    Abstract: An arbitrary number of custom catalogs for an arbitrary number of customers can be published from a single database of seller catalog data. Custom browse hierarchies can be generated for each of the custom catalogs. The custom catalogs are subsets of the catalog database, and are generated in accordance with a set of rules that defines the scope of the content of the custom catalog. The rule sets define a series of sequential searches by which a subset of the product SKUs contained in the database are returned. A primary hierarchy is maintained that can have a scope coextensive with the primary database. Custom browse hierarchies can be pruned to render their scope approximately coextensive with each subset. The custom catalog subsets and the custom browse hierarchies are generated periodically through a virtual publication process.

A computing device determines an acyclical collection of primary edges that collectively reach all nodes within the graph, and also determines one or more secondary edges (e.g., edges other than the primary edges) between nodes of the graph. The computing device further determines a path between a first node of the graph and a second node of the graph. The path includes one or more of the primary edges and one or more of the secondary edges. The computing device represents the path as an abbreviated path including the first node, the second node, and the secondary edges in the path. The abbreviated path excludes one or more of the primary edges in the path.

  • Patent number: 10366343
    Abstract: A system ranks and/or recommends literary works based on information extracted from the text of the literary works. For example, the system may use information extracted from the text of a literary work to generate a graph representing the relationships of entities in the literary work. The system may identify sub-graphs in the graph, and generate a signature based on the values associated with the various sub-graphs. The system may generate signatures of a plurality of literary works. The system may then retrieve the signature of a literary work that was highly rated by a user, and compare the retrieved signature with other generated signatures using machine-learning algorithms to select literary works to recommend to the user.

  • Patent number: 10325384
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided to implement a relation network visualization and interaction engine that is configured to generate an extended adjacency matrix representation of a relation network. The mechanisms create a relation network data structure, and generate an adjacency matrix graphical representation of the relation network based on analysis of the relation network data structure. The mechanisms extend the adjacency matrix graphical representation by adding an interactive indirect relation glyph, for an indirect relation in the relation network, to the adjacency matrix graphical representation in association with representations of a source entity and a target entity that correspond to the indirect relation, to thereby generate an extended adjacency matrix graphical representation. The mechanisms output the extended adjacency matrix graphical representation in a visual manner on a computing device.

  • Patent number: 10284510
    Abstract: For message delivery in a communication network, message processing is monitored, including processing of a first message by subscribers of a network application that provides messaging services via the communication network. A group activity level is determined for processing of the first message by ones of the subscribers who belong to a first group of persons. The determined group activity level is compared to a threshold activity level for the group. Responsive to the determined group activity level exceeding the threshold activity level, a notification about the message is sent via the communication network for a subscriber who belongs to the first group and has not processed the first message.

  • Patent number: 10275109
    Abstract: A system for traversing between nodes within a user interface receives a directional command from a user. The directional command is a command to move a focus away from a current node. The system also determines a next node to move the focus onto. The determining the next node is based on the relative positioning between the current node and the other nodes. The determining the next node is based on previous movements of the focus that were performed prior to moving the focus onto the current node. The system also performs movement of the focus from the current node onto the next node.

  • Patent number: 10210234
    Abstract: Not all facts in a data warehouse are described by the same set of dimensions. However, there can be associations between the data dimensions and other dimensions. By maintaining a set of relationships that are capable of linking the dimensional keys used in existing data to the keys of an associated dimension, a data transformation can be constructed that summarizes by the original and by the associated dimensions in feeds in an analytical data mart (cube) that includes all the dimensions. This cube can then be consolidated and analyzed in a slice-and-dice fashion as though all the dimensions were independent. Data transformed in this manner can be analyzed alongside data from a source that is keyed by all of the dimensions.
