  • Patent number: 11556814
    Abstract: One or more computing devices, systems, and/or methods for content recommendation based upon continuity and grouping information of attributes are provided herein. User interaction data specifying whether users interacted with content items, user attributes of the users, and content attributes of the content items is obtained. A data structure is populated with the user interaction data. The data structure is modified by inserting a set of sub-fields into the data structure for a user attribute. A sub-field is populated with a value representing an option of the user attribute. The set of sub-fields are an encoding of continuity information and grouping information representing options for the user attribute. The data structure is processed using machine learning functionality to generate a model. The model is utilized to generate a prediction as to whether a user will interact with a content item.

A first counter value associated with a level of activity of the client device may be incremented by a first number. One or more data packets may be transmitted to one or more servers of the cluster of servers. Each data packet of the one or more data packets may comprise an instruction to increment a counter value associated with the client device by a second number, which may be different than the first number.

  • Patent number: 11514500
    Abstract: One or more computing devices, systems, and/or methods for providing recommendations to travelers are provided. For example, locational data associated with a device of a user is evaluated to identify a set of location points at which the device was located over time. Location point pairings are generated from the set of location points, where a location point pairing may comprise a departure location point and an arrival location point. The location point pairings are filtered based upon various criteria to remove location point pairings that are not indicative of air flight travel (e.g., a location point pairing not satisfying an air flight speed threshold or an air flight travel distance threshold). The user may be determined as an air flight traveler that has recently used air flight travel to reach a destination location. A recommendation of content for the destination location is provided to the user.

  • Patent number: 11503041
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for utilizing sender-recipient pair data to establish sender-level trust in future communication. One method comprises receiving raw communication data over a network and testing the received raw communication data against trained machine learning data to predict whether the raw communication data is associated with expected communication data. The raw communication data is sorted for expected communication data, which is further analyzed for sender-recipient pair data and assigned an expected communication pair data score. Senders associated with an expected communication pair data score that meets or exceeds a threshold are labeled and stored in a database as trusted. As a result of the sender-recipient pair analysis, recipients at-risk for being scammed can be identified, senders misidentified as spammers can be properly classified, and machine learning techniques utilized for analyzing raw communication data can be fine-tuned.
