  • Publication number: 20180285839
    Abstract: A data management system is disclosed for data provenance and data storage that allows multiple independent parties (who may not trust each other) to securely share data, track data provenance, maintain audit logs, keep data synchronized, comply with regulations, and handle permissioning and control who can access the data. The system leverages security guarantees derived from the computer systems already trusted to control billions of dollars of Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies to create a secure and completely auditable system of document tracking that can be shared among untrusted parties over a computer network. Certain instances work both with public blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum and with private blockchains.

  • Publication number: 20160300222
    Abstract: Various embodiments include a method of facilitating identity information exchange in a cryptocurrency transaction. An information compliance computer system can receive a pending cryptocurrency transaction from a transmitter wallet service system for managing one or more user wallet accounts, each associated with one or more cryptographically verifiable addresses in a cryptocurrency exchange network. The information compliance computer system can identify a recipient wallet service system associated with a destination address indicated by the pending cryptocurrency transaction. Information compliance computer system can exchange identity information between the transmitter wallet service system and the recipient wallet service system. The information compliance computer system can publish the pending cryptocurrency transaction to the cryptocurrency exchange network for inclusion into a block chain of the cryptocurrency network.

  • Patent number: 9430719
    Abstract: An embodiment provides for enabling retrieval of a collection of captured images that form at least a portion of a library of images. For each image in the collection, a captured image may be analyzed to recognize information from image data contained in the captured image, and an index may be generated, where the index data is based on the recognized information. Using the index, functionality such as search and retrieval is enabled. Various recognition techniques, including those that use the face, clothing, apparel, and combinations of characteristics may be utilized. Recognition may be performed on, among other things, persons and text carried on objects.

  • Publication number: 20160203477
    Abstract: Various embodiments include a wallet service that processes a cryptocurrency deposit into a cryptocurrency wallet account maintained in a wallet service system. The wallet service can receive an authentication parameter to authenticate the cryptocurrency deposit and record a transfer of a cryptocurrency amount from a first cryptocurrency address to a second cryptocurrency address. In response to and substantially immediately after authenticating the authentication parameter, the wallet service can exchange the cryptocurrency amount associated with the cryptocurrency deposit for fiat currency proceeds and deposit the fiat currency proceeds into a fiat reserve account. The wallet service can then associate exchangeable credit equal to the fiat currency proceeds to the cryptocurrency wallet account.

  • Patent number: 9008435
    Abstract: Embodiments enable searching of portions of objects in images, including programmatically analyzing each image in a collection in order to determine image data that, for individual images in the collection, represents one or more visual characteristics of a portion of an object shown in that image. A user is enabled to specify one or more search criteria that includes image data, and a search result may be determined based on one or more images in the collection that show a corresponding object that has a portion that satisfies a threshold. The threshold is defined at least in part by the one or more search criteria.
