  • Patent number: 10798116
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a data analysis system that may automatically generate memory-efficient clustered data structures, automatically analyze those clustered data structures, and provide results of the automated analysis in an optimized way to an analyst. The automated analysis of the clustered data structures (also referred to herein as data clusters) may include an automated application of various criteria or rules so as to generate a compact, human-readable analysis of the data clusters. The human-readable analyses (also referred to herein as “summaries” or “conclusions”) of the data clusters may be organized into an interactive user interface so as to enable an analyst to quickly navigate among information associated with various data clusters and efficiently evaluate those data clusters in the context of, for example, a fraud investigation. Embodiments of the present disclosure also relate to automated scoring of the clustered data structures.

  • Patent number: 10775549
    Abstract: A lighting display assembly for use with a display monitor includes a light guide plate and a light source. The light guide plate is formed from a single piece of material that is transparent to visible light. The light guide plate includes a center opening extending between its front and rear surfaces and defining an inner sidewall. The light source is configured to emit visible light and is positioned facing the inner sidewall so that light emitted therefrom passes through the inner sidewall and into the light guide plate. A pattern is formed in the light guide plate and positioned to be illuminated by the visible light emitted from the light source so that the illuminated pattern is visible through the front surface of the light guide plate. The lighting display assembly is mounted behind a display monitor and is sized to extend laterally beyond an outer peripheral edge of the display monitor such that the illuminated pattern is visible from in front of the display monitor.

  • Patent number: 10778416
    Abstract: A method of refreshing key material is described for use in a trusted execution environment logically protected from a regular execution environment. The trusted execution environment further comprises a key identifier. New key material is received at the trusted execution environment to replace existing key material. The key identifier is set to a new value to indicate that new key material is present. The new value of the key identifier is provided directly or indirectly to other parties in association with cryptographic outputs provided by the trusted execution environment using the refreshed key material. This approach is described in connection with an application executing securely on a mobile device.
