  • Patent number: 11574634
    Abstract: Dynamic interfacing with applications is provided. For example, a system receives a first input audio signal. The system processes, via a natural language processing technique, the first input audio signal to identify an application. The system activates the application for execution on the client computing device. The application declares a function the application is configured to perform. The system modifies the natural language processing technique responsive to the function declared by the application. The system receives a second input audio signal. The system processes, via the modified natural language processing technique, the second input audio signal to detect one or more parameters. The system determines that the one or more parameters are compatible for input into an input field of the application. The system generates an action data structure for the application. The system inputs the action data structure into the application, which executes the action data structure.

  • Patent number: 11068285
    Abstract: In some embodiments, interaction data associated with user interactions with a user interface of an interactive computing environment is identified, and goal clusters of the interaction data are computed based on sequences of the user interactions and performing inverse reinforcement learning on the goal clusters to return rewards and policies. Further, likelihood values of additional sequences of user interactions falling within the goal clusters are computed based on the policies corresponding to each of the goal clusters and assigning the additional sequences to the goal clusters with greatest likelihood values. Computing interface experience metrics of the additional sequences are computed using the rewards and the policies corresponding to the goal clusters of the additional sequences and transmitting the interface experience metrics to the online platform. The interface experience metrics are usable for changing arrangements of interface elements to improve the interface experience metrics.

  • Patent number: 10963274
    Abstract: There is disclosed a dynamic help system which can change and automatically update itself with relevant information based upon a user's needs to assist users in operating functions of a computer. The dynamic help system can create multiple types of pages that can seamlessly be integrated into a user interface already running on a computer. The dynamic help system may parse RAF or HTML-like user interface pages and components to create a corresponding help system also based upon RAF or HTML-like functions and layout. As a part of that process, snapshots of actual user interface components may be placed within the help system and used for navigation back to the user interface. The dynamic help system may be used by the user to obtain information and further interact with the user interface.

  • Patent number: 10956483
    Abstract: A first selectable slide presentation priority level assigned to a slide presentation is determined responsive to detecting an indication from a user using an input device to start the slide presentation. Individual slides of the slide presentation determined to include an assigned individual slide priority level equal to or higher than the assigned first selectable slide presentation priority level are selectively presented. For each presented slide, any additional content-dependent slides with assigned individual slide priority levels lower than the assigned first selectable slide presentation priority level that are determined, according to inter-slide content dependency data, to include a user-assigned inter-slide content dependency upon content of the presented slide are selectively presented.
