  • Patent number: 9870345
    Abstract: A technique for ordering textual messages in a graphical user interface (GUI) of a communication application based on text content can include receiving a textual message, and determining an insertion point in the GUI based on the text content of the received textual message. In some implementations, determining the insertion point can include utilizing a language model to determine a probability that the text content of the textual message is associated with each preceding textual message. Additionally or alternatively, determining an insertion point can include utilizing a timestamp corresponding to a time that the received textual message was initiated by a sender user. The technique can further include displaying the textual message at the determined insertion point of the GUI. In some implementations, the displaying of the textual message can include providing an active indication of the received textual message being inserted at the determined insertion point.

  • Patent number: 9824081
    Abstract: The present disclosure includes techniques pertaining to computer implemented systems and methods for automatic generation of data transformations. In one embodiment, a user manipulates a spreadsheet of data in a user interface. On a backend, the user's manipulations trigger actions that cause the data to be modified. Actions may automatically cause data flow objects and data flow graphs to be produced. The transformations defined by the data flow graphs are automatically executed by a software engine and the results are displayed to the user. The user may access and manipulate data from a variety of data sources while the underlying complexities of the transformation process are performed in an automated manner.
