A method and a system are provided. The system comprises a processor-implemented video frame selector module configured to determine a video frame to process that is received from a mobile device, the processor-implemented video frame selector module comprising a video frame analyzer module configured to determine a difference between a first video frame and a second video frame, and a video frame tag module configured to tag the first or second video frame as the determined video frame for item identification when the difference exceeds a predetermined amount. The system further comprises a processor-implemented item identification module configured to identify an item in the determined video frame and to tag the determined video frame with an identification of the item. The system also comprises a processor-implemented market module configured to generate offers of the identified item from at least one merchant to the mobile device.


The present disclosure involves a system that includes a computer memory storage component configured to store computer programming instructions and a computer processor component operatively coupled to the computer memory storage component. The computer processor component is configured to run a secure operating system and a non-secure operating system in parallel. The secure and non-secure operating systems are isolated from each other. The computer processor component is configured to execute code to perform the following operations: receiving an authentication request from an application that is run by the non-secure operating system, wherein the authentication request contains credentials of the application; communicating with a secure applet that is run by the secure operating system, and wherein the communicating includes transferring the credentials of the application to the secure applet; and authenticating and vetting the application based on the credentials of the application.


In various example embodiments, a system and method to provide services associated with an image is disclosed. The method includes receiving image data of an item of interest from a client device. The image data is used to identify a similar item from an image catalog based on the image data of the item. Attribute information associated with the similar item is retrieved and used to pre-populate a template. The pre-populated template is sent to the client device, and modified data from the client device is received in response, with the modified data resulting in a final template. A listing based on the final template is generated.

A system and method for a handshake authenticated coded locked container are provided. In example embodiments, a digitally encoded lock mechanism that is used by a sender to lock a container before shipping is determined. An access key is received from the recipient that receives the container. An authentication process is performed that determines whether the access key triggers the unlocking of the container. Based on a determination that the access key triggers the unlocking of the container, instructions are provided to unlock the container.


Systems and methods for weak authentication data reinforcement are described. In some embodiments, authentication data is received in a request to authenticate a user. In response to detecting weak authentication data, the systems and methods determine whether the identifier of the device was previously associated with a human user and whether the authentication data is weak. An example embodiment may include initiating a verification process in response to determining that the authentication data is weak and that the identifier of the device was not previously associated with a human user.


A system and method for multi-signal fault analysis is described. The system receives user test request information from a first mobile device. The user test request information includes a request for fault analysis of a vehicle and a set of symptoms associated with a fault of a vehicle. The system identifies a test design information associated with the fault based on the user test request information. The test design information includes instructions for the first mobile device and a second mobile device. The test design information establishes conditions for performing a collection of a plurality of signal message information. The system communicates the test design information to the first mobile device.

Example methods and systems are directed to adapting legacy endpoints to modem application protocol interfaces (APIs). A legacy endpoint may provide a powerful and complex API. A modern application may desire access to the legacy endpoint. One or more layers may be added between the modem application and the legacy endpoint. Each layer may provide a different API. These layers of APIs may transform the interface from a powerful and complex interface to a more limited but simpler and easier to use interface. In some example embodiments, a proxy layer, an adapter layer, a facade layer, and a service layer may be used.

Publication system, such as ecommerce system, machine translation translates a query in a first language to a second language to query an ecommerce database maintained in the second language and obtain a result set responsive to the query. Human feedback relating to the result set is detected. If the feedback is positive the system increases the probability that the translation is correct. If the feedback is negative the system decreases the probability that the translation is correct. For positive feedback, the system detects whether a clue is recognized in the query. If a clue is recognized the system increases the value of the clue for making the translation. The system detects the identity of the product in the query, accesses the product vendor website that is maintained in the query language, and detects information that is in the query language for use in the translation process.

Methods and system for item matching are described. In one embodiment, compatibility-based text for an item may be accessed. A compatibility identifier may be identified based on the compatibility-based text. The compatibility identifier may be associated with an item duster. The compatibility identifier may be used to identify a plurality of matching items. A result may be provided based on identification of the plurality of matching items. Additional methods and systems are disclosed.

Systems and methods are presented for recording and viewing images of objects with specular highlights. In some embodiments, a computer-implemented method may include accessing a first plurality of images, each of the images in the first plurality of images including an object recorded from a first position, and a reflection of light on the object from a light source located at a different location than in each of the other images in the first plurality of images. The method may also include generating a first composite image of the object, the first composite image comprising a superposition of the first plurality of images, and wherein each of the images in the first plurality of images is configured to change in a degree of transparency within the first composite image and in accordance with a first input based on a degree of tilt.
