  • Patent number: 11218435
    Abstract: A method of managing electronic media content items starts with a server system receiving a first electronic communication from a first client device in communication with the server system over a network. The server system then generates a first media content item based on the first electronic communication and causes the first media content item to be displayed on a display screen of a second client device. The server system receives a request from the second client device to store the first media content item and stores the first media content item in a storage that is associated with the first user and the second user. The server system then generates a notification to be displayed on a display screen of the first client device that indicates the first media content item is stored in the storage. Other embodiments are disclosed herein.

  • Patent number: 11146563
    Abstract: Systems, computer program products and methods implementing policy enforcement for search engines are described. A policy engine receives a user identifier associated with a search query including one or more query terms. The policy engine receives, from a preprocessor of a search engine, an intermediate representation of the search query. The intermediate representation includes one or more index terms corresponding to the one or more query terms. The policy engine determines, based on a particular policy, if the user is prohibited from accessing data associated with a particular index term. In response, the policy engine modifies the intermediate representation, including negating the particular index term. The policy engine then submits the modified intermediate representation to a query processing module of the search engine, causing the query processing module to exclude content corresponding to the particular index term from search results.

  • Patent number: 11115936
    Abstract: Methods and corresponding systems for determining a transmit power in a mobile device include receiving, in the mobile device, a cell-wide power control parameter related to a target receive power at a serving base station. Thereafter, a transmit power is calculated in response to the cell-wide power control parameter and an implicit mobile-specific power control parameter. The mobile device then transmits using the transmit power. The cell-wide power control parameter can be a cell target signal to interference-plus-noise ratio, or a fractional power control exponent. The implicit mobile-specific power control parameter can be a modulation and coding level previously used by the mobile device, or a downlink SINR level measured by the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10701051
    Abstract: An authentication device includes a first login module and a second login module. Upon a login request to a first account among predetermined accounts which is accompanied by an entry of authentication information from a user, the first login module compares the entered authentication information with the authentication information associated with each of the predetermined accounts and approves the login request if the entered authentication information matches the authentication information on the first account. The second login module approves login of a second account if login to the second account is requested in a login session started by approval of the login request to the first account by the first login module. The second account has a pre-established proxy to approve the login request to the first account.

  • Patent number: 10672383
    Abstract: A method may include obtaining first audio data of a communication session between a first device and a second device, obtaining a text string that is a transcription of the first audio data, and selecting a contiguous sequence of words from the text string as a first word sequence. The method may further include comparing the first word sequence to multiple word sequences obtained before the communication session and in response to the first word sequence corresponding to one of the multiple word sequences, incrementing a counter of multiple counters associated with the one of the multiple word sequences. The method may also include deleting the text string and the first word sequence and training and after deleting the text string and the first word sequence, training a language model of an automatic transcription system using the multiple word sequences and the multiple counters.

  • Patent number: 10665025
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for representing a virtual object in a real environment, having the following steps: generating a two-dimensional representation of a real environment by means of a recording device, ascertaining a position of the recording device relative to at least one component of the real environment, segmenting at least one area of the real environment in the two-dimensional image on the basis of non-manually generated 3D information for identifying at least one segment of the real environment in distinction to a remaining part of the real environment while supplying corresponding segmentation data, and merging the two-dimensional image of the real environment with the virtual object or, by means of an optical, semitransparent element directly with reality with consideration of the segmentation data. The invention permits any collisions of virtual objects with real objects that occur upon merging with a real environment to be represented in a way largely close to reality.

  • Patent number: 10628463
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for applying geo-tags to digital media items. In particular, in one or more embodiments, the disclosed systems and methods identify a plurality of digital media items lacking location information and group the plurality of digital media items into clusters based on one or more characteristics (e.g., time of capture). The systems and methods can modify the size and numbers of clusters of digital media items utilizing a clustering algorithm, clustering parameters, and a cluster adjustment control to approximate a location where the digital images were captured. Moreover, systems and methods provide a user interface for quickly and efficiently applying geo-tags to the clusters corresponding to the location.
