  • Patent number: 10754534
    Abstract: Images are displayed in an album mode in which an image occupying a focus position is separated by bars from adjacent images in the album. The bars serve as a visual separator between the images and signify to a user that the images can be vertically scrolled. If the focus image occupies less than the full height of the screen, then part of the adjacent images are shown above and below the focus image. If the focus image occupies the full height of the screen, then the image is reduced in size to occupy less than the full height, causing the adjacent images to also be displayed. If the user scrolls the image, the image reduction decreases linearly with the scrolling until the image is shown at full height. Continued scrolling causes the image to move off the screen and the previous or next image to be displayed.

  • Patent number: 10713830
    Abstract: An image and the maximum number of tokens for a to-be-created image caption are received in a computing system. Font size of graphical image of the token is calculated from the maximum number of tokens and the dimension of desired input image for prediction-style image classification technique. Desired input image is divided into first and second portions. A 2-D symbol is formed by placing a resized image derived from the received image with substantially similar contents in the first portion and by initializing the second portion with blank images. Next token of the image caption is predicted by classifying the 2-D symbol using the prediction-style image classification technique. 2-D symbol is modified by appending the graphical image of just-predicted token to the existing image caption in the second portion, if termination condition for image caption creation is false. Next token is repeatedly predicted until termination condition becomes true.

  • Patent number: 10650188
    Abstract: A computer-implemented technique is described for generating a textual narrative based on a set of input images. In one scenario, the end user captures the set of input images while visiting one or more locations. The generated narrative describes the user's travel experience at those locations in a cohesive manner. In one implementation, the technique generates the narrative based on information extracted in offline fashion by a knowledge acquisition component. The knowledge acquisition component, in turn, produces the knowledgebase by mining one or more knowledge sources (such as one or more travel blogs) that provide image-annotated textual travel narratives. The technique can therefore be said to reuse common elements in the travel narratives of others in describing the user's own set of input images.
