Collaboration tool for sharing attention focused data using speech commands

Timely sharing and exchanging important real-time data and information is a crucial factor for collective team decisions and team collaboration. This is true across a wide range of the business domains, applications, and collaboration session scenarios.

    Traditional ways of sharing and exchanging information across team members such as using emails, storing documents on the shared drives, web conferences, and etc., in some cases, create additional overhead. It is not that effective when the collective decisions have to be made in real time.

Example 1: Financial application. During high volume trades sessions, the brokers need to be able do real time and fast exchanging of dynamic information regarding trade securities market values, trade pools, and etc.

Example 2: on-line collaboration sessionsbetween various teams working on the same solution. The audience has to follow the presenter through various topics across multiple documents. At some point, the presenter needs to illustrate his opinion with some pieces of data or graphs. Traditionally, this would require communicating to the audience where and how to look for the referenced pieces of information. In some cases, the source document that needs to be provided

just for that purpose is confidential. All of that creates unnecessary communication overhead.

    In summary, there is a need to have an efficient and fast way for exchanging information on-the-fly or in real time. As soon as pieces of information are discovered by one of the team members, this information would become available to other team members for their review and considerations. Proposed here is a method for real-time information and data exchange between team members.

This method is based on the user's eye tracker data processing and synchronizing identified focus content with issued voice commands.

Information or data becomes instantly available to other team members for their review and considerations as soon as it is discovered by one of the team members.

During the process of browsing documents, the focus and attention of the user can be captured by eye tracker.

The user's eye focus is on the particular content segment, and the user issues the attention voice command.

The data segment that was in user's eye focus area when the attention command was voiced is captured, further extracted and transmitted to the subscribed recipients.

The focus content can be transmitted to multiple subscribed recipients and across different devices and just with one voice command.

    The proposed method provides an effective way of sharing important information in real time across various devices and multiple subscribed users. The method explicitly extracts and transmits the focus area content to multiple users and devices. In addition, the method transmits metadata associated with the focus content such as document URL and coordinates of the focus area. Ba...
