Blockchains (smart contracts, distributed ledgers) and rights management broadly construed are the themes of today's Spotlight Patents. Assigned to Mythical, the first patent addresses techniques for using shared user inventory information to initiate a peer-to-peer exchange of a non-fungible digital asset. Assigned to Netspective, the second patent addresses techniques for a blockchain system for natural language processing.
10,984,400, "Systems and methods for using shared user inventory information to initiate a peer-to-peer exchange of a non-fungible digital asset," assigned to Mythical, Inc.
Systems and methods for using shared user inventory information to initiate peer-to-peer exchanges of digital assets that are usable within an online gaming platform are disclosed. Exemplary implementations may: receive a sharing request for information regarding a first user inventory; access a blockchain to obtain asset information; transfer the asset information in response to the sharing request; receive an offer request for the transfer of ownership of a first digital asset from a first user to a second user; if the offer according to the offer request is accepted, receive a transfer request and transfer the ownership of the first digital asset as requested.
10,984,913, "Blockchain system for natural language processing," assigned to Netspective Communications LLC.
A blockchain configured system includes a router and a blockchain configured record bank. The router collects data and converts it in a format in accordance with a defined standard. The blockchain configured record bank can include or be coupled to a data repository. The blockchain configured record bank can be configured to be coupled to the data provider through the router over a communication network. The blockchain configured record bank stores the data received from the data provider and can be accessible or searchable from within or outside the blockchain configured record bank. The blockchain configured record bank can be coupled to or include a data logging unit that maintains metadata associated with the data and configured to facilitate natural language processing capabilities. The router and the blockchain configured record bank may be coupled to machine learning system, metadata validation system, and master data validation system.
