Abstract

People discussing together during a work phone call refer to digital information like documents or files, information located on a site, emails etc. It is very likely that such information will be shared after the conversation, requiring some human intervention. Smartphone based communication can take the advantage of dynamically collecting required information and automatically sharing documents, emails and other resources. Voice recognition mechanism provides a seamless solution for defining the sharing needs with parties in a call, taking into account relationships, security needs and type of information while offering the easiest and fastest way to share information referenced in the vocal conversation.

Method and system to dynamically share documents mentioned during a human conversation

People discussing together during a work phone call may refer to digital information like documents or files, information located on a site, emails etc... The rate of the need to share referred information with the person we are discussing with is very high and the following sentences are very common during work conversations:

- "I'll forward you the email", "I'll send you the link", "I'll send you the presentation as soon as I arrive in the office but unfortunately there is a lot of traffic today", "I'll send you the new version of the file when I arrive in the hotel tonight… oh, better... please, call Mr X and ask him to send you the file, he should have it, maybe it is not the very latest one but it is a starting point".

The impossibility to send/receive the information at the time it is needed generates loss of time because people have to wait until the originator can provide the information or look for alternate source of information to receive it in a shorter time. The proposed solution addresses the described problem as described below.

While talking using a smart support (smart phone, communication application running on a computer ….) an application using voice in a recognition mechanism collects a list of keywords that will be used to look for the information to share (mail, file, link etc). The list of keywords is transferred to a Search Engine (running locally on the smart device or remotely) that looks for the information referred during the conversation in an Intelligent Storage Cloud. Indexing mechanisms and intelligent looking for algorithms can be used to have a fast search. When the search is finished, a Sharing List document contai...
