  • Publication number: 20190272841
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for real-time audio processing employs a gaze detection sensor to detect a direction of a user's gaze and output a gaze signal corresponding to the detected direction of the user's gaze. A digital signal processing unit responds to a plurality of signals corresponding to a plurality of sounds received at the apparatus, and the determined direction of gaze to identify a signal of interest from the plurality of signals using the gaze signal. The signal of interest is processed for output to the user. In embodiments, a microphone array provides the plurality of signals. An imaging sensor may work with either the microphone array or the gaze detection sensor to identify the signal of interest.

  • Publication number: 20190258358
    Abstract: A system and method for standardizing user interface elements are presented. A first application is identified having a higher use metric than a second application, the first application including one or more user interface elements that have one or more respective parameters. The second application has one or more user interface elements that are similar to the user interface elements of the first application and has one or more respective parameters that are different than the respective parameters of the user interface elements of the first application. A determination of similarity is made between the user interface elements applications based upon at least one predetermined criterion. Based on the determination, one or more parameters of the user interface elements of the second application are modified to match one or more parameters of the first application.

  • Publication number: 20190205938
    Abstract: Systems and methods determine a user's perceived value of a good or service (“product”) and store the perceived value in a perception map. A perceived value may be measured by asking questions regarding a value of a product alone or in relation to another product. The perception map may be used for product placement by dynamically placing a product based on a user's perceived value of a product, generate purchase recommendations, generate exchange recommendations, and generate return value recommendations.

    Abstract: Systems, methods and media for managing digital rights in three-dimensional (3D) printing are provided. In one example, a registration of digital rights in a first 3D object is received from a first user and via a portal. The registration includes a certification device. The registration including the certification device is published in an online environment, and the first 3D object is made available for replication by second users via the portal. A request for access to the digital rights in the first 3D object is received from a second user for 3D printing of the first 3D object. Permission is granted under the digital rights in the first 3D object to the second user for printing the first 3D object. Instructions are electronically transmitted to a 3D printer to print the first 3D object, and the 3D printer prints the first 3D object based on the instructions.

  • Publication number: 20180268453
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure include a system comprising a computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program and computer-implemented methods for generating a composite image. Consistent with some embodiments, a method includes receiving a first image captured by a camera on a user device and a request for a composite image based on the first image. A database of images is queried based on the first image to identify a second image. The second image is provided to the user device for presentation via an application running on the user device. A selection of one or more image elements from the second image is received via the application running on the user device. The composite image is generated by replacing one or more elements of the first image with the selected one or more elements from the second image, and the composite image is provided to the user device.

  • Patent number: 10055774
    Abstract: Systems, methods and media for managing digital rights and pre-verification of structural integrity in three-dimensional (3D) printing are provided. In one example, a system comprises at least one module, executing on one or more computer processors, to receive a request from a user to print a 3D object by a 3D printer or printing service and receive a conditional authorization from an owner of digital rights in the 3D object to print the 3D object. The conditional authorization can include a printing specification or limitation. The at least one module pre-verifies, for structural integrity once printed by the 3D printer or printing service, a digital model on which the 3D object is based. In response to a received conditional authorization, the at least one module transmits instructions to the 3D printer or printing service to print the 3D object.
