  • Patent number: 10304048
    Abstract: There are provided systems and methods for authentication depending on device capabilities and user requests based on situational information collected in advance of a device becoming non-operational. A user may wish to utilize some device process, such as access and use of a device application or other module. For example, a user may wish to utilize a payment application of the communication device, or authenticate the user using a service provider accessible through the communication device. If the communication device becomes non-operational (e.g., lack of power or signal strength), the user may be prevented from authenticating through the communication device. Thus, the user may establish a limited use authentication credential from situational data to the user and device (e.g., location or current image) that allows the user to authenticate with the service provider. The authentication credential may be limited to a location, amount, and/or type of authentication.

  • Publication number: 20180365354
    Abstract: Techniques for employing natural language processing (NLP) to facilitate geospatial analysis are provided. In one example, a computer-implemented method comprises receiving, by a device operatively coupled to a processor, input information in a natural language format indicating a change to a state of a system comprising different nodes through which physical elements flow, wherein the system is associated with a state model that characterizes movement of the physical elements through the different nodes based on one or more flow parameters. The computer-implemented method further comprises, determining, by the device based on the input information, a subset of the one or more flow parameters associated with the change, determining, by the device based on the input information, one or more constraints to the subset that account for the change, and modifying, by the device, the state model based on the one or more constraints, resulting in a modified state model.

  • Publication number: 20180329466
    Abstract: Consumption of power by device components is profiled on a per-session basis of user interaction. A session engine determines start of a user interaction session with the device (e.g., by detecting screen turn on). The engine generates a session identifier (SID) and broadcasts same to device component(s). In response to the SID, the component(s) record power consumption data. Upon receiving a signal indicating end of the user interaction session (e.g., screen turn off), the session engine broadcasts a notice allowing component(s) to stop recording power consumption data. The components communicate aggregated data to the session engine for storage in a centralized location (e.g., trace buffer). In response to a query posed within a command line prompt, stored data may be parsed on a per-session basis for inclusion in a detailed report of power consumption. Power consumption inefficiencies endemic to components and/or user behaviors may be thus be identified and remediated.

  • Publication number: 20180322754
    Abstract: Embodiments relate generally to methods and systems for monitoring personal protection equipment (PPE) compliance. A method may comprise receiving, by a user identification (ID) module, information from sensor modules attached to PPE devices worn by the user, determining if the sensor modules indicate that the PPE devices are active or inactive, communicating the information from the user ID to a supervisor console, and displaying this information by a supervisor console. The user ID may be associated with a specific user, and the sensor modules may be associated with specific PPE devices. When it is determined that a required PPE device is inactive, corrective action may be taken by the supervisor.
