  • Patent number: 11363407
    Abstract: Disclosed is a secure in-person dating and socializing platform. The platform may perform a check-in of a first user at a particular event based on messaging from a first device of the first user. The first device may receive messages from other devices of other users at the particular event that have previously checked-in to the particular event. Each message may provide a status for a different one of the other users. The first device may determine a location of each of the other devices based on signaling characteristics associated with receiving each message, may determine an area falling within a field-of-view of the first device camera, and may provide an augmented reality presentation of the camera feed with a visual indicator for the status of a second user at a particular location in the field-of-view that maps to the location of a second device of the second user.

  • Patent number: 11316850
    Abstract: A distributed ledger, e.g., blockchain, enabled operating environment includes a user device that accesses services of a service device by leveraging the decentralized blockchain. For example, a user device can lock/unlock a door (e.g., service device) by interfacing with a smart contract stored on the decentralized blockchain. The user device provides parameters, such as payment, that satisfies the variables of the smart contract such that the user device can access the service device. The service device regularly retrieves information stored in the smart contract on the decentralized blockchain. For example, the retrieved information can specify that the user device is authorized to access the service device or that the service device is to provide a service. Therefore, given the retrieved information, the service device provides the service to the user device.

  • Patent number: 11113716
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein for attributing credit to online consumer touchpoints for a consumer performing an action. The systems and methods involve determining whether a consumer is in a particular environment for an online consumer touchpoint by detecting an external viewing condition for the consumer for the online consumer touchpoint. The systems and methods determine that the consumer performed an action, such as a conversion, following the online consumer touchpoint and additional online consumer touchpoints. An effectiveness of the online consumer touchpoint in the particular environment is determined and used to attribute relative credit to the online consumer touchpoint and the additional online consumer touchpoints for the consumer performing the action.
