  • Patent number: 10726081
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, at a processor of a computing device, a first search query during editing of a design, the first search query including at least a first search term. The method also includes identifying at least one style attribute associated with the design and searching at least one database based on the first search term, the at least one style attribute, or a combination thereof, to generate search results. The method further includes outputting the search results. A first search result of the search results is ranked higher than a second search result of the search results based on a determination that the first search result more closely matches the at least one style attribute associated with the design than the second search result.

  • Patent number: 10698912
    Abstract: The invention relates to a computer-implemented method for processing a query in a database, the query comprising a search value. The database comprises a plurality of datasets the datasets comprising entries, wherein distance statistics are assigned to the datasets. The distance statistics describe the minimum and maximum distance between the values of the entries of a dataset of the plurality of datasets and a reference value. The method comprises determining the distance between the search value and the reference value, said determination resulting in a search distance, determining a subset of datasets from the plurality of datasets for which the search distance is within the limits given by the minimum and maximum distances described by the respective distance statistics, and searching for the search value in the subset of datasets.

  • Patent number: 10698892
    Abstract: A process is provided for independently hashing and filtering a data set, such as during preprocessing. For the data set, one or more records, separately having one or more fields, may be identified. A record hash value set, containing one or more record hash values for the respective one or more records, may be generated. Generating a given record hash value may be accomplished as follows. For a given record, a hash value set may be generated, having one or more field hash values for the respective one or more fields of the given record. The record hash value for the given record may be generated based on the hash value set. A total hash value for the data set may be generated based on the record hash value set. The records of the data set may be filtered based on classification of the query that generated the records.

  • Patent number: 10671629
    Abstract: A computer-executed method includes storing in a data store data attributes, data objects, a data analysis tool (DAT), and render functions. Each data object has an attribute set and an identifier set. The method includes identifying each data object that has an attribute set comprising a data attribute matching each reference data attribute associated with the DAT, and selecting an identified data object as an input data object for the DAT. The DAT generates a new data object as a function of the input data object, which includes analyzing the input data object with reference to an auxiliary data object and creating an identifier set for the new data object that includes an identifier of the new data object for distinguishing the new data object from each other data object in the data store, and the identifier of the auxiliary data object. The new data object is stored in the data store. Each render function is associated with a set of reference data attributes.

  • Patent number: 10664532
    Abstract: A social networking system maintains content items associated with various topics. Each topic may be associated with a start time and/or an end time defining a time range during which content items associated with the topic are most likely to be relevant to social networking system users. The start time and/or end time associated with a topic may be based on information received from a user of the social networking system or on the occurrence of an event. The social networking system computes a score indicating a predicted affinity of a viewing user of the social networking system for each content item eligible for presentation to the viewing user and adjusts the affinity score based on a start time and/or an end time of an associated topic. One or more content items are selected for presentation to the viewing user based on the affinity score associated with each content item.

  • Patent number: 10657102
    Abstract: One embodiment provides a method for re-balancing data and metadata across multiple sub-file systems of a file system. The method includes determining sub-file systems including an amount of data that exceeds a threshold. At least one cell in the sub-file systems is identified as a candidate for re-balancing. A re-balance process is performed on the at least one cell that includes performing a flush operation to flush dirty data from file system buffers, copying an inode table for an independent set of files in the at least one cell to a destination sub-file system, notifying an allocation manager for the destination sub-file system of a new storage pool to manage, and performing an un-quiesce operation on I/O operations to each element in the at least one cell.

  • Patent number: 10635657
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for a data transfer and resource management system. An embodiment operates by retrieving both data and a schema from a table. A first offset corresponding to the retrieved data indicating a retrieval time of the retrieved data and a number of records is identified. It is determined that the retrieved data corresponds to the schema. The data is stored on a messaging platform and made available to one or more end users prior to a transfer to one or more cloud servers. A second offset corresponding to a number of records of the data retrieved by the one or more end users from the messaging platform is determined. It is validate that the second offset corresponds to the first offset. The records and the schema retrieved from the intermediary messaging platform are transferred to the one or more cloud servers.

  • Patent number: 10628494
    Abstract: Methods, computer systems, and computer-readable storage media for maximizing information associated with content items on a search engine results page are provided. A total number of pixels available on the search engine results page is determined, and content items are received in response to a search query. Templates are selected from a set of pre-generated templates, and the content items are initially assigned to the templates such that a number of content items is maximized on the search engine results page. Next, and starting with the highest-ranked content item, an optimal size is determined for each of the templates such that the content-item-per-pixel is maximized within each template. After resizing the templates to the optimal size, the content items are presented on the search engine results page.

  • Patent number: 10621680
    Abstract: A method and system for processing digital content objects, such as news stories, are provided. A user specifies digital content objects of interest. The user specification is then applied to a source of digital content objects in order to obtain a batch of digital content objects matching the specification. A value of a variable, such as a social media impact metric, is then determined for each of the digital content objects of the batch and these values are fitted to a distribution function in order to determine parameter values for the distribution function. A threshold value for alerting is then determined based on the parameterized distribution function. The specification can then continue to be applied to the source of digital content objects and when new digital content objects are found that match the specification, their values are compared against the threshold value for alerting and the user is alerted only in respect of new digital content objects that have values which exceed the threshold value.
