Abstract

We propose a method to control application dynamically by using a contents of data treated by the application and the personal data of user of the application. This invention helps you to know the information you want to know more immediately and more easily. And it helps you to concentrate on the work which you should originally do.

A dynamic application control method based on contents and personal data .

1.Background On the multi window system, the user can use more than one application  concurrently. For example, the user can use word-processor and movie-player  concurrently. Assume that he is writing a document using the word-processor  and watching a game of soccer using the movie-palyer.

 In such a case, he uses the word-processor mainly. But he sometimes  watches the movie-player to check the progress of the game. He wants to  consentrate on work, but he wants to know the progress of the game on real  time too. So he has to check the movie-player frequently. And if the  imortant scene is broadcast, he will enlarge the size of movie-player or  enlarge the sound. It is difficult to consentrate on the work for him.

If the movie-player can detect the important or impressive scene of the  game (taking his favor into considerration) and notify him on real time, he  will be able to consentrate on the work more.

2. Our Invention To solve this problem, we add the following functions to the applications  such as movie player.

2.1 Method to register the favor of user and action for each item.

We propose to prepare a method to register the favor of the user and action  that is executed when the favarite item is detected. For example, we assume  a GUI as follows.

This exmpale is for movie-player. If the user want to see a shot scene of  the coccer in detail, he can register the keyword 'shot scene', and  corresponding action 'Enlarge the size of the movie player'. If he likes‮..
