  • Publication number: 20220121921
    Abstract: A processor training a reinforcement learning model can include receiving a first dataset representing an observable state in reinforcement learning to train a machine to perform an action. The processor receives a second dataset. Using the second dataset, the processor trains a machine learning classifier to make a prediction about an entity related to the action. The processor extracts an embedding from the trained machine learning classifier, and augments the observable state with the embedding to create an augmented state. Based on the augmented state, the processor trains a reinforcement learning model to learn a policy for performing the action, the policy including a mapping from state space to action space.

  • Publication number: 20210326332
    Abstract: A method for improving computing efficiency of a computing device for temporal directed cycle detection in a transaction graph includes preparing the transaction graph based on a plurality of transactions, the transaction graph including nodes indicating transaction origination points and transaction destination points, and edges indicating interactions between the nodes. Irrelevant nodes in the transaction graph are identified and pruned to provide a pruned, preprocessed transaction graph which can be partitioning into sections, where each section includes selected nodes that are linked to other linked nodes therein. Each of the sections having non-cyclic nodes can be trimmed prior to performing cycle detection on the resulting pruned transaction graph. Postprocessing pruning can be performed to further reduce the number of detected cycles that may be of interest to a particular application, such as in anti-money laundering.

  • Publication number: 20200118131
    Abstract: An example operation may include one or more of receiving, by a blockchain node, a request to transfer an asset, generating a blockchain transaction, obtaining one or more rules from a smart contract corresponding to a smart contract identifier, and comparing one or more parameters to the one or more rules to obtain a risk level. In response to the risk level being greater than a threshold, the example operation includes not executing the blockchain transaction. In response to the risk level not being greater than the threshold, the example operation includes executing the transaction. The request includes the smart contract identifier and the one or more parameters. The asset includes one of a trade item or a service to be performed. The blockchain transaction includes the smart contract identifier and the one or more parameters.

  • Patent number: 8826403
    Abstract: Auditing system logs of a remote client device is provided. Login session information entered at a workstation device accessing the remote client device to perform an activity associated with a work request is received. An access token is generated based on the login session information and information associated with the work request on the remote client device. The access token is compared with an audit log report of the remote client device that includes the activity associated with the work request performed by the workstation device on the remote client device. It is determined whether information in the access token matches information in the audit log report of the remote client device. In response to determining that the information in the access token does not match the information in the audit log report of the remote client device, an action alert is sent.
