  • Patent number: 8666861
    Abstract: Systems and methods for risk and fraud mitigation are presented. According to one or more aspects of the disclosure, a plurality of transactions may be processed without applying one or more active fraud rules. A hit rate for at least one fraud rule of the one or more active fraud rules then may be determined. Thereafter, a positive hit rate for the at least one fraud rule may be determined based on fraud event data corresponding to the plurality of transactions. In some arrangements, each transaction of the plurality of transactions may be randomly selected, from a larger plurality of received transactions, for inclusion in the plurality of transactions to be processed without application of the one or more active fraud rules. Additionally or alternatively, in certain arrangements, one or more fraud rules may be activated or deactivated based on their corresponding hit rates and positive hit rates.

  • Publication number: 20140046136
    Abstract: A method for reducing an effect of a video artifact includes adjusting a phase of a second imaging device's video clock signal so that a phase of the second imaging device's video synchronization signal matches a phase of a first imaging device's video synchronization signal. An endoscopic system includes a first imaging device, a second imaging device, a light source, and a controller that reduces an artifact in an image produced by the first imaging device. In some embodiments, the first imaging device faces the light source.
