Machine Learning and the evolution of employee fraud detection: David Speights, Chief Data Scientist, Appriss Retail
How do the latest techniques in machine learning and artificial intelligence improve the detection of employee fraud? Can an automated system that learns from the experience of prior investigations – across many retailers – identify individuals in your stores that you should build cases on today? Learn how this evolution in employee fraud detection will generate significantly improved results.
Applying the latest techniques in machine learning and artificial intelligence improves the detection of employee fraud and identification of cases of outlier behaviour. These techniques are grouped with decades of experience and learnings in the field of exception based reporting, yielding a wealth of information on the types of known retail fraud typically caused by associates. The objective of this approach is to provide an automated framework that learns from the experience of prior investigations and queries across many retailers to deliver individuals who most represent cases that were successful in the past. Additionally, applying general outlier methods to detect aberrant behaviour, which may not have been previously found, helps investigators identify new patterns of fraud which they were previously unaware. The combination of techniques is an evolution in employee fraud detection that generates significantly improved results.
