Methods computers, systems, and software products that generate concept images of human poses using models of machine learning are described herein. Computer-implemented methods involve identifying specific the events using input data, and then applying a machinelearning recognition model to at most a part of that data.

Conventional interpretability methods are local and highlight specific parts of an image that contribute to the task of classification. These methods aren’t in a position to establish or learnrelationships between the objects of the image or establish a general concept of the image.

How to Search for Patents

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
