Abstract

A method and system is disclosed for automatically correlating specific content in any presentation to interests and background of an audience and identifying content points in the presentation that are most important to the audience. Further, the method and system allows a user to identify a set of pages in the presentation and determines an amount of time to spend on each page based on the interest of the audience, a number of pages left, content on each remaining page and an amount of time left for completing the presentation.

Method and System for Enabling Predicted Attentiveness for Content Within a Given Presentation

Disclosed is a method and system for automatically correlating specific content in any presentation to interests and background of an audience and identifying content points in the presentation that are most important to the audience. Further, the method and system allows a user to identify a set of pages in the presentation and determines an amount of time to spend on each page based on the interest of the audience, a number of pages left, content on each remaining page and an amount of time left for completing the presentation.

In accordance with an exemplary embodiment, consider a user has created a presentation on a new product, wherein the presentation includes a set of pages with content pertaining to, but not limited to, product capabilities, architecture of how the product works and various channels through which the product is introduced to customers.

Firstly, the method and system understands the audience and a set of subjects that are important to a specific audience. The audience or meeting attendees are determined from calendar invite acceptances or through live meeting joining). The meeting attendees can be, but need not be limited to, a bunch of architects, a bunch of managers/sellers or a mixed crowd. The mixed audience are ranked based on interest levels and subject matter expertise.

Further, the method and system provides a set of capabilities in a presentation mode to indicate to a presenter the interests of a specific audience in correlation to the content in the presentation as well as a time to spend on each page of the presentation based on interests of the audience. For example, the method and system recommends to spend more time on a set of pages and to whip through a set of pages rather quickly if the meeting attendees are a group of architects. Thus, the method and system indicates to the presenter which pages and charts are most appropriate for the audience.

Also, the method and system uses a continually readjusted clock to indicate an approximate amount of time the presenter has on each page of the presentation. The amount of time indicated is different for each page.

FIGURE 1 illustrates a flowchart of the algorithm for estimating the amount of time the presenter should spend on each page of the presentation.

Figure 1

As illustrated in FIGURE 1, when a user turns the page, the method and system determines a number of discussion points left in the entire presentation that are appropriate to the audience, wherein discussion points in the content of the presentation has already been determined by the method and system based on the interest of the audience. The method and system determines a clock time left for the presentation based on a known end time. The method and system, then, divides a number of discussion points left by the amount of time left to determine an approximate amount of time to...
