  • Patent number: 11411984
    Abstract: Big data analysis methods and machine learning based models are used to provide offer recommendations to consumers that are probabilistically determined to be relevant to a given consumer. Machine learning based matching of user attributes and offer attributes is first performed to identify potentially relevant offers for a given consumer. A de-duplication process is then used to identify and eliminate any offers represented in the offer data that the consumer has already seen, has historically shown no interest in, has already accepted, that are directed to product or service types the user/consumer already owns, for which the user does not qualify, or that are otherwise deemed to be irrelevant to the consumer.

  • Patent number: 11403373
    Abstract: Embodiments described include systems and methods for adding watermarks using an embedded browser. To provide protection to sensitive information from a network application rendered via an embedded browser of a client application, the client application can generate an overlay with a digital watermark, and apply the overlay over the embedded browser. The client application can selectively generate such overlays, and can customize the format of the digital watermark according to the information rendered on the embedded browser. The watermark can remain with any information that is imaged from the embedded browser, and provides a deterrent against misuse of the information via image capture from a computer screen for instance. By adjusting properties (e.g., contrast) of such an image, the watermark can be made visible and detectable, thus allowing such imaging activities and information to be tracked.

  • Patent number: 11334385
    Abstract: In some implementations, a user interface for an application is displayed using a web browser instance on a client device. An input is received to present data on the user interface in a particular view. In response to the input, a first web worker thread corresponding to the web browser instance obtains data from a server, and executes first library routines to store the data in local storage at the client device. A second web worker thread, which corresponds to the web browser instance and the user interface, accesses the data from the local storage by using one or more second library routines, and processes the data to convert to a presentation format corresponding to the particular view. The second web worker thread stores the processed data in the local storage by using one or more third library routines, and provides the processed data for display on the user interface.

  • Patent number: 11334905
    Abstract: Systems and methods for automatically determining consumer eligibility for a gated offer while reducing data exposure, are herein disclosed. In one example, a method for automatically determining consumer eligibility for a gated offer using a hashed dataset comprises, receiving an eligibility claim from a requester, receiving credentials from a consumer, selecting a verification source based on the eligibility claim and the credentials, determining an eligibility status of the eligibility claim by comparing the credentials against a hashed dataset of the verification source, and transmitting the eligibility status to the requester. In this way, a verification platform may determine consumer eligibility to a gated offer using hashed data, without holding the underlying personal data of the consumer, thereby reducing data exposure of the consumer.

  • Patent number: 11328365
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for automatically identifying fraud, waste or abuse in health insurance claims submitted to insurance companies by healthcare providers. Insurance claim information and at one image associated with the insurance claim may be received, where the image has been submitted by a healthcare provider to an insurance carrier as supporting evidence of a medical service performed by the healthcare provider. The system may generate a digital signature representing the image, then may compare the digital signature generated for the image to previously generated digital signatures of other images that have been submitted in association with other insurance claims. The system may then determine a likelihood that the given insurance claim is associated with fraud, waste or abuse, based in part on whether the digital signature is identical or close to one or more of the previously generated digital signatures.
