  • Patent number: 10229218
    Abstract: A method and system for identifying relevant messages in a conversation graph includes identifying a context message within the conversation graph. The context message is marked as relevant and additional messages are marked as relevant based on various criteria. A plurality of authors of messages marked as relevant is identified and a plurality of unmarked messages authored by the plurality of authors is marked as relevant. In addition, a plurality of parent messages of messages marked as relevant are identified and marked as relevant. A list comprising messages marked as relevant is then provided to a user. Multiple steps can be repeated until convergence after which the list can be provided to the user.

  • Publication number: 20160324363
    Abstract: The invention is comprised of a rotating glass coffee bean gas flame torrefaction drum which roasts and rapidly grinds fresh coffee beans. This feeds a brewing device designed to accelerate making solid ice as quickly as possible in order to arrest the hydrolysis kinetics of 2-furfuryrlthiol. The heat exchanger portion has exceptionally high surface area heat exchanger coils. Higher mass exchange of the device prevent specific chemical component flavor loss. In addition, the torrefaction process in the glass drum attached to the device with rapid grinding process allows for much higher levels of 2-furfurylthiol in ice cubes. The glass allows visualization of the flame. The consumer enjoys of the product visually and by smell prior to product consumption.

  • Patent number: 9449050
    Abstract: A method, system, and non-transitory computer readable medium for identifying a relevant conversation. The method can include: identifying a conversation graph including identifiers of messages posted by a set of authoring accounts; identifying a relevance score for each authoring account; applying, by a computer processor, a first relevance filter to the conversation graph in order to modify the set of relevance scores; applying, by the computer processor and after applying the first relevance filter, a second relevance filter to the conversation graph in order to further modify the set of relevance scores; selecting, based on the set of relevance scores and after applying the second relevance filter, a subset of messages of the conversation graph for inclusion in the relevant conversation; and providing at least a portion of the relevant conversation to a client device.

  • Patent number: 9418117
    Abstract: A method, system, and non-transitory computer readable medium for displaying relevant messages of a conversation graph. A reverse chronological stream of messages broadcasted to a recipient account of a messaging platform is received. The set of authoring accounts having a predefined graph relationship with the recipient account. Among the stream of messages, a message determined to be a part of a relevant conversation is identified. Additional content associated with the conversation is then inserted into the stream. A client displaying the stream displays the conversation related content with one or more display elements depicting relationships among messages of the conversation.

  • Patent number: 7793157
    Abstract: The subject matter herein provides for a method and apparatus for comparison of network systems using live traffic in real-time. The inventive technique presents real-world workload in real-time with no external impact (i.e. no impact on the system under test), and it enables comparison against a production system for correctness verification. A preferred embodiment of the invention is a testing tool for the pseudo-live testing of CDN content staging servers, According to the invention, traffic between clients and the live production CDN servers is monitored by a simulator device, which then replicates this workload onto a system under test (SUT). The simulator detects divergences between the outputs from the SUT and live production servers, allowing detection of erroneous behavior. To the extent possible, the SUT is completely isolated from the outside world so that errors or crashes by this system do not affect either the CDN customers or the end users. Thus, the SUT does not interact with end users (i.e.
