  • Publication number: 20190171291
    Abstract: Various systems, methods and computer program products are disclosed which provide tactile feedback from virtual objects. In some particular embodiments, a touch-enabled platform (TEP) is configured to: receive data indicating a user is contacting a touch interface on a device; analyze the data to determine a characteristic of the contact between the user and the touch interface; and provide a waveform to actuate vibration at the touch interface based upon the characteristic of the contact and a display characteristic at the touch interface.

  • Patent number: 8359278
    Abstract: In general, in one aspect, the invention relates to a system for providing identity protection that, in one embodiment, includes a fraud model for specifying patterns of events indicative of identity fraud and a business rules subsystem used to identify fraud that is specified by the fraud models. The system aggregates data from a variety of sources, and has an analytical engine that operates on the aggregated data and determines, using the business rules, whether there are events that are correlative with the fraud models that are indicative of fraud.

  • Publication number: 20100293090
    Abstract: In general, in one embodiment, a computing system that evaluates a fraud probability score for an identity event relevant to a user first queries a data store to identify the identity event. A fraud probability score is then computed for the identity event using a behavioral module that models multiple categories of suspected fraud.

  • Publication number: 20040139176
    Abstract: Methods for deploying improved telecommunication services. The methods comprise the steps of providing one or more existing service packages, each being a set of instruction for deploying a telecommunications service. In a further step the method provides a platform runtime environment that has a work flow engine and a pipeline engine that is capable of interpreting the service package to carry out the instructions therein. In an additional step, the method provides a user interface for configuring the one or more service packages. The user interface is configured to receive user input by offering a plurality of functional elements that may be manipulated by a user to describe one or more operations of the service packages, each functional element having one or more properties that may be controlled by the user. In a further step the method configures one or more features of the service package in response to the user input to alter the telecommunications service.

  • Publication number: 20010047386
    Abstract: Systems and methods for supporting the delivery of communication services to a consumer from a plurality of different vendors. To this end, these systems may include a flexible and scalable middleware server platform that allows for the facile integration of a vendor's communication service and that presents to the consumer a user interface that accepts an enterprise-wide password identification number (PIN) that the server may employ to grant the consumer access to a plurality of different vendors, each offering different products and services. The PIN may be representative of a phone number that the is assigned to and belongs to the consumer. Account information, including balance and subscribed services may be maintained by the server platform for that PIN account.

  • Patent number: 6240442
    Abstract: Systems and processes are disclosed that allow a computer to connect to a server of an Internet site for executing an application program that is stored on a disk linked to that server. Specifically, processes are disclosed that provide a data transport interface for connecting to the server, transport from the server a server address signal representative of a network address of the server, and a path name signal representative of a file system that includes an application program. The process further generates a mount request as a function of the path name signal and transports the mount request to the server to direct the server to provide an array of server file pointers that point to a file descriptor representative of the file system that includes the application program.
