  • Publication number: 20160358228
    Abstract: A computing system can include an advertisement server that, as part of an auction for a paid search advertisement, calculates an original score for a particular bidder by using a scoring function; calculates an optimized score for the particular bidder by obtaining a score estimate from a system storing results of an offline historical model for the particular bidder, calculating a reserve price value by calculating ?(s*-?i), and adding the reserve price value (which may be a negative value) to the original score; and assigns the particular bidder to a paid search advertisement slot according to the optimized score. The optimized score can be represented by the formula {tilde over (s)}i=si+?(s*??i), where si is the original score, ? is a multiplier between 0 and 1, s* is a fixed point that may be equal to 0, and ?i is the score estimate for the bidder that comes from the offline historical model.

  • Publication number: 20140372203
    Abstract: Methods, computer systems, and computer-storage media are provided for utilizing a quality-weighted generalized second-price auction to rank, price, and allocate advertisements for presentation on a results page. Advertisements responsive to a search query are identified, and a rank score is determined for each of the advertisements. The rank score is determined based on a quality score associated with each of the advertisements as well as a bid price for each of the advertisements. The satisfied click-through-rate for an advertisement is used as a proxy metric for the quality score. The quality score is further used to determine the cost-per-click of the advertisement. Certain quality metrics may also be utilized to determine the number of advertisements that should be presented on the results page in order to maximize publisher revenue and minimize user cost.

  • Publication number: 20140306532
    Abstract: A linear alternator to supply the electrical utility needs of homes and small businesses comprises a radial arrangement of five cylinders around a common crankshaft. Mechanical input power is applied to the crankshaft for conversion to electrical output power. Each of the five radial cylinders is in itself a single linear alternator in which four sets of equally spaced shuttle magnets are arranged head-to-toe and separated by spacers and insulators. The shuttle magnets are mounted as an assembly on a rod independently driven by the crankshaft such that each of five rods can correspondingly move back and forth inside four matching sets of equally spaced pickup coils. Alternating currents from each of the twenty total pickup coils are individually rectified, filtered, and regulated to charge banks of batteries or ultra-capacitors. Solid-state inverters can be connected to the batteries or ultra-capacitors to produce utility grade AC power, or DC power outputs can be tapped directly.
