Entrepreneurs and organizations across all industries currently deploy AI-based fraud detection tools to save millions of dollars annually in lost revenue. These tools leverage advanced statistical techniques to alert stakeholders of potentially suspicious activity by identifying anomalies -- which are rare items, events or observations that differ significantly from the majority of the data.

In particular, we will focus on how modern, cloud-based technology has made it easier than ever for businesses to make smarter decisions based on data.
