  • Patent number: 11120477
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for using biometric data from an individual to determine at least one emotion, mood, physical state, or mental state (“state”) of the individual, which is then used, either alone or together with other data, to provide the individual with certain web-based data. In one embodiment of the present invention, a Web host is in communication with at least one network device, where each network device is operated by an individual and is configured to communicate biometric data of the individual to the Web host. The Web host is then configured to use the biometric data to determine at least one state of the individual. The determined state, either alone or together with other data (e.g., interest data), is then used to provide the individual with certain content (e.g., web-based data) or to perform a particular action.

  • Publication number: 20210257004
    Abstract: A method is provided for acquiring and transmitting biometric data (e.g., vital signs) of a user, where the data is analyzed to determine whether the user is suffering from a viral infection, such as COVID-19. The method includes using a pulse oximeter to acquire at least pulse and blood oxygen saturation percentage, which is transmitted wirelessly to a smartphone. To ensure that the data is accurate, an accelerometer within the smartphone is used to measure movement of the smartphone and/or the user. Once accurate data is acquired, it is uploaded to the cloud (or host), where the data is used (alone or together with other vital signs) to determine whether the user is suffering from (or likely to suffer from) a viral infection, such as COVID-19. Depending on the specific requirements, the data, changes thereto, and/or the determination can be used to alert medical staff and take corresponding actions.

  • Patent number: 10910016
    Abstract: A method is provided for identifying and displaying video data of a user, either alone or together (in synchronization) with other data, such as biometric data acquired during a time that the video data was captured/received. The method includes storing biometric data separately from the video data, allowing the biometric data to be search quickly to identify at least one value (e.g., a value corresponding to at least one biometric event). At least one biometric time-stamp (e.g., a time, a sample rate, a position within a plurality of values, etc.) linked to the identified value can then be used to identify a corresponding video time-frame, which can then be used to play the video data, either alone or together with biometric data, starting at a particular time (e.g., at a time that the event occurred, shortly before the event occurred, etc.).

  • Publication number: 20210005224
    Abstract: A method is provided for using at least self-reporting and biometric data to determine a current state of a user. The method includes receiving first biometric data of the user (e.g., using a camera on a mobile device) at a first period of time and self-reporting data shortly thereafter, where the first biometric data comprises at least changes in the user's pupil in response to first visuals (e.g., a series of different light intensities, etc.) (e.g., provided using a display on the mobile device) and the self-reporting data comprises a state of the user, where the self-reporting data is linked to the first biometric data. The method further includes receiving second biometric data at a second time and using the same, along with at least the first biometric data and self-reporting data, to determine (e.g., via AI, manually, etc.) a state of the user at the second period of time.

  • Patent number: 10643255
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for sending at least one advertisement to a reception device and providing additional communication data to a recipient that interacts with the advertisement. In one embodiment of the present invention, a provider of website data has control over advertisements that are provided to a recipient viewing the website data by allowing the sender to delete (or remove) an advertisement from the available advertisements. If a displayed advertisement is interactive, and the advertisement is interacted with, the advertising application will provide the recipient with additional communication date by sending a request for said data to the provider of the advertisement, wherein said request recorded by the provider of the advertisement and redirected to the advertisers website by providing the advertiser's URL to the reception device.

  • Patent number: 10360596
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for adding an advertisement to a digital message. An advertisement generator residing on a network host accepts digital messages from contributors and allows the contributors to select an advertisement to be displayed with their contributed messages. These digital messages may be sent to specified recipients or published on a Web site. Using stored personal data associated with the contributor and with the recipient of a digital message, in addition to the content of the message itself, the advertisement generator suggests advertisements to be included with the digital messages based on their contextual relevance. If the contributor-selected advertisement is provided by a third party advertiser, the message, contributor, and advertisement data may be utilized to compensate the contributor of that message for sending it to at least one recipient or posting it on a Web site.

  • Patent number: 10242713
    Abstract: A method is provided for processing and displaying biometric data of a user, either alone or together (in synchronization) with other data, such as video data of the user during a time that the biometric data was acquired. The method includes storing biometric data so that it is linked to an identifier and at least one time-stamp (e.g., a start time, a sample rate, etc.), and storing video data so that it is linked to the identifier and at least one time-stamp (e.g., a start time). By storing data in this fashion, biometric data can be displayed (either in real-time or delayed) in synchronization with video data, and biometric data can be searched to identify at least one biometric event. Video corresponding to the biometric event can then be displayed, either alone or together with at least one biometric of the user during the biometric event.

  • Publication number: 20190043097
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for adding at least one advertisement to a personal communication and providing additional communication data to a recipient that interacts with the advertisement. A sender network device communicates with an advertising application operating on a Web site to generate a personal communication containing at least one advertisement, where the at least one advertisement is selected from a palette of advertisements. In one embodiment of the present invention, the sender has control over advertisements that are displayed together with the personal communication by allowing the sender to delete (or remove) an advertisement from either the at least one advertisement or the palette of advertisements. If a displayed advertisement is interactive, and the advertisement is interacted with, the advertising application will provide the recipient with additional communication data in a format that can be understood by the recipient network device.
