  • Patent number: 10762710
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a process that analyzes image content of an immersive video frame and identifies a first group of segments of the immersive video frame based on the analysis. The segments collectively span an entire space portrayed by the immersive video frame and the first group of segments spans less than the entire space. A size of a display region of an immersive video viewer is determined that spans less than the entire space and a second group of segments is determined based on the first group of segments and the size of the display region. Transport of the second group of segments, spanning less than the entire space, is facilitated via a communication network to the immersive video viewer for presentation, without requiring transmission of all of the segments. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200250494
    Abstract: An exemplary method includes initiating a conversation with a user for resolving ambiguity among a group of labels corresponding to an object in an image, wherein each label is associated with a confidence value; iteratively performing, when each of the confidence values is below a first threshold value, or two or more of the confidence values are above the first threshold value: using a wordweb to identify properties that distinguish between a first one of the labels and a second one of the labels, ranking the identified one or more properties; selecting the property having the highest rank to generate a question, and filtering at least one of the first label and the second label based on user input received in response to the question; and when only one of the confidence values exceeds the first threshold value, classifying the object using the label corresponding to the one confidence value.

  • Patent number: 10607233
    Abstract: In response to a posting of a negative review of an information technology item, external environmental context data is collected that comprehends processing environment attributes of an external process that interacts with the item in a reviewed performance of the item. An attribute of the item criticized in the review is correlated with an attribute of the external environmental context data as a function of contemporaneous time of occurrence. Degrees of likelihood as the principal cause of the negative review are determined for the attributes of the information technology item and for the correlated external environmental context data attribute. The negative review is determined to be a false negative review if the degree of likelihood that the correlated attribute of the external environmental context data is the principal cause is higher than the degree of likelihood that the criticized attribute of the information technology item is the principal cause.

  • Publication number: 20190313119
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, identifying a field of view (FoV) within a first frame of a video that occupies a sub-portion of the frame. A size is determined by subdividing a portion of the video according to a tiling scenario. Tiles overlapping the FoV are detected, and an updated size is determined based on an encoded version of the tiles and compared to a reference size. Responsive to the updated size being less than the reference size, the reference size is adjusted to the updated size, the tiling scenario is adjusted according to an adjusted tiling scenario, and the determining of the size is repeated based on the adjusted tiling scenario. Responsive to the updated size not being less than the reference size, a preferred tiling scenario is identified based on the adjusted tiling scenario for tiling the video. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10397373
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a client device obtains a list of client devices registered in association with a particular client application, and then detects listed client device(s) as proximate via a local communications interface. One of the proximate client devices is identified as responsible for sending an aggregated registration request message for renewing their respective application registrations with a server. In another embodiment, the server receives a registration message for the client application from a client device and detects that at least one other registered client device for that client application is proximate to the requesting client device. The server attempts to preemptively renew the registrations for both the requesting client device and the at least one other registered client device based on the proximity detection.
