  • Patent number: 9348897
    Abstract: A system, computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program, and computer-implemented method for providing scheduling suggestions to a user. A collection of intention objects is accessed. Each of the intention objects is a data structure comprising a plurality of activity attributes of an intention of a user to undertake an activity. Calendar data from a calendar of the user is accessed and an available time slot on the calendar is determined. In response to determining the available time slot, a suggested intention object is selected from the collection of intention objects based on a plurality of activity attributes of the suggested intention object. A scheduling suggestion is then presented to the user. The scheduling suggestion may include a suggestion to schedule an activity associated with the suggested intention object in the available time slot.

  • Publication number: 20150046211
    Abstract: A system, computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program, and computer-implemented method for providing a collection of intention objects to a user. A collection of intention objects is accessed. Each of the intention objects comprises a data structure including a plurality of activity attributes of an intention of the user to undertake an activity. A relevancy rank for each of the collection of intention objects is determined based on the plurality of activity attributes corresponding to each intention object. The relevancy rank may provide a suggested order in which the user undertake each respective activity. One or more intention objects of the collection of intention objects with a relevancy rank above a predefined threshold are identified. A graphical representation of each of the identified intention objects is then presented in a free form spatial user interface.

  • Publication number: 20150046210
    Abstract: A system, computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program, and computer-implemented method for generating an intention object. Activity data defining activity attributes of an intention of a user to undertake an activity is obtained. The activity attributes may comprise at least one temporal attribute defining a time constraint relating to the activity and at least one contextual attribute identifying a context relating to the activity. One or more content items related to the activity are obtained. An intention object is then generated based on the activity attributes, the intention object comprising a data structure including the activity attributes and the one or more content items. An additional activity attribute is inferred based on the activity attributes and the one or more content items. The intention object is then updated to include the additional activity attribute.
