Data Mining and Filtering
Government regulation and stiff competition are nothing new for the financial services industry. However, the recent wave of corporate governance scandals and the global political environment have swept in a new era of information regulation. In addition to standards such as SEC Rule 17 and the European Basel II initiative, financial services companies must also cope with additional requirements imposed by legislation such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Patriot Act. What these regulations all have in common is the mandate to ensure that your company thoroughly understands and can readily disclose events, actions, and relevant information that may have any bearing on financial and other operational results-regardless of where in the company that information exists.
Another Homeland Security organization using Inxight SmartDiscovery also relies on message traffic information to support counter terrorism. This organization receives hundreds of messages per day on topics relating to national security. Relying on the tools provided by SmartDiscovery, this organization is able to process and analyze its vast amount of message traffic to help discover links between certain events, people and situations. For obvious reasons, policy makers and government officials need this information in a timely fashion. SmartDiscovery provides immediate response, automating a previously time-consuming manual process and enabling better, faster decisions to be made.
One organization is using Inxight VizServer with its StarTree® and TableLensTM services to provide both a data entry tool for hierarchically understanding where the point of contact is for new data and for visually navigating both text and numerical data gathered from news, Web pages and other text formats. VizServer's visualization technologies are employed to show both multiple relationships and key points of connection to particular information, enabling users to see these connections in seconds and then explore them to discover even more connections.
Inxight ThingFinder is used in many military operations where unstructured data is the battlefield and the fight is to quickly find the most important pieces of information buried in mountains of message traffic that are able to help locate terrorists, determine their actions, associations, future plans, etc. Inxight's unique Entity Extraction is a key attribute in enabling U.S. government intelligence agencies to accurately and quickly analyze and extract information in many languages, including Arabic. Using data that Entity Extraction presents, federal analysts can track past and future terrorist activities that will aid in protecting our country.
Inxight ThingFinder is being used by one government/intelligence organization to identify key differentiating factors of a criminal's personal history: facial features, tattoos, scars, piercings, etc. The organization is also using ThingFinder to determine criminal information including places of residence, past crimes committed, sentencing records, and many other key attributes. When individual criminal information is stored and made readily available to nation-wide law enforcement offices, felons - as they cross state lines - can be more easily found and detained.Another government organization is using Inxight VizServer with StarTree to visually display inference analysis results. Both explicit and implicit relationships are determined using various additional software tools including Inxight SmartDiscovery. In this application, information regarding terrorists and the organizations they belong to can be extracted, correlated and then visually displayed. When an organization and its members are listed, other organizations that these individuals belong to are quickly associated and visually displayed. This capability is critical to pinpointing people and activities that may pose a threat to the American population.
