  • Patent number: 11297393
    Abstract: A machine detects a set of first control operations and, in response, causes a display screen to present a graphical interface in which a central window suggests first content by presenting a first preview and a first identifier superimposed on the first preview. The machine then detects a second control operation that indicates dismissal of the first content. In response to the second control operation, the machine causes the display screen to present a transition to an interest-improved version of the graphical interface. The transition includes sliding the first preview, the first identifier, a second preview, and a second identifier together in a shared direction and at a shared speed within the central window. The second preview and the second identifier correspond to second content. In the interest-improved version of the graphical interface, the central window suggests the second content by presenting the second preview and the second identifier.

    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, non-transitory computer-readable media, and methods for predicting and prefetching relevant thumbnails from remote servers to client devices based on a dynamic determination of file display criteria. For example, a thumbnail prefetching system utilizes previous thumbnail requests to predict a file directory sort order and determine thumbnails the operating system at the client device will next request. The thumbnail prefetching system can then prefetch the thumbnails prior to the operating system at the client device making thumbnail requests for the files. Thus, when the operating system does request thumbnails for the pertinent files, the thumbnail prefetching system can provide the thumbnails efficiently and quickly while leaving thumbnails for other (unrequested) files stored at the remote server (and not downloaded to the client device).

  • Patent number: 10839082
    Abstract: A data model extends or supplements an entity/resource association to include a “quality” of that association, where the quality is defined by an ordered set of relative values/characteristics. In an example scenario, an entity/resource association is augmented to include a quality characteristic that is defined by a tuple that is preferably an ordered set of relative values. The number of values and their designations in the data model will depend on nature of the underlying entity/resource association. When entity/resource associations are annotated to include relative quality values in this manner, much more useful comparisons of apparently similar entity/resource associations may be carried out.

  • Patent number: 10783215
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for displaying images and contextually relevant content on a digital content platform, such as a web page. In one embodiment, for example, the systems and methods include receiving a request for content call from an end-user device, identifying content that is contextually relevant to the image, delivering the content to the end-user device, and delivering a computer-readable instruction that causes the end-user device to perform an animation that displays the content in a spatial relationship with respect to the image as originally published. The spatial relationship is defined such that the content appears to be displayed on a backside of the image.

  • Patent number: 10754284
    Abstract: A control apparatus includes a processor and a memory to control a system having an image forming apparatus and a sheet discharge apparatus. Executing a memory store program causes the control apparatus to receive configuration information of the system and generate a system configuration image, receive stacking state information and generate a sheet bundle image, display a screen, receive job identification information of an image forming job of sheets to be picked up, and display a thumbnail image. The stacking state information includes a stacking amount of sheets stacked on a sheet stacking tray. The sheet bundle image represents the sheets stacked on a sheet stacking tray based on the stacking state information. The system configuration image and the sheet bundle image are combined in the screen. The thumbnail image is based on receiving the job identification information.

  • Patent number: 10740425
    Abstract: A content administration system receives user identification information from a terminal device via the Internet. The content administration system then specifies content administration information storage means corresponding to the received user identification information. The content administration system acquires object path information correlated to sharing permission information from a content administration information storage means of another unspecified user. The content administration system then acquires an icon image from the icon image storage means. The content administration system then makes display control information for the content administration screen containing the icon leading to the object based on the acquired icon image and the acquired object path information. The content administration system transmits the made display control information to the terminal device via the Internet.

  • Patent number: 10708210
    Abstract: A server maintains a multi-user gallery of ephemeral messages. Ephemeral messages are posted to the gallery by multiple different users for online viewing via a single, common gallery. In response to a gallery view request from any recipient device, the ephemeral messages in the multi-user are displayed on the requesting device in automated sequence, each message being displayed for a respective display duration before display of the next message in the gallery. Each ephemeral message is removed from the gallery, thus being unavailable, for viewing upon request, at expiry of a respective corresponding message availability parameter. An account administration interface is provided to enable multiple users to post to the multi-user gallery as a single organizational or celebrity account.
