  • Publication number: 20200142752
    Abstract: A baseboard management controller (BMC) can physically partition the computing resources of a physical host into different resource groups for concurrently running a different operating system per resource group. The BMC can allocate a first processor of the host to a first resource group and a second processor of the host to a second resource group. The BMC can separate the memory of the host into a first memory range for the first processor and a second memory range for the second processor, and the BMC can limit access to the first memory range to the first processor and limit access to the second memory range to the second processor. The BMC can also distribute physical or virtual peripheral devices of the host between the first processor and the second processor.

  • Publication number: 20200066098
    Abstract: A casino gaming system includes gaming machines which are configured to accept and read tickets. The ticket may comprise cash-value tickets or non-cash value/promotional tickets. The tickets may also include secondary feature triggering indicia. The player may present the cash-value ticket having a feature triggering indicia or a non-cash value/promotional ticket to a gaming machine, such as by inserting it into a media reader such as a bill acceptor. Associated monetary value or non-monetary credits may be credited to the machine. In addition, if the ticket includes a feature triggering indicia, when such an indicia is detected, the gaming machine preferably triggers or initiates the feature.

  • Patent number: 9390418
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program product for processing event records. The present invention includes a detection layer, an analysis layer, an expert systems layer and a presentation layer. The layered system includes a core infrastructure and a configurable, domain-specific implementation. The detection layer employs one or more detection engines, such as, for example, a rules-based thresholding engine and a profiling engine. The detection layer can include an AI-based pattern recognition engine for analyzing data records, for detecting new and interesting patterns and for updating the detection engines to insure that the detection engines can detect the new patterns. In one embodiment, the present invention is implemented as a telecommunications fraud detection system. When fraud is detected, the detection layer generates alarms which are sent to the analysis layer. The analysis layer filters and consolidates the alarms to generate fraud cases.

  • Patent number: 6208720
    Abstract: A configurable and scalable rules-based thresholding system, method and computer program product for processing event records includes a core infrastructure and a configurable domain-specific implementation. The core infrastructure is generically employed regardless of the actual type of network being monitored. The domain-specific implementation is provided with user specific data and rules. The core infrastructure includes an event record enhancer which enhances events with additional data and a threshold detector which determines whether an enhanced event record, alone or in light of prior event records, exceeds one or more thresholds. The enhancer can access external databases for additional information related to an event record. In one embodiment, the enhancer generates feature vectors to represent enhanced event records. The threshold detector receives enhanced event records from the event record enhancer.
