  • Patent number: 11301125
    Abstract: Techniques are described for performing inter-object interactions between vector objects to adjust the appearance of one vector object based on another vector object. For example, a vector object interaction framework may be implemented in which designers drag a vector object onto another vector object to trigger an interaction between the objects. Candidate interactions between pairs of object types may be pre-defined and stored in a suitable data structure. Thus, when one vector object is dragged onto a recipient vector object and a pause is detected, the object types for the dragged and recipient objects may be determined, and a corresponding set of candidate interactions for the pair of object types may be accessed, ranked, simulated, and/or presented as selectable previews. As such, one of the candidate interactions may be selected and executed to form one or more output vector objects that may be saved, exported, modified, and/or reused.

  • Patent number: 11158105
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described herein for improved techniques for consuming and interacting with media content. Specifically, the media guidance application may generate holographic animations that move from a holographic structure from which a user has selected a media asset and direct the user to a display device capable of presenting the media asset. For example, in response to a user selecting a baseball movie from a holographic bookcase, the media guidance application may generate for display a holographic baseball that is “thrown” from the bookcase to a television that will present the baseball movie.

  • Patent number: 11138203
    Abstract: A non-transitory processor-readable medium stores code that, when executed by a processor, causes the processor to receive a first file that is in a first file format and includes taxonomy data of a first marketplace; define a second file that is in a template file format and includes the taxonomy data of the first marketplace; and send the second file to a taxonomy platform such that inventory data is mapped to a taxonomy of the first marketplace. The code further causes the processor to receive a third file that is in a second file format and includes taxonomy data of a second marketplace; define a fourth file that is in the template file format and includes the taxonomy data of the second marketplace; and send the fourth file to the taxonomy platform such that the inventory data is mapped to a taxonomy of the second marketplace.

  • Patent number: 11132738
    Abstract: The invention provides a refrigerator system, a method and a software program product for controlling and/or advising a diet for a user. The refrigerator system has a refrigerator including a light and a camera that captures an image of contents of the refrigerator. The image is processed by a graphics processing unit (GPU) integrated with the refrigerator and/or a cloud server. The GPU analyses the image to recognise a quantity, a quality, and/or a kind of food articles and/or food packages such as, vegetables, fruits, beverages, etc. A central processing unit (CPU)/GPU of the refrigerator provides diet plans, recipe recommendations, identifies grocery replenishment requirements, updates and shares shopping lists with food delivery agents, etc., based on the analysis of the refrigerator contents. The invention helps in minimizing food wastage, expanding meal options considering expiry dates, and maximizing benefits of a healthy diet by recommending and controlling the user's diet.

  • Patent number: 11106691
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards a graphical user interface identify locations within event records with splittable timestamp information. A display of event records is provided using any of a variety of formats. A splittable timestamp selector allows a user to select one or more locations within event records as having time related information that may be split across the one or more locations, including, information based on date, time of day, day of the week, or other time information. Any of a plurality of mechanisms is used to associate the selected locations with the split timestamp information, including tags, labels, or header information within the event records. In other embodiments, a separate table, list, index, or the like may be generated that associates the selected locations with the split timestamp information. The split timestamp information may be used within extraction rules for selecting subsets or the event records.

  • Patent number: 11102224
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a data analysis system that may automatically generate memory-efficient clustered data structures, automatically analyze those clustered data structures, automatically tag and group those clustered data structures, and provide results of the automated analysis and grouping in an optimized way to an analyst. The automated analysis of the clustered data structures (also referred to herein as data clusters) may include an automated application of various criteria or rules so as to generate a tiled display of the groups of related data clusters such that the analyst may quickly and efficiently evaluate the groups of data clusters. In particular, the groups of data clusters may be dynamically re-grouped and/or filtered in an interactive user interface so as to enable an analyst to quickly navigate among information associated with various groups of data clusters and efficiently evaluate those data clusters in the context of, for example, a fraud investigation.

  • Patent number: 11093069
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for touch event processing are provided. A touch input is received in a designated region of a touchscreen display of the electronic device. The touch input is stored in a memory of the electronic device without providing the touch input as input to an application of the electronic device, upon reception of the touch input in the designated region. A drag input is received on the touch screen display as a continuation of the touch input. A processor of the electronic device determines the touch input and the drag input as input for the application upon the drag input exceeding a threshold.

  • Patent number: 11057464
    Abstract: A computing system may determine that first data was copied from a first application to a buffer of a first computing environment, and that the first data was received by a second application in a second computing environment. The computing system may identify second data copied from the first application to the buffer and, in response to the second data being copied from the first application to the buffer and based at least in part on the second application having received the first data, may cause the second data to be transferred from the buffer to the second computing environment. The computing system may further evaluate the second data to determine whether it includes potentially private information, and may cause the second data to be transferred to the second computing environment based at least in part on the second data being free of potentially private information.
