Detective Data Work: Emergent AI Practices and Anti-Money Laundering
Reducing the money flow in criminal activities had a major boast after the events of 9/11/2001. Now Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques are beginning to revolutionize practices in this field. In this session our expert panelist will explore what anti-money laundering efforts look like, and the complexities in sifting through vast data volumes, data quality and identification in an effort to make their findings ‘explainable’.
