  • Publication number: 20240134921
    Abstract: A user of a network-based system may correspond to a user profile that describes the user. The user profile may describe the user using one or more descriptors of items that correspond to the user (e.g., items owned by the user, items liked by the user, or items rated by the user). In some situations, such a user profile may be characterized as a “taste profile” that describes an array or distribution of one or more tastes, preferences, or habits of the user. Accordingly, the user profile machine within the network-based system may generate the user profile by accessing descriptors of items that correspond to the user, clustering one or more of the descriptors, and generating the user profile based on one or more clusters of the descriptors.

  • Publication number: 20240056944
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) in a mobile network is configured to establish a first packet data network (PDN) connection between the UE and an Internet Protocol Multimedia Service (IMS) network of the mobile network via a wireless local area network (WLAN) access point. The first PDN connection is for implementing a voice call. The UE determines that at least one of the UE or the mobile network fails to support Voice over New Radio (VoNR). Responsive to determining that at least one of the UE or the mobile network fails to support Voice over New Radio (VoNR), the UE prevents itself from establishing a connection with a first radio access network (RAN) of the mobile network.
