  • Publication number: 20190171351
    Abstract: Disclosed is a novel system and process for launching a messaging window such as a chat bot, especially in a mobile platforms such a smart phones and tablets. The process begins with displaying a web page with webpage contents in a browser window with a primary top bar and a display window. In response to receiving user input to scroll the webpage contents of the browser window are scrolled in a horizontal direction, a vertical direction, or a combination thereof. Also, a secondary top bar, as a previously invisible graphical element within the webpage contents of the web page is now displayed in substantial position and with the substantially the same appearance to look like the primary the top bar. In response to receiving user input in the vicinity of the secondary top bar, the system triggers a presentation of a messaging window or chat window.

  • Patent number: 8949377
    Abstract: The present invention is uniquely designed to interact with web retailer's customers with real agent reaction times as they give astute answers directly concerning web retailer's products and goals. The entire process is manageable through a third-party website which includes scripting, settings and other parameters selected by the web retailer. An artificial intelligence engine uses the combination of Bayesian probability keyword selection, natural language parsing and regular expression processing. The technology updates its response database with every client interaction-learning always takes place as it simulates a live agent, in real time. Every client interaction is recorded and analyzed, and as a result of the analysis the changes in the answer database are made.

  • Patent number: 6708203
    Abstract: A method is illustrated in the flow diagram 100 of FIG. 1. A processor 1001 renders a message 1025 for the processor operator's education during times of processor latency 1015, such as dialing onto any network, such as the Internet. This wait time 1017 is normally non-productive, and therefore can be used in such a way as to be non-invasive. It is also understood that this time is short, so as to make other actions, such as getting up from the desk, not attractive. Finally, even if the wait time was, or became, very short, the present invention provides the first message 1025 to the process operator that has been filtered. This filtering is a balance of the message owner's willingness to out bid other messages, the time of the day, the location of the operator, and finally the operator's likes and dislikes.

  • Patent number: 6564108
    Abstract: A method to present auxiliary lighting for enhancing a scene during a multimedia presentation. The method in photonic enclosure comprising the steps of: coupling one or more illumination sources over a network, so that at least one illumination source of the one or more illumination sources is capable of being uniquely addressed; displaying a multimedia presentation; reading a series of preprogrammed illumination identifiers stored in computer readable medium corresponding with the primary multimedia presentation; interpreting one or more illumination identifiers to set one or more illumination sources for a period of time and to set the address of at least one of the one or more illumination sources; and sending a set signal in response to the interpretation of the one more illumination identifiers to one or more illumination sources over the network. In another embodiment, a gaming helmet is disclosed as the photonic enclosure used to carry out the above method.
