Application: Keyword-based object insertion into a video stream (Patent ID: US20240098315A1)

The patent filed by Qualcomm Inc. describes a device with processors that can detect keywords in an audio stream, classify objects associated with those keywords, and insert them into a video stream. The device uses neural networks for keyword detection, object generation, and object classification, with options for determining insertion locations in video frames and distinguishing between foreground and background objects based on file type. The device can be integrated into various devices like mobile devices, vehicles, and augmented reality devices, and can handle live media streams received from network devices.

The device's processors are capable of adapting to different locations and situations, such as in a vehicle where objects can be classified based on the passenger's speech and location. Additionally, the device can send the video stream to display devices in other vehicles or shared environments displayed by extended reality (XR) devices. The patent also covers methods and computer-readable mediums storing instructions for obtaining audio streams, detecting keywords, generating objects, and inserting them into video streams, as well as means for performing these actions. The device's capabilities extend to determining insertion locations in video frames and adapting to different scenarios based on the user's speech and location.
