  • Patent number: 11132709
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system includes a processor(s) obtaining content displayed to the user on a computing device communicatively coupled to an input device(s) and/or output device(s). The processor(s) analyzes the content, to identify portions that represent types of content and tags the identified portions with one or more generic tags. The processor(s) generates a sentiment profile of the user by identifying interests of the user and identifying subjects of past electronic communications by the user. The processor(s) maps sentiments in the sentiment profile, to topics, based on the interests and the subjects identified. The processor(s) identifies an identified portion of the content relevant to a topic(s) mapped to a sentiment. The processor(s) generates and implements a physical change to the input device(s) or output device(s) to elicit a sentiment from the user, where the sentiment is mapped to the topic(s).

    Abstract: Techniques for machine learning analysis are provided. A machine learning (ML) model is trained to identify appropriate documents based on lexical knowledge of target groups. A lexical knowledge of a set of users is determined. Additionally, a first document of a plurality of documents is selected by processing the determined level of lexical knowledge using the ML model. The first document is presented to the set of users. A level of engagement of the set of users is then determined. Upon determining that the level of engagement is below a predefined threshold, a second document of the plurality of documents is selected using the ML model.

  • Patent number: 10936688
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system for enhancing dynamically enhancing query results. A processor(s) monitors computing activities performed by a user, via a client. The processor(s) analyzes the computing activities to identify data comprising a user profile: elements relevant to the user and relationships. The processor(s) generates a knowledge graph with the data. The processor(s) obtains input from the user. The processor(s) executes one or more queries on one or more data sources to retrieve standard search results. The processor(s) analyzes the input and the search results to identify segments of the input and the search results relevant to items comprising the data in the graph and defines links between the items, the data, and the segments. The processor(s) generates contextual search results that include the standard search results, a portion of the items, and a portion of the links and transmits the contextual search results, to the client.

  • Patent number: 10791067
    Abstract: In an approach to cognitive message response, a computer receives an electronic message from a message initiator. The computer creates a custom knowledge base associated with a recipient of the electronic message. The computer determines whether the recipient is available to respond to the received electronic message. The computer determines a status of the recipient based on the custom knowledge base and one or more types of unstructured data. The computer determines a status of the message initiator. Based on the received electronic message, the computer determines a content of the message. Based on the status of the recipient, the status of the initiator, and the content of the electronic message, the computer predicts a response of the recipient to the received electronic message. The computer creates a response to the received electronic message based on the predicted response. The computer transmits the response to the message initiator.

  • Publication number: 20200175891
    Abstract: Modifying a recipe for food based on a geographic origin of produce in the recipe is disclosed. A recipe is identified by a data processing system for a food dish, produce procured for the recipe from source(s), and determines a geographic origin where the produce was grown and an estimated transport time of the produce from the geographic origin to the source(s). A data processing system analyzes the recipe against ingredient(s) available to the user and aspect(s) of the produce, resulting in analysis result(s), modifies the recipe, resulting in a modified recipe based on the geographic origin, the transport time (may be estimated) and the analysis result(s), and makes available to the user the modified recipe.
