  • Publication number: 20190289025
    Abstract: The invention describes a system and method employing machine learning and artificial intelligence engines to monitor data streams in real-time across multiple channels in order to detect anomalies and generate prioritized alerts. In particular, the invention may continuously collect data across multiple channels. The obtained data may be compared with reference data to continuously update a confidence level associated with the user, channel, entity, or other identifying factor. Based on the confidence level, profile the user to detect any inconsistencies in the data collected over time and generate an alert to the user in question and potentially to other downstream users or entities. In this way, the invention not only provides a way to detect anomalies in a cross-channel fashion, but also creates a mechanism for feedback wherein the system may incorporate user feedback to resolve alerts and detected anomalies.

  • Publication number: 20190272361
    Abstract: The invention is a novel system that uses a continuous and competitive authentication process to identify users within an entity's systems. In particular, the invention may continuously collect authentication data across multiple channels (e.g., authentication data obtained through a mobile app, website, telephone, on-site methods, and the like) as well as non-authentication data. The obtained data may be compared with reference data (e.g., historical data) to continuously update a confidence level associated with the user. Based on the confidence level, profile the user to detect any inconsistencies in the data collected over time. The system may further execute one or more competitive processes in parallel with traditional authentication processes to identify potentially unauthorized users.

  • Patent number: 10319397
    Abstract: Narrow band dwell occurs when air bearings corresponding to a set of read and/or write heads within a hard disc drive remain within a fixed narrow band of one or more storage platters for an extended period of time. The air bearings displace lubricant on the storage platters and may redeposit the lubricant as droplets on the platters. The presently disclosure technology is directed to monitoring a hard disc drive for narrow band dwell, and in some implementations, implementing operations to mitigate narrow band dwell. More specifically, the presently disclosure technology may detect an overflying air-bearing slider position, apply a lubrication film displacement formula to a narrow band of the storage platter, apply a lubrication film reflow formula to one or more other narrow bands of the storage platter, and track lubrication film thickness over time in each of the narrow bands of the storage platter.
