  • Patent number: 11057673
    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses and computer program products leveraging an internet of things network integrated into a surrounding environment to detect a presence of users within engagement zones surrounding content displayed in a physical location. One or more IoT devices equipped with sensors, audio systems, video systems and/or user input capabilities record interactions with the displayed content, and capture behavioral cues indicating an expressed interest in the content by users. Digital versions of the displayed content are delivered to one or more devices associated with the user. Additional content associated with the displayed content or similar content having one or more of the same distinguishing characteristics may be aggregated with the digital versions of the displayed content and delivered to the user. Aggregated content delivery can be delayed until users are in a safe, suitable location to review the aggregated content being delivered.

  • Patent number: 10832195
    Abstract: Processors configured by aspects of the present invention collect pricing metrics that are applicable to restocking operations executed to restock different individual commodities within different respective ones of a plurality of networked bins. In response to determining that a quantity of a first commodity within a first of the bins is below a threshold restocking level, processors combine a first restocking operation that restocks a first restocking quantity of the first commodity within the first bin with a second restocking operation that restocks a second restocking quantity of a second commodity within a second bin of the plurality of bins into a combined restocking operation, in response to determining that executing the combined restocking operation generates a combination cost saving relative to a cost of executing the first restocking operation without combining with the second restocking operation.

  • Publication number: 20200285701
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for providing contextual outputs based on varying coordinates related to a target event is provided. The method is implemented by a processor. The processor receives the target event based on a user input and the varying coordinates. The processor then executes a semantic analysis and relationships building operation on the varying coordinates and the target event to generate proposals and provides the contextual outputs based on the proposals. Note that the semantic analysis and relationships building operation reduces recommendation errors by and increases a computing efficiency of the processor with regard to providing the contextual outputs.

  • Publication number: 20200019534
    Abstract: At least one unique collection of storage artifacts can be specified to indicate that the storage artifact is a member of the unique collection. Each storage artifact can be a discrete object comprising digitally encoded content that is stored as a node within a tree structure of a tangible storage medium. The collection can be referenced by a set of different storage artifacts to form a collection of related storage artifacts. Each storage artifact can correspond to different collections, wherein membership within a collection is independent of a storage path within the tree structure. A file management action relating to the storage artifact can be performed. The file management action can be dependent upon the storage artifact being a member of the unique collection.
