  • Patent number: 10938817
    Abstract: A system for providing data security and protection using distributed ledgers to store validated data in a global knowledge graph for fraud detection is disclosed. The system may comprise a data access interface, a processor, and an output interface. The data access interface may receive data associated with an individual from a data source. The processor may convert the data into knowledge graph data by: extracting entities and relations from the data; and translating the data into knowledge graph triples to generate the knowledge graph data. The processor may validate the knowledge graph data using a cryptographic validation, to provide secured contents to update a global knowledge graph to determine a fraudulent activity level associated with the individual based on the updated global knowledge graph. The output interface may transmit a report associated with the fraudulent activity level to a report requestor at a computing device.

  • Publication number: 20200277422
    Abstract: The present invention relates to multi-arm star macromolecules which are used as thickening agents or rheology modifiers, including use in hydraulic fracturing fluid compositions. In one aspect of the invention, a star macromolecule is capable of thickening via a dual mechanism comprising (1) self-assembly of the hydrophobic polymerized segments of the star macromolecules via hydrophobic interactions or associations, and (2) association, reaction, or combination of the hydroxyl-containing polymerized segments of one or more of the star macromolecules.

  • Patent number: 10559929
    Abstract: A printed circuit board (PCB) includes a substrate and a PCB connector footprint defined along a longitudinal axis and a lateral axis being subdivided into PCB column grouping footprints in columns parallel to the longitudinal axis. The PCB includes signal vias arranged in pairs along a signal pair axis. The pairs of signal vias are aligned in the columns parallel to the longitudinal axis and in rows parallel to the lateral axis. The signal pair axis is non-parallel to the lateral and longitudinal axes. The PCB includes ground vias with at least one ground via arranged between adjacent pairs of signal vias within the PCB column grouping footprints and at least one ground via is arranged between adjacent pairs of signal vias in adjacent PCB column grouping footprints. This orientation is to allow more spacing between the signal vias and some ground vias to enhance signal integrity.
