  • Publication number: 20220269748
    Abstract: A variation testing system environment for performing variation testing of web pages and applications is disclosed. The variation testing system applies a weighted consistent hash function to user attributes of users to assign the users to a variant of a web page that is undergoing experimentation. The usage of the weighted consistent hash function allows for a stable experimental population.

  • Publication number: 20210221002
    Abstract: A vacuum-based end effector for selectively engaging parcels includes a base plate to which a plurality of vacuum cups are mounted and configured to be placed in fluid communication with a vacuum source. Each vacuum cup includes a bellows having a distal end connected to a lip. The vacuum-based end effector further includes a linear actuator that is mounted to the base plate and includes an extendible arm to which at least one vacuum cup is operably connected. The linear actuator can be selectively actuated to extend the extendible arm and move the lip of the vacuum cup operably connected to the extendible arm below a common plane defined by the lips of vacuum cups which maintain a fixed position relative to the base plate to individually address a target parcel. The vacuum-based end effector can be combined with a robot to provide an improved system for selectively engaging parcels.

  • Patent number: 9992429
    Abstract: Techniques for maintaining display of a portion of a video as the video continues to be displayed in a background are described herein. In some instances, a video may be captured at a first location and transmitted to a second location, where the video is output in real-time. As the video is displayed, a user may select a portion of the video to be paused. Based on the selection, the portion of the video may be paused while the rest of the video continues in a background. The background video may be displayed according to a different level of focus, image resolution, transparency, etc. than the portion of the video.

  • Patent number: 9762851
    Abstract: Techniques for augmenting video content to enhance context of the video content are described herein. In some instances, a video may be captured at a first location and transmitted to a second location, where the video is output in real-time. A context surrounding a user that is capturing the video and/or a user that is viewing the video may be used to augment the video with additional content. For example, the techniques may process speech or other input associated with either user, a gaze associated with either user, a previous conversation for either user, an area of interest identified by either user, a level of understanding of either user, an environmental condition, and so on. Based on the processing, the techniques may determine augmentation content. The augmentation content may be displayed with the video in an overlaid manner to enhance the experience of the user viewing the video.

  • Patent number: 9171553
    Abstract: A clear picture of who is speaking in a setting where there are multiple input sources (e.g., a conference room with multiple microphones) can be obtained by comparing input channels against each other. The data from each channel can not only be compared, but can also be organized into portions which logically correspond to statements by a user. These statements, along with information regarding who is speaking, can be presented in a user friendly format via an interactive timeline which can be updated in real time as new audio input data is received.

  • Patent number: 7703363
    Abstract: An apparatus for generating and manipulating a high-pressure fluid jet includes an assembly coupled to a motion assembly that imparts motion to the assembly along one or more axes. The motion assembly includes two motors coupled together to form a gimbal wrist, each motor having an axis of rotation. The two axes of rotation of the two motors can be perpendicular to each other, but are not necessarily aligned with the manipulator's axes of motion. The high-pressure fluid assembly incorporates a swivel that can rotate about two axes which may be parallel to the two motors' axes of rotation, allowing the high-pressure tubing contained therein to follow the motion imparted by the gimbal wrist of the motion assembly.
