  • Patent number: 11449958
    Abstract: A facility for valuing a distinguished home located in a distinguished geographic area is described. The facility receives home attributes for the distinguished home. For each of a plurality of valuation sub-models, the facility applies the valuation sub-model to the received home attributes to obtain a sub-model valuation for the distinguished home. The facility further applies a meta-model to the record home attributes to obtain a relative weighting factor for each sub-model. The facility then uses the obtained relative weighting factors to combine the sub-model valuations to obtain an overall valuation for the distinguished home. The facility reports the obtained valuation for the distinguished home.

  • Patent number: 11410222
    Abstract: Conventional user interfaces for large commercial ecosystems typically require a seller partner to scroll around and switch views many times to find the right operational service or data. A simplified user interface that includes limited information about those operational services enables the seller partner to more quickly and efficiently learn about, configure, and use those operational services which are available to them. The limited information may include eligibility information, seller partner-specific information associated with the operational service, and information about the operational service, allowing rapid navigation and decision making. Once enrolled in an operational service, the simplified user interface facilitates administration of the operational service.

  • Patent number: 11355035
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve generating a real-time notification to facilitate the delivery of customized content, based on detecting that a subject activity occurs within a customized subject region. For instance, a computing system updates a graphical interface to display, as a layer on a map, detected instances of a subject activity performed within a geographic area of the map. The computing system determines a polygon corresponding to a region of the geographic area, where the polygon is determined from a graphical input representing lines at locations on the map on which the detected instances are overlaid. The computing system determines that a location of a detected instance of the subject activity performed by a user device falls within the polygon. The computing system transmits a notification to a content provider, such that the content provider delivers customized content to the user device that performed the detected instance of the subject activity.

    Abstract: Techniques are described for using computing devices to perform automated operations related to providing visual information of multiple types in an integrated manner about a building or other defined area. The techniques may include generating and presenting a GUI (graphical user interface) on a client device that includes a computer model of the building's interior with one or more first types of information (e.g., in a first pane of the GUI), and simultaneously presenting other types of related information about the building interior (e.g., in additional separate GUI pane(s)) that is coordinated with the first type(s) of information being currently displayed. The computer model may be a 3D (three-dimensional) or 2.5D representation generated after the house is built and showing the actual house's interior (e.g., walls, furniture, etc.), and may be displayed to a user of a client computing device in a displayed GUI with various user-selectable controls.

  • Patent number: 11205229
    Abstract: A set of valuations is obtained for a set of assets of a given enterprise. The enterprise has a plurality of groups associated therewith, and each of the valuations is computed using a multi-dimensional model configured to generate cross-group impact values with respect to each asset and two or more of the groups associated with the enterprise. One or more storage locations within a storage infrastructure associated with the enterprise to store the assets are determined based on the valuations for the assets. For example, the one or more storage locations may be determined based on a content balancing process that computes an optimal storage location to store each asset in order to minimize overall cost to the enterprise.
