  • Publication number: 20220293278
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for connected contact tracing system. The methods, systems, and apparatus include actions of receiving sensor data from multiple sensors, receiving exposure information including a person and an epidemiological event data, determining, from the sensor data, a contact exposure event including the person and another person, generating, from the sensor data and the exposure information, a risk score for the contact exposure event, and providing a notification including the risk score and information for the contact exposure event.

  • Patent number: 10936955
    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed for determining network-accessible content changes based on computed models and providing a long term forecast of user interaction at a network accessible site based upon a short term experiment at the site. A forecast model for a period of time is generated based upon historical data of user interactions at the site. An experiment is run for a short term at the site based upon a potential change at the site. Based upon data obtained during the experiment, scores are generated for a control group (no change) and a treatment group (potential change) and compared. If there are statistically significant differences between the control group and the treatment group scores, the long term forecast may be used to forecast what the long term impact of the experiment would be based upon the short term experiment.

  • Patent number: 10636053
    Abstract: An online system evaluates the quality of a content publisher displaying sponsored content items. To determine a likelihood of conversion actions associated with the sponsored content items, the online system uses information about users and their interactions with sponsored content items featured within the content publisher against interactions with sponsored content items featured within a benchmark system (e.g., online system). By determining a ratio of these interactions, the online system can determine a likelihood of conversion actions for the content publisher. The online system uses this likelihood of conversions to determine a publisher quality score that it uses to normalize third party value contributions toward placing sponsored content items on the content publisher. Thus, third party systems no longer need to be concerned about the intrinsic value of a given content publisher as third party value contributions are normalized based on the content publisher's conversion rates.

  • Publication number: 20190124170
    Abstract: The disclosed computer-implemented method may include measuring a user's activity for at least a current time period with respect to a social networking group of a social network. The method may include determining, based on at least the user's activity, whether the user will establish a meaningful connection with the social networking group for a next time period. The meaningful connection may indicate that the user satisfies a threshold amount of activity with the social networking group for a time period. The method may include selecting, based on the determination, content associated with the social networking group. The method may include providing the selected content for display to the user. Various other methods, systems, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10152458
    Abstract: Described are techniques for determining long-term effects of an experimental change to a user experience after the end of the experiment. A control state and a treatment state of a statistical hypothesis experiment may be assigned to first and second client devices, respectively, during an experiment time period. Subsequent to the end of the experiment, presentation of the control state may be discontinued. Result data corresponding to the treatment state may be determined during the experiment time period and for a length of time subsequent to the experiment time period. Result data corresponding to the control state may be determined during the experiment time period, and for a length of time prior to assignment of the control state to the first client device.

  • Patent number: 9911348
    Abstract: A game delivery system delivers a plurality of games in a training program. The training program is configured to systematically drive neurological changes to overcome cognitive deficits associated with a neurological disorder. In one embodiment, the training program includes an initial batch of games that predominantly exercise elemental, lower-level cognitive processes and sensory deficits. After a game participant progresses through the initial batch of games, the training program provides games that impose comparatively greater higher-order cognitive processing requirements on the participant. A clinician portal provides remote access to a clinician to data about the game participant's compliance and performance with the training program. The clinician portal also enables the administrator to configure the training program.
