  • Publication number: 20180157997
    Abstract: A system capable of identifying and locking resources (e.g., items, tickets, etc.) may map resources to a bit vector and use bit vectors to efficiently identify and lock the resources. For example, tickets to a concert may be mapped to a bit vector and the system may generate an availability bit vector indicating an availability of the seat locations. Thus, the tickets may be reserved by changing a binary value for bits corresponding to individual tickets. In addition, the system may generate bit vectors corresponding to metadata associated with the seat locations (e.g., aisle seat, handicap accessible, first ten rows, back ten rows, etc.), allowing the system to easily identify available seat locations that satisfy the search request. As the bit vectors are relatively small and can be processed easily, the system may improve a latency and reduce an error rate associated with searching for and reserving seat locations.

For example, tickets to a concert may be mapped to a bit vector and the system may generate an availability bit vector indicating an availability of the seat locations. Using bit vectors, the system may easily identify available seat locations that satisfy a search request and may select from the available seat locations using an optimization technique. For example, the system may select groups of seats that are next to unavailable seat locations or avoid selling groups of seats that would leave only a single seat available. Thus, the system may avoid fragmentation of ticket sales while improving a latency associated with searching for and reserving seat locations.

  • Patent number: 9569770
    Abstract: Techniques for generating and providing phrases are described herein. These techniques may include analyzing one or more sources to generate a first corpus of phrases, each of the phrases for use as an identifier and/or for association with a user. Once a first corpus of phrases has been generated, these phrases may be filtered to define a second corpus of phrases. Phrases of this second corpus may then be suggested to one or more users. In some instances, the phrases suggested to a particular user are personalized to the user based on information previously known about the user or based on information provided by the user.

  • Patent number: 9298700
    Abstract: Techniques for determining phrases that are related or similar to a source phrase are described herein. These techniques may include analyzing a corpus of text to locate a first set of phrases that differ from a received source phrase by one word. The techniques may then combine these words of the first set of phrases that differ from the source phrase to create a second set of phrases. The techniques may then filter out a portion of the second set of phrases before outputting another portion for use as an identifier, for association with a user account or for any other use.

  • Patent number: 8768852
    Abstract: Techniques for generating and providing phrases are described herein. These techniques may include analyzing one or more sources to generate a statistically improbable phrase, determining words that compose the statistically improbable phrase, inputting the words into an index, and determine phrases associated with the words. The determined phrases may then be presented to a user.

  • Patent number: 8706644
    Abstract: Techniques for generating and providing phrases are described herein. These techniques may include analyzing one or more sources to generate a first corpus of phrases, each of the phrases for use as an identifier and/or for association with a user for executing a transaction. Once a first corpus of phrases has been generated, these phrases may be filtered to define a second corpus of phrases. Phrases of this second corpus may then be suggested to one or more users. In some instances, the phrases suggested to a particular user are personalized to the user based on information previously known about the user or based on information provided by the user.

  • Patent number: 8423349
    Abstract: Techniques for generating and providing phrases are described herein. These techniques may include analyzing one or more sources to generate a first corpus of phrases, each of the phrases for use as an identifier and/or for association with a user. The first corpus of phrases may be generated based on characteristics associated with phrases. Once a first corpus of phrases has been generated, these phrases may be filtered to define a second corpus of phrases. Phrases of this second corpus may then be suggested to one or more users. In some instances, the phrases suggested to a particular user are personalized to the user based on information previously known about the user or based on information provided by the user.
