Source-Based Alert and Feedback System for Items of Current Interest via a Network
A method has been developed to update and enhance computer-based “propagation engines” by moving the alert input from networked computer screens directly onto the source such as video cameras or cell phones, and to provide their human operators with useful real-time feedback. This approach allows end-users access to news, live video, and other time-critical information faster than methods currently available. This work complements earlier development in this area made at Interval Research Corporation and improves the overall utility and functionality for both the alert provider and end-users.
Helps end-users find live events on a network “as they happen.”
Enables news events to quickly “bubble up” a ranking list.
Provides the human operator providing the alert with useful, real-time feedback.
Provides end-users with the most real-time and up-to-date information possible.
Live video, live webcasting, (e.g., concerts and bands, lectures and conferences, social justice and activism, spontaneous events).
