  • Publication number: 20210295370
    Abstract: An information processing device includes a processor. The processor is configured to acquire a commodity purchase history of a user and first commodity registration information indicating a first purchase registration of a first commodity, determine discount information regarding a second commodity to which a discount can be applied in combination with the first commodity based on the commodity purchase history, and output discount information regarding the second commodity.

  • Publication number: 20150356580
    Abstract: A system for collecting information about a plurality of products includes first and second servers. The first server stores each of surveys in correlation with a product ID and one or more completed surveys, and is configured to respond to a survey request with a survey corresponding to a product ID included therein. The second server is configured to receive and store electronic receipt data generated by the store servers in connection with purchase transactions of products, and transmit electronic receipt data of a first type that includes a link to a survey stored in the first server. The first server receives completed surveys transmitted from each of the mobile computing devices that received the electronic receipt data of the first type, accessed one of the surveys stored in the first server through the link, and then indicated completion of the survey.

  • Publication number: 20100095151
    Abstract: A processor predicts predicted slack which is a predicted value of local slack of an instruction to be executed and executes the instruction using the predicted slack. A slack table is referred to upon execution of an instruction to obtain predicted slack of the instruction and execution latency is increased by an amount equivalent to the obtained predicted slack. Then, it is estimated, based on behavior exhibited upon execution of the instruction, whether or not the predicted slack has reached target slack which is an appropriate value of current local slack of the instruction. The predicted slack is gradually increased each time the instruction is executed, until it is estimated that the predicted slack has reached the target slack.
