  • Publication number: 20200356892
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for generating adverse-action reasons for adverse credit-application determinations. In an embodiment, a server calculates a log-odds contribution for each of multiple input variables of a machine-learning model for each of multiple training-data observations. The server identifies a working minimum log-odds contribution and from that a maximum score for each input variable. The server calculates a log-odds contribution and from that an actual score for each input variable for an application data set. The server calculates a score difference between the maximum and actual scores for each input variable. The server outputs an adverse-action report that is associated with the application data set. The adverse-action report includes an indication for each of a predefined number of the input variables having the highest score differences.

  • Patent number: 10820207
    Abstract: A backward compatible frame reuse mechanism that allows new information to be defined a reused frame without causing any incorrect operation in a legacy receive device. To generate a reused frame, a portion of the frame in the first format is masked with a predetermined masking sequence (PMS) and thereby redefined as new fields in a second format. When a device that supports the reuse scheme receives a frame that possible is a reused frame, the device checks the potentially reused portion according to the first format after de-masking and also checks according to the second format without de-masking. Based on the check results, the device selects a format to resolve the frame. A legacy device receiving the reused frame only checks the reused portion without de-masking, which results in a certain check error and makes the device discard the frame without any harmful operation.

  • Patent number: 10817538
    Abstract: A system and method of analyzing data receives a user-specified selection of a data source, a user-specified selection of a type of data representation, and a user-specified description of a view to be constructed in accordance with the user-specified selection of the type of data representation. An application program interface (API) function generates a multidimensional query based on the user-specified type of data representation and the user-specified description of the view to be constructed, and submits the multidimensional query to the an On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP) server. The application program interface (API) function receives a multidimensional response from the OLAP server containing results acquired by the multidimensional query of the data source, and generates the view based on the results contained in the multidimensional response and in accordance with the user-specified selection of the type of data representation and the user-specified description of the view.
