Event Review: Machine Learning Fights Financial Crime

by David Weaver

In our latest joint webinar with BigML, our colleague, Kevin Nagel, presented how RiskShield detects fraud using the Hybrid AI approach. Atakan Cetinsoy, VP Predictive Applications at BigML, opened the event and framed the current problem with card fraud. Kevin took over from there and displayed the benefits associated with utilizing knowledge based and machine learning techniques to identify and stop fraudulent transactions.

In the end, the core message of the webinar is stated in the subtitle: “Moving from lab to production”. It is one thing to develop models, but taking the next step and utilizing them in the fraud detection process is a whole different story. With RiskShield ML, we can put models in production and enhance fraud detection efforts.
