  • Publication number: 20230040084
    Abstract: Implementations described herein relate to methods, systems, and computer-readable media to automatically answer a call. In some implementations, a method includes receiving a call from a caller device at a client device. The method further includes determining, based on an identifier associated with the call, whether the call matches auto answer criteria, and yin response to determining that the call matches the auto answer criteria, answering the call without user input and without alerting a user of the client device. The method further includes generating a call embedding for the call based on received audio of the call, comparing the call embedding with spam embeddings to determine whether the call is a spam call, and in response to determining that the call is a spam call, terminating the call.

  • Publication number: 20230015280
    Abstract: A processor coupled to a first communication device produces and transmits a first encoded vector and a second encoded vector to a second communication device via a communication channel that applies a channel transformation to the encoded vectors during transmission. A processor coupled to the second communication device receives the transformed signals, constructs a matrix based on the transformed signals, detects an effective channel thereof, and identifies left and right singular vectors of the effective channel. A precoding matrix is selected from a codebook of unitary matrices based on a message, and a second encoded vector is produced based on a second known vector, the precoding matrix, a complex conjugate of the left singular vectors, and the right singular vectors. A first symbol of the second encoded vector and a second symbol of the second encoded vector are sent to the first communication device for identification of the message.

  • Publication number: 20220209831
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a first communication device with multiple antennas, operably coupled to a processor and configured to access a codebook of transformation matrices. The processor generates a set of symbols based on an incoming data, and applies a permutation to each of the symbols to produce a set of permuted symbols. The processor transforms each of the permuted symbols based on at least one primitive transformation matrix, to produce a set of transformed symbols. The processor applies, to each of the transformed symbols, a precode matrix selected from the codebook of transformation matrices to produce a set of precoded symbols. The codebook of transformation matrices is accessible to a second communication device. The processor sends a signal to cause transmission, to the second communication device, of multiple signals, each representing a precoded symbol from the set of precoded symbols, each of the signals transmitted using a unique antenna from the plurality of antennas.
