  • Patent number: 11108844
    Abstract: Artificial intelligence based systems and methods are described for interacting with individuals via a web environment. A provisioning server is configured to receive a request from a web browser, executing on a client device, for a predefined imaging code stored in a memory of the provisioning server. The provisioning server responds to the request by transferring the predefined imaging code to the web browser. The predefined imaging code is configured to be executed by the client device to render an interactive graphical user interface (GUI) within the web browser on a display of the client device; load, into a memory of the client device, one or more images of an individual; determine, based on image analysis of the one or more images of the individual, one or more personal attributes of the individual; and, render the one or more personal attributes of the individual within the interactive GUI.
