  • Patent number: 10979306
    Abstract: The invention comprises a user friendly investment strategy platform. This invention allows for a drag-and-drop platform for various sectors, strategies, vehicles, and timing in the form of blocks. This allows a user to generate any desired resource management strategy and the system may deploy the strategy as a simulated resource management action. Furthermore, the system allows for deployment of the resource action live on a resource exchange upon user authorization. The blocks include object codes that are programmed to build out any possible resource management strategy. The invention may also suggest or recommend thresholds, and other templates that allow for customization.

  • Publication number: 20200355080
    Abstract: An airfoil for a gas turbine engine according to an example of the present disclosure includes, among other things, an airfoil body extending between leading and trailing edges in a chordwise direction and extending from a root section in a spanwise direction, and the airfoil body defining pressure and suction sides separated in a thickness direction. The airfoil body defines a recessed region extending inwardly from at least one of the pressure and suction sides, and the airfoil body includes one or more ribs that define a plurality of pockets within a perimeter of the recessed region. A plurality of cover skins is welded to the airfoil body along the one or more ribs to enclose respective ones of the plurality of pockets. The plurality of cover skins formed from a common cover having a perimeter that is dimensioned to mate with the perimeter of the recess. A method of forming a gas turbine engine component is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200349552
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a system for secure contactless distribution of dynamic resources. Resource information may be written onto a near field communication (“NFC”) chip associated with a user, and a dynamic resource value element can be associated with this NFC chip. When an NFC interaction between the NFC chip associated with the user and a computing device of the user is detected, the computing device of the user extracts the resource information from the NFC chip, along with a dynamic resource value. The dynamic resource value is compared to an expected dynamic resource value and, if the values match, the extracted resource information is populated into memory fields of the computing device of the user.

  • Publication number: 20200351262
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a system for secondary authentication via contactless distribution of dynamic resources. When an event request associated with a user is received, a prompt for event information is transmitted to a computing device. Based on the event information that is received, a determination is made that the event request requires a secondary authentication in the form of a near field communication (“NFC”) interaction between an NFC chip associated with the user and a secondary authentication device. The NFC chip associated with the user may additionally be associated with a dynamic resource value element. Once the NFC interaction is detected, a dynamic resource value is extracted and compared to an expected dynamic resource value. If the values match, then the user is authenticated for the requested event at the secondary authentication level.

  • Publication number: 20200351852
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide systems, apparatus, methods and/or the like for generating a resource distribution hub using for fully electronic resource distribution by using mobile device application designed to interface with an embedded Near-Field Communication (NFC) tag in a resource distribution instrument that stores instructions for processing the resource distribution authorization information. The holder (i.e., resource provider) of the resource distribution instrument can use the resource distribution instrument to communicate to a mobile communication device having an NFC reader to read the instructions and process a resource distribution according to the parameters of the mobile device application. As such, the holder (i.e., resource provider) of the resource distribution request can process the resource distribution without having to issue a credentials, aliases, pin codes, and the like conventionally used to authorizes the distribution of resources to the resource requester.

  • Publication number: 20200350955
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed facilitating an electronic resource distribution by embedding a short-range wireless tag in a resource distribution request that stores instructions for processing the resource distribution in a fully electronic processing flow. As such, the resource distribution request holder is capable of processing the request without issuing a resource distribution document to the resource requester. In additional embodiments of the invention, the short-range wireless tag further stores instructions for arranging subsequent resource distributions to the resource requester to occur without the need for the resource requester to present a resource request document.
