  • Patent number: 10437451
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present application provide a method and system for private communication. During operation, the system may determine a privacy level from a plurality of privacy levels associated with a private chat function of a communication application. The private chat function may be configured to transmit and receive private chat messages, and each privacy level is associated with visual effects which are different from the visual effects of other privacy levels. The system may obtain mode configuration information corresponding to the selected privacy level. The system may then configure the private chat function for the communication application based on the obtained mode configuration information, and display the visual effects for the communication application according to the selected privacy level.

  • Patent number: 10430505
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to formulating and refining field extraction rules that are used at query time on raw data with a late-binding schema. The field extraction rules identify portions of the raw data, as well as their data types and hierarchical relationships. These extraction rules are executed against very large data sets not organized into relational structures that have not been processed by standard extraction or transformation methods. By using sample events, a focus on primary and secondary example events help formulate either a single extraction rule spanning multiple data formats, or multiple rules directed to distinct formats. Selection tools mark up the example events to indicate positive examples for the extraction rules, and to identify negative examples to avoid mistaken value selection. The extraction rules can be saved for query-time use, and can be incorporated into a data model for sets and subsets of event data.

  • Patent number: 10420983
    Abstract: Tracking and monitoring athletic activity offers individuals with additional motivation to continue such behavior. An individual may track his or her athletic activity by completing goals. These goals may be represented by real-world objects such as food items, landmarks, buildings, statues, other physical structures, toys and the like. Each object may correspond to an athletic activity goal and require an amount of athletic activity to complete the goal. For example, a donut goal object may correspond to an athletic activity goal of burning 350 calories. The user may progress from goal object to goal object. Goal objects may increase in difficulty (e.g., amount of athletic activity required) and might only be available for selection upon completing an immediately previous goal object, a number of goal objects, an amount of athletic activity and the like.

  • Patent number: 10334328
    Abstract: A video processing system generates and automatically updates videos. A client inputs a smart script that defines general preferences and information to include in a video. The video processing system generates a model of the story from the smart script. A story model comprises story beats that define order and characteristics of information that is presented in a story. The video processing system accesses client content (e.g., video clips, images, and testimonials from a client website) and assigns content items to story beats. The story model and associated content is rendered into a video. The video processing system can then adapt the story model in response to viewer feedback, external events, or other client-supplied parameters. Adapting the story model may include reordering, adding, or removing story beats, or altering parameter values associated with story beat characteristics. Thus, the video processing system can iteratively improve and update a video automatically.

  • Patent number: 10331293
    Abstract: According to an embodiment of the present invention, a system dynamically resizes one or more application windows displayed on one or more screens based on an interactive state associated with the one or more application windows. Initially, a processor displays a plurality of different windows associated with one or more corresponding applications and determines an interactive state associated with each of the plurality of different windows. The processor then analyzes the interactive states of each of the plurality of different windows and, in response, adjusts a size of one or more of the plurality of different windows in accordance with the determined interactive states. Embodiments of the present invention further include a method and computer program product for dynamically resizing one or more application windows based on the interactive states associated with the one or more application windows in substantially the same manner described above.

  • Patent number: 10324773
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to processing events generated by Internet of Things (IoT) devices. In particular, it relates to storing a machine-readable declarative specification of stateful event processing of an automated multi-step progression of monitoring of Internet of Things (IoT) devices that generate events. It includes compiling into tangible memory, in response to the declarative specification, a state processing network that implements a multi-step progression of monitoring events generated by the IoT devices. The state processing network implements both the time based transition triggers and the event based transition triggers after being initiated by the IoT devices. Further, data structures, which record monitoring status of particular IoT devices, are compiled. Finally, the state processing network further selects an alternative action to trigger, and triggers the selected action using at least some data from a particular event being processed.

  • Patent number: 10318320
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for virtual desktop access using device-native user interfaces are disclosed. A virtual desktop instance is implemented on behalf of a user. One or more applications are installed on the virtual desktop instance and executed using a virtualized computing resource instance. Data associated with the virtual desktop instance is sent to a first user device that implements a first device platform. A first graphical user interface (GUI) for the virtual desktop interface is generated using the data and displayed on a first display of the first device. The data is sent to a second user device that implements a second device platform differing from the first device platform. A second GUI for the virtual desktop interface is generated using the data and displayed on a second display of the second device. The second GUI differs at least in part from the first GUI.
