  • Patent number: 10515640
    Abstract: An example apparatus for generating dialogue includes an audio receiver to receive audio data including speech. The apparatus also includes a verification score generator to generate a verification score based on the audio data. The apparatus further includes a user detector to detect that the verification score exceeds a lower threshold but does not exceed a higher threshold. The apparatus includes a dialogue generator to generate dialogue to solicit additional audio data to be used to generate an updated verification score in response to detecting that the verification score exceeds a lower threshold but does not exceed a higher threshold.

  • Publication number: 20190214021
    Abstract: Techniques for passive enrollment of a user in a speaker identification (ID) device are provided. One technique includes: parsing, by a processor of the speaker ID device, a speech sample, spoken by the user, into a keyword phrase sample and a command phrase sample; identifying, by a text-dependent speaker ID circuit of the speaker ID device, the user as the speaker of the keyword phrase sample; associating the command phrase sample with the identified user; determining if the command phrase sample in conjunction with one or more earlier command phrase samples associated with the user is sufficient command phrase sampling to enroll the user in a text-independent speaker ID circuit of the speaker ID device; and enrolling the user in the text-independent speaker ID circuit using the command phrase samples associated with the user after determining there is sufficient command phrase sampling to enroll the user.

  • Publication number: 20190158654
    Abstract: A system and method for discouraging the in appropriate use of a mobile device including registering a mobile device with a monitoring application running on a system coupled with a network. A mobile device is linked with the monitoring application through the network. The operational status of the mobile device is monitored to detect if a change occurs in the operational status. A change in the operational status of the mobile device is reported to the monitoring program with time information and the status change is displayed in a graphical interface, and a notification message is sent to a system user. Beacons might also be implemented to advise a device user to disable a mobile device to be monitored.

  • Patent number: 10297094
    Abstract: Access by a requesting entity to an asset is authorized by an access-controlling entity, which transmits to the requesting entity a challenge data set and then receives from the requesting entity a response purportedly corresponding to a representation of the challenge data set in a non-repudiatable form, obtained from an event validation system. The access-controlling entity queries the event validation system to determine whether the response does correspond to a correct representation of the challenge data set in the non-repudiatable form, and authorizes the requesting entity for access only if the response is correct representation. Non-repudiation can be established through entry into a blockchain, or using a hash-tree-based digital signature infrastructure.

  • Patent number: 10225643
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods for secure audio acquisition. The method includes receiving audio data via a digital microphone. The digital microphone outputs a single bit at a high sampling rate. The digital microphone output is converted to a full range audio signal. The full range audio signal is filtered to provide a band limited audio output that avoids capture of enough of a spectral range of speech for the speech to be intelligible.

  • Patent number: 10170135
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods for technology to perform gait detection and identification. The system includes a pre-processing pipeline to process audio input data from one or more microphones to combine and strengthen an audio gait signal. The pre-processing pipeline is coupled to a gait detector to detect the sound of one or more footsteps from the audio gait signal. The system also includes a person evaluator (e.g., identifier/verifier) to identify the person associated with the one or more footsteps using a set of trained footstep identification (ID) classifiers. Each trained footstep ID classifier is mapped to the gait of a specific person in the home based on a particular combination of person, footwear, and floor surface within the home.

  • Publication number: 20180204545
    Abstract: A chromatic harmonica with reduced air leakage in which a flexible mouthpiece replaces the conventional rigid mouthpiece, and a low friction valve slide replaces the conventional valve slide, thereby allowing the low friction valve slide to move horizontally when played without binding, and which eliminates the need for a gap between the mouthpiece and valve slide through which air leaks. For the chromatic harmonica with a flexible mouthpiece to function properly, a new button configuration is added. The button is disposed in the rear portion of the chromatic harmonica. A bar is attached to the button at one end of the bar, and the other end of the bar inserts into an opening in the valve slide. The button further comprises a cylinder, around which a spring is disposed. The cylinder inserts inside of a hole on a side of the chromatic harmonica adjacent the rear.
