The patent filed by Sony Group Corp. describes a method and system for feature discovery on a computer platform. The method involves determining the user's actions on the platform based on situational awareness information and personalized user data. This information is then used to decide when to present information about relevant platform features to the user, what information to present, and how to present it through a user interface. The user's response to the presented information is used to update the feature discovery logic, personalized user information, or situational awareness information.

The system includes a processor, memory, and executable instructions that work together to analyze the user's activities on the platform, apply feature discovery logic to determine when and how to present information about platform features, present this information through a user interface, and update the system based on the user's response. The method also involves considering various factors such as the user's history of platform use, current session, interactions with the platform, difficulties faced during tasks, and preferences for feature discovery presentation. Additionally, the system can utilize information from other users, social media influencers, media entities, or the platform maker to enhance the feature discovery process.
