  • Patent number: 11501175
    Abstract: Example embodiments relate to generating sets of recommended inputs for changing predicted results of a predictive model. The examples disclosed herein access, from a database, a historical set of inputs and results of a predictive model. A function is approximated based on the historical set of inputs and results, and a gradient of the function is computed using a result of the function with respect to a local maximum value of the function. A set of recommended inputs is generated based on the gradient of the function, where a recommended input produces a positive result of the function.

  • Patent number: 11494533
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to testing software for operating an autonomous vehicle. In one instance, a simulation may be run using log data collected by a vehicle operating in an autonomous driving mode. The simulation may be run using the software to control a simulated vehicle and by modifying a characteristic of an agent identified in the log data. During the running of the simulation, that a first type of interaction between the first simulated vehicle and the modified agent will occur may be determined. In response to determining that the particular type of interaction will occur, the modified agent may be replaced by a interactive agent that simulates a road user corresponding to the modified agent that is capable of responding to actions performed by simulated vehicles. That the particular type of interaction between the simulated vehicle and the interactive agent has occurred in the simulation may be determined.

  • Patent number: 11461992
    Abstract: An object detection system may generate regions of interest (ROIs) from an input image that can be processed by a wide range of object detectors. According to the techniques described herein, an image is processed by a light-weight neural network (e.g., a heatmap network) that outputs object center and object scale heat-maps. The heatmaps are processed to define ROIs that are likely to include objects. Overlapping ROIs are then merged to reduce the aggregate size of the ROIs, and merged ROIs are downscaled to a reduced set of pre-defined resolutions. Fully-convolutional, high-accuracy object detectors may then operate on the downscaled ROIs to output accurate detections at a fraction of the computations by operating on a reduced image. For example, fully-convolutional, high-accuracy object detectors may operate on a subset of the entire image (e.g., cropped images based on ROIs) thus reducing computations otherwise performed over the entire image.

  • Patent number: 11449700
    Abstract: A system and method for error correction for machine-readable symbols having data codewords, and having error correction (EC) codewords derived from the data codewords and redundantly indicating the location and data contents of the data codewords. The symbols use Reed-Solomon (RS) error correction to retrieve damaged codewords. RS error correction normally requires two EC codewords to identify both the location and data contents of a data codeword. The present system and method perform optical contrast analysis on the codewords, identifying those codewords with the lowest contrast levels. Codewords with the lowest contrast levels are flagged as optically ambiguous, thereby marking, in the EC equations, the locations of the codewords most like to be in error. As a result, only a single EC codeword is required to retrieve the data for a flagged data codeword.

  • Patent number: 11432037
    Abstract: A computing system receives from a media presentation device a query fingerprint stream representing media content being presented by the media presentation device, where the query fingerprint stream has been determined to represent a first channel. The computing system then detects that a threshold mismatch exists between the received query fingerprint stream and a reference fingerprint stream representing the first channel, thus indicating a likelihood that the media presentation device has transitioned from presenting the first channel to presenting a second channel. Responsive to detecting the threshold mismatch, the system thus discontinues channel-specific action with respect to the first channel. For instance, the system could discontinue superimposing of first-channel-specific content on the presented media content and perhaps start superimposing of second-channel-specific content instead.

  • Patent number: 11386642
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards comparing two images for content differences, such as images based on the frames of a show and a derivative version of that show. Frame pairs such as from an original show and its derivative version are processed into image pairs, which can include decoding, scaling, luminance extraction and/or filtering. An edge pixel image is obtained via edge detection for each image. Edge pixels in one image are compared against a counterpart edge pixel (and possibly neighboring pixels) in the other image to determine matches (matching edge pixels) and mismatches. An image with too many errors based on the mismatches is deemed as a candidate for further review. A difference image can be generated to assist a reviewer in detecting where the mismatches were detected. By repeating for the various frames, a show can be automatically compared against its derivative for content differences.

  • Patent number: 11295452
    Abstract: Black borders are detected in an image frame using a grey scale image of the image frame, and an edge image of the image frame. Candidate black borders are identified using maximum grey scale values associated with rows and columns of pixels of the grey scale image of the image frame, and then validated using a sum of grey scale values associated with rows and columns of pixels in the edge image of the image frame. If the validation fails, it is presumed that no black border exists.

  • Patent number: 11216960
    Abstract: Disclosed are computer-implemented methods, non-transitory computer-readable media, and systems for image processing. One computer-implemented method includes determining a rotated angle of an identification (ID) document image, where the rotated angle corresponds to an angle between a bottom edge of the ID document image and an x-axis. The ID document image is rotated based on the rotated angle, where an angle is defined between the bottom edge of the rotated ID document image and the x-axis, and where a value of the angle is within a predefined range. Image regression is performed on the rotated ID document image to obtain coordinates of four corner points of the rotated ID document image. Image alignment is performed on the rotated ID document image based on the coordinates of four corner points of the rotated ID document image.
