  • Publication number: 20230334247
    Abstract: A system is provided for machine-learning based identification and filtering of electronic network communication. In particular, the system may continuously monitor and pull electronic communications data from one or more networked computing systems in an enterprise environment. Based on the electronic communications data, the system may use machine learning algorithms to generate a database of associations between one or more users and one or more topics of interest. The system may then output one or more recommendations to one or more users for transmitting communications associated with the one or more topics of interest. In this way, the system may improve the efficiency of communications received and transmitted within a network.

  • Patent number: 11710110
    Abstract: A system for performing authorization of a user in an augmented reality environment comprises an augmented reality user device, an automatic teller machine, and an authentication server. The automatic teller machine has a keypad with unmarked buttons. The augmented reality user device includes a display configured to overlay virtual objects onto a field of view of a user. The augmented reality user device receives a virtual keypad overlay, which assigns values to the unmarked buttons of the keypad. Using the overlay, the augmented reality user device displays the assigned values on the buttons of the keypad. The automatic teller machine detects an input sequence entered on the keypad and sends the input sequence to the authentication server. The authentication server determines an authentication code by combining the input sequence with the virtual keypad overlay, and compares the determined authentication code with an authentication code stored in a database.

  • Patent number: 11706311
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to cognitive automation-based engine processing to propagate data across multiple systems via a private network to overcome technical system, resource consumption, and architecture limitations. Data to be propagated can be manually input or extracted from a digital file. The data can be parsed by analyzing for correct syntax, normalized into first through sixth normal forms, segmented into packets for efficient data transmission, validated to ensure that the data satisfies defined formats and input criteria, and distributed into a plurality of data stores coupled to the private network, thereby propagating data without repetitive manual entry. The data may also be enriched by, for example, correcting for any errors or linking with other potentially related data. Based on data enrichment, recommendations of additional target(s) for propagation of data can be identified. Reports may also be generated. The cognitive automation may be performed in real-time to expedite processing.

  • Patent number: 11556873
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to a cognitive automation based compliance management system. A computing platform may receive, via a network, an alert notification indicative of a change to a legal framework applicable to an enterprise organization. Subsequently, the computing platform may, in response to the alert notification, detect a task that may be impacted by the change. Then, the computing platform may, upon detecting the task, identify at least one task parameter associated with the task. Then, the computing platform may compare the at least one task parameter with the change to determine whether the task is impacted by the change. Subsequently, the computing platform may, upon a determination that the task is impacted by the change, recommend, via the network, one or more actions associated with the task.

  • Patent number: 11425100
    Abstract: Typically, a business desires to track and monitor all applications run on its servers. Nonetheless, one or more unauthorized applications may be running on the business's servers, exposing the business to potential regulatory liability and security breaches. Apparatus and methods are provided for isolating and disabling one or more unauthorized applications running on a server. The apparatus may comprise a system including a content-filtering web proxy server configured to filter outgoing requests and data associated with the requests. The system may also include a remediation framework configured to monitor request data in a proxy log stored by the proxy server. The remediation framework may be triggered to perform remedial action when the remediation framework determines that a request and associated data, as stored in the proxy log, meets predetermined conditions. The remediation framework, when triggered, may execute steps to truncate functionality of the unauthorized applications.

  • Patent number: 11410506
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to processing systems that implement an enhanced reality device to facilitate transactions at a screen-less automated teller machine (ATM). A computing platform may receive a request to initiate a transaction with a screen-less automated ATM. Based on the request to initiate the transaction, the computing platform may send pre-transaction interface information and commands directing the enhanced reality device to generate a pre-transaction interface. The computing platform may receive an authentication request from the screen-less ATM indicating its availability and requesting authentication information. In response to validating the authentication information, the computing platform may generate transaction interface information. The computing platform may send the transaction interface information to the enhanced reality device. The computing platform may receive a transaction completion indication from the screen-less ATM.

  • Patent number: 11381972
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to optimizing authentication and management of wireless devices in zero trust computing environments. In some embodiments, a computing platform may receive, from a user computing device, a connection request. Subsequently, the computing platform may generate, using an artificial-intelligence engine, a profile for the connection request. Based on the profile for the connection request generated using the artificial-intelligence engine, the computing platform may determine that the connection request is valid. In response to determining that the connection request is valid, the computing platform may establish a connection with the user computing device. Based on establishing the connection with the user computing device, the computing platform may assign an identity to the user computing device.

  • Publication number: 20220164358
    Abstract: Email metadata, and in some embodiments other secondary data, is analyzed to identify users of interest defined as having knowledge or expertise in a subject matter. Specifically, a corpus of email metadata is analyzed to determine, at least, which subject matters are associated with users, which users received or transmitted subject matter-specific emails, the distribution groups to which users, and any other relevant email metadata. In additional embodiments, secondary data other than email metadata is also analyzed and used to identify the users of interest. The analyzed email metadate, and in some embodiments the secondary data, is used to render reputation indicator(s) for each user that indicate a level of knowledge/expertise that the user possesses on subject matter(s). A requester provides input criteria including the subject matter, and, in response, is presented a ranked user listing that is ranked based on the level of reputation indictor.

  • Patent number: 11334626
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to searching a dual database graph. The dual database graph is resident on a dual database graph platform. The platform includes two or more nodes interconnected by one or more edges. The graph database stores graph data corresponding to the graph(s) and a relational database for storing metadata corresponding to the graph(s). The method includes receiving as input a search criterion. The search criterion may include a plurality of data points corresponding to a relational database node profile or a relational database subgraph profile. The platform may search the relational database for a subset of graphs that each includes a relational database node or a relational database subgraph that matches the node profile or subgraph profile of the search criterion. The platform may then retrieve a relational database node or a relational database subgraph that matches the node profile or subgraph profile.
