  • Patent number: 10657362
    Abstract: Various embodiments of a facial recognition system are provided. In one embodiment, a processor determines a value for a lighting parameter associated with a captured facial image, determines whether any previously obtained images in a biometric database includes a similar value for the lighting parameter and, if not, stores the newly captured image in the database along with the lighting parameter value. In another embodiment, the processor calculates a score indicative of the likelihood that the face in the captured facial image is identical to the face of a previously obtained image in the database, determines whether the score exceeds a threshold value and, if so, generates a signal indicating a match. The processor adjusts the threshold based on one or more parameter values.

  • Patent number: 10650353
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a system, computer product, and method for identifying a potential travel companion. A travel companion application is provided for installation on a remote subscriber computer. Upon entering travel data for a specified trip, a remote server accesses a memory databank of travel companion recommendations and compares the recommendations with the travel data in order to determine whether there exists matching travel data with a potential travel companion. In response to the matching identification, a formatted travel alert is communicated over a wireless communication channel to a destination address. The alert activates an application that both causes display of the alert on a remote device, and provides a URL with connection to the associated data source.

  • Patent number: 10614331
    Abstract: A system provides intelligent gallery management for biometrics. A first gallery is obtained that includes biometric and/or other information on a population of people. An application is identified. A subset of the population of people is identified based on the application. A second gallery is derived from the first gallery by pulling the information for the subset of the population of people without pulling the information for the population of people not in the subset. Biometric identification (such as facial recognition) for the application may then be performed using the second gallery rather than the first gallery. In this way, the system is improved as less time is required for biometric identification, fewer device resources are used, and so on.

  • Patent number: 10534783
    Abstract: A system and method for performing a universal search for resources across platforms in an enterprise system are described. A search server may receive one or more characters of a search query input at a user device of a user that is a member of an organization and identify one or more resources having metadata or content that includes the one or more characters. For each identified resource, the server may determine a category to which the identified resource belongs, receive source access data indicating resource access patterns of users in the organization, and rank the one or more resources based on the resource access data. The server may provide, to the user device, search result data for display that indicates the ranked one or more resources.

  • Patent number: 10527436
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for estimating an arrival time associated with a trip. The exemplary method receives trip information including an origin and a destination of the trip, and determines a route connecting the origin and the destination. The route includes a plurality of road segments. The method then receives transportation information associated with the road segments of the route and extracts global features and local features from the transportation information. Each global feature is indicative of characteristics involving at least two of the road segments, and each local feature is indicative of characteristics related to an individual one of the road segments. The method applies a machine learning model to estimate the arrival time, which includes a first neural network dedicated to process the global features and a second neural network dedicated to process the local features. The first neural network is distinct from the second neural network.

  • Patent number: 10510092
    Abstract: Provided in various aspects, are systems and methods for organizing and delivering commodity information to a consumer in an easily understood user interface. In some embodiments, the user interface is specially configured to present a matrix of information to the consumer, blending “branded” and non-branded opportunities. Branded opportunities can be configured to present commodity information in association with a specific provider or the provider's brand. Combining branded opportunities with unbranded opportunities enables commodity providers to target brand loyal customers while at the same time providing discounted opportunities without diluting brand associations. The matrix based organization can be implemented in conjunction with commodity data feed providers, including for example, rental car information suppliers to deliver commodity information in an easily understood user interface.
