  • Publication number: 20240087220
    Abstract: A server for providing content shared to an object is provided. The server is configured to establish communication between a first electronic device of a user and a second electronic device of another user and provide, to the first electronic device and the second electronic device, a virtual space and an object in the virtual space. The server selects, based on an input of the user, at least one content shared to the object in the virtual space by the other user of the second electronic device entering the same virtual space as the first electronic device. The server activates the object to identically output the selected content to at least one electronic device entering the virtual space. Based on the second electronic device leaving the virtual space, the server stops providing the content shared by the other user.

  • Publication number: 20240087221
    Abstract: An example electronic device may include a display module, a memory configured to store computer-executable instructions, and a processor configured to execute the instructions by accessing the memory. The processor may be configured to create a preliminary persona based on first information related to history of a target user, create a first persona from the preliminary persona based on second information related to a time and a space of the target user, apply the first persona to an avatar object in a virtual space and corresponding to the target user, and, when an occurrence of an event related to the target user is detected, create a second persona from the first persona based on the event occurrence and apply the second persona, instead of the first persona, to the avatar object.

  • Patent number: 11914712
    Abstract: A secure update is provided from a server to an end-point device. The server registers digital information, such as a name or a software package, and a verifiable key, such as a cryptographic hash, derived from the digital information. A publicly accessible transaction log stores the verifiable key in a block and provides an identifier of the block to the server. An end-point device receives the digital information and the identifier, and computes a separate verifiable key. The end-point device retrieves the verifiable key from the block of the publicly accessible transaction log, and compares the retrieved verifiable key to the separate verifiable key to determine whether the digital information has been compromised.

  • Patent number: 10367979
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes an image acquiring unit and a controller. The image acquiring unit acquires a captured image capturing a subject illuminated by light from at least one light source. The controller generates adjustment information for adjusting an intensity of the light from the at least one light source on the basis of a size of a pupil of the subject determined from the captured image.

  • Patent number: 10304312
    Abstract: The imaging apparatus comprises an image sensor and a controller. In the image sensor, charge accumulation and reading out in a plurality of pixels arranged in a two-dimensional array are controlled per line. The controller identifies one or more lines from lines of the image sensor to generate control information for controlling illumination light on the basis of the one or more lines identified.

  • Patent number: 10279744
    Abstract: A mirror-attached imaging apparatus includes a semi-transmissive mirror through which at least some incident light can pass, an camera configured to capture a subject by receiving light passing through the semi-transmissive mirror, and a support configured to attach the semi-transmissive mirror and the camera to a vehicle body. The semi-transmissive mirror is movable relative to the support, and the camera is attached to the support.
