  • Patent number: 10657410
    Abstract: Organ tissue properties of a patient are automatically compared with organ tissue properties of a healthy subject group. A population norm for the organ tissue properties is determined by: selecting at least two different tissue properties of the organ; determining for each tissue property previously selected and for each subject of said group a quantitative tissue property map; for each subject of the group, calculating a joint histogram from all the quantitative tissue property maps obtained for said subject; and determining an averaged joint histogram from all subjects of the healthy group, thus defining the population norm. A comparison is automatically performed of the averaged joint histogram with a patient joint histogram obtained for the organ tissue properties of the patient, by calculating a statistical deviation of values of a patient joint histogram relative to values of the averaged joint histogram, and mapping the statistical deviation to the patient organ.

  • Patent number: 10643095
    Abstract: First coordinate transformation information between an entire image and a first captured image is calculated by a feature point comparing process. Second coordinate transformation information between the first captured image and a second captured image is calculated by a feature point tracing process, the second captured image being a captured image at a timing when the first coordinate transformation information is calculated. Third coordinate transformation information between an immediately previous captured image and a third captured image is calculated by a feature point tracing process. A data input area in the entire image is mapped on the third captured image based on the first to the third coordinate transformation information pieces. Updates of the first and the second coordinate transformation information pieces may be suppressed where a change amount exceeds a predetermined threshold.

    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for dynamic memory allocation in a machine learning anomaly detection system. According to one embodiment of the disclosure, one or more variable-sized chunks of memory is allocated from a device memory for a memory pool. An application allocates at least one of the chunks of memory from the memory pool for processing a plurality of input data streams in real-time. A request to allocate memory from the memory pool for input data is received. Upon determining that one of the chunks is available in the memory pool to store the input data, the chunk is allocated from the memory pool in response to the request.

  • Patent number: 10616471
    Abstract: Techniques are described for automated analysis and filtering of image data. Image data is analyzed to identify regions of interest (ROIs) within the image content. The image data also may have depth estimates applied to content therein. One or more of the ROIs may be designated to possess a base depth, representing a depth of image content against which depths of other content may be compared. Moreover, the depth of the image content within a spatial area of an ROI may be set to be a consistent value, regardless of depth estimates that may have been assigned from other sources. Thereafter, other elements of image content may be assigned content adjustment values in gradients based on their relative depth in image content as compared to the base depth and, optionally, based on their spatial distance from the designated ROI. Image content may be adjusted based on the content adjustment values.
