Ashrith is the security scientist designing anomalous detection algorithms at H2O. He recently graduated from the Center of Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS) at Purdue University with a PhD in Information security. He is specialized in anomaly detection on networks under the guidance of Dr. William S. Cleveland. He tries to break into anything that has an operating system, sometimes into things that don’t. He has been christened as “The Only Human Network Packet Sniffer” by his advisors. When he is not working he swims and bikes long distances.
In this talk, Ashrith will be introducing you to the idea of using machine learning for detecting money laundering. The idea behind using ML for detecting money laundering is that the current rules-based engine have limited visibility into money movement. And as models learn the nuances of money movement, especially illegal, much better money laundering detection is possible.
