  • Publication number: 20190311287
    Abstract: Balancing content distribution between a machine learning model and a statistical model provides a baseline assurance in combination with the benefits of a well-trained machine learning model for content selection. In some implementations, a server receiving requests for a content item assigns a first proportion of the received requests to a first group and assigns remaining requests to a second group. The server uses a machine learning model to select variations of the requested content item for responding to requests assigned to the first group and uses a statistical model to select content variations for requests assigned to the second group. The server obtains performance information, e.g., acceptance rates for the different variations, and compares performance of the different models used for content selection. Audience share assigned to the machine learning model is increased when it outperforms the statistical model and decreased when it underperforms the statistical model.

  • Publication number: 20170220935
    Abstract: A system, a machine-readable storage medium storing instructions, and a computer-implemented method are described herein to a Group Relevance Engine that generates, for a group in a social network, an aggregate group feature based on a common attribute shared amongst member accounts currently subscribed to the group. The Group Relevance Engine identifies an account feature corresponding to the common attribute in a profile of a target member account. The Group Relevance calculates a relevance score based at least on a match between the aggregate group feature and the account feature. The Group Relevance determines whether to recommend the group to the target member account based at least on the relevance score.

  • Publication number: 20170220934
    Abstract: A system, a machine-readable storage medium storing instructions, and a computer-implemented method are described herein to a Discussion Relevance Engine that filters a plurality of discussions in a social network to identify a discussion pool. The Discussion Relevance Engine identifies a plurality of eligible discussions in the discussion pool, wherein each eligible discussion corresponds to a respective social network member group to which a target member account has previously subscribed. The Discussion Relevance Engine calculates, for each eligible discussion, a relevance score predictive of a relevance of the eligible discussion to the target member account. The Discussion Relevance Engine recommends at least one of the eligible discussions to the target member account based at least in part on the calculated relevance scores.

  • Publication number: 20170178252
    Abstract: A system, a machine-readable storage medium storing instructions, and a computer-implemented method are directed to a Digest Engine that identifies a feature(s) that is predictive of relevance, to a target member account in a professional social network, of content from a member group(s) to which the target member account is subscribed. Based on the feature(s), the Digest Engine determines a portion(s) of relevant content created amongst respective member accounts subscribed to the member group(s). The Digest Engine generates a persistent message providing access to the portion(s) of relevant content. The Digest Engine sends the persistent message to the target member account.
