  • Patent number: 10546215
    Abstract: A system and method for detecting a potential match between a candidate facial image and a dataset of facial images is described. Some implementations of the invention determine whether a candidate facial image (or multiple facial images) of a person taken, for example, at point of entry corresponds to one or more facial images stored in a dataset of persons of interest (e.g., suspects, criminals, terrorists, employees, VIPs, “whales,” etc.). Some implementations of the invention detect potential fraud in a dataset of facial images. In a first form of potential fraud, a same facial image is associated with multiple identities. In a second form of potential fraud, different facial images are associated with a single identity, as in the case, for example, of identity theft. According to various implementations of the invention, spectral clustering techniques are used to determine a likelihood that pairs of facial images (or pairs of facial image sets) correspond to the person or different persons.

  • Patent number: 10387744
    Abstract: The current document is directed to automated methods and systems, controlled by various constraints and parameters, that identify contours in digital images, including curved contours. Certain of these parameters constrain contour identification to those contours in which the local curvature of a contour does not exceed a threshold local curvature and to those contours orthogonal to intensity gradients of at least threshold magnitudes. The currently described methods and systems identify seed points within a digital image, extend line segments from the seed points as an initial contour coincident with the seed point, and then iteratively extend the initial contour by adding line segments to one or both ends of the contour. The identified contours are selectively combined and filtered in order to identify a set of relevant contours for use in subsequent image-processing tasks.

  • Patent number: 10268878
    Abstract: In real biometric systems, false match rates and false non-match rates of 0% do not exist. There is always some probability that a purported match is false, and that a genuine match is not identified. The performance of biometric systems is often expressed in part in terms of their false match rate and false non-match rate, with the equal error rate being when the two are equal. There is a tradeoff between the FMR and FNMR in biometric systems which can be adjusted by changing a matching threshold. This matching threshold can be automatically, dynamically and/or user adjusted so that a biometric system of interest can achieve a desired FMR and FNMR.

The method for authenticating liveness face comprises: generating a sequence of action instructions randomly; and determining a success of the authentication of the liveness face when face actions are determined to be matched with the sequence of action instructions sequentially. The authentication of the liveness face can be performed based on fine head actions, so that a cost for authenticating the liveness face is decreased, an accuracy of authentication of the liveness face is increased.

  • Patent number: 9916511
    Abstract: An automated system and method to authenticate one or more users based on capturing one or more images of a set of teeth, obtaining a selected image from the one or more captured images and extracting a portion of the selected image to obtain an extracted image. Each extracted image is converted into a grayscale image and stored in a database along with the username and the user keyword of the one or more users. A unique signature matrix and a pattern vector is generated by processing the grayscale image and stored in the database along with the username. One or more images comprising a set of teeth of at least one user is captured and a unique signature matrix obtained from the same is compared with a set of unique signature matrices previously stored in the database and at least one action is triggered based on the comparison.

  • Patent number: 9904925
    Abstract: The present invention provides targeted asset system implementations in contexts where there is limited or no ability to use a real-time return channel for communications from user equipment devices (e.g., STB) to the network. In one arrangement, a household classifier is generated and delivered to user equipment devices. The household classifiers are generated based on third party data and/or network usage information associated with the household. The system and method allow for generating highly accurate household classifications that may be forwarded to individual households where the user equipment device may implant the classifiers to select appropriate assets for delivery to the household.

  • Patent number: 9875504
    Abstract: A method and system is provided for a merchant to display live streaming video feeds of live items, such as marine life, for sale to a buyer through an online e-commerce website. More specifically, the method can include placing the item within a storage vessel, positioning a video recording camera adjacent to the storage vessel, and capturing streaming video from the camera of the item. The method can further include transmitting the streaming video of the item to a client portal, receiving an order request from the client, processing the order request, updating an inventory based on the processed order request, and ceasing transmission of the streaming video to the portal based on the processed order. The method and system provide a simple, automated, and reliable method for a buyer to purchase live items from a merchant wherein the buyer can see exactly the item he or she is purchasing, including the physical condition, configuration, size, health, and overall well-being of the item.

  • Patent number: 9876786
    Abstract: The disclosure herein is related to a method for verifying security data, a system, and a computer-readable storage device. The system includes an application server for providing service, and receiving a service request made by a terminal. The system also includes an authentication server for providing identification authentication for receiving a request made by the application server for verifying the terminal. The authentication server sends a signal to the terminal for initiating an authentication process, and processing authentication with the terminal. The authentication server delivers transaction data for the terminal to complete the service access when the connection between the server and terminal is verified. The terminal is permitted to access the service when the terminal passes the authentication and submits a request form according to the data to the application server.

  • Patent number: 9858405
    Abstract: A system and/or method may be provided to silently authenticate a user. An example method of silently authenticating a user includes receiving a set of device characteristics from a user device and identifying, based on the set of device characteristics, the user device. The method also includes determining whether to trust the user device and determining whether the user device is associated with a user that was previously authenticated. The method further includes in response to determining to trust the user device and that the user device is associated with the user that was previously authenticated, authenticating the user based on the previous authentication.

  • Patent number: 9805691
    Abstract: A display obtains a first image by image capturing, receives, from an external apparatus, a second image generated based on the first image, determines a communication quality with the external apparatus in reception of the second image, and controls to display the second image on a display unit until a value indicating a degree of degradation of the communication quality exceeds a first threshold as a result of determination, and display the first image on the display unit when the value indicating the degree of degradation of the communication quality exceeds the first threshold. The display controls to display the first image until the value indicating the degree of degradation of the communication quality becomes smaller than a second threshold smaller than the first threshold after exceeding the first threshold.
