  • Publication number: 20190057068
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes techniques for adding a marker to a second document, the marker corresponding to a marker in a first document. The process may include identifying a token in a first document associated with a marker based upon a location of the marker in the first document. The process may further include identifying a particular token group that the token belongs to. The particular token group may be identified from a set of token groups for the first document. A particular token group from a set of token groups for the second document is then identified for the particular token group in the first document. A location for placing the marker in the second document is identified based upon the location of the particular token group in the second document. The marker is then placed in the second document at the identified location.

  • Patent number: 9727630
    Abstract: Systems and methods for serving dynamic content (such as advertisements) in response to dynamic content requests are presented. More particularly, systems and methods for serving dynamic content from dynamic content portfolios directed to trending events and/or topics are presented. Upon receiving a dynamic content request, content classifications corresponding to the requested, published content (i.e., the requested content) that included reserved dynamic content space which initiated the dynamic content request are determined. A current trend is identified in a content classification when the dynamic content request volume for the current trend period exceeds the standard/expected dynamic content request volume for the current trend period by at least a threshold amount. When a trend is detected, candidate content portfolios directed to the trending content classification are selected from a set trending content portfolios.

  • Patent number: 8650184
    Abstract: A method. The method includes receiving, at a computing device, data associated with a first plurality of consumers. The data comprises a combination of behavioral data and attitudinal data. The method also includes assigning a consumer of the first plurality of consumers to a first respective segments based on the received data, wherein the assigning is performed by the computing device. The method further includes calculating a goodness-of-fit score for the consumer of the first plurality of consumers for the first segment, wherein the calculating is performed by the computing device. Additionally, the method includes calculating a predicted goodness-of-fit score for a consumer of a second plurality of consumers for the first segment, the second plurality of consumers including at least the first plurality of consumers, wherein the calculating is performed by the computing device.

  • Publication number: 20120330713
    Abstract: A method. The method is implemented at least in part by a computing device. The method includes matching information in a first database with corresponding entries in a second database, utilizing a targeting engine to calculate a score for at least a portion of the consumers in the first database, and ranking at least a portion of the consumers in the first database based on the calculated scores. The second database is larger than the first database. The method also includes comparing media behavior of a first group of ranked consumers in the first database with media behavior of a second group of consumers in the first database. The matching, calculating, ranking and comparing are performed by the computing device.

  • Publication number: 20070184062
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are vaccines and methods for inducing an immune response against cancer cells and cells infected with intracellular parasites. Vaccines having housekeeping epitopes are disclosed. The housekeeping epitope is formed by housekeeping proteasomes in peripheral cells, but not by professional antigen presenting cells. A vaccine containing a housekeeping epitope that is derived from an antigen associated with a peripheral target cell can thus direct an immune response against the target cell. Methods of treatment are also disclosed, which involve administering a vaccine having a housekeeping epitope.
