  • Publication number: 20190158442
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for managing message content are provided. In one embodiment, a method includes receiving, by one or more computing devices, a message comprising audio content and visual media content. The method further includes sending, by the one or more computing devices, a first set of data descriptive of the audio content to an audio device. The audio device is configured to communicate the audio content to a user of the audio device. The method includes sending, by the one or more computing devices, a second set of data descriptive of the visual media content to a display device. The display device is configured to display the visual media content for the user. The method further includes providing, by the one or more computing devices, a notification to the user of the audio device to view the visual media content on the display device.

  • Patent number: 10162896
    Abstract: A system and associated methods for generating a temporal event stream for a user is disclosed. The system includes a processor and a memory storing instructions that when executed cause the system to: receive a signal stream from a user device, determine one or more events from the signal stream, generate a first event stream based on the one or more events, generate one or more queries based on the signal stream, retrieve new events by applying the one or more queries against data stored by an event server and update the first event stream with the new events.

  • Patent number: 9824112
    Abstract: The disclosure includes a system and method for creating event streams from raw data. The system includes a processor and a memory storing instructions that when executed cause the system to: receive a first event and a second event associated with a first user from a first user device; receive a third event associated with a second user from a second user device; determine one or more overlapping activities between the first event and the third event; update the first event using the third event to generate a first update event; update the third event using the first event to generate a second update event; generate a first event stream that includes the first update event and the second event for the first user; and generate a second event stream that includes the second update event for the second user.
