  • Patent number: 11935063
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a fraud alert management system with real-time remediation and integration with the originating system. The system obtains an electronic file that includes an exception information data structure comprising exception information representing one or more events and automatically parses the exception information into events for the customers associated with the events. For each customer, the system sends an event notification message with a link to an authentication interface of the payor financial institution. After the customer is authenticated, the system provides a user interface that displays information for each event and a display element for reporting fraud. Responsive to the customer selecting the display element for reporting fraud, the system sends a fraud reporting messages to the payor financial institution and the payee financial institution.

  • Patent number: 11934825
    Abstract: A simulation system that includes a simulation accelerator that uses parallel processing to accelerate the simulation of register transfer level codes (RTLs) while minimizing memory access latency is disclosed. The accelerator has an array of parallel computing resources. The simulation accelerator receives compiled RTLs in which the components of the design are mapped to instructions. The instructions are divided into groups, in which instructions belonging to a same group are logically independent of each other. The simulation accelerator fetches instructions and data for processing by the parallel computing resources for one group of instructions at a time.

  • Publication number: 20240013227
    Abstract: Embodiments provide an alert management and real-time remediation system. The system receives an electronic file that includes an overdraft allowance information data structure comprising overdraft allowance information and automatically parses the overdraft allowance information into overdraft allowance events for the associated customers. The system sends overdraft allowance notification messages to the associated customers. The message includes a link to an authentication interface of an institution associated with the customer. After the customer is authenticated, the system provides a user interface that displays overdraft allowance information for each overdraft allowance event associated with the customer and a display element for a payment option. Responsive to the customer selecting the payment option, the system sends a payment message that causes a transfer of a payment to the institution.

  • Publication number: 20230183343
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides binding proteins, such as antibodies and antigen-binding fragments, which specifically bind to human CD96 receptor protein (hu-CD96) and are capable of decreasing, inhibiting, and/or fully-blocking immune regulatory effects mediated by hu-CD96. The present disclosure also provides methods of using the antibodies (and compositions thereof) to treat diseases and conditions responsive to decreasing, inhibiting and/or blocking immune regulatory function or activity mediated by CD96 binding to CD155, including effects arising from CD96 interactions with CD226 and/or TIGIT.
