Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR GENERATING NOTIFICATIONS BASED ON THE INTERESTS OF GUESTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES POUR GÉNÉRER DES NOTIFICATIONS SUR LA BASE DES INTÉRÊTS D'INVITÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and systems are provided herein for generating notifications based on the interests of guests. Guests may request notifications on their host's television, and the system will generate notifications based on the guest's interests and preferences as stored in the guest's user profile. In doing so, the guest will be notified of events of interest, such as when a favorite sports team scores a point or when an important scene in a favorite movie is playing. The system monitors the network of the apartment or house and detects when a guest device is accessing the network. The system then accesses the guest's interests and identifies a set of programs based on these interests. The system then monitors these programs and generates notifications on the display device when an event of interest has occurred in one of the identified programs.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour générer des notifications sur la base des intérêts d'invités. Des invités peuvent demander des notifications sur la télévision de leur hôte, et le système génèrera des notifications sur la base des intérêts et des préférences de l'invité, tels que stockés dans le profil d'utilisateur de l'invité. De ce fait, l'invité sera notifié d'événements d'intérêt, par exemple lorsqu'une équipe sportive préférée marque un point ou lorsqu'une scène importante dans un film préféré est en cours de lecture. Le système surveille le réseau de l'appartement ou de la maison et détecte lorsqu'un dispositif d'invité accède au réseau. Le système accède ensuite aux intérêts de l'invité et identifie un ensemble de programmes sur la base de ces intérêts. Le système surveille ensuite ces programmes et génère des notifications sur le dispositif d'affichage lorsqu'un événement d'intérêt s'est produit dans l'un des programmes identifiés.
