  • Patent number: 11941819
    Abstract: A neural network may be used to determine corner points of a skewed polygon (e.g., as displacement values to anchor box corner points) that accurately delineate a region in an image that defines a parking space. Further, the neural network may output confidence values predicting likelihoods that corner points of an anchor box correspond to an entrance to the parking spot. The confidence values may be used to select a subset of the corner points of the anchor box and/or skewed polygon in order to define the entrance to the parking spot. A minimum aggregate distance between corner points of a skewed polygon predicted using the CNN(s) and ground truth corner points of a parking spot may be used simplify a determination as to whether an anchor box should be used as a positive sample for training.

  • Patent number: 11570203
    Abstract: An account protection service to prevent user login or other protected endpoint request abuse. In one embodiment, the service collects user recognition data, preferably for each login attempt (e.g. data about the connection, session, and other relevant context), and it constructs a true user profile for each such user over time, preferably using the recognition data from successful logins. The profile evolves as additional recognition data is collected from successful logins. The profile is a model of what the user “looks like” to the system. For a subsequent login attempt, the system then calculates a true user score. This score represents how well the current user recognition data matches the model represented by the true user profile. The user recognition service is used to drive policy decisions and enforcement capabilities. Preferably, user recognition works in association with bot detection in a combined solution.

  • Patent number: 10936173
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a novel user interface (UI) tool that is a unified slider control, which includes multiple sliders that slide along a region. The region is a straight line in some embodiments, while it is an angular arc in other embodiments. In some embodiments, the unified slider control is used in a media editing application to allow a user to modify several different properties of the image by moving several different sliders along the region. Each slider is associated with a property of the image. A position of the slider in the region corresponds to a value of the property associated with the slider.

  • Patent number: 10887308
    Abstract: A method of presenting an interactive user interface includes presenting member data within a social network interface, the member data being presented at a fixed position within the social network interface. A plurality of posts, arranged in a temporal order or according to category, are also presented within the social network interface. Further, a privacy bar interface element is presented at a first position within the social network interface. An action, as applied to a touch display of a client device, is detected, the action being to move the privacy bar interface element from the first position to a second position relative to the plurality of posts within the social network interface, and to divide the plurality of posts within the social network interface into a first subset of posts and a second subset of posts.

  • Patent number: 10725624
    Abstract: The present aspects relate to swift movement between multiple pages or views. Electronic devices may be limited in readily moving between two or more pages or views within an application process. For example, to move between multiple pages or views, an electronic device may receive a single input for movement between one page or view and another page or view. However, the present aspects enable an electronic device to move between two or more pages in response to receiving a single input representing, for instance, a contact on a touch-sensitive surface of the electronic device.

  • Patent number: 10630851
    Abstract: A display/input device includes a touch screen which accepts an operation of moving a slider image on a bar image in an extension direction, in which the bar image extends, a controller, and a storage which stores therein an allowable range. In performing range limiting processing, the controller makes the touch screen display the bar image such that, of the bar image, an in-range region, which corresponds to the allowable range, and an out-of-range region, which is a region other than the in-range region, are displayed in different display fashions, and limits a movable range of the slider image to a range from one end to an other end of the in-range region which are opposite from each other in the extension direction.

  • Patent number: 10402075
    Abstract: Systems and methods for data visualization are disclosed. An example method includes: detecting a first movement of a first User Interface (UI) element on a slider bar; determining that the first UI element is located within an active portion of the slider bar. The active portion comprises at least a sub-portion of the slider bar. The method also includes, determining that a second UI element is located within the active portion of the slider bar; determining a relative position of the first UI element to the second UI element; and assigning transaction priorities to a first entity identified by the first UI element and to a second entity identified by the second UI element based on the relative position. The method optionally includes causing a transaction involving the first entity and the second entity to be executed based on the transaction priorities.

  • Patent number: 10061476
    Abstract: Systems and methods for content identification, selection, organization and distribution are described. Content is identified or represented by one or more moods conveyed by the content to users. Once moods are identified for the content, the content can be searched based on those moods using ranges or sensory perception. Range-based searches are performed by looking for content having corresponding ranges and ranked based on the level of correspondence. Sensory mood searches are based on a user's association with the sensory information provided. Negative limitations may be used to exclude certain content that might otherwise be ranked based on the level of correspondence. Different types of content may be presented to users through a variety of different interfaces that are appropriate for the content. Distribution of content may be structured based on the moods associated with the content.
