  • Patent number: 10750008
    Abstract: Methods and systems described in this disclosure receive a call from a caller, generate a first session through a first channel associated with the caller when the call is received and then send a request for authentication credentials to a device associated with the caller. In some embodiments, sending the request for authentication credentials generates a second session through a second channel associated with the caller. The caller can be authenticated to the first session using communication received during the second session through the second channel.

  • Patent number: 10712674
    Abstract: This document describes a method of determining an overlay error during manufacturing of a multilayer semiconductor device. Manufacturing of the semiconductor device comprises forming a stack of material layers comprising depositing of at least two subsequent patterned layers of semiconductor material, the patterned layers comprising a first patterned layer having a first marker element and a second patterned layer having a second marker element. The determining of the overlay error comprises determining relative positions of the first and second marker element in relation to each other, such as to determine the overlay error between the first patterned layer and the second patterned layer. In addition an imaging step is performed on at least one of said first and second patterned layer, for determining relative positions of the respective first or second marker element and a pattern feature of a device pattern comprised by said respective first and second patterned layer.

  • Patent number: 10715467
    Abstract: A chat system implementing AI-based support chat profiles may receive and process one or more user chat inputs from a user terminal. The chat system may select a support chat profile based on the processed user chat input. The chat system may generate one or more AI chat responses based on the processed user chat input and the support chat profile. The chat system may determine a confidence level of each AI chat response. The chat system may generate a support response. In response to the confidence level of the AI chat response being greater than a predetermined level, the support response may be generated to comprise the AI chat response.

  • Publication number: 20200104855
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program product for granting access and/or an authorization are disclosed. For instance, a computer-implemented method may include receiving a first sequence of plurality of biometric data elements. The sequence of plurality of biometric data elements may comprise a biometric passphrase. The method may include registering the biometric passphrase to a known user and/or a transaction account. The method may include receiving a transaction request comprising a second sequence of plurality of biometric data elements. The method may include comparing the second sequence of plurality of biometric data elements to the biometric passphrase to resulting in a confidence factor of the comparison. The comparison may include comparing the sequencing of the second sequence of plurality of biometric data elements and the characteristics of each biometric data element of the second sequence of plurality of biometric data elements to the biometric passphrase.

  • Patent number: 10515384
    Abstract: A system may store a first merchant identifier in response to a registration of a first merchant and a user identifier in response to a registration of a user. The system may also store an access permission to control access by the first merchant to a first context. The access permission may be configured for retrieval by a query including at least one of the user identifier or the first merchant identifier. A user may access the system using a voice personal assistant. The system may authenticate the user based on spoken input to the voice personal assistant. The system may return the first context in response to a first application programming interface (API) call and in response to the access permission authorizing access to the first context. The system may facilitate transactions using a voice personal assistant.
