  • Publication number: 20180359226
    Abstract: The computer receives customer registration information and encryption parameters from a customer, then transmits them to the server of an entity such as a pharmacy or bank. After the entity utilizes the transmitted encryption parameters to encrypt confidential portions of a message to the customer, the computer captures the message by way of receiving, photographing, scanning, or otherwise obtaining a copy of the message. The computer identifies glyphs in the message indicative of the corresponding encryption parameters as well as where the encrypted portions of the message start/end. Using the identified glyphs and corresponding encryption parameters, the computer decrypts the confidential portions of the message and displays the message in entirety on the computer.

  • Patent number: 10121513
    Abstract: Systems and methods for dynamic image content overlaying are disclosed. In embodiments, a computer-implemented method comprises analyzing one or more digital image frames for the presence of a placeholder, wherein the placeholder overlays a dynamic image space on a display object and includes a content identifier and a contour mesh; determining the content identifier; retrieving select image content based on the content identifier; determining an orientation of the dynamic image space; transforming the select image content to produce transformed image content that matches the contour mesh and the orientation of the dynamic image space; and replacing the placeholder with the transformed image content to produce a set of one or more embedded image frames.

  • Publication number: 20180211343
    Abstract: A method, executed by a computer, includes determining, via machine learning, skills associated with various positions in an organization, receiving a profile for a user including a current position for the user, and receiving a target position for the user. The method further includes determining from the profile for the user and the skills associated with various positions in an organization, one or more acquirable skills that would enable the user to achieve the target position from the current position, determining one or more professional development activities that correspond to the acquirable skills, and presenting the acquirable skills and the professional development activities to the user. A computer system and computer product corresponding to the above method are also disclosed herein.

  • Patent number: 9721366
    Abstract: In an approach to displaying data, one or more computer processors receive a plurality of coordinates of an overlay on a graphical data display, such that the plurality of coordinates indicate a position and a size of the overlay. The one or more computer processors retrieve one or more data points from the graphical data display. The one or more computer processors de-emphasize at least a portion of the one or more retrieved data points. The one or more computer processors display, in the overlay, one or more retrieved data points of the graphical data display that reside within the plurality of coordinates of the overlay.

  • Patent number: 9690469
    Abstract: Embodiments include a program for transferring of data from a source computer to a location on a target computer utilizing a drag-and-drop operation and a spring-loaded portal. I/O devices are monitored for mouse input that includes coordinates of a mouse pointer. Whether an end-user is utilizing the mouse pointer to perform the drag-and-drop operation is determined. The spring-loaded portal is expanded from a closed position to an open position. A screen snapshot image of the location on the target computer is retrieved and overlaid on the spring-loaded portal. The transferring of data from the source computer to the location on the target computer is executed, wherein the location on the target computer is previewable at the source computer through the spring-loaded portal. Whether to abort the transferring of data is determined. The spring-loaded portal is minimized from the open position to the closed position.

  • Publication number: 20170093574
    Abstract: In an approach for protecting a resource, a processor receives a resource and a parameter, wherein the parameter indicates a condition upon which the resource will be made accessible. A processor encrypts the resource. A processor associates the parameter with decryption information for the encrypted resource. A processor sends the encrypted resource to a computing device. A processor determines that the condition of the parameter has been met based on external information regarding the parameter. A processor sends the decryption information to the computing device.

  • Publication number: 20160292621
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for automatically identifying a risk that a staffing resource identified by a proposed project-staffing plan will be unavailable. A computerized project-management tool, in response to receiving a proposed project plan, requests, receives, and aggregates information about other past, present, and expected projects and about expected supplies of, and competing demands for, staffing resources required by the proposed plan. The tool infers patterns, business rules, and trends from the received information, with which it adjusts the proposed project's planned start date, expected availabilities of required staffing resources, and expected competition for staffing resources. The tool then determines a likelihood that a sufficient supply of each of the plan's required staffing resources, as adjusted, will be available at the required times, as adjusted. If the risk is too high, the user may fine-tune the proposed plan by repeating the preceding steps with varying project parameters.

  • Patent number: 8965541
    Abstract: A method, a computer program product, and a computer system initiate an exercise sequence on an exercise-integrated workstation. A set of active monitored activities is identified. A set of preferences and goals for the exercise sequence is identified. A set of accumulated details regarding any user modifications to previous exercise sequences is identified. A set of scheduled events is identified. Responsive to identifying the set of active monitored activities, the set of preferences and goals, the set of accumulated details, and the set of scheduled events, the method determines whether to initiate an exercise sequence. Responsive to determining to initiate the exercise sequence, the method initiates the exercise sequence.
