  • Patent number: 10708629
    Abstract: A better compromise between encoding complexity and achievable rate distortion ratio, and/or to achieve a better rate distortion ratio is achieved by using multitree sub-divisioning not only in order to subdivide a continuous area, namely the sample array, into leaf regions, but using the intermediate regions also to share coding parameters among the corresponding collocated leaf blocks. By this measure, coding procedures performed in tiles—leaf regions—locally, may be associated with coding parameters individually without having to, however, explicitly transmit the whole coding parameters for each leaf region separately. Rather, similarities may effectively exploited by using the multitree subdivision.

    Abstract: Certain embodiments identify a correct structured reading-order sequence of text segments extracted from a file. A probabilistic language model is generated from a large text corpus to comprise observed word sequence patterns for a given language. The language model measures whether splicing together a first text segment with another continuation text segment results in a phrase that is more likely than a phrase resulting from splicing together the first text segment with other continuation text segments. Sets of text segments, which include a first set with a first text segment and a first continuation text segment as well as a second set with the first text segment and a second continuation text segment, are provided to the probabilistic model. A score indicative of a likelihood of the set providing a correct structured reading-order sequence is obtained for each set of text segments.

  • Patent number: 10325012
    Abstract: In one set of embodiments, a web document is associated with a style sheet that can include style rules, which provide details about how the document is to be presented and formatted by, for example, a web browser. A reduced set of style rules is determined based upon contents of the web document and style sheet. Reducing the size of the style sheet is desirable, e.g., to increase communication and processing efficiency when the style sheet is sent with the document in an e-mail message. The reduced set of style rules can include rules that are referenced by user interface components present in the document, and can exclude rules that are not referenced by the document, or are incompatible with or not applicable to e-mail. The reduced set of style rules can be embedded in an e-mail message or other communication in place of the original style sheet.

  • Patent number: 10241986
    Abstract: A tag management system can implement a combined synchronous and asynchronous tag-loading scheme. In an embodiment of this scheme, a synchronous tag may be included at the top of or near the top of a content page. This synchronous tag can hide one or more page elements that are to be modified by a subsequent asynchronous personalization tag. Subsequently, the asynchronous personalization tag can update the page element and then cause the page element to be displayed. As a result, flicker between the old and new page elements can be reduced or avoided.

  • Patent number: 10229094
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for dynamically simulating a structured document. A visual layout of a presentation of a structured document is determined in accordance with a style property associated with and specific to a first type of media device. The laid out structured document including the style property specific to the first type of media device is sent to a web browser executing on a second type of media device for rendering on the second type of media device. The first type of media device has a different display requirement than the second type of media device. The style property may be encoded in a set of presentation semantics. A media-dependent style rule encoded in the set of presentation semantics may be used to determine that the display requirement of the first type of media device satisfies the media-dependent style rule.

  • Patent number: 10007402
    Abstract: In order to render content in a manner most responsive to a user's interest, a computer system (e.g., an eBook reader device) is configured to render content. Specifically, the computer system is configured to receive a request to display a page of displayable content that includes at least one displayable object having original dimensions that exceed a viewable area on a display screen. Thus, a user launching an eBook application on a computer device may immediately access a table of contents requiring a display area that is larger than the present eBook application. The computer system determines whether an end-user experience is better served by displaying a first reduced-size representation comprising a non-interactive thumbnail image of the displayable object or a second reduced-size representation comprising a user-interactive object corresponding to the displayable object.
