  • Publication number: 20210328961
    Abstract: Various embodiments relate generally to data science and data analysis, computer software and systems, and control systems to provide a platform to facilitate implementation of an interface, and, more specifically, to a computing and data storage platform that implements specialized logic to enhance speed and distribution of content in electronic messages as a function, for example, modifiable portions of the content. In some examples, a method may include identifying a performance metric values assigned to one or more portions of an electronic message, determining an equivalent to a portion of the electronic message to enhance a performance metric value, substituting the equivalent in place of the portion to form an adapted electronic message, and receiving data to set, for example, a time at which the adapted electronic message is to be published.

  • Publication number: 20210256041
    Abstract: Various embodiments relate generally to data science and data analysis, computer software and systems, and control systems to provide a platform to facilitate implementation of an interface, and, more specifically, to a computing and data storage platform that implements specialized logic to predict effectiveness of content in electronic messages as a function, for example, modifiable portions of the content. In some examples, a method may include receiving data signals to cause formation of an electronic message, determining a component of the electronic message, identifying one or more message performance criteria, characterizing the component to identify a component attribute, predicting the component attribute matches at least one of the message performance criteria, and transmitting the electronic message.
