  • Publication number: 20220309787
    Abstract: A server may assign human personality traits to inanimate objects. In an example, a server may effectuate operations that include obtaining information about an object over a period; comparing the information to usage factors, interaction factors, or environmental factors that are linked to thresholds for a personality; based on the comparing, assigning the personality to the object; and based on the personality of the object, assigning an avatar to the object.

  • Publication number: 20220312516
    Abstract: Accessibility of media associated with mobile devices can be modified based on specific scenarios. For example, historical data associated with a relationship between users of a first mobile device and s second mobile device can be used to prioritize media displayed on one or more of the mobile devices. The historical data can include locations, dates, times, and/or any other relevant characteristics associated with the relationship. Alternatively, media can be displayed on the first mobile device, which is relevant to a user of a second mobile device, in response to a condition associated with a recognition pattern being determined to have been satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20220294656
    Abstract: Edge node networks can be utilized to facilitate predictive access to content for a wide variety of applications. For example, predictive data can be generated based on historical patterns, audio data, calendar invites, etc. The predictive data can include predicted locations, persons present based on usage of their mobile device, edge node and access point usage, etc. The predicted data can be used to facilitate more efficient access to content by proactively sending mobile application and/or content usage data to edge node equipment that is predicted to be used in accordance with a predicted a predicted event. Furthermore, the predictive analysis can be used to modify mobile screens for quicker access to content and/or mobile applications.

  • Publication number: 20220263744
    Abstract: Communications services are provided to a device. For instance, where a communications resource is being used by a device via a first communications service provider (CSP) component associated with a first CSP, based on a probabilistic analysis of loading parameters received from a device at the first CSP component. A likelihood that the device will move can be predicted, comprising determining the likelihood is not less than a threshold likelihood. If likely to move, and based on the loading parameters, a loading profile associated with a user of the device is updated resulting in updated likelihoods of usages of the communication resource by the device via respective other CSP components other than the first CSP component. Further, based on the updated likelihoods of usages of the communication resource, at least part of the communications resource can be allocated to the respective other CSP components to facilitate communications with the device.

  • Publication number: 20220245689
    Abstract: This disclosure comprises a solution that can sort objects based on values under various circumstances for the purpose of grouping objects and determining recommended placement or disposition of the objects. An object can be assigned a monetary value, a sentimental value, and a practical value. The practical value can be entered individually for the object via the web or virtual assistant access to the object inventory. The practical value can also be estimated via sensors on or proximate to the object that can sense activity related to the object.
