  • Publication number: 20220253277
    Abstract: Implementations set forth herein relate to an automated assistant that can selectively determine whether to incorporate a verbatim interpretation of portions spoken utterances into an entry field and/or incorporate synonymous content into the entry field. For instance, a user can be accessing an interface that provides an entry field (e.g., address field) for receiving user input. In order to provide input for entry field, the user can select the entry field and/or access a GUI keyboard to initialize an automated assistant for assisting with filling the entry field. Should the user provide a spoken utterance, the user can elect to provide a spoken utterance that embodies the intended input (e.g., an actual address) or a reference to the intended input (e.g., a name). In response to the spoken utterance, the automated assistant can fill the entry field with the intended input without necessitating further input from the user.

  • Publication number: 20140096246
    Abstract: Systems, methods, routines and/or techniques are described to protect users from undesirable content, for example, on an open platform. One or more embodiments may prevent the installation of an application package or warn a user if the application package may be undesirable (e.g., because it may contain malware). In one or more embodiments, a method may include receiving a first request to install an application package, and receiving and/or capturing metadata related to the application package. The method may include communicating a second request (e.g., including the metadata) to a remote server, such that the remote server can determine whether the application package may be undesirable. The method may include receiving a response from the remote server, where the response may indicate whether the application package may be undesirable, and initiating installation of the application package if the application package is determined to be safe and/or acceptable.

  • Patent number: 8046261
    Abstract: A mobile terminal is enabled to conduct an EMV transaction. A wireless access node in the EMV card-reader terminal is provided for connecting a mobile terminal to the card-reader terminal. An EMV-proxy module executing in the card-reader terminal facilitates communication between the mobile terminal and the card-reader terminal. The EMV-proxy module lets the mobile terminal function in essentially the same way as a regular EMV chip card with respect to the card-reader terminal. The card-reader terminal may then conduct EMV transactions on behalf of the mobile terminal without requiring new software and/or hardware at the EMV issuer. EMV data is stored in the mobile terminal in the form of secure dynamic data objects. This Abstract is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims. 37 CFR 1.72(b).
