I interested in general commentary on this topic.
How strong is the community's work when augmenting the realtime rule scanning (over
potential fraud events) with statistical support package? E.g. something applying
The rules engine is not that interesting for fraud management unless augmented with such a
package - one which can continually rebalance the percentiles that correspond to different
risk bands - for some cumulative risk score over the various fraud predictors for the
compliance/remediation program of some industry area. Typically, such predictors are
velocity counters (e.g. how many claims of type X are submitted per office, or per
individual), and the percentiles are rebalanced nightly to help auto-learn over time what
the norms are for each velocity metric.

Subject: [rules-users] Some Fusion clarification
I'm trying my hand at CEP for fraud detection (analysing incoming claims to determine
whether they are suspicious), and have 2 question/clarifications.
Is the only difference between a fact and an event that an event has a
I have medical claims coming in, and basically, that is my only event type; say,
Now, I've got my rule engine working, where Claims are facts. Will I now just insert
my facts as events, and continue as normal, using accumulate and sliding window syntax?
Most of my rules will have to do with comparing complex variables from the incoming claims
to historical averages. (I assume this is the main use of Drools Fusion, in general)
Should I just compute these averages in java and insert them into the WM?
If I want to compare monthly averages, (lets say, this month a provider claims 50% more
than last month), am I meant to calculate this beforehand?
Or, do I use pseudo-time to pump through historical events, all the while firing rules to
update the average, until I have processed all of the historical data into these running
average variables, and then switch to real-time?
I'm having trouble with this big picture.
