  • Publication number: 20190204107
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure include a navigation system and computer-implemented methods for proactively re-routing vehicles based on an analysis of input component data obtained from the navigation-enabled devices. The navigation system scores the input component data to obtain a measure of frustration (e.g., a feeling of being upset or annoyed) of the user of the navigation-enabled device. The navigation system may provide a detour suggestion for display on the navigation-enabled device to persuade the user of the device to direct their vehicle to depart from its current location or route in an effort to remove the vehicle from traffic, and thereby reduce the frustration level of the user. The detour suggestion may include an alternative route to the original destination, or an alternative destination.

  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10304476
    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.

  • Patent number: 10298983
    Abstract: In various example embodiments, a system and method for dynamically ordering content and discrete content segments are presented. A set of discrete content segments is received having a first order for distributing the set of discrete content segments during a display of a media stream. Event data is received. The event data is representative of a set of events depicted by the media stream. A set of event instances is determined from the event data representing the set of events depicted by the media stream. A second order is generated for the set of content segments based on the set of event instances.

  • Publication number: 20190087769
    Abstract: Example methods and systems are directed to a managed inventory. A database may store information regarding items owned by a user. The information regarding an item may include a quantity owned and one or more triggering events. Based on the occurrence of a triggering event, an order for the item may be placed without user intervention. Data to the database may be provided by one or more sensors. Triggering events may be defined in terms of sensor data. The triggering event may be defined by a user or through machine learning. The order may be placed using a predetermined modality or a dynamically-determined modality based on one or more criteria, such as price, shipping speed, and the urgency of the order.

  • Publication number: 20180336607
    Abstract: In various example embodiments, a system and method for managing transaction in a digital marketplace are provided. In example embodiments, a transaction request involving a digital good is received. A determination as to whether the transaction involves a purchase of the digital good is performed. Based on the transaction involving the purchase of the digital good, a further determination as to whether an overlap in inventory or a related item involving the digital good exists is performed. Based on the overlap in inventory existing, a sub-collection of the inventory is created with which to complete the transaction request. Based on existence of the related item, a combination package including the digital good and the related item is created and offered in response to the transaction request.

  • Publication number: 20180330418
    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.
