  • Patent number: 11412010
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a method in which a processing system obtains physical and social environmental data for a communication device user, and provides content for presentation at the device. First reaction data, obtained via sensors associated with the user, indicate the user's reaction to presentation of the content; the data is analyzed to determine user affinity for the content in a context of the physical and social environments. The content is modified during the presentation; second reaction data is obtained and analyzed to determine a second user affinity for the modified content. If the affinity is enhanced, the modified content is sent to other users' equipment via a social network. Affinity responses regarding the modified content are analyzed, and a set of users is identified as an affinity group; additional content is transmitted to equipment of the affinity group. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11405054
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing dynamic dictionary-based compression and decompression are described herein. A computing device may receive, during a currently running session with a client device, a plurality of messages. The computing device may determine, based on the plurality of messages, one or more frames. The computing device may determine, based on the one or more frames, data samples. The computing device may compress the one or more frames based on a compression dictionary. The computing device may train, during the currently running session, the compression dictionary based on the determined data samples, to create a new compression dictionary. The computing device may determine, during the currently running session and based on receiving additional messages, one or more additional frames. In addition, the computing device may compress the one or more additional frames based on the new compression dictionary.

  • Patent number: 11388249
    Abstract: A system architecture can be used to facilitate communication among applications that are native and/or non-native to an application environment. The system architecture can include a first application environment executed on a client-side computing device. The first application environment can execute software applications that are native thereto. The first application environment can further execute software applications that are native thereto, but which software applications themselves comprise second application environments of types different from the first application environment, and which software applications can therefore execute additional software applications that are non-native to the first application environment. The first application environment can further execute a computation engine that is configured to store and execute instructions received from the first software application, the second software application, or both.

  • Patent number: 11381601
    Abstract: Application programming interface (API) management is provided. The API management comprises defining a number of GraphQL policies and integrating the GraphQL policies into an API assembly, wherein the GraphQL policies number among other API policies at an API gateway. When a query is received from a client, the GraphQL policies are enforced on the query at the API gateway, and the query is modified if it does not comply with the GraphQL policies. The query is then sent to a GraphQL backend server. A response to the query is received from the GraphQL backend server, and the GraphQL policies are enforced on the response at the API gateway, and the response is modified if it does not comply with the GraphQL policies. The response is then sent to the client.

  • Patent number: 11381414
    Abstract: A service management system communicates via wide area network with gateway devices located at respective user premises. The service management system remotely manages delivery of application services, which can be voice controlled, by a gateway, e.g. by selectively activating/deactivating service logic modules in the gateway. The service management system also may selectively provide secure communications and exchange of information among gateway devices and among associated endpoint devices. An exemplary service management system includes a router connected to the network and one or more computer platforms, for implementing management functions. Examples of the functions include a connection manager for controlling system communications with the gateway devices, an authentication manager for authenticating each gateway device and controlling the connection manager and a subscription manager for managing applications services and/or features offered by the gateway devices.

  • Patent number: 11379717
    Abstract: Traditional systems and methods have implemented hand-crafted feature extraction from varying length time series that results in complexity and requires domain knowledge. Building classification models requires large labeled data and is computationally expensive. Embodiments of the present disclosure implement learning models for classification tasks in multi-dimensional time series by performing feature extraction from entity's parameters via unsupervised encoder and build a non-temporal linear classifier model. A fixed-dimensional feature vector is outputted using a pre-trained unsupervised encoder, which acts as off-the shelf feature extractor. Extracted features are concatenated to learn a non-temporal linear classification model and weight is assigned to each extracted feature during learning which helps to determine relevant parameters for each class. Mapping from parameters to target class is considered while constraining the linear model to use only subset of large number of features.

  • Patent number: 11368363
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for an internet of things (IoT) device. In some implementations, the IoT device can select an operating role for the first IoT device in a local network. The operating role may be selected from between an endpoint role and a relay role. The operating role may be dynamically selected by the first IoT device based whether the relay role would enhance connectivity for a client device that is within a wireless range of the first IoT device. The IoT device may participate in a self-organizing network (SON) and may coordinate with other devices in the SON to enhance wireless coverage for the client device based on a position of the client device relative to the one or more IoT devices.

  • Patent number: 11323528
    Abstract: Embodiments described include systems and methods for receiving push notifications for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications. Push notifications may be received by an agent or notification listener provided by a client application of a client device. The listener may receive and display notifications for a large plurality of SaaS applications, regardless of whether the SaaS applications are currently active in a browser of the client device. The listener agent may be lightweight, consuming very little memory or processor resources, while being able to handle very large numbers of notifications. This may free up resources on the client device, consume less battery for mobile devices, and provide notification functionality for SaaS applications using native notification techniques without requiring the SaaS application developers to rewrite notification systems or switch to an operating system-provided notification system.

  • Patent number: 11323368
    Abstract: A method of operating a web service atomic transaction (WS-AT) system includes: receiving, at a processor of an extensible markup language (XML) gateway, a first message from a communicatively coupled client, and inserting a WS-AT Transaction Identifier (ID) from a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) header into a hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) header of the first message to generate a first modified message. The method also includes: receiving, at a processor of a network device communicatively coupled to the XML gateway, the first modified message from the XML gateway, determining that the WS-AT Transaction ID is not yet associated with a service provider in a routing table, and in response, sending the first modified message to a particular service provider and associating the WS-AT Transaction ID with the particular service provider in the routing table such that future messages from the client can be routed to the particular service provider.
