  • Patent number: 10108979
    Abstract: A dashboard to integrate gadgets and present data output from the gadgets in an integrated user interface. The gadgets dynamically collect information about an advertisement or an ad campaign associated with the advertisement as the information is collected from various sources during the ad campaign, each of some of the gadgets processing collected information and outputting the processed information in real time.

  • Publication number: 20160165277
    Abstract: A method, executed by a processor, for estimating media metrics from large population data includes formatting and storing panel data, the panel data comprising observed viewing data of a plurality of individual panelists and demographic data for the plurality of panelists, the panel being drawn from a large population; accessing the large population data, the large population data comprising household-level viewing data and household level demographics; training a model to estimate viewing audience size based on the observed panel data; estimating, using the trained model, audience size for each household in the large population data; estimating a viewing score for each individual viewer in a plurality of households in the large population data; and combining the estimates of audience size and viewing score to produce probabilities that each of the viewers in the household viewed a specific media event.

  • Patent number: 8996497
    Abstract: User queries are received, with each query requesting a service from a server. Overlapping experiments are performed on at least a portion of the queries, with each experiment modifying one or more parameters associated with the queries or parameters associated with processing of the queries, and with the experiments organized into layers. Two or more experiments in different layers are allowed to be performed on the same query, and for any given layer, at most one experiment is allowed to be performed on the same query.

  • Patent number: 8881189
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for inferring a demographic composition of a television audience of a television program. In one aspect, a method extrapolates television audience demographics from rated programs to unrated programs by attributing demographics of rated programs to unrated programs when the rated and unrated program are related by demographically rated channel tunes.

  • Patent number: 8839291
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for estimating demographic compositions of television audiences from audience similarities. In an aspect, pairwise cosine similarities of segment of viewers of rated and unrated television programs are determined, demographic information of rated programs is attributed to the unrated programs from the cosine similarity measures and demographic information for the rated programs.

  • Patent number: 8346710
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for evaluating statistical significance using placebo actions. One method includes receiving exposure data and control data describing exposed and control subjects and determining a test statistic for each of a plurality of subject actions including a desired action and a plurality of placebo actions. The test statistic for an action corresponds to an estimated effect that exposure to the treatment has on a likelihood that a subject will take the action. The method further includes comparing the test statistic for the desired action to the test statistics for the plurality of placebo actions, and determining whether the test statistic for the desired action is statistically significant according to the comparison. Another method includes automatically identifying placebo actions using a taxonomy that classifies subject actions or treatments, and determining test statistics for the placebo actions.

  • Patent number: 7756740
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for maintaining compact descriptions of the behavior of customers in a database of information relating to customer transactions. Of all possible variables that might be used to characterize customer transactions, a limited number are selected on the basis of discriminating power to define customer profiles. Customers are classified according to distinguishing features of their profiles. A new customer can be initially assigned to a particular class based on data characterizing his first few transactions.
