  • Patent number: 10127735
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for facilitating action by a user on a simulated object in an augmented reality environment. In some embodiments, a method includes, detecting a gesture of the user in a real environment via a sensor of the device; wherein, the gesture includes, movement of eye ball or eye focal point of one or more eyes of the user. The gesture can be detected by tracking: a movement of one or more eyes of the user, a non-movement of one or more eyes of the user, a location of a focal point of one or more eyes of the user, and/or a movement of an eye lid of one or more eyes of the user. The gesture can be captured to implement the action on the simulated object in the augmented reality environment.

  • Patent number: 9876751
    Abstract: Systems and methods for presenting a graphical visualization of user related content in a network or across networks are disclosed. In one aspect, embodiments of the present disclosure include analyzing the content from within the network or across the networks, identifying trending topics, and customizing the graphical visualization based on a given topic. The given topic can be user specified and/or can be based on implicit and/or explicit user interests or preferences. The given topic can also be administrator specified. The graphical visualization can present the topics as being connected to the given topic, where the given topic is presented as a center node and the topics relating to that given topic are arranged radially from the center node. The trending topics can change based on a configurable timeframe (e.g., minutes, days, weeks, etc.).

  • Publication number: 20160255037
    Abstract: Systems and methods for analyzing messages in a network or across networks are disclosed. In one aspect, embodiments of the present disclosure include a system for processing incoming messages from multiple web-based services. The system can include, a processing unit, a memory unit having stored thereon instructions which when executed by the processing unit causes the processing unit to perform a method which can, perform an action on an incoming message in accordance with a rule set to process the incoming messages. The rule set can be determined as a result of machine learning. in one embodiment, the action is performed by an independent service, the independent service being independent from the multiple web-based services.
