  • Patent number: 11615161
    Abstract: Described are computer-based methods and apparatuses, including computer program products, for dynamically enabling customized web content and applications. One or more rules are stored in a database. Default tag code is transmitted to a browser in response to a request from the browser, the default tag code including data that causes the browser to generate a tag module. An update is received from the tag module comprising data indicative of a visitor's interaction with web page content displayed through the browser. A condition associated with a rule from the one or more rules is determined to be satisfied based on the update. An action associated with the rule is performed, comprising transmitting custom targeted tag code to the tag module, wherein the custom targeted tag code includes data that causes the browser, upon execution of the custom targeted tag code by the tag module, to perform an action.

  • Patent number: 11615236
    Abstract: Systems and methods for machine learning (ML) based electronic document completion are described. A system is configured to receive one or more electronic documents to be completed for a user and provide the one or more electronic documents to an ML model. The ML model is trained to categorize the one or more electronic documents based on previously categorized electronic documents. The system is also configured to: categorize, for each electronic document of the one or more electronic documents, the electronic document into an electronic document category by the ML model; identify one or more fields to be entered by the user based on categorizing the one or more electronic documents; generate a dynamic form including the one or more fields to be entered; and provide the dynamic form for display to the user. Identifying the one or more fields to be entered may be based on a statistical model.

  • Patent number: 11610047
    Abstract: A baseline request produced from an annotated node of a document object model (DOM) tree and a label assigned to the annotated node are obtained. The label is assigned to a set of neighboring nodes of the DOM that perform a same function by recursively causing the system to, for each neighboring node to the annotated node in the DOM tree an additional request produced in response to performance of simulated human interaction with the neighboring node is identified, if the additional request matches the baseline request, the label is assigned to the neighboring node, and the neighboring node is selected to be the annotated node.

  • Patent number: 11604981
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and non-transitory computer readable storage media are disclosed for training a machine-learning model utilizing batchwise weighted loss functions and scaled padding based on source density. For example, the disclosed systems can determine a density of words or phrases in digital content from a digital content source that indicate an affinity towards one or more content classes. In some embodiments, the disclosed systems can use the determined source density to split digital content from the source into segments and pad the segments with padding characters based on the source density. The disclosed systems can also generate document embeddings using the padded segments and then train the machine-learning model using the document embeddings. Furthermore, the disclosed system can use batchwise weighted cross entropy loss for applying different class weightings on a per-batch basis during training of the machine-learning model.

  • Patent number: 11599917
    Abstract: A method and system is provided for facilitating affiliate link generation. A user enables the system by identifying a webpage on an affiliate web site. The system performs an initial assessment of the page to extract webpage information, which is compared to information stored in a database. If the extracted information matches stored information, a record of the webpage is displayed and an affiliate link is dynamically generated for immediate use. If the extracted information does not match stored information, a new record of the webpage is created. If the webpage contains product-specific data, a product-specific record is stored. If the webpage does not contain product-specific data, a non-product record is stored. An affiliate link is then dynamically created. The new record of the product and dynamically created affiliate link is added to the database for immediate use.

  • Patent number: 11600092
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and computer program product that enhances the efficiency and quality of matches between intellectual content generated by authors and published by peer-reviewed journals. Stable matches between works and stakeholders are modelled, in a nonbinding manner, via a stable-matching problem (Gale-Shapley) algorithm. Via bulletin-board systems acting upon deidentified data, the LONGITUDE function enables journal editors to proactively and reliably commit time and other resources to manuscripts that are most mature and otherwise meritorious. Via the SCRIMSHAW function, COMPASS assists authors in drafting and editing papers that are based on quality-control and journal author guidelines and hence more likely to be accepted by journals. Functions of COMPASS are divisible into two major domains: “matching” and “dispatching.” The “matching” is fulfilled by three subfunctions: LONGITUDE, DECK WEDDING, and FATHOM.

  • Patent number: 11593762
    Abstract: An online document system can allow users to participate in collaborative negotiation of documents stored with in the online document system. To facilitate negotiations between multiple entities (each potentially including multiple users with different roles in the negotiation), the online document system includes a permissions system that allows per-clause control over user's access to propose and approve changes to a negotiated document. Similarly, the user interfaces for viewing a negotiated document provided by the online document system to users can depend on the role of that user in editing the document and the current stage of the negotiation of the document. Finally, the online document system can track agreement between sides in a negotiation on a per-clause basis and can otherwise help facilitate the negotiation of the document.

  • Patent number: 11562016
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein for generating supplemental content for media content. One disclosed technique herein generates for display a page of an electronic book. A noun, and a word contextually related to the noun, are identified from the displayed page of the electronic book. Content structures are searched for a content structure that includes a matching object having an object name matching the noun. The content structure includes objects, where each object has attribute table entries. Upon finding an identified attribute table entry of the matching object that matches the related word, a new content structure is generated. The new content structure includes the matching object and the identified attribute table entry. A content segment is generated for output (e.g., for display on the electronic book) based on the new content structure.
