Vadalog for fraud detection

06 Mar 2019
Vadalog is a logical language that extends the Datalog reasoning language with various features useful for reasoning over knowledge graph. Vadalog was carefully designed to work even on very large databases. The Vadalog System is a knowledge graph management system connecting a core Vadalog reasoning engine via APIs to databases, machine-learning packages, the OXPath Web data extraction System, and various other third-party software systems. In this talk, we first introduce the basic features of the Vadalog language and glance over the Vadalog system. We highlight a few application examples. In particular, we argue that Vadalog’s recursive reasoning capabilities are  well-suited for detecting or preventing frauds such as money laundering.
