  • Patent number: 10757130
    Abstract: Assessing a risk of a message is disclosed. A sender specified by the message is identified. A measure of authenticity that the sender specified by the message is an actual sender of the message is determined using at least one sender model associated with the sender. The sender model was at least in part automatically generated using one or more previously observed messages. The measure of authenticity is utilized to perform a risk assessment of the message.

  • Publication number: 20190050471
    Abstract: An enhanced metadata structure and associated process is provided which captures and stores metadata gathered about the source and usage of a media asset or file. The source and usage metadata is integrated, such as by encoding within the enhanced media file, as the media asset is transferred and used. The integrated metadata accumulates, as a trail of source information and usage information in the enhanced media asset, and can be extracted upon arrival at a target computer system.

  • Patent number: 9009785
    Abstract: A system for managing adaptive security zones in complex business operations, comprising a rules engine adapted to receive events from a plurality of event sources and a security manager coupled to the rules engine via a data network, wherein upon receiving an event, the rules engine determines what rules, if any, are triggered by the event and, upon triggering a rule, the rules engine determines if the rule pertains to security and, if so, sends a notification message to the security manager informing it of the triggered event, and wherein the security manager, on receiving a notification message from the rules engine, automatically establishes a new security zone based at least in part on the contents of the notification message, is disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20140036022
    Abstract: Providing a conversational video experience is disclosed. In various embodiments, a user response data provided by a user in response to a first video segment at least a portion of which has been rendered to the user is received. The user response data is processed to generate a text-based representation of a user response indicated by the user response data. A response concept with which the user response is associated is determined based at least in part on the text-based representation. A next video segment to be rendered to the user is selected based at least in part on the response concept.

  • Publication number: 20140028780
    Abstract: Producing a conversational video experience is disclosed. In various embodiments, a definition data associated with a first conversation node associated with the conversational video experience is received via a user interface. A response concept associated with the first conversation node is determined based at least in part on the received definition data. A relationship between the first conversation node and a second conversation node associated with the conversational video experience is determined based at least in part on the determined response concept. An association data that represents the relationship is generated and stored.

  • Publication number: 20130080446
    Abstract: The claimed invention enables digital asset management that is responsive to a user's interactions with digital assets. Based on the user's interaction, the invention generates a ranking of the digital assets that is intended to reflect the value of the digital assets to the user. The ranking is based in part on the access frequency and recency, and the number and types of uses of the digital assets. An access hierarchy is derived from the ranking that stores the digital assets so that the higher ranked digital assets are more easily accessed than the lower ranked digital assets.
