  • Publication number: 20240171558
    Abstract: A processing system including at least one processor may obtain a first input data set associated with a telephone number from a first service provider that implements a multi-factor authentication process for permitting an access to a service of the first service provider and may apply at least the first input data set to a machine learning model implemented by the processing system to obtain a risk score associated with the telephone number for a subscriber identity module swap of a subscriber identity module, where the machine learning model is trained to generate the risk score associated with the telephone number in accordance with at least the first input data set. The processing system may then perform at least one remedial action associated with the telephone number and the subscriber identity module, in response to the risk score.

  • Publication number: 20240122511
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards emotion detection and translation for electronic communications. An emotional state of a first communication participant can be detected, e.g., through face recognition, biometric information, and/or communication content analysis. The emotional state can be encoded in metadata that can accompany the communication content. The metadata can be translated into one or more embellishments that represent the emotional state, and the embellishments can be inserted into the communication content. The embellished communication content can then be delivered to a second communication participant.

  • Publication number: 20240071605
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards presenting a medical practitioner with information that assists the practitioner in communicating with a given patient. Baseline data describing a medical patient is obtained, such as from one or more previous visits. The baseline data can be compared with current data, e.g., sensed by patient biosensors and/or discerned from a current video of the patient during the visit. Historical and/or known healthy data can be used as baseline data. Interaction data representing an interaction (e.g., a conversation during a current visit) between the medical practitioner and the medical patient is determined. Based on the baseline data and the interaction data, during the interaction between the medical practitioner and the medical patient the medical practitioner can be presented with coaching data to assist the medical practitioner in communicating with the patient.

  • Publication number: 20240070948
    Abstract: The disclosed technology relates to detection of attention exhibited by a second user to a first user's avatar in a virtual reality environment. A first user's avatar activity and the second user's activity are evaluated to determine the second user's (e.g., via another avatar) attention level directed towards first user's avatar. Information can be sent to notify the first user that the second user's attention level has satisfied attention-level criterion data. For example, if the second user is viewing and/or is within audio range of the first user for too long of a time or too frequently, then the first user can be notified and/or other action taken. Remedial action is available for negative attention, such blocking the second user from experiencing the first user in the environment. Detection of attention for positive purposes is available, such as to reward an influencer whose avatar is receiving significant attention from followers.

  • Publication number: 20240070216
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards virtual reality bookmarks that maintain state data for a user in a virtual reality environment, such that the user can to return to that virtual reality environment at a later time. While presenting virtual reality session content to a user, a system or the like can receive a request to pause the virtual reality session from a user. Session state data, e.g., in the form of a virtual reality bookmark, is saved based on the pause request. A later request to resume presentation of the virtual reality content results in the system accessing the virtual reality session data, which is used to present resumed virtual reality session content to the user based on the session state data. A pause request may be for an individual user or for each user participating in a session. Virtual reality bookmarks may be shared with other users.

  • Publication number: 20240070241
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards virtual reality collaboration spaces with associated context data. Once created, a virtual reality collaboration space can be pervasively existent, such that the space can be joined or returned to as needed by any admitted participants. The existence of a created collaboration space in association with its collaboration context data can be advertised to specific invitees or general invitees, and can be searchable. In general, upon receiving a reservation request for reservation of a virtual reality collaboration space, a virtual location for the collaboration space is reserved. Access is granted to requesting entities authorized to access the space. Permissions can differ for different invitees, e.g., such that only permitted users can access proprietary information presented as a virtual reality element within the collaboration space. The collaboration space can also be used to drop off virtual reality elements, e.g., from one user to another user.

  • Publication number: 20240062430
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards presenting an avatar in a virtual reality environment in different ways to different users, based on relationship data including a familiarity level and trust level with each other user. The familiarity level data and/or trust level data can be updated with each encounter with another user. The presentations of the same avatar can be different to the other users encountered at the same time, e.g., a lower resolution avatar presented to a less familiar and/or less trusted other user, a higher resolution avatar presented to a more familiar and/or more trusted other user. Audio volume and/or clarity may be similarly modified based on relationship data. A user having an encounter with another user may have a mirror view of the user's own avatar, and can improve or degrade the avatar's appearance (and/or aural output) during the encounter.

  • Publication number: 20240061895
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards obtaining a search query by monitoring a user group's communications, and presenting search results to the user group. A conversation thread is inferred by a system, e.g., a conversational search server of a cloud based system. The conversational search server determines a search query relevant to the conversation thread, and communicates with a search engine or the like to obtain search result data. The search result data is presented on devices of the users of the group, e.g., via a virtual agent. Search queries can be altered as a conversation progresses to provide updated and/or filtered results. For example, broad results can be narrowed as more information is obtained by the system as a conversation progresses. Search results can be interactive, such as to obtain more information for a result, or to obtain a consensus as to what the majority of a group selects.
