  • Patent number: 9886703
    Abstract: A method of delivering location-based information comprises receiving a request including a location indicator from a packet-based network and translating the location indicator into a probabilistic representation of one or more possible locations of a mobile user based on historical data collected from mobile devices. By generating the probabilistic user location representation, the method can be used to deal with the inherent uncertainty in user location data, particularly in a mobile world. In some embodiments, this is done by using validation, context analysis, creation of consistent groups, and probability allocation procedures. Location-based document retrieval can be enabled using the probabilistic user location representation.

  • Patent number: 9210540
    Abstract: A geographic document retrieval method (GDR) can be executed by a computer system to index, retrieve and rank geographical documents. Textual and spatial attributes of geographical documents are indexed separately using inverted index and spatial index, respectively. Spatial attributes of a document are represented as one or more contiguously closed regions of arbitrary shapes. Upon receiving an input query carrying a geographic representation of a location using arbitrary regions, the GDR method retrieves one or more documents by executing an overlap test between arbitrary regions from the query and the arbitrary regions associated with the documents.

  • Publication number: 20150332329
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a mobile advertising platform in which mobile user locations and other information are translated into indications of mobile user intent to approach certain businesses, and advertisers can fill mobile advertising requests or choose to price their bids for mobile supplies based on such indications. In certain embodiments, pre-defined places associated with business/brand names are created, and mobile advertising requests are processed to determine if the associated with mobile devices have triggered any of these pre-defined places. If a mobile advertising request is determined to have triggered one or more of the pre-defined places, it is annotated with the triggered place(s), and advertisements are selected based on the triggered places and other factors. The annotated requests with the triggered places can also be commodities in a location market place, which are auctioned to the mobile advertisers, who can place their bids on the triggered places.

  • Publication number: 20060107213
    Abstract: Motion is used as an input to a program running on a mobile device. The mobile device may require input also from alphanumeric or text input device. The motion can be used for items such as selection from a list, or navigation on the map. The motion can be sensed on image processing the output of the camera, or can be directly determine using an accelerometer. Existing programs can be explicitly modified, in which case the program accepts the motion directly. Alternatively, the modification can be implicit—where the motion is converted to a signal that the program can accept, without modification.

  • Publication number: 20060064499
    Abstract: A method for retrieving content from one or more remote information sources is disclosed herein. The inventive method contemplates transmitting a user request over a communication link to a voice browser operative in accordance with a voice-based protocol. In response, a browsing request identifying a remote information source corresponding to the user request is generated. Content formatted in accordance with a predefined protocol is then retrieved from the remote information source in accordance with the browsing request. The retrieved content is converted into a file of information formatted in compliance with the voice-based protocol. A response is provided to the user request on the basis of the file of converted information.

  • Patent number: 6892067
    Abstract: A mobile phone utilizes a script based user interface. The script is stored in memory of the phone and is adapted to cause a browser to utilize one of a plurality of internal features in order to perform a function, and to display a user interface for the function on the display of the phone. Information is transferred between mobile communication devices by organizing the information as a script. The mobile communication device processes the script and performs a function prescribed by the script when it is received. In a method of real-time wireless communication, a WML script defining a user interface is sent from a first mobile device to a second mobile device. A data file is set up in the second device in response to the WML script information. Real-time script information is then repeatedly sent from the first device to the second device. The user interface is displayed on the second device and a function is performed in response to the real-time script information.

  • Publication number: 20040214555
    Abstract: A system for controlling of multiple kinds of modality in wireless telephones. A client controls modality on telephones which do not support simultaneous modality. This is done by suspending a browser when a voice command is detecting, storing the state of the browser, and then automatically restarting the browser when necessary. Another aspect operates in a simultaneous modality system and sends a context sensitive vocabulary to a voice server. This enables improved performance from multimodality, and also minimizes the amount of latency.
