  • Patent number: 9990610
    Abstract: A method for annotating a message executes at a computing device having one or more processors and memory. The memory stores one or more programs configured for execution by the one or more processors. A plurality of messages for a user is analyzed to determine whether a task reminder is derivable for any of the messages. In this way, task reminders are derived for at least a subset of the messages. A user interface for an electronic messaging application is provided. The interface includes a list of objects, one or more of which represents a collapsed state of a message in the message subset and comprises a summary, task reminder, and a dismissal affordance. Responsive dismissal affordance selection, the task reminder and the dismissal affordances are removed from the object.

  • Patent number: 9773166
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for classifying documents. One of the methods includes obtaining a collection of training documents, the training documents including positive documents identified as being longform documents and negative documents identified as not being longform documents; extracting one or more features from the training documents, wherein the features represent lexical or textual content of the training documents; and generating a longform document classifier trained using feature instances extracted from the training documents, wherein the generated longform document classifier is trained such that input documents are classified as being longform documents or classified as not being longform documents.

  • Patent number: 9697475
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for using an additive context model for entity disambiguation. An example method may include receiving a span of text from a document and a phrase vector for the span. The phrase vector may have a quantity of features and represent a context for the span. The method also includes determining a quantity of candidate entities from a knowledge base that have been referred to by the span. For each of the quantity of candidate entities, the method may include determining a support score for the candidate entity for each feature in the phrase vector, combining the support scores additively, and computing a probability that the span resolves to the candidate entity given the context. The method may also include resolving the span to a candidate entity with a highest probability.

  • Patent number: 9626384
    Abstract: A computer-implemented technique can receive a plurality of photos and automatically select a subset of the plurality of photos having a high degree of representativeness by jointly maximizing both photo quality and photo diversity to obtain a photo album. The technique can determine one or more clusters for the photo album using a hierarchical clustering algorithm, and store the photo album according to the one or more clusters. The technique can control the manner in which the photo album is displayed using the one or more clusters. The technique can adjust at least one of the one or more clusters and the automatic photo album generation based on user input. The user input can include at least one of adding, deleting, and moving a photo with respect to the one or more clusters. The technique can then re-cluster, automatically generate a new photo album, and/or adjust the presentation.

  • Patent number: 9619457
    Abstract: A computer-implemented technique can include obtaining a training corpus including pairs of (i) documents and (ii) corresponding abstracts. The technique can include identifying a set of entity mentions in each abstract and each corresponding document based on their respective part-of-speech (POS) tags and dependency parses. The technique can include clustering the sets of entity mentions referring to a same underlying entity to obtain clusters for each document and each corresponding abstract. The technique can include aligning specific abstract entity mentions to corresponding document entity mentions to obtain a set of aligned abstract and document entities. The technique can include labeling the set of aligned entities as salient and unaligned entities as non-salient to generate a labeled corpus. The technique can also include training features of a classifier using the labeled corpus to obtain a trained classifier.

  • Patent number: 9514098
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus related to determining coreference resolution using distributed word representations. Distributed word representations, indicative of syntactic and semantic features, may be identified for one or more noun phrases. For each of the one or more noun phrases, a referring feature representation and an antecedent feature representation may be determined, where the referring feature representation includes the distributed word representation, and the antecedent feature representation includes the distributed word representation augmented by one or more antecedent features. In some implementations the referring feature representation may be augmented by one or more referring features. Coreference embeddings of the referring and antecedent feature representations of the one or more noun phrases may be learned. Distance measures between two noun phrases may be determined based on the coreference embeddings.

  • Patent number: 9436755
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus related to determining and scoring task indications. For example, methods and apparatus may determine a plurality of interrogative sentences in a plurality of messages, determine starting n-grams of the interrogative sentences, determine task indications based on the starting n-grams, and determine task association scores for the task indications. Each task indication may be determined based on a set of one or more starting n-grams that share similarities. One or more individuals and/or applications may assign one or more task association measures to a task indication based on likelihood that the task indication is associated with a task request. The task association score for the task indication may be determined based on the task association measures that are assigned to the task indication.
