  • Publication number: 20190149626
    Abstract: Methods and systems for attributing browsing activity from two or more different network-connected devices to a single user are disclosed. In one aspect, cookies generated by the browsing activity of different unidentified devices at a website are received. A random forest classifier trained on probabilities output from a Gaussian mixture model is applied to the unidentified cookies to determine a probability that two different cookies were generated by the same user. In some embodiments, personalized content is then delivered to the user based on the characteristics of the paired cookies.

  • Patent number: 10269001
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods and systems for executing a first transaction at a checkout system at substantially the same time that a second transaction is started at the checkout system. For example, a cashier can scan one or more items, adding the items to a first transaction. When all items have been added to the first transaction and a first customer is making a payment in the first transaction, the cashier can begin to add items to a second transaction, such that execution of the first transaction occurs at substantially the same time that items are added to the second transaction.

  • Patent number: 10239547
    Abstract: A pick cart includes a first end, an opposing second end, a first side and an opposing second side, a plurality of shelves each defined by the first side, the second side, the first side and the second side and a plurality of wheels attached to a bottom of a lowermost shelf of the plurality of shelves. The wheels are configured to make the pick cart mobile. A first extrusion has a length and is mounted to the first side or the second side of each of the plurality of shelves. The first extrusion includes a channel that runs along an entirety of the length of the first extrusion. At least one movable divider is configured to divide each of the plurality of shelves into compartments. Each movable divider comprises at least one slider that is configured to mate with the channel in the first extrusion.

  • Patent number: 10242384
    Abstract: A location-based product recommendation system uses consumer profile data, a network of beacons that emit unique identifiers, and a recommender to determine current product-correlated location information for a space in which a consumer's mobile device is physically present. The system may use the current product-correlated location information and the consumer's profile data to generate a recommendation for a candidate product for the consumer to consider. The system also may incorporate data from other interactions with products such as purchases, clicks on a website, etc. The system also may incorporate data generated on multiple channels (e.g., a product click on a personal computer at work, a mobile device location in a physical store, a product purchase on a personal computer in the home) into a single profile for the consumer.

  • Publication number: 20190063917
    Abstract: A photogrammetry system includes a photogrammetry rig and a plurality of cameras. The photogrammetry rig includes a support frame and a plurality of support arms. The support frame includes a plurality of joint members and a plurality of struts each extending between two of the plurality of joint members to collectively form a spherical polyhedron shape having a center focal point. Each of the plurality of support arms extends through a different one of the plurality of joint members in a direction following a different radial ray from the center focal point. Each of the plurality of support arms is selectively, linearly slidable and securable relative to the different one of the joint members along the different radial ray between a position closest to the center focal point and a different position farthest away from the center focal point.

  • Publication number: 20190066389
    Abstract: A photorealistic scene generation system includes a virtual reality (VR) headset, a VR controller, and a VR processor. The VR headset visually presents a user with a 3D virtual environment. The VR controller receives input from the user. The VR processor communicates with the VR headset and the VR controller and instructs the VR headset to display the 3D virtual environment having an interactive vantage point based on movement of the user based on positional data received from the VR headset and instructs the VR headset to display a source zone superimposed over the 3D virtual environment. The source zone provides visual representations of physical items previously selected for use in styling the 3D virtual environment. The VR processor is programmed to direct movement of one of the visual representations from the source zone and to move the selected one of the visual representations into the 3D virtual environment.
