Title:
CANDIDATE LEVEL MULTI-MODAL INTEGRATION SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2002042242
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A multi-modal integration system includes sensing devices and a multi-modal integration unit. The sensing devices provide lists of candidate pairs, each pair including a candidate characterization and a probability expressing a confidence with respect to that candidate. The multi-modal integration unit receives the lists from the sensing devices, and provides multi-modal contextual information to each sensing device responsive to the lists. The sensing devices then provide new lists of candidate pairs iteratively, using the new information from the multi-modal integration unit to alter sensing or other performance. A super-system including a hierarchy of these multi-modal integration units may be constructed.
