Revellers celebrate the summer solstice on Salisbury Plain in southern England June 21, 2014. Stonehenge is a celebrated venue of festivities during the summer solstice - the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere - and it attracts thousands of revellers, spiritualists and tourists. Druids, a pagan religious order dating back to Celtic Britain, believe Stonehenge was a centre of spiritualism more than 2,000 years ago. REUTERS/Kieran Doherty (BRITAIN - Tags: SOCIETY ENVIRONMENT)

Similar to software used to look for Alzheimer’s in brain scans, the technology responsible for controlling spacecraft in orbit around Earth is being repurposed to look for signs of bank fraud. Engineers from the ESA have created a new system called Feedzai by adapting spacecraft software capable of processing huge amounts of data to look for anomalies, such as a change in temperature, and alerting the operators. This is a comparatively simple task as operators generally know what can cause these anomalies and can easy rectify the problems. 

Modifying this to find changes in banking patterns, however, poses a much more difficult problem given that people are less predictable. To accomplish this task, the engineers enabled the software to store and learn from up to four years of personal spending information from each customer. This creates a spending profile which allows it to more accurately detect behavior out of the ordinary for that customer and reduce false alarms. The new software is able to detect fraud 30% sooner than previous methods, which will help to fight the $11.4 billion lost annually in credit card fraud.
