Financial Services is an industry driven by disruption. Transformative business models such as low-cost brokerages, innovative investment products like ETFs, and the huge regulatory mandates like Gramm-Leach-Bliley are but a few examples. Here are some others:
• New fintech firms such as a recent nine billion dollar investment in Ant Financial Services Group and myriad other venture capital-led fintech startups targeting well established segments across the financial services industry
• Robo-advisor services powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning intermediating financial advisors and portfolio managers alike
• Ever changing regulatory and risk management mandates, such as GDPR, Basel III, and Open Banking, transforming customer engagement and capital allocation

Adobe automates the process of turning insights into action by connecting Adobe Analytics to other solutions in Adobe Experience Cloud, including Adobe Target and Adobe Audience Manager. Four features make this possible:
• Anomaly detection. The technology automatically analyzes trends and determines if they are statistically significant — in milliseconds.
• Analyze play button. With analytics, you can take insights and connect them to your email, DMP, and personalization platform in seconds.
• Intelligent alert. A built-in alerting system sends an SMS text or email when it detects an anomaly. There are also predictive algorithms that help you forecast how often the alert is likely to trigger. You can set these to only notify you of the most important changes.
• Intelligent recommendations. It’s simply impossible to manually create every alert you might need, so Adobe is building machine learning directly into analytics to analyze users’ behaviors. Like a virtual data assistant, it co
The past year ushered in some big changes for Online Reputation
Management (ORM) — and the practice has become indispensable for any
In 2017, review sources proliferated, consumers became more savvy about the validity of online
reviews, and the position of Chief Experience Officer started to gain traction among locationbased
organizations. ORM and SEO became increasingly intertwined as Google refined its search
algorithms with a strong emphasis on reviews and star ratings.
This year, expect to see these four trends move to the forefront:
1) Google will extend its dominance in online review volume and consumer exposure, eclipsing all
other specialty sites.
2) SEO will be reinvented as user-generated reviews weigh more heavily in search rankings.
3) The voice of the customer will no longer be siloed across disconnected categories.
4) Consumer feedback from reviews and social media will drive operational improvements.
Advances in deep neural networks have ignited a new wave of algorithms and tools for data scientists to tap into their data with artificial intelligence (AI). With improved algorithms, larger data sets, and frameworks such as TensorFlow, data scientists are tackling new use cases like autonomous driving vehicles and natural language processing. Read this technical white paper to learn reasons for and benefits of an end-to-end training system. It also shows performance benchmarks based on a system that combines the NVIDIA® DGX-1™, a multi-GPU server purpose-built for deep learning applications and FlashBlade, a scale-out, high performance, dynamic data hub for the entire AI data pipeline.
While interest in Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence/ (ML/AI) has never been higher, the number of companies deploying it is only a subset, and successful implementations a smaller proportion still. The problem isn’t the technology; that part is working great. But the mere presence and provision of tools, algorithms, and frameworks aren’t enough. What’s missing is the attitude, appreciation, and approach necessary to drive adoption and working solutions.

Imagine getting into your car and saying, “Take me to work,” and then enjoying an automated
drive as you read the morning news. We are getting very close to that kind of
scenario, and companies like Ford expect to have production vehicles in the latter part
Driverless cars are just one popular example of machine learning. It’s also used in
countless applications such as predicting fraud, identifying terrorists, recommending
the right products to customers at the right time, and correctly identifying medical
symptoms to prescribe appropriate treatments.
The concept of machine learning has been around for decades. What’s new is that
it can now be applied to huge quantities of data. Cheaper data storage, distributed
processing, more powerful computers and new analytical opportunities have dramatically
increased interest in machine learning systems. Other reasons for the increased
momentum include: maturing capabilities with methods and algorithms refactored to
run in memory; the
Machines learn by studying data to detect patterns or by applying known rules to:
• Categorize or catalog like people or things
• Predict likely outcomes or actions based on identified patterns
• Identify hitherto unknown patterns and relationships
• Detect anomalous or unexpected behaviors
The processes machines use to learn are known as algorithms. Different algorithms learn in different ways. As new data regarding observed responses or changes to the environment are provided to the “machine” the algorithm’s performance improves. Thereby resulting in increasing “intelligence” over time.
Predictive analytics is powerful. It can help drive significant improvement to an organization’s bottom line. Look for ways to use it to grow revenue, shrink costs and improve margins.
Provide a platform that enables your data scientists to work efficiently using tools and algorithms they prefer. Enhance your analyses with internal and external data, structured and unstructured data. Then make the analytics accessible in order to reap the full benefits of these valuable analyses.
Stay ahead of the curve in your market with predictive analytics, and give your organization a competitive advantage and an improved bottom line.
Unlike rules-based systems, which are fairly easy for fraudsters to test and circumvent, machine learning adapts to changing behaviors in a population through automated model building. With every iteration, the algorithms get smarter and more accurately find activities that represent risk to the firm.
How can you open your analytics program to all
types of programming languages and all levels of
users? And how can you ensure consistency across
your models and your resulting actions no matter
where they initiate in the company?
With today’s analytics technologies, the conversation
about open analytics and commerical analytics is no
longer an either/or discussion. You can now combine
the benefits of SAS and open source analytics
technology systems within your organization.
As we think about the entire analytics life cycle, it’s
important to consider data preparation, deployment,
performance, scalability and governance, in addition
to algorithms. Within that cycle, there’s a role for
open source and commercial analytics.
For example, machine learning algorithms can
be developed in SAS or Python, then deployed in
real-time data streams within SAS Event Stream
Processing, while also integrating with open systems
through Java and C APIs, RESTful web services,
Apache Kafka, HDFS and more.

Machine learning uses algorithms to build analytical models, helping computers “learn” from data. It can now be applied to huge quantities of data to create exciting new applications such as driverless cars.
This paper, based on presentations by SAS Data Scientist Wayne Thompson, introduces key machine learning concepts and describes SAS solutions that enable data scientists and other analytical professionals to perform machine learning at scale. It tells how a SAS customer is using digital images and machine learning techniques to reduce defects in the semiconductor manufacturing process.
