  • Publication number: 20190116271
    Abstract: An environment is described in which a processing system provides application-level usage information to users. In one scenario, for example, the processing system may provide personal usage information to a user who is operating a user device. The personal usage information itemizes the amount of data (and/or other resources) that has been consumed by each application run by the user device. In another scenario, the processing system may provide expected usage information associated with at least one candidate application provided by a marketplace system. The expected usage information describes an expected consumption of data (and/or other resources) by the candidate application upon running the candidate application by the user device. The processing system can tailor the expected usage information that it sends to a particular user based on user profile data. The user profile data describes a manner in which users operate applications.

  • Patent number: 10184798
    Abstract: A device identifies signals it receives at a particular point in time, such as Wi-Fi signals and cell tower signals. The device records data indicating these identified signals, as well as data used to determine the position of the device at that particular point in time. The position of the device is determined using dead reckoning, which is separated into two stages. In the first stage, a distance and direction of movement is determined at the device based on data from various inertial sensors of the device. In the second stage, various filters, maps, and/or other techniques are used at another device (e.g., a crowd sourcing data service) thus alleviating the device of the burden of performing the second stage.

  • Patent number: 10082397
    Abstract: An identification is made as to when a device is at an anchor location, which can be a proximity zone along an edge of a dead zone or a location where a signal from a beacon is detected. In response to the device being at the anchor location, one or more inertial sensors can be activated and data from the one or more inertial sensors collected to determine a position of the device using dead reckoning. Alternatively, in response to the device being at the anchor location, a determination is made as to when to deactivate one or more inertial sensors from which data is collected to determine the position of the device using dead reckoning.

  • Publication number: 20180239990
    Abstract: A classification system classifies different aspects of content of an input image stream, such as faces, landmarks, events, and so forth. The classification system includes a general classifier and at least one specialized classifier template. The general classifier is trained to classify a large number of different aspects of content, and a specialized classifier can be trained based on a specialized classifier template during operation of the classification system to classify a particular subset of the multiple different aspects of content. The classification system determines when to use the general classifier and when to use a specialized classifier based on class skew, which refers to the temporal locality of a subset of aspects of content in the image stream.

  • Patent number: 10013332
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure are directed towards monitoring application performance during actual use, particularly mobile application performance. Described is instrumenting mobile application binaries to automatically identify a critical path in user transactions, including across asynchronous-call boundaries. Trace data is logged by the instrumented application to capture UI manipulations, thread execution, asynchronous calls and callbacks, UI updates and/or thread synchronization. The trace data is analyzed to assist developers in improving application performance.

  • Publication number: 20180167300
    Abstract: This document relates to a distributed network coordinate system. One implementation provides computer-readable storage media including instructions that may cause a processor to perform certain acts. For example, the acts may include storing an initial network location of a first device in a network. The network may include the first device and a second device. The acts may also include monitoring one or more network performance metrics related to existing application communications with the second device, and determining an updated network location of the first device, based on the initial network location and the network performance metrics. Aspects of network health can be derived from monitoring changes in the network locations of various devices within the coordinate system.

  • Publication number: 20170246544
    Abstract: A system is provided that allows a spectator to spectate video gameplay over a network. Recorded information associated with a selected recording of a player playing a video game that includes a game engine is received over the network. The recorded information includes game commands that were input to the game engine as the player was playing the game, and inputs the player made to the game to control it. The recorded information is replayed to the game at the timing in which this information was originally recorded, where this replay includes replaying the game commands to the game engine. The replay generates a playback of the selected recording which is displayed on the display screen of the spectator's computer. Upon receiving a request from the spectator to view the inputs the player made to the game they are highlighted on the screen during the playback of the selected recording.
