Application: Intelligently storing data in a fault tolerant system using robotic process automation and blockchain (Patent ID: US20240095225A1)

The patent filed by Bank of America Corp. describes a method and system for intelligently storing data in a fault-tolerant system using robotic process automation and blockchain technology. The system involves generating a parent table to store data points, assigning commit numbers and row numbers to each data point, and creating ledger systems to illustrate relationships between the data points. The system can receive requests to modify or restore the parent table, and based on authorization, make changes to the ledgers to reflect modifications to the data points.

The method outlined in the patent involves generating commands to store data points, creating commit nodes and row hash nodes, and generating ledger systems to track relationships between data points. The system can receive requests to modify data points, identify corresponding nodes in the ledger systems, and update the relationships accordingly. Additionally, the system can determine authorization for modifying data points based on access authorization databases. The patent also covers the process of restoring the parent table to a previous state by removing data points and nodes linked to removed data points. Overall, the patent describes a comprehensive system for storing and managing data in a fault-tolerant manner using blockchain and robotic process automation technologies.
