  • Patent number: 11403486
    Abstract: Methods and systems for updating the weights of a set of convolution kernels of a convolutional layer of a neural network are described. A set of convolution kernels having attention-infused weights is generated by using an attention mechanism based on characteristics of the weights. For example, a set of location-based attention multipliers is applied to weights in the set of convolution kernels, a magnitude-based attention function is applied to the weights in the set of convolution kernels, or both. An output activation map is generated using the set of convolution kernels with attention-infused weights. A loss for the neural network is computed, and the gradient is back propagated to update the attention-infused weights of the convolution kernels.

  • Patent number: 11367268
    Abstract: Object re-identification refers to a process by which images that contain an object of interest are retrieved from a set of images captured using disparate cameras or in disparate environments. Object re-identification has many useful applications, particularly as it is applied to people (e.g. person tracking). Current re-identification processes rely on convolutional neural networks (CNNs) that learn re-identification for a particular object class from labeled training data specific to a certain domain (e.g. environment), but that do not apply well in other domains. The present disclosure provides cross-domain disentanglement of id-related and id-unrelated factors. In particular, the disentanglement is performed using a labeled image set and an unlabeled image set, respectively captured from different domains but for a same object class.

This process may be repeated to create a training set of union-labeled white light images. A classifier may be trained on this training set. Once trained, the classifier may classify a previously unseen white light image, by predicting union labels for that image. Alternatively, the items that are initially labeled may comprise images captured by two different imaging modalities, or may comprise different types of sensor measurements.

    Abstract: Compositing aware digital image search techniques and systems are described that leverage machine learning. In one example, a compositing aware image search system employs a two-stream convolutional neural network (CNN) to jointly learn feature embeddings from foreground digital images that capture a foreground object and background digital images that capture a background scene. In order to train models of the convolutional neural networks, triplets of training digital images are used. Each triplet may include a positive foreground digital image and a positive background digital image taken from the same digital image. The triplet also contains a negative foreground or background digital image that is dissimilar to the positive foreground or background digital image that is also included as part of the triplet.

  • Patent number: 11263434
    Abstract: Disclosed is a fast side-face interference resistant face detection method, in which a user selects an ordinary image, uses a deep neural network to extract image features, and then determines an exact location of a face. A training method for face detection uses a pure data-driven manner, uses an ordinary face image and a face boundary box as inputs, uses mirror symmetry and Gaussian filtering to perform data augmentation, and uses migration learning and hard example mining to enhance training effects. After a face image is read, the image is firstly scaled, and then placed into the deep neural network to extract features, and generate a plurality of face likelihood boxes and confidence scores of the face likelihood boxes, and finally the most appropriate face likelihood box is selected in a non-maximum suppression manner. No specific requirements are set on an angle of the face image, and a detection effect of a side face is still very obvious.
