  • Patent number: 10831363
    Abstract: A method of manipulation of content provided by a hosting server using swipe gesture recognition on a user device having a touch input display. The method includes storing the content, combined with a swipe gesture recognition module to form a content package, on the hosting server. The swipe gesture recognition module is associated with at least one displayable content element of the content. The method further includes receiving, at the hosting server, a request for the content package from the user device and transmitting the content package from the hosting server to the user device for display by an application running on the user device. A defined action is applied to the at least one displayable content element if it is determined that a swipe gesture has occurred on the at least one displayable content element.

  • Patent number: 10795567
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for use in conjunction with a computing device with a touch-screen display allows users to organize and sort multimedia notecards and notebooks in an intuitive manner. Graphical control elements for associated multimedia programs are depicted on the display using text and images indicative of their content. These text and images are compressed to preserve their visibility when the user accesses program-specific settings and interactions. Notecards can be displayed and organized differently based on e.g. display orientation, and different types of display inputs can sort and combine the notecards using intuitive visual responses to the inputs.

  • Patent number: 10778454
    Abstract: Methods, systems, computer readable media, and apparatuses for enabling chat sessions are presented. In response to detecting that a first user is viewing a first program, a chat invitation may be automatically transmitted to a second user. The chat invitation may identify the first user and the first program, and further may invite the second user to initiate a chat session with the first user. An updated chat invitation may be automatically transmitted in response to detecting that the first user has changed to viewing a second program, and a chat session that has been initiated may subsequently be transferred to another device. Content prioritization settings may be accounted for in transmitting one or more chat invitations, and before a chat invitation is transmitted, it may be determined that a sufficient amount of time has elapsed to suggest that the user will continue viewing the first program.

  • Patent number: 10775190
    Abstract: An interactive viewing system of the present invention provides a user with a viewing duality in which a user is shown a floor plan, schematic layout, or other diagram on one side of a display and a visual representation, such as a digital image, corresponding to a selected portion of the schematic layout or diagram, on the other side of the same display. The user is presented with a current position marker and a directional indicator as they navigate through the schematic layout. At designated positions within the schematic layout, a corresponding image is concurrently displayed. In this manner, the user maintains a sense of where they are within the entire structure, while at the same time seeing images of the corresponding area.

  • Patent number: 10740293
    Abstract: A manifest generation system generates a system model for a cloud computing architecture. The system generates the system model in the form of system, data, and metrics manifests that act as an information concentrator for configuring various aspects of data ingestion and data management. The manifest generation system leverages both information extracted from industrial devices, applications, and programs that make up physical industrial automation systems, as well as user selections identifying which data tags are to be collected, specifying data collection preferences, etc. In this way, manifest data for configuring cloud-level data monitoring and collection is mapped to the automation and control system configurations via information extracted from the system-level topology. This approach can automate and simplify aspects of the cloud-based data collection configuration process.

  • Patent number: 10733325
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein discuss securing user-entered data in-transit between a first device and a second device. A user may enter text in a document. A first device may analyze the document to identify the user-entered text. The user-entered text may be separated from the document and transformed into an image using a machine learning algorithm. Transforming the text into an image may secure the data in-transit from the first device to a second device. The second device may receive the image and the document from the first device. The second device may reconstruct the user-entered text from the received image and re-assemble the document from the received document and the reconstructed user-entered text.

  • Patent number: 10712826
    Abstract: An electronic device: while displaying a user interface, detects an input sequence that includes detecting an increase in a characteristic intensity of a contact on a button. In response, the device determines whether the increase is above a first intensity threshold and whether a change in the characteristic intensity proximate to a time when the characteristic intensity increases above the first intensity threshold has a first or a second value for an intensity-change metric. If the increase is above the threshold and the change has the first value, the device performs a first operation that changes the user interface displayed on the display; and generates a first discrete tactile output that corresponds to the increase. If the increase is above the threshold and the change has the second value, the device performs the first operation and generates a second discrete tactile output that corresponds to the increase.

  • Patent number: 10713429
    Abstract: Provided are methods and systems for joining semi-structured data from the web with relational data in a spreadsheet table using input-output examples. A first sub-task performed by the system learns a string transformation program to transform input rows of a table to URL strings that correspond to the webpages where the relevant data is present. A second sub-task learns a program in a rich web data extraction language to extract desired data from the webpage given the example extractions. Hierarchical search and input-driven ranking are used to efficiently learn the programs using few input-output examples. The learnt programs are then run on the remaining spreadsheet entries to join desired data from the corresponding web pages.
