A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11880410B2) discloses a computer-implemented method for proactive insight discovery. The method involves selecting insight discovery functions such as NFC scan, Bluetooth discovery, or beacon recognition based on the proximity of the user device to specific technologies. The processors enable a software module, receive information associated with the selected functions, determine key terms from the information, identify electronic data cards linked to the key terms, and present them to the user device based on user interaction with the selected functions. Additionally, the method includes functions for document scan, barcode scan, label recognition, facial recognition, and speech recognition, enhancing the range of insights that can be discovered and presented to users.

Furthermore, the patent also covers a computer system and a non-transitory computer-readable medium for proactive insight discovery. The system includes at least one memory with processor-readable instructions and a processor to execute these instructions. The functions performed by the system mirror those of the computer-implemented method, allowing users to select insight discovery functions, receive and process information, and present relevant data cards. The non-transitory computer-readable medium stores instructions for proactive insight discovery, enabling processors to perform functions like facial recognition, wireless scanning, and speech recognition. Overall, the patent introduces a comprehensive approach to insight discovery, leveraging various technologies and user interactions to provide valuable information to users based on their proximity and preferences.
