  • Publication number: 20190378047
    Abstract: Systems, computer-implemented methods, and computer program products to facilitate quantum domain computation of classical domain specifications are provided. According to an embodiment, a system can comprise a memory that stores computer executable components and a processor that executes the computer executable components stored in the memory. The computer executable components can comprise an input transformation component that can be adapted to receive one or more types of domain-specific input data corresponding to at least one of a plurality of domains. The input transformation component can transform the one or more types of domain-specific input data to quantum-based input data. The computer executable components can further comprise a circuit generator component that, based on the quantum-based input data, can generate a quantum circuit.

  • Patent number: 9750433
    Abstract: A method for communicating activity-related notifications to a user includes: receiving a record of activity events of a particular activity type performed by the user over a period of time; selecting a first time-based filter from a set of time-based filters; identifying a cluster of activity events in the record of activity events filtered according to the first time-based filter; identifying an early bound and a late bound on start times of activity events of the particular activity type from the cluster; communicating a notification of a first type to the user at a first time within a threshold time of the early bound on a day fulfilling the first time-based filter; and communicating a notification of a second type to the user at a second time within a threshold time of the late bound on a day fulfilling the first time-based filter.

  • Publication number: 20150294595
    Abstract: A method for providing wellness-related communications to a user including: at a computing system, processing a record of activity events performed by the user over a period of time with a communication engine to generate a first communication for the user, the communication engine supported within a native wellness platform application executing on a computing device affiliated with the user; displaying the first communication within a textual conversation feed within the native wellness platform application; receiving a first response to the first communication from the user through the textual conversation feed; generating a second communication upon processing the first response at the computing system; and displaying the second communication within the textual conversation feed, wherein the first and the second communications promote wellness of the user.

  • Publication number: 20150170531
    Abstract: One variation of a method for providing wellness-related communications to a user includes: applying a record of activity events performed by the user over a period of time to a communication engine to generate a first communication for the user, the communication engine supported within a native wellness platform application executing on a computing device affiliated with the user; displaying the first communication within a textual conversation feed within the native wellness platform application; receiving a response to the first communication from the user through the textual conversation feed; correlating the response with a human involvement trigger; based on the human involvement trigger, prompting a human coach to communicate with the user; and displaying a second communication within the textual conversation feed, the second communication entered by the human coach.

  • Publication number: 20150164430
    Abstract: A method for classifying motion of a user includes: during a second time interval, receiving a set of sensor signals from a set of motion sensors arranged within a wearable device; from the set of sensor signals, generating a set of quaternions corresponding to instances within the second time interval; generating a set of motion features from the set of quaternions; transforming the set of motion features into a second action performed by the user within the second time interval; and transmitting a flag for the second action to an external computing device in response to a difference between the second action and a first action, the first action determined from data received from the set of motion sensors during a first time interval immediately preceding the second time interval.

  • Publication number: 20140363797
    Abstract: One variation of a method for providing wellness-related directives to a user includes: at a computing device associated with the user, receiving a selection for a first wellness application and a selection for a second wellness application; receiving a first set of motion data collected by the computing device and a wearable device wirelessly coupled to the mobile computing device; generating a first directive for the user according to the first set of motion data and a first rule defined within the first wellness application; identifying a conflict between the first directive and a second directive, the second directive generated from motion data received from the wearable device according to a second rule defined within the second wellness application; and electing the first directive for presentation to the user in place of the second directive according to a conflict resolution scheme.

  • Publication number: 20140099614
    Abstract: One variation of a method for prompting behavior change includes: receiving a first set of user activity data collected on a wearable device and on a mobile computing device during a first time period; identifying a habit within the first time period based on the first set of user activity data; assigning a classification to the habit; receiving a second set of user activity data collected on the wearable device during a second time period; based on the second set of user activity data, determining a deviation from the habit during the second time period; and generating a behavior change prompt to modify the habit based on the classification of the habit and the deviation from the habit that exceeds a threshold deviation.
