  • Patent number: 10691930
    Abstract: An online system matches a user across multiple online systems based on image data for the user (e.g., profile photo) regardless whether the image data is from the online system, a different but related online system or a third party system. For example, to match the user across a social networking system and INSTAGRAMâ„¢ system, the online system compares the similarity between images of the user from both systems in addition to similarity of textual information in the user profiles on both systems. The similarity of image data and the similarity of textual information associated with the user are used by the online system as indicators of matched user accounts belonging to the same user across both systems. The online system applies models trained using deep learning techniques to match a user across multiple online systems based on the image data and textual information associated with the user.

    Abstract: When a backup client sends a request to back up a file to a backup server, the file and an index (e.g., checksum, hash, encryption, etc.) of the file are stored on the backup server in an efficient deduplication storage. If a backup client sends a request to back up a modified version of a file already stored on a backup server, the modified portion of the file is stored. In addition, an index of the modified portion is generated and stored along with the modified portions on the backup server. The indices can be used to reconstruct the file or modified version of the file when retrieved. The efficient deduplication storage method ensures that multiple copies of files or portions of files do not exist on the servers.

  • Patent number: 10147114
    Abstract: An example involves determining a missing-audience factor based on first impressions corresponding to first client devices that do not have database proprietor (DP) identifiers for use by a DP to identify subscribers registered with the DP, and based on second impressions corresponding to second client devices that do have the DP identifiers used by the DP to identify subscribers registered with the DP. The first impressions represent accesses to media via the first client devices. The second impressions represent access to the media via the second client devices. The example involves determining a coverage-corrected unique audience (CCUA) size based on the missing-audience factor and a UA size of DP subscribers exposed to the media. The UA size is determined based on impressions logged by the DP. The CCUA size corresponds to impressions logged by the DP and not logged by the DP.

  • Patent number: 10089122
    Abstract: In an approach for customizing a mobile device interface based on touch points, a processor receives detection of points of contact between a user and a mobile device. A processor analyzes the points of contact between the user and the mobile device. A processor determines how many hands the user is holding the mobile device with. A processor determines a modification for a user interface for the mobile device, wherein determining the modification comprises: presenting a keyboard selected from the group consisting of: a first keyboard, based on a determination that the user is holding the mobile device with one hand, and a second keyboard, based on a determination that the user is holding the mobile device with two hands. A processor causes the modified user interface to be displayed on the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10049413
    Abstract: Embodiments create and label contextual slices from observation data and aggregate slices into a hierarchical storyline for a user. A context is a (possibly partial) specification of what a user was doing in the dimensions of time, place, and activity. A storyline is composed of a time-ordered sequence of contexts that partition a given span of time that are arranged in groups at one or more hierarchical levels. A storyline is created through a process of data collection, slicing, labeling, and aggregating. Raw context data can be collected from a variety of observation sources with various error characteristics. Slicing refines the raw context data into a consistent storyline composed of a sequence of contexts representing homogeneous time intervals. Labeling adds more specific and semantically meaningful data (e.g., geography, venue, activity) to the slices. Aggregation identifies groups of slices that correspond to a single semantic concept.
