  • Patent number: 11455517
    Abstract: Anomalies in a data set may be difficult to detect when individual items are not gross outliers from a population average. Disclosed is an anomaly detector that includes neural networks such as an auto-encoder and a discriminator. The auto-encoder and the discriminator may be trained on a training set that does not include anomalies. During training, an auto-encoder generates an internal representation from the training set, and reconstructs the training set from the internal representation. The training continues until data loss in the reconstructed training set is below a configurable threshold. The discriminator may be trained until the internal representation is constrained to a multivariable unit normal. Once trained, the auto-encoder and discriminator identify anomalies in the evaluation set. The identified anomalies in an evaluation set may be linked to transaction, security breach or population trends, but broadly, disclosed techniques can be used to identify anomalies in any suitable population.

  • Patent number: 11361849
    Abstract: Individual computer diagnostic support (CDS) systems are coupled to a ‘global’ CDS system, each of the CDS systems using the same learning system or the same learning system technique. Training and testing cases from each of the individual CDS systems are provided to the global CDS system, and the global CDS system uses these training cases to produce learning system parameters based on the training cases. Having more training cases than any of the individual CDS systems, the parameters provided by the global CDS system offer a higher quality diagnostic output than any of the individual CDS systems. The learning system parameters at the global CDS system may be provided to each of the individual CDS systems, to update the parameters of the individual CDS systems' learning system. The global CDS may also refine and/or adjust the structure of the embodied learning systems.

  • Patent number: 11341424
    Abstract: In response to receiving observed data of mixed observed variables, a mixed causality objective function, being suitable for continuous observed variables and discrete observed variables is determined, wherein the mixed causality objective function includes a causality objective function for continuous observed variables and a causality objective function for discrete observed variables and the fitting inconsistency is adjusted based on weighted factors of the observed variables. Then, the mixed causality objective function is optimally solved by using a mixed sparse causal inference, suitable for both continuous observed variables and discrete observed variables, using the mixed observed data under a constraint of a directed acyclic graph, to estimate causality among the observed variables.

  • Patent number: 11334757
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, implementing and using techniques for processing suspect duplicate records in a master data management system. A master data management module identifies two or more suspect duplicate records in the master data management system based on scores. A matching engine classifies the two or more suspect duplicate records, by comparing the scores against threshold values, into one of: a match, a non-match, and a possible match. The master data management module re-classifies the suspect duplicate records and adjusting the threshold values of the matching engine for classification of future records, in response to receiving, by a data stewardship client, a user input indicating an incorrect classification of the suspect duplicate records.
