  • Publication number: 20230022898
    Abstract: In some implementations, a server device can generate configuration data for an application based on user engagement segments associated with a user of the application. For example, a server device can receive information identifying user engagement segments associated with a particular user. When the server device receives a request for configuration data for the application that identifies the particular user, the server device can obtain the engagement segment identifiers associated with the particular user. The server device can use the engagement segment identifiers to obtain segment configuration data for each engagement segment identifier, combine the segment configuration data into a combined configuration, and send the combined configuration to the application on the user device. The application can then determine what content to present and how to present the content on the user device based on the combined configuration data.

  • Patent number: 11232171
    Abstract: In some implementations, a user device can generate configuration data for an application on the user device using multilevel configuration data. For example, an application on the user device can obtain application level configuration data from a server device. The application level configuration data can be generated based on user engagement segments associated with the user of the user device, for example. The application can obtain publisher level configuration data generated by a content publisher. In response to requesting a content item, the application can receive content level configuration data. The application can combine the application level configuration data, the publisher level configuration data, and/or the content level configuration data to generate dynamic configuration data. The dynamic configuration data can be used by the application to determine, among other things, what content to present to the user of the application on the user device.

  • Patent number: 10681162
    Abstract: In some implementations, a server device can segment users based on user engagement with an application on a user device. For example, server device can receive user event data from many user devices indicating user activities with respect to the application and/or content presented by the application. The server device can generate user engagement segments based on the received user event data. The server device can generate predictive models for each user engagement segment based on the received user event data. The server device can determine which particular user engagement segments a particular user is associated with based on user event data associated with the particular user and/or the predictions generated by the predictive models. The application on the user device associated with the particular user can then be configured according to the user engagement segments associated with the particular user.

  • Patent number: 10268747
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure involve a mobile or computer reader application that obtains articles or other computer files from a central database and displays the articles to a user of the device. The reader application may be customizable around one or more characteristics of the user of the device. In one embodiment, the type and number of articles provided to the device and displayed in the reader application may be based on the determination of a category or type of usage of the application is performed by the user. Further, the determination of the use of the reader application on the device is performed by and contained within the device such that usage information is not shared with overall article providing system. In another embodiment, the article providing system and/or device may determine recommendations to provide to a user of the reading application. These recommendations may be based on one or more selected interests or topics of the user of the reading application.

  • Patent number: 9635689
    Abstract: Methods and devices provide channel assignments of programs delivered in a mobile setting. The channel assignments include unicast channels, multicast channels, and broadcast channels. The channel assignments are based on one or more of the type of program, user viewership information, or user voting information. Additionally, methods and devices provide for handover between mobile service areas at the application layer. Programs are buffered based on a handover time. During the handover, the buffered portion of the program is played.

  • Patent number: 9613395
    Abstract: Techniques for operation chart rescaling are described. In at least some embodiments, an operations chart is provided that tracks various parameters for an operation. The operations chart can include visual indicia of operation parameters, such as an operation value indicator that indicates a current operation value. A progress indicator can also be included that provides a visual indication of operation progress. In response to a change in an operation value for the operations chart (e.g., a change in data rate), the operations chart can be rescaled to visually reflect the change in operation value. In at least some implementations, techniques are employed to smooth visual movement of chart elements during a rescaling operation.
