  • Patent number: 11017157
    Abstract: A method and system for using target audience based attributes for modifying an electronic dictionary is provided. The method includes detecting a communication application being enabled via an electronic device. In response, electronic communications of a user are monitored and analyzed with respect to the electronic device and user attributes. Linguistic patterns associated with the electronic communications are determined and with respect to additional electronic communications of said user and a weighted prioritization list of the common terms is generated and electronic dictionary software is modified accordingly. A specified electronic communication currently being entered into the electronic device is monitored and each term of the specified electronic communication is analyzed. In response to the analysis, suggested terms for entering within the specific electronic communication are presented via a graphical user interface of the electronic device.

  • Patent number: 10970330
    Abstract: A method is provided to search for images. The method includes identifying an object in a two-dimensional reference image. The method includes determining a three-dimensional reference orientation axis of the object based on at least one attribute of the object. The method includes receiving an input that requests a change in a three-dimensional perspective of the object. The method further includes determining a new orientation axis based on the input and the reference orientation axis. The method includes executing a search query on a set of two-dimensional images, where the search query is based on the new orientation axis and at least one attribute of the object. The method also includes displaying image search results that are ranked based on correlations with the new orientation axis and the attribute of the object.

  • Patent number: 10929596
    Abstract: A method and system for using vocal patterns of a user for modifying an electronic dictionary is provided. The method includes continuously retrieving vocal communications of a user and converting the vocal communications into text data. Common terms communicated by the user are selected from the text data and resulting linguistic patterns are determined. In response, a weighted prioritization list of the common terms is generated and electronic dictionary software is modified accordingly. A specified electronic communication currently being entered into the electronic device is monitored and each term of the specified electronic communication is analyzed. In response to the analysis, suggested terms for entering within the specific electronic communication are presented via a graphical user interface of the electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20200394605
    Abstract: A method for reduction of home-delivered package theft is provided. The method identifies a set of characteristics for a first set of packages delivered by one or more distributors. The method identifies a subset of packages of the set of packages having a negative delivery status indicating a package is undelivered. Based on the subset of packages with the negative delivery status, the method determines a risk matrix for package delivery by the one or more distributors. Based on the risk matrix, the method generates a set of delivery plans for delivery of a second set of packages by the one or more distributors. The second set of packages have a set of delivery characteristics. The method then selects a delivery plan from the set of delivery plans based on the risk matrix and the set of delivery characteristics of the second set of packages.

  • Publication number: 20200372382
    Abstract: A method, system, and computer program product are disclosed for collaborating among multiple electronically communicating AI (Artificial Intelligence) devices. Devices are detected and identified that are each communicable with a user and electronically communicating and interacting with their respective AI systems. In response to receiving a request or an instruction by a user at a device of the identified devices, each of the devices generate an answer to the request or instruction, wherein each of the devices are communicating with their respective AI systems. Each of the generated answers are rated from each of the identified AI systems and their corresponding devices, respectively. A threshold is defined for a final answer based on a plurality of factors. A final answer is selected that met the threshold. Using one of the identified devices, responding, by generating an audible communication with the final answer which communicates a response to the user.

  • Publication number: 20200364296
    Abstract: A method and system for improving audio detection is provided. The method includes receiving activation term data and text data of a multimedia file. The text data is analyzed and potential phonetic matches between a set of terms and the activation term are determined. An audio portion of the multimedia file is analyzed with respect to the potential phonetic matches and a resulting subset of terms is determined. A term is selected from the subset and flagged. An associated a control action for preventing an automated device from being enabled is generated and stored. Presentation of the flagged term is detected within the multimedia file being presented and the control action is executed such that the automated device remains in the deactivated state.

  • Patent number: 10771614
    Abstract: An upcoming event associated with a predicted time in the future is detected. A set of users of a database that have responded to events of the database that correspond with the upcoming event may be identified. Data on a current state of each user of the set of users may be gathered, after which a user of the set of users to respond to the upcoming event may be identified by analyzing the data and the database. It may be determined, using the database and the data, that it is approaching a deadline time at which the user must act in order to respond to the upcoming event by the predicted time. A reminder for the user may be generated in response to determining that it is approaching the deadline time.

  • Publication number: 20200168012
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system, and program product for providing a personal fuel efficiency for a vehicle of interest to a user. Responsive to receiving an input, a particular vehicle having a number of fuel efficiency attributes is identified. Driver attribute data providing information of personal driving behaviors of the user when driving another vehicle is accessed. The driver attribute data is obtained from a number of sensors on the other vehicle. Using the driver attribute data, a predicted impact on the number of fuel efficiency attributes is determined. The number of fuel efficiency attributes is adjusted based on the predicted impact to determine the personal fuel efficiency. The computer renders the personal fuel efficiency on a user device or on a display device located on the particular vehicle.
