  • Patent number: 11679255
    Abstract: An unattended approach can increase the reproducibility and safety of the treatment as the chance of over/under treating of a certain area is significantly decreased. On the other hand, unattended treatment of uneven or rugged areas can be challenging in terms of maintaining proper distance or contact with the treated tissue, mostly on areas which tend to differ from patient to patient (e.g. facial area). Delivering energy via a system of active elements embedded in a flexible pad adhesively attached to the skin offers a possible solution. The unattended approach may include delivering of multiple energies to enhance a visual appearance.

  • Patent number: 11683579
    Abstract: A video gateway device at a worksite (or other location) is coupled to multiple cameras on a network, such as multiple cameras at a business site. The gateway device determines video stream capabilities of each camera and, based on the capabilities, determines whether any additional video steams need to be created for particular cameras. For example, for cameras that provide only a high-resolution video stream, the gateway will generate (e.g., via downsampling) a standard-resolution video stream for artificial intelligence (“AI”) analysis and a low-resolution video stream for viewing by a user. However, for cameras that provide both a high and standard-resolution video stream, the gateway device uses the camera-provided standard-resolution video stream for AI analysis, rather than generating a new video stream on the gateway device.

  • Patent number: 11604938
    Abstract: A camera in a facility acquires an image of a user performing an action, such as shopping. These images may include potentially identifying information, such as an image that includes the user's face. To safeguard privacy of the user, a modified image is generated by changing one or more characteristics of the acquired image. The modification affects the entire image, rendering the resulting image unsuitable for another person to identify the user. For example, a contrast value for the image may be changed, rendering the user unrecognizable. This modification removes the potentially identifying information before later processing takes place. For example, the modified image in which the user's face is obscured may retain other non-identifying information used to train an artificial neural network to recognize actions such as pick or place of items in the facility.
