Identifying Online Fraudsters with Anomaly Detection Using Network Effects

  • June 18, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • IBM

CMU Professor Christos Faloutsos will review some of the techniques of anomaly detection and show how applying 'network effects'
to eBay transactions can be used to unearth hidden networks of eBay fraudsters.
Detecting anomalies and fraud has important applications in finance, online commerce, healthcare, law enforcement etc. Using network effects ('guilt by association') with large data sets is becoming increasingly effective in a range of analyses from identifying fraudulent transactions to uncovering social media players engaged in artificially boosting networks. Attend this session to see real world examples of graphical mining in action.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
