  • Patent number: 11494978
    Abstract: A system for modeling a three-dimensional structure utilizing two-dimensional segments comprising a memory and a processor in communication with the memory. The processor extracts a plurality of two-dimensional segments corresponding to the three-dimensional structure from a plurality of images indicative of different views of the three-dimensional structure. The processor determines a plurality of three-dimensional candidate segments based on the extracted plurality of two-dimensional segments and adds the plurality of three-dimensional candidate segments to a three-dimensional segment cloud. The processor transforms the three-dimensional segment cloud into a wireframe indicative of the three-dimensional structure by performing a wireframe extraction process on the three-dimensional segment cloud.

  • Patent number: 11467777
    Abstract: A method and system for storing data in portable storage devices. Specifically, the disclosed method and system provide a solution for the write-hole problem inflicting persistent storage, especially redundant array of independent disks (RAID) configured storage. The write-hole problem may arise from the occurrence of power failure during a write operation of data to RAID configured storage, subsequently resulting in disparities between the data and parity information thereof—the consistency there-between of which is critical to data reconstruction upon disk failure. To rectify these inconsistencies, a full-stripe (or full-block set) write is recommended, which the disclosed method and system implements through the use of, and re-mapping of relationships between, virtual, physical, and in-memory block sets.

  • Patent number: 11461578
    Abstract: An illustrative image descriptor generation system generates a descriptor listing that includes a plurality of image descriptors corresponding to different feature points included within an image. Based on the descriptor listing, the system generates a geometric map representing the plurality of image descriptors in accordance with respective geometric positions of the corresponding feature points of the image descriptors within the image. Based on the geometric map, the system determines a proximity listing for a primary image descriptor within the plurality of image descriptors. The proximity listing indicates a subset of image descriptors that are geometrically proximate to the primary image descriptor within the image. Based on the proximity listing, the system selects a secondary image descriptor from the subset of image descriptors and combines the primary and secondary image descriptors to form a composite image descriptor. Corresponding methods and systems are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11347979
    Abstract: A method and a device for MCMC framework-based sub-hypergraph matching are provided. Matching of object features is performed by constructing sub-hypergraphs. In a large number of actual images and videos, objects vary constantly, and contain various noise points as well as other interference factors, which makes image object matching and searching very difficult. Perform object feature matching by representing the appearance and positions of objects by sub-hypergraphs allows for faster and more accurate image matching. Furthermore, a sub-hypergraph has several advantages over a graph or a hypergraph: on one hand, a sub-hypergraph has more geometric information (e.g. angle transformation, rotation, scale, etc.) than a graph, and has a lower degree of difficulty and better extensibility than a hypergraph. On the other hand, the disclosed method and device have stronger capabilities to resist interference and good robustness, and are adaptable to more complex settings, especially with outliers.

    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods of generating and utilizing visual representations for audio meetings. A method includes: receiving an audio recording of a meeting having multiple participants; determining, for each meeting participant, time-slots in which that meeting participant spoke during the meeting; generating and displaying an audio playback progress bar which visually differentiates among time-slots of different meeting participants. Hovering or selection of a particular time-point on the audio progress bar, causes generation and display of a textual phrase that was uttered at that time-point by a meeting participant, together with an indication of the speaker; and optionally with several other preceding phrases and following phrases. Transcript portions are also color-coded or visually-coded, to efficiently distinguish among phrases of various meeting participants.

  • Patent number: 11310331
    Abstract: The subject matter of this specification generally relates to pre-caching data for a predicted future action. In some implementations, a client device includes a data storage device having a cache that stores data received for one or more mobile applications and a data processing apparatus that communicates with the data storage device and a display. A user interface context can be determined for a given user interface being presented for a given application. A predicted next action that a user of the client device will perform at the given user interface can be determined based on the user interface context. Prior to detecting the predicted next action, a request for next action data that will be presented in response to the user performing the predicted next action can be transmitted over a network. The next action data can be received and stored in the cache.

  • Patent number: 11308427
    Abstract: A computer system receives data that includes indications of a plurality of agenda items that correspond to the group event. During the group event, the system captures, by a media recording device, media data, converts the captured media data to a searchable version of the media data and searches the searchable version of the media data to determine a first time frame of the media data that corresponds to a first agenda item of the plurality of agenda items. The system displays, in a user interface that is accessible to at least one user associated with the group event, the representation of the media data. A first portion of the representation of the media data that corresponds to the first time frame is visually distinguished from at least a portion of the representation of the media data that does not correspond to the first time frame.

  • Patent number: 11301950
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing a visible watermark in a remote session. The methods comprise: determining if a graphic update needs to be made at a client computing device during the remote session; generating a first graphic update message in response to a determination that a graphic update is needed; identifying pixels of the graphic which would be affected by at least one watermark if the graphic and watermark were both displayed on a screen of the client computing device; constructing a second string of commands specifying a new color value for each of the pixels that were previously identified; converting the first graphic update message to a second graphic update message by inserting the second string of commands in between a first string of commands and an End-Of-Frame (“EOF”) command; and communicating the second graphic update message from the sever to the client computing device.

  • Patent number: 11295569
    Abstract: A device may obtain a first image depicting contents included in a secure storage container at a first point in time and first user account data associated with the secure storage container. The device may store the first image in a data structure associated with the first user account data. In addition, the device may receive data indicating that an individual associated with a second user account accessed the secure storage container, and receive a second image depicting contents included in the secure storage container at a second point in time. The second image may be stored in the data structure. The device may further receive, from a user device associated with the first user account data, a request to access the data structure, and the device may provide, to the user device, data that causes display of the second image.
