  • Publication number: 20220350710
    Abstract: Responsive to a request from a user device, a content server may perform an electronic discovery function. The request may include information on a quantity of data objects desired from a collection of data objects stored in a repository. Objects stored in the repository may be managed by the content server. The content server may determine a number of batches and process the collection of data objects into batches, each having a batch size. An efficient selection process may be determined and utilized in selecting data objects from each of the batches such that a total number of data objects selected from the collection is not less than the quantity of data objects desired. The content server may make a disk image of the selected data objects and communicate same to the user device over a network.

  • Publication number: 20220335796
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of sensors distributed about a space. Each sensor generates sensor data associated with properties of one or more people in the space. An automated response subsystem receives the sensor data. An unauthorized activity performed by a first person in the space is detected based on at least a portion of the received sensor data. In response to detecting the unauthorized activity, tracking instructions are transmitted that identify the first person associated with the unauthorized activity. A tracking device receives the tracking instructions. A device associated with the first person is detected. Over a period of time, the tracking device sends queries to the device and receives corresponding responses from the device. The tracking device determines positions of the device within the space over the period of time.

  • Publication number: 20220335241
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of sensors distributed about a space. Each sensor generates sensor data associated with properties of one or more people in the space. A gateway device receives the sensor data from each of the plurality of sensors and provides the sensor data to an automated response subsystem over a network. The automated response subsystem receives the sensor data. A first feature value is determined based on the received sensor data. An event score is determined based on the first feature value. The event score is compared to predefined response criteria. Based on the comparison of the event score to the predefined response criteria, an actionable event is detected, and an automated response to initiate for the detected actionable event is identified. One or both of an alert and instructions are provided in order to initiate the automated response.

  • Publication number: 20220335791
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of sensors distributed about a space. Each sensor generates sensor data associated with properties of one or more people in the space. An automated response subsystem receives the sensor data. An unauthorized event is detected associated with an adaptive-security device operating within the space and operating instructions are transmitted that identify security protocols to increase security of devices during the unauthorized event. An adaptive-security device operates within the space and receives the operating instructions. After receiving the operating instructions, the adaptive-security device determines whether a user is currently accessing secure information in the adaptive-security device. If the user is currently accessing the secure information, display of at least a portion of the secure information is prevented. If the user is not currently accessing the secure information, authentication requirements are increased for accessing the secure information.

  • Patent number: 11368588
    Abstract: This disclosure describes management of a contact center executing in a service provider network. The management may be performed by using one or more trained deep learning/machine learning (ML) models. The ML models may be trained using metrics and data gathered from the various services and systems in the service provider network used to implement the contact center. The trained models may be used for forecasting staffing needs, e.g., agents, for the contact center, scheduling agents, detecting anomalies with regard to customer traffic, e.g., received communications from customers, at the contact center, adherence of agents to the scheduling, and dynamically routing of received communications to appropriate agents (e.g., based on skills of the agent and other factors) for handling of the communications.
