  • Patent number: 11915478
    Abstract: A location of an object of interest (205) is determined using both observations and non-observations. Numerous images (341-345) are stored in a database in association with image capture information, including an image capture location (221-225). Image recognition is used to determine which of the images include the object of interest (205) and which of the images do not include the object of interest. For each of multiple candidate locations (455) within an area of the captured images, a likelihood value of the object of interest existing at the candidate location is calculated using the image capture information for images determined to include the object of interest and using the image capture information for images determined not to include the object of interest. The location of the object is determined using the likelihood values for the multiple candidate locations.

  • Patent number: 11886493
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for indexing 3D digital models, retrieving them, comparing them and displaying the results in a 3D space. The method comprises four complementary parts, i.e. displaying, comparing/searching, reconciling the faces, and classifying the results. These parts can overlap with each other or can be implemented separately. A method is described for retrieving 3D models that share certain similarities of form with a reference 3D model, involving a first step of analysis in order to generate representations (descriptors). The process of searching/comparing 3D models based on descriptors partially related to the faces optionally requires a process of pairing and reconciling the faces. The results are displayed in a single 3-dimensional space and, owing to a mark on the faces of the 3D models, makes it possible to distinguish several types of difference between similar 3D models.

Chunk locations, datatypes, and semantic roles can often be automatically determined from what is here called “context”, to wit, the combination of their formatting, structure, and content; those of adjacent or nearby content; overall patterns of occurrence in a document, and similarities of all these things across documents (mainly but not exclusively among documents in the same document set).

  • Patent number: 11821989
    Abstract: Hyperspectral, fluorescence, and laser mapping imaging with reduced fixed pattern noise is disclosed. A method includes actuating an emitter to emit a plurality of pulses of electromagnetic radiation and sensing reflected electromagnetic radiation resulting from the plurality of pulses of electromagnetic radiation with a pixel array of an image sensor. The method includes reducing fixed pattern noise in an exposure frame by subtracting a reference frame from the exposure frame. The method is such that at least a portion of the pulses of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the emitter comprises one or more of: electromagnetic radiation having a wavelength from about 513 nm to about 545 nm, from about 565 nm to about 585 nm, from about 900 nm to about 1000 nm, an excitation wavelength of electromagnetic radiation that causes a reagent to fluoresce, or a laser mapping pattern.

  • Patent number: 11816668
    Abstract: Arrangements for facial recognition and processing are provided. In some aspects, a request to process a transaction may be received. In response to the request, image data of the user may be captured. The image data may be analyzed using one or more facial recognition techniques. If the user cannot be identified, payment information may be requested from the user. If the user can be identified, the user may be identified and user profile data associated with the user may be retrieved. In some examples, the user profile data may include user contact information, user device identifying information, and the like. User device data may be extracted from the user profile data and a notification including an instruction to initiate payment processing may be generated. The notification may then be transmitted to the user device identified from the extracted data and the instruction may be executed to initiate payment processing.
