  • Publication number: 20190122138
    Abstract: A data analytics platform may be configured to construct an inferential model for a multivariate observation vector using inferential modeling in combination with component analysis, which may enable the data analytics platform evaluate only a subset of the variables in the observation vector and then output a predicted version of the multivariate observation vector that includes predicted values for the full set of variables that was originally included in the observation vector. In turn, the data analytics platform may use the predicted version of the multivariate observation vector output by the inferential model to determine whether an anomaly has occurred.

  • Publication number: 20180060703
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, devices, and methods for detecting anomalies in multivariate data received from an asset-related data source, such as signal data and/or other data from an asset. According to an example, a platform may receive multivariate data from an asset in an original coordinate space and transform the data in the original coordinate space to a transformed coordinate space having a relatively fewer number of dimensions. Additionally, the platform may standardize the data in the transformed coordinate space and modify the standardized data based on a comparison between the standardized data and a set of threshold values previously defined via training data reflective of normal asset operation. Thereafter, the platform may inversely transform the modified data back to the original coordinate space and perform an analysis to detect anomalies.

    Abstract: A system and method of improving anomaly detection rate in a communication network. A server computer may receive a data set comprising traffic flows communicated over the communication network and group the traffic flows into data categories based on the type of network service such as transport control protocol (TCP) port numbers or User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port numbers of the traffic flows, or based on application layer protocols associated with the traffic flows. The server computer may further detect anomalies in each of the data categories based on inconsistencies between at least one common feature associated with a data category and traffic flows in the data category. Different data categories may be associated with different the at least one common feature. The anomaly detection may be supervised or unsupervised.

  • Patent number: 7901630
    Abstract: An assay stick 7 includes a transparent reaction vessel or tube 14 having one or more microbeads 8 disposed therein. The microbeads 8 have a plurality of unique identification digital codes based on a diffraction grating 12 disposed therein that are detected when illuminated by incident light 24. The incident light 24 may be directed transversely onto the side or onto an end of the tube 14 with a narrow band (single wavelength) or multiple wavelength source, in which case the code is represented by a spatial distribution of light or a wavelength spectrum, respectively. The assay stick 7 may be reused or disposed upon completion of the assay. Alternatively, the beads may be attached to a strip or planar surface. The encoded beads can also provide traceability, quality-control, and authenticity of each bead 8 to its source and/or to the chemistry on each bead 8. Also, the low sample volume of the assay stick allows for faster reactions and better sensitivity.

  • Patent number: 7399643
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for aligning optical elements or microbeads, wherein each microbead has an elongated body with a code embedded therein along a longitudinal axis thereof to be read by a code reading device. The microbeads are aligned with a positioning device so the longitudinal axis of the microbeads is positioned in a fixed orientation relative to the code reading device. The microbeads are typically cylindrically shaped glass beads between 25 and 250 microns (?m) in diameter and between 100 and 500 ?m long, and have a holographic code embedded in the central region of the bead, which is used to identify it from the rest of the beads in a batch of beads with many different chemical probes. A cross reference is used to determine which probe is attached to which bead, thus allowing the researcher to correlate the chemical content on each bead with the measured fluorescence signal.
