Application: Method, apparatus and electronic device for detecting data anomalies, and readable storage medium (Patent ID: US20240104072A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes a method and apparatus for detecting data anomalies by matching test data with a data rule based on historical data. The data rule consists of antecedent and consequent predicate sets, where the test data is flagged as anomalous if it satisfies all antecedent predicates but fails to satisfy at least one consequent predicate. The method involves determining global predicate sets, dividing them into antecedent and consequent sets, and screening out rules that meet specific constraint conditions. Additionally, the apparatus includes modules for receiving test data, matching with data rules, and screening out rules based on constraints.

Furthermore, the method and apparatus are designed to handle historical data containing discrete and continuous variables. For discrete variables, candidate predicates are generated based on possible values, while for continuous variables, decision tree models are used to train and extract cut-off values for creating predicate sets. The apparatus includes modules for generating candidate predicates, traversing discrete and continuous variables, training decision tree models, and creating predicate sets based on sorting results. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to detecting data anomalies using historical data and specific rule-based criteria.
