  • Patent number: 11657832
    Abstract: A speech-capture device can capture audio data during wakeword monitoring and use the audio data to determine if a user is present nearby the device, even if no wakeword is spoken. Audio such as speech, human originating sounds (e.g., coughing, sneezing), or other human related noises (e.g., footsteps, doors closing) can be used to detect audio. Audio frames are individually scored as to whether a human presence is detected in the particular audio frames. The scores are then smoothed relative to nearby frames to create a decision for a particular frame. Presence information can then be sent according to a periodic schedule to a remote device to create a presence “heartbeat” that regularly identifies whether a user is detected proximate to a speech-capture device.

The server may be configured to import the different weather event data sets from the external weather event databases, perform a filtering process on the different weather event data sets from the external weather event databases, and generate the weather report based upon the filtered different weather event data sets from the external weather event databases and a geolocation.

  • Patent number: 11477650
    Abstract: Arrangements for dynamic enterprise center access control are provided. In some examples, a user device may be detected and current location and/or user data associated with the detected device may be requested. Upon receiving the location data, a current geographic location of the user device may be determined and an enterprise center at or near the geographic location may be identified. Received user data may be analyzed to identify a user and retrieve access preferences associated with the user. Based on the access preferences, a command to lock or unlock a door (e.g., permit or disable access) to an area within the enterprise center, the enterprise center in general, or the like, may be generated and transmitted to a computing device for execution. Accordingly, the system may activate desired locking configurations based on user preferences. Upon detecting that the user is no longer at the enterprise center, a command to return to default settings may be generated, transmitted and executed.

  • Patent number: 11457032
    Abstract: In an approach, a processor receives from a network device a request. A processor obtains from a database a device profile for the network device. A processor determines whether the device profile of the network device has a data usage pattern related to data identified by a data identifier. In response to determining the device profile has a related data usage pattern, a processor receives the related data usage pattern from the database. In response to determining the device profile does not have a related data usage pattern, a processor obtains a device type profile from the database. A processor classifies the data usage request based on at least one of the device profile and the device type profile. A processor executes a security action based on the classification of the data usage request. A processor stores the data usage request and executed security action to the database.

  • Patent number: 11444952
    Abstract: A control circuit receives personally identifiable information that corresponds to a particular entity. The control circuit uses that personally identifiable information to access a block chain ledger that serves as an identity block chain ledger. The control circuit then receives a synthetic identifier from the block chain ledger. This synthetic identifier correlates to the aforementioned personally identifiable information and also correlates to other data that corresponds to the particular entity and which other data is stored in a data storage element other than the block chain ledger.

  • Patent number: 11353625
    Abstract: A weather forecasting system has weather forecasting logic that receives weather data from a satellite or other source, such as radar. The weather forecasting logic processes such data to identify cumulus clouds. For each cumulus cloud identified, the weather forecasting logic applies interest field tests and feeds the results into formulas derived based on measurements from current and past weather events. The model determines a score indicating the likelihood of the cumulus cloud forming precipitation and a score indicating the likelihood of the cumulus cloud forming lightning in the future within a certain time period. Based on such scores, the weather forecasting logic predicts in which geographic regions the identified cumulus cloud will produce precipitation and/or lightning during the time period. The predictions of the weather forecasting logic may then be used to provide a weather map thereby providing users with a graphical illustration of the areas.
