  • Patent number: 11397778
    Abstract: A method, device, apparatus and computer-readable storage medium for mining an enterprise relationship. The method can include acquiring Internet data of multiple types, identifying enterprise names from the Internet data by an enterprise name identification model, performing data mining to the Internet data in a frequent item mining algorithm to obtain relational degrees among the enterprise names, and according to the relational degrees among the enterprise names, extracting the enterprise relationship from the Internet data by an extractor. A deeper and more comprehensive enterprise relationship can be obtained by performing data mining to Internet data of multiple types by using an enterprise name recognition model. By using the frequent items mining algorithm, enterprises among which there are higher relational degrees can further be obtained, so as to obtain a more accurate enterprise relationship.

    Abstract: A method and system for continual audience synchronization receives user input corresponding to criteria to create a targeted list of people. The system receives user input corresponding to a request to synchronize the targeted list of people with a corresponding audience on each of a number of content delivery networks. The system processes updates to add or remove entries from the targeted list of people based on the one or more criteria. In response to processing the updates, the system accesses each of the content delivery networks, through appropriate application programming interfaces, to update each corresponding audience. When a visitor who matches an entry in the corresponding audience accesses a webpage associated with one of the content delivery networks, the content delivery network selects content associated with the corresponding audience to be presented to the visitor and presents the selected content to the visitor as part of the webpage.

  • Patent number: 11334833
    Abstract: Propensities of entities, comprising human users and virtual assistants (VAs), for various behaviors can be determined and used to facilitate managing interactions between entities. An interaction management component (IMC) can determine an aggregate propensity metric relating to a propensity of an entity to engage in a behavior based on a cross-correlation of respective propensity metrics relating to respective propensities of the entity to engage in respective behaviors. During an interaction between entities, including the entity, IMC can determine an action to perform to interact with the entity based on the aggregate propensity metric and a context determined for the interaction. The action can be one that is predicted to elicit a defined action by the entity in response to the action. During (or after) the interaction, IMC can update behavior attributes, context, and/or aggregate propensity metric associated with the entity based on actions performed during the interaction.

  • Patent number: 11195149
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to cryptography. In particular, example embodiments relate to computing a relationship between private data of a first entity and private data of a second entity, while preserving privacy of the entities and preventing inter-entity data sharing. A server includes a first component to compute an intersection of two datasets, without directly accessing either dataset. The server includes a second component to compute a relationship, such as a regression, between data in the first dataset and data in the second dataset, without directly accessing either dataset.

  • Patent number: 11188946
    Abstract: A prediction data input unit 91 inputs prediction data that is one or more explanatory variables that are information likely to affect future sales. An exposure pattern generation unit 92 generates an exposure pattern which is an explanatory variable indicating the content of a commercial message scheduled to be performed during a period from predicted time to future prediction target time. A component determination unit 93 determines the component used for predicting the sales, on the basis of a hierarchical latent structure that is a structure in which latent variables are represented by a tree structure and components representing probability models are located at nodes of a lowest level of the tree structure, gating functions for determining a branch direction in the nodes of the hierarchical latent structure, and the prediction data and the exposure pattern.

  • Patent number: 11188942
    Abstract: When a player sets an acquisition target item to be an item he or she wants at a timing of creating a plan, actually required points that are required for acquiring the acquisition target item is determined. Then, options of the advertisement plan in which one or a plurality of advertisements are listed so that watching points reaching the actually required points can be acquired, from options of advertisements that can be watched in exchange for the watching points. When any of the plans is selected and confirmed, an advertisement is displayed based on the plan, and the watching points are given to the player. When the sum of the watching points given reaches the actually required points, the acquisition target item in the plan is given to the player.

  • Patent number: 11182859
    Abstract: A method for identifying a primary vehicle associated with a user of a mobile device includes receiving an indication of a vehicle entry event from a mobile device and retrieving sensor data from the mobile device. The method further includes receiving an indication of a vehicle exit event from the mobile device, generating a trip log including portions of the sensor data, and storing the trip log in a trip database. A server, or other suitable computing device, then analyzes the trip log and a plurality of previously stored trip logs in the trip database to determine a primary vehicle corresponding to the user of the mobile device. The method may allow a computing device to assign gathered mobile device data to a specific household vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11182418
    Abstract: A method of media content recommendation is described. The method can include receiving rating records of a plurality of users for a plurality of media contents. The rating records can include rating values provided by the plurality of users for the media contents. The plurality of users includes a first user and a plurality of second users. A confidence level of the first user for each of the second users is determined according to the plurality of rating records. A subset of the confidence levels satisfying a predetermined condition is selected from the determined confidence levels of the first user for the second users. The subset of the confidence levels is associated with a subset of the second users. A recommended media content to be provided to the first user is determined from the media contents that have been rated by the subset of the second users.
