  • Patent number: 11402970
    Abstract: While displaying the dock overlaid on a first user interface of a first application, an electronic device detects a first input selecting a respective application icon in the dock. If the respective application icon corresponds to the first application and the first application is associated with multiple windows, the electronic device displays respective representations of the multiple windows of the first application. If the respective application icon corresponds to the first application and the first application currently is only associated with a single window, the electronic device maintains display of the first user interface of the first application. If the respective application icon corresponds to a second application, the electronic device replaces display of the first user interface of the first application with display of a second user interface of the second application, irrespective of how many windows were associated with the second application at the time.

  • Patent number: 11381605
    Abstract: A private video surveillance service shares an image stream through an asset lock with government agencies in the event of emergency. Nominated agencies establish access credentials at the surveillance service data center. A camera is shared by a facility administrator's selection of permissions on each camera via privileged web-browser or mobile device. Permissions enable selection by static meta data such as type, audio, location, motion, recognition, PTZR, spectrum, and epoch. Video streams of present and past epochs are controlled by ranges of time. A government agency receives an electronic notification from the administrator to operate an agency dedicated application programming interface. A notification may be customized for each responding agency and each event by dynamically generating a link to a secure webserver which records geo-location or network identifiers for validation. Video servers remain controlled by the facility administrator.

  • Patent number: 11328010
    Abstract: Aspects of the technology described herein use acoustic features of a music track to capture information for a recommendation system. The recommendation can work without analyzing label data (e.g., genre, artist) or usage data for a track. For each audio track, a descriptor is generated that can be used to compare the track to other tracks. The comparisons between track descriptors result in a similarity measure that can be used to make a recommendation. In this process, the audio descriptors are used directly to form a track-to-track similarity measure between tracks. By measuring the similarity between a track that a user is known to like and an unknown track, a decision can be made whether to recommend the unknown track to the user.

  • Patent number: 11238365
    Abstract: The present teaching relates to a method and system for validating labels of training data. A first group of data records associated with the training data are received, wherein each of the first group of data records includes a vector having at least one feature and a first label. For each of the first group of data records, a second label is determined based on the at least one feature in accordance with a first model. Thereafter, a loss based on the first label associated with the data record and the second label is obtained, and the data record having an incorrect first label is classified when the loss meets a pre-determined criterion. Upon classifying the data records, a sub-group of the first group of data records is generated, wherein each of the data records included in the sub-group has the incorrect first label.

  • Patent number: 11233760
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments relate to improvements in the design of a messaging inbox. The inbox may display different units or “modules” for providing a user with quick access to different inbox functionalities. Content may be ranked and ordered within a module, and modules may be ranked and ordered with respect to each other. Inter-module ranking may be based on elements such as individual activity and the activity of the messaging service's user base, the value of the module to the messaging service, and offline models. Intra-module ranking may be defined by individual modules (e.g., based on recency, importance to user, affinity, etc.). Intra-module ranking may affect inter-module ranking, such as when individual content in a low-rated module is particularly exciting or pertinent (causing the entire module to receive a higher inter-module ranking).

  • Patent number: 11226939
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward systems, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media for generating and providing a collaborative content management interface for a group of users. For example, the systems described herein can detect user input to add a header within the collaborative content management interface. The systems can cause a file management system to generate a subfolder that corresponds with the new header in the collaborative content management interface. Conversely, the systems can analyze a file database maintained by a file management system and, in response to user input to initiate a collaborative content management system, generate a collaborative content management interface with graphical elements to represent files and headers to represent subfolders.
