  • Publication number: 20230305694
    Abstract: Aspects of the technology utilize an integrated computing device that supports a shared, communal interaction while still enabling a personalized experience. This includes a unified desktop experience based on presence, a shared family or common space as part of an ambient visual display, and seamless switching involving user interface elements when the display device is rotatable. A presence sensor detects whether someone is at or near the device. When at least one person is identified, specific information is surfaced on a display based on the current context, enabling the person(s) to interact with the device in selected ways. The device evaluates a current presentation state of the display and selects content items to present. The presentation state can include content currently being displayed, other context signals, or any other information associated with the state of the device, such as whether the device is locked or logged-in, for example.

  • Publication number: 20230196836
    Abstract: The technology provides a computing device having a human presence sensor module. An image sensor of the human presence sensor module captures imagery, and the imagery is not disseminated outside of the human presence sensor module to another part of the computing device. One or more machine learning models, each trained to identify whether one or more persons are present in the imagery, are retrieved from memory within the human presence sensor module. The imagery received from the image sensor is processed using the one or more machine learning models to determine whether one or more persons are present in the imagery. Upon detection that one or more persons are present in the imagery, the human presence sensor module issues a signal to an operating system of the computing device so that the computing device can respond to that presence by performing one or more actions.
