  • Patent number: 10990492
    Abstract: A transaction terminals reports information regarding operation of terminal to a server-based analyzer. The analyzer labels the information and normalizes the labeled information into a model format. The analyzer reports the model format to a problem identifier/resolver. The problem identifier/resolver identifies a closest likely problem and a resolution for that closest likely problem based on the labeled information in the model format and reports the likely problem and resolution back to the analyzer for resolution on the transaction terminal.

  • Patent number: 10990968
    Abstract: A method includes receiving selection of an audible audio clip by a user, receiving transaction details including an indication of an amount and an identification of an account number associated with the user and corresponding to a pre-staged transaction, encoding the transaction details into an inaudible audio clip, and combining the audible audio clip and the inaudible audio clip into a transferrable audio file that when played, identifies the pre-staged transaction for execution. The pre-staged transaction may be initiated by receiving an audio rendering of the audio file, determining a duration and a size of the audible portion, decoding the inaudible portion to determine transaction details, including an amount and account identification, and the duration and size of the audible portion, validating the transaction based on the decoded and determined duration and size of the audible portion matching, and executing the transaction responsive to validation and the decoded transaction details.

  • Patent number: 10984239
    Abstract: Various embodiments herein each include at least one of systems, methods, software, and data structures for context-aided machine vision. For example, one method embodiment includes identifying a customer in a shopping area and maintaining an item bin in a computing system of data identifying items the customer has picked up for purchase. This method further includes receiving an image of the customer holding an item and performing item identification processing on the image to identify the item the customer is holding. The item identification processing may be performed based in part on a stored shopping history of the customer indicating items the customer is more likely to purchase. The identified item is then added to the item bin of the customer.

  • Patent number: 10977214
    Abstract: A document image is obtained and fine-grain item-specific information within the document image is encrypted with varying levels of encryption, each encryption level associated is with a specific security access role. When the document image is presented to an end-user, the end-user's security access role determines which portions of the fine-grain item-specific information is decrypted and which portions remain encrypted, such that some portions of the document image are obfuscated from the end-user based on the end-user's security access role.

  • Patent number: 10969622
    Abstract: A multi-pixel display panel can display an image that includes an informational element. A multi-element backlight panel can backlight the display panel. A controller coupled to the display panel and the backlight panel can control the backlight panel to illuminate the informational element more brightly or more dimly than portions of the image away from the informational element. In some examples, the controller can illuminate personal information more dimly than portions of the image away from the personal information, which can provide privacy for a user. In some examples, the controller can illuminate a prompt for a user action more brightly than portions of the image away from the prompt, which can call attention of the user to the prompt. In some examples, the controller can adjust an illumination level of at least a portion of the backlight panel in response to a sensed ambient light level.

  • Patent number: 10964141
    Abstract: An Internet-of-Things (IoT)-enabled lock is provided to control access to a secure physical asset. Disparate authorized systems make requests for an access and receive authorization to access the asset. An authorized user with an authorized mobile device is dispatched to the asset pursuant to a request. Proximity-based mobile device authentication is performed when the mobile device is in a configured proximity of the asset and the mobile device establishes a wireless connection to the lock. A second factor authentication is performed on the user that operated the mobile device. A One-Time Code (OTC) is generated and provided to either the lock or the mobile device for access to the asset. Access events and service information for the asset are stored in a shared data repository. Each system has access through to the shared data repository to all auditing information associated with the asset.
