Capably matching names and other personally identifiable information (PII) is critical to any effective compliance screening system: failure puts reputation, finances, and ethics on the line. Unfortunately, globalization coupled with the economic impact of the pandemic is testing screening systems like never before. As applications pour in, these systems are being asked to process key identity data in a huge variety of languages at unprecedented volumes. If these critical systems can’t keep up, everyone loses. But no one has to.

In How to Build Smart Matching with NLP, AI vet Steve Cohen will provide you with a clear roadmap for enhancing your screening systems with AI and NLP so you can cut false positives, reduce risk, and find bad actors during this crisis.

You’ll learn how to:

* Leverage NLP/AI to reduce false positives and improve accuracy in your screening

* Effectively integrate NLP/AI in even legacy technology

* Ensure the NLP/AI enhanced systems are explainable and compliant

With over two decades of experience working with government agencies and banks around the world on their toughest screening problems, we will give you the insights you need to confidently handle KYC during this challenging period.
