  • Publication number: 20210103913
    Abstract: The invention teaches an innovative way for users to transfer funds or crypto currency using proximal peer to peer funds transfer methodology wherein one user with a dynamic IOT smart device enabled with a proximal peer to peer funds transfer software can to transfer funds based on proximity to another user with a dynamic IOT smart device enabled with a proximal peer to peer funds transfer software. These funds transferred from one dynamic IOT smart device enabled with a proximal peer to peer funds transfer software to another may be encrypted and processed through the internet/payment gateway or may be encrypted within the proximal peer to peer funds transfer software to be processed at a later time when an alternate connection to the internet/payment gateway may be established.

  • Patent number: 10831475
    Abstract: Assessing portability of source code based on predictions from a learning model trained with historical outputs from a portability analyzer. A request is received as input to assess portability of source code from a source environment to at least one target environment. The learning model is applied to the source code to predict a level of portability of the source code to the at least one target environment. Results from a portability analyzer that are based on the level of portability predicted by the learning model include a confidence measure associated with one or more portions of the source code indicating the ease of portability of the one or more portions of the source code to each of the at least one target environments.

  • Publication number: 20200286074
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is taught wherein a light smartcard may be utilized to make transactions so that a user only has to carry one card and not be encumbered with the multiple cards that now have to deal with. This is accomplished with a third party API service provider. This could also be thought of your own personal cloud that carries only your cards and only your information including virtual currencies as well. Now you only have to carry one and one card only. You can spend from any of your other accounts through this one card.

  • Patent number: 10627341
    Abstract: An optical interrogator for illuminating an object comprising a laser, a splitter, an optical polarizing element, and an optical recombiner. The laser is configured to generate a laser pulse, which the splitter splits into first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth laser segments such that each of the laser segments are separated by a time delay on the order of nanoseconds between each laser segment. The optical polarizing element is positioned so as to respectively polarize the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth laser segments with a 0° linear polarization, a 45° linear polarization, a 90° linear polarization, a 135° linear polarization, a right-handed, circular polarization (RHCP), and a left-handed, circular polarization (LHCP). The optical recombiner combines the polarized laser segments into a train of co-aligned pulses for illuminating the object.
