  • Patent number: 10242033
    Abstract: Techniques for extrapolative searches are described herein. In one or more implementations, a searches are conducted using an extrapolative and additive mechanism that expands a specific query into one or more generalized queries. To do so, keywords contained in an input search query are extracted to use as a basis for a search related to content. The extracted keywords are expanded by categorization of name entities recognized from the keywords into corresponding generalized terms. Query strings to use for the search are built using combinations of keywords that are extracted from the text and corresponding generalized terms obtained by expanding the keywords. A search is conducted using the expanded queries and images results returned by the search are exposed as suggested images to represent the content.

  • Patent number: 10019648
    Abstract: Image classification based on a calculated camera-to-object distance is described. The camera-to-object distance is calculated based in part on a ratio of a measured dimension of an identified feature in the digital image compared to a known physical dimension of the identified feature in real life. A human anatomical constant, such as a dimension of the human eye, may be used as the feature to calculate the camera-to-object distance. The camera-to-object distance can be used to classify the digital image, such as by determining whether the image is a selfie. The camera-to-object distance may also be used for image editing operations to be performed on the digital image.

  • Patent number: 9712569
    Abstract: A computer implemented method and apparatus for timeline-synchronized note taking during a web conference. The method comprises receiving a note from a user in a web conference; generating metadata that identifies a timestamp in the web conference when the note was created and a user identifier of the user who authored the note; and storing the note and the metadata with a recording of the web conference.

  • Publication number: 20150186363
    Abstract: Techniques for a search-powered language usage service are described in which existing collections of documents are employed as sources of correct usage. A service may operate to search documents from the Internet or other document sources to produce a usage database of “correct” usage phrases that spans different languages, styles, and other contexts. Metadata associated with phrases added to the database may be used to understand the context of usage and perform usage checks using filtered, context-specific phrases for particular languages, dialects, geographic regions, styles, custom scenarios, and so forth. In one approach, separate databases for different contexts may be derived from data maintained in a global database. The service may expose the usage database(s) to enable applications to analyze target documents by comparing phrases to correct usage phrases and perform responsive actions to facilitate correct usage in various ways.
