A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11922412B2) discloses a system for data object compression and reduction. The system involves a processor, memory, and various logic components that work together to optimize adjustments to a set of data objects obtained from multiple data sources. These data objects represent currency exchange transactions and include information such as data object type, size, polarity, and identification data. By implementing an optimization procedure based on optimization constraint data provided by each data source, the system aims to reduce the total number of data objects in the set without losing essential information. This reduction is achieved by adjusting multiple data objects of the same type and opposite polarity, ultimately leading to data compression.

Furthermore, the system includes features such as a linear optimizer, tolerance data for limiting adjustments, and optimization weighting data based on preferences specified by data sources. The optimization procedure considers factors like data set aggregate magnitude and data link composite magnitude to determine the optimal set of adjustments. Additionally, the system can nullify data objects, add new data objects, and incorporate configuration data to enhance the compression process. By storing data indicative of the optimal adjustments, the system effectively compresses the set of data objects while maintaining the integrity of the currency exchange transaction information. Overall, this patented system offers a comprehensive approach to data compression and reduction in the context of currency exchange transactions, utilizing advanced algorithms and optimization techniques to streamline data processing and storage efficiently.
