  • Patent number: 10244113
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described for determining customer service quality through digitized voice characteristic measurement and filtering. A voice analysis module captures a first digitized voice segment corresponding to speech submitted by a user of a remote device. The voice analysis module extracts a first set of voice features from the first voice segment, and determines an emotion level of the user based upon the first set of voice features. The voice analysis module captures a second digitized voice segment corresponding to speech submitted by the user. The voice analysis module extracts a second set of voice features from the second voice segment, and determines a change in the emotion level of the user by comparing the first set of voice features to the second set of voice features. The module normalizes the change in the emotion level of the user using emotion influence factors, and generates a service score.

  • Patent number: 10244286
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described for recommending digital content in a network environment. A web server determines a session context of a user associated with a remote device in which the user interacted with digital content objects. The web server identifies prior content interactions in which prior users interacted with digital content objects. The web server builds a recommendation feature vector from the session context and the prior content interactions. The web server trains a machine learning model using the generated recommendation feature vector to minimize a predicted rating. The web server selects target digital content objects that have a predicted rating of the user that is at a threshold. The web server provides indicia of the selected digital content objects to the remote device. The web server causes at least one of the selected target digital content objects to be transmitted from a content server to the remote device.

  • Patent number: 10157421
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described herein for securely analyzing transaction data of a user. A server computing device establishes a secure connection with a client device, which transmits transaction data to the server. The server establishes a hierarchy of nodes to profile a user's purchase history. The hierarchy includes a plurality of article nodes and category nodes. The server creates a new article node instance corresponding to the transaction data, the new article node storing descriptive properties of at least one item purchased by the user determined from the transaction data. The server links the new article node instance to at least one of the category nodes by classifying the descriptive properties of the item purchased with respect to relationships defined by the hierarchy. The server generates and transmits an event trigger to remind the user of a follow-up action and authenticates the client before the trigger is delivered.

  • Patent number: 10089480
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described for enterprise access control governance in a computerized information technology (IT) architecture. A server generates a first vector space, each node in the first space representing a user of resources in the IT architecture and including attributes of the user. The server generates a second vector space, each node in the second space representing an entitlement to access resources in the IT architecture and including attributes of the entitlement. The server creates an entitlement utility matrix by mapping nodes in the first space to nodes in the second space. The server determines a set of recommended entitlements for a plurality of users based upon the utility matrix. The server determines a discrepancy between the set of recommended entitlements for a first user and a set of existing entitlements for the first user and adjusts the set of existing entitlements based upon the discrepancy.

  • Patent number: 10068082
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enabling multi-factor authentication for a web-based account. A first computing device and a second computing device are accessible to a first user. A backend system is accessible to a second user. The backend system communicates with the second computing device via a secure communication network. The first user creates a web-based account and receives a MFA initiation screen including secret information and a field for entering at least one TOTP token. The backend system has a TOTP token generator. The second computing device captures the secret information and transmits it to the backend system. The second user generates at least one TOTP token using the backend system and transmits the at least one TOTP token to the second computing device. The first user enters the at least one TOTP token into the first computing device. The account can then be validated and MFA enabled.

  • Patent number: 10063542
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method is described for authenticating an identity of a user requesting execution of a computerized transaction via a first client computing device. The first device and a second client computing device in proximity each execute applications for communicating with a server. The first and second devices contemporaneously capture voice sequences including at least one audible sound vocalized by the user, and a timestamp indicating when the sound is captured. The identity of the user is validated based upon a determination that the user vocalized the pass phrase, and a difference between the first timestamp and the second timestamp is below a predetermined threshold. The first device executes a computerized transaction with the server computing device upon receiving validation of the identity of the user.
