  • Patent number: 11912466
    Abstract: A fuel container having a body defining a volume for receiving fuel. The body has an inlet and optionally a vent. The inlet extends upwards as a spout and has a threaded collar which is closed by a threaded cap. A gas expansion pathway is provided between the inlet and the vent. The spout has a guide for receiving and locating a dog-leg portion of a fuel dispenser nozzle. A restriction in the throat of the spout prevents the fuel dispenser nozzle from being inserted beyond a preselected distance into the container thereby preventing backwash and spillage.

  • Publication number: 20240020915
    Abstract: Techniques include introducing a neural generator configured to produce novel faces that can be rendered at free camera viewpoints (e.g., at any angle with respect to the camera) and relit under an arbitrary high dynamic range (HDR) light map. A neural implicit intrinsic field takes a randomly sampled latent vector as input and produces as output per-point albedo, volume density, and reflectance properties for any queried 3D location. These outputs are aggregated via a volumetric rendering to produce low resolution albedo, diffuse shading, specular shading, and neural feature maps. The low resolution maps are then upsampled to produce high resolution maps and input into a neural renderer to produce relit images.

  • Patent number: 11848754
    Abstract: The disclosed technology teaches a method for delegating user access to one of a set of decentralized networked nodes that share a private permissioned blockchain data structure or a decentralized personal ledger. The method also includes a credentialing logic configured to receive from one of a set of decentralized networked nodes, authority to access a network node to invoke services that conduct operations using a private permissioned blockchain data structure or decentralized personal ledger to which access has been limited to users authorized by one of the set of decentralized networked nodes; and an access delegation logic configured to create a delegation of at least some of the authority to access the network node for a limited duration of time and to send the delegation to a recipient identified to receive delegated authority.

  • Patent number: 11818246
    Abstract: The present invention provides a Multipath blockchain capability to verify blockchain data integrity based on transactions linked to entities that may be device-based or otherwise. Based on an entity's needs, in one embodiment, the Multipath blockchain capability enables the entity reading a block linked to the entity to directly point to only that entity's transactions. The entity's pointer to each path type may be associated with each data record. In an embodiment, each entity's transaction is a separate unit; not bundled with other entity's transactions. Each of these transactions or blocks may be linked to that entity's previous block.

  • Publication number: 20230315524
    Abstract: Techniques for algorithmically optimized determination of resource assignments in machine request analyses are described, including receiving a request having resource request data and criteria data, evaluating the request to identify a resource type and a suitability matrix, which are analyzed to generate a data model, to select an algorithm to apply to the data model, to evaluate an output from the algorithm being applied to the data model to generate a resultant dataset, including evaluating another resultant dataset generated by applying another algorithm to another data model generated using the request data, the criteria data, the resource type, and the suitability matrix, to generate an optimization cost for each solution indicating the resource to be assigned to the request, and to transmit a resultant dataset identifying the one or more resources based on the optimization cost.

  • Patent number: 11769577
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for authenticating requestors and granting access to a permissioned blockchain network shared among enterprise entities. A decentralized registry of credentialed users, in which credentialed users guard their own access information by keeping a private key of a public-private keypair enables systems to avoid keeping information of a large number of users in large, vulnerable containers. A further method removes authenticated users seeking to be forgotten from the registry of users and deletes any personally identifiable information of the withdrawing users.

  • Patent number: 11741215
    Abstract: The disclosed technology teaches an implementation for leveraging self-sovereign credentials held on mobile devices to provision credentials that empower one party (“recipient” or “user”, used synonymously herein) to obtain credentialed access to information and resources on behalf of another party (“sender” or “administrator”, used synonymously herein), without either party exposing private key information to each other or to the cloud. The sender is able to revoke user credentials at any time. Parties are able to leverage commodity hardware to automatically mutually authenticate their credentials and access available relevant options and workflows.
