New Experiences in AML through the Utilization of Machine Learning and Gen AI

The hallmark of ACTICO’s Anti-Money Laundering software is its AI readiness. By analyzing customer data with machine learning algorithms, the software categorizes customers based on their behavior, risk profiles, and other factors into distinct clusters. This segmentation allows for the identification of customer groups and the detection of patterns within the data that may indicate certain groups’ higher or lower risk levels.

Machine learning can reduce false positives by up to 40 percent. A retail bank achieved this result with ACTICO. The key to success was the combination of machine learning algorithms with rule-based processes.

After machine learning, GenAI is the next big innovation topic. Gen AI generates content and can thus assist AML experts in clarifications. One conceivable use case is that GenAI summarizes a customer’s unusual financial transactions for money laundering officers.
