  • Patent number: 9473804
    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. Each discrete content segment includes a set of ordering factors. 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 discrete content segments based on the set of event instances and the sets of ordering factors.

  • Publication number: 20160283519
    Abstract: In various example embodiments, a system and method for visual search and associated data decay models are presented. In one example embodiment, image history data associated with an output display of the machine is captured. The image history data is analyzed to identify groups of images associated with a plurality of events, and context information is identified that is associated with the plurality of events. One or more images for each event of the plurality of events is selected as a key image for an associated event as part of a plurality of key images, and a searchable event timeline index is generated. Key frames from an index of activities of one or more devices may then be displayed as part of a user search for information.

  • Publication number: 20160189149
    Abstract: Systems and methods for authentication of users based on biometrics and determination of group characteristics based on biometrics are provided. Biometric profiles of users, which include reference biometric data for behavioral patterns and/or physiological characteristics, are stored in a biometric system. A biometric capture device captures a biometric sample that includes a representation of one or more biometrics of a user. The biometric system determines biometric data from the biometric sample and compares the biometric data with the reference biometric data. The biometric system may authenticate the user based on the comparison alone or in combination with other authentication techniques. Further, for biometric samples that include a representation of biometrics for a group of users, the biometric system may determine a group characteristic from the biometric sample and provide services relevant to the group.

  • Publication number: 20160171354
    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.
