  • Patent number: 11010483
    Abstract: Data security access and management may require a server dedicated to monitoring document access requests and enforcing rules and policies to limit access to those who are not specifically identified as having access to the data. One example of operation may include selecting data to access via a user device, applying at least one policy to the data that limits access to the data to user profiles assigned privileges to the policy, encrypting the data, generating metadata indicating the policy and pairing the metadata with the data, and storing the data and the metadata in a policy server.

  • Patent number: 10607020
    Abstract: Data security access and management may require a server dedicated to monitoring document access requests and enforcing rules and policies to limit access to those who are not specifically identified as having access to the data. One example of operation may include selecting data to be protected via a user device, applying at least one policy to the data, storing the at least one policy in a data record identifying the data, modifying a data format of the data to create a modified data, and storing the modified data in memory.

  • Patent number: 10545884
    Abstract: Data security access and management may require a server dedicated to monitoring document access requests and enforcing rules and policies to limit access to those who are not specifically identified as having access to the data. One example of operation may include selecting data to access via a user device, identifying a user profile associated with the user device, retrieving at least one user policy associated with the user profile, determining whether the user policy permits the user device to access the data, matching the user policy to a data policy associated with the data, receiving an encryption key at the user device, applying the encryption key to the data, and unwrapping the data from a wrapped data format to access the data.

  • Publication number: 20180039634
    Abstract: Features are disclosed for automatically facilitating knowledge sharing using information collected during meetings. Collected information may include both the content and context of a meeting. The meeting content may comprise text collected by automatic speech recognition or entered manually at a user device. The meeting context may comprise information such as the identities of meeting participants and subject matter from a meeting agenda. The content and context information may be used to identify relevant topics for which knowledge is available, and the available knowledge may be presented to one or more of the meeting participants.

  • Patent number: 9870128
    Abstract: Features are disclosed for presenting multiple content items based on one or more rules defining how the multiple content items are to be presented. One content item may be a primary content item, and any number of additional content items may be related to or supplement the primary content item in some way. Rules may define which related content items may be presented and, in the case of multimedia content (e.g., content with both audio and video elements), which elements of the primary content may be overridden by or mixed with related content, and which may not. References to related content may be embedded in the primary content item, or references may be accessed at a content management system or service.

  • Patent number: 9792003
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for generating user format preference data and using that data to select and/or deliver a specific format of a work. For example, a dynamic format delivery service can dynamically collect data representing a user's preferences respecting specific contexts and formats, and can store this data in association with the user. The dynamic format delivery service can then make use of that data to dynamically select a format for a requested work in order to provide the user with a format tailored to that specific user's consumption habits. Moreover, data representing preferences of a population of users, context attributes, or device-specific format preferences may further contribute to selecting a work format.

  • Patent number: 9734153
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to one or more configured computing systems identifying companion content and supplemental content for a base content. Companion content may include, for example, video adaptations of the base content. Supplemental content may include content referenced or related in subject matter to the base content. Information regarding companion content may be utilized to enable a user to interchangeably or synchronously present either a base content (e.g., an eBook or audio book) with the companion content (e.g., a movie adaptation). Information regarding supplemental content may be utilized to present the supplemental content during consumption of a base content, or to save supplemental content for later viewing.

  • Patent number: 9706247
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to one or more configured computing systems identifying when decoupled content includes a companion content pair (e.g., a first content and a second content) that can be synchronously or interchangeably presented. Further, aspects of the present disclosure relate to providing a limited portion of at least one content item of a companion content pair, such as sample portions or trial use portions, and enabling playback of the limited portion synchronized with or as an alternative to the corresponding item of companion content. In some embodiments, a user may be enabled to acquire the complete content item either during or after consumption of the limited portion.

  • Patent number: 9679608
    Abstract: Users may have a set duration during which they may consume content, or they may have a variable duration during which they may consume content. A content pacing service is disclosed so that a portion of an item of content may be conveyed in the set duration during which a user is to consume the content. In one embodiment, the rate at which the content is conveyed is increased or decreased so that a reference point in the item of content (e.g., the end of a chapter in an audiobook) is reached approximately when the duration of the user's content consumption ends.

  • Patent number: 9678637
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for recommending a portion of one or more content items to be consumed in a given context. For example, a recommendation service may receive context information associated with a user's current context, where the context may be associated with a geographic location, an activity or other information. The recommendation service may then determine one or more recommended portions of one or more content items to be consumed in the given context, where the determination may be based in part on content characteristics of the one or more recommended portions.

  • Patent number: 9632647
    Abstract: Digital items of dynamic content may be navigated by content elements associated with the item of dynamic content. In some embodiments, a voice command or natural language query is obtained from a user to whom the item of dynamic content is being presented. The voice command or natural language query may be processed to identify a content element to which the user wishes to navigate. The item of dynamic content may then be presented starting at a presentation position at or near a presentation position with which the content element is associated.

  • Publication number: 20170109781
    Abstract: A media delivery system that may be used for tracking the number and type of human impressions of media content rendered by the system during the time the media was rendered is provided. The media delivery system includes a rendering device for rendering media content, an environmental sensor for sensing impressions and other environmental variables and a computing device configured to gather data related to the external states detected by the environmental sensor. The data may be provided to a backend server for correlating the data to the rendered media content. The system may include rules that interpret that data and may cause the system to custom select, tailor or control future playback of media on the system.
