  • Patent number: 10802697
    Abstract: A graphical user interface and a range slider are provided. Each of a first and second slider thumb is positioned at a respective location along a slider track, and associated with a corresponding value along the slider track. User interaction is detected and identified to include at least one of a tap or a drag. A hardware processor responds to the user interaction by processing a value representing the tap or the drag to determine a location along the slider track of the user interaction. The processor identifies the interaction as being with one of the first and second slider thumbs, and repositions the identified one slider thumb to the determined location along the slider track. In addition, a graphical selection overlay is on the selected slider thumb, and by determining a slider track value associated with the repositioned location of the selected one slider thumb along the slider track.

  • Patent number: 10733198
    Abstract: A data preprocessing system builds transformation scripts for preprocessing datasets for processing by a data analysis system. The data preprocessing system presents various representations of data of a dataset including visual representations, textual representations, or structural representations. The data preprocessing system receives selections of attributes or values based on these representations. The data preprocessing system generates recommendations of transformations based on the attributes or values selected. The data preprocessing system builds a transformation script based on the recommendations of the transformations. The transformation script can be used for preprocessing the dataset for analysis by a data analysis system.

    Abstract: A system for determining scroll direction intent may include one or more processors and a memory. The one or more processors may receive first and second ordered pairs of coordinates of a scroll event. The one or more processors may construct a square that has a first vertex at the first ordered pair of coordinates and an opposite vertex at a third ordered pair of coordinates for which each coordinate has an absolute value that is equal to a maximum absolute coordinate value of the second ordered pair of coordinates, where the signs of the coordinates of the third ordered pair are equivalent to the signs of the corresponding coordinates of the second ordered pair. The one or more processors may determine an intended scroll direction of the scroll event based at least partially on the constructed square and the first and second ordered pair of coordinates.
