    Abstract: In one embodiment of the present invention, a collaboration engine is configured to display shared digital assets consistently across displays. The collaboration engine receives container metadata generated based on a first location and first size of a digital asset within a first scaled workspace displayed on a first display. In response, the collaboration engine computes a second location and second size of the digital asset based on the container metadata and the size of a second scaled workspace. Finally, the collaboration engine configures the second device to display the digital asset within the second scaled workspace based on the second location and the second size. Notably, the container metadata correlates to the appearance of the digital asset on the first display, and the appearance of the digital asset on the second display correlates to the container metadata. Consequently, the appearance of the digital asset is consistent across the displays.

  • Patent number: 11688392
    Abstract: A method for detecting freeze words includes receiving audio data that corresponds to an utterance spoken by a user and captured by a user device associated with the user. The method also includes processing, using a speech recognizer, the audio data to determine that the utterance includes a query for a digital assistant to perform an operation. The speech recognizer is configured to trigger endpointing of the utterance after a predetermined duration of non-speech in the audio data. Before the predetermined duration of non-speech, the method includes detecting a freeze word in the audio data. In response to detecting the freeze word in the audio data, the method also includes triggering a hard microphone closing event at the user device. The hard microphone closing event prevents the user device from capturing any audio subsequent to the freeze word.

  • Patent number: 11675475
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for identifying and marking content items that have or have not been shared to social media or content hosting services. The methods and systems use a marking engine to access a content item in a content library and identify the content hosts or social media sites to which the content item was previously transmitted. A marking engine may create a user interface, generate a thumbnail of each content item, and generate a graphical indicator for each identified content host. A marking engine may generate for display thumbnail representations of each content item with graphical indicators of each of the identified content hosts. A marking engine may sort thumbnails by metadata associated with the corresponding content items, such as creation time and date, location, share status, and other classifications and filters, to indicate which content items are ready to be shared to a content host.
