The device learns the user—their preferences and their behavior shape how a communication device manages and controls incoming communication without the user selecting or programming the device.
Incoming communication becomes tailored to the user based on apriori data usage. A set of Fuzzy Logic rules that determine the consequential operational behavior of the communications device.
The device can learn when the user typically communicates with particular parties and when they prefer not to be interrupted. The user can block the communication from a particular party either from the learned behavior or by user selection. Prioritized communication can also be established.
