  • Publication number: 20140173696
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention disclose a method, computer program product, and system for managing participants of a web conference that follows a first web conference. A computer determines that a second web conference will use a web conference channel continuously following the completion of a first web conference using the web conference channel. The computer determines that a participant of the first web conference that is connected to the web conference channel at the start of the second web conference is not authorized to attend the second web conference and the computer disconnects from the web conference channel the participant that is not authorized to attend the second web conference.

  • Publication number: 20140067982
    Abstract: A first computer receives a first chat message from a second computer within a first chat session. The first computer determines an initial estimated response time to the first chat message, based on chat history of a user of the first computer, and sends the initial estimated response time to the second computer. The first computer then determines a subsequent estimated response time, which is based on the activity of a user of the first computer. The first computer adds the initial estimated response time and the subsequent estimated response time to determine a total estimated response time, which is then sent to the second computer.

  • Patent number: 8666167
    Abstract: The different illustrative embodiments provide a method, computer program product, and apparatus for managing an image. A determination is made whether an object is present in a subset of a plurality of images using an identification of the object. A determination is made whether the object is permitted to be present in the subset of the plurality of images using the policy for the user associated with the object responsive to a determination that the object is present in the subset of the plurality of images using a policy for a user associated with the object. A removal action of the object is performed on the subset of the plurality of images responsive to an absence of a determination that the object is permitted to be present in the subset of the plurality of images using the policy.

  • Publication number: 20140006601
    Abstract: A method, a computer program product, and a computer system for integrating social media and infrastructure monitoring of a service provider. The method, the computer program product, and the computer system include mapping a service provided by the service provider to components of an infrastructure of the service provider, requesting a social media service to conduct a search of consumer feedback regarding the service, receiving information of the search from the social media service, evaluating the service through analyzing the information of the search, receiving status information of the infrastructure from a monitoring system of the service provider, correlating a result of evaluating the service to the status information of the infrastructure, and providing the service provider with visualization of the result that is correlated to the infrastructure.

  • Publication number: 20130244791
    Abstract: Provided are techniques for modifying the action of a computer game based upon information corresponding to a user. Information may include, but is not limited to, the health and social status of a user and current events. Information related to a particular game player is collected and mapped to moves, scenes and scoring algorithms corresponding to a game. If necessary, moves, scenes and scoring algorithms in the game are modified to accommodate the particular player based upon the collected information.

  • Patent number: 8139034
    Abstract: A system and computer program product for automatically positioning a computer to an ergonomically correct orientation are presented. An optic sensor at a top of a computer monitor measures a distance and angle to a user's eye. This distance and angle, along with stored anatomical data for a specific user, are used to automatically adjust a base of the computer, thus positioning the computer's keyboard in an ergonomically correct alignment for the specific user.

  • Publication number: 20090258713
    Abstract: A set of controllers can be communicatively linked to a gaming console. One of the controllers can be programmatically designed as an active controller and another can be programmatically designed as a fail-over controller. A failure of an active controller can be determined. Responsive to this determination, the fail-over controller can be automatically substituted for the active controller.
