Application: System and method for executing data processing tasks (Patent ID: US20240061705A1)

The patent filed by The Toronto-Dominion Bank describes computing platforms, methods, and storage media for executing data processing tasks by distributing serially executable software object tasks for parallel execution across available threads and machines. The shared thread data allows for the exchange of thread status data between different threads, enhancing speed and efficiency while reducing processing power and memory usage. The apparatus and method outlined in the patent enable the parallel execution of software tasks without the need for modification to the underlying software code, dynamically adjusting the number of available threads based on workload, and distributing tasks across different types of available machines.

Furthermore, the patent details the use of a parallel runner object to execute classes associated with an original software object in parallel, even if the original software object was designed for serial execution. The distribution of tasks can be based on system configuration data and can involve separate machines or processing units with distinct resources. The patent also covers the storage of shared thread data on the same machine where the tasks are distributed, ensuring efficient communication between threads. Overall, the patent presents a comprehensive approach to optimizing data processing tasks through parallel execution, resource management, and shared data storage.
