  • Patent number: 11397760
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, a computer system, and a computer program product for managing relationships between persons and physical objects based on identifiers. A computer system configures a user device to be capable of interacting with each of a first database and a second database. The computer system verifies, by interacting with the second database, that a given object of the physical objects is a genuine object, based on a given object identifier of the given object and a digital fingerprint detected from a physical fingerprint of the given object. The computer system requests, via the first database, a transfer of a given relationship from a first person to a second person with respect to the given object, based on the given object identifier and a person identifier of the second person.

  • Patent number: 11038984
    Abstract: The present invention is notably directed to a computer-implemented method of accessing data by an application. The method comprises detecting an application that is accessing an initial file stored in a storage system; fetching an application model of the detected application, the application model comprising an association between access patterns of the detected application when accessing first files with first metadata information of the said first files; identifying one or more second files stored in the storage system, the identified one or more second files having second metadata information that are similar to the first metadata information; and prefetching the identified one or more second files.

  • Publication number: 20210158372
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, a computer system, and a computer program product for managing ownership of physical objects based on identifiers. A computer system provides an ownership database storing pairs of object identifiers and owner identifiers, and the ownership database is in data communication with a computerized transaction system. Upon the computerized transaction system triggering a transaction protocol for a transaction for a respective one of the physical objects, at the ownership database independently of the computerized transaction system, a process of transferring an ownership of the respective one of the physical objects is executed. In response to receiving a request to change the ownership from a buyer, the ownership database records a buyer identifier of the buyer as a new owner identifier associated with an object identifier of the respective one of the physical objects.

  • Patent number: 10353608
    Abstract: A device and method for determining number of storage devices for each of plurality of storage tiers and assignment of data to be stored in the plurality of storage tiers. The device computes an optimized number of storage devices for each tier including a classifier, which receives units as input data to be stored in the system. Based on the characteristics of the storage devices, the device outputs a data-unit-to-storage tier assignment. An optimizer receives data-unit-to-storage tier assignment from the classifier and a cost budget for the system. Thereafter, an output for the number of storage devices for each storage tier is calculated. A method for determining number of storage devices for each of a plurality of storage tiers and assignment of data to be stored in the plurality of storage tiers are also provided.
