  • Publication number: 20210005186
    Abstract: Systems, devices and methods are described herein for segmentation of content, and more specifically for segmentation of content in a content management system. In one aspect, a method may include receiving content associated with speech, text, or closed captioning data. The speech, the text, or the closed captioning data may be analyzed to derive at least one of a topic, subject, or event for at least a portion of the content. The content may be divided into two or more content segments based on the analyzing. At least one of the topic, the subject, or the event may be associated with at least one of the two or more content segments based on the analyzing. At least one of the two or more content segments may then be published such that each of the two or more content segments is individually accessible.

  • Publication number: 20200412635
    Abstract: Methods are described for providing routing updates in information-centric networks (ICNs) by using a centralized ICN routing coordination unit to exchange updated routing tables with certain popular nodes in popular node segments, by using a routing coordinator that executes an NFN execution plan, or by flooding an ICN-Route-Discovery-Request over multiple ICN route segments between first and second popular nodes, the second node selecting one of the ICN route segments and responding to the ICN-Route-Discovery-Request by sending a unicast Route-Discovery-Response to the first node over the selected one of the ICN route segments. Other methods for providing context aware forwarding for dynamic ICNs such as vehicular networks, RTT estimation for ICNs, and machine learning techniques for optimizing/compressing a forwarding information based in an ICN node are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20200305042
    Abstract: To address technical problems facing producer and consumer mobility in cellular ICN/NDN networks, a technical solution includes leveraging device tracking during handover in the cellular system to optimize cache replacement and route updates during handover. This solution also improves performance by advance caching and route update during mobility handling, which reduces or eliminates interest packet flooding and latency for upcoming potential content request and retrieval. This solution also improves performance by operating based on the observed popularity of the content, and based on the mobility patterns of the consumer and producer.

  • Publication number: 20200302921
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices are described herein for placing secondary content into a break of unknown duration in a stream of primary content. In one aspect, the described techniques may include streaming a segment of primary content, for example, by a reduce capability client device, such as a mobile device or tablet. The device may receive information indicative of a break in the streaming of the primary content. The device may play secondary content based on receiving the information indicative of the break. The device may determine when a next segment of the primary content is available, and begin streaming the next segment of the primary content upon detecting that the second segment of the primary content is available.

  • Patent number: 10733565
    Abstract: Described is an interactive data processing system configured to facilitate selection by a human associate of tentative values generated by an automated system from sensor data. In one implementation, an event may take place in a materials handling facility. The event may comprise a pick or place of an item from an inventory location, movement of a user, and so forth. The sensor data associated with the event is processed by an automated system to determine tentative values associated with the event. In some situations, an uncertainty may exist as to which of the tentative values accurately reflects the actual event. The sensor data and tentative values may be provided to a human associate. The associate may select one of the tentative values. The selected tentative value and the sensor data may be used to train the automated system.

  • Publication number: 20200244728
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for optimizing the operations of an ICN, particularly for an ICN with clustered nodes. A cluster head node may function as an orchestrator and a coordinator for efficient caching, routing, and computing and for co-existence of ICN and IP nodes in the network. A content store of an ICN router may include an indication of the time after which data expires and the new data is to be swapped in place of the expired data after that point in time. Digital rights management (DRM) enforcement is provided by managing access to a DRM engine in at least one of the ICN nodes in a cluster. Congestion control is provided by minimizing the number of ICN scoped interest requests and thereby minimizing the potentially high volume of data responses. These techniques optimize interest packet forwarding and processing through collaboration with neighboring ICN nodes.

  • Publication number: 20190327134
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for mission critical (MC) push notification mechanism in a high-reliability (HR) information centric network (ICN) are described herein. For example, a node may test network links to other nodes to classify the other nodes into proximate nodes and non-proximate nodes based on a reception metric. The node may then elect a set of leader nodes from the proximate nodes. Here, the set of leader nodes are selected based on link quality between respective leader nodes and non-proximate nodes. The node may detect an MC event and create an ICN data packet that contains data from the MC event. The node may then transmit the ICN data packet to the set of leader nodes that then relay the ICN data packet to the non-proximate nodes.

  • Publication number: 20190327328
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for information-centric network data cache management are described herein. A demand metric may be calculated for a content item requested from an information-centric network (ICN). A resistance metric may be calculated for each cache node of a set of cache nodes in the ICN based on the demand metric. A topology of the set of cache nodes may be evaluated to identify a transmission cost for each cache node of the set of cache nodes. An influencer node may be selected from the set of cache nodes based on the resistance metric for the influencer node and the transmission cost for the influencer node. The content item may be cached in a data cache of the influencer node.

  • Publication number: 20190319890
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for information centric network (ICN) approximate computation caching are described herein. For example, an interest packet that includes a feature set of input data may be received. A node may then perform a search of a local data store using the feature set to determine an approximate computation result cached in the local data store. Here, the approximate computation result may be based on input data that differs from the input data named in the interest packet. The node may then return the approximate computation result to an author of the interest packet in response to the search.
