  • Patent number: 10929814
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software are disclosed herein for enhancing the awareness of the activity of others in a collaboration group. In an implementation, a contact that identifies a person is displayed in a user interface to an application. A determination is made whether the person is in a collaboration group with a user of the application. If so, a further determination is made whether that person is presently active in a content item in a context other than the present context of the user. When such conditions are satisfied, an indication is surfaced in the user interface that the person is active in the content item.

  • Publication number: 20200356623
    Abstract: Technology is disclosed herein for visualizing changes in documents. In an implementation, one or more computers, employing a change visualization process, maintain a record of changes made to a document over a period of time. The one or more computers identify a document scope within which to focus a visualization of one or more changes made to the document, wherein the document scope comprises a timeframe of interest. The one or more computers also identify, from the record of the changes, one or more changes made to the document within the document scope and surface a visualization of the one or more changes.

  • Patent number: 10680926
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer program embodiments are disclosed for adaptively displaying application performance data. In an embodiment, a plurality of performance monitoring data sources may be identified based on an application model that defines the topological structure of a software application. A request may be received for performance data associated with the application. One or more content options may then be determined based on the received request, and each content option may include one or more target performance metrics. Each content option may also be associated with one or more data sources. For each content option, the associated data sources may be queried to identify available data sources containing relevant performance data. A content option may be selected from the determined content options based on a priority associated with the content option. The performance data corresponding to the selected content option may subsequently be retrieved and presented for display.

  • Publication number: 20200162561
    Abstract: A document modification event management system for notification of specific edits made to electronic content items, and a method of determining the relevance of the modification. As an example, a first user may make an edit to a portion of a document. A second user may receive a notification of this edit if the system determines the edit was relevant to the second user. In addition, during review of an electronic content item, a reader may select a specific portion of content and view the modifications that have occurred to only the selected portion. These tools can provide collaborative document users the ability to more readily monitor document development and stay up-to-date with changes that are important to them.

  • Patent number: 10346093
    Abstract: Disclosed circuitry includes RAM circuits, a memory controller, and an array of processing circuits. Each RAM circuit includes a read port and a write port. The memory controller accesses tensor data arranged in banks of tensor buffers in the RAM circuits. The memory controller is coupled to each read port by shared read control signal lines and to each write port by shared write control signal lines. The memory controller generates read control and write control signals for accessing different ones of the tensor buffers at different times. The array of processing circuits is coupled to one of the RAM circuits. The array includes multiple rows and multiple of columns of processing circuits for performing tensor operations on the tensor data. The processing circuits in each row in each array of processing circuits are coupled to input the same tensor data.

  • Patent number: 10228880
    Abstract: The examples described herein discuss various systems, software, devices, and methods for managing a primary command queue by ordering and/or reordering and distributing incoming commands based, at least in part, on positional information of one or more components of data storage devices. More specifically, in some embodiments, the examples discussed herein describe ordering and distributing incoming commands from a primary command queue in a position-aware manner that takes into account disk rotation (e.g., rotational position) and/or actuator head location for the various data storage devices of a data storage system enclosure. Among other benefits, ordering incoming commands at the primary command queue and distributing the ordered commands to individual device queues improves overall command execution latency.
