  • Publication number: 20240119224
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for table cell splitting in an online document editor. A method includes: responsive to a request to split a cell in a table, determining a target number of rows and a target number of columns, automatically inserting rows adjacent to rows of the cell to reach the target number of rows, automatically inserting columns adjacent to columns of the cell to reach the target number of columns, and automatically merging groups of cells within an initial boundary of the cell, each group spanning a determined number of rows per group and a determined number of columns per group.

  • Patent number: 11949996
    Abstract: A device for estimating a scene illumination color for a source image is configured to: determine a set of candidate illuminants and for each of the candidate illuminants, determine a respective correction of the source image; for each of the candidate illuminants, apply the respective correction to the source image to form a corresponding set of corrected images; for each corrected image from the set of corrected images, implement a trained data-driven model to estimate a respective probability of achromaticity of the respective corrected image; and based on the estimated probabilities of achromaticity for the set of corrected images, obtain a final estimate of the scene illumination color for the source image. This approach allows for the evaluation of multiple candidate illuminates to determine an estimate of the scene illumination color.

  • Patent number: 11943419
    Abstract: An image processing device comprising a processor configured to generate a refocused image from an input image and an map indicating depth information for the image, by the steps of: for each of a plurality of planes associated with respective depths within the image: generating a depth mask having values indicating whether regions of the input image are within a specified range of the plane, wherein an assessment of whether a region is within the specified range of the plane is made through the evaluation of a differentiable function of the range between regions of the input image and the plane as determined from the map; generating a masked image from the input image and the generated depth mask; refocusing the masked image using a blurring kernel to generate a refocused partial image; and generating the refocussed image from the plurality of refocussed partial images.

  • Patent number: 11938483
    Abstract: Provided herein are an optical test platform and corresponding method of manufacturing the same. The test platform may include a shell defining a cavity for receiving a sample tube, a first aperture, and a second aperture. The first aperture and the second aperture of the shell may each be configured to optically couple the cavity with an exterior of the shell. The test platform may further include a first window and a second window embedded in the shell. The first window may seal a first aperture and the second window may seal a second aperture. The first window and second window may each permit the optical coupling of the cavity with the exterior of the shell. The first window and the second window may be optically coupled via the cavity, and the shell may prohibit optical coupling between the first window and the second window through the shell.

  • Publication number: 20240098186
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for centralized validation of potential network calls, such as calls proposing database transactions, on a distributed system. The distributed system may include multiple systems that apply independent criteria for validating proposals, which criteria may not be available external to the individual systems. Moreover, the systems may lack an ability to validate proposals prior to submitting such proposals for commitment. A centralized network call parameter validation system as disclosed herein may validate potential network calls with high confidence by applying probability models of data pattern and hashing digit checksum to potential network call parameter values, which models are generated based on statistical analysis of historical network call values.

  • Patent number: 11934650
    Abstract: A method for managing display of data on a computing device includes obtaining a grid state for a grid, identifying a sync scroll group associated with the grid, updating a sync scroll groups data structure based on the identifying, making a first determination that a second grid is associated with the sync scroll group, and based on the first determination, updating a second grid state for the second grid based on the first grid state, wherein updating the second grid state for the second grid triggers an update to a display of the second grid in a browser display on the computing device.

  • Patent number: 11934768
    Abstract: An electronic document associated with users of a collaborative document platform is identified. The electronic document is associated with an approval data structure including entries that correspond to approval requests. A portion of an approval data structure is included within the content of the electronic document for presentation to a first user. A first user updates a first entry of the portion of the approval data structure included within the content of the electronic is detected. The update to the first entry corresponds to a first approval request for a second user to approve a portion of the electronic document. A first notification is transmitted to a second client device associated with the second user. The first notification indicates the first approval request. The approval data structure is updated to include data of the first entry.

  • Publication number: 20240076891
    Abstract: A system for basing drones is described. A network of geographically diverse hangars provides storage and charging locations as well as backhaul communications infrastructure and video monitoring. As drones are needed, a central command point tasks an available drone, which may or may not already be located in proximity to a target. If additional drones are needed, drones can be flown to the area of interest and continuous coverage provided by charging drones while an active drone is conducting the mission, then rotating charged drones into the active mission. Structures for the hangars, the overall system, and methods of operation are described.

  • Patent number: 11900486
    Abstract: Improved technological solutions are introduced for providing a secure and effective and enhanced clustering/grouping solution that is useful, for example, in an online dating forum as well as any number of other industries. The ability to attend live events in person or remotely is coupled with presence location and automatic verification of user devices and identities. This allows secured communication between participants without having to disclose actual contact information of the participants or their device addresses. An improved algorithm that groups members/items effectively based on a variety of matching criteria, with lowered possibilities of errors and more efficient use of processing power, is now introduced.
