  • Publication number: 20170358296
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, relating to synthetic call initiations and bailouts. In some implementations, a method includes analyzing, by a call initiating system, a real-time conversation between a first human and the bot during a phone call between the first human on a first end of the phone call and the bot on a second end of the phone call. The call initiating system can determine, based on the analysis of the real-time conversation, whether the phone call should be transitioned from the bot to a second human on the second end of the phone call. In response to determining that the phone call should be transitioned to a second human on the second end of the phone call, the call initiating system transitions the phone call from the bot to the second human.

  • Patent number: 8284207
    Abstract: A multi-pass method of generating an image frame of a 3D scene while eliminating the overdrawing of objects within the multiple graphics processing pipelines (GPPLs) supported on a parallel graphics processing system The GPPLs include a primary GPPL, and each GPPL, includes a color frame buffer and Z depth buffer. The GPPLs support an object-division based parallel graphics rendering process, in which the 3D scene is decomposed into objects that are assigned to particular GPPLs for processing. The multi-pass method involves, during a first pass, locally a Global Depth Map (GDM) which is provided to the Z depth buffer of each GPPL. This step involves the transmission of graphics commands and data for all objects in the image frame, to all GPPLs to be rendered. Then, during subsequent passes, a complementary-type partial image consisting of visible pixels only is generated within the color buffer of each GPPL using the GDM and a Z test filter supported by the Z depth buffer.
