  • Patent number: 9398036
    Abstract: One or more techniques and/or systems are provided for file acquisition for reputation evaluation. A reputation service may be configured to evaluate files and provide reputations of such files to clients (e.g., an indication as to whether a file is safe or malicious). If the reputation service receives a reputation request for a file that is unknown to the reputation service (e.g., a file not yet fully acquired by the reputation service), then the reputation service may identify a set of chunks into which the file can be partitioned. The reputation service may obtain chunks from various clients, such as a first chunk from a first client and a second chunk from a second client. Such chunks may be evaluated to assign a reputation to the file. In this way, the reputation service may retrieve portions of a file in a distributed manner for reputation evaluation.

  • Patent number: 8682736
    Abstract: The claimed subject matter provides a system and/or a method that facilitates communicating intent-related data to a user. A display engine can enable exploration of a portion of image data during a browsing session. An intent component can receive a portion of data related to the browsing session, wherein the portion of data is at least one of a collection of browsing history or a portion of data displayed during a browsing session. The intent component can further evaluate the portion of data to ascertain a combined intent of a user. A selective ad component can infer an incompleteness of the combined intent to trigger a pre-qualification for an offer related to at least one of an item or service that fulfills the incompleteness.

  • Patent number: 8346017
    Abstract: The claimed subject matter provides a system and/or a method that facilitates simulating a portion 2-dimensional (2D) data for implementation within a 3-dimensional (3D) virtual environment. A 3D virtual environment can enable a 3D exploration of a 3D image constructed from a collection of two or more 2D images, the 3D image is constructed by combining the two or more 2D images based upon a respective image perspective. An analyzer can evaluate the collection of two or more 2D images to identify a portion of the 3D image that is unrepresented by the combined two or more 2D images. A synthetic view generator can create a simulated synthetic view for the portion of 3D image that is unrepresented, the simulated synthetic view replicates a 2D image with a respective image perspective for the unrepresented portion of 3D image.

  • Publication number: 20070198632
    Abstract: A method and system to transmit multimedia data from a connected capture device is provided. The system includes a capture device wirelessly connected to a secure storage device, which authenticates and communicates with a second communication device. The connected capture device captures multimedia data and metadata and stores the multimedia data in an unprocessed format. The multimedia data and metadata are stored separately and are automatically transmitted to the secure storage device. The secure storage device is polled by the second communication device to retrieve the multimedia data and metadata matching criteria selected by a user of the second communication device. The second communication device receives the multimedia data and metadata and encodes the multimedia data and metadata based on a predefined format. Moreover, the second communication device infers additional metadata from the received multimedia data and metadata and encodes the additional metadata in the predefined format.

  • Publication number: 20070050321
    Abstract: Described is the adding of padding to a content file (e.g., image and/or audiovisual file) for anticipated subsequent use such that the content file need not be re-encoded to add metadata and other data to it. For example, padding may be added to an image file directly after an image file directory, whereby the directory can grow as needed into the padded space. Metadata can likewise be added to the padding, e.g., from the opposite direction that the directory extends into the padding. The padding may be added on the first re-encoding of the file, reducing or eliminating the need for subsequent re-encoding. The padding also may be used to track dead space in the file, with adjacent regions of dead space coalesced into a single region of dead space.

  • Publication number: 20060290702
    Abstract: Methods and systems for processing, e.g., non-destructively processing, digital image data utilizing one or more Effect Layers are provided. Effect Layers combine Effects in useful ways that simplify the process of creating Effect graphs. Each Effect Layer contains a logical Effect sub-graph that includes a plurality of logical Effects, e.g., a main Effect, a blend Effect, and a mask Effect. In one embodiment, a method in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention includes receiving input regarding processing of digital image data, determining the impact that input will have on each logical Effect upon processing of digital image data, and creating a physical Effect sub-graph in accordance with the determined impact. The physical Effect sub-graph may closely resemble or appear nothing like the logical Effect sub-graph. Images may subsequently be rendered utilizing the physical Effect sub-graph.

  • Publication number: 20060285761
    Abstract: A unified method for processing Raw and pre-processed digital images is provided. The method may include receiving digital image data and determining if the data is Raw or pre-processed. If the digital image data is Raw, the method may further include receiving modifications to the Raw image data, applying a sensor profile and an output profile to the data to create output-ready digital image data, and outputting the output-ready digital image data. If, on the other hand, the digital image data is pre-processed, the method may further include receiving a sensor profile that has been applied to the pre-processed image data (or a proxy therefore), converting the pre-processed image data to linear image data using the sensor profile, receiving modifications to the linear image data, applying the sensor profile and an output profile to the data to create output-ready digital image data, and outputting the output-ready digital image data.
