System for measuring how people actually watch TV.

US Patent No. US11540009B2 describes my largest contribution to TVision since starting there in 2018. The inventors listed on this patent are: the CTO, the Director of Engineering, Head of Data Science and Vice President of Product Management and myself. To summarize, the patent describes the device we deploy in our panelists homes. This device uses a camera, microphone, and local network analysis to determine who is in the room, what is being played on the TV, and if the viewer is paying attention. I was the lead designer of the Packet Inspection component of this patent (module 1702), but have worked on all of the different software components running on our devices.
