Money packages


Ask a computer what you can get by putting in a money amount in and it shall tell you a package of goods and services that when combined offer something useful to you in return for that money.. so if you put enough cash for a home renovation it shall show you ideas for a house renovation and be fully costed. If you have certain electronics it shall recommend what electronics to buy based on what you have such as accessories.


Imagine a database of products and services. Then you match packages of products and services of a particular theme together and sell someone a package of them together.

So if you also had a database of what you have you can predict what someone might want based on what they have. And what they don't have you can recommend something to buy.

// 以 £a b c 的价格购买这些

也许这只是 k-means 之类的聚类。


// "people that bought this also bought this."

Amazon recommends generally based on collaborative filtering.

// buy these for £a+b+c

Perhaps that's just k-means-like clustering.

There are many more complex methods, but those do not do true intent inference: those are associations based on trends, not understanding true intent of user.


想象一下,注册一家通过规模经济为您提供服务的公司。因此,您将 100% 的工资分配给他们,他们为您分配食物、交通和住所。

The reason I want this is that I want to do this for salaries.

Imagine registering for a company that does economy of scale to provide services to you. So you allocate 100% of your salary to them and they allocate you food, transport and shelter.

亚马逊在产品页面上有一个部分,上面写着“买了这个的人也买了这个”。然后它说以 a b c 的价格购买这些。我不确定它是否能让你以更便宜的价格购买它,但我从来没有买过它们。我在我最近买的书上看到了它。还有另一本书是人们用我的书买的。

Yes recommendation systems could be used to calculate what other people have and could use reviews for feedback.

Amazon has a section on a product page that says "people that bought this also bought this." And then it says buy these for £a+b+c. I'm not sure if it lets you buy it for cheaper but I've never bought one of them. I saw it for my book I bought recently..there was another book that people bought with my book.


Like an extrapolating recommender based on your current trend and the money threshold?

Mindey 我希望它用于步行和公共交通。

例如,我想看看我在 10-20 分钟内能走多远。公共汽车站或火车站附近可能有我不知道的商店。


Mindey I want that for walking and public transport usage.

For example, I want to see how far I can get within 10-20 minutes. There may be shops near bus stations or train stations I don't know of.

But yes the number of items you can purchase for a set amount of money is interesting computationally. I think it's a variation of the calculating coins to use to give change or to bin pack items in a crate or shipping package.

这会像谷歌地图一样,在那里你可以得到一个列表,列出你可以用给定数量的燃料旅行到的所有地点? (即,您输入燃料量,它会显示可能从某个位置 X 走的所有道路)我们也可以用钱制作那种地图:过滤产品组合(可能的篮子),但组合起来会具有爆炸性——即使使用简单的地图和燃料,它也已经具有爆炸性,因为道路上的每一个岔路口都会带来新的可能的旅行组合。你必须限制你的查询,比如说——在给定数量的燃料/金钱的情况下,你能走的最远距离是多少。

Would this be like Google maps, where you could get a list of all locations that you can travel to with a given amount of fuel? (i.e., you enter the amount of fuel, and it shows all the roads that could possibly be taken from a location X) We could do that kind of map with money too: filter of product combinations (possible baskets), but combinatorially that would be explosive -- it is already explosive even with simple maps and fuel, because every forking on the road leads to new possible travel combination. You have to constrain your query to, say, -- what's the furthest you could go with given amount of fuel / money.
