Pitch of Claude-Alain Roten, OrphAnalytics' CEO, to the Crypto Valley Association, Zug, Switzerland.

Question: What do you anticipate as the primary costs and revenues streams for your business? [feasibility]

« OrphAnalytics was founded in 2014. Its business is the detection of fraud and crime by comparison of styles by unsupervised machine learning. Our approach, which detects plagiarism like plagiarism detection software, is unrivaled for ghostwriting detection and for writer determination of anonymous letters.

In France for the Gregory murder case, we are the only ones to determine the suspect who writes in the style closest to that of the transcript of the 130 character letter claiming the child's murder. Our analysis of the terrorist messages in the QAnon Corpus is the first to identify two styles and therefore at least two authors. We will soon publish who writes among suspects with the style closest to that used in the QAnon messages. These two examples illustrate to prospects how to determine the writer of an anonymous message. Recently we realized that we are also able to detect accounting fraud by tracking fraudulent changes in numeric entries.

Our first costs were used to develop and validate our stylometric software. Two patents are filed. Currently, our know-how without competition is used for expert reports: 10 reports in 2021. Each new mandate allows us to finance and adapt our artificial intelligence to new needs. Our priority is to offer servers in order to obtain regular revenues. Offering servers for simple cases will lower the cost, sharing the investigation work between the clients and OrphAnalytics, the experts of OrphAnalytics remaining available for complicated cases.

The sectors where our algorithms can be used are diverse, i.e. academia, publishing, investigations, and accounting audits. Others are foreseen: fake news detection or text complexity measurement to follow the GDPR regulation. Therefore we are looking for partners for joint ventures that are looking to extend their offer..»
