  • Patent number: 11947618
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for maintaining a collection service for websites. A user preference for content desired to be viewed by the user subscribed to the collection service is acquired. Content may then be searched and reviewed both within and outside a website subscribed to the service by the collection service to identify the content of interest to the user using an artificial intelligence system based on the acquired user preference and a rule set. The artificial intelligence system is a learning system that learns the content of interest to the user based on the user's actions. The identified content of interest is then presented to the user in a container within the website subscribed to the service, where the container is a “reusable construct” in that it may appear to the user within any subscribed website.

  • Patent number: 11947984
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems, and computer-readable media are provided for introducing a user to functions of various applications through interactions with an assistant agent. The assistant agent can correspond to an assistant application that can provide a user interface with multiple selectable elements, each of which can correspond to a separate application. When a user selects one of the selectable elements, a function of an application can be demonstrated to the user, in order that the user might become more familiar with functions of the application. In some implementations, a portion of the selectable element can be selected to cause information about the application to be presented to the user. This allows the user to have the option to try out or learn about an application before investing computational resources through downloading and installing the entire application.

  • Patent number: 11887011
    Abstract: In examples, a schema augmentation system for exploratory research leverages intelligence from a machine learning model to augment such tasks by leveraging intelligence derived from machine learning capabilities. Augmenting tasks include schematization of content, such as information units and groupings of information units. Based on the schematization of such content, semantic proximities for information units are determined. The semantic proximities may be used to identify and present potentially relevant information units, for example to accelerate the exploratory research task at hand. As such, users engaged in consumption of heterogeneous content (e.g., across client applications and/or content sources), may receive machine-augmented support to find potential information units.

  • Patent number: 11587568
    Abstract: A method for streaming action fulfillment receives audio data corresponding to an utterance where the utterance includes a query to perform an action that requires performance of a sequence of sub-actions in order to fulfill the action. While receiving the audio data, but before receiving an end of speech condition, the method processes the audio data to generate intermediate automated speech recognition (ASR) results, performs partial query interpretation on the intermediate ASR results to determine whether the intermediate ASR results identify an application type needed to perform the action and, when the intermediate ASR results identify a particular application type, performs a first sub-action in the sequence of sub-actions by launching a first application to execute on the user device where the first application is associated with the particular application type. The method, in response to receiving an end of speech condition, fulfills performance of the action.
