In this AI in Business podcast, Shri Santhanam, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Global Analytics and AI, speaks with Emerj founder, Daniel Faggella. Santhanam breaks down unique AI business opportunities and challenges. Here’s a brief summary of the 30-minute podcast:
One of the top questions we get from our lending clients is: ‘How has consumer behavior changed and what does it mean for my business.’ Historically, lenders have monitored their models and positions, and how those models would play out through scenario setting in accordance with social, regulatory and shareholder accountabilities. But the magnitude of doing this got more complicated by the pandemic.
Lenders with in-house data science and technology teams have seen the bar significantly raised for what needs to be done with advanced analytics and AI. Previously model performance was interesting and insightful. With the pandemic, the number of lending applications and loss rates has been significantly disrupted and the specific outcomes are much more defined and urgent.
Solving this problem and getting machine learning operations in order is moving much faster. Today it’s a daily requirement to look at operational activities and try to determine the frequency of high-velocity positions. But, the number one complaint we hear is “we’re running out of data science capacity” where teams are spending up to 80% of their time on data wrangling and their value isn’t being realized.
