  • Publication number: 20200211162
    Abstract: Obfuscating a human or other subject in digital media preserves privacy. A user of a smartphone, for example, may enable a flag for obscuring her face in digital photos or movies. When any device captures digital media, the user's smartphone transmits the flag for receipt. The device capturing the digital media is thus informed of the user's desire to obscure her face or even entire image. The device capturing the digital media may thus perform an obscuration in response to the flag.

  • Patent number: 10559229
    Abstract: Content is securely shared between communication devices in an ad-hoc manner by employing common sensing context to establish pairing between the communication devices. In one aspect, the communication devices are within a specified distance from each other and sense common signals from their environment over a specified time period. The common signals are analyzed to determine an initialization or session key, which is utilized to secure content transfer between the communication devices. Additionally or alternatively, the key is utilized to provide access to virtual (e.g., digital content) and/or physical (e.g., buildings) resources.

  • Patent number: 9955330
    Abstract: Distributed computing task costing is disclosed. Costing can be employed to determine if a task will be passed to a distributed computing cluster including mobile devices. Costing can include determining a base cost value predicated on a selectable level of utility to a user of a burdened device, a base time value related to completing the task without the use of the cluster, determining a delay cost, and any monetary costs associated with performing the task without the use of the cluster. Costing can further include demining a relief cost that can include the selectable level of utility, a relief time value related to completing the task with the cluster, the delay cost, an incentive cost based on the sum across a set of relief devices and their corresponding parameters for cluster participation, and any remaining monetary costs borne by the burdened device.

  • Patent number: 9679194
    Abstract: Methods for obfuscating an image of a subject in a captured media are disclosed. For example, a method receives a communication from an endpoint device of a subject indicating that the image of the subject is to be obfuscated in a captured media. The communication may include a feature set associated with the subject, where the feature set contains facial features of the subject and motion information associated with the subject. The method then detects the image of the subject in the captured media. For example, the image of the subject is detected by matching the facial features of the subject to the image of the subject in the captured media and matching the motion information associated with the subject to a trajectory of the image of the subject in the captured media. The method then obfuscates the image of the subject in the captured media.

  • Publication number: 20150149528
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems to determine a distributed content storage scheme are disclosed. Example methods to store a content file include generating, with a processor remote from a first client device storing content shares of the content file, a first content share storage scheme identifying a second client device to which a first subset of a first combination of the content shares is to be distributed for storage when a first client device is coupled to a first local area network. The method further includes generating, with the processor, a second content share storage scheme identifying a third client device to which a first subset of a second combination of the content shares is to be distributed for storage when the first client device is coupled to a second local area network.

  • Publication number: 20140098141
    Abstract: Data entry using a software keyboard such as a touchscreen keyboard is secured by varying key sizes in the keyboard from key to key and from software keyboard configuration to software keyboard configuration, decoupling display locations from keys. Multiple software keyboard configurations are generated, each having different sets of key sizes. The keyboard configuration may be changed with each keystroke, or may be changed for each prompted entry including multiple keystrokes.

  • Publication number: 20100299615
    Abstract: A method for injecting sensed presence into social networking applications includes receiving sensor data associated with a user (102), inferring a presence status of the user based upon analysis of the sensor data, storing the sensor data and presence status within a database, and sending the presence status to a social networking server (126) to update the user's presence information for the social networking applications based upon the user's preferences. A system for injecting sensed presence into social networking applications includes at least one sensor (110) proximate to a user, the at least one sensor being used for collecting sensor data associated with the user, a presence server (116) for receiving and storing the sensor data, an inference engine for analyzing the stored data and to infer a presence status for the user, and a presentation engine for presenting the information to the user and other users.
