  • Patent number: 11495219
    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed for interacting with a virtual assistant to request updates associated with one or more events and/or perform actions. According to some examples, a user may use their voice to interact with a virtual assistant to receive updates relating to events occurring during a certain period of time. For example, a user may request an update associated with one or more events occurring that day. The system may access data sources (e.g., calendar services, email services, etc.) to obtain data associated with the events, tag the events according to one or more conditions indicated by the data, and/or rank the events according to the tags. In addition, to resolve conditions associated with the events, the virtual assistant may also include options in the update to perform certain actions and/or to provide response data. The virtual assistant may generate the update and audibly provide the update to the user.

  • Patent number: 11321191
    Abstract: A information management system allows a user to search through a secondary copy of data, such as a back up, archive, or snapshot without first retrieving the secondary copy of data. Instead, the system constructs lightweight data that can be displayed to a user as a representation of the search results. Lightweight data may include metadata or other information that identifies data included in the secondary copy of data. The lightweight data may be perceived as being the secondary copy of data and allow a user to browse through search results. Once the user identifies a search result that is of interest, information in the lightweight data can be used to retrieve the secondary copy of data. Because lightweight data may have a smaller file size than the file size of the secondary copy of data, the latency of performing a search may be reduced.

  • Patent number: 11175813
    Abstract: A screen control method, an apparatus, a device and a computer readable storage medium are provided. A display interface of a display screen includes a main display interface and a secondary display interface. The method includes: receiving a component call request sent by a user; switching the main display interface to the secondary display interface according to the component call request; and displaying preset component content on the secondary display interface according to a preset component display mode. Thus, the component content preset by the user can be uniformly displayed on the secondary display interface, which thus improves the user stickiness, makes the presented content more personalized and more compatible with the user's needs, thereby improving the user experience.

  • Patent number: 11157463
    Abstract: Among other things, there are two or more data sets. Each of the data sets contains data that can be interpreted as records each having data values for data fields. Each of the data sets contains at least some data that is related to data in at least one of the other data sets. The data in different data sets is organized or expressed possibly differently. Each of the data sets is susceptible to a definition of a key for the records of the data set. The data sets are characterized by repetitions of at least one of (a) records, (b) portions of keys, or (c) instances of values for data fields. Information about at least one of the repetitions is provided to a user.

  • Patent number: 11061906
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a non-transitory machine-readable medium that stores a program. The program receives from a client device a request for data stored in a database categorized based on a hierarchical dimension. The hierarchical dimension is configured to store values from a plurality of values organized in a hierarchy comprising a plurality of levels. The program further generates an intermediary data structure by combining a first set of the data stored in the database and a second set of data based on a level in the hierarchy. The program also generates results for the request by aggregating the data in the intermediary data structure based on the level in the hierarchy. The program further provides the results for the request to the client device.

  • Patent number: 11029836
    Abstract: Maintaining an application for deployment across platforms requires significant engineering effort and an expanded code base, especially when dealing with different input types from the host platforms. To reduce the computational expenses and improve the standardization of the user interface, systems and methods are provided to recognize gestures in a platform agnostic code architecture, which may be deployed on multiple platforms with different input and output methodologies to provide a consistent user experience with a smaller code base to install on those platforms and to maintain. Individual platforms may tailor the size of the architecture to meet their deployment needs and the architecture may be updated independently of the client logic of various applications.

  • Patent number: 11029806
    Abstract: A graphical user interface generates a control pane and a diagram pane. The control pane graphically depicts control objects that are each associated with a different viewpoint of digital products. The diagram pane displays graphical representations based upon a user-selected control object in the control pane. In use, a hierarchical view of digital products is presented in the diagram pane. A user can select a digital product from the hierarchical view, and then graphically navigate the digital product, whereby the graphical user interface presents aspects of the digital product, represented as nodes and interconnecting lines in different views defined by the viewpoint associated with user-selected control objects available in the control pane.
