  • Patent number: 10290001
    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: 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.

  • Publication number: 20180053114
    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.

  • Patent number: 9779407
    Abstract: Real-time fraud prevention software-as-a-service (SaaS) products include computer instruction sets to enable a network server to receive medical histories, enrollments, diagnosis, prescription, treatment, follow up, billings, and other data as they occur. The SaaS includes software instruction sets to combine, correlate, categorize, track, normalize, and compare the data sorted by patient, healthcare provider, institution, seasonal, and regional norms. Fraud reveals itself in the ways data points deviate from norms in nonsensical or inexplicable conduct. The individual behaviors of each healthcare provider are independently monitored, characterized, and followed by self-spawning smart agents that can adapt and change their rules as the healthcare providers evolve. Such smart agents will issue flags when their particular surveillance target is acting out of character, outside normal parameters for them. Fraud controls can therefore be much tighter than those that have to accommodate those of a diverse group.

  • Publication number: 20160182544
    Abstract: A method that protects a network computer system from the malicious acts of hackers and its own system administrators includes a behavior analysis of system administrators within the confines of their particular job tasks. A suite of abnormal behavior detection models analyze each display terminal input entered by recognized system administrators. Any alerts that issue are forwarded to a case management system for investigation. A cadre of trained investigators with case management display terminals attached to control the case management system make decisions based on what is displayed to them and issue actions and reports by inputs to their display terminals. These contribute to the building and updating of a database and updating of the abnormal behavior detection models through adaptive learning. The decisions, actions and reports control the accessibility and authority of each system administrator at their respective display terminals.

  • Publication number: 20160110512
    Abstract: A method of preventing healthcare fraud-waste-abuse uses artificial intelligence machines to limit financial losses. Healthcare payment request claims are analyzed by predictive models and their behavioral details are compared to running profiles unique to each healthcare provider submitting the claims. A decision results that the instant healthcare payment request claim is or is not fraudulent-wasteful-abusive. If it is, a second analysis of a group behavioral in which the healthcare provider is clustered using unsupervised learning algorithms and compared to a running profile unique to each group of healthcare providers submitting the claims. An overriding decision results if the instant healthcare payment request claim is or is not fraudulent-wasteful-abusive according to group behavior.

  • Publication number: 20160071017
    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: 20150339672
    Abstract: A method of fraud management follows several steps that each require the involvement and support of financial networks, secure servers, and proprietary databases. A selected variety of fraud classification algorithms are assembled together into a “jury” that includes neural networks, case based reasoning, decision trees, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, and rules and constraints. Operating parameters that matter specifically to each are extracted in parallel from the same records of historical transaction data, and that then is used to initialize a general payment fraud model. This is then converted into computer-program executable form for later execution on a third party computer system. These are further integrated by expert programmers and development system with smart agents and associated real-time profiling, recursive profiles, and long-term profiles.

  • Publication number: 20150339673
    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.
