  • Patent number: 11551016
    Abstract: A transaction card may monitor an amount of electric current induced in a first near-field communication (NFC) component of a transaction card. Electric current may be induced in the first NFC component when the first NFC component is within an electromagnetic field generated by a second NFC component of a transaction terminal. The transaction card may dynamically activate one or more output components associated with the transaction card based on the amount of electric current induced in the first NFC component. The one or more output components may indicate whether the transaction card can communicate with the transaction terminal. The transaction card may perform an action related to completing a transaction after determining that the amount of electric current induced in the NFC component satisfies a first threshold. The first threshold may indicate that the transaction card can communicate with the transaction terminal.

  • Patent number: 11507791
    Abstract: A transaction card may power on the transaction card using electric current induced from an interaction of the transaction card with an electromagnetic field. The transaction card may establish a communication with a device. The communication may indicate that the transaction card has powered. The transaction card may receive, from the device, a set of instructions to configure a set of applets on the transaction card after notifying the device that the transaction card has powered on. The set of applets to be configured may be related to completing one or more different transactions. The set of applets to be configured may be different than another set of applets already configured on the transaction card. The transaction card may configure the set of applets on the transaction card according to the set of instructions after receiving the set of instructions.

  • Patent number: 11436580
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for the deposit, withdrawal, and reuse of currency for transactions. According to disclosed embodiments, an intelligent teller machine (ITM) is configured to receive currency as payment for a transaction, to calculate and dispense any change due, and to request that the net value of the transaction (e.g., the revenue) be deposited into the financial account of the business. The currency received by the ITM is also available to make change for future purchase transactions.

  • Publication number: 20220270083
    Abstract: A transaction card includes a near-field communication (NFC) component, a security component, a wireless component, one or more memories, and one or more processors communicatively coupled to the one or more memories. The device receives a signal from a user device attempting to access a secure application, and energizes the NFC component based on the signal received from the user device. The device causes the security component to generate an encrypted code based on the NFC component being energized, and provides, via the security component, the encrypted code to the wireless component. The device provides, via the wireless component, the encrypted code to the user device to permit the user device to utilize the encrypted code as authentication for accessing the secure application.

  • Publication number: 20220147997
    Abstract: A wearable device receives ticket information for an event and information indicating a quantity of funds allocated from an account, associated with a user of a user device, to the wearable device, and stores the ticket information and the information indicating the quantity of funds. The wearable device utilizes a wireless component to pair the wearable device and the user device, and provides, to the user device and via the wireless component, the ticket information and information indicating access privileges for the event. The wearable device generates a token for a PoS device for a charge incurred at the event during an offline transaction with the PoS device, and provides, via a NFC component, the token to the PoS device. The wearable device provides, to the user device and via the wireless component, information indicating that that the token was provided to the PoS device.

  • Publication number: 20220114491
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and programs for privately and securely providing accurate machine learning models to anonymous clients for various applications. Discrete model classes of models are trained on non-anonymous datasets at a centralized server and served to anonymous clients. Clients validate each model against its own localized datasets and retain the most accurate model. Clients improve their model locally through transfer learning on new datasets, and share the updated, anonymized parameters with a centralized computer. The centralized server aggregates and updates model parameters for each respective discrete model class. The improved models may be served to future and existing clients.

  • Publication number: 20220101285
    Abstract: Systems and methods for initiating and/or facilitating a financial transaction in response to detecting and translating a spatial gesture may be provided. A payor transaction device may be capable of detecting, via a motion-detecting device, a payor spatial gesture corresponding to a payment gesture of one or more predetermined spatial gestures and, responsive to detecting the payor spatial gesture, receiving payee account information from a payee transaction device. The payor transaction device may also be capable of transmitting, to a payor computing device, transaction data comprising the payee account information and data indicative of the payor spatial gesture. The payor computing device may be capable of transmitting at least a portion of the transaction data to a financial service provider terminal to enable the financial service provider terminal to facilitate the requested transaction.

  • Publication number: 20220074914
    Abstract: In order to predict plant stresses at a localized level, data feeds from many sensor types can be fused and analyzed to create a synthetic sensor estimating plant water stress, predicting microclimatic conditions, and performing localized plant disease and pest modeling. To make this affordable, an array of low-cost, lower precision sensors can be used. Sensor fusion is used to improve the accuracy of each sensing element by using machine learning to fuse data from the other sensing elements in the array. Additionally, machine learning can create a “synthetic sensor” replicating the output of high-cost and maintenance intensive sensing devices by using machine learning to replicate their output.

  • Publication number: 20220019999
    Abstract: A system for securely updating an electronic transaction card held by an account holder with an additional account and/or account data is described. A dynamic transaction card may be securely updated with an additional account by using pre-stored shell data and/or inactive data, whereby the pre-stored shell data may be populated using data received from an issuer system and/or the inactive data may be activated via an activation signal received from a mobile device. A backend server may determine, via a fraud determination, expiration determination, and/or user-request, that new account data should be transmitted to an account holder. The dynamic transaction card may receive the data associated with a notification, update a display, instruct an EMV applet to use a key associated with a received EMV key identifier for signatures, and/or update any additional data stored on the dynamic transaction card.

  • Publication number: 20210374745
    Abstract: A device may determine that a verification method associated with a transaction card is to be modified from a first verification method to a second verification method. The first verification method and the second verification method may use different types of verification information. The device may provide a set of instructions to the transaction card after determining that the verification method is to be modified. The set of instructions may cause the transaction card to modify the verification method from the first verification method to the second verification method. The device may provide information identifying a modification to the verification method to a transaction backend device to notify the transaction backend device that the verification method associated with the transaction card has been modified from the first verification method to the second verification method.
