Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 706: Data Processing:Artificial Intelligence

This is a generic class for artificial intelligence type computers and digital data processing systems and corresponding data processing methods and products for emulation of intelligence (i.e., knowledge based systems, reasoning systems, and knowledge acquisition systems); and including systems for reasoning with uncertainty (e.g., fuzzy logic systems), adaptive systems, machine learning systems, and artificial neural networks.

Subclass 12: MACHINE LEARNING
Subclass 46: Knowledge representation and reasoning technique
Subclass 58: Temporal logic

Class 345: Computer Graphics Processing And Selective Visual Display Systems

Processes and apparatus for selective electrical control of two or more light-generating or light-controlling display elements* in accordance with a received or stored image data signal. The image data includes character, graphical information or display attribute data. The image data may include, for example, information data from a peripheral input device, from the reception of a television signal, from the recognition of image data, or from the generation or creation of image data by a computer.

Subclass 474: Motion planning or control
Subclass 501: COMPUTER GRAPHIC PROCESSING SYSTEM
Subclass 506: Pipeline processors
Subclass 584: Bump map
Subclass 586: Mathematically defined

Class 382: Image Analysis

This is the generic class for apparatus and corresponding methods for the automated analysis of an image or recognition of a pattern. Included herein are systems that transform an image for the purpose of (a) enhancing its visual quality prior to recognition, (b) locating and registering the image relative to a sensor or stored prototype, or reducing the amount of image data by discarding irrelevant data, and (c) measuring significant characteristics of the image.

Subclass 232: IMAGE COMPRESSION OR CODING
