  • Patent number: 11556840
    Abstract: A parser is deployed early in a machine learning pipeline to read raw data and collect useful statistics about the raw data's content to determine which items of raw data exhibit a proxy for feature importance for the machine learning model. The parser operates at high speeds that approach the disk's absolute throughput while utilizing a small memory footprint. Utilization of the parser enables the machine learning pipeline to receive a fraction of the total raw data that would otherwise be available. Several scans through the data are performed, by which proxies for feature importance are indicated and irrelevant features may be discarded and thereby not forwarded to the machine learning pipeline. This reduces the amount of memory and other hardware resources used at the server and also expedites the machine learning process.

    Abstract: A station device in a biometric pre-identification system uses identity to perform one or more actions. Identities are determined (such as via a backend) using biometric information. A biometric pre-identification device obtains biometric information and/or a digital representation thereof from a person approaching the station device. The biometric pre-identification device transmits such to the station device, facilitating the station to begin and/or perform various actions. The station device begins or performs the actions using the identity determined based on the biometric information before the person arrives at the station device.

    Abstract: Automatically communicating information related to a user computing device from a central computing system to a transaction computing system prior to initiation of a transaction between the user computing device and the transaction computing system comprises a digital wallet application and a central computing system. A digital wallet application receives a beacon signal from a transaction computing system indicating the specific identification of the terminal with which the user intends to conduct a transaction. The user computing device communicates the terminal identification to the central computing system. The central computing system communicates customer data, such as loyalty information and offers, to the transaction computing system associated with the terminal. The transaction computing system communicates the customer data to the terminal. When the user taps the user computing device to initiate the transaction, the terminal provides any benefits associated with the customer data.

    Abstract: A system, method and apparatus for routing traffic in ad-hoc networks. A routing blockchain network processes routing node information proposals received from manager nodes of network clusters. Performance metrics, including content integrity metrics, of one or more nodes in the system are validated using distributed ledger techniques and provided to the manager nodes as updates to each manager node's routing information. The manager nodes further determine routing paths for ad-hoc communication requests based on an authentication record that defines conditions necessary to route traffic streams in association with a particular resource or destination, one of the conditions comprising a minimum content integrity metric. Data may be transmitted in data segments, each data segment associated with a particular original fingerprint. The data segments and associated fingerprints are provided to routing nodes and, ultimately, to a destination node.

  • Patent number: 11481751
    Abstract: A retail store automated checkout system uses images, video, or depth data to recognize products being purchased to expedite the checkout process and improve accuracy. All of a store's products, including those not sold in packages, such as fruits and vegetables, are imaged from a series of different angles and in different lighting conditions, to produce a library of images for each product. This library is used in a checkout system that takes images, video, and depth sensor readings as the products pass through the checkout area and remove bottlenecks later in the checkout process. Recognition of product identifiers or attributes such as barcode, QR code or other symbols, as well as OCR of product names, as well as the size and material of the product, can be additional or supplemental devices for identifying products being purchased. In another embodiment, an existing checkout or self-checkout scanner is enhanced with image recognition of products to achieve the same effect.

  • Patent number: 11417196
    Abstract: Alarm system arrangements (e.g., methods, apparatus, etc.) including receiving data originating from an entity located outside of a monitored premise, the data providing information detailing an impending request for temporary access of the monitored premise; and using the data to determine a predefined access plan to allow the temporary access to a predefined sub-area of the premises without triggering an alarm event, and to implement the predefined access plan at a time of receipt of an actual request for the temporary access. One example involves using the data to determine a predefined access plan which includes temporarily disabling of the alarm system's ability to recognize an alarm event with respect to activities occurring with respect to a predefined sub-area of the premises during the temporary access, and to implement the predefined access plan at a time relative to receipt of an actual request for the temporary access.

  • Patent number: 11416846
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for processing gift transactions, related to retaining a social and gratitude-based experience surrounding giving and receiving gifts, monitoring gift recipients on-premises at merchants and providing gift-related notifications, and managing funds in a gift that the recipient does not redeem. A system configured to practice a first method receives an object associated with a gift, receives a tag associated with the object, and transmits the object to the giver. A system configured to practice a second example method uses face identification at the merchant to identify a recipient of a gift. The system can transmit a reminder to the recipient regarding the gift. In a third example method, the system creates a gift and notifies the recipient of the gift. If the recipient never redeems the gift, then the giver is not charged for the gift and no transaction occurs.
