  • Patent number: 10671915
    Abstract: A method for operating digital electronic appliance that empanels several different artificial intelligence (AI) classification technologies into a “jury” uses combinational digital logic to render “verdicts” about the need for service and impending equipment failures of the machines they monitor. Networks can be used to forward signals from remote locations to a centralized appliance that may be plugged as a module into a server. The appliance outputs can also be communicated over networks to servers that will muster appropriate maintenance personnel who are forewarned as to the nature of the trouble.

  • Publication number: 20200153839
    Abstract: An Internet-of-things (IoT) mechanizes, computerizes, automates, instruments, includes, and connects a broadly dispersed and extensively diverse universe of unrelated “things” to the Internet, e.g., credit cards, home appliances, industrial machinery, airplanes, cars, municipal water pumps, mobile devices, rain gauges, etc. Each thing is assigned a resident local “smart agent”. Or an entity, manifesting remotely only as transaction records and reports, is assigned a virtual smart agent in a network server. These data structures follow, track, record, chart, monitor, characterize, describe, render, and otherwise provide a label and handle on independent things and entities.

  • Publication number: 20200111100
    Abstract: A method of improving the training and performance of predictive models. A first method of operating an artificial intelligence machine produces predictive model language documents describing improved predictive models that generate better business decisions from raw data record inputs. A second method of operating an artificial intelligence machine including processors for predictive model algorithms produces and outputs better business decisions from raw data record inputs. Both methods enrich the raw data records their processors are fed by deleting data fields with data values that have little benefit in decision making, and that derive and add new data fields from information sources then available that do benefit in the decision making of the artificial intelligence machine through improved accuracies of prediction.

  • Publication number: 20200074472
    Abstract: A method of reducing financial fraud by operating artificial intelligence machines organized into parallel sets of predictive models with each set specially trained with supervised and unsupervised training data filtered for a particular financial channel. Each set integrates several artificial intelligence classifiers like neural networks, case based reasoning, decision trees, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, business rules and constraints, smart agents and associated real-time profiling, recursive profiles, and long-term profiles. Suspicious and abnormal activities in any channel communicate across predictive models for all the financial channels through real-time memory storage updates to the smart agent profiles they all share.

  • Publication number: 20200074471
    Abstract: A method for minimizing merchant data breach damage depends on computers and financial networks to carry out its steps. Every payment card transaction witnessed each day by a network server is assessed by a “jury” of fraud classification algorithms and assigned a fraud-risk-verdict. Those payment transactions receiving a high-risk-fraud verdict are retained and sorted into a table according to transaction date, cardholder, and merchant. The raw verdicts are normalized and standardized according to merchant size groups, e.g., to even the comparisons that will be made. A daily tally is made for each merchant of the number of suspected-card-visits, the number of highly-probable-card-visits, and the number of total-card-visits. A merchant data-breach alert is issued if a final score and sum of the normalized verdicts exceeds a threshold.

  • Publication number: 20200058030
    Abstract: An artificial-intelligence based, authorization data processing system and method that use networked electronic computers are provided. Included are one or more smart agent data structures tasked to individually follow past transaction data and behaviors, and to provide its artificial intelligence observations on the magnitude, type, and quality of payment card revenues and business routinely engaged in by the individual, e.g., a cardholder whose transaction request is pending. The computed level of acceptable transaction risk is raised in proportion to the cardholder's business value. As a further expedient, such quality cardholders may never be subject to a “declined transaction” if the requested payment transaction were less than some liberal minimum to meet an appropriate threshold level.

  • Publication number: 20200051087
    Abstract: A business method to reverse an authorization request denial made according to general guidelines if the particular customer and the particular transaction pass various threshold tests. Alternatively, each customer is assigned different and independent personal thresholds for transaction types, amounts, times, locations, and context. These thresholds are then applied if an instant payment transaction request is about to be declined.

  • Publication number: 20190279218
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence fraud management solution comprises a development system to generate a population of virtual smart agents corresponding to every cardholder, merchant, and device ID that hinted at during modeling and training. Each smart agent is nothing more than a pigeonhole and summation of various aspects of every transaction in a real-time profile of less than ninety days and a long-term profile of transactions older than ninety days. Actors and entities are built of no more than the attributes the express in each transaction. In fact, smart agents themselves take no action on their own and are not capable of gesticulations. They are merely attributes, descriptors, what can be seen on the surface.

  • Publication number: 20190228415
    Abstract: A merchant data breach process comprises processing daily payment transaction data with a risk and compliance platform to obtain a fraud score for each constituent transaction. Constituent transactions with high risk fraud scores are sorted into a table according to the transaction date, cardholder, and merchant. The table data is scored according to suspected card visits, highly probable visits, and all card visits. The scores are normalized according to merchant size grouping through the use of multipliers. The normalized scores are summed together day-by-day into a final score. A timely warning of an underlying and expanding security rupture caused by a merchant data breach is issued for damage control and law enforcement.

  • Publication number: 20190213498
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence system comprises a computer network server connected to receive and analyze millions of simultaneous text and/or voice messages written by humans to be read and understood by humans. Key, or otherwise important words in sentences are recognized and arrayed. Each such word is contributed to a qualia generator that spawns the word into its possible contexts, themes, or other reasonable ambiguities that can exist at the level of sentences, paragraphs, and missives. A thesaurus-like table is employed to expand each word into a spread of discrete definitions. Several such spreads are used as templates on the others to find petals that exhibit a convergence of meaning. Once the context of a whole missive has been predicted, each paragraph is deconstructed into sub-contexts that are appropriate within the overall theme. Particular contexts identified are then useful to trigger an actionable output.

  • Publication number: 20190164181
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence fraud management system comprises a real-time analytics process for analyzing the behavior of a user from the transaction events they generate over a network. An initial population of smart agent profiles is stored in a computer file system and more smart agent profiles are added as required as transaction data is input. Transactions in particular merchant category codes (MCC) are likely to be followed by predictable related transactions. A forecast of those likely future transactions is calculated and used to desensitize corresponding smart agent profile datapoints. Fewer false positives are produced and overall fraud management performance is improved.

  • Publication number: 20190130407
    Abstract: A method of cross-channel fraud management depends on an artificial intelligence machine to execute algorithms for a parallel arrangement of single-channel, fully trained fraud models that each integrate neural networks, case based reasoning, decision trees, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, rules and constraints, and smart agents and shared profiles. Specialized vertical business transactional channel payment fraud models are trained by selectively filtering supervised and unsupervised data. Then in real-time transactions and authorization requests coming from many different transactional channels are directed to a corresponding model for fraud detection. A detection of fraud in one channel is added to detections made by models in the other fraud channel models to develop a more complete risk analysis of single accountholders and merchants. Low level, but broad spectrum fraud will be seen as a signal an accountholder has been compromised or there was a wider merchant data breach.

  • Publication number: 20190108456
    Abstract: An automated method of predictive model development first cleans up raw supervised and unsupervised training data with a step that uses an algorithm to make every field of every record consistent, cohesive, and productive. Then the resulting flat data is given texture in a next step by a data enrichment algorithm that culls fields that do not contribute to predictive model building and that adds new fields computed from data combinations that are tested to add value to later steps that build different types of predictive models. Another late step for building smart-agents and their entity profiles uses another algorithm that benefits greatly from the cleaned and highly enriched training data. The predictive models and smart-agents and their entity profiles are then rendered as deliverable predictive model markup language documents in a final step executed by a specialized algorithm.

  • Publication number: 20190095924
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence fraud management system comprises real-time analytics process for analyzing the behavior of a user from the transaction events they generate over a network. An initial population of smart agent profiles is stored in a computer file system and more smart agent profiles are added as required as transaction data is input. Vectors are assigned to point to a run of profile data that all share the same atomic time interval. The vectors are rolled around to point to newer time intervals as they occur, retiring vectors to expired time intervals, and reassigning those vectors to point to the newer atomic time intervals. Vectors correspond to particular smart agent profiles (P) and are collected into lists stored in profile blocks with a meta-data header. Transactions that involve a particular entity are made quickly accessible and retrievable by such vectors.

  • Patent number: 10019744
    Abstract: A real-time fraud prevention system enables merchants and commercial organizations on-line to assess and protect themselves from high-risk users. A centralized database is configured to build and store dossiers of user devices and behaviors collected from subscriber websites in real-time. Real, low-risk users have webpage click navigation behaviors that are assumed to be very different than those of fraudsters. Individual user devices are distinguished from others by hundreds of points of user-device configuration data each independently maintains. A client agent provokes user devices to volunteer configuration data when a user visits respective webpages at independent websites. A collection of comprehensive dossiers of user devices is organized by their identifying information, and used calculating a fraud score in real-time. Each corresponding website is thereby assisted in deciding whether to allow a proposed transaction to be concluded with the particular user and their device.
