  • Publication number: 20190323846
    Abstract: A method and a system for systematic encoding of network of roads in a geographical area retrieves road data of the network of roads from one or more data sources and normalizes the road data to divide each road based on predefined first parameters. Thereafter, the encoding system divides the geographical area including the network of roads into clusters based on predefined second parameters. Now, the encoding system selects a major road in each of the clusters and creates sub-clusters from the clusters until the major road satisfies certain limits such as a first limit and a second limit. Finally, the encoding system encodes each major road and the corresponding incident roads contiguously or near contiguously in accordance with the clusters such that the encoding is contiguous, systematic and accurate.

  • Patent number: 8917844
    Abstract: Techniques for detecting and resolving feature interactions during calls are disclosed. In particular, a finite-state machine and a corresponding method detect when a feature that is invoked during a call would interact with another previously-activated feature, and ensure that both features are not active simultaneously. Three different techniques for resolution are disclosed: in one technique, activation of the latter feature is always refused; in a second technique, the former feature is always deactivated and the latter feature is then activated; and in a third technique, one of the two features is selected to be the active feature—perhaps based on priorities assigned to the features—and the features are activated and/or deactivated accordingly.

  • Publication number: 20140372162
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for contextual calendaring. Contextual calendaring can schedule meetings with varying states of blocking time slots based on users' behavior with respect to the participants, topics, and tasks or context of the meeting. For example, host H invites A for a meeting with the text “we must demo our ‘one-click video’ on Friday.” The contextual calendaring system knows that A isn't available on Friday, so can prioritize the task for A on Friday relative to the demo participants and schedule a ‘firm hold’ or can suggest an alternative person based on the topic and prior context who is available for the demo. The system can mine context information, and identify, based on the context information, a desired attendee and a priority. The system can place a soft hold on the calendar for the desired attendee based on the priority.

  • Publication number: 20140188991
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for authorizing third-party profile data sharing. The system receives a request to a request to share profile data held by a first person with a second person, wherein the profile data is of a third person. The system then generates a common context value based on an association between at least two of the first person, the second person, and the third person, wherein the common context value indicates how strongly the third person is connected to the first person and/or the second person. When the common context value is above a threshold, the system permits the first person to share the profile data of the third person with the second person.

  • Patent number: 8621003
    Abstract: An application-layer multicast-based (ALM-based), peer-to-peer conferencing system is disclosed that leverages the differing capabilities of the participating peer nodes. A conference call can be set up among peer nodes of three different types. A bridging node is capable of mixing individual audio signals that are associated with a call into a composite audio signal and of providing the composite audio signal to another node. A mixing-capable node is capable of mixing the individual audio signals that are associated with a call, but not of relaying those signals to another node. A mixing-incapable node does not support the mixing of individual audio signals. The conferencing architecture of the illustrative embodiment is able to account for the differences between the three types of nodes that are to participate in a conference call, resulting in an optimal allocation of bandwidth and processing resources.
