  • Patent number: 9891804
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a user interface including an image panel for displaying a field of view corresponding to an image, or a portion of an image, of a biological specimen, and a biomarker panel for displaying thumbnail images for simultaneously viewing different aspects of a region within the field of view. Upon selection or update of the selected region of the field of view, the thumbnail images may be accordingly updated automatically to display the newly selected region. The image panel may include an interest region selection component for delineating a region within the field of view. The interest region selection component may be overlaid over a portion of the field of view displayed in the image panel, and may be used by a user to select or update the region within the field of view displayed in the biomarker panel. Images of interest may be saved to an electronic record.

  • Patent number: 9875284
    Abstract: The present technology relates to methods, systems and computer program products for displaying search completion results. A chalkboard interface having search completion results can be displayed in response to inputs entered in a search field of a webpage. One or more search completion options, such as predicted search queries, can be generated based at least on the inputs. The search completion options and corresponding search results can be displayed in the chalkboard interface. If further inputs are entered in the search field, the search completion options are modified, resulting in a dynamic chalkboard interface that displays search completion options with corresponding search results that change with each keystroke or input inputted at the search field. The chalkboard interface can be superimposed over the webpage, except for the search field, so that as inputs are entered in the search field, the search completion options and search results are accordingly modified.

  • Patent number: 9865033
    Abstract: The display of images, such as panoramic images, in a limited display space can be aided through the use of motion-based control, whereby a user can rotate and/or translate a computing device in order to view different portions of the image, including translating or zooming within the image. Sensors can be used to determine the motion for adjusting the display. The same or other sensors can also assist a user in capturing such an image. For example, a compass can determine the relative orientation of the device and a gyroscope can determine rotation of the device, to determine an appropriate path of motion for the capture and any deviation from that path. The user can be provided with information enabling the user to follow the path with an appropriate device orientation.

  • Patent number: 9805269
    Abstract: Techniques are described for analyzing a video for memorability, identifying content features of the video that are likely to be memorable, and scoring specific content features within the video for memorability. The techniques can be optionally applied to selected features in the video, thus improving the memorability of the selected features. The features may be organic features of the originally captured video or add-in features provided using an editing tool. The memorability of video features, text features, or both can be improved by analyzing the effects of applying different styles or edits (e.g., sepia tone, image sharpen, image blur, annotation, addition of object) to the content features or to the video in general. Recommendations can then be provided regarding memorability score caused by application of the image styles to the video features.
