  • Publication number: 20200097221
    Abstract: A control apparatus includes a receiving unit and a controller. The receiving unit receives an execution command for a predetermined process in a service. The service displays a post posted by a user in a chronological order in a predetermined direction and is usable for commanding execution of the process. The controller performs control to perform carousel-layout display such that, if the post corresponding to the execution command for the process received by the receiving unit includes multiple posts, the multiple posts and command information related to the execution command for the process corresponding to the multiple posts are displayed in the service in a slidably-operable manner in a direction intersecting the predetermined direction.

  • Publication number: 20200099643
    Abstract: A control device includes a control unit that performs control to execute specific processing associated with first conditions in a case where information posted by a user satisfies the first conditions in an individual chat in which one user and a chatbot participate and that performs control not to execute the specific processing in a case where only the first conditions are satisfied and to execute the specific processing in a case where second conditions different from the first conditions are satisfied in a group chat in which plural users and a chatbot participate.

  • Patent number: 8565390
    Abstract: The present invention relates to managing connections between one or more data network interfaces and one or more phone interfaces. In one embodiment, a manager process, running on a computer system receives one or more telephone calls from one or more users over one of the phone interfaces and then accesses one or more profiles associated with each of the users. These profiles have one or more service identifiers and one or more interactive response agent (IRA) identifiers associated with the respective user. A menu of the service identifiers is presented to the user. The manager process looks up an agent address of one of the IRAs that is associated with the service identifier selected by the user from the menu and establishes a session with the associated IRA. A two-way communication with the associated IRA occurs during the session.

  • Patent number: 8379808
    Abstract: The present invention is a computer system and method that manages connections between one or more data network interfaces and one or more phone interfaces. A manager process, running on a computer system having both data and phone network interfaces, receives one or more telephone calls from one or more users over one of the phone interfaces and than accesses one or more profiles associated with each of the users. These profiles have one or more service identifiers and one or more interactive response agent (IRA) identifiers associated with the respective user. A menu of the service identifiers is presented to the user. The system then looks up an agent address of one of the IRAs that is associated with the service identifier selected by the user from the menu and establishes a session with the associated IRA. Having done this a two-way communication with the associated IRA occurs during the session.

  • Patent number: 7756989
    Abstract: A method (and system) for managing and controlling allocation and de-allocation of resources based on a guaranteed amount of resource and additional resources based on a best effort for a plurality of customers, includes dynamically allocating server resources for a plurality of customers, such that the resources received by a customer are dynamically controlled and the customer receives a guaranteed minimum amount of resources as specified under a service level agreement (SLA). The best effort is defined in the SLA as a range of service to be provided to the customer if server resources are currently available.

  • Patent number: 7143180
    Abstract: To prevent system crashes, as by denial-of-service attacks, of TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) networks, this invention regulates the volume of TCP connection requests that await service at a TCP/IP connection control table. For this purpose, the usage of the system is monitored on a dynamic basis, the time-out value Tho is dynamically computed, and requests that have been awaiting service for a period of time that exceeds Tho are removed from the TCP/IP connection control table.
