  • Patent number: 11803873
    Abstract: Embodiments of system are disclosed in which selection strategies for a direct marketing campaign that identify consumers from a credit bureau or other consumer database can be planned, tested, and/or refined on a stable subset of the credit database. In some embodiments, once refined, consumer selection criteria may be used to execute the direct marketing campaign on the full consumer/credit database, which is preferably updated approximately twice weekly. In one preferred embodiment, the data for the test database represents a random sampling of approximately 10% of the full database and the sampling is regenerated approximately weekly in order to provide a stable set of data on which campaign developers may test their campaign. For each consumer in the sampling, the environment may allow a client to access and use both attributes calculated by the credit bureau and proprietary attributes and data owned by the client.

  • Patent number: 11651412
    Abstract: In selected embodiments a recommendation generator builds a network of interrelationships between venues, reviewers and users based on their attributes and reviewer and user reviews of the venues. Each interrelationship or link may be positive or negative and may accumulate with other links (or anti-links) to provide nodal links the strength of which are based on commonality of attributes among the linked nodes and/or common preferences that one node, such as a reviewer, expresses for other nodes, such as venues. The links may be first order (based on a direct relationship between, for instance, a reviewer and a venue) or higher order (based on, for instance, the fact that two venue are both liked by a given reviewer). The recommendation engine in certain embodiments determines recommended venues based on user attributes and venue preferences by aggregating the link matrices and determining the venues which are most strongly coupled to the user.

  • Patent number: 11626139
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is a system and computer-implemented method for assembling and editing a video program from spoken words or soundbites. The disclosed technology imports source audio/video clips and any of multiple formats. Spoken audio is transcribed into searchable text. The text transcript is synchronized to the video track by timecode markers. Each spoken word corresponds to a timecode marker, which in turn corresponds to a video frame or frames. Using word processing operations and text editing functions, a user selects video segments by selecting corresponding transcribed text segments. By selecting text and arranging that text, a corresponding video program is assembled. The selected video segments are assembled on a timeline display in any chosen order by the user. The sequence of video segments may be reordered and edited, as desired, to produce a finished video program for export.

    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.

    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.

    Abstract: To dynamically re-color scalable graphic images in web applications, a server may send an image filename to a web application operating on a client device. Before displaying the image, the client device may send a request back to the server identifying the image and providing color codes for the image. The server may load an image file for the identified image and replace generic placeholders in the image file with the color codes sent from the client device. The re-colored image file may then be sent back to the client device for display. The server may receive subsequent requests to re-color the image using different color codes in response to user inputs at the client device, such as clicking or hovering over the image.

  • Patent number: 11386144
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media for generating tags for an object portrayed in a digital image based on predicted attributes of the object. For example, the disclosed systems can utilize interleaved neural network layers of alternating inception layers and dilated convolution layers to generate a localization feature vector. Based on the localization feature vector, the disclosed systems can generate attribute localization feature embeddings, for example, using some pooling layer such as a global average pooling layer. The disclosed systems can then apply the attribute localization feature embeddings to corresponding attribute group classifiers to generate tags based on predicted attributes. In particular, attribute group classifiers can predict attributes as associated with a query image (e.g., based on a scoring comparison with other potential attributes of an attribute group).

  • Patent number: 11372519
    Abstract: A method, system, apparatus, and article of manufacture provide the ability to perform multiple actions based on a reality captured image. An adjustable splitter splits a viewport into viewing panes with the ability to freely adjust the splitter angle. A sphere represents a view of a scene from a viewpoint and used to render an interactive preview of the view without moving to the viewpoint. A series of 2D images may be used to simulate the navigation of a 3D model in an expedited manner. A 3D mesh error scroll bar is used navigate unsorted errors resulting from mesh creation. An interactive gradient map can be used to select a points based on a range of values for non-geometric parameters. An irregularly shaped mesh selection boundary can be directly modified by stretching. An elevation slice of a 3D model can be defined and isolated for viewing/manipulation.
