  • Patent number: 11449682
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods provide improved autonomous agents that are configured to respond to a user's query based on an emotion with which the query was expressed and a personality trait of the user. The agent may identify candidate answers to the query that are each associated with an emotion and/or a personality trait. The autonomous agent may utilize a predefined protocol set that indicates transitions between emotional states. A transition may correspond to an action associated with an emotion and/or a personality trait that, if performed, is likely to maintain a user in or transition the user to a preferred emotional state. The responses may be scored based at least in part their corresponding emotions and/or personality traits and in light of the transitions identified in the protocol set. A particular scored response may be selected and provided to the user in response to their query.

  • Patent number: 11197344
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. In some wireless communications systems, a transmitting device may identify a Radio Link Control (RLC) service data unit (SDU) to be transmitted to a receiving device. In some cases, the transmitting device may not have access to sufficient resources to transmit the entire RLC SDU. As such, the transmitting device may segment the RLC SDU into RLC SDU segments, and the transmitting device may transmit the RLC SDU segments to the receiving device. If an RLC layer at the receiving device receives one or more RLC SDU segments out of sequence, the RLC layer may initiate a reassembly (or reordering) timer. The RLC layer may reassemble the successfully received RLC SDU segments to be passed to upper layers. Once the timer expires, the RLC layer may declare that the missing RLC SDU segments are lost.

Patient demographic or alert information is attached to items within call histories associated with voice communication which are stored in the EMR and utilized for later analysis (e.g., analytics, patient progress, billing, reimbursement, staff scheduling, patient acuity, and the like). In embodiments, the context is declined, attached, or edited to items from the call history. In embodiments, the context is attached to items in the call history when the voice communication is initiated.

  • Patent number: 11159405
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosure relate to managing a communications system based on software defined networking (SDN) architecture. An SDN controller is provided in the communications system to manage a wireless distribution system (WDS) and a local area network (LAN) based on SDN architecture. The SDN controller is communicatively coupled to a WDS control system in the WDS and a LAN control system in the LAN via respective SDN control data plane interfaces (CDPIs). The SDN controller analyzes a WDS performance report and a LAN performance report and provides a WDS configuration instruction(s) and/or a LAN configuration instruction(s) to the WDS control system and/or the LAN control system to reconfigure a WDS element(s) and/or a LAN element(s) to improve quality-of-experiences (QoEs) of the communications system. Monitoring and optimizing the WDS and the LAN based on a unified software-based network management platform can improve performance at reduced operational costs and complexity.

  • Patent number: 11153423
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are mobile devices that are configured to send data to a memory station and to be charged by that same memory station. The mobile device receives a trigger signal from the memory station responsive to the beginning of a charge cycle, the trigger signal indicating to the mobile device to initiate the backup process. The disclosed systems and methods include starting a backup application on the mobile device responsive to the trigger signal. The trigger signal is generated and transmitted wirelessly by the memory station responsive to the memory station detecting the beginning of a charging cycle. In this way, the mobile device can automatically execute a backup program or application without user intervention.

  • Patent number: 11147108
    Abstract: Embodiments herein relate to a method for performing continuous deployment and feedback between a radio network node and a Continuous Deployment server. The radio network node is configured to mimic a behavior of a mobile terminal towards a core network. The radio network node sends a message comprising a request to establish an end-to-end connection with the CD server to a core network node. The message further comprises a mobile identity identifying the radio network node as a mobile terminal. The radio network node receives an access bearer establishing a user plane connection between radio network node and the core network node over a user plane interface, from the core network node. The radio network node establishes a communication channel between the radio network node and the CD server over the user plane interface and an external packet switched network. The radio network node exchanges information between the radio network node and the CD server over the established communication channel.

  • Patent number: 11146285
    Abstract: Batch compression management of messages. A message being sent to a batch for transmission is intercepted. The message is assigned to a batch pool, in which multiple batch pools are provided as sub-sets of the batch. The assigning of the message to the batch pool is based on a similarity of properties of the message with other messages and determined by looking up the properties in a batch pool mapping database. The message is added to the batch pool or a new batch pool is created for the message. A batch pool of messages is compressed using a dictionary of the properties common to at least some of the messages in the batch pool. The compressed batch pools are transmitted over an input/output channel.

  • Patent number: 11122001
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to systems and methods for facilitating proactive two-way communication sessions. One example includes proactively sending a message, where when the message is received, the message initiates a conversation with a user across a first messaging platform. When it is dynamically determined that the first messaging platform is unavailable, a list of prioritized alternative messaging platforms is dynamically generated. A prioritized second messaging platform is selected from the list of prioritized alternative messaging platforms, and the message is dynamically modified in accordance with standards associated with the prioritized second messaging platform. When a response is then received after sending the modified message on the prioritized second messaging platform, an agent is selected from a pool of agents to respond.

  • Patent number: 11086477
    Abstract: A system and method for facilitating automatic execution of user interaction in a virtual space are disclosed. For such facilitations, interactions initiated by users may be monitored and examined. The examination of the user interactions may be made based on various parameters that depend on user interaction levels in the virtual space. Based on results of such examinations, user interactions to be automatically executed in the virtual space while the users are not participating in the virtual space may be determined. In some examples, such determinations may be based on the user interaction levels in the virtual space and/or one or more virtual items and/or real-world currencies spent by the users for the automatic execution of the user interactions.
