  • Publication number: 20190311001
    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: 20190278865
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and media for lot classification are disclosed. In one example, a classification system for identifying lot listings receives a description for a listing in a publication system, identifies a string in the listing, identifies a quantity word or digit in the string, and converts an identified quantity word into digit form. A normalized string is tokenized to produce tokens, the tokenizing of the normalized string including splitting the normalized string into a series of substrings using a sequence of delimiters. For each substring, an additional split is performed by separating any digit from any other adjacent character, unless that character is another digit, and maintaining an internal character order of each split substring to produce a flattened list of tokenized tokens.

  • Patent number: 10210214
    Abstract: A computer implemented method, a computerized system and a computer program product for detecting scalable trends in a personalized search context. The computer implemented method comprising obtaining search results matching a search query, wherein the search query is a query defined by a user, wherein the search results comprise occurrences of events, wherein each occurrence is associated with a timestamp. The method further comprises calculating, by a processor, in response to obtaining the search results, trend scores for the events based on the occurrences comprised by the search results. The method further comprises providing an output to the user based on the trend scores.

  • Publication number: 20180219814
    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.

  • Patent number: 9602563
    Abstract: Machines, systems and methods for dynamic content filtering are provided. The method comprises receiving an indication for a preference for an approximate number of content to be delivered during an indicated time period; assigning a first score to the first content according to one or more factors, in response to receiving a first content at a first point in time during the first time period; delivering the first content, in response to determining that the first score is above a first dynamically calculated threshold, wherein the first dynamically calculated threshold is calculated based on: t: time of arrival of the first content, k(t): number of contents that has been delivered until the first point in time, K: the approximate number of events to be delivered during the indicated time period, and F: a distribution function calculated based on prior history of the content delivered.
