  • Publication number: 20230271026
    Abstract: A soliton beam useful in influencing material in a target structure is described. Such a soliton beam can be generated suing a plasma antenna to generate an electromagnetic carrier wave, ?. The confined plasma antenna also pulses the carrier wave at a sonic frequency, f, to create a sonic wave. Pulsing the carrier wave results in a soliton beam having a sequential plurality of solitons which are separated from each other by a periodicity p, wherein ?<<p.

  • Patent number: 11652621
    Abstract: A method for securely encrypting and decrypting data in a blockchain, wherein a node member of a network involved in executing a state transition function for the blockchain, uses a key derived from a sequence of digits in an irrational number. The irrational number can derive from a ratio and/or a root, and preferably a square root of a non-perfect square. A key might or might not utilize the entirety of the sequence of digits. For example, the key might utilize every other or every third digit in the sequence. A key might alternatively include some or all of the sequence, with one or more additional characters or digits added to the beginning or end of the sequence, or included elsewhere within the sequence. A key might even utilize non-consecutive members of the sequence of digits, or perhaps a reverse or partially reversed sequence.

  • Publication number: 20230115216
    Abstract: A numeric string of information is encoded into a graphic using first and second lines or other designations of length. The information can be decoded by measuring the first and second lengths, and then recreating the numeric string by applying a mathematical formula to the measured lengths. Lines can be touching or not touching, can have any angular relationship between them, and can be curved. Alphabetic and other non-numeric information can be translated into numbers, and then included in the numeric string being encoded. Numeric strings can be extremely long, and for example can be used as multi-million digit passcodes. A given graphic can contain more than two lines or other designations of lengths, which can be separately decoded, or can be used to assist in decoding of each other. All suitable mathematical formulae can be used, including for example, simple multiplication and division, addition, subtraction, roots, exponents, and logarithms.

  • Patent number: 11621837
    Abstract: Systems and methods for securing encrypted data wherein a sending computer encrypts data to be transmitted with an encryption key. The encryption key itself is not sent, but can be derived from a second key and third key. The second key is modified such that an incomplete portion of the second key is sent along with the message to a recipient computer. The third key is sent separately to the recipient computer. The recipient computer obtains the remainder of the second key, reconstructs the complete second key and then uses it with the third key to derive a decryption key to decrypt the message.

  • Publication number: 20230088104
    Abstract: A system that generates a blockchain for a user wherein each block in the chain contains encrypted information associated with the user. The information in each block is encrypted and decrypted by a key that is generated based on a function, a starting point and a length that is shared with participants that have access to the data in each block. The access can be controlled with granularity by the owner of the information without having cumbersome passkey management.

  • Patent number: 11552780
    Abstract: A system for securing a data set include a computing device that provides access to portions of a data set to different users, and can encrypt the portions by generating encryption keys for each portion using a single mathematical function. The keys are generated by applying a starting point and length to a solution of the mathematical function. The process to generate the decryption keys are provided to the authorized users so that they can view and manipulate only the data set portions they are authorized to access.

  • Patent number: 11528136
    Abstract: A method for decrypting encrypted data/message whereby a computing device derives the prime numbers that are used to make up a public key by searching the decimals of the inverse of the quasi-prime number that is the public key. The computing devices designates a search range around a jump point of the decimals of the inverse of the public key and searches within the search range for prime numbers by testing them against the quasi-prime. When the prime numbers are found, the computing device then uses them to derive the private key and decrypt the data.

  • Patent number: 11514616
    Abstract: In a system for providing augmented reality to a person disposed in a real-world, physical environment, a camera is configured to capture multiple real-world images of a physical environment. The system includes a processor configured to use the real-world images to generate multiple images of a virtual object that correspond to the multiple real-world images. The system further includes a display configured to display to the person in real time, a succession of the generated images that correspond to then-current multiple real-world images, such that the person perceives the virtual object to be positioned within the physical environment.

  • Patent number: 11516392
    Abstract: An implantable system includes an implanted camera that captures images. An analytics engine analyzes the images to determine whether any objects or aspects of the captured image is considered an unviewable element. Upon determining that an unviewable element is present, the analytics engine causes an occlusion device to occlude the unviewable element from the user's view. The occlusion can also affect the ability of the camera to continue to see the unviewable element.
