  • Patent number: 11316938
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for tracking content consumed by a guest subscriber consuming content with a host subscriber. A host device accessing content transmits a discovery request to identify nearby devices. A guest device in the vicinity receives the discovery request and transmits a response to the host device. As content is played back on the host device, the guest device may receive a content identifier and a progress time from the host device. Using the content identifier and the progress time, a guest device may transmit a request to a server to update a viewing history or subscriber profile associated with the guest subscriber and/or device. A guest subscriber may later resume a program or series from where the content was left on his or her own home or mobile device(s). Communications between a host device and guest device may be direct or via network server and may be secured as private.

    Abstract: Various embodiments of methods and apparatus for load balancing requests such that target resources serve a single client are described. In at least some embodiments, a single resource, such as a compute instance, is assigned to only one client, and that single resource is used for all subsequent connections and communications from that client. Some embodiments comprise a resource selection system which provides identifying information of an available resource, in order for a connection to be established between the client and the resource. The resource selection system then removes that identifying information from its memory. In some of these embodiments, a routing layer interfaces with the resource selection system to establish the connection between the client and the available resource. When a client is assigned to a resource, other clients may be prevented from establishing connections with the resource.

  • Patent number: 11240363
    Abstract: Proactive caching, at a client device (e.g., a feature phone), of transient assistant action suggestions for selective rendering by an assistant client application of the client device. A transient assistant action suggestion, when rendered via an assistant client application and selected, causes the assistant client application to initiate performance of a corresponding assistant action. In various implementations, a prefetched transient action suggestion can be a time-constrained suggestion that includes at least associated rendering restriction metadata that defines one or more temporal windows to which rendering of the time-constrained suggestion is restricted. Proactive cache refresh rate metadata can also be associated with transient action suggestion(s) and defines a duration during which the assistant client application is to refrain from interfacing with a remote system to prefetch updated transient assistant action suggestions.

  • Patent number: 11217243
    Abstract: Systems and methods of verifying trigger keywords in acoustic-based digital assistant applications are provided. A system can receive, from an application developer computing device, a request to generate a voice-based software application. The request can include a uniform resource locator (URL) associated with a service provided by the voice-based software application and an identifier corresponding to the URL. The system can identify a plurality of links that include the URL as a target. The system can determine a subset of the plurality of links having a respective character string that includes a reference to the identifier for the URL. The data processing system can compare the subset of the plurality of links to a threshold to determine a match level, and can determine a verification status of the request based on the match level.

  • Patent number: 11210136
    Abstract: Embodiments disclose systems and methods of an operating system module for a data processing accelerator (DPA). The operating system module can schedule jobs and manage resources (e.g., computing units, memory, IO bandwidth) of the DPA. For one embodiment, a system receives a request, by a DPA, the request sent by an application to execute a data processing task. The system schedules, by an operating system module of the DPA, one or more commands based on one or more kernels to complete the data processing task. The system generates, by the operating system module of the DPA, a completion signal upon completion of the one or more scheduled commands. The system sends a result back to the application acknowledging completion of the one or more commands for the data processing task based on the completion signal.

  • Patent number: 11200339
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a system, method, and apparatus for securing electronic personal identifying information. The system enhances data privacy, by minimizing the amount of authentic personal identifying information that is shared with a third party. Namely, the system includes a database of known websites, apps, etc. that require personal identifying information to sign up—and then classifies whether any given type of information is strictly necessary to the functioning of the website. The system then generates placeholder “dummy” data for any fields that are required for signup, but are not strictly necessary for the website to function. The system allows for creation of several user profiles that vary the amount of authentic personal identifying information to be shared, based on the user's preferences. The system therefore helps to secure personal information in the event that, for example, the website later has a data breach.

  • Patent number: 11197050
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for monitoring and controlling access to coexisting first and second networks, such as within a venue. In one embodiment, the first network is a managed network that includes wireless access points (APs) in data communication with a backend controller, which communicates with a client process on a user device. The client process uses indigenous radio technology of the user device to scan for coexisting networks, and report results to the controller. In one variant, the controller dynamically adjusts transmit characteristics of the AP(s) to manage interference between the coexisting networks. In another variant, the controller causes the energy detect threshold of the user device to be lowered so that it may detect WLAN signals when a coexisting RAT (for example, LTE-U or LTE-LAA) occupies the same channel and/or frequency. In another variant, the client process autonomously adjusts user device operation based on the scan.

  • Patent number: 11188612
    Abstract: A link request for a service is received. The link request includes an action parameter associated with an action that is to be executed in response to the link request. A determination is made as to whether the link request includes a service module identifier associated with a service provider that provides the service. In response to determining that the link request includes the service module identifier, a target page is determined and a link handler is generated. The target page is determined based on the service module identifier and the action parameter. The link handler is generated based on the service module identifier and the action parameter. The link handler is configured, when executed, to retrieve the target page. The link handler is executed based on the action parameter to retrieve the target page.
