  • Publication number: 20210390486
    Abstract: Described embodiments provide systems, methods and computer implemented instructions for prioritizing sequential application tasks. A system receives, from an application, a sequence of tasks to be performed by users using clients. The system identifies a first user to perform a first task in the sequence of tasks, and a second user to perform a second task in the sequence of tasks that is subsequent to the first task. The system determines the state of a first client of the first user and a state of a second client of the second user. The system establishes a rank for the first task based on the states of the first client and the second client. The system provides, to the first client, the rank for the first task and the state of the second client. The system generates a graphical user interface indicating the rank and state of the second client.

  • Publication number: 20210349757
    Abstract: An example computing system is disclosed that may send a first notification to a first client device, the first notification indicating a first task to be performed by a first user with respect to a resource accessible to the computing system. The computing system may determine a second task of a second user with respect to the resource, and may further determine that the second user has completed the second task. Based at least in part on the second user having completed the second task, the computing system may determine a parameter indicating an urgency level of the first task, and may cause an indication of the urgency level to be presented on the first client device.

  • Publication number: 20210326333
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to update for a configuration file. In an embodiment, a computer-implemented method is disclosed. According to the method, a first container image and a second container image are obtained. The first container image comprise a first sequence of layers built based on a sequence of commands in a configuration file, respectively, and the second container image comprise a second sequence of layers built based on the sequence of commands, respectively. File dependency between at least two commands of the sequence of commands is determined by comparing files associated with the first sequence of layers with files associated with the second sequence of layers. An update to the sequence of commands in the configuration file is determined based on the file dependency. In other embodiments, a system and a computer program product are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210103831
    Abstract: Methods and systems for recommending one or more computing devices for accessing one or more applications are described herein. Resource requirements may be determined for at least one application. Such resource requirements may be, e.g., a display resolution. Computing device attributes may be determined for computing devices capable of executing the application. The resource requirements and/or the computing device attributes may be normalized and/or modified based on machine learning techniques. The machine learning techniques may modify the application resource requirements and/or computing device attributes based on user feedback. Distances between the resource requirements and the computing device attributes may be determined. A recommendation to use a particular preferred computing device may be transmitted based on the distance comparison. The recommendation may be based on the minimum or maximum distance calculated. User feedback regarding the recommendation may be received.

  • Patent number: 10965959
    Abstract: The present application provides a multi-frame quality enhancement method and device for a lossily compressed video. The method comprises: performing quality enhancement on the i-th frame of a decompressed video stream using m frames correlated with the i-th frame to play the i-th frame with enhanced quality. The m frames are frames in the video stream. The number of the same pixels or corresponding pixels of each of the m frames and the i-th frame is greater than a preset threshold. m is a natural number greater than 1. In an implementation, a non-peak-quality frame positioned between two peak quality frames may be enhanced using the peak quality frames. The method may mitigate the quality fluctuation across a plurality of frames for providing playback of the video stream and may improve the quality of all frames in the video after the lossy compression.
