  • Patent number: 11997098
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for predicting a metric value for an entity associated with a query node in a graph that represents a network. In embodiments, using a user's profile as the query node, a metric about that user may be estimated based, at least in part, as a function of how well connected the query node is to a whitelist of “good” users/nodes in the network, a blacklist of “bad” users/nodes in the network, or both. In embodiments, one or more nodes or edges may be weighted when determining a final score for the query node. In embodiments, the final score regarding the metric may be used to take one or more actions relative to the query node, including accepting it into a network, allowing or rejecting a transaction, assigning a classification to the node, using the final score to compute another estimate for a node, etc.
