"A tectonic shift is happening in AI. Nearly 85 per cent of enterprises globally will use AI in some form or the other by 2020.

As cyber criminals find new ways to exploit technology, a new survey has said that the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for fraud detection globally would triple by 2021.

While only 13 per cent of organizations use AI and ML to detect and deter fraud, another 25 per cent plan to adopt such technologies in the next year or two — a nearly 200 per cent increase, revealed a global survey by the US-based Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) with global analytics leader SAS.


“As criminals find new ways to exploit technology to commit schemes and target victims, anti-fraud professionals must likewise adopt more advanced technologies to stop them,” Bruce Dorris, President and CEO of the ACFE, said in a statement late Monday.

About one in four organizations (26 per cent) use biometrics as part of their anti-fraud programmes and another 16 per cent foresee deploying biometrics by 2021.

“More than half of organizations (55 per cent) plan to increase their anti-fraud tech budgets over the next two years,” the findings showed.

By 2021, nearly three-quarters of organizations (72 per cent) are projected to use automated monitoring, exception reporting and anomaly detection.

Similarly, about half of organizations anticipate employing predictive analytics/modeling (52 per cent and up from 30 per cent as of today) and data visualization (47 per cent from current 35 per cent).

The survey examined data provided by more than 1,000 ACFE members about their employer organizations’ use of technology to fight fraud.

The survey respondents hailed from 24 industries globally. The size of their employer organizations ranged from less than 100 employees to more than 10,000.

“The dramatic rise of AI, ML and predictive modeling reveals that, beyond the hype, advanced analytics is helping investigators keep steps ahead of increasingly sophisticated fraudsters,” said James Ruotolo, Senior Director of Products and Marketing for Fraud and Security Intelligence at SAS.

An illustration of the rhyme Three Blind Mice

The Reformation in England is notorious for the religious impact it had on the countries of the world, and the current ongoing dispute among the various factions of Catholicism and Protestantism. Three Blind Mice, a rhyme that emerged in 1609, roughly a few years after the death of Queen Elizabeth I, is somewhat a dark reminder of the Dark Ages.

The Reformation began in England when King Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic church because he wanted to divorce his wife, to marry another woman who would bear him a male heir. His wife was a devout catholic and refused to give up her crown to another. The king decided to break away from the Papacy, from Rome, where the Catholic church reigned from. He created the Church of England, and put himself as the legal head. England broke into two factions based on religion, and after Henry's death, the country was plunged in war.
