  • Patent number: 10841112
    Abstract: Described herein is a system that generates and displays a timeline for communication content. The system determines events that occur in association with the communication content (e.g., a video conference, a chat or messaging conversation, etc.). The system adds a representation of an event to the timeline in association with a time at which the event occurs. Moreover, the system enables user interaction with the representation so that the user can view information associated with an event.

  • Patent number: 10775997
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein that are capable of causing a control interface to be presented on a touch-enabled device based on a motion or absence thereof. A motion, such as a hover gesture, can be detected and the control interface presented in response to the detection. Alternatively, absence of a motion can be detected and the control interface presented in response to the detection. A hover gesture can occur without a user physically touching a touch screen of a touch-enabled device. Instead, the user's finger or fingers can be positioned at a spaced distance above the touch screen. The touch screen can detect that the user's fingers are proximate to the touch screen, such as through capacitive sensing. Additionally, finger movement can be detected while the fingers are hovering to expand the existing options for gesture input.

  • Patent number: 10705683
    Abstract: This disclosure describes a system in which a user is enabled to efficiently locate and view messages of a conversation that are likely to be more relevant or pertinent to the user. The system is configured to determine that a message in the conversation is associated with a trigger feature that comprises a piece of information and/or an interaction from another user that is likely worthy of the user's attention. The system can then generate a visual notification associated with the trigger feature. The visual notification can be displayed in association with a graphical element that represents the conversation. Upon receiving an indication of a selection of the visual notification, the system can display the message and trigger feature and/or change visual characteristics associated with the message to bring focus to the message.

  • Publication number: 20200159204
    Abstract: The invention is a method to optimize solar photovoltaic power plant repowering by making use of the smart predictive and preventive maintenance which detects failures in modules or in cells within modules, i.e., aerial inspections by infrared thermography and/or electroluminescence. In the method object of the invention, the detected failed modules are separated in different types of failures: A—irreversible; B—reversible and C—partly reusable. Repowering consists on substituting modules of type A for new, more powerful ones, and re-group them series-connected within the same strings (1). Modules with type B failures are repaired and installed back in their original place, and modules C are either re-grouped in series-strings, or substituted by new, more powerful modules, also series connected in strings (1).

  • Patent number: 10658130
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein relating to a momentary contact switch that can be both manually and electronically actuated. In some embodiments, an electronic module can be added to a manual momentary contact switch to enable electronic control. The momentary contact switch can be transitioned between first, second, and third electrical states based on the rotation of a shaft between first, second, and third rotational positions. Rotary arms are selectively engaged by pull arms connected to a master solenoid to selectively rotate the shaft from the first rotational position to the second and third rotational positions.

  • Patent number: 10630740
    Abstract: Described herein is a system that generates and displays an interactive timeline for a teleconference session, where the interactive timeline includes a representation of supplemental recorded content that has been added after a live viewing of the teleconference session has ended. The system can inject the supplemental recorded content into previously recorded content or append the supplemental recorded content to the interactive timeline. Moreover, the system can cause the supplemental recorded content to subsequently be displayed in one of multiple different views. Furthermore, the system can generate and/or distribute a notification of the supplemental recorded content so that participants to the teleconference session can be made aware of additional activity contributed to the teleconference session (e.g., by someone who missed the live viewing of the teleconference session).

  • Publication number: 20190332921
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to decentralized storage and methods for artificial intelligence. For example, blockchain storage structure can be adapted for storing artificial intelligence learnings. Nodes of a chain can includes hash codes generated and validated by a community of learners operating computing system across a distributed network. The hash codes can be validated hash codes in which a community of learners determines through a competitive process a consensus interpretation of a machine learning. The validated hash codes can represent machine learnings, without storing the underlying media or files in the chain itself. This can allow a customer to subsequently query the chain, such as by establishing a query condition and searching the chain, and determine new learnings and insights from the community.
