Scalable complex event processing with probabilistic machine learning models to predict subsequent geolocations

Provided is a process, including: obtaining a set of historical geolocations; segmenting the historical geolocations into a plurality of temporal bins; determining pairwise transition probabilities between a set of geographic places based on the historical geolocations; configuring a compute cluster by assigning subsets of the transition probabilities to computing devices in the compute cluster; receiving a geolocation stream indicative of current geolocations of individuals; selecting a computing device in the compute cluster in response to determining that the computing device contain transition probabilities for the received respective geolocation; selecting transition probabilities applicable to the received respective geolocation from among the subset of transition probabilities assigned to the selected computing device; predicting a subsequent geographic place based on the selected transition probabilities.. . ...

Low-latency approximation of combinatorial optimization of residual amounts when allocating large collections of stored value cards

Provided is a process including: obtaining a repository of stored value card records; receiving a request for a stored value card from a remote client computing device; inferring based on the request, a transaction balance of a transaction in which the requested stored value card is to be used; inferring based on the request, a merchant to participate in the transaction; identifying a subset of the stored value card records in response; selecting one or more stored value cards from among the identified subset based on a comparison between the inferred transaction balance and the value remaining on the selected one or more stored value cards; and sending balance-access information by which the selected one or more stored value card balance or balances can be spent at a point of sale terminal.. . ... Retailmenot Inc

Enhancing probabalistic signals indicative of unauthorized access to stored value cards by routing the cards to geographically distinct users

Provided is a process including: receiving a stored value card from a first computing device and a first geolocation of the first computing device, the first computing device having balance access information of the stored value card; receiving a request for a stored value card from a second computing device at a second geolocation; determining to not send the stored value card to the second computing device as a result of the second geolocation being within a threshold geographic distance to the first geolocation; receiving another request for a stored value card from a third computing device at a third geolocation; and determining to send the stored value card to the third computing device as a result of the third geolocation not being within the threshold geographic distance to the first geolocation; and sending balance-access information of the stored value card to the third computing device.. . ... Retailmenot Inc

Modulating mobile-device displays based on ambient signals to reduce the likelihood of fraud

Provided is a process of classifying ambient signals to reduce fraudulent use of information, the process including: receiving, with the mobile computing device, from a remote server, balance-access information by which a stored value card balance can be spent at a point of sale terminal; storing, with the mobile computing device, the balance-access information; sensing, with one or more sensors of a mobile computing device, ambient signals; classifying the ambient signals as indicating the user is in a retail establishment; and in response to the classification, displaying, on a display screen of the mobile computing device, the balance-access information, such that the balance-access information can be input to a point-of-sale terminal.. . ... Retailmenot Inc

Peer-to-peer geotargeting content with ad-hoc mesh networks

Provided is a process, including: obtaining, in memory of a first mobile computing device, a plurality of content items, at least some of the content items pertaining to respective different geographic areas; receiving, with the first mobile computing device, data indicating a user interaction with a given content item among the plurality of the content items; and in response to receiving the data indicative of the user interaction, transmitting a wireless signal from the first mobile computing device directly to a second mobile computing device that is different from the first mobile computing device, the wireless signal being indicative of the given content item and indicating that the given content item pertains to a given geographic area within range of the wireless signal transmission.. . ... Retailmenot Inc

Geotargeting of content by dynamically detecting geographically dense collections of mobile computing devices

Provided is a process of selectively providing content to computing devices based on geographic proximity to dynamically detected events drawing crowds, the process including: obtaining, with one or more computers, data indicative of current geolocations of more than 5,000 mobile computing devices based on information reported by an application executing on the mobile computing devices; inferring, with one or more computers, that an event with a crowd is occurring based on the data indicative of the geolocations indicating an amount of people and a proximity of the people; selecting, with one or more computers, content in response to the inference; and sending, with one or more computers, the selected content to one or more user computing devices for presentation based on proximity between the one or more user computing devices and a geographic location of the event with the crowd.. . ... Retailmenot Inc

Group-decision engine

A process of expediting a group decision, the process including: instructing computing devices of group members to present options for voting by group members in a plurality of rounds, each round presenting options at a corresponding hierarchical level of a taxonomy, and each round after a first round excluding at least some options based on a group selection in an earlier round; receiving votes of at least some group members in at least some rounds and, in response: adjusting sequences with which options are presented to cause options voted upon favorably by at least some group members to appear earlier in the respective round for other group members; and determining whether a sufficient amount of votes for an option have been received to designate the respective round as complete; and informing a group member of a decision by the group.. . ... Retailmenot Inc

Reducing the search space for recognition of objects in an image based on wireless signals

Provided is a process including: determining that a mobile computing device has crossed a geofence associated with a merchant store; sending, to a remote classifier server, a request for object-recognition classifiers for objects in the merchant store; receiving a set of object-recognition classifiers; receiving with the mobile computing device from user a request to search for offers; capturing an image with a camera of the mobile computing device; receiving one or more wireless beacon identifiers with the mobile computing device; based on the wireless beacon identifiers, selecting a subset of the object-recognition classifiers in the set of object-recognition classifiers; and recognizing an object in the captured image based on the selected subset of the object-recognition classifiers; and requesting, from a remote offer publisher server, offers corresponding to the recognized object; and receiving offers from the remote offer publisher server; and displaying the received offers to the user.. . ...
