  • Patent number: 11361770
    Abstract: Computerized systems are provided for determining an identity of one or more users that use a same audio source, such as a microphone. The identity of one or more users that use a same audio source can based on generating a list of participant candidates who are likely to participate in an associated event, such as a meeting. For instance, embodiments can generate one or more network graphs of a meeting invitee any only voice input samples of the meeting invitee's N closest connections are compared to an utterance to determine the identity of the user associated with the utterance. One or more indicators that identify the users who are using the same audio source, as well as additional information or metadata associated with the identified user can be caused to be presented.

  • Publication number: 20220171596
    Abstract: An audio stream is subjected to speech-to-text processing in order to obtain a textual representation of the audio stream. Hierarchical topic extraction is performed on the textual representation to obtain a multi-level hierarchical topic representation of the textual representation. A user interface actuator is generated, which allows a user to search through the audio stream. Different levels of the multi-level hierarchical topic representation are displayed to the user, based upon the speed of actuation of the user interface actuator.

  • Publication number: 20220166731
    Abstract: A method and system for responding to a message directed to a recipient includes receiving the message including a query from a sender, receiving an indication that the recipient is unavailable to respond to the query, and providing the query to as an input to a machine-learning (ML) model to identify information requested in the query. The method further includes obtaining the information requested as an output from the ML model, determining if access to the information requested is available to the sender, based on a confidentiality group to which the sender belongs with respect to the information requested, upon determining that access to the information requested is available, generating a response to the query that includes the information requested, and providing the response to the sender. The confidentiality group to which the sender belongs may be determined based on a degree of association between the sender and the information requested.

  • Publication number: 20220138697
    Abstract: In the present disclosure, artificial intelligence (AI) processing is trained and leveraged to learn user-specific insights that are contextually relevant to a state of a user communication. Contextual information about a state of a user communication may be collected and analyzed. That contextual information may be cross-referenced with an extensive knowledge graph that is constructed from user context data. Exemplary AI processing may further be trained to apply a relevance analysis to assist with processing described herein including generation and curation of data insights that are most relevant to a state of a user communication. In some examples, the data insight generation process may be augmented by pre-generating data insights that may be relevant to a user communication prior to occurrence of the user communication. Further technical examples pertain to the rendering and presentation of representations of data insights through a graphical user interface (GUI).

  • Publication number: 20220036708
    Abstract: An intrusion detection system detects when an unexpected person enters the environment of a user who is in a meeting. A privacy protection action which is an action that is to be taken in response to the detected intrusion, is identified. Audio and/or video systems are then controlled to perform the privacy protection action. Machine learning can be used, based upon user interactions, to improve intrusion detection and other parts of the system.
