Application: Privacy-safe-cloud-based computer vision (Patent ID: US20240106629A1)

The patent by Koninklijke Philips NV describes methods and systems for protecting digital client data transmitted to a computing cloud by only sending scrambled data and never storing descrambled data in the cloud. The processing of client data with the cloud involves embedded descrambling, ensuring that descrambled data is never output or stored by the cloud. Various techniques for scrambling data are outlined, including using lookup tables or mathematical functions to map data units to unique locations. Additionally, the system allows for periodic changes in the scrambling technique and the transmission of a scrambling identifier to identify the technique used.

The method and system outlined in the patent involve capturing unscrambled data on a client computing system, scrambling it, and transmitting the scrambled data to a cloud computing system for processing. The cloud system processes the data without storing descrambled data and outputs the processed data back to the client system. The data protection system includes components such as a data scrambler, a processing module in the cloud, and a cloud storage unit. The system ensures privacy by transmitting only scrambled data and not outputting descrambled data. Techniques for scrambling data are detailed, along with provisions for changing scrambling techniques periodically and transmitting identifiers to identify the scrambling technique used. Overall, the patent focuses on maintaining the privacy and security of client data in cloud computing environments through innovative scrambling and processing methods.
