Topic:Advances in Machine Learning for Finance
Advances in machine learning over the past decade have tended to focus on image, text or voice recognition and processing, with impressive results. Machine learning applications in finance, economics and accounting require different methods, and advances here have been less successful. This talk surveys machine learning methods suitable specifically for finance, and reviews one particularly successful application addressing credit card fraud using Sarbanes-Oxley data and Fama-French risk factors. A systematic tuning of hyperparamters for a suite of machine learning models, starting with a random forest, an extremely-randomized forest, a random grid of gradient boosting machines (GBMs), a random grid of deep neural nets, a fixed grid of general linear models where assembled into two trained stacked ensemble models optimized for F1 performance; an ensemble that contained all the models, and an ensemble containing just the best performing model from each algorithm class. Tuned GBMs performed best under all conditions. Without Fama-French risk factors, models yielded an AUC of 99.3% and closeness of the training and validation matrices confirm that the model is robust. The most important predictors were firm specific, as would be expected, since control weaknesses vary at the firm level. Audit firm fees were the most important non-firm-specific predictors. Adding Fama-French risk factors to the model rendered perfect prediction (100%) in the trained confusion matrix and AUC of 99.8%. The most important predictors of credit card fraud were the Fama-French coefficient for the High book-to-market ratio Minus Low factor. The second most influential variable was the year of reporting, and third most important was the Fama-French 3-factor model coefficient of determination. Together these described most of the variance in credit card fraud occurrence.

Topic: AI at the “Edge”: Service Orchestration & Enactment Across IoT, Edge & Cloud Resources
Many Internet of Things (IoT) applications today involve data capture from sensors that are close to the phenomenon being measured, with such data subsequently being transmitted to Cloud data centre for analysis and storage. Currently devices used for data capture often differ from those that are used to subsequently carry out analysis on such data. Increasing availability of storage and processing devices closer to the data capture device, perhaps over a one-hop network connection or even directly connected to the IoT device itself, requires more efficient allocation of processing across such edge devices and data centres. Scalability in this context needs to consider both cloud resources and initial processing on edge resources closer to the user. We refer to these as “vertical workflows” – i.e. workflows (a combined set of services) which are enacted across resources that can vary in: (i) type and behaviour; (ii) processing and storage capacity; (iii) latency and security profiles. Understanding how a workflow can be enacted across these resource types is outlined, motivated through multiple application scenarios. The overall objective considered is the completion of the workflow within some deadline and security constraints — but with flexibility on where data processing is carried out.
