  • Publication number: 20190212894
    Abstract: At an application executing using a processor in a touch-sensitive device, a detection is made that the touch-based gesture does not correspond to a perimeter defining a action, wherein the touch-based gesture is made relative to the touch-sensitive device. A set of possible actions intended by the touch-based gesture is determined. Using a disambiguation rule, an action is selected from the set of possible actions, wherein the selected action matches an action computed using the disambiguation rule. The selected action is caused to occur at the touch-sensitive device.

  • Patent number: 10348964
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments provide techniques for 360 degree video visualization. Various criteria such as user preferences, and/or crowdsourced information are used as triggers to signal a user device with indications for a direction of view recommendation. The direction of view recommendation instructs or suggests to the user to perform an action to change the viewpoint so that they can observe an object that they may otherwise miss. Additionally, a pre-navigated video may be created for the user. The pre-navigated video includes a sequence of viewing directions and point-of-view changes to include viewing of objects that are deemed to be of potential interest to the user. In this way, a user can have an improved 360 degree video experience which includes customized and/or crowdsourced recommendations.

  • Patent number: 10343387
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein enable forming a 3D object with a plurality of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), also known as “drones”, configured to carry and deposit 3D printing material, and to fly to a depositing location (e.g., fly, hover, or land) to print a 3D object. Specifically, at a central controller, a set of specifications for a 3D object to be printed are obtained. The central controller directs each of a plurality of UAVs controlled by the central controller to fly to a depositing location where a layer of 3D printer material is to be deposited, the location determined from the set of specifications. In response to a UAV of the plurality reaching the depositing location, the central controller further directs the UAV of the plurality to apply the layer of 3D printer material to the depositing location.

  • Patent number: 10348981
    Abstract: A user factor is analyzed to establish a context in which a user will view a video segment. A data source is selected from a metadata associated with an enhanced video segment. Replacement data is obtained from the data source, where the replacement data corresponds to the context. The replacement data is arranged in a layout, the layout being selected from the metadata according to a device feature of a device on which the user will view the video segment. A set of pixels that represents a first data in a data overlay in the frame is changed, the changed set of pixels representing the layout containing the replacement data. A modified video segment is transmitted, which includes a video content from the video segment and the changed set of pixels.

  • Patent number: 10339933
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein enable visualization of audio announcements using augmented reality (AR). Specifically, an audio system captures a set of broadcast audio announcements or messages at an originating location associated with a user as a set of audio files, which a speech-to-text transcriber transcribes to text. A natural language processing tool analyzes the transcribed text to determine, for each announcement, whether the announcement is relevant to the user. Relevant announcements are forwarded to a mobile device of the user. The user may access, in an AR environment, the set of announcements via a set of icons to display text of an announcement or to play audio of an announcement.

  • Publication number: 20190199856
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a method, system and computer program product for context sensitive contact substitution for mobile communications. In an embodiment of the invention, a method for context sensitive contact substitution for mobile communications includes selecting a contact disposed within a list of contacts in memory of a mobile computing device for use in establishing a telephone call with the selected contact through the mobile computing device. The method also includes determining a context of the telephone call and identifying in the list of contacts an alternate contact to the selected contact based upon the determined context. In this regard, the context may be a location of the mobile computing device, or a time of day of establishing the telephone call, to name two examples. Finally, the method includes establishing the telephone call through the mobile computing device with the alternate contact instead of the selected contact.
