Schwegman has recommended that some of our inventions are so novel, that Trade Secret protection is the best route. This is the same approach that Coca-Cola uses to protect the "secret formula". Since a patent application must, by definition, include enough detail that a technical expert can reproduce the result, the publication of the patent can also spawn similar approaches that are just different enough to avoid a claim. In other words, by explaining how you have done it in such detail, you can inspire others by explaining some of the key challenges. For these reasons, we have kept certain inventions in the vault.
We have filed many additional patent applications, incorporating hundreds of claims, and will have more to file in the future. In many patent applications, we have combined claims to reduce paperwork and cost. These have been filed with a Non-Publication request, meaning that the detail will not be published until the patent is issued. All have been assigned to Intensity Analytics Corporation.

Authentication Via Typing Cadence, Gestures, and QR Codes
Issued March 12, 2019
This covers the algorithms and techniques supporting both existing products and to-be-released products relating to wearables and gestures. Among other applications, this allows for a method to construct a one-time, “challenge” phrase the user must enter to confirm that the right person is in front of the computer.
10,872,336 System and Method for Independent User Effort-Based Validation
System and Method for Independent User Effort-Based Validation
Issued December 20, 2020
This allows for a provider to issue a physical or electronic credential that connects effort to other components, and can be used to validate identity on disconnected systems. With this portability, GDPR Article 20 requirements are met, and healthcare insurance fraud can be easily addressed, as well as anonymous authentication requirements, such as medical trials.
10,891,616 System and Method for Effort-Based User Authentication
System and Method for Effort-Based User Authentication
Issued January 12, 2021
Authentication with an application token. This allows for a trusted provider (SaaS, etc.) to offer third-party validation of identity without disclosing any personal information, and maintains privacy to comply with GDPR and other regulations.
