  • Patent number: 11082373
    Abstract: Disclosed are various approaches for dynamically creating content to present to a user based on an identified intent, or other context, associated with a message (e.g., email). A message that is received from a message server can be analyzed to identify the message content within the message prior to distributing to the recipient client device. Trained intent identification models can be applied to the identified message content to determine an intent, or other type of context, associated with the message. Upon identifying the intent, the message header can be modified to include the intent prior to forwarding the message to the recipient client device. The client device can then display a user interface including the message and a user interface element corresponding to a third-party service. The user interface element can be dynamically generated to include an action component that upon selection, triggers an action associated with the intent.

  • Patent number: 10855633
    Abstract: A method of messaging control is implemented in a plant wide monitoring apparatus. A computer based framework infrastructure communicates with monitoring applications throughout the plant that are implemented on computers, monitors and computer-based applications. Sensors are placed on machinery and monitors receive sensor signals and generate event signals in response to defined physical occurrences, such as when vibration in a machine is exceeding a defined limit or a sensor is failing. A messaging application in the framework infrastructure generates messages corresponding to the event signals. The messages are transmitted to users based on send rules and suppression rules, which are user configurable. The send rules identify messages to be sent or not sent to a particular user based on characteristics of event signals. The suppression rules prevent the transmission of a message based on both the content of a particular event signal plus an external factor, such as a prior event signal.

  • Patent number: 10477362
    Abstract: Techniques are described for providing cross-network communication between a telephone network and a radio network. For example, implementations can operate to provide two-way communication between a mobile radio device and a telephone, computing device, and/or other suitable device that connects to a telephone network, by creating two-way communications between a mobile radio network and a telephone network. This inter-communication between the two networks enables landline telephones and mobile devices that are connected to a telephone network to communicate with radio devices that are connected to radio network. Implementations provide a portal service and one or more voice radio interfaces (VRIs). The portal service can employ an interactive voice response system as a user interface, enabling a user calling in from a telephone network to provide information that is used to establish communications with radio devices connected to radio network. The VRIs intermediate communications between the networks.
