Google is not the company that filed the application. If you examine the Legal Events, the application for this patent was originally filed by a Canadian startup company affiliated with the University of Toronto: ASSIGNMENT OF ASSIGNORS INTEREST ASSIGNOR:THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO Effective date: 20130311 Owner name: DNNRESEARCH INC.,...

The standard answer is to engage an attorney to do a freedom to operate search and give you a written opinion. This presupposes that you know what you are building and how it works in some detail. The search would look for patents that are in force that have claims that look like they might cover what you are building. Since you are in the early stages of ...

These guys proposed droupout in 1992. The differences are that Clay and Séquin dropped only units not inputs, and that they did not normalize the learned weights after completing training. "Fault Tolerance Training Improves Generalization and Robustness" Reed D. Clay and Carlo H. Séquin [Proceedings 1992] IJCNN International Joint Conference on Neural ...

I would suggest that any good book on Model Theory, such as those by Kreisel, Krivine, and W. Hodges, from the 1970s through 1990s, would show that the size of the proof space is in general inversely related to the size of the model space. This does not directly address neural nets. However the positing of alternatives and then pruning them is an old and ...

NO Google Patents and other sites that allow for searching patents show publications. Once published, a particular publication is a static thing - like a book. Following the normal course, patent applications are published twice, once at the 18 month point and then, if granted, in the final allowed state. That is what you see on patent search sites. However, ...

The @the Europeist comment is correct - Google is showing references from patent publications. Technically they are not really citations until they appear printed in a patent. It looks like Google is going into PAIR or the Global Dossier to the file wrapper and getting information from the IDS forms filed in the applications.

I would recommend The Lens. It allows download of either 1000 or 10,000 patents via their "Collections" feature. A found a blog post that goes through it step-by-step. They have two alternate formats to .csv.

While a freedom to operate opinion from an attorney is best, you can do some of the work yourself. You made a good start identifying the specific Google patents. You need to read the claims to see what is protected by each of them. In order to infringe upon a patent, you need to implement each and every step in at least one claim. Long and complicated claims ...

In most countries, it is mandatory that patent applications are filed by patent attorney or agent registered in that country on behalf of inventor. For those countries means of payment of fees from 'your account' is purely academic. What @ DonQuiKong has said about payment procedure is right. However, few countries like the US, India allow filing by ...

The mere fact that nVidia provides CUDA for developing GPU-based programs does not absolve others (like yourself) of any potential patent infringement. If you make, sell, use, import, etc., something that includes all the elements of one of the claims of an issued patent, you are infringing that patent. Many tech companies do build large patent portfolios ...

If the application is granted, then it may be enforced against any software developed since the priority date (December 24, 2012). If the methods you are implementing were publicly disclosed by anyone not listed as an inventor on the application before that priority date, then you have freedom to operate. If the method you are implementing is more recent ...

This one with a priority date in 2008 seems to fit the bill, at least on the parallel nature of it: A method for decoding a video bitstream is disclosed. The method comprises: entropy decoding a first portion(112-1) of a video bitstream(52), wherein first portion(112-1) of video bitstream is associated with a video frame(110), thereby producing a first ...

I think it might depend on how public that posting was. Both of those social networks have privacy settings which limit the exposure to your posts. Was it posted to a single individual? Probably not considered disclosure. Public to the world, probably considered disclosure. However, any such could establish a date for invention.

Apple’s AirTunes protocol (now know as AirPlay) was introduced in 2004. It lets users stream audio (and later video) from one device to another. An example is streaming songs from an iTunes library on a computer to an AirPort Express router. In the process, the audio is converted from an iTunes-supported format (mp3, aac, wav, etc) to Apple Lossless.
