  • Patent number: 11989739
    Abstract: Representative embodiments set forth techniques for verifying an identity of a primary user of a primary account on a client device. A method may include receiving, for the primary account, a request for identity verification responsive to an action of a secondary account associated with the primary account and identifying a payment registration characteristic of a payment registration associated with the primary account. The method also includes retrieving identity information associated with the primary account based on the payment registration characteristic and, in response to a determination that the identity information corresponds to a verification indicator, verifying an identity of a user of the primary account. The method also includes, in response to verifying the identity of the user of the primary account, generating a payment verification token and associating the payment verification token with an authorization indication for the action of the secondary account.

  • Patent number: 11991217
    Abstract: A wireless communication network provides a text-messaging service and a voice-calling service to wireless communication devices. The wireless communication network monitors performance of text-messaging functions and voice-calling functions. The wireless communication network prioritizes the text-messaging functions and the voice-calling functions based on their performance. The wireless communication network transfers function lists that prioritize the text-messaging functions and the voice-calling functions by their performance. The wireless communication network wirelessly exchanges text-messaging signaling and voice-calling signaling between the wireless communication devices and the text-messaging functions and the voice-calling functions. Individual ones of the wireless communication devices exchange the text-messaging signaling with selected ones of the text-messaging functions based on the function list that prioritizes the text-messaging functions by their performance.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for aggregating and analyzing digital manufacturing data are disclosed. An aggregator can collect output data generated by a number of digital manufacturing machines. The output data can be filtered and transmitted to a server for storage in a database. One or more clients can access the data in the database via an API. This can extract 3D printer data, transform it into a canonical form, and upload it to a network-based database. These services can interact using a client-centric messaging system like Kafka or, more generally, a message manager. When a client's producer sends a message, the messaging system responds that the message request either can or cannot be processed. If the message can be processed, then the aggregator sends the message; otherwise the producer can retry at a future time.

    Abstract: Techniques for providing topic-based data routing in a publish-subscribe messaging environment are disclosed. In one example, a system supported by hardware in a publish-subscribe messaging environment may include a message broker to receive topic metadata at a first instance according to a first interval into a predefined fixed topic. Further, the system may include a topic list subscriber that subscribes to the predefined fixed topic and obtains a list of topics from the message broker. Furthermore, the system may include a subscription manager to assign topics in the list of topics to a set of subscribers according to a criteria. In one example, the message broker may route data corresponding to the topics to the set of subscribers in accordance with the topics assigned to the set of subscribers.

  • Patent number: 11886341
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for read operations for regions of a memory device are described. In some examples, a memory device may include a first cache for storing mappings between logical addresses and physical addresses of the memory device, and a second cache for storing indices associated with entries removed from the first cache. The memory device may include a controller configured to load mappings to the first cache upon receiving read commands. When the first cache is full, and when the memory device receives a read command, the controller may remove an entry from the first cache and may store an index associated with the removed entry to the second cache. The controller may then transmit a mapping associated with the index to a host device for use in a HPB operation.

  • Patent number: 11860859
    Abstract: A distribution server restructures content and information published to a topic tree for more efficient and meaningful presentation to a subscribing client. To do so, the distribution server receives a request to create a topic view from a client and creates the topic view in response. The topic view includes a set of selected topics and a topic view mapping. The topic view mapping maps the topic paths for the set of selected topics to a set of reference topics at a set of reference paths. In other words, the topic view restructures the content and information by creating new branches in the topic tree. Whenever a selected topic receives an update from a publisher, the distribution server publishes the update as restructured content and information to the reference topics at the reference paths. A client subscribed to the reference path receives the update in a restructured manner.
