  • Publication number: 20180046470
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and media for presenting a user interface customized for a predicted user activity are provided. In some embodiments, the method comprises: selecting users of a content delivery service, causing user devices to prompt the associated users to provide subjective data related to the user's intent when requesting media content items, training a predictive model to identify a user's subjective intent in requesting a media content item based on objective data received from a user device associated with the user and the subjective data received from the user devices, wherein the predictive model is trained to identify whether to present the user with a first user interface associated with a first user intent or a second user interface associated with a second user intent, causing the first user interface or the second user interface to be presented.

  • Publication number: 20150178626
    Abstract: A method for predicting reactiveness of MMI users comprises: reacting to a message with a mobile user device which is a receiver of the message, collecting ground-truth data (11) for a machine-learning classifier, extracting from the collected ground-truth data (11) a list of features (12) which determines a current or past context of the user, and each feature having a feature's prediction strength calculated as fraction of classes misclassified when removing the feature; selecting the list of features (12) based on each feature's prediction strength; defining a plurality of reactiveness classes (101); both the extracted list of features (12) and the reactiveness classes (101) being input to the machine-learning classifier; classifying (102) the user according to the defined reactiveness classes (101); predicting the user's reactiveness for the given current or past context of the user by determining the most likely reactiveness class via the machine-learning classifier.

  • Patent number: 8792863
    Abstract: Present invention refers to a method for collecting, organizing and storing annotations associated to a voice audio data. The method comprises providing the voice audio data; transcribing said voice audio data into text data; then, identifying in the text data a piece of information according to a pattern previously set; generating automatically an annotation containing the piece of information identified; assigning automatically a level of relevance for the annotation; asking a user for confirming the automatically assigned level of relevance; if the user does not confirm the automatically assigned level of relevance, assigning a second level of relevance instead of the automatically assigned according to a user input; and storing the annotation associated to the level of relevance assigned. A user can access later to these annotations to recall a phone call conversation or a voice message.

  • Patent number: 8439758
    Abstract: The invention refers to a method for encouraging a user to comply with his/her medication regimen, comprising the steps of: registering a group of parameters related to a medication intake of said user, which parameters include a time parameter and a user identifier; sending said group of parameters related to a medication intake of the user to a server (40); computing a time difference between said time parameter received and a time parameter associated to said user identifier previously recorded in the server; assigning said user with a pre-established number of points depending on the value of said time difference; and providing said user with information regarding his/her points obtained for the medication intake, including a summary of their medication compliance status using appealing personal awareness. providing symbolic rewards (e.g.

  • Patent number: 8345934
    Abstract: A method for automatically selecting and organizing a subset of photos from a set of photos provided by a user, who has an account on at least one social network providing some context, for creating a summarized photo album with a storytelling structure. The method comprises: arranging the set of photos into a three level hierarchy, acts, scenes and shots; checking whether photos are photos with people or not; obtaining an aesthetic measure of the photos; creating and ranking face clusters; selecting the most aesthetic photo of each face cluster; selecting photos with people until complete a predefined number of photos of the summarized album picking the ones which optimize the function: Of(C,C*,S,CSN)=?fAf(S)??fd(HCharacter(S)HCharacter(C?CSN)??fd(HAct(S),HAct(C*)); and then selecting non-people photos which minimize the following function Oa: Oa(C*,S)=d(HAct,(S),HAct(C*)); ordering all the selected photos in chronological order; and finally discarding all the photos which have not been selected.

  • Publication number: 20120284080
    Abstract: It comprises computing values of cognitive and personality indicators of users of a telecom operator by means of machine learning and data mining algorithms from information available in a telecom operator system extracted from Social Network Analysis metrics, Call Detailed Record information and commercial information of said users stored in an operator's Data Warehouse and Customer Relationship Management systems as well as information from previous surveys, or questionnaires, answered by a representative sample of users as an input of said machine learning and said data mining algorithms. The method involves building a complex computer model that infers the values of the psychological dimensions of said users by means of said machine learning and said data mining algorithms to obtain a multi-dimensional vector for each of the users.

  • Patent number: 7766794
    Abstract: A glanceable interface presented by a computing device to a user while the user engages in physical exercise can provide information regarding exercise-related data within the context of the user's exercise-oriented goals. In particular, the glanceable interface can display the difference between a user's current exercise level and a target level, optionally with instructions how to reach the target level. Once the target level is reached, the glanceable display can provide raw exercise-related data to the user. In addition, virtual competition can be based on a target-achievement-score that is based on the amount of time, and the accuracy with which, a competitor maintains their exercise level within a target exercise level zone. Competitors can be automatically selected based on the closeness of their target-achievement-scores to the user's target-achievement-score, so long as at least one competitor has a higher target-achievement-score than the user so as to further motivate the user.
