Patent Summary

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

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 156: Neural networks
Subclass 225: Cluster analysis
Subclass 293: Changing the image coordinates

Class 709: Electrical Computers And Digital Processing Systems: Multicomputer Data Transferring

This class provides for an electrical computer or digital data processing system or corresponding data processing method including apparatus or steps for transferring data or instruction information between a plurality of computers wherein the computers employ the data or instructions before or after transferring and the employing affects said transfer of data or instruction information. The class includes - process or apparatus for transferring data among a plurality of spatially distributed (i.e., situated, at plural locations) computers or digital data processing systems via one or more communications media (e.g., computer networks).

Subclass 203: Compression/decompression
Subclass 204: Format conversion
Subclass 205: Normalization
Subclass 231: Microprocessor

Class 718: Electrical Computers And Digital Processing Systems: Virtual Machine Task Or Process Management Or Task Management/Control

This class provides for an electrical computer or digital data processing system or corresponding data processing method including apparatus or steps for administrating over processor or job execution in a digital data processing system whether in a virtual machine or otherwise. Subject matter includes - virtual machine task or process management, and task management or control in general.

Subclass 100: TASK MANAGEMENT OR CONTROL
Subclass 105: Load balancing

Class 375: Pulse Or Digital Communications

This is the generic class for pulse or digital communication systems using electrical or electromagnetic signals. Such communication includes transmitting an intelligence bearing signal from one point to another in the form of discrete variations in some parameter of the electrical or electromagnetic signal.

Subclass 240.08: Feature based
Subclass 240.26: Associated signal processing

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 440: Graph generating
