  • Patent number: 10303684
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, are provided for resource scoring adjustment based on entity selection. In one aspect, a method includes the actions of accessing resource data that specifies, for each of a plurality of resources, a resource identifier and one or more referenced entities, and accessing search term data that specifies a plurality of search terms, and for each search term, a selection value for each resource, each selection value being based on user selections of search results that referenced the resource to which the selection value corresponds. From the resource data and search term data, for each search term and each entity, a search term-entity selection value is determined that is based on the selection values of resources that reference the entity and that were referenced by search results in response to a query that included the search term.

  • Publication number: 20180149320
    Abstract: An LED lighting device includes a light reflective member. The light reflective member is provided to extend so as to cause light emitted from an LED element to have light directivity and to radiate from an LED lighting tube to the outside of the tube. The reflective member includes a light directivity forming surface and a pseudo LED element forming surface. The light directivity forming surface causes the light emitted from the LED element to have the light directivity and to be directed from the LED lighting tube toward the outside of the tube. The pseudo LED element forming surface reflects a pseudo LED element of the LED element installed on the substrate. The light radiated from the LED element is radiated to the outside of the tube after having been confined in the tube.

  • Patent number: 9875295
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for evaluating substitute terms. One of the methods includes receiving a query having an original term and determining one or more substitution contexts for the original term, wherein a substitution context includes one or more context terms and an indication of a position in the query of the original term and the one or more context terms. The substitution contexts are classified into a first category or a second category based on a respective score of each substitution context. The original term is associated with one or more substitution contexts in the first category.

  • Patent number: 9116957
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage media are disclosed that involve a server receiving a search query including a query term and a substitute term for the query term and data corresponding to a set of documents. The server accesses a value corresponding to a relevance of the search query to a selected document from the set of documents and determines that the value satisfies a predetermined threshold. The server then generates a score for the selected document according to a first scoring model, the first scoring model including a first increment value for the substitute term. The first scoring model is different than a second scoring model used to generate scores for one or more other documents from the set of documents.
