Most AI-based credit risk models are black boxes that lack explainable decision-making methods. But without a transparent, group-wide framework for risk modeling, financial institutions cannot generate complex, meaningful risk measures. An AI is needed to provide financial institutions with interpretable risk management decisions and a more detailed and individualized approach to risk assessment, increasing accuracy and enabling automated thin file scoring. Third-party data integration enables more usable insights and more accurate credit risk models.

diconium and the AI technology company SparkBeyond enable the industry to fully exploit the potential of artificial intelligence (AI).


CASE STUDY 1: Banking the unbankable, Insuring the uninsurable

Solomon Alkhasov, GM SparkBeyond discusses a live example of Banking the unbankable and Insuring the Uninsurable using the deep level of insight AI offers to drive real business impact, achieving in 12 weeks what top global banks have not achieved in 2 years.

CASE STUDY 2 - Business not as usual: The disruptive impact of AI with the example of Swisscard 

Marcel Halbherr, Head of Sales and Marketing bei Swisscard, gives exclusive insight into his personal experience of harnessing the power of AI as a non-technical business user to drive disruptive business impact.
