Abstract

Disclosed is a methodology to dynamically supply predictive contents for consumer electronics (CE) devices and applications to customers who are using embedded web and third party (i.e., non-manufacturer specific) applications. The new methodology allows a manufacturer to apply collected business intelligence (BI) data and continue to send recommended and searched contents to the CE device user. This keeps customer engagement opportunities open for the device and application manufacturer, even while the customer is using a third-party application.

What issues/problems does your invention try to address?

Consumer electronics (CE) and application manufacturers often collect data about the users of their devices as applications are run.  Data points include the duration of use, what types (and how many different types) of and for what duration content was viewed, etc.  This business intelligence (BI) can help the manufacturer anticipate potential content that will be accessed and viewed on this particular application.  Predictions can vary from one developed application to the next.

Manufacturers desire total control of the upcoming content a customer will potentially consume.  This allows the manufacturer to maintain opportunities for customer engagement.
One major problem arises from the ecosystem described above when the customer uses web and third party (i.e., non-manufacturer-specific) applications.  When these applications are launched, the manufacturer has no consumer visibility through them; there is no way to know what types and for what d...
