  • Publication number: 20200387899
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to a system, method, or computer program product for a control system for single resource distribution via a portal. With the single portal for resource distribution and secure card-control system capabilities, the user can stay in control of the resource distribution at a merchant location. The invention may provide a linkage between a merchant and user device for user device display of the single resource distribution portal. Upon authorization, the system may perform analysis and presentation of resource distribution for a merchant offering and user resource power in a hierarchical approach. The user is able to authorize resource distribution and secondary resource distribution in real-time without physical resource distribution exchange.

  • Patent number: 10789540
    Abstract: Generate an automorphism of the problem graph, determine an embedding of the automorphism to the hardware graph and modify the embedding of the problem graph into the hardware graph to correspond to the embedding of the automorphism to the hardware graph. Determine an upper-bound on the required chain strength. Calibrate and record properties of the component of a quantum processor with a digital processor, query the digital processor for a range of properties. Generate a bit mask and change the sign of the bias of individual qubits according to the bit mask before submitting a problem to a quantum processor, apply the same bit mask to the bit result. Generate a second set of parameters of a quantum processor from a first set of parameters via a genetic algorithm.

  • Publication number: 20200034737
    Abstract: Systems are presented for generating a natural language model. The system may comprise a database module, an application program interface (API) module, a background processing module, and an applications module, each stored on the at least one memory and executable by the at least one processor. The system may be configured to generate the natural language model by: ingesting training data, generating a hierarchical data structure, selecting a plurality of documents among the training data to be annotated, generating an annotation prompt for each document configured to elicit an annotation about said document, receiving the annotation based on the annotation prompt, and generating the natural language model using an adaptive machine learning process configured to determine patterns among the annotations for how the documents in the training data are to be subdivided according to the at least two topical nodes of the hierarchical data structure.
