  • Patent number: 11658929
    Abstract: A telecommunication and multimedia management apparatus and method that supports voice and other media communications and that enables users to: (i) participate in multiple conversation modes, including live phone calls, conference calls, instant voice messaging or tactical communications; (ii) review the messages of conversations in either a live mode or a time-shifted mode and to seamlessly transition back and forth between the two modes; (iii) participate in multiple conversations either concurrently or simultaneously; (iv) archive the messages of conversations for later review or processing; and (v) persistently store media either created or received on the communication devices of users. The latter feature enables users to generate or review media when either disconnected from the network or network conditions are poor and to optimize the delivery of media over the network based on network conditions and the intention of the users participating in conversations.

  • Patent number: 11659076
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for initiating execution of an application using trigger characters. In one embodiment, a computing device detects an entry of a trigger character in an input field of a first user interface presented by a first application. The input field is specified for detection of the individual trigger character based on a trigger rule for the first application. The computing device then identifies a string following the trigger character. The computing device then determines that the string matches a name of a second application installed on the computing device based on a list of applications installed on the computing device. The computing device then initiates execution of the second application. Subsequently, the computing device switches from the first user interface to a second user interface presented by the second application.

  • Patent number: 11604736
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a memory cleaning method, a smart terminal, and a readable storage medium. When the smart terminal is switched from a first display state to a second display state, an application to be cleaned is determined. A space to be cleaned is determined from a running memory and cache space occupied during running of the application to be cleaned. Files are removed from each of the determined spaces to be cleaned. In this way, an application to be cleaned is determined when the smart terminal is switched from a first display state to a second display state, so that an application to be cleaned can be directly cleaned in the background, and applications can be cleaned in real time without affecting the user's normal operation, which contributes to more timely cleaning of applications and an improved user experience.

  • Patent number: 11546285
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide a flexible environment for intelligently scoring transactions from data sources. An example method includes providing a user interface configured to generate a rubric by receiving selection of one or more one or more conditions, each condition identifying a tag generated by a classifier in the library of classifiers and for each identified tag, receiving selection of a value for the tag that satisfies the condition and receiving selection of an outcome attribute for the condition. The outcome attribute may be a weight for the tag or an alert condition. The method includes storing the rubric in a data store and applying the stored rubric to scoring units of a transaction. The method also includes aggregating scores for transactions occurring during a trend period and displaying the trend score. In some implementations, at least one classifier in the library is a rule-based classifier defined by a user.

  • Patent number: 11546375
    Abstract: External messaging attacks are detected using trust relationships. A profile is built for each target within an organization using extracted header data from multiple prior messages. Trust scores are derived for each sender of a message for each target profile, each trust score is derived from a degree and a quantity of communication between the respective sender and the target in the extracted header data. Incoming messages are received and a target and a sender of each incoming message is determined. A trust score is retrieved for the sender from the profile of the target for each incoming message, labels are generated for each of incoming message based on the respective trust score, and the respective label is applied to be visible to the target in association with the message for each respective message.

  • Patent number: 11383164
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for creating a non-curated viewing perspective in a video game platform based on a curated viewing perspective. For example, a user may be viewing a gameplay video of a video game. The user may be interested in viewing the same gameplay from a different perspective in the video game. Accordingly, a media guidance application may identify the video game in the video and retrieve video game engine data associated with the video game, to replicate, on a video game console, the gameplay depicted in the video. The user may be able to change the perspective (e.g., in-game position of the camera and the camera angle) within the replicated video game platform, via user commands. In response to receiving a user command to change the curated viewing perspective to a non-curated viewing perspective, the media guidance application may re-render the gameplay from the non-curated viewing perspective.

  • Patent number: 11372696
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure are directed to, among other things, generating reminders based on information from applications. For example, a first message may be received and a confirmation may be identified. Information that identifies an action to be performed and a trigger corresponding to the action can be detected from the first message and/or the confirmation. In some instances, a reminder may be generated based at least in part on the action and the trigger. An even corresponding to the trigger may then be detected, and the generated reminder may be presented based at least in part on the detection of the trigger.

  • Patent number: 11354500
    Abstract: In non-limiting examples of the present disclosure, systems, methods and devices for identifying relevant content in a natural language input are presented. An email may be received. A machine learning model may be applied to the email. The machine learning model may have been trained to rank sentences based on their relevance to a schedule meeting task. The machine learning model may comprise: an embedding layer for generating an embedding for each word in the email; a distinct sentence aggregation layer for aggregating the embeddings for each word in the email into a distinct embedding for each of the sentences in the email; a contextual aggregation layer for aggregating each distinct embedding for each of the sentences into a contextual embedding for each of the sentences; and a scoring layer for scoring and ranking each of the sentences based on their relevance to the schedule meeting task.

  • Patent number: 11321534
    Abstract: A method is provided to implement a conversational system with artifact generation. A middleware component receives a user input and determines whether there is sufficient information in the user input and a conversation space in a context storage of the conversational system to identify user intent associated with the user input. Responsive to the middleware component determining there is not sufficient information to identify user intent, a communications handler component sends a natural language query to an external data source via a natural language query (NLQ) interface and receives a natural language response from the external data source. The middleware component updates the conversation space based on the natural language response and returns a user response based on the natural language response.
