  • Patent number: 11144556
    Abstract: Instead of processing a query as-is, the query is chunked or broken down into a sequence of smaller chunked queries and the chunked results of those smaller queries are streamed back to the requester. Chunking the query and streaming the chunked results can substantially decrease the user's time to value when running a query by returning some immediate results for display which are refined and eventually converge on the full results as each chunked query runs.

  • Patent number: 10846074
    Abstract: Systems and methods to automatically upgrade, or update a synchronization client to a cloud-based platform are provided. The automatic upgrading can be provided to a personal or an enterprise-level synchronization client. The synchronization client is implemented in a manner that is silent, secure and fault tolerant. In one embodiment, the disclosed technology includes an executable process to download the update, verify the contents, and apply the update. The contents can be verified by checking the certificate on any binary. The systems and methods further include identification and handling of items to be ignored by the synchronization client for synchronization with a cloud-based platform. In some embodiments, files and folders which typically should not be synchronized are identified and removed from the synchronization process in an effective manner.

  • Patent number: 10725968
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure include systems and methods to facilitate top down delete or un-synchronization on delete of a synchronization client to a cloud-based platform. The disclosed technology innovates the mechanism the synchronization client processes local deletes so that instead of synchronizing the delete of each individual item across to the cloud-based platform, it can accumulate the individual item deletes into a top-level folder delete and that top-level folder delete can be what is communicated across to the cloud-based platform. Embodiments of the present disclosure also include systems and methods for depicting item synchronization between a local and cloud based platform/service (e.g. the Box service). In some embodiments the system can identify items that cannot be synchronized between the local and cloud based platform/service (e.g., cloud based collaboration or storage platform/service).

  • Publication number: 20120303438
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for implementing coupons in conjunction with payment transactions involving electronic payment instruments. The benefit of the coupons can be provided to a customer after confirmation that the customer has satisfied all conditions of the coupon, which can include conditions on the type of good(s) and/or service(s) purchased as well as non-payment activities by the customer. If a coupon includes a non-payment activity condition, the non-payment activity can be performed either before or after the payment transaction(s) corresponding to the coupon.

  • Publication number: 20120081225
    Abstract: A system, method and apparatus for validation of medication for consumption by a patient. A patient unit, which is one node on a communication network, is operated to present medication elements stored at the patient unit in an order corresponding to the order of a prescribed course of treatment for the patient. Indicia on the medication elements are inspected to derive characterizing data such as nature of drug and scheduled time of consumption. The derived data is compared to stored data corresponding to a next scheduled medication element. If there is a match, the patient is informed that validated medication is ready to be consumed. The patient then arranges for the medication to be delivered from the patient unit and for a notification to be sent to a compliance agent at a remote network node.

  • Patent number: 7502516
    Abstract: An improved system and method for an extensible codec architecture for digital images is provided. Executable software code may be operably coupled to a codec manager for requesting imaging operations to be performed on a digital image. The codec manager may receive the request to perform an imaging operation on the digital image and may select an imaging component, such as a codec, from one or more imaging components registered in the computer system for performing an imaging operation on the digital image. An arbitration manager may include functionality for requesting enumeration of the operations an imaging component may perform on a particular digital image. One or more pixel format converters may then convert the pixel format in the digital image to a pixel format supported by an imaging component installed on the system.

  • Patent number: 7466315
    Abstract: A method and system implemented in an application programming interface (API) and an object model allows program code developers to interface in a consistent manner with a scene graph data structure to output graphics. Via the interfaces, program code writes drawing primitives such as geometry data, image data, animation data and other data to visuals that represent a drawing surface, including validation visual objects, drawing visual objects and surface visual objects. The code can also specify transform, clipping and opacity properties on visuals, and add child visuals to other visuals to build up a hierarchical scene graph. A visual manager traverses the scene graph to provide rich graphics data to lower-level graphics components.

  • Publication number: 20070050321
    Abstract: Described is the adding of padding to a content file (e.g., image and/or audiovisual file) for anticipated subsequent use such that the content file need not be re-encoded to add metadata and other data to it. For example, padding may be added to an image file directly after an image file directory, whereby the directory can grow as needed into the padded space. Metadata can likewise be added to the padding, e.g., from the opposite direction that the directory extends into the padding. The padding may be added on the first re-encoding of the file, reducing or eliminating the need for subsequent re-encoding. The padding also may be used to track dead space in the file, with adjacent regions of dead space coalesced into a single region of dead space.

  • Publication number: 20060242141
    Abstract: A method and architecture for reading and updating metadata. A policy component is arranged to receive a request to read or update metadata that may include metadata from a plurality of standards. Each metadata format potentially includes a field corresponding to the request. The policy component determines which fields to read or update in satisfying the request by consulting a repository. The repository includes mappings that map information included in the request (e.g., a path) to locations in the metadata corresponding to the request. The policy component uses the locations to read or update the metadata.

  • Publication number: 20060184576
    Abstract: An improved system and method for an extensible metadata architecture for digital images is provided. Executable software code may be operably coupled to a metadata query reader and a metadata query writer for requesting operations for manipulating metadata in an image file. The metadata query reader may be operably coupled to a decoder having a block reader for identifying metadata blocks in an image file and associating a metadata reader with each metadata block. Each metadata reader may then enumerate the metadata in the metadata block associated with that metadata reader. The metadata query writer may be operably coupled to an encoder having a block writer for associating a metadata writer with each metadata block to be written to an image file. Each metadata writer may then write metadata in the metadata block associated with that metadata writer.

  • Publication number: 20050140694
    Abstract: A media integration layer including an application programming interface (API) and an object model allows program code developers to interface in a consistent manner with a scene graph data structure in order to output graphics. Via the interfaces, program code adds child visuals to other visuals to build up a hierarchical scene graph, writes Instruction Lists such as geometry data, image data, animation data and other data for output, and may specify transform, clipping and opacity properties on visuals. The media integration layer and API enable programmers to accomplish composition effects within their applications in a straightforward manner, while leveraging the graphics processing unit in a manner that does not adversely impact normal application performance. A multiple-level system includes the ability to combine different media types (such as 2D, 3D, Video, Audio, text and imaging) and animate them smoothly and seamlessly.
