  • Patent number: 10643004
    Abstract: This application relates to a technique that enables a software application to access files at a computing device while enforcing privacy measures. The technique includes a file browser that can act on behalf of a software application to communicate a user file selection to a relevant file access service. While operating in a sandboxed mode, the file browser can communicate the user file selection while the software application is unaware of the file browser's activities. The file browser can display a set of files that are available for user selection using an enumeration logic that is distinct from an enumeration logic implemented by either the software application or the relevant file access service. When a user file selection is detected, the file browser can assist the software application in receiving a secure URL to enable the software application to directly-access the file associated with the user file selection.

    Abstract: In an embodiment, a first media presentation session is established between a first Source and the Sink, and a second media presentation session between a second Source and the Sink. First and second media streams are streamed to the Sink by the first and second Sources, respectively. The Sink presents the first and second media streams in respective portions of a display screen, and detects user input at the Sink that is indicative of a trigger to transfer data originated from the first Source to the second Source. The Sink coordinates with one or both of the first Source and the second Source to facilitate the data to be delivered to the second Source in response to the detection. As a result of the coordination, the second Source receives the first Source-originated data (e.g., from the first Source directly, or via the Sink).

  • Patent number: 10521804
    Abstract: An interaction manager assigns messages posted on a social media website to a support case in a database system. A support agent may tag a message posted by a user for directing to the support case. The interaction manger assigns the tagged message to the support case and activates a timer to track a time period. During the time period, the interaction manager assigns other messages posted by the same user to the support case. The interaction manager may reset the time period whenever the support agent replies to one of the messages posted by the user or the support agent tags another one of the user messages for directing to the support case. The interaction manager reduces the burden of having to manually review and manage every message posted on the social media website.

  • Patent number: 10516704
    Abstract: Various embodiments for implementing a multimedia conference session utilizing a software defined networking (SDN) architecture are described. Various embodiments include a SDN media controller (SDNMC) that initially receives a request to establish a multimedia conferencing session between a plurality of endpoints. Based on the request, the SDNMC allocates at least one virtual media address for the multimedia conferencing session and creates a stream table based on the at least one virtual media address. After processing the request, the SDNMC transmits one or more SDN commands that includes the stream table to the SDN controller. The SDN controller receives the SDN commands at a northbound interface and sends one or more SDN instructions to one or more SDN devices at a southbound interface. The SDN devices update their routing information in order to relay media traffic corresponding to the virtual media address directly between the endpoints.

  • Patent number: 10515085
    Abstract: Various embodiments relate generally to data science and data analysis, computer software and systems, and wired and wireless network communications to provide an interface between repositories of disparate datasets and computing machine-based entities that seek access to the datasets, and, more specifically, to a computing and data storage platform that facilitates consolidation of one or more datasets, whereby a collaborative data layer and associated logic facilitate, for example, efficient access to, and implementation of, collaborative datasets. In some examples, a system may include data ingestion controller configured to format datasets to form a first and a second atomized dataset, the second atomized dataset including the first atomized dataset and one or more other atomized datasets. The system may include a dataset query engine configured to identify a portion of a dataset relevant to a query, and to retrieve query results from at least one of different data repositories.

  • Patent number: 10511653
    Abstract: A document collaboration apparatus and method allows users to create, edit, manage, collaborate, and communicate over sets of documents, such as word processor documents, spreadsheets, or other types of documents. A set of documents is obtained and split into a series of fragments that are stored in a secure way in a combination of a relational database and an unstructured content store. Access to individual fragments within the series of fragments is granted to users, and proposed changes and comments are obtained in a form of structured discussions that are associated with the fragments from the document set. A controlled workflow-driven mechanism for discussion-centered collaboration is provided. Any changes to the documents from the document set are restricted to the changes that are approved in associated discussions only, providing controlled collaboration between multiple parties or groups of users, such as in multi-party contract negotiations and large scale collaborations.

  • Patent number: 10502628
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed towards systems, methods and computer program products for correcting inter-instrumentation variation among color measurement devices. In one particular implementation, a method for correcting inter-instrument variation among color measurement devices includes obtaining a set of color measurements of an item under analysis. The described approach also includes accessing a conversion model, wherein the conversion module has been generated using one or more ANN back propagated over a collection of data points, where the data points correspond to measurements of a color standard using devices from a control device batch and a test device batch. Using the conversion module, a processor is configured to transform the set of color measurements into a calibrated color measurement set. The calibrated color measurement set is then output to at least one display, memory or remote computing device.

  • Patent number: 10503562
    Abstract: Work units are received into, and processed from, holding queues. A partition, associated with a unique holding queue, is assigned to each work unit stored in a given holding queue, according to a partitioning rule. Work units are separated from each holding queue into one of two or more other queues stored in the same storage as that holding queue. A ready queue (relocation queue) is for each work unit whose assigned partition is (is not) associated with the holding queue in which it is stored. Each work unit in each relocation queue is relocated to the holding queue associated with the partition assigned to that work unit. The work units are repartitioned in response to a change in the partitioning rule to a new partitioning rule before the holding queues are empty.
