  • Patent number: 10210535
    Abstract: Techniques for dynamically generating feedback based on contextual information and providing the feedback to a user are provided. A service provider determines, based on contextual information related to a user (such as personal information previously provided by the user) interactive data to display to the user. The type of interactive data may correspond to the type of personal information submitted by the user or derived by the service provider. The interactive data may be based on other users that have already registered with the service provider. In this way, a user is able to (1) view current and relevant information that is related to the user and (2) see the value that the user receives by providing additional personal information. Subsequent interactive data may be based on multiple personal data items that the service provider receives from the user. These techniques are also applicable after a user has registered with a service provider.
