  • Patent number: 11131849
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system includes a processor(s) utilizing the image capture device to track eye movements of a user interacting with a display communicatively coupled to the one or more processors, the image capture device continuously collecting image data. The processor(s) determines, based on analyzing the collected image data, a probability of whether a user may be experiencing a vision-related issue. Based on the probability being within a given pre-determined range, the processor(s) identifies the vision-related issue experienced by the user. The processor(s) generates, based on the vision-related issue, a two dimensional visual exercise to address the vision-related issue for performance by the user. The processor(s) deploys a graphical user interface to the display, where the graphical user interface comprises the visual exercise. The processor(s) provides the visual exercise to the user via the graphical user interface.

  • Patent number: 10884646
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, system, and computer program product for managing a storage system. Data associated with a set of tags is identified by a computer system using a policy, wherein the policy defines the set of tags for a set of types of data used in a process performed in an organization using data in the storage system. A set of storage tiers for the data associated with the set of tags is determined by the computer system using the policy. The policy defines the set of storage tiers for the data associated with the set of tags when the data associated with the set of tags is used by the process. The data associated with the set of tags is moved by the computer system to the set of storage tiers as determined using the policy.

  • Patent number: 10778442
    Abstract: In a distributed network hosting a shared pool of configurable computing resources there is provided one or more system instances of a blockchain. Each system instance comprises a virtual machine and a set of containers. The containers are members of the blockchain in that the blockchain's public ledger records encrypted copies of at least selected directories of each container. Each container that is in the set can thus verify whether any other container also belongs to the same set with reference to the public ledger, since the transactions recorded on the public ledger are encrypted copies of the set's containers. The use of a blockchain thus allows a system boundary to be defined around a set of containers by the initial specification of the blockchain. The system boundary can be defined to ensure that the set of containers comply with legal requirements, such as a geographic restriction.
