  • Patent number: 11616786
    Abstract: Various computers will communicate messages back and forth over a communication network. These communications may exchange various information. In one aspect, an apparatus for communicating data over a communication network may comprise a computer processor, a receiver, and a memory. The computer processor may generate a request for transmission to a first server via the communication network. The request may include a data inquiry for data about an authorized user of a communication device. The computer processor may also generate a communication message for transmission to the authorized user with a prompt to provide user data via the communication device. The receiver may receive a response from the first server and user data from the communication device. The computer processor may further format the user data and generate a dynamic value based on the formatted response for display.

  • Patent number: 11580482
    Abstract: A social networking system builds a quality controlled and desired population-representative pool of human raters to provide ratings on content items to improve a feed ranking model used for providing its users with more relevant content. The system identifies a pool of candidate human raters for providing ratings on a feed of content items. For each candidate human rater of the pool of candidate human raters, the system presents a feed of content items based on a feed ranking model, obtains ratings on the feed of content items, and determines a score representing the consistency of the obtained ratings, the representativeness of the pool of human raters, or the relevance of the content provided by the ranking model. The system uses the computed scores to modify the ranking model used to present content to its users for improving the relevance of the presented content.
