  • Patent number: 11137985
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for automatically generating stencils for content of a user interface (UI) to be rendered. A computer system receives information specifying content of a user interface (UI) to be rendered. Based on this information, the computer system identifies one or more bounding regions of content within the UI, including analyzing metadata and a rendered version of the UI. The computer system then automatically generates, one or more UI stencils based on the identified bounding regions, that are displayable as progress indicators prior to rendering corresponding UI content. Once it has generated the stencils, the computer system stores information specifying the one or more UI stencils for use in the UI. Automatically generating stencils for UIs may advantageously reduce the time gap from development to deployment of these UIs while improving their perceived performance and, by extension, improving user experience.

  • Patent number: 10915701
    Abstract: Caption association techniques as part of digital content creation by a computing device are described. The computing device is configured to extract text features and bounding boxes from an input document. These text features and bounding boxes are processed to reduce a number of possible search spaces. The processing may involve generating and utilizing a language model that captures the semantic meaning of the text features to identify and filter static text, and may involve identifying and filtering inline captions. A number of bounding boxes are identified for a potential caption. The potential caption and corresponding identified bounding boxes are concatenated into a vector. The concatenated vector is used to identify relationships among the bounding boxes to determine a single bounding box associated with the caption. The determined association is utilized to generate an output digital document that includes a structured association between the caption and a data entry field.

  • Patent number: 10878186
    Abstract: The embodiments present a new class of content masking attacks against the Portable Document Format (PDF) standard. The attacks cause documents to appear different than the underlying content extracted from the documents by information-based services. The first attack allows academic paper writers and reviewers to collude via subverting the automatic reviewer assignment systems in current use by academic conferences. The second attack renders plagiarism detection software ineffective, targeting specific small plagiarism similarity scores to appear natural and evade detection. The final attack places masked content into the indexes for various search engines, which renders as information entirely different from the keywords used to locate it. The final attack enables spam, profane, or possibly illegal content to go unnoticed by these search engines but still be returned in search results.
