  • Patent number: 11900424
    Abstract: A system can recommend a next action for a user. A memory can store user data corresponding to the user and can include historic interaction points. A behavior pattern can be identified based on two or more interaction points stored in the user data. An intent of the user based on the behavior pattern can be identified. The intent can be based on a previous behavior pattern of another user. Several probabilities that the user will meet one or more objectives can be determined based on the intent. The probabilities can be scored using and used to assign a policy to the first user. A next action can be recommended based on the policy and executed with respect to the user. The outcome of the recommended next action can be stored to the user data.

  • Patent number: 11854005
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure are presented for an Embedded Data Transaction Exchange Platform (EDT-X) that generates marker data about relevant data of a transaction, and reliably stores the marker data in a permanent data storage, such as a block chain distributed ledger. The EDT-X platform does not generate the actual information that explains who was involved in the transaction or what the contents of the transaction were, but rather generates marker data that can reliably lead to tracing back to that information. The marker data may be permanently stored in a permanent data storage entity, such as a block chain distributed ledger. The data about the content of the transaction may be anonymously stored in a secure database, and the marker data pointing to the content of the transaction may be retrieved from the block chain distributed ledger to look up where the content data is stored in the secure database.

  • Patent number: 11809969
    Abstract: An improved analytics system dynamically generates, integrates, and deploys multiple models for use related to a particular user and/or user segment. The integrated model analytics system can deploy a set of models specifically identified for a user from a group of models related to the service. This set of models can be used to provide recommendations for the user related to content of the service. As the user continues to interact with the service, the integrated model analytics system can dynamically update multiple models from the set of models based on real-time user interactions. These updated models can be used to generate updated recommendations for the user that can be used to dynamically update content presented to the user. In addition, this updated model can be used when providing recommendations for users in other user segments.

  • Patent number: 11757820
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments relate to improvements in the design of a messaging inbox. The inbox may display different units or “modules” for providing a user with quick access to different inbox functionalities that they might not otherwise be aware of (or inclined to use on a regular basis). After a number of recent or unread messages are shown in the inbox's initial interface, the messages end and are replaced with modules. Many different types of functionality may be the subject of the modules (e.g., a module for sharing local content such as photos from a photo album, a People/States module, Top Contacts, New Behavior, Live Videos, Events, Businesses, or Messaging Stickers). Once the available modules have been scrolled through, the interface may revert to more messages, such as less-recent or previously read threads from the original messages. Unread threads may also be collapsed in the top section of the inbox, or included in a module.

    Abstract: The described technology relates to rendering a client-side user interface using a server-side cache for providing the displayed data. In an example implementation, in response to a user interface (e.g., dashboard with multiple widgets in a web application) being launched on the client device, the server initiates a refresh of the cache for the widgets; and transmits a first set of data obtained from the cache for widgets in the user interface before the cache is updated in response to the initiated refresh. The first set of data is followed by a second set of data obtained from the cache for at least some of the widgets after the cache is updated in response to the initiated refresh. The client displays the user interface using the second set of data while overwriting, for one or more of the widgets, information previously displayed using the first set of data.

  • Patent number: 11568146
    Abstract: Implementations set forth herein relate to an automated assistant that operates according to a variety of different location-based biasing modes for rendering responsive content for a user and/or proactively suggesting content for the user. The user can provide condensed spoken utterances to the automated assistant, when the automated assistant is operating according to one or more location-based biasing modes, but nonetheless receive accurate responsive outputs from the automated assistant. A responsive output generated by biasing toward a subset of location characteristic data that has been prioritized over other subsets of location characteristic data. The biasing allows the automated assistant to compensate for any details that may be missing from a spoken utterance, but allows the user to provide shorter spoken utterances, thereby reducing an amount of language processing when processing inputs from the user.

  • Patent number: 11553074
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes receiving an interaction identifier by a processor and in response to an input entered by a user at a first user interface of a mobile device. The input is associated with a frame within a page displayed at the first user interface. The method further includes receiving interaction information and application deeplinking purchase information associated with the purchase identifier and determining a uniform resource identifier (URI) of a second user interface at the mobile device. The second user interface is different from the first user interface. The method includes sending a signal, based on the URI, to cause the second user interface to be rendered at the mobile device with the interaction information pre-populated to complete an interaction requested by the user.

  • Patent number: 11481837
    Abstract: An approach for establishing and managing authentication circles is disclosed. The circles may be used to facilitate management of accounts, goals, or resources of one or more entities, or to provide an integrated view of the circumstances of, for example, family members or other interrelated persons. A person receiving assistance with the management of one or more accounts need not disclose authentication credentials to persons helping manage the accounts, enhancing security. Members may view members and access accounts administered by separate computing systems without needing credentials for each member, account, and/or computing system. The multiple accounts (which may be held at multiple institutions) need not be accessed individually by each member of the authentication circle, saving time and computing resources of users.
