A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11922516B2) outlines a method for dynamic extraction and analysis of data. The method involves receiving identification of multiple data stores storing transaction datasets, generating scripts based on parameters and a filtering scheme, extracting subsets of transaction datasets in real-time, merging these subsets into an output dataset, analyzing the output dataset to recognize patterns such as fraud attempts or trends, and outputting alerts based on the recognized patterns. The method also includes features like automatically correcting disparities, normalizing datasets, and utilizing machine learning models for pattern recognition.

Furthermore, the patent includes claims for a system and a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium implementing the dynamic data extraction and analysis method. The system comprises components like a communication transceiver, memory, and processor to carry out the steps of identifying data stores, generating scripts, extracting subsets, merging datasets, analyzing patterns, and issuing alerts. The computer-readable storage medium contains a program executable by a processor to perform the method, including features like identifying fraud attempts, trends, disparities, and deviations in transaction data. Overall, the patent presents a comprehensive approach to dynamically extracting, analyzing, and alerting based on patterns in transaction datasets in real-time, with potential applications in fraud detection, trend analysis, and data reconciliation across various data store platforms and structures.
