  • Publication number: 20200319691
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing power and data usage in a mobile electronic communications device entail detecting a sleep state of a user of the device, and entering an idle mode when the sleep state of the user is deep sleep, wherein the idle mode restricts device CPU and network activities to exclude user-centric operations. When the sleep state of the user changes from the deep sleep state, the device exits the idle mode and enters an operative state to execute any pending user-centric operations.

  • Patent number: 10797356
    Abstract: A battery can include an anode-electrolyte-cathode stack and a phase-change material. The anode-electrolyte-cathode stack can include at least one anode, at least one cathode, and an electrolyte which more directly interacts with each of the at least one anode and the at least one cathode, wherein the at least one anode electrically interacts with the at least one cathode via the electrolyte. The phase-change material can change phase to actuate an interference with an electrochemistry of the anode-electrolyte-cathode stack proximate an area where a localized temperature exceeds a predefined phase change threshold, the interference with the electrochemistry, which decreases current generation within the anode-electrolyte-cathode stack, can be adapted to occur prior to reaching a temperature that can create a failure within the anode-electrolyte-cathode stack.

  • Patent number: 10795415
    Abstract: A foldable display has multiple layers, including at least a display layer that creates the display that users see when looking at the foldable display and a stiff support layer that provides the display layer with support despite the foldable nature of the display. An adhesive layer binds the display layer to the stiff support layer. The stiff support layer has a stiffness that is at least six times greater than the stiffness of the adhesive layer and at least six times greater than the stiffness of the display layer. Given the foldable nature of the display, there is typically a hinge system below part of the display. In situations in which pressure is applied to the foldable display (e.g., by a user's finger or stylus), the stiffness of the stiff support layer prevents the display from being damaged despite the presence of the hinge system.

  • Publication number: 20200310523
    Abstract: Systems and methods for user request detection and execution in a mobile electronic communications device entail using a low power request detection module in conjunction with a high power request detection module. The low power request detection module detects speech, determines that the detected speech is that of an authorized user and determines that the speech contains a request. The low power request detection module then awakens the high power request detection module from idle, which then determines with a higher confidence threshold that the speech of the authorized user contains a request and the interprets and executes the request.

  • Publication number: 20200302310
    Abstract: In aspects of generating action suggestions based on a change in user mood, a computing device implements an action generation module that generates action suggestions. The action generation module analyzes sensor data from sensors to determine a current user state associated with a user. The action generation module also analyzes environment data received from Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices to determine a current environment context associated with the user. The action generation module can detect a change in a user mood based on a comparison of the current user state with user history data that includes user state parameters and environment context parameters that indicate the user mood. The action generation module can analyze the user history data to determine the user state parameters and/or the environment context parameters that correlate to the change in the user mood, and generate an action suggestion that is intended to modify the current user state.

  • Patent number: 10785716
    Abstract: In aspects of wireless connectivity information for a mobile device, a mobile device includes a connectivity module that determines that the mobile device is to wirelessly connect to a network. The connectivity module of the mobile device queries for a host device to provide wireless connectivity information, such as via a direct device-to-device query between the mobile device and the host device. The mobile device receives a query response from the host device, and the connectivity module obtains wireless connectivity information from the query response. The connectivity module utilizes the connectivity information to perform a focused scan for a network, such as a network identified in the query response. In response to detecting the network based on the focused scan, the connectivity module interacts with the network to establish a wireless connection between the mobile device and the network.

  • Publication number: 20200295447
    Abstract: Multiple feed, front-shielded, coplanar waveguide, direct-fed, cavity-backed slot antennas are described. Various implementations form an antenna unit capable of millimeter waveform and/or microwave waveform transmissions. An antenna comprises a conductive plate that includes an aperture. The aperture has a shape that extends along an axis that bisects the aperture into first and second bisected portions, the first bisected portion having a first geometry type, and the second portion having a second geometry type that is a bilateral symmetry shape type of the first geometry type. In implementations, the aperture is configured to radiate waveforms within a frequency range from about between 600 Megahertz (MHz) to 72 Gigahertz (GHz) by applying multiple signal feeds to the conductive plate.

  • Publication number: 20200295465
    Abstract: Front-shielded, coplanar waveguide, direct-fed, cavity-backed slot antennas are described. Various implementations form an antenna unit capable of millimeter waveform and/or microwave waveform transmissions. A bottom shielding structure of the antenna unit defines a cavity, where various implementations include one or more dampening structures within the cavity. Some implementations includes a slot antenna within the cavity defined by the bottom shielding structure, such as a coplanar waveguide (CPW) direct-fed slot antenna, to form a cavity-backed slot antenna. Some implementations connect a top shielding structure to the bottom shielding structure to encase the slot antenna. In one or more implementations, the top shielding structure includes aperture windows to allow waveforms within a frequency range from about between 600 Megahertz (MHz) to 72 Gigahertz (GHz) and radiated by the slot antenna to radiate outward from the antenna unit.

  • Publication number: 20200286475
    Abstract: A system receives a first voice input from a first user, such as a baby or a person who has had a stroke. Although the first user intends to communicate a particular meaning, the first voice input is not in a language that is known to the system and thus the system does not know the particular meaning that the first user intended. After receiving the first voice input, a second voice input is received from a second user. This second voice input is in a language that is known to the system. The system determines a meaning of the second voice input, associates this meaning with the first voice input, and uses this association to train a machine learning system. This machine learning system is used to attempt to understand the meaning of subsequent voice inputs received from the first user.
