  • Patent number: 11385946
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to processing systems using improved techniques for mapping events from user device to a cloud storage system. A computing platform, such as a cloud event mapping platform, may receive, at a task manager hosted on the computing platform, events to be processed. The computing platform may use the task manager to determine file objects corresponding to each event. The computing platform may use the task manager to determine a subset of the events to be processed by each dispatcher. The computing platform may use a first dispatcher to generate an event dispatch queue using a plurality of heuristics. After determining expiration of a delay corresponding to each event in the dispatch queue, the computing platform may dispatch each event in the dispatch queue for execution.

  • Patent number: 11379333
    Abstract: Notifications can be managed across ecosystems. A centralized hub can implement a learning engine that uses an algorithm to evaluate incoming notifications that are intended for a user that uses multiple computing devices having different ecosystems. The algorithm can be configured to determine on which of the user's computing devices the notifications should be presented given a particular context. Agents executing on the user's computing devices can monitor how the user interacts with the notifications and provide indications of such interactions to the learning engine. The learning engine can then update its algorithm based on the user's interactions to cause future notifications to be delivered to the user via the ecosystem that is most appropriate for a given context in which each notification is received.

  • Patent number: 11379281
    Abstract: A server in a content delivery network (CDN) can examine API traffic and extract therefrom content that can be optimized before it is served to a client. The server can apply content location instructions to a given API message to find such content therein. Upon finding an instance of such content, the server can verify the identity of the content by applying a set of content verification instructions. If verification succeeds, the server can retrieve an optimized version of the identified content and swap it into the API message for the original version. If an optimized version is not available, the server can initiate an optimization process so that next time the optimized version will be available. In some embodiments, an analysis service can assist by observing traffic from an API endpoint over time, detecting the format of API messages and producing the content location and verification instructions.

  • Patent number: 11354464
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are described herein emulating, by one or more servers on behalf of a mobile computing device, a cloud-based virtual machine. The cloud-based virtual machine may include a virtualized hardware component that provides, as virtual hardware input for a software application executing on the cloud-based virtual machine, either “genuine” virtual hardware input or “simulated” virtual hardware input. Genuine virtual hardware input may be based on an actual hardware signal received from a hardware component of the mobile computing device that corresponds to the virtualized hardware component. Simulated virtual hardware input may be generated independently of any hardware signal associated with the hardware component. Output of the software application may be interactively streamed to the mobile computing device.

  • Patent number: 11327518
    Abstract: A system for controlling energy consumption. The system may incorporate devices configured on a floor map, a monitor that detects energy consumption by each device, a heat map shown on the floor map, a processor, and a user interface having a display connected to the processor. The heat map may indicate energy consumption in various areas of the floor plan. The floor map with the heat map may be a screen on the display. The energy consumption by each of the devices from the monitor may be calculated by the processor in time that each device is active and in a power rating of the respective device. The energy consumption by each of the devices may be converted by the processor into cost. From a screen, a user may define a virtual and dynamic zone to optimize and control the energy consumption.

  • Patent number: 11307800
    Abstract: A disk-based write filter can include a filter driver that is loaded below the file system driver to thereby provide write filter functionality at the disk level, and a supporting driver that is loaded above the file system driver. When an excluded file is opened, the supporting driver can obtain the file's disk sector information and provide it to the filter driver to cause the filter driver to pass through I/O requests that target sectors defined in the file's disk sector information. When the excluded file is closed, the supporting driver can again obtain the file's disk sector information and provide it to the filter driver to allow the filter driver to identify any additional sectors that may have been allocated to the file. The filter driver can copy any such sectors from an overlay to disk and commence passing through I/O requests that target these sectors.

  • Patent number: 11301224
    Abstract: A robotic process automation system employs centralized compilation to generate a platform independent executable version of a bot, which is encoded to perform user level operations. The system employs an extensible set of commands which can be user generated. The bots execute on devices that are separate and independent from a server processor that controls the system. The devices execute bots in an execution environment that is provided by the server processor. Change in a command in a bot requires recompilation of the bot which is then delivered upon request to a device. The execution environment does not require recompilation upon a change in a command.
