  • Publication number: 20190156373
    Abstract: Techniques for using machine learning to configure social media campaigns are disclosed. A social relationship management (SRM) service performs supervised machine learning to generate a learned model, at least by: generating feature vectors based on training data including campaign configuration data and one or more campaign success metrics; and performing pattern recognition on the feature vectors to determine one or more preferred campaign configurations. The SRM service publishes messages to one or more social media platforms and receives user interaction data associated with users' interactions with the messages. The SRM service performs unsupervised machine learning to update the learned model based at least in part on the user interaction data.

  • Publication number: 20190102574
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to de-obfuscated data to process at one or more artificial-intelligence (AI) decision nodes throughout a communication decision tree. Through processing directed by the communication decision tree, additional de-obfuscated data is collected and securely transmitted in de-obfuscated or re-obfuscated form to enrich underlying data structures.

  • Patent number: 9928242
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software applications for managing slide presentation content are described in the present disclosure. According to one embodiment, among many, a computer readable medium is configured to store instructions that are executable by a processing device. The computer readable medium comprises logic adapted to enable a user to enter one or more search terms via a graphical user interface, the one or more search terms being used to initiate a text search of individual slides disassembled from one or more slide presentations and stored in an external database. Additional logic is adapted to display results of the text search on the graphical user interface, which displays a visual representation of a plurality of the individual slides resulting from the text search. The computer readable medium also includes logic adapted to enable a user to select one or more of the individual slides displayed on the graphical user interface.

  • Publication number: 20160063442
    Abstract: Systems for using social media sites in recruiting activities. Potential candidates for job openings are considered using computer-implemented analysis of an online social referral graph and a rule base. Content from one or more social data sources is retrieved and analyzed to identify potential candidates for a job opening. The potential candidate's social data comprises information used as a reputation score pertaining to the potential candidate and as a reputation score pertaining to the potential candidate's social connections. An employee database is cross referenced to find a match between employees and any of the potential candidate's social connections. A referral score based on an influence contribution measure, a clout contribution measure, a generosity contribution measure, an activity contribution measure, an impact contribution measure, or an engagement contribution measure is calculated.

  • Patent number: 8341528
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software applications for managing slide presentation content are described in the present disclosure. According to one embodiment, among many, a computer readable medium is configured to store instructions that are executable by a processing device. The computer readable medium comprises logic adapted to disassemble a plurality of slide presentations into a plurality of individual files, wherein each individual file corresponds to a single slide of a respective slide presentation. The computer readable medium also includes logic adapted to extract information from each slide and logic adapted to compare the extracted information from each slide and consolidate groups of slides that are substantially similar.
