The Challenge is:  How can Artificial Intelligence improve fraud detection and prevention in instant payments?

SWIFT Institute Student Challenge 2019 winner is team Asimov!  Congratulations to Sam Wincott of Cardiff University for his original idea to help increase fraud detection for instant payments.

The SWIFT Institute is pleased to announce the winner of our fourth annual Student Challenge is ASIMOV, a team from Cardiff University.  Sam Wincott is the only member of the team and is a Computer Science major pursuing his Bachelor of Science at Cardiff University.  His idea uses Generative Adversarial Networks in an auxiliary role to support fraud detection and prevention.

This year’s challenge saw five teams from across Europe compete at Sibos 2019 presenting their brilliant ideas to a full attending audience. Kudos to these bright young minds on their presentations.
