  • Publication number: 20190158994
    Abstract: Systems and methods for proactively identifying and surfacing relevant content are disclosed herein. An example method includes: detecting, via the touch-sensitive display, a search activation gesture from a user of the electronic device. The method also includes: in response to detecting only the search activation gesture, displaying a search interface on substantially all of the touch-sensitive display, the search interface including: (i) a search entry portion; and (ii) a predictions portion with one or more user interface objects each associated with a respective locally-installed application. Each respective locally-installed application is selected from among a plurality of locally-installed applications for inclusion in the predictions portion based on an application usage history associated with the user of the electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20190141494
    Abstract: Systems and methods for proactively identifying and surfacing relevant content on an electronic device with a touch-sensitive display are disclosed herein. In one aspect, a method includes executing, on the device, an application in response to an instruction from a user of the electronic device. While executing the application, the method further includes collecting usage data. The usage data at least includes one or more actions performed by the user within the application. The method also includes: automatically, without human intervention, obtaining at least one trigger condition based on the collected usage data and associating the at least one trigger condition with a particular action of the one or more actions performed by the user within the application. Upon determining that the at least one trigger condition has been satisfied, the method includes providing an indication to the user that the particular action associated with the trigger condition is available.

  • Patent number: 9830189
    Abstract: A multi-threaded processor may support efficient pattern matching techniques. An input data buffer may be provided, which may be shared between a fast path and a slow path. The processor may retire the data units in the input data buffer that is not required and thus avoids copying the data unit used by the slow path. The data management and the execution efficiency may be enhanced as multiple threads may be created to verify potential pattern matches in the input data stream. Also, the threads, which may stall may exit the execution units allowing other threads to run. Further, the problem of state explosion may be avoided by allowing the creation of parallel threads, using the fork instruction, in the slow path.

  • Patent number: 6144992
    Abstract: A method and system for imaging data between two or more digital computers across a computer network is described, where the digital computers transfer data in a peer-to-peer mode and/or a client/server mode upon command of the operator. This invention address the problem of managing, updating and installing executable software, such as operating systems, utilities and application software packages on a large number of networked computer systems. By using this invention properly, a system operator can transfer data stored on a single computer system to all or some of the computer system connected to the first system over a computer network and can do so without expensive electronic server equipment. Moreover, this invention provides the capability of transferring data as files, sectors or cylinders of disk media, thereby permitting a single operator to, through a generally automated procedure, simultaneously install new system software, configuration files and executive files on many computers.

  • Patent number: 5764593
    Abstract: A method, implemented as a computer program in a digital computer system, for interrupting, modifying and/or controlling the boot process of a computer, automatically (without manual intervention) across a computer network. When a network manager needs to install software, test, maintain or gather information concerning one or more of the computer systems on the network, this invention permits the network manager to take control of the networked computer during its boot process, and in so doing to reconfigure both the networked computer's hardware and software, and to do so remotely. When fully implemented an entire network may be automatically controlled and tested remotely, all networked computers simultaneously or in sequence. An important improvement over methods of modifying the boot process which require manual intervention on individual computers or which require the use of expensive special purpose hardware devices which must be installed within each networked computer.
