Current Operating Systems (OSs) of devices such as desktop computers, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, provide applications with capabilities to serve information to users via builtin notification mechanisms. If the information presented by a notification is not useful or timely, the user’s current task is needlessly disrupted. Moreover, the user is likely to dismiss an inopportune notification quickly, thus reducing user engagement. The techniques of this disclosure enable smart delivery of notifications such that notifications are delivered to the user at an opportune time. On-device neural networks are utilized to make the determination of the opportune time. With user permission, the content of a generated notification is processed to determine whether it is to be shown immediately, by interrupting the user, or whether the delivery is to be deferred until an opportune time.
