This paper proposes an innovative fraud detection method, built upon existing fraud detection research and <i>Minority Report</i>, to deal with the data mining problem of skewed data distributions. This method uses backpropagation (BP), together with naive Bayesian (NB) and C4.5 algorithms, on data partitions derived from minority oversampling with(More)
BACKGROUND With an ever-growing ageing population, dementia is fast becoming the chronic disease of the 21st century. Elderly people affected with dementia progressively lose their autonomy as they encounter problems in their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). Hence, they need supervision and assistance from their family members or professional caregivers,(More)
Using ambient intelligence to assist people with dementia in carrying out their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) independently in smart home environment is an important research area, due to the projected increasing number of people with dementia. We present herein, a system and algorithms for the automated recognition of ADLs; the ADLs are in terms of(More)
Almost every person has a life-long personal name which is officially recognised and has only one correct version in their language. Each personal name typically has two components/parts: a first name (also known as given, fore, or Christian name) and a last name (also known as family name or surname). Both these name components are strongly influenced by(More)
This paper describes a rapid technique: communal analysis suspicion scoring (CASS), for generating numeric suspicion scores on streaming credit applications based on implicit links to each other, over both time and space. CASS includes pair-wise communal scoring of identifier attributes for applications, definition of categories of suspiciousness for(More)
In this work, we presented the strategies and techniques that we have developed for predicting the near-future churners and win-backs for a telecom company. On a large-scale and real-world database containing customer profiles and some transaction data from a telecom company, we first analyzed the data schema, developed feature computation strategies and(More)
This poster presents an integrated framework to enable using standard non-sequential machine learning tools for accurate multi-modal activity recognition. Our framework contains simple pre- and post-classification strategies such as class-imbalance correction on the learning data using structure preserving oversampling, leveraging the sequential nature of(More)
This paper presents an integrated framework to enable using standard non-sequential machine learning tools for accurate multi-modal activity recognition. We develop a novel framework that contains simple pre- and post-classification strategies to improve the overall performance. We achieve this through class-imbalance correction on the learning data using(More)
