Topic

Hunting Criminals with Hybrid Analytics

Abstract

Live demo using Python open-source libraries to build a hybrid machine-learning model for fraud detection, combining features from natural language processing, topic modeling, time series analysis, link analysis, heuristic rules, and anomaly detection. We’ll then show how we scaled to billions of events using Spark, and what it took to make the system perform and ready for production.
