  • Patent number: 11361010
    Abstract: One or more computing devices, systems, and/or methods for generating a set of tips for an entity are provided. For example, users may create user generated content describing an entity, such as a user review for a consumer good, a location, an event, etc. Because a user may be unable to read and digest all of the user reviews for the entity, the user may merely read a few user reviews, and thus miss out on useful information. Accordingly, tip templates, indicative of how tips are linguistically/grammatically constructed, are applied to the user reviews to automatically extract a set of tips for the entity (e.g., “make sure to bring a rain jacket”). The set of tips may be filtered to remove undesirable tips, ranked based upon usefulness, and/or diversified to remove redundant tips. In this way, a set of useful tips may be provided to the user.

  • Publication number: 20210352030
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for improving interactions with and between computers in content searching, generating, hosting and/or providing systems supported by or configured with personal computing devices, servers and/or platforms. The systems interact to identify and retrieve data within or across platforms, which can be used to improve the quality of data used in processing interactions between or among processors in such systems. The disclosure provides a novel, computerized framework for automatically identifying and recommending socially-engaging photos to their creators for sharing. Execution of the disclosed systems and methods turns a tedious manual chore into an automated, software-driven process.

  • Publication number: 20200380049
    Abstract: The present teaching relates to a method, system, and programming for providing content. A plurality of content items and publication information related thereto are obtained. For each of the plurality of content items, one or more topics are determined in accordance with a model. The related publication information associated with each content item is analyzed to identify at least one source of a plurality of sources that published the content item. A distribution is generated of each of the plurality of content items with respect to the plurality of sources and the one or more topics of the content item, and a bias of a source with respect to publishing content is identified based on the distributions of the plurality of content items.

  • Publication number: 20200090062
    Abstract: Methods and devices for assessing the quality of user-generated content are described. In one embodiment, a method is disclosed for measuring the quality of a user-generated answer to a question by combining various factors, including question-answer surface word vector similarity, question-answer explicit semantic analysis vector similarity, answer-answer explicit sematic analysis vector similarity, query performance predictor, sentiment analysis, textual analysis of the answer, and reputation of the answerer. The method uses a learning procedure to determine the best algorithm for measuring the overall quality of the answer based on these factors.

  • Publication number: 20200065864
    Abstract: The present teaching relates to a method and system for selecting content. Upon receiving a request with an indication of a first piece of content for selecting one or more pieces of second content to be presented together with the first piece of content, a plurality of pieces of candidate second content are identified. At least one sentiment feature associated with the first piece of content is determined and the one or more pieces of second content are selected from the plurality of pieces of candidate second content based on the at least one sentiment feature of the first piece of content so that the one or more pieces of second content are emotionally compatible with the first piece of content. The one or more pieces of second content are sent in response to the request.

  • Patent number: 10535041
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a mechanism, which may be in a community-driven system, to assist a user, or member of the community, to articulate a request, such as a question, that is likely to receive a response, e.g., an answer to a question posed, from the user community. A machine learning approach may be used to generate a model, which model may be trained using previously-posted requests, e.g., questions, and response, e.g., answers. The generated model may be used to make a prediction, e.g., to predict a potential number of answers for a given question, which prediction may also have an accompanying confidence score. A prediction generated by the model may be presented to the user as the user is providing the input, e.g., typing a question. Such prediction may be generated for a partial question, e.g., as the question is being typed, as well as a completed question.

  • Patent number: 10120946
    Abstract: Users may engage with content that may invoke various emotions. For example, a user may find an image as inspirational, a social network post as funny, etc. Accordingly, content may be labeled with user emotion labels, specified by users that engaged with the content, to create labeled content (e.g., the image may be labeled as inspirational). Emotional transition triggers may be defined for users (e.g., 30 minutes of a user writing a school report using a word processing application). Responsive to a triggering of an emotional transition trigger, labeled content may be provided to a user (e.g., the image may be provided to the user as an inspirational break from writing the school report). In this way, content may be labeled based upon emotions that the content invokes in users, and such labeled content may be provided to users in a contextually relevant manner (e.g., a study break).
