On-line Recognition Of Handwritten Characters Patents (Class 382/187)
  • Patent number: 11327571
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to a new computer input and tracking device, and method of using, more particularly, a new type of digital pen which tracks user hand movements to generate series of point coordinates that represent a drawing or hand writing. Unlike prior digital pens such as the Apple Pencil™ or the Microsoft Surface Pen™, the new system does not require users to write on a touch-sensitive surface. Users can write on any surface such as a notebook, a table, a board, or even in mid air. Users can draw two-dimensional or three-dimensional drawings. The new method utilizes a pen marked with one or more groups of distinct tracking marks or tracking patterns and a camera to track the pen in real-time. A computer running a 3D algorithm processes the camera images, detects and distinguishes the tracking marks, and uses the tracking marks to calculate the positions of the tip of the pen in three-dimensional space.

  • Patent number: 11295121
    Abstract: The electronic devices described herein are configured to enhance user experience associated with drawing or otherwise inputting shape data into the electronic devices. Shape input data is identified and matched against known shape patterns and, when a match is found, an entity associated with the shape is determined. The entity is converted into an annotation for rendering and/or displaying to the user. The shape identification, entity determination, and annotation conversion may all be based on one or more context elements to increase the accuracy of the shape interpretation. In particular, elements of conversations held via the electronic devices may be used as context for the shape interpretation. Further, machine learning techniques may be applied based on a variety of feedback data to improve the accuracy, speed, and/or performance of the shape interpretation process.

  • Patent number: 11269694
    Abstract: An API generation system can be used to generate complete (or almost complete) APIs in response to received requests for new or modified APIs. Received API generation requests can include API descriptive data which is augmented to generate a set of data requirements defining one or more inputs and outputs for the API. The API functions can be mapped to one of a set of reference data models defining data types as used by the backend system, and the mappings used to automatically generate an API design defining input and output parameters for each API function of the requested API. The API generation system then assembles a code foundation for the requested API based on a set of software components implementing a portion of the API function and generates API source code based on the code foundation to complete the requested API.

    Abstract: Computer-implemented techniques for sematic image retrieval. According to one technique, digital images are classified into N number of categories based on their visual content. The classification provides a set of N-dimensional image vectors for the digital images. Each image vector contains up to N number of probability values for up to N number of corresponding categories. An N-dimensional image match vector is generated that projects an input keyword query into the vector space of the set of image vectors by computing the vector similarities between a word vector for the input query and a word vector for each of the N number of categories. Vector similarities between the image match vectors and the set of image vectors can be computed to determine images semantically relevant to the input query.

  • Patent number: 11031950
    Abstract: A method of compressive read mapping. A high-resolution homology table is created for the reference genomic sequence, preferably by mapping the reference to itself. Once the homology table is created, the reads are compressed to eliminate full or partial redundancies across reads in the dataset. Preferably, compression is achieved through self-mapping of the read dataset. Next, a coarse mapping from the compressed read data to the reference is performed. Each read link generated represents a cluster of substrings from one or more reads in the dataset and stores their differences from a locus in the reference. Preferably, read links are further expanded to obtain final mapping results through traversal of the homology table, and final mapping results are reported. As compared to prior techniques, substantial speed-up gains are achieved through the compressive read mapping technique due to efficient utilization of redundancy within read sequences as well as the reference.

During classification, the samples in the sample set are clustered at two levels, and the clustering results are recorded in a first vector table and a second vector table. During indexing, indexes are established at two levels for each sample in the sample set, where the first level index points to a coarse cluster center to which the sample belongs, and the second level index points to a segment cluster center corresponding to a segment vector of the sample. During query of similar samples, searches are performed at two levels on the query samples. The first-level search is to determine a coarse cluster center that is closer to the query sample from the first vector table obtained through classification, and obtain comparison samples that belong to the coarse cluster center.

When the new ink stroke is not within the certain distance, the method includes assigning a new presence identifier the new ink stroke in the shared inking canvas, determining a location in the shared inking canvas for displaying a presence indicator, and displaying the presence indicator at the location; else, the method includes changing an existing location for a corresponding presence indicator according to a distance of the new ink stroke from the existing location.

  • Patent number: 10802613
    Abstract: A computing device includes a digital ink system that provides digital ink support to applications on the computing device. Digital ink inputs are received by the digital ink system, which provides ink stroke data for the digital ink inputs to the application for storage in a manner and format the application desires. The digital ink system also generates a digital ink container associated with the digital ink input, and communicates the digital ink container to a digital ink repository. The digital ink repository stores digital ink containers for multiple applications, and can be searched from a computing device to identify digital ink input to an application regardless of which application the digital ink was input to.

  • Patent number: 10769502
    Abstract: Computer-implemented techniques for sematic image retrieval are disclosed. Digital images are classified into N number of categories based on their visual content. The classification provides a set of N-dimensional image vectors for the digital images. Each image vector contains up to N number of probability values for up to N number of corresponding categories. An N-dimensional image match vector is generated that projects an input keyword query into the vector space of the set of image vectors by computing the vector similarities between a word vector for the input query and a word vector for each of the N number of categories. Vector similarities between the image match vectors and the set of image vectors can be computed to determine images semantically relevant to the input query.

  • Patent number: 10747949
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software are disclosed herein for presenting an overlay canvas in response to receiving an editing gesture to existing text on a canvas. In an implementation, user input is received comprising an inking gesture associated with existing text displayed on a canvas in a user interface. The inking gesture is then determined to comprise any of a plurality of editing gestures. In response to the inking gesture comprising an editing gesture, an overlay canvas is presented above the canvas in the user interface. Additional user input is received comprising inking on the overlay canvas. The inking is then incorporated into the existing text on the canvas.
