  • Patent number: 10373171
    Abstract: A system and method for making engagement offers. A processor monitors a navigation path of a user navigating a website. The processor makes an offer for engagement with the user on a first web page reached by the user upon following the navigation path. The processor monitors a reaction of the user to the offer for engagement, and updates tag data associated with a second web page encountered by the user while traversing the navigation path. The tag data is updated based on the reaction of the user to the offer for engagement.

  • Patent number: 10269157
    Abstract: Provided are a template selection system, as well as a template selection method, and recording medium storing a template selection program, for selecting a template that will not appear incompatible with a target image when the target image is combined with the template. Specifically, a target image is selected and target image data representing the selected target image is transmitted to an image compositing server. An impression evaluation value of the target image is calculated and templates for which a discrepancy with respect to the calculated impression evaluation value is less than a threshold value are selected. The target image is combined with the templates and image data representing the resulting composite images are transmitted to a smartphone. A desired composite image is selected by the user from among the composite images displayed on the smartphone.

    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and system for applying summaries to electronic content by generating an Essence Layer File which includes user generated annotations highlighting important parts of given electronic content. The Essence Layer file is applied on top of and is anchored to the electronic content rather than editing the saved file that the electronic content is stored as. Essence Layer Files paired with electronic content are streamed to consumers through both direct and social network distribution systems. The consumers rate the value of the summaries thereby creating a crowd-sourced merit system.

  • Patent number: 10223585
    Abstract: Disclosed systems and methods generate page segmented documents from unstructured vector graphics documents. The page segmentation application executing on a computing device receives as input an unstructured vector graphics document comprising drawing commands. The application generates an element proposal for each of many areas on a page of the input document tentatively identified as being page elements. Each of the element proposals may be generated at least in part based on the drawing commands. The page segmentation application classifies each of the element proposals into one of a plurality of defined type of categories of page elements at least in part based on the drawing commands. The page segmentation application may further refine at least one of the element proposals and select a final element proposal for each element within the unstructured vector document. One or more of the page segmentation steps may be performed using a neural network.

  • Patent number: 10146758
    Abstract: Features are provided for the distributed moderation of content annotations and the dynamic display of the moderated annotations. The annotations can be selectively distributed to subsets of user devices currently viewing a content item, thereby limiting the number of annotations that each user device receives. By selectively distributing only subsets of new annotations, users can give more attention to individual annotations and provide meaningful moderation information (e.g., ratings, “likes,” responses, etc.) regarding individual annotations. The annotations can be displayed in a manner that emphasizes the more highly-rated annotations and/or commonly-submitted annotations over other annotations. The annotations can also be displayed in a manner that provides visual cues regarding the sources of individual annotations.
