  • Publication number: 20190208282
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for modifying a fast-forwarding speed based on a reaction time of a user when a frame of interest is detected. A media guidance application may receive a command from a user to fast-forward through a media asset and may execute a fast-forwarding operation through frames of the media asset. The media guidance application may detect that the fast-forwarding operation is approaching a frame of interest to the viewer. The media guidance application may reduce the fast-forwarding speed to a second speed slower than the first speed, where the second speed is determined based on an estimated reaction time of the user. The media guidance application may receive a command to resume playback from the user while the fast-forwarding operation is occurring at the second speed and may play back the media asset at a default playback speed from a point corresponding to a moment when the command was received.

  • Patent number: 10319235
    Abstract: Systems and methods for resolving conflicts between paths of smart vehicles based on time remaining in media assets being consumed in the smart vehicles. For example, two smart vehicles may be traveling along routes that conflict (e.g., they will converge at a particular point in the routes and collide). In order to resolve the conflict, one vehicle is instructed to yield to the other vehicle until the path is clear. The vehicles are instructed based on whether one or both vehicles are displaying a media asset (e.g., a movie) to passengers, and the amount of time left in the media asset compared to the amount of time left until the vehicles reach their destinations.

  • Publication number: 20190058920
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein for automatically providing summarized views of a media asset in a multi-window user interface. For example, a media guidance application may generate a summary view of a media asset by including important content portions into the summary view based on metadata of the content portion. The media guidance application may display the summary view, and missed content in parallel at different windows of the same user equipment. The missed content and the summary view may be coordinated to be displayed in synchronization. In this way, when a user watches the summary view at a center window on the user equipment, the user may also have the option to watch the missed content displayed simultaneously on a side window to catch up on the missed content.

  • Publication number: 20190026680
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein for updating, using a specific process that reduces the resource requirements and ensures recommendation relevancy, a particular database that is used for recommending actors. A media guidance application may infrequently search a set of irrelevant actors for an actor who can be classified as a promising actor. The media guidance application may add any promising actor to a set of promising actors. The media guidance application may more frequently search the set of promising actors for an actor who can be classified as a relevant actor. Upon identifying a relevant actor, the media guidance application may include the relevant actor in a set of relevant actors. The media guidance application may then recommend actors to a user based on actors included in the set of relevant actors.

  • Publication number: 20190028779
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein for providing a user with a segment of content where the segment includes a given actor and where quality of acting of the given actor in the segment matches a user specified quality of acting. The user specified level of acting associated with the actor may be below a threshold level of acting that is required for a given level of acting to be categorized as good acting. The media guidance application may determine a media asset in which the user specified actor plays a leading role. The media guidance application may then determine a segment of the media asset in which the actor appears and in which a level of acting associated with the actor matches the user specified level of acting. The media guidance application may generate for display the segment.

  • Publication number: 20180365651
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided herein for altering a start time of an event based on indicia of how late event attendees will be for the event that are retrieved from location applications corresponding to each attendee of the attendees. For example, a media guidance application may determine a start time of an event, a location of the event, and attendees of the event. The media guidance application may determine location applications corresponding to the attendees. The media guidance application may query the location applications for arrival times of each attendee. The media guidance application may calculate a plurality of differences between each of the arrival times and the start time of the event. Based on the plurality of differences, the media guidance application may delay the start time of the event.
