  • Patent number: 9912775
    Abstract: Various systems and methods for transmitting a message to a secondary computing device are described herein. An apparatus comprises a context processing module, a context-aware message mode module, and a message retrieval module. The context processing module retrieves a context of a user of a primary computing device. The context-aware message mode module identifies a message mode for communicating with a secondary computing device of the user based on the context. A message retrieval receives a communication message at the primary computing device, determines that the communication message is to be transmitted to the secondary computing device of the user based on the message mode, and based on the determining, translates the communication message into a translated message according to the message mode and transmits the translated message to the secondary computing device from the primary computing device.

  • Patent number: 9106908
    Abstract: Generally, this disclosure provides methods and systems for real-time video communication with three dimensional perception image rendering through generated parallax effects based on identification, segmentation and tracking of foreground and background layers of an image. The system may include an image segmentation module configured to segment a current local video frame into a local foreground layer and a local background layer and to generate a local foreground mask based on an estimated boundary between the local foreground layer and the local background layer; a face tracking module configured to track a position of a local user's face; a background layer estimation module configured to estimate a remote background layer; and an image rendering module configured to render a 3D perception image based on the estimated remote background layer, the current remote video frame and the remote foreground mask.

  • Publication number: 20140344687
    Abstract: Examples are disclosed for interpreting a natural user interface (UI) input event. In some examples, sensor information may be received during a command for an application. The command input may be interpreted as a natural UI input event. For some examples, context information related to the command input may cause a context to be associated with the natural UI input event. The context may then cause a change to how media content may be retrieved for the application. Other examples are described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20140215507
    Abstract: Various embodiments are directed to a media processing device that can create a personalized passive viewing experience for a user. A personalization engine may determine viewer preferences based on multiple factors including past viewing behavior, web-browsing history, calendar event topics, and email data topics. The viewer preferences may then be formed into a user profile. A content aggregator component may then search multiple content sources for content compatible with the user profile. The content aggregator component may save found content or pointers to the content for later reference. The personalization engine may organize the saved content into a series of individual content items which may be presented on a display. Other embodiments are described and claimed.
