  • Patent number: 11847247
    Abstract: A device implementing a system for anonymizing user data provided for server-side operations includes a processor configured to receive user input including a search term, wherein first and second data structures are stored on the device, the first data structure including user interest data items that correspond to prior user activity, the second data structure including topic data items mapped to the user interest data items, the topic data items being broader than the user interest data items. The processor accesses the second data structure to obtain one or more topic data items. The processor transmits, to a server, the search term and one or more topic data items for obtaining a query suggestion or search result. The processor receives, from the server, the query suggestion or search result, the query suggestion or search result having been obtained based on the search term and one or more topic data items.

  • Patent number: 11842710
    Abstract: A processor-based method of producing a generative musical composition is disclosed herein. The method includes the step of receiving a briefing narrative which describes a musical journey by referencing a plurality of emotional descriptions related to a plurality of musical sections. The generative musical composition is assembled with regard to the briefing narrative through the selection and concatenation of Form Atoms with tags that align with the emotional descriptions related to the musical sections. The Form Atoms, which have compositional nature aligned with the emotional descriptions and self-contained constructional properties representative of the historical corpus of music, are then selected and substituted into the generative composition.

  • Patent number: 11842040
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided herein for personalizing images that correspond to a media asset identifier by using user profile information. As an example, the television series “Community” has several actors, such as Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, and Ken Jeong. Poster art developed by an editor o50533238_1f “Community” may include an image that portrays each of Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, and Ken Jeong. In order to personalize the image, control circuitry may determine which actor(s) the user prefers, and crop out only those actors in the poster art to create a personalized image. As an example, if the user prefers Joel McHale, control circuitry may crop out the portrayal of Joel McHale and use only that portion of the image to display next to other text describing “Community.

  • Patent number: 11841908
    Abstract: Based on a selection by a user of first one or more values of one or more events displayed in a graphical interface, an extraction rule is automatically determined that is capable of extracting a field label-value pair at least partially within at least the selected one or more values. An option is displayed that correspond to the determined extraction rule in the graphical interface. Based on the user selecting the option in the graphical interface, display is caused of second one or more values of one or more field label-value pairs extracted from the one or more events using the extraction rule. The one or more events may be displayed in a table format, and the first one or more value may be selected by the user selecting one or more cells, columns, or text portions in the table format.

  • Patent number: 11841854
    Abstract: Techniques are described for differentiation of search results for accurate query output. Generally, such techniques provide intelligent grouping and output of search results by considering contextual factors that relate different search results. For instance, data records that are aggregated in response to a query are inspected to identify attributes (e.g., data types) and attribute values to determine contextual relationships between attributes. The contextual relationships are utilized to differentiate the data records into different groups for query output, thus enabling an accurate characterization of query output not enabled by conventional search technologies.

  • Patent number: 11829417
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer-readable storage media, for context-based customization using semantic graph data. In some implementations, semantic graph data indicating objects and relationships among the objects is stored. Usage data is generated to indicate (i) levels of usage of the objects and (ii) contexts in which the objects are used. A query is received that is associated with a user and that includes data indicating a context of the user. Customized weights for connections among the objects is determined based on (i) the levels of usage indicated by the usage data and (ii) scores indicating a degree of similarity among the contexts indicated by the usage data and the context of the user. A response to the query is provided based on the customized weights for the connections among the objects indicated by the semantic graph data.

  • Patent number: 11824928
    Abstract: A media server machine may be configured to provide media content within a datastream. This datastream may be provided to a media device that is configured to present the media content on a display. Also, this datastream may contemporaneously contain an “app-sync indicator” for the media content. The app-sync indicator is a data structure that signals the media device to launch an application on a companion device. By providing the app-sync indicator contemporaneously with the media content in the datastream, the launching of the application on the companion device may be synchronized with the media content. The app-sync indicator may specify the application to be launched. Also, the app-sync indicator may specify supplemental content to be presented by the launched application on the companion device.
