  • Publication number: 20230034498
    Abstract: An object of the invention is to enable usage of data based on terms concluded with a user, and achieves both promotion of usage of personal data and privacy protection related to the personal data. A data distribution intermediary device acquires personal data metadata and generates service usage data metadata based on terms of service related to distribution and usage of the personal data. Then, the data distribution intermediary device detects a difference between the personal data metadata and the service usage data metadata, determines a necessity of conversion processing of the personal data based on the difference between the metadata, and converts the personal data to corresponding service usage data based on the service usage data metadata when the personal data is determined to be necessary to be converted.

  • Patent number: 10915186
    Abstract: An operation target device projects a display video onto a projection surface, which is captured by a camera. An operation detectable region specifying unit specifies respective regions where an operation is detectable and is undetectable in a range in which the display video is projected, based on image data captured by the camera. Finger and pen contact position detection units detect the operation to the operation object based on the image data. The operation target device displays the display video so that the region where the operation to the operation object is detectable, which is specified by the operation detectable region specifying unit, is distinguished from the region where the operation to the operation object is undetectable. The operation target device changes a display position of the operation object so the operation object is displayed within a range of the region where the operation to the operation object is detectable.
