  • Patent number: 11068531
    Abstract: A method, an apparatus, and a computer program product conduct online visual searches through an augmented reality (AR) device having an optical see-through head mounted display (HMD). An apparatus identifies a portion of an object in a field of view of the HMD based on user interaction with the HMD. The portion includes searchable content, such as a barcode. The user interaction may be an eye gaze or a gesture. A user interaction point in relation to the HMD screen is tracked to locate a region of the object that includes the portion and the portion is detected within the region. The apparatus captures an image of the portion. The identified portion of the object does not encompass the entirety of the object. Accordingly, the size of the image is less than the size of the object in the field of view. The apparatus transmits the image to a visual search engine.

  • Patent number: 10970768
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer program products for identifying a candidate product in an electronic marketplace based on a visual comparison between candidate product image visual text content and input query image visual text content. Unlike conventional optical character recognition (OCR) based systems, embodiments automatically localize and isolate portions of a candidate product image and an input query image that each contain visual text content, and calculate a visual similarity measure between the respective portions. A trained neural network may be re-trained to more effectively find visual text content by using the localized and isolated visual text content portions as additional ground truths. The visual similarity measure serves as a visual search result score for the candidate product. Any number of images of any number of candidate products may be compared to an input query image to enable text-in-image based product searching without resorting to conventional OCR techniques.

  • Patent number: 10956784
    Abstract: An image creation and editing tool can use the data produced from training a neural network to add stylized representations of an object to an image. An object classification will correspond to an object representation, and pixel values for the object representation can be added to, or blended with, the pixel values of an image in order to add a visualization of a type of object to the image. Such an approach can be used to add stylized representations of objects to existing images or create new images based on those representations. The visualizations can be used to create patterns and textures as well, as may be used to paint or fill various regions of an image. Such patterns can enable regions to be filled where image data has been deleted, such as to remove an undesired object, in a way that appears natural for the contents of the image.

  • Patent number: 10942974
    Abstract: A system, method and the like for synchronous document captures into an asynchronous archive and document-level reconciliation of the archive process. Once a document requiring archiving has been captured and validated, the client is immediately notified that the document has been accepted into the archiving system and that archiving will ensue. Once the batch mode archiving process has been completed, the client is notified, at the document/individual request-level of the completion of the archive process. Additionally, the archiving system is transparent to the clients in terms of system changes, capable of mitigating system errors and/or notifying clients of system errors, adaptable to allow for any format of web service call requesting document archiving, allows for different types of documents having different index/metadata to be processed without a database schema change and allows users to configure archive process attributes on a per document, or per document-type basis.

  • Patent number: 10942967
    Abstract: A system uses a trained classifier to identify or predict the item attributes of an item depicted in an image, and compares these attributes to those specified in a corresponding item description. The system may, for example, be used to verify the accuracy of listings submitted by users to an electronic catalog. For example, if an item description submitted by a user does not specify all of the item attributes identified from the item image(s) submitted by the user, the system may generate a suggested edit to the item description.

  • Patent number: 10936906
    Abstract: A training data acquisition method and device, a server and a storage medium are provided. The training data acquisition method is applied to a classifier and includes the following steps: obtaining an image search target according to an input of a user; providing images to the user according to the image search target, to display the images; and selecting at least one image from the displayed images, and determining a target-classification pair as training data according to the at least one image; where the target-classification pair includes the image search target and an entity-based classification of the at least one image. Thus, more high-quality training data can be obtained, improving the performance of a classifier.
