For our January 2019 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of face recognition. In one embodiment no. 10,162,999, a method includes accessing an image file associated with a first user of a communication system and detecting a face in an image corresponding to the image file. 

In patent no. 9,477,869 a mutual-capacitance palm print identification method is provided, a mutual-capacitance palm print identification device and a mutual-capacitance palm print identification touch panel. 

In patent no. 10,055,660 a system, a non-transitory computer readable medium, and a method for Arabic handwriting recognition are provided. The method includes acquiring an input image representative of a handwritten Arabic text from a user, partitioning the input image into a plurality of regions, determining a bag of features representation...

For our September 2018 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), both from algorithm and hardware development sides.

For our August 2018 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of Lidar based scene analysis. Patent no. 10,031,231 presents an object-detection system suitable for an automated vehicle which includes a lidar and a controller. The lidar is used to detect a point-cloud that is organized into a plurality of scan-lines. 

Patent no. 9,934,430 presents methods, systems, and computer-readable media related to a technique for providing handwriting input functionality on a user device. A handwriting recognition module is trained to have a repertoire comprising multiple non-overlapping scripts and capable of recognizing tens of thousands of characters using a single handwriting recognition model.

Patent no. 9,959,455 presents a system for facial recognition comprising at least one processor; at least one input operatively connected to the at least one processor; a database configured to store three-dimensional facial image data comprising facial feature coordinates in a predetermined common plane;

In patent no 9,852,740 a high quality speech is reproduced with a small data amount in speech coding and decoding for performing compression coding and decoding of a speech signal to a digital signal.

For our March 2018 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of image segmentation
In patent no 9,886,647 systems, devices, and methods are presented for segmenting an image of a video stream with a client device by accessing a set of images within a video stream, identifying an object of interest within one or more images of the set of images, and detecting a region of interest within the one or more images. 

For our February 2018 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of image and video compression.
In patent no. 9,866,835 devices and methods for obtaining borehole images at a surface installation while a borehole-imaging downhole tool is logging a borehole are provided. One such method may involve, while the downhole tool is disposed in the borehole, obtaining a first borehole image at a first depth of investigation using the borehole-imaging downhole tool.
