    Abstract: This application relates to apparatus and methods for automatically providing item reviews. In some examples, a website provides a widget on a website allowing a customer to request an item review for an item. In response to the customer requesting the item review, a computing device determine whether suitable reviews for the item are available. If suitable reviews are available, the reviews are provided to the customer requesting the item review. If suitable reviews are not available, the computing device determines a set of customers to request item reviews for the item from, and provides item review requests to the determined set of customers. The computing device receives responses to the item review requests received from the set of customers, and provides an item review based on the received item review requests.

    Abstract: A quantification system is configured for debiasing media creative efficiency. In some embodiments, the quantification system leverages a weighted generalized linear model (GLM) to determine the individual impacts of media creatives beyond network effects. To prepare input data for fitting the weighted GLM, the quantification system analyzes spot airing data, creates a specific data structure for storing observations (e.g., network-media creative combinations) that can be provided to the weight GLM as input, and computes additional input data points needed by the weighted GLM (e.g., network spend, media creative efficiency per network-media creative combination, etc.). The weighted GLM is then fitted to obtain coefficients representing the individual impacts of the media creatives. The quantification system utilizes the computed impacts to adjust the previously computed media creative efficiency for each media creative.

  • Patent number: 11276038
    Abstract: Described herein are various embodiments of a system for tracking interests in content using a distributed data store. By being “distributed,” there may be multiple different copies of the data store that each hold a portion or all of the data of the data store, with the different copies being continuously, periodically, or occasionally synchronized to ensure that data held in one matches the data held in another, but with no copy of the data store being treated as the official or canonical copy of the data store. The distributed data store may track the interests regarding the content in particular ways, including through storing information identifying the content and identifying interests in the content. The distributed data store may be used to track interests in media, such as to track ownership, management, or royalty interests in media like songs, to provide a mechanism for “Digital Rights Expression” (DRE).

  • Patent number: 11270326
    Abstract: Embodiments determine a price schedule for an item by, for each item, receiving a set of prices for the item, an inventory quantity for the item, a per-segment demand model for the item, and an objective function that is a function of the per-segment demand model and maximizes revenue based at least on a probability of a return of the item and a cost of the return. Embodiments allocate the inventory quantity among a plurality of customer segments based at least on a predicted contribution of each customer segment to the objective function. Embodiments determine a markdown portion of the price schedule for the item that maximizes the objective function, where the markdown portion assigns a series of prices selected from the set of prices for respective time periods during a clearance season for the item.

  • Patent number: 11250272
    Abstract: In one or more implementations, groups of users enter a facility within a short time. Automated systems attempt to predict a grouping for various users, but the predicted grouping may not exhibit a confidence level above a certain threshold level. In such cases, a user interface is generated and presented to an associate to confirm the grouping of users. The user interface includes an image gallery and interface elements that allow for the selection of users into a group. The image gallery includes previously stored images of users, such as images obtained during a registration process or during a previous visit to the facility. In addition, the user interface also includes image data obtained from a camera at the facility depicting visitors at various times or locations. Once a grouping has been selected or confirmed by an associate, group data may be generated and stored for the group of users.

  • Patent number: 11249982
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and method for machine learning and blockchain-based anti-discrimination validation. The described techniques uses a machine learning model to generate a numerical determination associated with a first person based on an input data set associated with the first person. The numerical determination is further based on a corrective module configured to compensate for prohibited discrimination by the machine learning model. The technique generates a blockchain transaction data structure comprising a state of the machine learning model at the time of generating the numerical determination, a copy of the input data set associated with the person, and an indication of a correction by the machine learning model. The blockchain transaction data structure is recorded or published in a blockchain network.
