric identification module and a lower surface of the display screen are designed to be separated, which can reduce difficulty of disassembling the biometric identification module, thereby improving maintainability of the terminal device. Further, complexity of manufacturing the biometric identification module under the display screen can be reduced and a production success rate can be enhanced, and thus production cost is reduced.
