The Advantages Of Using AI In Banking

Yinglian Xie is CEO and Co-Founder of DataVisor says:

"Fraudulent transactions are extremely difficult to catch because the decision to block a transaction must occur within seconds. Adding to the problem, the number of transactions has increased along with the number of payment channels, and fraudsters take advantage of these complexities, using AI to automate online and mobile attacks. Traditional security technologies are ineffective because they can't continuously adapt to the new AI-driven threats. Furthermore, rigid authentication schemes can frustrate legitimate customers by adding friction to the customer experience, leading to churn. Advanced AI and machine learning algorithms that leverage holistic data analysis and intelligence across multiple customer touchpoints are the only way to detect and stop fraud early, before damage occurs, and without adding friction to the customer experience."
