  • Patent number: 10798515
    Abstract: An audio system captures audio data of test sounds through a microphone of a headset worn by a user. The test sounds are played by an external speaker, and the audio data includes audio data captured for different orientations of the headset with respect to the external speaker. A set of head-related transfer function (HRTFs) is calculated based at least in part on the audio data of the test sounds at the different orientations of the headset. A portion of the set of HRTFs is discarded to create an intermediate set of HRTFs. The discarded portion corresponding to one or more distortion regions that are based in part on wearing the headset. One or more HRTFs are generated that correspond to the discarded portion using at least some of the intermediate set of HRTFs to create an individualized set of HRTFs for the user.

  • Publication number: 20200252898
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, via a core network in accordance with a regional data routing plan, an affiliation request from a data source device based on a first level regional affiliation of the data source device and a first computing entity. The method further includes determining whether a second level regional affiliation is substantially equal to the first level regional affiliation. When the second level regional affiliation is not substantially equal to the first level regional affiliation, the method further includes identifying a second computing entity based on the second level regional affiliation and sending a notification message to the second computing entity regarding the data source device being affiliated with the second computing entity. The method further includes broadcasting a gateway message to the core network to change the regional data routing plan such that data from the data source device is routed to the second computing entity.

  • Patent number: 10721220
    Abstract: A data custodian and curation system may store data from a data supplier in encrypted form and may allow users to consume the data when the consumers obtain access to the data through an agreement. The curation system may manage access to the data, even allowing a consumer to use the data as if it were their own, but may track each usage of the data to implement a payment scheme or various usage restrictions. The curation system may encrypt downstream uses of the data and operate as a digital rights management system for the data. The custodian and curation system may operate as a cloud service that may contain encrypted data from many data providers but where the data providers may individually control access to their data in a managed system at any granular level.
