  • Patent number: 11328357
    Abstract: A distributed system for processing messages includes one or more gateways, sequencers, and compute nodes. The gateway sends a message to the sequencer and the compute node for processing. The sequencer associates the message with an identifier indicating a relative sequence of the message among a plurality of messages. The compute node processes the message to generate a preliminary result, and determines, based on the identifier, whether the compute node processed the message in sequence or out of sequence relative to another message of a plurality of messages. If the compute node determines that the message was received out of sequence, the compute node may process a sequence of messages including the message and at least one preceding message in an appropriate sequence.

  • Patent number: 11303389
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein that provide low latency data communication with improved physical link layer reliability through repeated physical layer retransmission of data over a data connection whenever the connection is idle (i.e., no new data to send). In some embodiments, the transmission of administrative control symbols (e.g., “idles,” “commas”, etc.) can be suppressed or otherwise reduced to allow some of the available connection bandwidth to be used for data redundancy and fault tolerance through the repeated retransmission of data as described in more detail below. Accordingly, instead of executing time-consuming, error correcting routines, a receive node can discard the erroneous data frame and process at least one repeat frame that carries the same data payload. Sequence numbers and/or other repeat indicators can be used to distinguish original frames from repeat frames and/or for identifying which frames carry the same data payload.

  • Patent number: 11295382
    Abstract: A system and method for mitigating the effects of transit time latency in the execution of global trade orders at remote exchange servers utilizes a generated complex order. End users with certain trading protocols directed to their asset classes provide the co-located server with their trading parameters, and further personalize their trade orders by establishing rules for executing the orders at each co-located server. This is known as their complex order. A deployed strategy engine generates a virtual machine at each co-located server, which thus allows the co-located server to execute complex orders received from the end user. The end user may modify or delete the complex order at each co-located server at any time. Transit time latency issues are drastically reduced under this system and method.

  • Patent number: 11281978
    Abstract: In many environments, rules are trained on historical data to predict an outcome likely to be associated with new data. Described is a ruleset which predicts the probability of a particular outcome. Roughly described, an individual identifies a ruleset, where each of the rules has a plurality of conditions and also indicates a rule-level probability of a predetermined classification. The conditions indicate a relationship (e.g., ‘<’ or ‘!<’) between an input feature and a corresponding value. The rules are evaluated against input data to derive a certainty for each condition, and aggregated to a rule-level certainty. The rule probabilities are combined using the rule-level certainty values to derive a probability output for the ruleset, which can be used to provide a basis for decisions. In an embodiment, the per-condition certainty values are fuzzy values aggregated by fuzzy logic. A novel genetic algorithm can be used to derive the ruleset.

  • Patent number: 11282130
    Abstract: A method for facilitating foreign transactions through inter-currency exchanges and geographical matching includes providing a platform to consumers located in different countries, where a consumer in a first country that desires a product from a second country is matched to a consumer in the second country that desires a product in the first country; the consumers are matched and transactions initiated by the platform to provide transfer of any necessary payment to ensure that each consumer can make the purchase on behalf of the other consumer in their own country, for shipping to the consumer in the other country, negating the need for the consumers to make any international purchases directly while still availing themselves of foreign products without involving merchants and minimizing the effect and amount of cross-border transactions.

  • Patent number: 11276117
    Abstract: Operations include generating proposals for accounts payable and accounts receivable netting across multiple trading partners. A netting proposal system uses a machine learning model to generate netting proposals that are likely to be approved by the respective trading partners. The netting proposal system identifies characteristics of attributes of previously accepted netting proposals. Candidate attributes, with the same characteristics of attributes of previously accepted netting proposals, are selected for a new netting proposal. The netting proposal system further identifies characteristics of attributes of previously rejected netting proposals. Candidate attributes, without the same characteristics of attributes of previously rejected netting proposals, are selected for the new netting proposal. Furthermore, candidate attributes, with the same characteristics of attributes of previously rejected netting proposals, are not selected for the new netting proposal.
