Application: Digital enrollment systems and methods (Patent ID: US20230376968A1)

The patent filed by FMR LLC describes a computerized method for responding to a customer's request to enroll in a digital service. The method involves generating a personalized media clip using an AI model that selects relevant media objects based on customer data and request information, forming a randomized composite of these objects, and providing the clip to the customer along with instructions to record an audio description. A confidence score is then generated based on the accuracy of the audio description, and customer enrollment into the digital service is determined at least partially based on this score.

The method includes various aspects such as using visual images or audio segments as relevant media objects, training the AI model to understand relationships between historical contexts and media objects, processing the text representation of the audio description, and incorporating fraud analytics and digital enrollment guest lists into the confidence score calculation. Additionally, the method involves comparing the confidence score to predefined levels, verifying the customer's biometric signal, and presenting a new personalized media clip if the confidence score falls below a certain threshold. The patent also outlines a computerized means for implementing this method, including generating the personalized media clip, processing the audio description, and enrolling the customer based on the confidence score.
