  • Patent number: 10289659
    Abstract: A content server retrieves the code and other content of a page and generates a preview of the page. The page preview could be an image that depicts a snapshot of the page, such as a screenshot, or an image map that includes links selectable by a user. The content server further modifies the original code used to load the page such that the modified code instructs a browser application to render and display the page preview for a first period of time and to render and display the actual page in place of the page preview after the first period of time. The content server may use the shadow document object model (DOM) framework to provide the page preview.

  • Patent number: 10282382
    Abstract: A plurality of input data to be used to compute a first output is received. The first output is computed. It is determined that the computed first output is outside a pre-determined first-output limit. A plurality of hyperlinks is displayed on a display device. Each hyperlink provides a link to a process for making adjustments to the plurality of input data to bring the first output within the pre-determined first-output limit. Selection of one of the plurality of hyperlinks (the “selected hyperlink”) is detected. A process associated with the selected hyperlink is followed to produce an adjustment to the plurality of input data to bring the first output within the first pre-determined first-output limit. The adjusted plurality of input data is used to plan implementation of a system. The sequence of selection of hyperlinks is tracked in order to reinforce the prioritization and order of future suggestions. The system is implemented.

    Abstract: Various embodiments of a system and method for tracking service requests are described. Embodiments may include call tree generation logic configured to receive multiple request identifiers associated with a respective one of multiple service requests. Each given request identifier may include an origin identifier, a depth value, and a request stack comprising one or more interaction identifiers. The call tree generation logic may also be configured to, based on multiple request identifiers that each include an origin identifier associated with a particular root request, generating a data structure that specifies a hierarchy of services called to fulfill that particular root request. Based on one or more of the interaction identifiers and one or more of the depth values, the generated data structure may specify for each given service of the hierarchy: a parent service that called the given service, and one or more child services called by the given service.

  • Patent number: 9286644
    Abstract: A way of sharing a set of data where each data item is stored at a different file path. The data items may be files or folders that reside on different remote storage servers or within the same file system. One or more data items in the set of data do not share a common root folder. Data items in the set of data that share a common root folder are stored amongst other data items in the common root folder that do not belonging to the set of data items to be shared. A single URL or link is generated to provide immediate access to the set of data to recipients of the URL or link.

  • Patent number: 9268856
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to system, methods and computer program products for generating a graphical module for the display of a query-specific content. The method according to one embodiment comprises receiving a query, determining a category identifier for the query and retrieving a category template corresponding to the category identifier for the query. At least one template query is performed, the template query corresponding to a request for data specified by the category template, and a template module is generated that comprises the data retrieved by the template query. The template module is combined with a search results page responsive to the query for display to a user.

  • Patent number: 9268770
    Abstract: Systems and methods may provide proactive news analytics based on integrated prediction statements. Users may extract and collect conditional statements from research reports. A compiled list based on the processing/linking of statements for signal generation may then be created. Similarly, a list of counter statements that are assigned a conflict rating that specifies how much agreement/disagreement on a specific topic exists for the counter statement and the statement itself may be created. The custom library may have semantic capabilities to justify conditional statements in order to capture meaning and identify supporting news related to the statement. When a relevant event is detected that relates to a conditional statement, expected conclusions are linked, and customized indexes are calculated to allow for analysis of the relevant event.

  • Patent number: 9262778
    Abstract: A method and a system to generate mobile storefronts are described. The storefront application is executable by a user device to allow a user of the user device to access the storefront and purchase an item from a merchant. The system comprises an initialization module that provides an initialization interface to an identified merchant that is used to initialize creation of a storefront application. A storefront module provides a generation interface that receives, from the merchant, an appearance for the storefront application. An inventory module receives an inventory information describing items for sale. A policy module provides a policy interface that receives policies of the storefront. A platform module generates source code that when compiled, becomes the storefront application. The source code is generated based at least on one or more templates and the inventory.

  • Patent number: 9262185
    Abstract: A dynamic document template having static data, dynamic data, and/or procedural statements may be called by an application on a server. The dynamic document template is separate from the application program and is processed to form an interim script, which is then executed by a host computer system. The script generates document records in HTML or XML format that are output to a document. The data and procedural statements in the dynamic document template may be distinguished through interpreting mark-up language surrounding the data and procedural statements. The dynamic document templates execute in a separate namespace from the application and preserve the state of data in the application. A given application may call more than one dynamic document template to generate different portions of the output document. Additionally, the dynamic document templates may be replaced with new templates without affecting the application.

  • Patent number: 9251253
    Abstract: Methods and systems for indexing patent related prior art citations are disclosed. Electronic documents can be obtained from one or more patent information systems. An OCR process can be performed on some of the electronic documents. Citations within the documents can be identified and compared to a trusted records list. The citations can be associated with one or more predetermined categories. For example, citations can be categorized into groups such as when a reference is cited (e.g., with original filing, pre and post allowance), who provided the reference (e.g., cited by the applicant, or the examiner), and how the reference is characterized (e.g., statutory basis, combination of references). The citations and corresponding categories can be output to a user or made available for subsequent processing.
