Improve Anti-Money Laundering Programs with Automated Machine Learning

Reduce costs by improving the efficiency of AML transaction monitoring using Machine Learning. Compliance organizations within banks and other financial institutions rely on machine learning to improve AML compliance programs. Today, the systems that aim to detect potentially suspicious activity are commonly rule-based and suffer from ultra-high false positive rates. Automated machine learning provides a solution to address this challenge.

In this workshop, Data Scientist May Masoud will show how to use automated machine learning to reduce false positive rates. The results: improved efficiency of AML transaction monitoring and reduced costs.

Discover how Automated Machine Learning enables you to:

  • Develop and refresh AML predictive models in a timely manner
  • Deploy more accurate models with a click of a button
  • Operationalize AML models by following a user-centric process

AI Everywhere: Canadian Tires’ Journey to Deep Value with DataRobot

AI adoption is at a tipping point. Many executives are rightly disillusioned about its potential to deliver value. They are either stuck in a cycle of experimentation, despite hefty investment, or they are struggling to scale AI’s impact beyond a handful of use cases. To realize deep value, organizations need to drive personnel growth, business growth and prepare for AI’s growth in society. When all three come together, organizations will have an engaged, thoughtful workforce, achieve AI maturity and scale that creates distance with competitors, and they’ll be prepared for macro-economic changes and even pending AI regulations.

In this session, Ricardo Baltazar from Canadian Tire will discuss their journey to increase AI fluency throughout the business. This personal focused journey has enabled Canadian Tire to scale AI quickly and effectively, increasing revenue while decreasing costs. To do so, DataRobot has acted as a trusted technology partner lowering AI barriers, adding standardized workflows and actively monitoring production AI. And, with complete visibility and transparency across all AI assets, you can realize deep value success with AI much faster. The partnership has led to AI Everywhere at Canadian Tire.

Accelerate feature engineering in Snowflake with DataRobot Automated Feature Discovery

Accelerate feature engineering by automatically generating hundreds of new valuable features across multiple datasets in Snowflake. Feature engineering is a critical part of the machine learning lifecycle that can determine the success or failure of an AI project. Designing, preparing, and testing impactful features poses significant challenges as these features are typically spread across different data sets. Using DataRobot Automated Feature Discovery, we will show how to test and create valuable new features for your machine learning models. This fast and straightforward option dramatically improves model accuracy and deepens your overall understanding of the problem at hand. 

In this workshop, Data Scientist May Masoud will show how Automated Feature Discovery integrates with Snowflake to make feature generation more accurate, faster, and cost-effective.

Learn how you can leverage Automated Feature Discovery to:

  • Discover meaningful features spread across different Snowflake datasets
  • Transform features to make them useful for models
  • Periodically recompute features with fresh data

AI Governance Leads to Faster Value

Contrary to popular belief AI governance leads to increasing the number of deep value models in production. Governance doesn’t mean burdensome processes that slow an organization down. This presentation discusses emerging trends in the AI/ML space as well as best practices to realize value more quickly with the right type of AI governance.
