SAS® Adaptive Learning and Intelligent Agent System Features

Rare event detection

  • Combines state-of-the-art supervised machine learning algorithms, best practices and other fine-tuned techniques to detect fraud and other rare events.
  • Supports exporting of models to SAS Model Manager.
    • Allows administrators to utilize the power of other SAS tools by publishing to SAS Model Manager, where other tools can access the model.
  • Includes APIs that give you the flexibility to use other systems for record scoring, alert generation, classification and model retraining.


  • Includes a white box model and record scorecard to take the mystery out of machine learning.
  • Delivers narrative, text and visuals for describing and interpreting models.
  • Allows analysts and investigators to provide transparency into decisioning and explain why someone was identified as fraudulent.

Adaptive learning life cycle

  • Creates an adaptive learning system that continually improves its ability to detect fraud and react rapidly to the emergence of new fraud patterns via integration with SAS Visual Investigator.
  • Feeds triage results (e.g., alert productivity ratings) from SAS Visual Investigator back into the training data for training new models.
  • Supports the entire analytics life cycle – from data, to discovery, to deployment.

Easy-to-use interface

Provides an intuitive visual interface that enables users untrained in data science to:

  • Create models for detecting rare events by selecting:
    • Training data tables that include records classified for fraud.
    • Target column containing fraud classifications.
    • Values that indicate fraud. 
    • Model complexity.
    • Variables to exclude or include.
  • Evaluate model effectiveness and select the appropriate alerting threshold.
    • Provides charts describing model accuracy. Compares values in the target column to the model’s classification of each record and charts the balance of false positives and negatives for each threshold.
    • Automates best threshold selection.
    • Lets you override the threshold with a threshold of your own.
    • Enables you to select a threshold and see the impact on false positives and negatives.
    • Supports multiple versions of a model.
      • Enables you to evaluate each model and alerting threshold prior to model deployment.
  • Deploy models at the click of a button.
    • Automatically creates a set of jobs for generating scores and alerts.

Automated integration

  • Automatically integrates with SAS Visual Investigator for scoring, alerting, triaging, refreshing training data and retraining models.
