Application: Distributed-computing method for computing a metric representative of a difference between two data (Patent ID: US20230401280A1)

The patent filed by Safran SA describes a distributed-computing method for computing a metric f(X,Y) that represents the difference between two data sets X and Y. The method involves a system with multiple devices where intermediate data is computed by each device and transmitted to a final device for determining the metric. The metric is calculated as a sum of various components based on the data sets X and Y.

Furthermore, the patent includes claims related to the method, such as the computation of the metric based on vectors of data, the use of biometric data for authentication or identification, and the implementation of the method on distributed-computing systems. The claims also detail specific formulas and processes for calculating the metric f(X,Y) and comparing it to predefined thresholds. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to computing metrics for data differences using distributed computing systems, particularly focusing on biometric applications.
