  • Patent number: 11068788
    Abstract: A disclosed method may include receiving geographic coordinates of a location at which two parties are to rendezvous, generating a human-understandable geospatial descriptor for the request location, and sending the descriptor to respective devices of the two parties for presentation to the two parties. Generating the human-understandable geospatial descriptor may include identifying a human-visible feature in the vicinity of the request location that is labeled within available map data, selecting, based on a descriptor generation model, a reference expression relative to the identified feature, and applying a grammar-based constructor to the label and the selected reference expression to form the human-understandable geospatial descriptor. The model may be tuned using machine learning. The two parties may include a ride requestor and a ride provider in a ridesharing service. The identified feature may be a point of interest, landmark, street name, intersection, marker, or structure.

  • Patent number: 11068939
    Abstract: A system and computer-implemented method is provided for a neural network for the optimal display of hotels on a graphical user interface. Computation is undertaken on a dataset wherein combinatorial complexity is reduced by obtaining a metric that can be a subset of a larger universe of user displays. A desired result set is obtained that can improve traveller satisfaction, travel agent revenues, and overall utility. This is accomplished by computing a first combination of displays, weighted as appropriate, and obtaining the results of an expression defined by factoring in a probability to sell a hotel based on a selected display on a user interface.

  • Patent number: 11037033
    Abstract: A multivariate clustering-based anomaly detector can generate an event for consumption by an APM manager that indicates detection of an anomaly based on multivariate clustering analysis after topology-based feature selection. The anomaly detector accumulates time-series data across a series of time instants to form a multivariate time-series data slice or multivariate data slice. The anomaly detector then performs multivariate clustering analysis with the multivariate data slice. The anomaly detector determines whether a multivariate data slice is within a cluster of multivariate data slices. If the multivariate data slice is within the cluster and the cluster is a known anomaly cluster, then the anomaly detector generates an anomaly detection event indicating detection of the known anomaly. The anomaly detector can also determine that a multivariate data slice is within an unknown cluster and generate an event indicating detection of an unknown anomaly.

  • Patent number: 10938651
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices, including computer-readable media, for reducing medication side effects using digital therapeutics. In some implementations, a system analyzes tracking data, user data, and medication data for various users to determine a degree to which different digital therapeutics program parameters reduce a likelihood or severity of undesired effects of medications. The system generates data that associates the parameters of the digital therapeutics programs with effects of the medications. The system receives data indicating a medication prescribed for a user of a mobile device and, based on the generated data, selects one or more digital therapeutics program parameters to activate or adjust a particular digital therapeutic program to provide interactions to the user.

  • Patent number: 10929762
    Abstract: Data is classified using corrected semi-supervised data. Cluster centers are defined for unclassified observations. A class is determined for each cluster. A distance value is computed between a classified observation and each cluster center. When the class of the classified observation is not the class determined for the cluster center having a minimum distance, a first distance value is selected as the minimum distance, a second distance value is selected as the distance value computed to the cluster center having the class of the classified observation, a ratio value is computed between the second distance value and the first distance value, and the class of the classified observation is changed to the class determined for the cluster center having the minimum distance value when the computed ratio value satisfies a label correction threshold. A classification matrix is defined using corrected observations to determine the class for the unclassified observations.

  • Patent number: 10922362
    Abstract: Systems and methods for models utilizing siloed data are disclosed. For example, data stored with and/or available to one or more systems may be siloed such that it may not be aggregated and/or shared with other systems. The presently-disclosed systems and methods generate and utilize predictive layers and models to allow each system to predict outcomes using its own data and then models are shared between systems to allow each associated system to gain the benefits of the data of other systems without aggregating such data or otherwise sharing the data.

  • Patent number: 10922105
    Abstract: A user performing a first process on a first computing device is detected. The first process includes one or more discrete tasks. A process flow graph, that is generated before performance of the first task, related to the first process is retrieved based on detection of the first process. A user action that relates to the one or more discrete tasks of the first process is identified based on the first process and based on the process flow graph. A current state of the first process is determined based on the first process and based on the process flow graph. A first video is generated based on the current state of the first process and based on the user action. The first video depicts one or more future actions that may be performed by the user to successfully perform the first process on the first computing device.

  • Patent number: 10909150
    Abstract: A distributed computing device calculates word counts for each of a set of documents. The word counts are represented as values, each representing a number of times a corresponding word appears in one of the set of documents. The distributed computing device randomly samples the word counts to calculate sampled word counts. The distributed computing device and additional distributed computing devices iteratively execute a process to determine a consensus result for the sampled word counts based on the sampled word counts and additional sampled word counts calculated by the additional distributed computing devices. The distributed computing device determines a latent semantic index (LSI) subspace based on the consensus result for the sampled word count and reflecting contents of the set and additional sets of documents. The distributed computing device projects a document into the LSI subspace to determine the latent semantic content of the document.

    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media can perform a first ranking to rank each ephemeral content item collection of a plurality of ephemeral content item collections based on a probability of a user selecting the ephemeral content item collection. One or more ephemeral content item collections from the first ranking to provide in an ephemeral content feed of the user can be selected. A second ranking to rank each ephemeral content item collection of the plurality of ephemeral content item collections other than the selected ephemeral content item collections from the first ranking based on a probability of the user spending time on the ephemeral content item collection can be performed. One or more ephemeral content item collections from the second ranking to provide in the ephemeral content feed of the user can be selected.
