    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: 20150073981
    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: 20150066771
    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.

  • Publication number: 20150046332
    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: 20150046216
    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.

    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: 20150039512
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence cross-channel fraud management system comprises a parallel arrangement of single-channel, fully trained fraud models that each integrate several artificial intelligence classifiers like neural networks, case based reasoning, decision trees, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, and rules and constraints. These are further integrated by the expert programmers and development system with smart agents and associated real-time profiling, recursive profiles, and long-term profiles. The trainable general payment fraud models are trained into channel specialists with channel-filtered supervised and unsupervised data to produce each channels payment fraud model. This then is applied by a commercial client to process real-time cross-channel transactions and authorization requests for fraud scores. A detection of fraud in one channel is used to immediately sensitize all the other fraud channel models to the involved accountholder.

  • Patent number: 8458069
    Abstract: A fraud detection engine is provided that analyzes transactions for fraudulent transactions. The transactions may include credit card or debit card transactions. The fraud detection engine may identify possible sources of fraud. The fraud detection engine may identify possible phony acceptors that masquerade as genuine merchants. The fraud detection engine may identify compromising points where accounts become compromised and are prone to fraudulent transactions thereafter. The fraud detection engine may receive and analyze transaction data in real-time or in batch mode. The fraud detection engine may use fuzzy logic. The fraud detection engine may use artificial intelligence such as case-based reasoning or business rules.
