  • Patent number: 10096353
    Abstract: A refresh command is communicated to a memory device to initiate an interruptible refresh which contains multiple segment refreshes separated by interrupt boundaries. A command is communicated to the memory device before execution of a segment refresh and the segment refresh is delayed at an interrupt boundary. Alternatively, a first number of commands in a queue is determined. A first number of segment refreshes to execute is determined based on the first number of commands. The first number of segment refreshes to execute is communicated to the memory device to cause execution of the first number of segment refreshes. A second number of commands in the queue is determined. A second number of segment refreshes to execute is determined based on the second number of commands. The second number of segment refreshes to execute is communicated to the memory device to cause execution of the second number of segment refreshes.

  • Patent number: 10091180
    Abstract: Methods and systems for behavioral profiling, and in particular, utilizing crowd-managed data architectures to store and manage that profile, are described. In some embodiments, a method includes observing behavioral characteristics of user interactions during a current session with the user through one of a plurality of channels. Variations between the behavioral characteristics of the user interactions observed during the current session and a behavioral profile previously developed based on prior usage patterns of the user through the plurality of channels are identified, in real-time or near real-time.

  • Patent number: 10013984
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the technology described herein alleviate the need to specifically request enrollment information from a user to enroll the user in a voice biometric authentication program. For example, after receiving a call from a user, the system can identify the user and analyze the user's biometric information when the user speaks a command or request. The system can use the user's spoken command or request as enrollment information for the particular command or request or for all spoken requests. After enrollment into the voice biometric authentication program, the system can authenticate the user using biometric information before fulfilling requests or commands.

  • Patent number: 10013983
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for authenticating a user using a voice biometric program are described. In some embodiments, first voice data from a user device is received. The first voice data can include audio data of a user speaking a first voice command, and the system can determine that the first voice command includes a voice command for which voice recognition can be performed. In response, the system can initiate a passive authentication scheme for selectively enabling access to secure data in response to the first voice command. The passive authentication scheme can provide the first voice data for voice recognition and receive an indication that the user is authenticated based on the voice recognition and, in response, allow access to a back-end system.

The segment refreshes are separated by interrupt boundaries. A command is received before execution of a segment refresh. The first command is executed and execution of the first segment refresh is delayed at a first interrupt boundary. Alternatively, a first number of segment refreshes to execute is received from a memory controller. The received first number of segment refreshes is executed. A second number of segment refreshes to execute is received from a memory controller. The received second number of segment refreshes is executed. No segment refreshes are executed between the execution of the first number of segment refreshes and the execution of the second number of segment refreshes.
