  • Patent number: 10740361
    Abstract: Systems and devices for the evaluation and analysis of the usage of commands within user interfaces are disclosed. In an example, operations for clustering and analysis of commands performed in a user interface may include: processing data that identifies a set of commands used in a software application; identifying coordinated usage of respective commands of the set of commands; identifying clusters of commands based on the coordinated usage among the respective commands; defining associations within the clusters of commands based on relevancy, wherein the relevancy is determined for a respective cluster from clustering parameters such as a confidence value and a support level value; and identifying output features in the software application based on the clusters of commands. In a further example, the output features may include a presentation of a suggested command, or a change to a presentation of a user interface object.

  • Patent number: 10735499
    Abstract: A control-plane component of a virtual network interface (VNI) multiplexing service assigns one or more VNIs as members of a first interface group. A first VNI of the interface group is attached to a first compute instance. Network traffic directed to a particular endpoint address associated with the first interface group is to be distributed among members of the first interface group by client-side components of the service. The control-plane component propagates membership metadata of the first interface group to the client-side components. In response to a detection of an unhealthy state of the first compute instance, the first VNI is attached to a different compute instance by the control-plane component.

  • Patent number: 10733431
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system may access first, second, and third probability models that are respectively associated with predetermined first and second body parts and a predetermined segment connecting the first and second body parts. Each model includes probability values associated with regions in an image, with each value representing the probability of the associated region containing the associated body part or segment. The system may select a first and second region based on the first probability model and a third region based on the second probability model. Based on the third probability model, the system may compute a first probability score for regions connecting the first and third regions and a second probability score for regions connecting the second and third regions. Based on the first and second probability scores, the system may select the first region to indicate where the predetermined first body part appears in the image.

  • Publication number: 20200234244
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media for providing profiles with limited permission level functionality in the network. In response to receiving a request to post the new employment listing, a collaboration system updates a permission list of the employment listing to provide a first user account with an administrator permission level in relation to the employment listing. The administrator permission level provides a first function and a second function in relation to the employment listing. The collaboration system receives a request to tag a second user account to the employment listing and updates the permission list to provide the second user account with a limited permission level in relation to the employment listing. The limited permission level provides the second user account with permission to perform the first function in relation to the employment listing but does not provide permission to perform the second function.

  • Publication number: 20200202303
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media for identifying profiles in a network based on relevance scores. A relevancy system identifies a set of candidate user profiles based on user profiles that correspond to users that are members of a first organization. For each candidate user profile, the relevancy system determines scores indicating a relevance level of the respective candidate user profile to an employment listing based on multiple relevance categories. The relevancy system applies weights to the scores and determined a relevance score for the candidate user profile based on the weighted relevancy scores. The weighs are determined based on historical hiring data and indicate a relative impact of each relevance category on hiring. The relevancy system selects a subset of the candidate user profiles based on the relevance scores and transmits notifications regarding the employment listing to the subset of the candidate user profiles.
