Fighting Fraud with AI in FinTech and Beyond


  • AI is revolutionizing fraud detection and prevention in fintech.
  • Quentexa’s CTO, Jamie Hutton, emphasizes the importance of data quality in AI systems.

AI technology has significant implications for the fintech industry, particularly in the fight against fraud and crime. Quentexa’s CTO, Jamie Hutton, discusses the use of AI in combating financial fraud and human trafficking, highlighting the technology’s ability to mimic the work of a skilled investigator. Real-time monitoring of financial risks, detecting fraud, and leveraging big data analytics are key areas where fintech is harnessing the power of AI to transform the financial industry.

While AI has made significant strides in fraud prevention, concerns around ethical and secure use of the technology are also paramount. Quentexa’s approach focuses on transparency and explainability in AI systems, allowing for compliance with fraud and crime detection regulations while addressing biases and improving data quality over time.

By creating contextual networks and utilizing entity resolution and network context, AI systems can now provide better risk assessments and detect anomalies in transactions more effectively. Combining data analytics with large language models enables fraud detection systems to mirror the processes of top investigators, enhancing detection efficiency and accuracy.

Quentexa’s partnership with the Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative (ATII) exemplifies the application of AI technology beyond financial fraud to combat illegal financial activity related to human trafficking. By deploying decision intelligence technology, Quentexa aids organizations in monitoring, detecting, and investigating financial crimes, supporting critical efforts to prevent human trafficking and money laundering. Additionally, their collaboration with the UK Cabinet Office has been instrumental in detecting fraudulent businesses taking advantage of government programs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As AI continues to evolve in the fintech sector, challenges around scamming techniques, phishing emails, and AI usage by threat actors are forefront in the industry’s agenda. Hutton predicts an ongoing arms race between detection systems and criminals leveraging AI technology, highlighting the need for continuous innovation and vigilance in fraud prevention strategies.
