  • Publication number: 20240221909
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to mental health anomaly detection and guidance. According to one aspect of the concepts and technologies disclosed herein, a mental health user system can create a baseline user behavior profile for a user. The mental health user system can monitor a behavior of the user. The mental health user system can determine whether the behavior of the user is anomalous in comparison to the baseline user behavior profile. The mental health user system can, in response to determining that the behavior of the user is anomalous, provide a treatment to the user to return the behavior to be consistent with the baseline user behavior profile.

  • Patent number: 12028309
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards delivering electronic messages from senders to recipients in an intelligent way, based on the determined likelihood of each recipient acting on a message. Message delivery can be delayed upon delayed message delivery criterion being satisfied, based on user profile data the user establishes for each messaging application. Predicted recipient user availably, predicted recipient user receptivity and/or the identity of the sender, for example, can be used as factors in determining delivery data representing the likelihood of a recipient acting on a message. Delivery of the message is to a recipient's device is delayed when the delivery data satisfies delayed delivery criterion. The delayed delivery time can be determined from the recipient user's predicted availably and/or receptivity data, and/or the identity of the sender. The sender is notified of a delayed message delivery, and can be presented with options as to other actions to take.

  • Patent number: 12028483
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for communications network security for handling proxy voice calls that employ a voicebot. According to one aspect disclosed herein, a call handling system can intercept, from a communications network, a call request that is directed to a called target device. The call handling system can determine that the call request was generated by a voicebot on behalf of a user equipment. The call handling system can suspend the call request from being routed to the called target device. The call handling system can generate a voicebot confirmation request that identifies the voicebot and the user equipment. The call handling system can provide the voicebot confirmation request to the called target. The call request can be suspended while the voicebot confirmation request is provided to the called target device.

  • Patent number: 12021717
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards managing the establishment and maintenance of communication connectivity between a device and service. Condition data can indicate when to initiate a state change of a connection between a device and a server. Current device conditions associated with the device are evaluated to determine whether to initiate a state change, e.g., from a connected state to a paused state, or vice-versa. The connectivity may be managed per connection type, e.g., cellular versus Wi-Fi, and on a per-application basis, e.g., turned on for a social media application, off for mail and messaging applications. Settings can be used to manage connectivity for an application, e.g., sometimes connected, sometimes paused based on information specific to that application. Trends, user practices and schedule data can be used to predict and manage connectivity, as well as to notify the user to take some action.
