  • Patent number: 7275047
    Abstract: A method of processing data relating to a plurality of examples using a data classifier arranged to classify input data into one of a number of classes, and a rule inducer, comprising the steps of: (i) inputting a series of inputs to the data classifier so as to obtain a series of corresponding outputs; (ii) inputting said series of outputs and at least some of said series of inputs to the rule inducer so as to obtain a series of rules which describe relationships between the series of inputs to the data classifier and the series of corresponding outputs from the data classifier.

  • Patent number: 6437812
    Abstract: A graphical user interface (GUI) is described which enables hierarchically structured information to be presented and analysed by a user quickly and easily. In one example, the GUI is for a fraud management system and the information is about “alarms”. Each alarm is an indicator of potential fraud and several types of alarm are presented, where the type of an alarm depends on the method of obtaining that alarm. The types of alarm are arranged in a hierarchical structure and a representation of the hierarchical structure is displayed on a display screen. A user is able to select one or more parts of the hierarchical structure in order to display information about all the alarms of the selected types and subtypes. This enables the user to quickly and easily view required information without the need to make many user actions and selections. The representation of the hierarchical structure may be tailored by the user. This is done by collapsing or expanding parts of the hierarchical representation.
