  • Publication number: 20210294990
    Abstract: A card for storing both emergency information and payment information is disclosed. The card can be used by an emergency responder to retrieve emergency information for the user. The emergency information can enable the emergency responder to better render aid to the user. The card can have one or more processors, a sensor, and a memory in communication with the one or more processors and storing an application thereon. The application can cause the card to receive a request from a user device (e.g., from an emergency medical technician, or EMT) to access emergency information stored in the memory, transmit a security challenge to the user device, authenticate a received response to the security challenge from the user device, and transmit the emergency information to the user device.

  • Patent number: 11127023
    Abstract: Systems and methods relate to predicting improved operating hours for a merchant. For example, a method may include determining operating hours of a target merchant; identifying one or more merchants other than the target merchant having one or more common characteristics with the target merchant; obtaining transactional data indicating customer transactions at the one or more merchants other than the target merchant; computing an estimate of potential customer transactions at the target merchant during a the period of time not within the operating hours by processing input data including the obtained transactional data using a trained machine learning model to produce the estimate, the estimate being a number or value of consumer transactions missed as a result of the target merchant being closed during the period of time; and transmitting, to the target merchant, information indicating the computed estimate.
