  • Patent number: 11281357
    Abstract: A method and system provide for entering text into a text field by determining complete-text terms, displaying the complete-text terms, and receiving a selection of a complete-text term as text to be entered into the text field. In some cases, a complete-text term can include all prior text entries used to determine the complete-text terms. In other cases, a complete-text term can include only a portion or none of the prior text entries used to determine the complete-text term. The determination of the complete-text terms can be based on a vehicle identifier. The determination of the complete-text terms can be based on one or more complete-text term selection-limiters, such a location, use, or diagnostic trouble code associated with the vehicle. The system can include a vehicle service tool that requests a set of complete-text terms and receives the set from a complete-text term storage device or an off-board processor.

  • Patent number: 11256738
    Abstract: Media unit retrieval methods, systems and computer program products are provided that allow a user to search for an item by iteratively presenting media units such as images representing items to the user and receiving user input consisting of selections of the presented media units (including possibly the empty selection). Features, or attributes, a user is interested in, for example semantic features, are inferred from the interaction and media units are retrieved for presentation based on similarity with user-selected media units, through sampling of a probability distribution describing the intent or interests, or combinations of approaches. Accordingly, the user-experience is akin to a conversation about what the user is looking for. Retrieval may be based on both selected and unselected media units and the selection may comprise making a selection with a single action. Further, a database of media units can capture similarity relationships for efficient media unit retrieval.

  • Patent number: 11237793
    Abstract: Methods and devices for determining whether a local version of content is stored on an electronic device associated with a user account on a backend system are described herein. In a non-limiting embodiment, the backend system may track and monitor the content stored on the electronic device using the associated user account. If an individual speaks an utterance requesting a particular content item, the backend system may determine, prior to sending the content to the electronic device, whether a local version is stored within the electronic device's memory. If so, the backend system may instruct the electronic device to output the local version, thereby reducing the amount of bandwidth consumed. The backend system may further be capable of predictively generating and then caching certain audio data to the electronic device.
