Microsoft is Bringing Its Patents To Open Invention Network (OIN)

Microsoft is a global software giant renowned for its operating system packages. For several years, it has been dominating the sector, but there are also other competitive players. For a long period, it seems Microsoft was against the idea of open source network to maintain its dominance in the market.

However, Microsoft seems to be shifting its position by joining the Open Invention Network (OIN). OIN is an open-source patent consisting of several companies that share similar business interests. Microsoft now has a complete patent portfolio for all the members of the open-source patent group by joining the OIN.

The OIN consisted of more than 2,650 members, and it also owned more than 1,300 global patents and applications before Microsoft joined. OIN is currently the most significant non-aggression patent community, and it represents an open-source set of intellectual property values.

The members of the OIN include IBM, Google, Red Hat, and SUSE. The member cross licenses and OIN patent license are available royalty-free to any person who joins the community.…

Artificial Intelligence Is Helping Computers Understand Our Movements

Artificial intelligence (AI) can significantly help computers to understand human behavior as well as various object movements. Computers can learn how the objects change in different scenarios in just a few video frames. Continuous advancement in this machine learning technology can also assist computers to understand our movements as well as their surroundings.

Video frames help in designing a machine learning system that can recognize different activities. Human beings, for example, can understand what is happening by looking at some frames of the video. They can narrate the action on the screen, and they can also predict the activity likely to occur in the next scene.

However, computers still struggle with this concept of understanding what will happen next in a video. A new model that uses machine learning aims to improve the computer’s efficiency in recognizing different activities in a frame. The new robot system can also determine and try to understand the events taking place around it.…
