  • Patent number: 11374945
    Abstract: A server interacts with a bot detection service to provide bot detection as a requesting client interacts with the server. In an asynchronous mode, the server injects into a page a data collection script configured to record interactions at the requesting client, to collect sensor data about the interactions, and to send the collected sensor data to the server. After the client receives the page, the sensor data is collected and forwarded to the server through a series of posts. The server forwards the posts to the detection service. During this data collection, the server also may receive a request from the client for a protected endpoint. When this occurs, and in a synchronous mode, the server issues a query to the detection service to obtain a threat score based in part on the collected sensor data that has been received and forwarded by the server. Based on the threat score returned, the server then determines whether the request for the endpoint should be forwarded onward for handling.

  • Patent number: 11054915
    Abstract: Terminal latency mitigation improves performance of networked consoles by embedding latency mitigation functionality in a terminal emulator. An enhanced terminal reduces perceived and actual delays by accurately predicting responses a remote service will provide to key press data. Latency mitigation may receive key press data, transmit it toward the remote service, locate a prediction, obtain a prediction string from the prediction, and write the prediction string to a display. A prediction indication may visually indicate the presence of a prediction string as opposed to an actual response from the remote service. After writing the prediction string, this terminal compares the response to the prediction string. When the prediction is accurate the terminal shows the prediction string without the prediction indication. When the prediction is inaccurate, the terminal replaces the prediction string by the response.

    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention provide an approach for optimizing a presentation of content on a display of a user device for n identified user. Application behavior metrics and user behavior metrics are tracked over time for the particular user based on the applications executing on the user device and the users interactions with the content presented by each application. Sections of content are assigned a priority based on the collected metrics which identify content sections (i.e., focus areas) most likely relevant to the user. Based on the assigned priorities, content from one or more applications is presented to the user in an optimal manner (e.g., not overlaid or obscured).

  • Patent number: 10904616
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention provide an approach for customizing media content being consumed at a location. For each of the viewers in a group consuming the media content at the location, a media profile having a set of media content preferences is created. These media profiles are aggregated to generate a composite profile that has a set of content restriction preferences for the group. As the media content is provided to and being consumed by the group, the media content is analyzed to identify any elements that have attributes that may be unsuitable to some viewers. If an element has a suitability attribute that violates the content restriction preferences for the group, the media content is modified to filter out the element.
