  • Patent number: 11989404
    Abstract: Various implementations disclosed herein include devices, systems, and methods that provide extended reality (XR) environments that include virtual content anchored to particular times and/or within physical environments. In some implementations, an XR environment is provided based on virtual content items (e.g., representing memories or past events) that are anchored to both physical locations and particular times along a timeline. This may involve selecting and providing virtual content items (e.g., representing memories) based on user input that selects a particular time, e.g., day, time, date/time range, etc. The content can include real and/or virtual content representing objects and/or people and may be the user's own private memories, memories shared by friends, or selected public memories.

  • Patent number: 11983637
    Abstract: Techniques related to electronic meeting intelligence are disclosed. An apparatus receives audio/video data including first meeting content data for an electronic meeting that includes multiple participants. The apparatus extracts the first meeting content data from the audio/video data. The apparatus generates meeting content metadata based on analyzing the first meeting content data. The apparatus includes the meeting content metadata in a report of the electronic meeting. If the apparatus determines that the audio/video data includes a cue for the apparatus to intervene in the electronic meeting, the apparatus generates intervention data including second meeting content data that is different from the first meeting content data. During the electronic meeting, the apparatus sends the intervention data to one or more nodes associated with at least one participant of the multiple participants.

    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for driving multiple user interfaces using a backend view controller. A view interface system that is capable of displaying multiple user interfaces of different view formats may receive a data set request to display a data set in a particular view format. The view interface system may then transmit, to the backend view controller, the data set request and receive an indication that the data set is exposed by the backend view controller. Based on the indication, the view interface system may perform data binding of the data set to interface objects associated with the view format to form a user interface based on the view format and display the user interface.

  • Patent number: 11199955
    Abstract: Methods and systems for enhanced techniques for building user interfaces. An example method includes presenting a builder user interface to create a consumer user interface. The builder user interface receives information usable to filter data objects associated with a data object type. The information includes a variable associated with a property indicated by the data object type and the variable is associated with a first user interface element of the consumer user interface. An association between a second user interface element included in the consumer user interface and presentation of information generated based on data objects is received. Adjustment of the first user interface element causes filtering of the data objects via adjustment of the variable updating of the information. Access to the consumer user interface is enabled.

    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system includes a processor(s) utilizing the image capture device to track eye movements of a user interacting with a display communicatively coupled to the one or more processors, the image capture device continuously collecting image data. The processor(s) determines, based on analyzing the collected image data, a probability of whether a user may be experiencing a vision-related issue. Based on the probability being within a given pre-determined range, the processor(s) identifies the vision-related issue experienced by the user. The processor(s) generates, based on the vision-related issue, a two dimensional visual exercise to address the vision-related issue for performance by the user. The processor(s) deploys a graphical user interface to the display, where the graphical user interface comprises the visual exercise. The processor(s) provides the visual exercise to the user via the graphical user interface.
