  • Patent number: 11956366
    Abstract: The present invention comprises a computer-implemented zero-trust authentication method that utilizes the Bitcoin Lightning Network, which is the sole protocol offering immediate, immutable, and cost-free Bitcoin settlement. A user requests access to the resource of a service provider and the user provides authentication material necessary to securely access the service provider. The service provider initiates a Hold Invoice via a cryptographic function to generate a pre-image hash, instructing the user to authorize release of Bitcoin in an amount stipulated by the Hold Invoice. Bitcoin is held in the Hold Invoice until an authentication attempt is either successful or unsuccessful. If successful, the user is issued an access token to login into the resource, the Hold Invoice is canceled and Bitcoin is released to the user. If unsuccessful, the pre-image is revealed, the user is denied access, and Bitcoin is transferred to the service provider as a settled payment transaction.

  • Patent number: 11948042
    Abstract: A system and method for communicating at least one of updated configuration information and hardware setup recommendations to a user of an ID decoding vision system is provided. An image of an object containing one or more IDs is acquired with a mobile device. The ID associated with the object is decoded to derive information. Physical dimensions of the ID associated with the object are determined. Based on the information and the dimensions, configuration data can be transmitted to a remote server that automatically determines setup information for the vision system based upon the configuration data. The remote server thereby transmits at least one of (a) updated configuration information to the vision system and (b) hardware setup recommendations to a user of the vision system based upon the configuration data.

  • Patent number: 11944440
    Abstract: An implantable device for estimating neural recruitment arising from a stimulus, has a plurality of electrodes. A stimulus source provides stimuli to be delivered from the electrodes to neural tissue. Measurement circuitry obtains a measurement of a neural signal sensed at the electrodes. A control unit is configured to control application of a selected stimulus to neural tissue using the stimulus electrodes; and after the selected neural stimulus, apply a probe stimulus having a short pulse width. A remnant neural response evoked by the probe stimulus is measured; and the control unit estimates from the remnant neural response a neural recruitment caused by the selected neural stimulus.
