  • Patent number: 10279266
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to a computer-implemented method for monitoring game activity of a game system. A non-limiting example of the method includes monitoring, by a processing device, game activity of the game system. The processing device determines characteristics of the game activity, along with expected characteristics of the game activity. The processing device analyzes the characteristics of the game activity and the expected characteristics of the game activity. Based at least in part on analyzing the characteristics of the game activity and the expected characteristics of the game activity, an entity that is controlling the game system is determined.

  • Publication number: 20190121355
    Abstract: Using an imaging device of a user device associated with a public user, an image of an autonomous vehicle (AV) operating in an area is captured. The public user associated with the user device is other than an occupant or controller of the AV. Image processing of the image is performed to extract a set of visual characteristics of the AV. A visual characteristic in the set of visual characteristics is insufficient to uniquely identify the AV. From a set of AVs a subset of candidate AVs is selected where each candidate AV in the subset of candidate AVs matches within a tolerance at least one visual characteristic in the set of visual characteristics, the subset of candidate AVs including the AV. A stop command is sent to the AV, causing the AV to execute a stopping operation resulting in a change in a velocity of the AV.

  • Patent number: 10259452
    Abstract: A method generates and implements a real-time amelioration action for ameliorating an imminent collision between a self-driving vehicle (SDV) and an object. One or more processors detect that an imminent collision by a self-driving vehicle (SDV) is imminent with a confidence C1, and determine whether the SDV has an occupant of occupant type P with a confidence C2. One or more processors identify an object with which the imminent collision by the SDV is imminent with a confidence C3, and then generate and implement, based on C1, C2, C3, and P, a real-time amelioration action for ameliorating the imminent collision between the SDV and the object.

  • Patent number: 10248815
    Abstract: A restricted access device such as a cellphone, a tablet or a personal computer, analyzes contemporaneous keyboard inputs of a password and gestures to authenticate the user and enable further access to applications and processes of the restricted access device. The gestures may be facial gestures detected by a camera or may be gestures made by an avatar rendered on a display of the device. The password may be shorted based upon the context of the authentication as well as any gestures occurring during password entry. The gestures may be learned by the restricted access device during the password entry process.
