Counsel:  Firm: Fenwick West LLP
1st Invent:  Sarthak Pattanaik (Bernardsville, NJ)
Inventors:  Genders: F=0, M=2
Abstract:
2000 char max
A central service provider manages a blockchain network that writes the cryptographic hash of each executed transaction in a block to the blockchain network. For each executed transaction, the central service provider generates and transmits a transaction receipt such that a party can verify that the transaction was appropriately executed. Additionally, a party can check that the party''s records are correct by providing transaction data describing details of transactions recorded in the party''s records to the central service provider. The central service provider verifies the party''s records by comparing the transaction data in the party''s records to the blocks of transaction records in the blockchain network. In some scenarios, the central service provider may identify or receive an identification of a discrepancy arising from one or more transactions. The central service provider can reconcile the identified discrepancy.

Some examples of the present disclosure relate to generating artificially intelligent entities represented on a blockchain using a non-fungible token (NFT). In one such example, a system can generate an NFT on a blockchain. The NFT can represent an artificially intelligent entity. The system can also generate a personality dataset on the blockchain, the personality dataset describing personality characteristics of the artificially intelligent entity. The system can then correlate the NFT to the personality dataset, thereby assigning the personality characteristics to the artificially intelligent entity. Once generated, the artificially intelligent entity may reside in a virtual ecosystem in which it can perform tasks and learn over time.

Abstract:
2000 char max
The invention provides a computer-implemented method and corresponding system which is implemented using an electronic ledger such as a blockchain. This may or may not be the Bitcoin blockchain. The invention can be used to implement, execute and/or control the performance of a task or process. A method according to the invention comprises the steps of generating a blockchain Transaction which comprises: at least one signed input which comprises a value; and at least one modifiable output. It further comprises the step of extracting the value from the signed input and providing it to a portion of logic to obtain a result; and using the result to modify the output of the Transaction. The transaction provides a record and/or representation of the execution of the portion of logic and/or the result. The signed input is provided to the Transaction using an unlocking script. The at least one input is signed using a signature hash type which renders the input as non-modifiable. This may be the signature hash type SIGHASH_NONE. The Transaction may further comprise at least one unsigned input. The unsigned input may be signed after the output has been modified. The unsigned input can be signed using a signature hash type which prevents modification of the whole Transaction, and may be the signature hash type is SIGHASH_ALL. Further the value can be embedded in a public key associated with the signed input; and extracted from the public key so as to provide it to the portion of logic. The portion of logic can be arranged to implement the functionality of a logic gate or combination of gates, such as an AND, NOT, OR, NOR, XOR, IMPLY, NAND, NONIMPLY or XNOR gate. Thus, the invention provides a highly versatile and useful technical approach for implementing tasks using a blockchain.

1st Invent:  Elena Yurievna Medvedeva (Tver, )
Inventors:  Genders: F=1, M=4
Abstract:
2000 char max
A system and method includes a blockchain operation stack which may control access to reading and writing operations for a blockchain. The blockchain operation stack may include a credential authority layer that may control permissions for profiles maintained by the credential authority layer. When the permissions are granted by the credential authority layer, a presentation layer may generate a display that may include information on the blockchain structure. Integrity outputs stored in a successor block may verify that a predecessor block has been rewritten and is valid. The presentation layer may provide tools to facilitate write layer operations to rewrite and append to the blockchain.

Counsel:  Firm: Marshall, Gerstein Borun LLP
1st Invent:  Ryan Maurer (Phoenix, AZ)
Inventors:  Genders: F=2, M=8
Abstract:
2000 char max
Aspects of distributed ledger technology are leveraged to verify subrogation settlements. In particular, two parties to a subrogation claim provide cryptographic hashes to a subrogation demand smart contract stored at an address on a blockchain. The subrogation demand smart contract determines that the parties have reached an agreement by determining that the cryptographic hashes match. A settlement amount from the subrogation claim may be appended to a set of settlement amounts to determine a net settlement amount to facilitate a single payment between the parties on a periodic basis, such as daily, to alleviate the need for the parties to send or receive a payment for each individual settlement amount.
