  • Patent number: 11411909
    Abstract: A message treatment process executed by a user's terminal when a message is being drafted is disclosed. The terminal has access to a corpus of messages containing at least one message sent by that user to at least one recipient user. In one aspect, at least one part of the message drafted by the user is retrieved. Concerning at least one message in the corpus, a semantic similarity score is calculated with a view to match at least part of the draft message with one message at least in the predetermined corpus of messages. At least one message is selected in the corpus of messages, based on the semantic similarity score calculated for a least one message in the corpus, then at least part of a previously received reply to at least one selected message is replicated.

  • Patent number: 11412026
    Abstract: A method enables a plurality of users having communication terminals to communicate via a virtual communication space provided by a communication server on a communication network. The method includes configuring a server application so as to create a virtual communication space for a determined group of users. The virtual space provides a plurality of distinct communication modes referred to as “activities”, each activity relating to at least one associated multimedia content, referred to as “activity content” that is shared by the users of the group. Each activity is performed by determined actions that can be triggered by any of the users of the group. The actions includes at least creating, modifying, or deleting a given activity content. Action requests relating to an activity under consideration and coming from the terminals of the users of the group are processed in a sequential manner in the order of their arrival.

  • Patent number: 11411680
    Abstract: A method for transmitting successive messages forming a frame, implemented by a telecommunications system with M sources (S1, . . . , SM), possibly L relays (R1, . . . , RL) and a destination, M?2, L?0. The method implements a HARQ mechanism and includes: transmitting, from the destination to the nodes (R1, R2, . . . , RL+M), a control message indicating its set (SD,t?1) of correctly decoded source messages; determining, by each node (R1, R2, . . . , RL+M), whether at least one message from its set of correctly decoded source messages does not belong to the set of source messages correctly decoded by the destination; and transmitting a binary indicator by a node (R1, R2, . . . , RL+M) to the destination indicating the result of the determination.

  • Patent number: 11398869
    Abstract: A device for coherently detecting data in an optical signal, called a useful signal, received over a first single-mode optical fibre. The device includes: a second single-mode optical fibre that receives an oscillation optical signal; a polarization-managing device that receives as input either, in a first case, the oscillation optical signal, or, in a second case, the useful signal, and that delivers as output two separate signals, over two single-mode optical guides. The coherently detecting device is configured so that a set of the three signals, which consists of the two separate signals and of either, in the first case, the useful signal, or, in the second case, the oscillation signal, is presented to a single photodiode.

  • Patent number: 11394964
    Abstract: Coding and decoding methods for coding and decoding a coded data stream representing at least one image split into blocks. The method includes, for a current block, determining if the current block is coded according to an intra coding mode or another coding mode, the intra coding mode using an intra prediction mode selected from a group of intra prediction modes, according to an intra prediction mode associated with a neighbouring block of the current block. When coded according to the intra coding mode, an intra prediction mode in the group is determined for the current block, according to an intra prediction mode associated with a previously decoded block of the image. The current block is decoded according to the determined intra prediction mode associated with the current block. When coded according to the other coding mode, the current block is decoded according to the other coding mode.

  • Patent number: 11375553
    Abstract: Wireless communication devices, systems, and methods for establishing latency-critical services. When a mobile station attempts to transmit a packet on a contention-based multiple-access radio channel without a prior reservation of channel resources, the mobile station notifies the base station of its attempt to randomly access the channel. The notification is performed on dedicated channel resources. Upon receipt of the notification of a mobile station's access attempt, the base station can know that a mobile station is the origin of the colliding packets, and can therefore correctly manage the retransmission of packets not received.

  • Patent number: 11368261
    Abstract: A method for transmitting consecutive messages forming a frame for a telecommunication system. The system has M sources, optionally L relays, and a destination, M?2, L?0. An orthogonal multiple-access multiple-relay channel scheme is used between the M sources and the L relays with a maximum number of M+T max time intervals per transmitted frame, including M intervals allocated during a first phase to the consecutive transmission of the M sources and T used intervals for at least one cooperative transmission allocated during a second phase to at least one node selected according to a selection strategy. T used?Tmax. The link adaptation implemented by the destination is slow and maximizes average utility metrics under constraint of an average individual BLER for each source. The utility metrics include average spectral efficiency tied to the strategy for selecting the nodes intervening during the second phase.
