  • Publication number: 20190034433
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for using cinematic techniques to present data. Embodiments of the invention can be used to infer and generate cinematic techniques or combinations thereof based on a model and user action. Cinematic techniques can be used to meet the data exploration and analysis requirements of a user. As such, embodiments of the invention permit users (including non-programmers) to employ cinematic techniques (possibly in combination with other techniques) to gain insights into their data and also convey appropriate emotional messages.

  • Patent number: 9953069
    Abstract: A business intelligence (BI) document preserves references to identities and formats of remote data sources and allows a local computing device to offload analytical operations to remote data sources. The BI document specifies a graph of entities connected by directed edges from the output of one entity to an input of another entity. An entity, for example, can represent without limitation a data structure, an external data source, a control element, an external event source, a visualization, or an update service. The entities of a BI document at a local computing device can reference data at an original data source—rather than extracting data from the original data source to a preferred local datastore. An entity of the BI document can direct a remote data source to execute transformations on the remote data before returning a solution to the local computing device.

  • Patent number: 9864966
    Abstract: A business intelligence document provides functionality for testing a hypothesis on aggregated data in a business intelligence document (e.g., a spreadsheet-like document), wherein one or more of the input data values and transformation properties are designated as constrained (e.g., invariant or constrained within a range, set, enumeration, or domain). The hypothesis, which is articulated as a data mining assertion, is input through the user interface of the business intelligence document (e.g., via an expression interface or properties of a row, column, or cell) and solved over the aggregated data. The solution is then presented through the user interface of the spreadsheet-like document, such as in a table, graph, histogram, etc.

  • Patent number: 9773070
    Abstract: A compound application that is operated across multiple devices using constituent transformation chains associated with multiple devices. Dependencies are identified between different transformation chain classes. Devices are also identified along with their associated instance of a transformation chain class. Upon determining that the transformation chain instances associated with different devices are to be joined, data is permitted to flow between the various devices in accordance with the identified dependences between their respective classes of the associated transformation chain instances, and in accordance with dependency state between the instances. Thus, a compound transformation chain is formed. As devices exit the environment, the associated transformation chain instances may be removed from the compound transformation chain. Thus, rather than devices having interoperating applications, the devices become mutually engaged with the same compound application.

  • Patent number: 9659394
    Abstract: Synthesizing of information and application user interface elements into a continuous stream form. This is done by adjusting a level of cinematicity to be applied to a session of information as the session is presented. Higher level cinematicity use higher degrees of movement in presenting user interface elements representing the information. In contrast, lower levels of cinematicity use lower or no movement of user interface elements representing the information.

  • Patent number: 9396698
    Abstract: Presentation of transformation chain output on devices. The transformation chain includes one or more presentation nodes that drive rendering of output, such that a change in a value in the presentation node causes rendering to occur. In response to a change in value of the presentation node, the presentation system identifies characteristics or various devices that may be used to render the corresponding output. The presentation system identifies an appropriate device based on the identified characteristics of that device. The presentation system then facilitates rendering of at least a version of the output on the selected device, perhaps even transforming the output in a manner suitable for the selected device. In some embodiments, the transformation chain may be a compound transformation chain constructed by joining multiple constituent transformation chains.

  • Patent number: 9390527
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for using cinematic technique taxonomies to present data. Embodiments of the invention can be used to infer and identify cinematic techniques or combinations thereof based on a model and user action. Cinematic techniques can be used to meet the data exploration and analysis requirements of a user. As such, embodiments of the invention permit users (including non-programmers) to employ cinematic techniques from a cinematic technique hierarchy (possibly in combination with other techniques) to gain insights into their data and also convey appropriate emotional messages.

  • Patent number: 9356913
    Abstract: The authorizing of transformation chain instances of different transformation chain classes to join so as to act as a compound transformation chain instance. Class-level authorized dependencies are identified between transformation chain classes. Then, instance-level authorization is performed in accordance with one or more joining criteria, presuming that the instances are of appropriate classes that may be joined. The joining allows the instances to act as a single compound transformation chain whereby data is permitted to flow across the boundaries of the constituent transformation chain instances. New transformation chain instances may be joined to the compound transformation chain instances, and transformation chain instances may be removed from the compound transformation chain instance, thereby dynamically changing the compound application.

  • Publication number: 20140310619
    Abstract: A recalculation user interface that includes visualization controls that display in response to received data, and signal capture controls that capture corresponding environment signals upon detection of a corresponding event. A declarative transformation chain is positioned between the various controls. Examples of environmental signals captured by the signal capture controls include image, video, audio, orientation, biometrics, location, weather, or any other information about the environment. Incorporating such signal capture controls into the recalculation user interface thus allows captured environmental signals to be incorporated into the logic and other data of the transformation chain. Also, an authoring tool that permits authoring of such recalculation user interfaces is described.
