  • Patent number: 11902360
    Abstract: Method of dynamically assigning storage locations starts with the processor updating first user's home location data. Processor selects communication session between first user and second user and determines second user's home location data. Processor determines a session location data that indicates current storage location that stores data of communication session received from first and second client devices. Processor identifies available data storage locations based on first user and second user's home location data and determines whether to update the session location data based on an average of a distance over network fiber using the first user and second user's home locations, current storage location, and available storage locations. In response to determining to update the session location data, processor updates session location data to indicate one of the available storage locations, and causes transfer of data of communication session to one of the available storage locations.

  • Patent number: 11900430
    Abstract: A buy-online pickup-in-store (BOPIS) order at risk of abandonment is saved by converting the order to same-day delivery. A risk deadline is established using a combination of cognitive prediction, a customer-specific time frame, order constraints, and real-time data. The cognitive prediction uses a customer profile having historical data pertaining to previous BOPIS orders from this customer. If the product is not picked up by the risk deadline, a check is made to see if same-day delivery is feasible. If so, a notification is transmitted to the customer with proposed delivery details. The notification can be sent at an optimal time based on previous notifications sent to the customer and time constraints related to the order, and using an optimal communication channel based on previous engagement rates with the customer over different communication channels. Once confirmation is received from the customer, the product is shipped, saving the sale.

  • Publication number: 20240031645
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented for transferring an interactive feature from a first device to a second device. Two users may be consuming a media asset. Upon receipt of a command to active an interactive feature, a determination is made whether a user who did not activate the interactive feature is interested in the media asset. Upon that determination, a timer is activated that tracks an amount of time for which the interactive feature is active and a determination is made whether a threshold time period has been met. Once the threshold time period is met, a device associated with the user that activated the interactive feature is identified and the users are prompted to transfer the interactive feature to the device.

  • Publication number: 20240021211
    Abstract: A method for manipulating voice attributes includes receiving, by a processor, a voice sample of a natural voice of a user, analyzing, by the processor, the voice sample for at least one attribute of the voice sample, receiving, by the processor, entered values for the at least one attribute of the voice sample and applying, by the processor, the entered values to the at least one attribute of the voice sample. The method further includes adjusting, by the processor, the at least one attribute of the voice sample based on the applied entered values to generate a manipulated voice sample, replacing, by the processor, the natural voice of the user with a modified voice of the user based on the manipulated voice sample and outputting, by the processor, the modified voice of the user.

  • Patent number: 11868493
    Abstract: Working from home is becoming more and more commonplace. Ensuring that remote workers are following prescribed data protection measures becomes more important, and challenging. Safe and Secure Remote Working Environment (SSRWE) monitors an environment and determines if a non-compliant element is present. For example, a condition of working from home may be that no notetaking or electronic devices, especially ones comprising a camera, be visible to a system camera capturing the field of view in front of a display. If a non-compliant situation is discovered, the display may be redacted and/or other action taken to protect sensitive information.

  • Publication number: 20230421845
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described herein for efficiently “catching-up” a user that is interested in a media asset when that user has missed a portion of the media asset while consuming the media asset together with other people. The system may detect that multiple people are consuming a media asset and may determine, based on a respective profile of each person, whether that person is interested in the media asset. When the system detects that the user is disregarding the media asset, the missed portion of the media asset is stored if the user is interested in the media asset, and is not stored if the user is not interested in the media asset.

  • Patent number: 11836857
    Abstract: Systems, methods and instructions for creating building models of physical structures is disclosed. The building model may be a collection of floors defined by outlines containing regions that may be offset relative to a main region, and a collection of connectors. Connectors may have connection points for tracking, routing and sizing. Connectors may indicate elevation changes through georeferenced structural features. Signal elements may also be features that provide corrections when tracking. Feature descriptors are data that describes the structural configuration and signal elements enabling them to be matched to previously collected data in a database. User interface elements assist a user of a tracking device in collecting floor information, structural features and signal features and validating certain collected information based on previously known information. The height of floors may also be inferred based on sensor data from the tracking device.

  • Publication number: 20230388370
    Abstract: Method of dynamically assigning storage locations starts with the processor receiving a signal from a first client device associated with a first user. Processor stores a current location of the first client device in a historical database and determines whether a home location data associated with the first user matches the current location. In response to determining that the home location data associated with the first user does not match the current location, processor determines whether the first user has been associated with the current location at a greater frequency than the home location data based on the historical database. In response to determining that the first user has been associated with the current location at a greater frequency, processor updates the home location data associated with the first user to the current location. Other embodiments are described.
