  • Publication number: 20200213300
    Abstract: A biometric heartrate authentication system and method is disclosed that leverages heartrate information collected by heartrate tracking devices to build a heartrate profile for a client. The system further leverages location information collected by existing location information services to determine an activity profile for a client. The activity profile information may be used together with the heartrate profile to generate an expected heartrate range against which a cardholder heartrate may be compared for authentication purposes. Because client heartrate characteristics are generally unique, varying according to the unique activities being performed by the client at any point in time, the system and method thus provide a low cost, non-invasive method for reliably authenticating individuals and securing against fraudulent account accesses.

  • Publication number: 20200204681
    Abstract: A device receives, from a user device, a communication associated with a support issue encountered by a user of the user device and assigns the communication to a position in a support queue based on when the communication is received, wherein the support queue includes data identifying positions of other communications received from other users, and data identifying when the other communications were received. The device processes data identifying the communication and historical communication data describing prior communications associated with the user, with a model, to determine an average time spent on hold by the user for the prior communications. The device modifies the position of the communication in the support queue based on the average time and performs one or more actions based on modifying the position of the communication in the support queue.

  • Publication number: 20200195626
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein generally related to a system and method for assessing a fraud risk. In one embodiment, a method for assessing a fraud risk is disclosed herein. A web browser extension executing on the computing device identifies an account associated with the computing device. The web browser extension detects that the computing device navigated to a web page hosted by a third party server. The web browser extension determines that the third party server prompted the computing device to opt into two-factor authentication functionality. The web browser extension determines that the computing device did not opt into the two-factor authentication functionality. The web browser extension prompts, via an application programming interface (API), an organization computing system to update a fraud metric associated with the account.

  • Patent number: 10679451
    Abstract: A device monitors activity associated with a user of a currency bill storage device based on currency bill data received from the currency bill storage device over a period of time. The currency bill storage device includes image sensor(s) configured to capture images of currency bills. The currency bill data is based on the images. The device tracks a balance in the currency bill storage device based on the currency bill data and identifies, based on the activity, an upcoming transaction in which the user is expected to utilize a particular quantity of currency bills in the currency bill storage device. The device determines whether the balance is sufficient relative to the particular quantity of currency bills and performs one or more actions to cause an alert to be provided to the user based on determining whether the balance is sufficient relative to the particular quantity of currency bills.

  • Patent number: 10676296
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure a system for capturing proppant dust particles when positioned at a fracking operation site including a proppant delivery assembly to receive one or more containers having proppant stored therein. The system dispenses the proppant from the one or more containers and delivers the proppant to other fracking operation equipment. Moreover, the system includes a dust collection assembly positioned proximate and associated with the proppant delivery assembly to capture dust particles released by movement and settling of the proppant when being dispensed and delivered by the proppant delivery assembly. The dust collection assembly is positioned to direct an air flow in a flow path overlying the dust particles to capture the dust particles and move the dust particles away from the proppant thereby reducing risk of dust exposure to fracking operation site personnel.

  • Patent number: 10679323
    Abstract: In a video capture system, a virtual lens is simulated when applying a crop or zoom effect to an input video. An input video frame is received from the input video that has a first field of view and an input lens distortion caused by a lens used to capture the input video frame. A selection of a sub-frame representing a portion of the input video frame is obtained that has a second field of view smaller than the first field of view. The sub-frame is processed to remap the input lens distortion to a desired lens distortion in the sub-frame. The processed sub-frame is the outputted.

  • Publication number: 20200175521
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide systems and methods for transacting at a local financial service provider device. The system may include one or more memory devices storing instructions and one or more processors configured to execute the instructions to provide a prompt to a user to input data at the local financial service provider device. Additionally, the instructions may cause the processor to receive, via the prompt, authentication data associated with a customer. The authentication data may include a username and password. The one or more processors may further determine whether the received authentication data matches backend authentication data on record for the customer and in response to the determination whether the received authentication data matches backend authentication data on record for the customer, determine whether a customer profile associated with the backend authentication data includes one or more customer-defined transaction rules.
