Application: Systems and methods for training and applying machine learning systems in fraud detection (Patent ID: US20240086925A1)

The patent filed by The PNC Financial Services Group Inc. discloses systems, methods, and computer-readable media for identifying unauthorized actions in a computing system. The technology involves generating indicators using a machine learning model to express the severity associated with unauthorized activity for processed actions, storing these indicators in a database, and generating alerts when the indicators exceed a predetermined threshold. The alerts are queued in an ordered list, and the processed actions are retrieved based on the order in the list. The machine learning model is used to determine whether to stop, flag, or allow the processed actions based on the generated indicators.

The method and system described in the patent utilize a machine learning model trained to predict the likelihood of unauthorized activity for processed actions. The alerts are generated periodically to monitor and detect unauthorized activity, with the severity of unauthorized activity indicated by a two-digit number. The indicators are assigned based on factors like Virtual Private Network (VPN) indicators or proprietary knowledge, and the system can automatically hold, flag for review, or allow processed actions based on the severity of the indicators. The technology also involves retaining information from previously generated indicators to tune the current indicators and ordering generated alerts based on their probabilities of unauthorized activity.
