Performing real-time outlier detection to identify fraudulent credit card purchases using DBSCAN and Deephaven

Credit card fraud causes billions of dollars in damages each year. The most infamous cases have affected tens to hundreds of millions of consumers in single attacks through the unlawful exposure of personally identifiable information (PII) related to credit cards. Isolated cases are also common, and can be caused by a variety of methods including skimming, social engineering, and application fraud.

In order to protect their customers, credit card companies rely on fraud detection and prevention software to analyze credit card purchases. These programs look for unusual or unexpected patterns to classify them as possibly fraudulent. In this blog, we propose our own real-time credit card fraud detection solution using Python with Deephaven.

The code in this blog uses SciKit-Learn, which does not come with Deephaven's base images. To run this code, ensure you have the module installed. Here's how you can Install Python packages and Use Python packages in queries. We also have a guide for How to use SciKit-Learn in Deephaven.

Cross the finish line with a PR by exercising your data

It's the time of year for comfort food and Turkey Trots! Maybe you're training for a race or simply maintaining an exercise routine. Personally, I consistently use my fitness watch to ensure I'm meeting my step goals and to track my progress as I try to shave a few seconds off my mile time. The free Strava app beloved by runners and cyclists is another great resource to motivate you in your fitness journey and connect with a community. You can track a variety of exercises and store your results in the app. Did you know you can also download this data as .fit files?

In this blog, we walk you through (pun intended!) downloading your Strava data and importing it into Deephaven Community Core, where you can get an overview of your performance and even use this information to adjust your routine for more health benefits.

Each morning, the world waits to see if a 13-year-old pug named Noodle is having a “Bones day” or a “No Bones day.” Over the last few months, Noodle’s owner, Jonathan, has chronicled declarations of Nones/No Bones days via TikTok, which depend on Noodle's reaction after Jonathan picks him up from his dog bed.

If Noodle remains standing when Jonathan pulls away, it is a Bones day. This has come to symbolize a productive day and the permission to take risks. However, if Noodle falls down, it is a No Bones day, when viewers are encouraged to indulge in self-care or enjoy a lazy, relaxing day.

Users across social media have rallied around this concept, eagerly awaiting Noodle's pronouncements, especially if an important event is coming up, like a job interview or even their wedding day. You may be wondering: Is there rhyme or reason to Bones vs. No Bones days?

Right now, there are relatively few data points (by our team’s count, we have less than 40 readings), but there is enough to work with to start building a predictor model that can help guide our days when Noodle hasn’t posted or we have an important date coming up (which ideally would fall on a Bones day).
