|20150256899||Generating Enhanced Advertisements Based on User Activity - The disclosure includes a system and method selecting advertisements for users based on image capturing patterns across different media. A media application receives a captured image including information about a product from a user, identifying an indexed image matching the captured image including information about the product, retrieving metadata describing the captured image including information about the product responsive to identifying the indexed image, retrieving a user profile stored for the user, identifying an advertisement from a set of advertisements based on the user profile and the metadata describing the captured image including information about the product and providing the user with the advertisement based on the user profile.||09-10-2015|
|20150256744||Enhancing Spatial Resolution of Images from Light Field Imaging Systems Using Sub-Pixel Disparity - A light field imaging system captures different images provide views that are shifted by sub-pixel amounts relative to one another. These views can be combined to produce a higher resolution digital image of the object.||09-10-2015|
|20150256638||Fairly Adding Documents to a Collaborative Session - A system and method for sharing documents and markup to documents in near real-time. A server coupled with a plurality of client devices via a network is configured to fairly distribute documents to each of the plurality of client devices in one or more collaborative sessions. The server receives a document for distribution to a plurality of client devices associated with a particular collaborative session, breaks the documents into pieces, and repeatedly, until all pieces of the document are distributed: selects a piece of the document for transmission, sends the selected piece to each of the plurality of client devices, computes a delay based on the size of the selected piece and a minimum network bandwidth, and waits for the computed delay.||09-10-2015|
|20150256633||Generating a Platform for Social Interaction - The disclosure includes a system and method for identifying discussion groups related to a video that a user would find to be interesting. A recognition application receives a captured image from a user, identifies an indexed image that matches the captured image, identifies a timestamp for the indexed image, determines a segment in the video that encompasses the timestamp, determines whether the user is interested in the segment of the video based on the timestamp and a user profile and provides suggested discussion groups to the user that are ranked based on what the user is interested in.||09-10-2015|
|20150254723||Grouping Users Based on User Profiles - The disclosure includes a system and method for grouping users into one or more categories for delivering targeted advertisements. A media application receives a captured image from a user, identifies an indexed image matching the captured image, retrieves metadata describing the captured image responsive to identifying the indexed image, generates a user profile for the user based on the metadata describing the captured image and a history of at least one previously captured image associated with the user, identifies a product in the captured image based on the metadata describing the captured image, provides the user with information about the product, updates the user profile based on how the user interacts with the product, and categorizes the user into one or more groups based on the user profile.||09-10-2015|
|20150254711||Grouping Channels Based on User Activity - The disclosure includes a system and method for recommending an advertising campaign based on which channels are popular. A recognition application receives captured images from user devices, the captured images including information about products, identify indexed images that match the captured images, identify metadata about the captured images including information associated with products in the captured images, determine popularity of each channel based on a number of interactions that users have had with channels during a time period based on the metadata, receive an advertisement and provide on the one or more channels the advertisement based on the popularity of each channel.||09-10-2015|
|20150254401||FILM TO DICOM CONVERSION - Embodiments digitize radiology films into DICOM format. Radiology films typically include an array of captured images laid out in a grid pattern. To comply with DICOM format, the scanned image of a radiology film is segmented into sub-images and text is extracted from the sub-images to generate DICOM metadata. The sub-images and extracted text metadata are then combined to generate a DICOM-compliant multi-image file.||09-10-2015|
|20150248591||Method for Product Recognition from Multiple Images - A method for product recognition from multiple images includes producing a plurality of recognition results for a plurality of input images, stitching the plurality of input images into a single stitched image; merging the plurality of recognition results using information from stitching the plurality of input images to generate a merged recognition result; and outputting the merged recognition result. The disclosure also includes systems for implementing the method.||09-03-2015|
