Techniques are provided which facilitate mobile applications displaying advertisements on a larger screen space without worrying about screen clutter or interference with application functionality. Motion events are triggered once a computerized device detects a threshold magnitude of tilt along a first, second, and/or third coordinate axis. A graphical display is presented to the user which includes at least one advertisement. Several embodiments of the graphical display include a three-dimensional object and full-screen display which are maintained so long as a magnitude of tilt of the computerized device is detected.

A computer implemented method determines validity of web-based interactions. Web-based interaction data relating to a web-based interaction may be accessed. The web-based interaction data may include aggregate measure data that may include a number of unique queries per web-based session. The validity of the web-based interaction may be determined based on the aggregate measure data.

A computer-implemented method for providing advertisements in an augmented reality environment to a user includes receiving data related to a marker, the marker placed amongst one or more physical objects captured by the video camera. The computer-implemented method also includes retrieving dynamic digital content associated with the marker. Further, the computer-implemented method includes displaying the dynamic digital content amongst the one or more physical objects. Furthermore, the computer-implemented method includes receiving a user interaction with the dynamic digital content. Moreover, the computer-implemented method includes performing an action based on the user interaction.

Apparatuses, methods, and systems directed to efficient cooling of data centers. Some embodiments of the invention allow encapsulation of cold rows through an enclosure and allow one or more fans to draw cold air from the cold row encapsulation structure to cool servers installed on the server racks. In other particular embodiments, the systems disclosed can be used to mix outside cool air into the cold row encapsulation structure to cool the servers. In some embodiments, the present invention involves fanless servers installed on the server racks and introduces fan units to draw cooling air from the cold row encapsulation structure through the fanless servers on the racks.

A system and method for suggesting a bidding keyword to an advertiser are disclosed. The system includes a non-transitory processor-readable storage medium comprising a set of instructions for suggesting a bidding keyword to an advertiser; and a processor in communication with the storage medium. The processor is configured to execute the set of instruction to receive an advertisement creative from an advertiser; determine, based on the advertisement creative without using an externally input seed keyword, a recommended bidding keyword associated with the advertisement creative; and return the recommended keyword for online advertisement bidding.

Methods, systems, and programs are provided to determine event-level traffic quality for event(s) related to user interaction with online content (e.g., via a webpage, a mobile application, etc.). Data related to a current user event and past user events may be received, where such data may include information regarding a set of entities associated with each respective user event. A feature value set for the current user event is generated based on the information regarding the respective sets of entities associated with the current user event and the past user events. Based at least on such feature value set, a traffic quality score for the current user event may be determined, e.g., based on a weighted combination of elements of the feature value set. An entity-level traffic quality score for an entity may be determined based on event-level traffic quality scores of user events that involve that entity.

A method for providing an advertisement is disclosed. The method, to be implemented on a machine having at least one processor, storage, and a communication platform connected to a network may include receiving a request for an advertisement to be inserted into a content page to be presented to a user. The method further includes selecting an advertisement relevant to the content page and the user based on a content-advertisement index and a user-advertisement index, constructed based on user browsing context, and transmitting information indicative of the selected advertisement as a response to the request. Further disclosed is a method for generating multi-dimensional index. The method, to be implemented on a machine having at least one processor, storage, and a communication platform connected to a network may include generating a content-advertisement index based on at least one content profile and at least one advertisement profile, and generating a user-advertisement index based on at least one user profile and the at least one advertisement profile. The content-advertisement index and the user- advertisement index are used to select a relevant advertisement to be inserted in a content page that is presented to a user.

Media item recommendations, such as music track recommendations, may be made using one or more models generated using data collected from a plurality of media stream sources, such as, for example, Internet radio stations. In an initial, bootstrapping phase, data about media items and media stream playlists of media stream sources may be used to generate a model, which comprises latent factor vectors, or learned profiles, of media items, e.g., tracks, artists, etc. Such a bootstrapping phase may be performed without user data, such as user playlists and/or user feedback, to generate a model that may be used to make media item recommendations. As user data becomes available, e.g., as users of a recommendation service provide user data, the user data may be used to supplement and/or update the model and/or to create user profiles.

Disclosed herein is an ability to identify a supported language. A current language tag including one or more subtags, each subtag providing language identification information. In response to determining that a language referenced by the current language tag is not a supported language, accessing a stored set of mappings including one or more mappings, each mapping associating a first language tag with a second language tag, determining whether or not a mapping in the set of mappings includes the current language tag as one of the first and second language tags and a new language tag as the other of the first and second language tags, and using the new language tag as the current language tag to identify the supported language.
