  • Patent number: 11074280
    Abstract: The present invention provides assistance to a user that is on-boarding an action for a virtual assistant. Methods and systems provide, based on an initial command group, recommendations for additional commands, actions, and applications that are relevant to commands included in the initial command group. The initial command group includes commands that include a sequence of natural language words or tokens. Additional commands are determined. The additional commands are relevant to the initial commands and provided to the user as recommended commands to include in the command group. The additional commands are determined by employing the initial commands as search queries to search preprocessed document clusters. Each document included in the document clusters relates to a potential command to include in the command group. In response to receiving a selection of a recommended command, the command group is updated to include the selected recommended command.

  • Patent number: 10963499
    Abstract: Disclosed are techniques for generating a language model that is applicable to the interpretation of commands for invoking application-based actions via a digital assistant device. In various embodiments, command templates that are each mapped to one of a plurality of action datasets are obtained to generate synthetic documents of a language model document corpus. Each synthetic document can be modified to include a tag that corresponds to an associated command template from which the document's generation was based. The language model can include a plurality of document clusters that are generated based on the modified synthetic documents, among other things.

  • Patent number: 10929613
    Abstract: Disclosed are techniques for automatically extracting discovered topics and/or from determined discourse clusters for the generation of a language model that is applicable to interpreting commands received from a digital assistant device. An electronic document corpus can be generated having a plurality of documents that are clustered based on entropy, among other things. The clusters can be associated with a corresponding plurality of cluster attractors that are generally representative of a context of the documents included therein. The documents within the cluster for each of the document clusters can be analyzed, so that clusters determined representative of a hierarchical discourse community can be determined and logically merged. The merged clusters can be analyzed, such that topics and/or sub-topics can be determined and extracted therefrom, for indexing and storage, among other things.

  • Patent number: 10931782
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for providing and/or interacting with a profile verification service. A processor executing a profile verification service can receive a request to verify a user profile associated with a user of a social networking application. The processor can identify a computing device associated with the user profile, obtain location data that relates to the user profile and the computing device, and identify an activity associated with the computing device based upon the location data. The processor can determine if the user profile is accurate based upon the activity identified. If a determination is made that the user profile is accurate, the processor can verify the user profile. If a determination is made that the user profile is not accurate, the processor can update the user profile.

  • Patent number: 10832285
    Abstract: To provide mobile device coupons and discounts, a mobile device couponing system is provided to generate and send coupons to mobile devices based on a probability that the mobile device is within a defined region. The value of the coupons can be inversely proportional to the probability that the mobile device is within the defined region. The probabilities can be precomputed by calculating the probability that each cell in grid in or around the defined region is in the defined region using a set of standardized location resolutions. When location information is received from the mobile device, the probability that the mobile device is within the defined region can be retrieved based on the closest cell that matches the location indicated in the location information and the standardized location resolution closest to the location resolution indicated by the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10823367
    Abstract: A lighting apparatus and system which employs LED boards as a light source, as well as diffusers for casting light toward workspaces and other areas of interest. The apparatus is modular to permit the system to be adaptively configured in a wide variety of arrangements. An apparatus module has a housing assembly mounting a direct light LED board, a diffuser, and a hub connecting the housing assembly to the diffuser and holding the diffuser and housing assembly in spaced-apart relation. By the apparatus, the direct light LED board projects light from the housing assembly and across a separation distance toward the diffuser. The diffuser receives the direct light and diffuses the direct light from the module. Light originates in the housing assembly, is transmitted to the diffuser, and the diffused light is then projected from the module for illuminating the surrounding environment.
