  • Patent number: 11460996
    Abstract: A process, and corresponding system for performing the process, is described for editing and representing property values for a digital map. The process retrieves electronic map data from a style sheet corresponding to a vector map tile set for a digital map and displays map layer styles in a property editor panel, where each map style layer references a portion of the data and one or more visual style rules to apply to the portion. The process also displays a visual map with the map layer styles applied. Upon receiving selection of one or more map style layers from the plurality of map style layers, the process displays style layer properties and values corresponding to each. The process renders in the visual map only the selected one or more style layers marked as visible. As edits are made in the property editor panel, the visual map is updated to reflect the changes.

  • Patent number: 11436404
    Abstract: A technique for automatically determining new font sizes includes receiving information indicating a layout change for a document. The document includes a text frame that includes text content in a first font size. The text content covers a particular percentage of the text frame, and the layout change causes a change in the size of the text frame to a resized text frame. The technique includes determining a second font size for the text content in the resized text frame. A percentage of the resized text frame covered by the text content in the second font size is substantially similar to the particular percentage of the document. The method includes resizing the size of the text content from the first font size to the second font size and outputting a document with the resized text frame with the text content in the second font size.

  • Patent number: 11379735
    Abstract: A semantic document generation system is described. The semantic document is composed of document details, people and meta-data. The semantic document is self-aware of the information it contains. The semantic document's structure and terms are governed by legal, logical and party related rules. A semantic contract can be created from a semantic document generation system. The semantic document generation system receives an indication of a type of a document to be generated and plurality of terms for the document from a plurality of sources. The terms are converted into triples. A plurality of rules governing the terms of the document is applied to the triples to generate a knowledge graph and determine whether terms from the different parties are compatible. The terms are determined to be compatible in a case where the plurality of rules governing terms of the document is satisfied.

  • Patent number: 11354378
    Abstract: A web experience augmentation system predicts, during a web browsing session of a user, augmentation data that the user is likely to want to view during the web browsing session. This prediction is based on both local content preferences for the user and global content preferences. The local content preferences for the user refer to an indication of the webpages accessed during the current web browsing session of the user. The global content preferences refer to analytics for webpages on a website obtained over an extended period of time that extends prior to the web browsing session of the user. The web experience augmentation system also modifies a webpage to which the user navigates to include the predicted augmentation data.

  • Patent number: 11354920
    Abstract: A method modifies and utilizes a text document based on an audio file that has captured audio proceedings relevant to the text document. One or more processors and/or a user segment the text document into topic-based text segments. Processor(s) receive an audio file that is relevant to the text document, convert the audio file into text, and match a specific topic-based text segment from the topic-based text segments to a specific topic-based audio segment from the topic-based audio segments. In response to identifying a difference between content in the specific topic-based text segment and content in the specific topic-based audio segment, processor(s) and/or the user update the specific topic-based text segment with the content in the specific topic-based audio segment to create an updated version of the text document.

  • Patent number: 11341338
    Abstract: To provide users with more flexibility for focusing and controlling visualizations of data, the inventors disclose new data structures and artificial intelligence logic that can be utilized in conjunction with notional specifications of focus criteria for visualizations. In an example embodiment, the inventors disclose technology that can be used to generate data structures that represent notional characteristics of the visualization data which in turn can be tied to specific elements of the visualization data to support interactive focusing of visualizations in notional terms that correspond to interesting aspects of the data. This allows a user to specify using notional criteria how a visualization should be focused on specific elements without needing to know in advance what those specific elements are.
