Andrea Califano: Method for finding a reference token sequence in an original token string within a database of token strings using appended non-contiguous substrings. International Business Machines Corporation, Louis J Percello, November 19, 1996: US05577249 (129 worldwide citation)

This method non sequentially compares a reference sequence of tokens to an original sequence of tokens to determine subsequences of tokens which exactly or similarly match. The method has a novel approach for creating a large number of indexes by partitioning strings of tokens into substrings, appen ...

Andrea Califano, Rakesh Mohan: Generalized shape autocorrelation for shape acquisition and recognition. International Business Machines Corporation, Sterne Kessler Goldstein & Fox, September 27, 1994: US05351310 (112 worldwide citation)

The invention provides automatic acquisition and recognition of complex visual shapes within images. During an acquisition phase, models are derived from interest points acquired from a target shape. The models are stored in and can be retrieved from a lookup table via high dimension indices. When a ...

Andrea Califano: Generalized neighborhoods parameter transform for image features extraction. International Business Machines Corporation, Philip J Feig, December 17, 1991: US05073962 (9 worldwide citation)

Geometric features in image data are extracted by correlation of local information contained in multiple neighborhoods or windows comprising the image. Features of interest are extracted from data contained in the neighborhoods. Nodes are created for each feature. Support values are assigned to each ...
