  • Publication number: 20190377733
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are provided for conducting searches utilizing search navigation patterns. Search queries are received that include search terms that are of a particular type. It is recognized that at least one prior search session has been conducted that included a search query having search terms of an equivalent or similar type and followed a particular navigation pattern. Such prior search(es) may have been conducted by the user or by a different user and/or may have a navigation pattern that was affirmatively recorded by the requesting user or that was recorded by the system without explicit contemporaneous user instruction to do so. Upon identifying the navigation pattern associated with the prior search, the system effectively conducts a search session following the navigation pattern.

  • Publication number: 20190341050
    Abstract: A method for facilitating a remote conference includes receiving a digital video and a computer-readable audio signal. A face recognition machine is operated to recognize a face of a first conference participant in the digital video, and a speech recognition machine is operated to translate the computer-readable audio signal into a first text. An attribution machine attributes the text to the first conference participant. A second computer-readable audio signal is processed similarly, to obtain a second text attributed to a second conference participant. A transcription machine automatically creates a transcript including the first text attributed to the first conference participant and the second text attributed to the second conference participant.

  • Publication number: 20190236416
    Abstract: In some embodiments, the disclosed subject matter involves a system and method relating to using an ambient capture device including a fisheye camera and a microphone array to capture audio and video in an environment, for use in an artificial intelligence (Al) application. The device with fisheye camera may provide approximately a 360° audio and video view, at relatively low cost. An embodiment may utilize a speech and vision fusion model component. The speech and vision fusion model may be trained using deep learning to combine features from many different sources, including available sensor data from the capture device. A long short term memory (LSTM) model may inter or identify features such as, but not limited to: audio direction; vision detection and tracking; voice signature; facial signature; gesture recognition; and object identification. The fusion processing may be performed by a cloud server, enabling the capture device to remain less complex.
