Machine Learning to counter threats

A crucial factor to the survival and evolution of organisations is to harness the power of Intelligent Automation.

Intelligent Automation has infinite potential in government, healthcare, retail and finance, specifically Machine Learning, which can discover patterns to make predictions. Chief Data Officers and Chief Information Officers can leverage this technology to predict healthcare demand and supply, determine deficiencies around service quality and provide predictive data on fraud.

The use of Intelligent Automation has already helped our clients to:

  • Reduce fraud and identify threats across services
  • Drive efficiencies and optimise resources
  • Provide the best solution for their customers
  • Accelerate value creation

Our client, International Personal Finance, harnessed the power of Machine Learning for fraud detection and their model now provides them with a clear data intelligence picture and predicts future fraud patterns, enabling them to stay ahead of the threat.
