  • Publication number: 20190273710
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for email management that leverages information derived from automatically generated messages in order to identify types of messages and message content. The disclosed systems and methods apply the information learned from decoding previously received messages to other messages in a user's inbox to fully, or at least partially decode the information included within such messages. The disclosed systems and methods analyze messages received in a user's inbox to detect message specific information corresponding to types of content in the message and the location of such content in the messages. The message specific information is then applied to other newly received or identified messages to learn message specific information about those messages. Based on such learning, information can be extracted from such messages in order to increase a user's experience and increase monetization.

  • Patent number: 10397152
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system, method, and non-transitory computer readable storage medium for predicting future messages. A processor receives a message sent to a user operating a client device, analyzes the message in light of previously identified patterns and scores assigned to scanned messages, determines a future message that should be received by the client device based on the received message, and transmits an item of information based on the determined future message.

  • Patent number: 10374995
    Abstract: As is disclosed herein, user behavior in connection with a number of electronic messages, such as electronic mail (email) messages, can be used to automatically learn from, and predict, whether a message is wanted or unwanted by the user, where an unwanted message is referred to herein as gray spam. A gray spam predictor is personalized for a given user in vertical learning that uses the user's electronic message behavior and horizontal learning that uses other users' message behavior. The gray spam predictor can be used to predict whether a new message for the user is, or is not, gray spam. A confidence in a prediction may be used in determining the disposition of the message, such as and without limitation placing the message in a spam folder, a gray spam folder and/or requesting input from the user regarding the disposition of the message, for example.

  • Patent number: 10366341
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards automatically learning user behavioral patterns when interacting with messages and based on the learned patterns, suggesting one or more predicted actions that a user might take in response to receiving subsequent message. One or more classifiers are trained and employed to predict one or more actions that a user might take in response to receiving the message. In one embodiment, the one or more predicted actions are provided suggested to the user as an action the user might take on the message. Messages may be rank ordered within a given suggested action based on a confidence level of the prediction.

  • Publication number: 20190158439
    Abstract: Disclosure includes an electronic message composition support system, method and architecture. Techniques including machine learning and natural language processing techniques are used to extend message composition capability and support and to provide feedback to a user regarding an error, condition, etc. detected in the user's message before the user sends the message, e.g., while the user is composing the message using a messaging application's user interface.

  • Publication number: 20190140997
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for improving interactions with and between computers in content searching, hosting and/or providing systems supported by or configured with devices, servers and/or platforms. The disclosed systems and methods automatically perform an implicit message search without requiring or actually receiving a user search query. The disclosed search framework automatically identifies of a set of messages in a mailbox that are related to a specific message m, and this message set is presented to the user from within the mailbox. The message set is retrieved without a user formulating and entering a search query, or without having to switch the state of the mailbox. The retrieved messages are provided as a type of “thread” functionality that provides a “thread” for those messages having related subject matter to message m.

  • Publication number: 20190140996
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for improving interactions with and between computers in content searching, hosting and/or providing systems supported by or configured with devices, servers and/or platforms. The disclosed systems and methods for efficiently monitoring and following up on delivered messages for which a user expects and/or requires a reply. The disclosed functionality provides a fully automated, personalized, easy and efficient way to identify and manage outgoing mail messages that require reply by marking outbound messages as RSVP messages, which are those messages determined to require a reply. Such functionality is based on the ability of the disclosed framework to distinguish between a “satisfactory response” (i.e., a response that includes the required information) and a response that is not.

  • Patent number: 10225590
    Abstract: Disclosure includes a system, method and architecture to monitor media content streams, e.g., streams of digital encoded media data such as without limitation audio and/or video data, from a number of media content streaming providers and identify media content items from those media content items being streamed by the media content streaming providers for inclusion in a personalized media content stream for a user. In a direct streaming approach, the media content items contained in a stream are available while each item is being streamed by the content provider. In a centralized streaming approach, media content items contained in each media content stream that is currently being streamed by content provider are available for a limited window of time, which can be dependent on buffer length.

  • Patent number: 10120946
    Abstract: Users may engage with content that may invoke various emotions. For example, a user may find an image as inspirational, a social network post as funny, etc. Accordingly, content may be labeled with user emotion labels, specified by users that engaged with the content, to create labeled content (e.g., the image may be labeled as inspirational). Emotional transition triggers may be defined for users (e.g., 30 minutes of a user writing a school report using a word processing application). Responsive to a triggering of an emotional transition trigger, labeled content may be provided to a user (e.g., the image may be provided to the user as an inspirational break from writing the school report). In this way, content may be labeled based upon emotions that the content invokes in users, and such labeled content may be provided to users in a contextually relevant manner (e.g., a study break).

  • Patent number: 10031908
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for suggesting messages that are automatically learned, personalized and diversified by leveraging messages sent by a large number of users in order to provide message completions that are as engaging as possible. The disclosed systems and methods learn from recurrent messages sent to a recipient, and suggest message completions based upon user behavior. The systems and methods compute a ranked list of suggested message completions after every key stroke or character input, and if the list satisfies a given confidence threshold, it is returned and displayed to the user.

  • Publication number: 20180196822
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for improving interactions with and between computers in content searching, generating, hosting and/or providing systems supported by or configured with personal computing devices, servers and/or platforms. The systems interact to identify and retrieve data within or across platforms, which can be used to improve the quality of data used in processing interactions between or among processors in such systems. The disclosed systems and methods automatically generate and provide an interactive rich set of personalized query suggestions within a unified framework. The disclosed systems and methods are able to integrate attributes associated with message data and metadata by transforming such attributes into facets that are combined with term suggestions and presented to the user in a unified manner. The instant disclosure provides an interactive search suggestion mechanism that narrows the search as the user interacts with the dynamically generated and provided suggestions.
