  • Publication number: 20180276727
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for automatically retrieving items for a user from an online product catalogue, the items being suitable for an upcoming calendar event, includes receiving, by a server, data from a curated list over a network, the data including curated classifications of apparel items. Trending apparel items are received by the server from selected websites for the upcoming calendar event. A deep learning module analyzes the data from the curated list and the trending apparel items to learn attributes associated with the upcoming calendar event. The server searches the online product catalogue for one or more selected apparel items which match the learned attributes. Information regarding the one or more selected apparel items is then returned to a client device of the user.

  • Publication number: 20180276731
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for automated product recommendations personalized to a user browsing a webpage of an e-commerce website or web application via a computer device. Image data of one or more product items displayed on the webpage is captured responsive to user input, and then sent to a server over a network. A software module that executes on the server analyzes the image data and segments it into one or more of attributes, constituent items, or objects of the one or more product items. The software module also receives media content feeds that contain images representative of style preferences of the user. The software module selects one or more specific items from a product catalogue of the e-commerce website or web application based, in part, on a visual similarity to the images representative of the style preferences of the user.

  • Patent number: 9042542
    Abstract: In a wide-area communication system, users or numbers in the system to be alerted are ranked so to improve the efficiency of the alert calls. Rankings are based on various factors, including whether two or more users are on the same active call, whether a user is on an active call, how recently a user ended a call, and whether a user recently missed a call. Within rankings, there may be multiple callers or numbers. These users may further be ranked, such as by determining which caller is expected to end a call first based on the current elapsed time of the call and the average call duration for that user or number.

  • Patent number: 8971511
    Abstract: A method and apparatus to provide speaker selection in a multi-party conference call is described. The method may comprise processing a speaker queue for at least one new speaker and monitoring when a number of active speakers is less than a predetermined number of active speakers. When less than the predetermined number, the method automatically, without human intervention, adds a new speaker from the speaker queue. A request for a new speaker may be received via a communication channel independent of a voice communication channel of the multi-party conference call. The request may be received from the conference endpoint via a voice communication channel of the multi-party conference call. In an example embodiment, new speakers in the speaker queue may be prioritized based a class of service associated with each new speaker. Priority may be given to a new speaker with a higher associated class of service.
