  • Patent number: 10223189
    Abstract: Suppression routines are described for implementation by a monitoring service. The monitoring service uses collected data to identify faulty storage volumes. Advantageously, in some cases, the monitoring service can notify an operator of the storage system that certain storage volumes are faulty. In some embodiments, these notifications are to be suppressed because not all notifications of faulty volumes are necessary. Suppression rules can indicate that a faulty storage volume is at fault because it is a test volume, associated with a large power outage, or some other learned event from storage command metrics. The monitoring service can suppress notifications about these known system issues, among others.

  • Patent number: 10181130
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for automatically creating or updating predictive models, including digital marketing forecast models. A predictive model is updated in real-time or near real-time using a stochastic gradient descent optimization method based on one or more predictive values associated with an advertising impression that is won in an online advertising auction. Each predictive value, which is obtained from the predictive model, is encoded as an argument in a uniform resource locator (URL) corresponding to the ad impression being auctioned. If and when the ad impression is won, the predictive value(s) and other information can be tracked and immediately available for updating the model using information encoded in the URL.

  • Patent number: 10176483
    Abstract: A system and method for providing a user interface to facilitate the purchase of unique items by presenting past purchase information of unique items to consumers. The user interface is a two-dimensional chart, with each axis of the chart representing a variation of values of an attribute that characterize an item that was previously sold. The system populates the chart with sales data that reflects the past sales of items having attribute values that fall within the chart. By visually presenting to consumers the distribution of past purchases, the consumer is better able to assess whether an item that they are purchasing falls within “typical” purchase behavior of other consumers. In some embodiments, the system allows a user to select a region of the chart and initiate a search for items that are available for purchase that satisfy the attribute values that are associated with the selected region.

    Abstract: Data related to an event is provided to a group of contacts while the event is occurring via an event user interface that enables the group of contacts to coordinate with one another during the event. In this regard, an event coordination service is provides the event data to each contact of the group for review via an event user interface that is persistently displayed on a telecommunication or other computing device associated with the contact for the contact's easy and immediate reference during the event. When the event ultimately concludes, display of the event user interface ceases as the group of contacts likely no longer needs immediate or ready reference to the event.
